6th Grade entry - No Talking

NO Talking
By: Andrew Clements

The book No Talking ,is about a boy named Dave Dave is a sixth grader that has brown hair and loves to talk a lot! There is also a girl named Lynsey and she is a sixth grader too and she is the queen of the blabber mouth she can just go on and on about one subject and she also has brown hair. Lynsey thinks boys talk more and Dave thinks girls talk more . Dave and Lynsey are not best friends at all!
Dave once read in a book about Ghani that he went for a whole day and when he was not talking brought order to his mind, so that is where Dave got the idea of not talking.
So they have a competition seeing if girls talk more or boys. All the teachers liked the peace and quiet, but after a while they got tired of it and they told the kids that they could say three words at a time or don’t even come to school only if the teacher asked a question they could say three words, because they would not even talk . If the teachers asked for example, what is 4+16 and they would have to say, “answer is 20” or else that team would loose. The teachers tried so hard to make the students talk more than three words so they started to ask harder questions. So the competition would be over and the students would talk normal. The competition went for a long time. What I liked about this book is 1st Andrew Cements is one of my favorite authors 2nd the book had a lot of details and 3rd it was a funny book. I think this book was a 2 out of 5 because it was a little easy to read but, I think a lot of people would enjoy this book because it is a really funny book. The book has 197 pages I think.
