Each person in our classroom has an assigned number and a basket in which he or she chooses a book that he or she thinks other people in our class should read. On Friday of each week, four to five students will have their choices featured here. In addition, each students' choice for the week will be listed.
Student #18: El Deafo by Cece Bell is a great book. I like it because it’s funny, and it’s full of entertainment. This book is cool because it shows how you don’t have to listen about what people say to you, just be yourself.
Student #19: My book recommendation is a book called Nighttime: Too Afraid to Scream by Todd Strasser. I like it because it has multiple stories. One of my favorites is "The Hitchhikers." I like it because the hitchhikers appear next door in the cabin to the protagonists at the end, and the dad drops the coffee.
Student #22: Ranger’s Apprentice by John Flanagan is a very good book. I recommend it because my brother read it and loved it. It’s about an apprentice who learns to be a ranger and goes to different lands and fights in wars.
