Raina is just entering middle school and changes are starting to happen. Friendships, relationships, mood swings etc. every day is different for Raina, and nothing is certain. How with Raina deal with everyday challenges that are thrown her way? This book was definitely an eye opener. Seeing Raina go through 6th through 10th grade, was an experience. The feeling this book gave me was very exciting. I was anticipating what was coming next and loved seeing her growth throughout.

Wink is a weird and not so enjoyable fiction novel by Rob Harrel. This book is about a kid named Ross, one day in the middle of summer he finds a big lump on his right eye. Ross gets diagnosed with a rare eye cancer, at school, he is known as the cancer kid. Ross has to deal with a lot of stuff like his eye goo, winking, and bullies. I love the way the author adds funny comics and pictures to describe the story, but the way the author presented the book wasn’t enjoyable to me.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer is a humorous and adventurous fantasy novel by Rick Riordan. This book is about a homeless 16-year-old boy named Magnus Chase. He travels the nine worlds as an einherjar. He and his friends find a way to keep the Norse God’s enemy tied up on a magical island. I love the way Rick Riordan humorizes even the most tragic events. I recommend this book to anyone wanting something good to read or anyone wanting a good laugh.

Finding Nemo is one of my favorite childhood movies because it tells an amazing adventure across the ocean. The movie starts with Marlin trying to protect his son Nemo, a clown fish, who has one fin of less than average size; Nemo ends up being captured and lands in a fishbowl with other apprehended and imprisoned fish accompanying him. Nemo’s dad, Marlin, travels across the immeasurable ocean along with a new friend he made named Dory who suffers from short-term memory loss.

Iron Man, one of the first Marvel Avengers movies, is an amazing, funny, truth-telling movie where Tony Stark, Iron Man, is kidnapped and is injured. He escapes by building a suit and then learns a semi-valuable lesson from his experience. Throughout the movie Tony Stark learns new things and improves himself. My favorite part about this movie is his suit. His suit was not made out of iron but yet he is Iron Man. I recommend this movie to many people who love watching superheroes fail while trying to fly.

Ant-Man was marvelous. It has action, comedy, soul-searching, and adorable features. From many comics Hank Pym is Ant-Man but in this new Marvel Movie Scott Lang has been chosen by Hank to be Ant-Man. At the beginning of the movie Scott Lang came out of prison for a 5-year sentence for cat burgling. He steals the Ant-Man suit because he wanted money to see his daughter again. This movie is funny and has amazing battle scenes with Yellow-Jacket, the villain.

This book is by far better than Ungifted, in my opinion. I liked how Donovan was one of the main characters in this book but I really liked how they switched the role and made Noah the second main character. In my mind I thought if Gordon Korman was going to make a second book Donovan would be the main character but it was surprising how Noah got to be a main character in this book more than he was in Ungifted.
