This book follows the story of teenager Craig Gilner. He wants to succeed but nearly kills himself over it. The book follows his journey with his mental health and all the ups and downs along the way. To me, the book was in a way very relatable, which I personally always love in a book. The way that Craig reacted to situations and simply the things he struggled with as a teen, is very compelling and I sort of saw myself in him a little bit, as I am also a teenager.

Wink is a weird and not so enjoyable fiction novel by Rob Harrel. This book is about a kid named Ross, one day in the middle of summer he finds a big lump on his right eye. Ross gets diagnosed with a rare eye cancer, at school, he is known as the cancer kid. Ross has to deal with a lot of stuff like his eye goo, winking, and bullies. I love the way the author adds funny comics and pictures to describe the story, but the way the author presented the book wasn’t enjoyable to me.

Teen Review Oct 21, 2021

Although there have been many negative comments towards The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, I liked it and thought it was entertaining and fun to watch. The animations were spectacular, and the storyline was brilliant. The second LEGO movie began with the world fast forwarding five years later. Wildstyle became more intense than ever with the rest of the civilization of Bricksburg as well while Emmet stayed the same with an “everything is awesome” way.

Although Kung Fu Panda 3 is my least favorite of the franchise, it is not terrible. The franchise has been an amazing watch and I hold it up to a very high standard. This movie was funny and had an adventure, but I did not like it as much as the previous two because in the 3rd movie they added the Pandas in as main characters instead of the Furious Five which made side characters mainly.
