    1. I really like the way the author had wrote this book. This really reminded me about my 5th grade in Canada (when really is about 6th grade). I think the point of view was hard for the author to find because he had said he searched for lots information and went in his past to find all of this stuff. It's pretty amazing how all the events in the book had all something to do with his life. I wished I've read the one with the non-edited "stuff" in the book. I really loved the plot of this book, and [...]

    2. Homework book #1. I read this because it is geared toward the same aged reader as my novel, and I need to read more of this type of novel as I work on my next book. This had a predicatble tie-in with the JFK assassination, but it was still well-done. The book has a nice first-person voice, and many nice details from that era.

    3. I think this was actually pretty good! It is very interesting- also, it is realistic in so many ways. It makes me like I was actually sitting there watching all this happen to Marc.
