    A reviewer

    I like this book. It is a clue and mystery.The characters are incredible, amazing, talent and they help each other and be there for each other with their problem as a real family. This book is strange,a little scary, emotional. there was a kind lot emotion in the book which it great and it is little a sad beacause there no adult around them to help from the beingnning. I glad there is a grown up at the end so I enjoyed reading this book and find peace too.

    Fire Got Me

    Their was a town that Fire-us came to and killed them all but three adults and two children. The three adults found the children and took care of them. The fire-us made them forget their names and who they were. Hunter was one of the adults and he was the person to find all the food. Sometimes he couldn¿t find much food and mommy yield at him and so did teacher. One time Hunter was looking for food and saw two little animals in the bushes. He was scared and ran home as fast as he could. He told Teacher and Mommy that he thought he saw two little people and they told him to find them and bring them home. Hunter was made because he could barley feed the family right now and to feed some more mouths would be impossible. Teacher took one of the children named Baby out on a walk and she herd something in the bushes. Baby was afraid it was an alligator and he grabbed onto Teacher. Teacher walked closer and found two children ran away. She told Mommy and Mommy told her to find them but she didn¿t want to. Teacher and Hunter went out to find the children and Hunter told teacher he wanted to go back onto the road. Teacher was scared and didn¿t want to. The things I like about the Kindling was that they had some adventures finding the two wild children and that when they wanted to find them they couldn¿t and when they were just walking around they found them. Some of the things that I did not like about this book are that it does not have them finding the children. Also I think they should have Hunter going out finding food and most of the time not getting any.

    The Year to die For!

    Something happened, all of the parents died. At least that¿s what they thought. Leaving children to fend for themselves. Eventually almost all of the children died of sickness or starvation. There is still one group of children in a small town of Florida. All of the children were alone and eventually came together to form a family. None of the children remember their old home, their old parents, or even their old names. It has been five years since everything happened. For the first time in five years they here someone knock at the door. The person who is there changes the children¿s life forever. My dislikes about this book are how slow the book is in the beginning even though it picks up after the beginning also I didn¿t think the narrator did a great job about the details in the story. The things I like about the book are, that u cant put the book down after you pick it up, and after u read the first book you will want to read the whole series. I would recommend this book to someone who likes adventure, and action. This book, The kindling, is the first book in the series. There are a total of three books in this trilogy. After you read the first book in the series you will want to, and have to read the second and third book to find out what happens to the seven children, mommy, teddy, action, hunter, baby, dolly, and teacher.

    It was pretty good!

    This was such a good book! I thought it was going 2 be stupid and i grabbed it off the shelf just because the library was closing. It is a crazy book. Literally. Ok. There are 7 kids living in a house together run by Mommy, a maybe 14 year old girl i dont remember exaclty. All of the kids had forgotten their real names. Then on day, This tall kid named Anchorman, shows up at their door dragging a manekin on a tether and talking through a picture frame like a newsreporter.(just in case u havent figured out already, he's crazy). He asks for food and stuff. He plans 2 go 2 Washington to find 'President' and he trys to take Action Figure and a couple of other young children with him. Mommy(who hadn't been outside for 5 years) Goes beserk and runs outside after him crying and junk. they all go to Washington. I won't tell u the rest becuz im really bad at stuff like that. Its very funny. Just read it.
