Absolutely Normal Chaos

I really loved this book because it’s the journal of Mary Lou Finney from the book, Walk Two Moons. I loved that book, too. But this tells you what happened to Mary Lou Finney in the summer before they started school. Mary Lou Finney really hates the idea of writing a journal when a brand new teacher might be reading her journal. But then Mary Lou gets an unexpected surprise. Her cousin Carl Ray has come to live with them until he finds a job. That makes Mary Lou really mad and gives her a lot to write about in her journal. She has to make his bed and he’s always hogging the TV. But luckily her summer becomes...

I really thought this was a sad book because a lot of people die. And it’s sad because this is what happened back in the 1920’s. Billie Jo lives with her mother and father.

The Music of Dolphins

I think this is the most interesting book I’ve ever read. It’s about a girl who was raised by dolphins. Isn’t that weird? I’ve never heard of anything like this before. Mila was a teenager when she was found off the coast of Cuba. She was spotted with dolphins. Mila was then take to a house with doctors who taught Mila music and language. But Mila doesn’t like all the new things she’s learning. Mila remembers nothing of herself. All she wants is to go back to her dolphin home. This is a fairly easy book to read because Mila is learning English so there are fairly easy words in the story. I liked this book because of Mila....

Pokemon HeartGold & SoulSilver: Official Strategy Guide

This strategy guide or ‘cheat book’ is very helpful down the road in Pokémon. This book gives you the all the Pokémon gym leaders weaknesses and what Pokémon they have. If you get past any of that and are going to battle the champion, you might need this book. This book is good for the Johto region only. It offers a bird’s eye view of a route that you might have trouble getting through. It’s especially good in the forest. There are descriptions of the gym leaders, the elite four and the Pokémon league champion. I really found the book helpful and it made playing the game a lot...
