    • Jenessa. I think you bring up a very important topic in today society. I agree that the immigrants should not have taken the day off work and school to get their point across. I think they needed a way to get their voices heard but I feel there’s much better ways to do it. So far rallying has not done much but they need to be looking for more impactful ways to combat Trump’s policies. I feel that when you said “America can function without immigrants” is a true statement but that would be taking away the lives of so many people that have children and families who need support. Yes it is possible for for our country to be run without immigrants but it is not ideal. We should be excepting of everyone that comes in and give everyone a fair chance at the American Dream.

    • Hi Jenessa! I like how you talk about your own views on the tactics used. I don’t really like the aspect of blowing off school, work, and other commitments either.

    • Jenessa, I have not read this book, but I definitely want to now. I can see how this book is super relatable for someone in high school and not quiet sure where they fit in. I think your summary and analysis of this book was well written. It was short and to the point, very well done!

    • Jenessa,
      I think this is such a cool concept to talk about. I think often in high school we get swept into the mentality that the status quo is all that should be expected, and this sounds like the kind of book that breaks down that state of thinking. Thank you so much for bringing this concept to this website, I’ll be sure to keep my eyes open for this book.

    • I haven’t read this book,however it does sound very interesting to me. I am not a big reader, but being that I am more interested in reading materials that relate more to me, I could get through this with ease. I look forward to reading this book, I hope it’s as good as you made it sound!

    • Hi Jenessa,
      Rarely do I read book reviews, but this one has me wanting to read this book:) Kind of like the Breakfast Club, it interests me how this book challenges the status quo and makes us more aware of what we are privileged to have. Look forward to looking for this book.

    • Janessa,
      I wish you could tell me more but I guess I’ll just have to read the book myself! I think that this book has such a neat concept & I actually love the cover of the book, it’s quite funny! I think that many people have a preconceived idea of high school and popularity so I think this book would be very interesting to read the different perspectives. well done!

    • After reading this I am left wanting more. This is a unique and important topic that is often overlooked. The connection between everyone is there, and it just takes discovering it. I really liked this brief summary, and analysis and want to read the novel!

    • I like how when you give a summary you don’t give away too much of the book, but you tell just enough to hint that it is a good book. It sounds like it would have a good plot and it seems like a book I would be interested in.
