The Ash Princess Book Review
By Brittany Hagee
The book in discussion is the book Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian. The book is about a young girl whose entire life has slowly fallen apart in front of her. Theodosia is the girl who is known as Thora or the Ash Princess. Her community used to be a peaceful one that she was supposed to be herring. The Kaiser took the throne and kept Thora as a trophy. The Kaiser’s right hand man’s daughter became friends with Thora and they grew closer as they grew up. Thora thought there was no hope left as the rebels slowly gave up and she kept paying for their troubles. A guardian from her old community was brought before her to be slaughtered and she knew he was her only hope. As time passed Thora met other Astreans and began to form a plan. The Kaiser’s son, the Prinz, fell in love with Thora and devoted himself to her. Thora’s plan was going well until she got caught in a battle of love for the young Prinz’s hand in marriage. She continued forward manipulating the Prinz and playing along with the Kaiser’s game. She’s won the battle but the war lays ahead. She’s gathered rebels but is it as strong as an army? Only the future can say and the future lays written within the pages. This book is not for the faint hearted and is very challenging. It’s a page turner that leaves up on edge after every page.
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
By: Marcie Phlipot and McKenna Yearsley
The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw was a good book in our opinion. We liked the book because it wasn’t boring to read! It wasn’t the best, but it was still pretty good. Marcie liked how relatable Greg is. McKenna liked how dysfunctional the whole family is. The book is funny and relatable. We liked how Greg was investigating who took his lunch snacks, who took them? You will have to read the book to find out! Overall we enjoyed reading this book and hope you do!
