Accept, don't question
As an 11th grader currently in AP English 'yes, we were assigned this book'... I was extremely disappointed. This book is designated for 'teens,' but it seemed as if the author wrote it for 3rd graders. I understand that the story is supposed to be somewhat elementary and simple.. but the chapters that 'connected' the story to a 'teenager's life' were completely ridiculous and condescending. It was like watching a movie with cheesy acting and bad writing. Furthermore, the general message of the story is completely off. When the cheese was moved, the people were just supposed to follow it. What about creating their own cheese? 'i.e. becoming a LEADER rather than a follower?' Think about that one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book simply states, over and over again, i might add, that Change is good. Period. Accepting change will do nothing but make your life better! No matter what the change is, it will improve your life. It could be a change in class schedule, your family is forced to move because your dad got fired from his job,(which you should have seen coming, anyway. Accept it!). This book is not relavent to a teenagers life at all.(and since I am one, i can say from expierence.) Upon saying that, the actual message is universal, and i belive that Joe Diffie said it in a song: Everything changes, Everything changes. However, I do not think that this book will teach you HOW to accept change and use it to your advantage, but it does TELL you to do that. ALways question, never just accept. That is what threw me off.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
