When I read it, I couldn’t put it down—I was actually scolded for reading it at work. Whoops! I could easily see this book becoming a future classic, so you simply must read it before your teacher makes you and takes the fun out of it....more

I guess what the writer is trying to say is by understanding who you truly are and how you become the person you are today can inspire you to make a difference. People of mixed heritage raise interesting questions. Obama explores many of these, leading readers to wonder with him, why, for example a man fathered by a white American mother, her parents, and an Indonesian stepfather, would gravitate toward the African half of his identity. Also must a person who is half white such as Obama, accept America’s designation of such people as black? While Obama offer thoughtful meditations on several aspects of his situation, he may well have decided that fully answering such questions would have bogged down the brisk pace of his narrative. With an engaging authorial voice and a keen eye for telling details, Obama takes his grassroots efforts to help African American’s in Chicago to his search in Kenya for a solid connection with the father he barely knew. Going back to the claim of hardship, juggling trying to make a difference, searching for any connection to a father he barely know (identity), and dealing with racism. Obama is an inspiration for going through all those hardships, but knowing he did the best he can.
It was a good book, I ratted it three stars. I would recommend to anyone that's interested....more

Each person has theirIn the book My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult, it’s hard for the family knowing that one of their own is battling with cancer. Each person has their own perspective on how they are dealing with the situation. What the author wants us (the reader) to understand is that even though times are hard, you got to make the best of it and move on. The big hardship is Cancer; Kate (main character/cancer patient) has acute promyelocytic leukemia. She was diagnosed when she was two years old. Her younger sister Anna (main character) is an allogeneic donor, a perfect sibling match. She provides leukocytes, stem cells or bone marrow to try to keep her sister alive. Tying back to the main idea of hardship; Anna being the donor won’t fully treat Kate’s body, it’s fooling itself thinking the cancer will go away. It’s just keeping her alive as long as possible. Eventually she’s going to die, the family has to go through whether Kate should die slowly happily or keep trying to heal her cancer (affecting Anna’s health). The parent’s obviously don’t want to give up on Kate, because it’s hard to let go. It also can say a lot about a person letting go of a loved one. This shows strength and courage within you.
I personally gave this book 5 stars because this is a very good book. This is a really powerful book because this issue is real. A lot of people in the world have leukemia. But overall this is a good book, and everyone would love it too. I guarantee that any person that reads this book will start crying because of how emotional this issue is. ...more

Caitlin is so happy to be wthis book is about a girl named Caitlin who starts dating a guy named Roger. There's something about him that's different. Caitlin is so happy to be with him, and everything is going great. But then he starts getting her into bad things, and eventually he becomes really controlling and starts abusing her. Caitlin doesn't know what to do, until finally her parents notice the marks all over her body from him beating her. He gets sent to jail and Caitlin is safe. So it was scary but in the end she was safe and he could not hurt her anymore. I found a text-to-world connection. This book connects to real life because there are countless cases in life where girls have boyfriends or husbands that abuse them. They are to scared to say something becauase they dont want to get hurt any more. I rated this book a 5 because this book was beautifully written. ...more

This book is about a girl named Veronica aka Ronnie who mom makes her move to her father's for the summer with her little brother. She doesn't like that her mom made her do this. Ronnie was upset at her father for leaving Ronnie, her mom, and her little brother. So as the summer goes on she meets this guy name Will. In the beginning she didn't like him because the first day they met he bumped into her spilling a strawberry milkshake on her. Until one day when Ronnie found a raccoon eating the baby turtle eggs. So as she tries to protect the baby turtle eggs she calls the aquarium so a guard could take care of the eggs. Then she realizes that the guard is Will. At first she was upset but then she started falling for him as he did with her. Ronnie finds out really sad news and why her and her brother were sent to be with there father for the summer. Her father had lung cancer. It was really devastating. About a year ago a church was lit on fire. That's what caused the lung cancer. Everyone blamed Ronnie's dad for the fire because he was the last one in there. But he didn't do it. It was Will's friend who caused the fire. Ronnie finds out that Will kept that secret from Ronnie the whole time, so she breaks up with him because she couldn't trust him no more. Days after the break up Ronnie's father dies. He died when Ronnie was finishing the song that her dad made for her. Then Will comes back to go to the church where Ronnie's dad was in a coffin. Then she plays the song to everybody. Days after the death and the funeral Will comes back so Ronnie would give him another chance. So she did.
I can relate this book to the world. I can relate it because people around the world get lung cancer from second hand smoke, smoking, almost a lot of things. But cancer is a really strong issue in life because you may never know the ones you truly care about in life can have cancer or any kind of disease.

She would be the type of person who would pick fights with anyone who bothered her or hurt her friends. Marisa meets Rene when their phones are accidentally switched when she goes to fight Roberto her best friend’s boyfriend that hurt her best friends feelings. No matter what Marisa does she couldn't stop thinking about Rene.
A connection that I can make would be a text to text connection (T-T). I can connect this book to twilight because the first time Bella saw Edward she couldn't stop thinking about him.Bella was so into him and she was so curious about him and his life. It so cute, sweet, and romantic.
I would give this book 4 and a half stars because this was a cute book. I can connect to this book in many other ways. I'm sure if anyone else read this book that they would be able to connect to this book. This book is so romantic. Its cute that the person you least expect yourself to be with, you ended up being with. ...more

This reminds me of the book new moon. Because Bella sorta broke up with Jacob. And at the end they (Bella, Jacob, Edward) were in the forest and Jacob was about to hurt Edward to protect Bella. But in "Audrey, Wait!" Even rights a break up song because Audrey broke up with him.
This book was really, really, REALLY boring...I don't think anyone should really read it. I gave this book 2 stars because I thought the book would be more interesting. In the beginning it was interesting but as it got to the middle it got boring. This book didn't catch my interest. ...more
