Students, please complete the following in the comments section. Replace the red with information about your SSR book.

I am reading Soldier's Heart written by Gary Paulsen . I have 65 pages before I finish my book. It will take me 4 days to finish.

The best thing about this book is ...

The best thing about this book is how it brought me into it. I feel like I am Charley. When he faces the enemy in battle for the first time, I felt myself tighten up with the anticipation of what was ahead. When the battle is over, and Charley must face his shame, I felt defeated and sad. Paulsen took me through all of the feelings, just as Charley experiences them. In every step of Charley's journey, I could picture myself, in his place, living his life.

I am reading Heidi written by Johanna Spyri. I have 143 pages before I finish my book. It will take me about 4 or 5 days to finish.

The best thing about this book is I can hear Heidi's sweet little voice. Heidi is the main character. It really seemed in the middle of the book this little girl came her name was Clara and it seemed she was a main character too. Well actually she didn't come Detie took Heidi from her grandfather because Clara was paralyzed and was lonely so Detie took Heidi to Claras house to stay so that Clara wouldn't be lonely because she spends most of her time in a wheel chair. I hope Clara is able to walk at the end of the book.

I hope you enjoyed the story.

I am reading the book Old Yeller written by Fred Gipson. I have 71 pages before I finish my book. It will take me 5 days to finish.

The best thing about this book is ...
That it is very exciting and you do not know what is going to happen next. In other book you might get at least two big exciting things but in the book Old Yeller you get a exciting ting every chapter. Some of the chapters are long and some are short. In every chapter you get lost and than you see you have read more than a hour. Like i never heard of hydrophobia it is an disaese that animals get and if they get it and they bite someone the person dies. The book is very good and I hope you read it.

I am reading The Hardy Boys written by Franklin W. Dixon. I have 154 pages before I finish my book. It will take me about 2 days to finish. 

My favorite part of the book is when Frank and Joe get get a dose of drugs and then wake up and find out they got kidnapped. They got kidnapped because they were trying to save a wrestler from getting killed after his match with a really competitive wrestler. I really enjoy mystery books because they always have something going on. I hope you try some of the Hardy Boy series.

I am reading Harris and Me written by Gary Paulsen. I have 116 pages to read. It will take me maybe a week to finish.



The best part about this book so far is were Harris and me play war with the pigs. In Harris's eyes the pigs are commie japs. Gary Paulsen does a good job of making you feel that you are right in the middle of everything. This book so far has made me laugh like 20 times.

I am reading Define Normal   written by  Julie Anne Peters   I am finished with my book.

I am reading Among The Impostors written by Margaret Peterson Haddix . I have 61 pages before I finish my book. It will take me 3 days to finish.

The best thing about this book is that it doesn't take you on boring adventures with the main character in the book. Plus it takes you on an adventure like when your day dreaming but you are not day dreaming at all. It really is good towards the end but then it gets really interesting because more things happen. Where it takes place is cool and sounds kinda neat and private. The thing I hope the most is that Lee can face his fears with Jason at school.
