Student Book Review: Lowell’s review of Shades of Gray, by Carolyn Reeder

Shades of Gray

by Carolyn Reeder

I love Shades of Gray.  I know that it is impossible that you will not like Shades of Gray.  I think that if you read this book you will find it full of happiness and depression.  Some people just past over books like this for just reading the first page or even looking just at the cover.  This is a book like that.  You’re just looking at it cover if you just read the first page or even literally look at it’s cover.  You are even looking at it’s cover if you read the whole book but don’t think about it.  Only if you really look deep you’re reading Shades of Gray.  I hope you truly read it.

Now for a summary that doesn’t give away too much:

Just after the Civil War, there lived a boy named Will.  Will had lost everything he love.  His family, his possessions, and his slaves.  Most of all he was going to live with his Uncle, who he thinks at the time is a traitor.  The family that he see’s at first maes he think that this family could never be his family.  Over time he realises differently.  Read the book to find out more.

     I recommend this book to everyone who will enjoy it as much as I did.  I hope that if you read it you will not only enjoy it, but understand the book Shades of Gray.  Please at least try this book.  Normally you might not read books that are in the past.  Maybe not even classics in some cases.  I hope you read Shades of Gray!

This student book review was written by Lowell, a Johnson Elementary School student, and shared with the library via Google Docs. Lowell drafted and typed the book review independently. Lowell is in the fourth grade.
