I like the wood song because it have a lot of details in the book like when the dog had blood when the dog push the blood comes out of the dogs bottom. That calles detail. It will be Gary Paulsen because all of his books is details and he repeats the words like this is the end of day one stuff like that so in the crossing it got the same thing like it repeats the words like the first meeting the second meeting.

My favorite book of the has had to be Woodsong because theses books that Gary Paulsen has been writing because they are so cool and I like Woodsong the most because out of all his books I have read this is the one that has the most details and explains a lot. For example when Gary Paulsen was describing the red squirrel eating the chipmunk he said something like “ the red squirrel ate the chipmunks guts out inside the brown long log” that make me visualize like I was actually there in the moment and I can feel my gut hurting for the fact that he is such a descriptive writer and he either makes you feel it or see it or makes you feel as if you was there. And that is why I like Woodsong and Gary Paulsen.

My favorite book I read this year was Woodsong. Woodsong was bout Gary Paulsen in the Iditarod dog race. It was bout his adventure there and him trying to survive. The pain and joy h had when he was there. That book, (just like all the others) was very descriptive. That is why I loved that book. All the blood and the vomit, eeewwww. It was gross but awesome.

The favorite book I read this year was wood song. Wood song is a good book. I think that the author of wood song (Gary Paulsen) is good he has details in all his books. He puts so many details in his writing that I can picture it in my head. Every thing that happen in the dotard race he told us details an I can see everything he describe in my head.
My favorite author now is Gary Paulsen before I like Katherine Paterson because the book bridge of the Terabithia that book was good because of the details an the book was crazy because of the animals an the creatures an the trees they were alive but the book was like a big dream.

Well I have a numbers of them so it’s hard to choose one. My favorite book this year was from the BLUEFORD SERIES my favorite book is THE BULLY. My favorite book is THE BULLY because the same things kind of happen to me. It happen to be because in the book it said he move to a new country and he was being peek on by a kid that was bigger than him in size and he had no control over it. He had to face his fear and did what was right by fighting him. It happen to me because I here from a different country and I did not know any on and it was this girl that was much much bigger than me and kept peeking on me until I did not know what to do but face my fear so I had to do what was Wright for me. It turn out that I was tougher than her in strength. That is why THE BULLY was my favorite book.

My favorite book this year has been The Great Gilly Hopkins. This is my favorite book because I like how Gilly was a mean person but when she went to this family she starts to be nice and when she meant her mom her mom didn’t want to see her. So she went back to the family that cared for her. So I really like how she found a family that was right for her. My favorite author is Ann M. Martin I have been reading her books since the third grade I like her writing a lot because there’s always conflicts in her book and all the conflicts in her book always can be resolved.

My favorite book this year has been Bridge to Terabithia, and WoodSong. Bridge to Terabithia was one of my favorite books because Katherine Patterson was very descriptive in this story (even though she is descriptive in all her books) but anyways I like this book because this book in the book, Jess and Lesley and how there are not friends and them become friends but right when they are so close something bad happens… I like this book so much that I would recommend this book to anyone that wanted to know what book to read and I would say Bridge to Terabithia, this book is so good that I can’t finds words that would describe how much I like this book. Another good book is WoodSong because again Gary Paulsen is a descriptive writer and in this book he makes you picture a lot if detail for example when he past that Chipmunk eating the inside of the squirrel it was so descriptive it was like you were there and if you want to read a descriptive book look up Gary Paulsen. My favorite author is Gary Paulsen and Katherine Patterson, because they are very descriptive and they can make picture in your head. Also they know how much detail to put in the books to not make it so dell.p

Well I don’t have favorite books. I do like Begging For Change, also a series that goes by the name of Drama High. Right now I am reading Begging For Change, this book is about a girl name Raspberry and she lives with her mom in a apartment after been homeless, she has a bum father who lives In the street and smells like trash because that what he does all day mess with trash. I like this book because she is struggling her mom got hit in the head with a pipe. Also they have no money, her mom and her friend’s dad is seeing each other. On the other hand Drama High is about a high school girl and her friends and boyfriends. It also fun for teenagers to read because its like our times, like those thing happens to us.
My favorite author is year I think will be Paul Langan, If he sound unfamiliar to you he wrote some of the Bluford Series books. Those books are also good to for young people to read, and also I like it because he makes the book interesting to read like you just want to keep on reading, like for example he would say something at the end of the chapter do you would want to read the next chapter. If he finished a chapter and its good and you like it at the end of each book it says DON’T MISS or READ or something like that for you to keep reading. His a good author even dough he is not well known.

My favorite book this year is Wood song because that book is like really descriptive. It’s descriptive because when it talks about when someone gets injured he talks about what’s have been going in his life. The best part of the story was the Iditarod race. The Iditarod race was better because it got more action and adventure. The race was the fun part to read because it was going through a rough race. A women was frozen died by flies that was eating her alive and she now doing nothing to keep them away. My favorite author is Gary Paulsen because he only talks about his life. So far he is my best author.

My favorite book this year has been The Gun. This book was my favorite because this book to me was very descriptive in a way. It shows how the main character was struggling thought out the whole book in a way that I understood witch was very help full to me. I loved the way the author made it seem like this book was about the life of an every day teen with struggles difficulties and major problems with schools friends and family. For example the story The Gun is mostly about a bully like kid that was feared through out his school until on day he was humiliated publicly and lost all of his respect and also got in a large amount of trouble. So now he was seeking revenge the only way he could witch was by getting a gun involved.
M y favorite author this year has been Katherine Paterson. I choose her as my favorite author because she is a very descriptive writer in many ways. One of her ways of being a descriptive writer is how she leaves you with mental image of what is going on in her books. All of Katherine’s books relate to a you adults and a teens life and hers too. Helps us set future goals and mind sets

My favorite author this year was Gary Paulsen. He was my favorite author this year because I have read a lot of his books and as a lot of people say he really is very descriptive.
Out of all his books my favorite one is Wood Song, in that book my favorite part of it was when Gary was talking about how the antelope was being devoured, he was being so descriptive about it. He was talking about how its saliva was coming out of his mouth and everything. Gary Paulsen really is a great writer.

My favorite book so far this year was Roll Of Thunder Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor. She is pretty good, great, smart wise (etc.) writer. Some day I would like to meet her and talk to her about my writing skills and what kind of things I write. Honestly I think that "if" my writing was a little bit more advanced I could be as good as her. My question for her would be "where did you get the idea or inspiration to write ROTHMC?" She has been writing for a long time, she is now in her 60's-70's now and lets hope she dose not stop writing.

My favorite book this year was bridge to terrabithea and my favorite author is Kathryn Patterson. The reason why that was my favorite book I read so far is because after we got done reading that book we did a good project about it and that my favorite book because that was a book that I like really got into. Also one of the reason why this is my favorite book is because it made me want to read more and we did a lot of work on things that happen in that book. Also it was my favorite because there were a lot of things you have to find out in the book. And the reason why she is my favorite author is because she writes good books that are my type of books and my type of books are books that always leaving a reader wanting more and that is how she left me

My Favorite book is my independent reading book is called Killing Mr. Griffin. This is my favorite book because it has page-turning thrillers. This book can make you imaging what’s happening in the story. My favorite part is when they actually caught Mr. Griffin. My favorite author is J.K. Rowling. She my favorite author because she makes my favorite books called Harry Potter. Her best book was Harry Potter 4. It’s full title is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. That book was the best I ever read. That is why J.K. Rowling is my favorite Author.

My favorite book that I read this year was my independent book called Forged By Fire. I think this book is my favorite out of this entire year because Sharon Draper wrote it and she’s a good author because of her ways of writing. But I enjoyed Forged By Fire so much because the main character named Gerald was going through so much with his mom and his abusive stepfather and even though it was hard, he got through it. His little sister Angel was the one who was getting abused and he protected he. By the end, they got through all their troubles. He wanted to leave his house so bad; he couldn’t because of his sister safety. That reminds me of myself because even I have hard times sometimes I always get through like Gerald did, and never give up. My favorite author this year Katherine Paterson because the way that she wrote was like SO descriptive! And when she wrote it was so real like you can visualize and when you read it you can relate to it. In like Flip Flop Girls, you can really visualize all the pain that Vinnie is going through by losing her father and Mason’s pain is worst because he’s young and doesn’t really understand it. That’s why I think he ran away.

My favorite is Roll Of Thunder Hear my Cry the reason why that is my favorite book because they go through so much in that book. My evidence is when Lillean Jean did not like Cassie and lillean jean be mean to Cassie and then Cassie had a plan for Llliean jean she started to do work for lillean jean the when it got to the point Cassie beat the snot out of lillean jean plus it was a age difference Cassie was 9 and Lillean jean was 13 so if lillean jean told anybody Cassie has a lot of dirt on Lillean jean so if she told Cassie will just tell her secret. Now we got uncle Hammer he did not like the fact that Mr. Simmons had pushed Cassie and when Uncle Hammer out he was going Basert. The Logan children would walk to school everyday they would get splashed by a bunch of white kids on a bus the. The Logan children found a way to handle that one of the Logan children would skip lunch you could skip lunch back then so he dug up a whole so when they would walk to school they won’t get splashed anymore because he dug up that whole. That is my favorite book.

My favorite book this year was the Bluford series,"Lost and found" and "Matter of Trust"(what i read so far),because it's based on real life events, and the things that are happening in these books seem like things that could happen in real life, and i love drama and these books has a lot of drama in them, so that's a good thing, and it makes me want to go buy the Bluford series at a book store. My favorite author is Katherine Paterson, because her books are very interesting too, and i think she's a very talented writer and i like that, i would want to become a writer just like her. Props to Katherine Paterson and Anne Scraff.

My favorite author is Anne Schraff (BlueFord series) because I like how she writes about things that teenager do. For example in matter of trust there is a lot of jealousy and drama. Her books have a lot of drama and they’re really interesting and the title always catches my eyes. Anne Schraff uses a lot of descriptive words. The books she writes are book that teenager really want to read cause of the topic or themes she writes about some of the topic she writes about I can relate to them or I know someone. Also she uses real peoples name for her characters. Every time I red these books I can’t stop reading it or put the book down.

My favorite book so far this year is "Wood song". Wood song was very discritive in the events that ocured can make you picture it like if you were right there when it happend.

My favorite author was Kathrin Paterson. She may have not been the most discripive writer but she is my favorite because she writes for evry one espesialy kids.

My favorite book this year was the matter of trust by Anne Schraff. It was my favorite book because I liked the part when Hakeem was having a fight with someone in the parking lot. But the messed up part was when the guy Hakeem was fighting got shot in the forehead. I also liked the part when Darcy's father came back. But I thought he wouldn't come back because he left Darcy's mother for some women in their twenty's.
My favorite author is Anne Schraff because when she makes books she makes the stories as if they were real like in the matter of trust. Like when Darcy got into a fight with her ex best friend over a guy. That would really happen to someone. Another one is that she put actual people in the book like when she decades a book to someone she uses that person as a character in the book. She also makes a book series with Paul Langan so there are new stories for the same continuous story.

My favorite book that I have read this year is Lost and found because I really got into it and it was really interesting to read. For example when Jamee got lost and I was wondering what is going to happen next. Also all the detail in the book, it was easy to understand. Then there were problems with Jamee’s father and I really wanted to know what happen like is he okay or did he die. I could read the book in one day’s. I wouldn’t be able to take my hands off it. My favorite author is Anne Schraff because she gets so descipted in her writing. For example when Jamee was missing she talked about the emotions her family had, what they were going threw and I could really can make connections with the book. I would want to read all of her books and I would finish them in a second. Just say the magic word and I am done.

My favorite book that I read this year and that I am still reading is Roll Of Thunder Hear My Cry because this book has a lot of action and it is a about racism. This is also my favorite book that I read this year because I can relate to Cassie and to the way she felt and reacted when she bumped into Lillian Jean and she didn’t want to say sorry because she did it on accident. I also would have been mad when Big Ma told me to say sorry and especially when Lillian Jeans dad knocked Cassie of the side walk. I can actually say that am like Cassie. My Favorite author would be Katherine Patterson because she has written many books and I have read a lot of her books this year. I say she is my favorite author because when she writes her books she writes about boys at a young age that suffers through out the story to accomplish something. I like it when i read a book and someone has to struggle just to accomplish something because to me it's like a movie that i wish will never end.

The book I have most desired was a Matter of Trust by Anne Schraff. The reason “Matter of Trust” was my favorite book out of ALL books we read this year was because, in that book so many problems were caused and so many solutions were decided… This book was a REAL roller coaster it had so many UPS and DOWNS. It was pretty crazy, and the character’s personalities were pretty insane. In this book, the author had made it seem as if it was really happening in real life. But there have been so many similarities, because since Darcy was in High school she was going through the high school basics too [Drama, drama, and more Drama] but in this book, there has been so many similarities throughout family, friends, school, and love. I believe that in Matter Of Trust it was most likely dedicated throughout everything that happened in that book. I preferred this book the most entertaining and most shocking book I read this year. But it caught my eye and it became my favorite =)

(1)
My favorite book is Flip Flop Girl because the author is very creative. She has gone threw a lot and she has never backed down and I am the same way cause I have lost someone very important to me and it was hard fro me but look at me I am strong like Vinnie in Flip Flop Girl. My favorite author is Katherine Paterson because she is writing about her life and she lets her hear t out like in every book she has every wrote she has wrote about her real life. So much she has gone threw she is still surviving.

(2)
Another type of book tat I like is Begging For Change because it is about a girl that has a father that he is a junkie and her mother just got into a fight with this girl and the girl hit her in the head with a pipe and the girl broke her mothers skull. My favorite author is Sharon Draper because she give the description like when her mother got hit in the head with the pipe she said the blood was coming out like a stream of water ect.

Hakim Iman said...

I also wanted to add that she "inspires me" very much from this 1 book that teaches you about how to deal with problems in life and really teaches you to care for your family, your mom, dad, brother & sister (etc.) because you only get 1 of each in life and that's the truth. Mildred is an icon for kids from 6-17 years of age. I'm sure that any person would die to write like her. Also in ROTHMC there is a part that mentions that a girl named Lillian Jean pushed the main character Cassie off the side walk and the Lillian Jean says to say sorry knowing that Cassie already did, then the grandmother said "Cassie, just say it" and big ma was trying to protect Cassie.

My favorite book this year has been Lost and Found from The Blueford Series. This is my favorite book because it was a book that made me feel like if I was in the book, in this book their where so many ups and downs, and so much actions, and drama. This book was just so interesting, and mostly because of all the mystery, and one part that showed me that was when there was this man fallowing one of the main characters in the book and then one day that man in a gray car fallowed her to her house she was very scared because every were she was their the man had to be so then she called the police to go to her house and check to see why was the man fallowing her so much, when the police came they asked the man to step out the car and to tell them what he wanted with her, well guess who it was it was her father that she hadn’t seen for 5 years.

My favorite author this year has been Katherine Patterson, why well because she like s to put a lot of imagination in her books, like the book that she wrote called The Bridged To Terabithia, that book was the best book that I have ever read of hers an din my live, by the books I read and the books that I hers of that I want to read those book are something that can be made for kids to read but also for an adult. Her books are interesting they are full of magic and imagination it makes any body get their heads stuck in them. Like in the book The Bridged To Terabithia, that book was all about what you want to believe and what you don’t, this book also made you feel like if you was in it, all the adventure and all the fun and drama that came up made this book even more interesting.

My favorite book that I’ve read this year is The Bridge to Terrabithia. I like this book for many reasons. One reason I like this book is because Katherine Patterson was a descriptive writer, instead of her using words like little she used words like tinny. Another reason why I choose this book as my favorite book that I’ve read this year is because the character Leslie is just like me in many ways. One way she is just like me is because she was kind to her best friend Jessie. Leslie thought that she should never turn her friends down, like for example when she said we should build a bridge together and we will call it Bridge To Terrabithia. Another reason I said that Leslie is just like me is because I like to hang out with my friends.

Katherine Patterson has been my favorite author. I choose her to be my favorite author for many reasons. One reason why I chose Katherine Patterson as my favorite author is because she is a descriptive writer, instead of her using words like small she uses words like tinny. Another reason I choose her as my favorite author is because when you are reading the book she don’t just tell you what’s coming next she leaves you with a clue to find out what’s coming next. My last reason why I choose her is because when you are reading the book you don’t even know what’s going to happen and WOW it pops up!

My favorite that I had read so far was Someone To Love by Anne Schraff that’s a Bluford series and it’s about a 15-year-old named Cindy. And her mom was dating a man name Raffie and he always picks on Cindy. But Cindy always thinks that’s she’s ugly until her neighbor said she gorgeous. And then she started to date this boy that goes to the same school together and then a month after they dated that her mom gets married. But then one day they where by there self and he was looking at her weirdly like when her mother friends look to see any resemblance of Cindy and her mom. . But then he smacked her for no absolute reason. And then he frightened her and threatened her and said, “If anyone finds out what just happened you will be dead.” And as a ending I myself didn’t know it will happened like that. But this has been my favorite book of the year because the way she writes it its like your in it the descriptive words that she uses it's like watching the television in your head.

What had been my favorite book this year was Crystal by Walter Dean Myers. The reason why I like this book is because the girl Crystal is a model and when I was little I was a model like her but I was younger than Crystal. For an example Crystal is a sixteen year old when she was modeling and I was only seven when I was modeling so we both modeled at a young age. Another reason I like this book is because Crystal not acting herself until she was modeling now she is being rude to her friends and not doing her homework and class work so she don’t know if she want to stop modeling or should she continue. Who had been my favorite author was Barbara Parks. Barbara Parks was my favorite author because the books that she had wrote was hilarious. A book that I had read from hers was all of Junie B.Jones Series, and they all were amusing. What I mean by that is that is that the character Junie B.Jones is a very entertaining girl and it's humorous when she argue with people.
