informative inspiring fast-paced

If you are a teacher, this is a must read! I am a first year teacher, and this book has helped me so much when decided how to implement reading in my classroom. Miller gives tips on reading corners, novel studies, book recommendations, and overall helping you get your students to read/love reading.

I read this in a college class that is strictly YA books. Although this is something I would have never picked up on my own and it’s for an age group younger than me, I actually enjoyed it a lot! This book is great for teaching representation to middle school students. It not only has religious matters that are brought up, but other issues like eating disorders. What I love best about it is that the languages is great for middle schoolers. This is definitely a book that I am going to put in my classroom library:)

I really wish I didn’t watch the show before I read the book because the book was so good. It’s very similar to the show, so sadly I wasn’t as excited as I was reading. I am hoping that the second book is just as great!

This was yet again another book that I was assigned in college for my young adult class. Although it’s not really my cup of tea and it’s something I would have never picked up, I think it’s great for middle school or even high school students who are struggling when coming out as gay.

I really loved this book! There were certain parts that were really relatable and it’s a great book for high school aged students. I remember I was in high school when this book came out and I didn’t read it then, but I think I watched the movie. Luckily, I didn’t remember the movie so after I read it, I watched the movie again and I love the movie as well. It’s a super good coming of age story.

I don’t remember much about this book (read it in middle school and now I am in college), but I remember I loved it in middle school. I was really invested in it and even watched the movie and was picking out what happened in the book vs the movie. It’s a super cute story line and reminds me of the fault in our stars or five feet apart. If you loved those books definitely give this a go.
