Izzy willy nilly
Izzy, Willy-Nilly”

  • The genre of this book is realistic fiction. The setting was in the past; at a party, school, the hospital, and Izzy’s house. The characters were: mom, dad, Francie, Lisa, Suzy, Lauren, Jack, Joel, Rosamunde, and Marco. Plot: Izzy goes on a date with a senior, Marco. The date is at a party and while there Marco gets drunk. When driving home, Marco crashes into a tree. Izzy later wakes up in the hospital being told her left leg is broken and her right leg needs amputated. Izzy spends about a month in a half in the hospital doing physical therapy and talking the a psychiatrist. When her friends Lauren, Suzy, and Lisa come to visit her they act strange and the friends grow apart. But Rosamunde Webber becomes her new best friend and they spend a lot of time together. Rosamunde helps Izzy not feel so self conscious and get back to school and start to feel better about herself. Critique: I didn’t really enjoy this book because I felt that it got into too much detail and it was kind of a sad book. It was too dramatic.

It s not easy being bad
“It’s Not Easy Being Bad”

The book ‘It’s Not Easy Being Bad’ is a genre of Realistic Fiction. The author of this book is Cynthia Voigt. There are only few main characters such as Mikey and Margalo. The setting of this book is a Middle School. Margalo and Mikey wish to be popular but then have the reputation of being “bad girls” when they fight back when the “populars”(a.k.a. Frankie) pick on them. Right after they have this reputation of being “bad”, they have a contest to see who’s most popular by having parties and etc. At the end of my book, Margalo and Mikey find that there was no point of fighting back, having contests to see who’s popular and who’s not and all they needed was each other to get through Middle School.

My critique was that I did not really enjoy this book, it did not hold my attention.
