I recently read a book call Heads or Tails by Jack Gantos. I think it was a very good book for kids at about 11 or 12 to read. This story is about a boy name Jack, which is the author himself. It tells about many events that happened during his 6th grade year. One of my favorite event that happen in this book is the event of the copy cat. He had a sister, her name is Betsy. Whatever she did he did, whatever she owned he needed to have one. One day his sister got a diary from their mother. Jack saw that his sister got a diary, he stared at his mother and asked," Wheres's mine?" and his mother answered you're not old enough to have one. Jack started to cry and roll on the floor. That left his mother with no choice but to buy him a diary. When he got his diary he was so happy. But when he tried to write, his head was blank. he didnt know what to write in it and he started filling it with "stuff" like baseball cards, dead insects, and many more other things. So it shows that Jack or the author had a really wild imagination. I really enjoyed this book because of how the author tells his story and what happens in his life. Like the part where he tried to rain his dog to act like a human and his dog got eaten by an alligator, I think any kid who reads this story will really enjoy how the author lived his 6th grade life.
