Reviewed by Janessa, Age 15 This book was just okay and I really wish it had been so much better because I really like to read and write and this book just wasn't what I thought it would be. A lot of the books mentioned in this book (pages one hundred fifty five though one hundred sixty two) I have never read and the author didn't include any modern books, which is what I was looking for since those are the books kids my age read for fun, even in school.
