Why I chose this book: Because it like a mystery. It’s very interesting also.

With Friends Like These by ReShonda T. Billingsley

Genre: Romance
Rating: ☆☆☆☆, I love this!
Total number of pages: read the whole book

Review by: Janelle
My current book type: Mystery

This book is about this youth group that meets daily and talk about community projects and stuff in their lives. 4 girls in the group are best friends and knew each other for a long time. A new girl joins the group and the new girl feels left out because the 4 girls are so connected that she feels like she can’t be one of them.

I like this book because it talks about stuff that happens in real life today. This book is romantic so if you don’t like romantic books, then this book is not good for you. There are boyfriend and girlfriend break-ups, friendship issues, and love for having someone you can count on. All in all, I suggest this book for readers who want to see how these 4 girls split up and come back together as friends.

In real life by Joey Graceffa

Genre: Non-fiction
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆, an all-time favorite
Total number of pages: 255

Review by: Jesus
My current book type: Non-fiction

This book is a elaboration of the life of Joey Graceffa. We get to be informed about the good and the bad about his life like for example a good thing is his dog Bailey and the bad can be his alcoholic mom.

I really like this book because of its author he is a you-tuber who I have been watching for a couple of years. I also really like the language some of the words he created that only his subscribers. I dislike how he includes pictures then he continues his story because i get confused. I like the pictures because it really does give me imagery.
