Naruto, Vol. 1: The Tests of the Ninja

By Masashi Kishimoto

Naruto is a great book you should read. It is about a young boy named Naruto Uzumaki who has a 9 Tailed Beast (Bijuu) inside him (the bijuu's/beast's name is Kurama). He is separated from the other kids because they think of him as the beast, not as the one who keeps it in their body. His goal is to be the greatest hokage (ninja president in their village). He fails the exam to become a ninja again, but later his sensei Iruka is about to get killed by another person, Mizuki. Naruto does a "jutsu" (basically magic powers) to clone himself 999 other times. He defeats Mizuki and Iruka gives him a ninja headband, which proves he is a ninja. The next day all the Genin (the lowest ninja rank other than the academy student) are separated into squads of 4 (one sensei and 3 genin). He is put with his crush Sakura, but his rival, Sasuke. Sasuke has no family just like Naruto, but he has one brother. His brother destroyed his entire clan (family) and Sasuke wants vengence. Sakura isn't very important, since she only cares about getting with Sasuke. Their ninja teacher, is Kakashi Hatake. It is a great book!

Sisters

Sisters

By Raina Telgemeier

I love this book out of all I think that this book is my 2nd favorite book. I love that there are flashbacks, I think it's really cool that it tells you the past that connects to the future. I also love that it shows that sisters never get along all the time. It also shows that even if sisters usually disagree they can always come to an understanding sooner or later. I think that this a great book and I love all her books. I love the art style. In conclusion I give this book a 5 stars.

Ghosts

Ghosts

By Raina Telgemeier

I absolutely love this book! I love the relationship Cat and Maya have. Shes very loving to her sister and she protects her like a great older sister she is! I like how when she began going to school she was able to make good friends and they were super nice and kind towards her. I like how in the end she meet with this old woman ghost and they got along nicely. In the end Cat thought that their Grandmother didn't come but instead their ghost of their grandmother made them lots of food for them. I would rate this book 5 stars!

Drama

Drama

By Raina Telgemeier

Have you ever devised the perfect plan to achieve your dreams but found that constant interference from others was holding you back? In Raina Telgemeier’s Drama, the protagonist, an outgoing, theater-loving middle schooler named Callie, is forced to deal with school drama both onstage and offstage. The setting for most of this story is Eucalyptus Middle School, where Callie works as the set designer for her school’s theater production of Moon over Mississippi. She has a lot of ambitious ideas as to how the cast and crew can create the perfect production, however, she encounters numerous difficulties. For one, the limits relating to budget, materials, and time are causing her some trouble, and to top it all off, her fellow stage crew and actors aren’t getting along very well, and Callie ends up caught in the very middle of it. She has to persevere through it all and try her hardest to make the production the best it can be. A memory moment Callie has in the story is a memory of the first theater production she ever saw and how much it inspired her. She recalled wanting to adopt the roles of characters in productions, but eventually she realized that it wasn’t her strong suit. That didn’t stop her from continuing to learn about the various aspects of theater, and she ended up joining the Eucalyptus Middle School Stage Crew during her 6th grade year. This was how she first got involved in theater and how she would become the set designer for Moon over Mississippi. Anyone who likes a good graphic novel, is interested in theater, or enjoys an amusing story involving some classic school drama might like this book.
