The novel Sandwiched by Jennifer Archer was amazing. It took me a minute to relize how the book was being writen, but I ended up not being able to put the book down. It was interesting reading a book that had three different point of views in it. It made the book very interseting and enjoyble to read by all ages. It has a great ending and I did not want it to end. This was a great book about understanding changes and getting older.

I really enjoyed reading Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier. It really gave me a new outlook on life and how to find myself. Born Coonfused was great because i could relate to the characters. It explained daily troubles that teenagers face when we are trying to figure out who we are. It was definitely something that I did not want to stop reading. I would recomend this to anyone who is in search for themselves. It helped me out a great deal.
