All of the Above is a realistic fiction novel written by Shelley Pearsall. The novel is a very good and gives you examples that you can do whatever you want if you put your mind to it. The novel is set in modern day Cleveland, Ohio at the end of Washington Boulevard. A team of students want to break a world record of who can build the largest tetrahedron in the state, but they have only a few weeks to do it and only four kids helping them. Trying to build a tetrahedron is hard so the team of students try to get more students to join. When that didn't work, they started making snacks for kids to come and eat, but they have to work on the project. After that doesn't work, the math teacher tells the students whoever helps can get extra credit on math. The author wrote the novel from the first person point of view and wrote how the kids would write as if she was a student her self. Also every chapter in the novel was from every characters different perspective of the situation. This novel would be good for children ages 10-15 only because it is based on normal kids their age trying to do something to make history. Therefore it could be inspiring to them.

Good story on perseverance. Based on the true story of a group of inner city Ohio middle school students who defy all odds to build a record breaking stage 7 tetrahedron. The book give a glimpse into the hardships faced by the students living in an inner city neighborhood and how some are able to overcome great odds to succeed.

Engaging story based on a real middle school math class that built a giant tetrahedron, challenging the world record. Told in alternating chapters by the characters, the story builds nicely as we get to know each of the students who work on the project.

I had to read this for school but I felt like I would choose to read it after school or outside of school. Now whenever I read a book in school I always say, "it is good but not as good as All Of The Above!"
