The boook that I am reading is called that was then, this is now by S.E. Hinston.This book is a good book because the life of the characters can be reality to some peoplen in life.One thing that I like about this book was that the two main characters stay together no matter what. One dislike about this book is the title because the title makes it sound like the two main characters won't have that same relationship they did.

Al Capone Does My Shirts
Is acceptable, but not the type of book I would read.I Think the book so far is not that good. It has a lot of background information, and nothing exciting is really happening.

"that was then this was now", so far I really like the book. It's intersting and always holds my attention, but I feel like something sad is going to happen that's going to make me not want to read it anymore.

Book Title: A Long Way from Chicago
Some things I like: The humor aspect of the stories plot and how each chapter is a new year (1934, 1935, etc.) unlike chapter 1....and so on.
I wonder: What will the end of the book look like because so far the story is just what happens every year to the children.
I dislike: How sometimes the events can become confusing.

The book I'm reading is The Rules Of Survival.This book to me is worth-while.I know people that go though things like this in their life.A child should not have to go threw the things they go threw in their life.They should be able to have fun for their teenage years.A mother should not act like they are still a teenager or in their mid 20's.They should take care of the kids they made; This book is very interesting

I like it so far, but it's a little bit boring. Not much is really happening, even though i'm about halfway through the book. But hopefully things will get interesting soon. :)

This book I am reading is "Among the Hidden." I am enjoying it so far but I am really wondering whether the kid in the window of the other house that Luke saw was hidden away like him or not. If so, will Luke ever meet him or even see him again? Also, although I understand Luke's father wanting to be extra safe about not getting caught, I believe he is being a little too strict and mean to Luke.

The book i am reading is a Long Way from Chicago. The book is pretty good so far. The grandmother always has something funny u her sleeves and makes me wonder whats shes going to do next. I dint really like the first chapter it was confusing. It makes me wonder how their going to end the book.

The book I am reading is called The Rules of Survival. This book is very interesting because the mother is very lunatic and does things that almost kills her children and even her. One thing I like though, is that the book has some humor in it in very different situations. I do wonder if the mother gets taken away from her children at the end of the story and the kids get a happier life.

Catch a Tiger By the Toe

My book so far is in a way boring. It dosen't have much action and is kind of boring. Some interesting things have happened so far though. The main characters (Jamie) father was exposed as a communist and many people in the book that she knows have been accused of being a communist even if they're not. Its becoming hard to trust anyone for Jamie and other people because at any given time you don't know if your going to be turned in as a communist, especially during the time in which Jamie grew up which was the ''Red Scare''. Over all my book is definitely not great but it has a lot of great history.

The name of my book is called "Hurricane Song" and it is a very good book! The book is fiction but it's based on true events. It's about Hurricane Katrina and when it hit New Orleans. It was a tragic time for the people there. They pretty much lost everything they had and those who stayed behind had to live in the Superdome, which was crowded with thousands of people. This book is very interesting and sad at the same time. I would definetly recommed this book to others.

My book is the Rules of Survival.Some things that I like about my book are that it is sort of like a mystery.Also I like my book because it seems like this is what people go through in their life.Some things that I dont like is that kids shouldn't have to see their parents go through these things, and the kids shouldn't have to go and search for there moms ex to get certain infornmation about her.

My Book About The Rules Of Survial IS Realistic Book Its Not Related To The Holicost. In My Book There IS This Girl named Emmy Who Like's This Boy Name Murdoch But What She Dosen't Know Is That Her Sister Callie Like's Him Too. I Like My Book Because It Seems interesting And It Relates To Us Kids Now Like Callie Was Writing Her Name And Murdoch Last Name Like How We Do Now.

The book I'm reading is "The Rules Of Survival". So far the book is really good. I like that it's interesting and it keeps you wondering what will happen next. One thing i dislike though is that the book is told back in time. so it kind of confuses you if what your reading is happening to them at the moment, or is it something that already happened to them. Overall I would recommend the book to someone trying to find an exciting book.

The book that I am reading is called "The Rules of Survival." This book is extremely interesting, and quite a page turner. I like how much of a thriller it is, because you don't know what is going to happen next. It is not at all predictable, so it keeps you on edge. I also like that the book is very intriguing, yet still realistic. The mother in this book is abusive, and a bit crazy, and although this idea may be foreign to some people, it does happen. In fact, it is not all that rare.

The book I am reading is "Al Capone Does My Shirts". What I do not like about the book is that I find many of the characters annoying. What I like about the book is that it has an interesting story line. I wonder what type of mental disability Moose's sister has in the book.

the title of my book is Catch A Tiger By The Toe. In the book so far Jamie is afraid that her dad will get fired and they might get killed. One thing i like about the book is that Jamie is a lot like me and one thing i dislike is that the book isn't as interesting as i thought it was gonna be.

The book i am reading is A Long Way From Chicago. So far the book is good. Its about two children going to visit their grandmother and she is funny, and crazy. They did a lot of things on their vacation so far like stole a boat and tried to escape. They went to an old lady's house and she was talking to the grandmother any kind of way. My book is good and funny so far, [it reminds me a lot of my grandmother].

I like this book because Miles is just trying to fight for his dad's love and REAL attention for who he is, all the while overcoming obstacles like the gangs and the shooting.

I don't like all of the cuss words in the book.

The book is known as "Rules of Survival." It's a great and interesting book because it seems so realistic. The fact that Nikki is so insane adds a thrilling and intense feeling to it. None of the things she does are unrealistic either. I really lovr how not a single person in this book is perfect, but some of them better themselves.

The book in which I have read for the literature circle project was called "A Long Way from Chicago." Although it may have been a good read for someone who enjoyed or did for care about the formatting of the story, I for was was quite displeased. I do not care for collections of literary works, unless each one has connections or references to the others. The stories were somewhat amusing though held little engagement. I didn't care for these characters, nor did I feel a strong connection towards one.Not to say they were all absolutely dreadful, It's just none of them really stood out to me personally. There is nothing left to wonder about this book as I have already completed it and I hold no further interest in it other than to review the nessicarities for the project.
