Something’s Rotten in Denmark
Has your uncle ever married your mom a month after your dad dies? Well for Hamilton Prince it has because he has to live with that everyday of his life. The title of the book I read is Something Rotten by Alan Gratz. This book has five main characters. The characters consist of Horatio Wilkes, Hamilton Prince, Trudy Prince, Claude Prince, and Olivia Mendelsohn. This story takes place in Denmark Tennessee, in the twenty-first century. First Horatio comes down to Denmark to stay with his friend Hamilton for the summer. Then they find Olivia Mendelsohn protesting about their polluted river from the Hamilton’s family paper plant. Next they are given a video that says Hamilton’s father was murdered. After that they both start questioning everyone while two of Hamilton’s old middle school buddies come down and play his video games drink all his soda. Then Hamilton shoots Olivia’s dad thinking it Claude while Hamilton’s drunk. Next the family realizes he has a drinking problem and his two old middle school buddies drive Hamilton to a clinic to help teen alcoholics. Next Horatio and Olivia get on the news because Olivia drinks some of the river water and becomes very sick and sent to the hospital. Then Horatio calls the clinic to see when he can visit Hamilton but they say know one ever signed Hamilton up for the clinic in the first place. Then Horatio assumes the two old middle school friends are paid to kill Hamilton. Next Horatio finds Hamilton and they solve the case about Claude really killing Hamilton’s father. My opinion on this book is that it always keeps you on the edge of your seat with many plot twists, and a sad but exiting tone in the story. I hold this opinion because there are many exiting events in the story and you can never expect when they happen. All in all this was a great story and I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys fast paced books and...

The smoke stakes are releasing too much pollutant into the air to the point the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has begun to fine the corporation.

...Far from verity
After taking time reading this eye opening novel “Lies My Teacher Told Me” written by Dr. James W. Loewen, the book has open my mind to American History and the reality of everyday life, for example on the topics of Helen Keller, the unbelievable truth of Woodrow Wilson, the exploration of Christopher Columbus, and the inverse truth of heroes and sheroes. To begin with, in textbooks I have read, Woodrow Wilson was seemed as one of the most important man and promising to the blacks when it came to segregation times; however that was not the case after reading. In the novel, Woodrow actually promised blacks numerous things, quite the opposite he popularized segregation between the Southern Whites and Blacks. Just to name a few of his broken promises, the former president assigned positions in the government to the Southern whites rather than assigning them to the Blacks whom were already assigned the positions, shut down African-American newspapers, segregated the navy, and even threw out black visitors from the white house. History textbooks barely mention this “black mark” on Wilson Woodrow’s presidential term. Not too surprising, but quite eye opening that Christopher Columbus’ odyssey was the result of push for wealth, yet American textbooks doesn’t put it that way. Domination was a signature for Columbus’ journey when Loewen said “If textbooks included these facts, they might induce students to thing intelligently about why the West...
