2nd Quarter Choice Reading Book Write Up

Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen

Copyright 2007


325 Pages

"You'll get lost in the tatty glamour of Gruen's meticulously researched world, from spangled equestrian pageantry and the sleazy side show to an ill-fated night at a Chicago speak-easy."
- The Washington Post
You can tell this book obviously is sufficiently challenging for a high school sophomore just by reading the reviews, which use more sophisticated grammar than I, or most sophomores are used to.

I chose the book "Water for Elephants" because I like challenging myself with harder reads- such as Water for Elephants. Also, this book was Bestseller according to the Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the New York Times.
