Hey folks, I am back. After a little break due to recovery and other obligations I am finally back to writing again. I went through many, many books in the meantime – so be prepared there are a few good ones coming along.
What is the story about in Allan Woodrow’s “Unschooled”?
Gorge and Lilly are BFFs. They know each other since they were babies. Of course they really wanted to be in the same team at the annual 5th grade “Spirit Week” at school. But principal Klein had other plans and so they found themselves competing in different groups. And to make matters even worse: They were the opposite team leaders! The winning team was to get a mysterious prize nobody knows about. Of course everyone wanted to win. People on opposite teams started sabotaging each other and from there everything turns into a huge mess!
Can George and Lilly save the day and go back to being friends again? Read the book to find out!
What is the moral of the story?
Never give up friendship for winning.
Who is my personal favorite in the story?
George, because he is calm doesn’t rush and is always accurate. Lily is the total opposite of him but also very kind.
How did I like the book?
I loved the book. It was very catchy but it would have been even better with a little less drama. Give a round of applause to the author please!
Who is that book for?
For kids nine years and older
I hope you all had a great Christmas break. Happy new year! Welcome 2021!
2020 was not the greatest year, but this quote I wanted to share, because it is a very good explanation of last year: “There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.” I personally found 2020 pretty good except Corona/Covid-19 of course. The virus also had good things to it – like everyone learned to have more responsibility than normal and we learned a lot about technology, whether at distance schooling or work. It was also very nice to have more time with my family and of course I had loads of time to read.
My motto for 2021 is: #1 Stay positive. #2 Be respectful to everyone.
Because of the virus we didn’t go away during the break and we only went out to play tennis or to go for walks or biking – so I spent pretty much time inside reading. This book my parents got me as a present on Christmas eve. After reading the Funjungle and Spy School novels and also part of the Moon Base Alpha series, I have to say this book is the best book Stuart Gibbs ever created! I loved it a lot and I got into trouble a couple of times because it was so hard to stop reading to have family dinner or lunch or breakfast or what so ever. I pretty much read it in one go because it was soooo good.
