I like a lot of books but I'll focus on the novels we have read in 5th grade the last couple of years. I liked Esperanza Rising because the story is so similar to the story of Dosie's grandmother. When I read the novel of Esperanza Rising I feel like its telling the story of her life. I like Percy Jackson because it has plenty of action, suspense and twists. I like how the author found a way to make Greek mythology relevant to today's youth. I like Holes because it is a fun book that has different stories within the main story. However, I really enjoyed Wonder because it has to do with social injustices many students face in school or at home. I thought it was well written to show the characters different perspectives. I liked learning how another character saw the situation totally different than how the other character saw it.

My holiday break was interesting. I was sick most of the time. When I say sick, I mean sick. I had a fever, cough, running nose and headaches. It really made me appreciate when I am healthy. I stayed home most of the time. I only went out a few times to celebrate Christmas eve and Christmas day with family. And I did go bowling towards the ending of the break when I was feeling better. I also went to the theater to see Star Wars. I played indoor basketball in a church gym. And went out to a really nice Italian Restaurant. Overall, it was fine. Oh yeah, I did get some cool presents like a nice shirt, sweaters, and a gift card. But the best part was that I spend some time with Dosie and Charlie. Although Charlie was a bad boy!
