8th Grader Jeremiah’s Top 4 Books of 2013 January 10, 2014

1.Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper


I liked it because I thought I could relate to it because I knew a friend who played sports and died in a car crash .

2.Forged By Fire by Sharon Draper


The only reason why I read this book was because I read other books by her and they were good and this book was great.

3.The Recruit by Robert Muchamore


I thought it was great how a boy who was good at math but never showed it and who always got in trouble got in a secret organization.

4.The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick


I read this for a class book and really enjoyed it because it was so detailed.

    I knew you loved those Sharon Draper books. Mrs. Squires has other ones on the library that I’m sure you would like! And if you liked The Recruit, you could also try the others in the series. Thought about you the other day- do you ever try anything by Tim Green? He writes a lot of sports book- keep reading!
