Towers Falling -Jewell Parker Rhodes

   Towers Falling by Jewell Parker Rhodes(realistic fiction)was a book I decided to read for a Battle of The Books competition.  This book is about Dèja and her journey as she enters a new school and city. Along her way she meets her friends Ben and Sabeen, together they learn about what happened to the New York skyline on September 11th, 2001. Jewell Parker takes a unique and very approachable look at a very sad tragedy that happened 16 years ago. Towers Falling will open your eyes to the harsh reality of what happened on 9/11 and how it affected the people around them!
 I really liked this book personally because the author depicted a very special protagonist! I think the author did a very good job at developing the characters as the story moves along, and we can see this through writing pieces Dèja writes. I would rate it a 4.5 out of 5 and I would highly recommend you to read it!

The Road - Cormac McCarthy

Image result for the road
     The Road is a book about a post-apocalyptic society that has been ravaged and wrecked to the point of desperation. The Road focuses on the journey of a boy and his father. Together they continue their journey down to the South in hopes of a better life. Even though all the horrible sights they see and the horrible things they have to do, the man and boy do not venture from the road.
      In 2007, this book won the Pulitzer award for Fiction. It is an amazing work of writing that leaves the reader questioning their sanity. There were times, still are, that I hated this book. At one point, I read 15 pages and had to put the book down because of powerful it was. I recommend this book to anyone looking for something a bit deeper than magic, love, and is ready for a more mature read.
