Lauren tarshis is a great author of the I survived series. Well lets just say she isent perfect and no one is. But i think her stories are just so lovly to read and the main characters are brave strong and warm hearted. Like how Ness trys to save him mother in the very begging. Well there is time when you have to deal with the painful things, not always the good things. But things change and then things get a little better than before. Ness is really brave. And i fell bad for him because in the very begging his mother dies. Sometimes nightmares come true. And unexpectful thing happens sometimes. Life isent much so easie sometimes. I know that without his mother, it is hard for him. Know that his heart is broken. Sometimes in the series i survived, it a good timing when you think to you self, boy, I am so lucky to have a great mom and dad and great food and i am alsoo lucky that am in school and mom and dad cares for you.

Great story line ! I chose the book I survived the great Chicago fire because the picture and the titled seem like a good strong book with interesting stories in it ! this I survived book was just as great as it seemed, it wasn't to hard nor long. In I survived it talks about a boy named Oscar. Oscar like us has sad tragedies as he sadly lost his father. shortly after his dad dies his mom falls in love and marries a artist so they have to give up his dad's farm and move to Chicago. Soon after they go to Chicago there is a huge fire where Oscar is in big danger. I think this is a good book for many people interested about how it is to be in a t fire, loves a good story line and for kids that are looking for a good not hard nor long kind of book!
