Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover

Three favorite books that teach a lesson and forced me to experience the characters' feelings.

By Brenna

Books can bring you joy, sadness, anger, and frustartion. I love to experience the emotions of the characters from beginning to end, and get carried away. Here are my three favorite books that taught me a lesson and forced me to experience all those feelings.

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

The main character is 10-year-old August. He has Treacher Collins syndrome and a cleft palate. His face is deformed and everyone makes fun of him. This book is intriguing but, fair warning, it is very sad and emotional so be prepared with a box of tissues. The lesson you will learn from this book is that you can't judge people by how they look on the outside, but you have to judge them by how they act on the inside.

Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper

Melody has cerebral palsy and is trapped in her own body and mind. She can't walk or control her own body, but worst of all, she can't talk. Trapped in your mind would be so aggravating and frustrating. You would just want to yell but then you remember you can't. Melody is a genius but she has to keep it all inside. Compassion is what you learn from this book, compassion for Melody and compassion for everybody.

Night by Elie Wiesel (for ages 12 and up)

Elie Wiesel, the main character, is very tenacious and determined. He was a part of the Jewish Holocaust and was taken to the Auchwitz concentration camp with other Jews. He did not give up, and he survived even when he wanted to die. Thisbook teaches you to not give up when life is hard. Don't come up with an excuse. Push yourself to success and celebrate because you did not give up.
