The Third Twin

I’m on Chapter 2. In this Chapter Ava was talking about get into Stanford College. The first thing I ever wore was a Stanford onesie. My father’s had the Stanford’s Dad bumper sticker ready for his car since I was nine. Stanford’s the only place that matters. It doesn’t help that I applied for early action that it matters.

Gaby Lost and Found

I’m on Chapter 1. Gaby was walking home and she saw a cat stuck in a tree. She pulled off her sweater and tossed it onto her porch. Gaby secured her feet and hands and climbed higher, until the cat was within arm’s reach. Gaby took a deep breath and reached out for the cat again.”It’s okay. little kitty,”she said sweetly. This time the cat latched on to her, digging its claws into her arm and shoulder. She held on to the cat and, with one free hand, made her way down the tree branch by branch. Then the cat climbed down into her arm’s.

one piece

This is one of my favorite anime’s/manga’s of all time only coming second for Naruto. The plot is really great and it has amazing characters. When I read One Piece its like I’m in their world witnessing all of the amazing and mind boggling things that they do! I just really enjoyed this book! And I hope that others will come to enjoy it also.

In the later part of this story is that the Mcnasty sits, come in and break their brothers out and get revenge on Melvyn Breederman and Candice Brinkwater .

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I have enjoyed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows so far, and I think I will continue to enjoy it. This book has a great storyline and is very descriptive. This makes it easy for me to make inferences. This book has some graphic things including someone who has their throat slit and someone else gets their ear removed. This book also some mild language. This book is usually for people mid way through 3rd grade and higher.

I love the book Catching Fire! It was a thrilling book that I would never put down. I was addicted to it and would recommend it to anyone. It has a twist ending which makes it even better.
