Book Fourteen: To Kill a Mockingbird

Author: Harper Lee

Rating 8 out of 10

Summary: This story follows the lawyer's life of Atticus Finch, the father of Jean Louise Finch and Jem Finch. He has a duty to defend Tom Robinson from becoming imprisoned in Maycomb County.

Comments: This book is hard to understand at first, the exposition is quite difficult to understand, and the prologue of the story is dull. It is not much exciting at the beginning, but later in the end, the story begins to flourish and grow up as we begin to realize each characters' personalities and perspectives.

Book Twelve: Goosebumps The Horror at Camp Jellyjam

Author: R.L Stine
Rating: 10 out of 10
Comments: I love the suspense that this book gives. It shows that Wendy and Elliot are fortunate to enter this camp, because their parents had accidentally driven away from them when Wendy and Elliot were driving the trailer.
Summary: Wendy and Elliot had unexpectedly entered Camp Jellyjam with a trailer that was no longer attached to the parent's car. They found every sport that is played in the camp. Just think of it: archery, basketball, ping-pong, tennis, swimming, baseball, softball, soccer, etc. But why are the counselors always smiling? What does the camp slogan "Only The Best" means? Why is the ground always shaking late at night? You will found out in this book!

Book Eleven: Unmentionable!

Author: Paul Jennings
Rating: 9 out of 10
Comments: The eight stories were fascinating. Most of the top stories from this book that I really enjoyed was the Birdman. Why? Sean and Spider found this cat hat inside a bottle. The cat hat can copy any action that it sees and transfers it to the wearer.

Book Ten: Ender's Game

Author: Orson Scott Card
Rating: 9 out of 10
Comments/Remarks: Ender was the chosen one who became a leader in the militia government to defend Earth from the aliens. Aliens have already attacked twice, and the humans almost perished, but still claimed victory. Ender is chosen to repel the aliens. He knows that time is running out, but can he save planet Earth? This book is quite interesting the way it is planned out. There are new vocabulary words that you might not know, such as pseudonym and ostentatious, but once you understand the concept, you will know how Ender's life goes.

Book Nine: Unbelievable!

Author: Paul Jennings
Rating: 9 out of 10
Comments on this Book: Plainly good stories, but not the best I have read. The best stories so far are The Busker and One-Shot Toothpaste. Not totally recommended, but recommended enough if you desire to read it.
