6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Alyse’s entry. Thanks, Alyse!

Laurel-Leaf, 195 p.
Mittey Blake is a rich boy that is in a school for either rich or really smart. He’s in the rich half, Olivia, on the other hand, is extremely smart. Mittey has to do a report on a disease but he can’t figure out what to do. He finds a whole bunch of old books on small pox so he decides to do that. In one of the books he finds small pox scabs. He doesn’t know anything about them so he rubs them
on his face and smells them and everything which was a really bad idea.
Mittey Blake is a rich boy who is in love with Olivia, a girl that falls into the smart category, he is very ignorant. He also really doesn’t like doing homework or more work than necessary.
The person I liked most in the book was Olivia. The reason I liked her most was because she is very intense about her homework and makes sure that it is all one hundred percent perfect. Another reason that I like Olivia is because she is really caring and compassionate.
I recommend this book to kids that can read large books even though it’s not that big the words are very advanced. I also recommend it to almost anyone that likes action.
