Nineteen Minutes
Jodie Picoult
pg. 90

I have really enjoyed this book so far and I would recommend it to many people. I like to read about teenagers and what they experience during life, relating it to my own life. A teenage girl Josie attends Sterling High School and is just an average everyday kind of girl. I can relate to her which makes the book more enjoyable to read. A teenage boy in her grade brings a gun to school and kills many people. Josie's boyfriend died and she was devasted, as I would be as well. I'm really into this book and the author makes it seem so life-like and real, which is what I like. The setting is very similar to what most teenage kids go through on a day-to-day basis. Most of it takes place at school, home, or sometimes her mom's work. This is probably one of my favorite books I have read so far, I just wish I could find more time to sit down and enjoy it!

  1. I loved this book as well! It just really makes you want to keep reading. Every page I read I definitely did not expect at all. Also I agree it seemed like a very true depiction of a real teenagers' life.
