The Lions of Little Rock

Marlee is a quiet girl who doesn’t talk to most people. When a girl named Liz goes to her school she starts to “open up” and gain confidence in talking. But then Liz gets caught “passing” for white and has to leave school unexpectedly without anyone knowing. Marlee wants Liz back because she was a true friend to her. However JT and his brother Red do not like colored people. So she must fight the dangers of being caught and of segregationists if she wants her friend back.

1.) Back for you

This is a really good book and I enjoyed reading it. I think that someday I’ll go back and read it again.

2.) Little Things

This book was really good at describing places, and people. However it does make you wonder about the events that happened. I think it could have more description on the events.

3.) Is this what you call a sequel? Really?

I think this book covered a lot about history. Although it is a fiction story it had real events in it. I think that there should be a sequel because there are still questions that I want answered.

4.) Lights, Camera, Action

I really don’t think that it needs a movie. The author did a really good job at describing things so I already have an image in my head of what happened.

5.) And the problem was?

This book had a problem all the way to the end of the book. It also had small little problems too so it made it hard to put the book down.

Back for you                                                                                                                                         I need a book that will keep me interested the whole way. Will it be so good that I’ll come back for it? Or will it be mediocre, and I’ll be bored the entire time? It has to be a book that doesn’t answer all the questions in the beginning. It has to be a book that I’ll come back for.

Little Things                                                                                                                                   Does this book not have enough information? Are problems happening without you knowing? I need a book that will tell me a good amount of important detail. It can’t say thing that aren’t important, but it must tell me the 5 W’s. Who? What? Where? When? Why?

Is this what you call a sequel? Really?                                                                                                 I hate when an author makes a second or third book that doesn’t really relate to the first one. Sequels are mostly never as good as the first one. Like, why couldn’t the author write what they needed to in one book? Or is it worth writing a sequel? Are they trying to make us waste our money?

Lights, Camera, Action

Some books have movies, but do they really need one? I mean when you read the book, it should have enough details to make a picture in your head.

And the problem was?                                                                                              A book has to have some type of problem. Whether it be a murder mystery or romance troubles. That’s the purpose of writing it right? It needs to have a problem that lasts the entire book. It has to be solved by the end of the book and not leave you hanging like a cliff hanger. Also the end needs to make sense.
