Teen SRC 2018- The Report Card by Andrew Clements

The Report Card by Andrew Clements

The Report Card is in the perspective of a girl named Nora. Nora is the genius in grade five but she doesn’t admit it. Now when we’re talking genius we’re talking she was a one year old solving puzzles and a toddler reading. Nora thinks when being the genius that there will be to much pressure with good grades and always being right, so she hides it. Nora does bad on purpose, she wants to show her parents and teachers that she is just an “average” student.

In kindergarten  Nora observes the other kids in her class to try to be more like them. Each day she would secretly be someone else in the class by copying what they do. Once she went through each person she seemed to like the day she got to be a kid named Stephen. They soon become very good friends because they would do the same things, but never would they show they are because they thought it would be weird if a girl and a boy were friends. When the CMT (Connecticut Mastery Test) scores come out Stephen’s scores come out not so good. Nora is determined to prove to Stephen that it’s not that important to get a bad score. Nora tries to get bad grades on purpose so that Stephen doesn’t feel so bad.Read More

Teen SRC 2018 – Cheesie mack is running like crazy! By steve cotler and douglas holgate

Cheesie mack is running like crazy ! By Steve Cotler

This book is about a boy named mack. In this book he has just started middle school . At the start of this book he gets told the class rules for instance put the date and name on the top of your work or no fooling around in class. So a few weeks later they had election for class president and Mack’s friends told him he should do it so he did. Mack’s friends put on stilts and walked around school saying vote for Mack.


On the election day it was a tie and at the end of the book it didn’t really say what happened clearly but it does fool and joke with you for 3 chapters and then they say that Mack’s friend canceled his vote and that helped the election and that’s it.
