Away With Words
Amazing book! I enjoyed the representation of different people's types of communication, liked how it showed people's different perspectives and why they would do things. The idea of spoken words being real is really smart.

The Boy Lost in the Maze
I found this book very enjoyable. There is some mystery in the story when Theo gets rejected by his Dad and Thesus' step mom wants to kill him so he would not be the heir to the king's throne. I thoroughly enjoyed this and if you are a poem reader this is a must for you! I rate this book 4.5 stars out of 5 :)

The Door of No Return
I found the book to be an immersive and educational exploration of the atrocities committed during the abhorrent institution of slavery.

The Door of No Return
I like how the book starts with the race between the two Kofi’s but near the end they are trying to escape their captors and avoid becoming slaves.

The Song Walker
I think it was cool how they saw mirages along the journey like the pool of water but in the end everyone they met were spirits and mirages.

Crossing the Line
This book was exceptionally well-written and imparted valuable life lessons that are essential for both teenagers and adults. It presented these lessons in an engaging, entertaining, and enjoyable manner.

It's not my type of book, and i couldn't really fully make sense of it, but i know a lot of people most likely like this.

Crossing the Line
This was a very good book that taught lots of valuable lessons on the dangers of gangs and drugs that many teenagers and adults need to learn but it presents the lessons in a fun enjoyable and engaging way

Crossing the Line
This book presents a compelling and educational narrative that imparts valuable life lessons in a format accessible to both children and adults. I highly recommend this book to individuals of all age groups, as I personally found it to be an enjoyable and enriching read.

Crossing the Line
I thought the book was very good and highlighted a great lesson about the dangers of drugs and selling them too, and about the dangers of gangs. I thought it emphasised very well the amount of people that use drugs as is shown by the use of the scenario of Jordan ikes' mother getting cocaine from Erik. Therefore, this is a largescale problem in society. The dangers of gangs were shown by how Mike got stabbed and how the package Erik had to look after for K1 was a gun. Overall, I think it was a good book that taught some important lessons.
