Fight Fight!

I just fought with my bro. He can be so annoying sometimes. ūüė¶

Now that I think about it, what where we even fighting about in the first place?

Hmm.

It’s sorta pathetic how siblings (yes, me included) just have this instinct to get at each other’s throats for almost no reason at all. Like for instance, crossing the invisible line in the car, scattering (accidentally!) homework on the ground, and making a snobby comment out of annoyance are all common starters (in this family) for fights.

So what can we do to stop family quarrels in the future?

I’m no psychologist, and¬†I’m not gonna lie: Heck, I don’t know? Banish little bros from Family Land? Hey… that’s not a bad idea! ūüėČ

No, seriously.¬†I’m just gonna buy some earbuds, turn up my I-pod, and hope for the best tomorrow!

P.S. Book of the Day (I read it yesterday, but whatev): Gabe and Izzy

True story! With dogs! And an awesome message!

The Sisters Club

I’m at my library right now and ironically, the book I’m reviewing is NOT from the library but from my own shelves!

Well, this is gonna be quick because I have to study for some quizzes and stuff.

The Sisters Club is actually probably for 3-5 graders, so I wouldn’t think anyone my age would like it. Still a good book, though!

Basically, there are three sisters with boys names: Alex, Stevie, and Joey.

Joey is obsessed with pioneers and homework. She is the youngest Reel sister and is annoying.

Stevie is the middle sister and feels like she is the “glue.” “Glue” as in holding the family together.

Alex, the oldest, is sort of conceited with looks and really loves acting. Currently, she is starring in Beauty and the Beast with her crush, Scott Howel aka Paper Towel Man.

Alex is SUPER annoyed at her sisters because, well, for 2 main reasons:

a) Stevie stole and totally ruined her fav sweater. I would be angry if that happened to me, but I have a brother and he’s not wearing my clothes any time soon. Not to say that he isn’t SUPER annoying at times…

b) They totally embarrassed her at dinner in front of Towel Guy.

She erupts at any time. (like screaming, yelling,¬†arguing…)

But when Alex breaks her leg during Beauty, Stevie still takes her place.

I guess the author¬†was trying to say that sisters will always help each other no matter what, but let’s be honest: would you really do that for your sister if they were being¬†mean to you and you had stage fright like Stevie? I know I wouldn’t but I am, like, not super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†super super super super super super super super super super super super super¬†nice, so can’t say anything. Would you do that? Tell me in the comments!

Anyway, I would give this book 4 stars.

Yes, I know this isn’t short like I said, but I sorta lost track of time…

I Am Malala

I Am Malala is about the true story of a Pakistan girl named Malala Yousafzai who was shot in the head by the Taliban and how she stood up for her right to be educated.

I know what you’re thinking.¬† “Oh, its a biography. Boring. I’m¬†going¬†to go read Divergent.”¬†But it isn’t a boring story. Its sort of like reading a realistic fiction book, except all the events are true.

I found it exciting to look¬†into Malala’s life and what she felt and how she took a stand for her education.

I also like that the prologue, which jumps to when Malala was about to be shot, ends there, and moves on to chapter one, which is years be the prologue happened. That gives suspense, and introduces Malala as a regular girl.

And teachers: I think this would be a good story for a 6th Grade class reading book because:

a) Its actually interesting!

(I remember that when I was younger, I had to read this TOTALLY boring book about this boy who was always getting into trouble. It was probably about 2 reading levels below what we were supposed to be reading at.)

And at the end, my class had to answer about a million open-ended responses. Yay.

b) It will teach your students about what’s going on in the world and who Malala is.

(They’ve probably heard her name a lot but don’t know who she is. In fact, that’s what happened to me. When my teacher had us watch a speech of Malala’s for LA, I was embarrassed to admit I had absolutely no idea who she was.)

I would give this book five out of five stars.
