- Reflection, Connection & Personal Response:
This was by far one of my most favourite books. I enjoyed reading this book, the story was unique but its vocabulary did and style did not challenge me. Throughout the book I did not struggle with the vocabulary and the style was very similar to other books. I enjoy how this book shows real world problems and a site of the future. It gives a slight bit of fantasy and creativity. I can connect this book with my real life by realizings the struggles most people of this world have to go through.
