It's time for MMGM at A Monster Ate my Book Report! This is our favorite meme, probably because we are Middle-Graders. Make sure you visit Ms. Shannon's blog to see all the other wonderful blogs that are featuring books for Middle- Grade.
Marsh's MMGM pick for this week is First Kill by Heather Brewer!
Heather Brewer's writing is always good and I especially enjoyed it in this book. She is very descriptive. I could picture all of her scenes perfectly--as if I were there. I really liked how the main character, Joss, is strong, courageous, and strong-willed. He is overall a very likeable character, so much so that people have started teams for Joss as well as for Heather Brewer's other book-series' character, Vlad From the Chronicles of Vladimir Todd. (Trust me, even though there are teams, no one wants this to turn into Twilight.) I was honestly blown back by her new writing in these books and some moments shocked me so much that I was paralyzed. I liked how this book was from Joss's point of view so I could see his side of the story. I am really glad to have this as my MMGM pick this week.
