    The most interesting book that I read this summer was Paper Towns by John Green. As a teenager who loves pop culture, I always forget that my idols are just ordinary people who go through the same things I do. I often imagine celebrities as this all mighty entity that have the ability to do anything but in reality they are no different than me. This book taught me that people are nothing more than people and it is unfair to believe that they are anything more.

      The most interesting book that I read this summer was “In the Unlikely Event” by Judy Blume. The book followed many different characters from many walks of life, from a 15 Jewish girl to a 45 year old catholic man to a 25 year old Greek girl to a 16 year old orphan boy, and displayed how many different people from different back grounds react to the same tragedies. The really interesting part was that while the characters where fiction, the back drop of the story was of three very real tragedies hat happened in New Jersey in 1952.

    I’d have to say Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. It was really interesting to learn about a part of Japanese culture that, as a Canadian teenager, I knew next to nothing about previously.

    The most interesting book I read this summer was the memoir, I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. It describes in great detail every moment in her life and those around her, especially for her fight for an education. She is a strong feminist icon that I look up to. Being able to know more about her story allowed me to know why we truly need feminism and why it is so important to not take what we have for granted.

    My favorite book this summer was Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. This book is a realistic fiction book that is about a romance that forms between two teenagers in the 80’s. I really enjoyed it because it’s not your typical sappy love story. It’s about to misfit teenagers who have real life problems with real life consequences that make the book even more heartfelt, and exciting to read.

    This summer, I read The Boy who Harnessed the Wind. As I was reading about William and his dream to bring electricity to Africa, it occurred to me how little it takes to impact the world. Just like a rippling water effect, William was able to bring electricty to his village, and it spread like wildfire. This story inspired me so much, and I recommend it to everyone.
