Book Review

   I once read Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Palacio has made other books like such as Auggie and Me. It’s about a kid named August Pullman and he is facing many issues with his face, so he has been wearing an astronaut helmet almost everywhere. He was homeschooled until he got to 5th grade and he went to Beecher Prep Elementary School. While there he is avoided by basically everyone, in the halls no one wants to touch him or get anywhere close to him it’s like he has a force field around him at all times. But as the school year goes along he gets friends, people still don’t really want to touch him but aren’t like they were in the beginning of the year. Finally, at the end of the year he gets along with a lot more people… to figure out the rest you need to read the book. 

I really liked this book because it can show that of you have something wrong with you, it can be overcome if you get good friends and preserve through the hatred you might get.

If you want to see a review in the book check out this YouTube video.


My New Dog

During the summer in Austin, Texas my family and I went to the pet shelter Austin Pets Alive about 2 to 3 times and on the 3rd time we found a dog that all 3 of us really like so we decided to meet it and it turned out well. So then the next step is to bring our other dog to see if they get along together. That meet also went well and then my mom told me to get in the car with our Dachshund. About 1 hour later I see my sister coming to get the backseat ready, I asked her what she’s doing but she didn’t respond so I didn’t anything was up. Another 30 minutes passed and I see him coming to the car. It took all 3 of us to get him in the car because his old owners threw him out of the car in Lockhart, Texas so he was scared of cars a lot. Then we were in our way home.

Once we got home we had to find a better name than his old one. We had many ideas but Blake was the one we all agreed on. We have had him for about 2 weeks from the day I posted this and he’s loving his new home and we love him too. There is no way we will be returning him to the pet shelter. He has found his forever home.
