Titanic

Rating:5
Review:I liked how the auther set-up the book. It was cool because as you got farther
into the book the more exciting it got! Especially when the Titanic was sinking,
Sam and White Star had to get off or they would go down with the ship.
They jumped off the Titanic, but they had a new problem; surviving the freezing water!


Title of Book:Shedderman Secret Identity
Review by:ces-sky
Rating:3
Review: I give Shredderman 3 stars because the bully problem was interesting, but the way he took care of it wasn't the best way to do it. It made Nolan a bully himself.

Review:
Do you ever get that feeling when you have to stop, you read the next sentence, and you end in a really good spot? Well this is a book that you might get that feeling of.
The title of the book is called, Escaping the Giant Wave. The author of the book is Peg Kehert. Most of the characters are BeeBee, Kyle, and their parents.
They all live in Kansas City. BeeBee, Kyle, and their parents go on a vacation to Oregon! BeeBee has never been out of her home state, or been on a plane. Kyle remembers a sign at the beach, then the next time their parents go out. While the parents aren’t home something goes wrong while the kids are alone.
My recommendation would probably be for kids who like fiction books because it is a really good book to read anytime! I love the part in the middle! So don’t forget to check out this book at the library!

Title of Book: Escaping the Giant Wave
Review by: Hebron Elementary School - Mr. Jones's class grade 6
Rating:4.5 stars
Review: It was an interesting book filled with adventure, suspense, and action. It was easy to relate to because the main character was a kid like us. This could really happen so that made it scary to imagine this in real life. We recommend this book to you all.


Title of Book: White Star a Dog on the Titanic
Review by: TMS-MarieB
Rating: 5
Review:
Have you ever imagined yourself on the Titanic, the boat that everyone claimed was unsinkable? Well, put yourself in Sam’s shoes, a 12 year-old British boy who always puts Star’s needs in front of his own. Who’s Star you wonder? Star is a large, red Irish setter who is one of the best dogs in the White Star modeling line. Wait, you don’t believe that there were dogs on the Titanic? Well, there were, even large dogs like Star. While the Titanic was sinking, some owners abandoned them on the boat and they drowned. Wait, you don’t understand? Let me back up…
Sam’s mom got married and moved to America with her husband. She told Sam that she’d be gone six months and that she would send for him and that he would travel to America on a boat. It turned out to be six years before they sent for him! Finally, he got to go to America. He traveled over to America on the Titanic but in was the night that the magnificent vessel sank!! Nobody believed the boat was sinking until the boat was tipped over in the ocean. They had a band playing until the last few minutes. While the Titanic started to sink the crewmembers were loading the women and children into the lifeboats. Sam refused to get in a lifeboat without his faithful companion, Star. Sam ran up to the kennel and saved him. He quickly latched a life vest on both of them and then as the boat started to sink they jumped off it. The frigid water wasn’t going to break Sam and Star up, because they had latched onto each other for life. They swam a bit until a lifeboat came. A man in the lifeboat said, “Hop in, kid.” Sam asked if he could bring Star aboard, but the man refused because he thought that there wasn’t enough room in the boat. Sam said that he wouldn’t get in the lifeboat without Star. A few minutes later Sam happily listened to a woman that said that there was enough room in the boat and convinced the man to let Star aboard. As Star was climbing aboard, his tail got caught and bent painfully backwards. His injury disfigured him and he could never be a show dog again. Will Sam and Star make it to America or are they to this day lying at the bottom of the ocean. Read the book to find out.
The main characters are Sam, Star, and Mr. Ismay. Mr. Ismay is Star’s owner who was bringing him to America so he could do more modeling with the White Star line. Even as a dog, Star still saved Sam’s life by helping him float and swim around until they could find a lifeboat that could fit both of them. Most of all, Sam saved Star’s life by freeing him from the kennel when the boat was sinking.
His most valued/treasured items on the boat (before it sank) were the letters from his mother. Those letters were sent to him often during the six years that he lived at his grandmother and grandfather’s house. As the Titanic sunk, like many other items the letters went down with it and were lost forever.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys learning about history and suspense. You should pick up this book, find a comfortable chair, and read it right now.

Title of Book: The Lightning Theif
Review by: TMS-JessicaF
Rating: 5
Review:= = "Her eyes began to glow like barbecue coals. Her fingers stretched, turning into talons. Her jacket melted into large, leathery wings.” (Page 12) Can you imagine your least favorite teacher about to lunge at you with fangs and claws? Well, that’s what Percy Jackson experienced before he went to Camp Half-Blood.

Camp Half-Blood is the main setting of the story where Percy and his two best-friends, Annabeth and Grover; get all their training before they go on the quest to find the lightning bolt that was stolen. One of the activities there is Sword Fighting. When Percy was practicing sword fighting with his camp-counselor, they stopped for a break. Percy poured a cup of cold water on him and then felt completely refreshed, and all of his bruises and wounds where healed. After many other strange experiences with water, the director, Mr. D realized that he was the son of Poseidon, the God of water. He then went on a quest with his two best-friends Annabeth and Grover. (Grover also went too, so he could get his searchers licenses) They had to face deadly monsters that could shred a human into little tiny pieces. One of the monsters they encountered was Medusa. She tricked them into thinking she was a lonely old lady with no one to talk to. She was really the woman on the cover of the book with snakes for hair, and one look at her and you turn into a stone statue. Once Percy completed the quest, he had to return the lightning bolt to his Uncle Zeus. But if Percy, Annabeth, and Grover didn’t return the bolt before the summer solstice, then there would be a huge war between the Gods. The God’s house was on the 600th floor of the Empire State building, (which you know dose not exist,) but it was invisible to the human eye.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a suspenseful book that you won’t be able to put down. Don’t you want to know what happens to Percy, Annabeth, and Grover, or if they return the bolt before the summer solstice? Well, then read the book to find out!
