Book review guidelines:
Refugee, by Alan Gratz
"I can't describe with words how much I enjoyed this book. It is about three different refugees fleeing from different places for different reasons at different times. The plot is amazingly fluid, the author moves between characters at exactly the right time, the ending blew my mind, and the characters are so interesting. It is a novel, but it is still set in real time periods with real historical situations. Now, my opinion. Have you read the last part? This book was incredible. It managed to be distinguished, thrilling, fun, and suspenseful. I would recommend this to anybody and everybody and it is very distinguished." - Avi R., 7th grade.
See You in the Cosmos, by Jack Cheng
"See you in the cosmos was a very good book. It is about a boy named Alex who is 11. Each chapter is a recording filmed on his i pod. This book was very creative and exiting and once you start reading it, you just really want to know what happens next." -Noah K.
Forget Me Not, by Ellie Terry
"This book is a love story in the raw. It is about a girl who's mom is dating, breaking up and moving. It is sad at some times but is definitely a Newbery contender. I love the plot and the characters are very real." - Micah W., 4th Grade
