Review of “just as long as were together”, written by Judy Blume

Reviewed by: Charlotte
Review: I enjoyed the book “Just as Long as We’re Together” by Judy Blume. The main character in this story is Stephanie and her two friends Allison and Rachel. The main problem in this story is that Stephanie’s parents are going through a “trial” separation and this is very hard on her. Another problem she’s facing, is that her BFF since second grade, Rachel, is feeling left out from her and Allison (who just moved in). Steph and Rachel don’t talk for more than a month! They eventually start talking again but are not the same best friends as they used to be. Stephanie is still very sad about her parents “trial” separation especially when her mom says they probably won’t get back together.
In they end of the book Allison and Steph are very good friends. Steph finally agrees to live with the separation especially because her dad is moving back to New York!
I thought this book was good, but I didn’t love it. My favourite character in this book is Allison because I can relate to being the new person as she had to. I would recommend this book for kids in grade 5 and up.

Review of “Ghosthunters and the Incredibly Revolting Ghost”, written by Cornelia Funke

Reviewed by: Brandon
Review: It starts when Tom figures out he has a averagely spooky ghost (an ASG for short) in his cellar. The ghost tells him he was kicked out of his house because a huge ghost which was the Incredibly Revolting Ghost (an IRG) had taken over the house. Tom helps the ASG to kick out the other ghost, and finally the ASG could move back in.
The story mostly took place at Tom’s house. The ASG was my favourite character. The book made me laugh. I recommend this book to anyone who likes funny ghost stories.

Reviewed by: Brandon
Review: It all starts when Voldemort kills Harry’s parents and he is sent to live with horrible Mr. and Mrs. and Dudley Dursley. He lived in a small cupboard under the stairs and rarely got fed. But then mysterious letters start appearing in their house, so they keep moving to different places. Next when the were on the boat, a big person burst in and told Harry to go to Hogwarts. Harry goes to Hogwarts, becomes great at Quiditch and at the end they battle Voldemort in Professor Quirrel’s body.
My favourite character was Ron Weasley because I thought it was cool when he battled professor Gonagall’s giant chess set. The story took place mostly at Hogwarts. It didn’t make me laugh or cry, but made me feel excited.
