    My Life as a Body

    My Life as a Body By: Norma Klein This book was about a girl named Augie and she hasn¿t been liking her last year at the private school that she is attending. During the middle of the school year a boy named Sam who use to do sports and be very smart was in a car crash and that made him have to be in a wheel chair for the rest of his life. Augie¿s counselor asked her is she could tutor him since he was and and that his parents wanted a fellow classmate of him to get help with his school work. They become closer in the tutoring and are about to go to college. They find out how much they need each other and how their bonding effecting their relationship. To see what happens to them read the book. This book was good because it shows how these two different people become such great friends with Sam¿s disabilities and Aguie¿s discomfort for this school year. I didn¿t feel like I was in the book because this hasn¿t happened to me before but, it felt like the author was telling us like it was real and how everyone felt. The main conflict didn¿t interest me at first then again after reading a few pages it seemed very interesting. The whole fact that she¿s tutoring a guys she doesn¿t even know and then becoming good friends with him. The characters seemed realistic because it was like what average people do, doing something nice for another person. The ending was satisfying it summed up most of the story but, there were some parts that were boring to read. The voice of the author made it seem like she was the girl who helped this boy and that it was all based on her own life and how she dealed with all of it. The vocabulary was difficult. There were some big words that I didn¿t understand. Then when I read the book the author was trying to make it sound sophisticated so I guess that¿s why there were some big words here and there. I think Sam and Augie were the most realistic characters because yes, there are people who don¿t like the school year and also that there are disabled people that need help. The author¿s dialogue made it seem like this specific this happened to her. The tone seemed like she was the on telling us the story and that this could happen to anyone. The whole overall writing was good except for some of the bing words that I didn¿t get and the boring parts. It was a long book but, in the end it was worth reading. If I rated this book I would rate it a 8 our of 10 because there were some parts that just were boring and the words where I had to look them up to see what they mean and that wasted some reading time.. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a big vocabulary and people who like reading how we help special people. Overall, I thought that it was a good book. There were some parts that were boring but, then again it was good. I think that the author did her best on making it sound sophisticated but, I think she put to many big words.
