    Im not 100% sure on the task but:

    -What a fantastic line up we have in store for you today!

    -After much thought, I believe that the moral in this awe inspiring novel is to never judge a book by its cover.

    -In addition, it is laid out in a clever first person perspective, creating a sense of empathy, in which a blend of important issues are included such as; bullying, friendship problems and family issues. Portraying a picture to the reader that many people can relate to.

    -August is constantly conquering adversity.

    …a moving and inspiring story taking us through the life of Charlie as he takes on his first year of high school.

    Readers can relate to the similar experiences Charlie is going through, making them feel somewhat closer personally to Charlie.

    Charlie also discovers love’s sharp sting as he embarks into the world of love and feelings towards a beautiful and intellectual girl named Sam.

    Everyone needs to escape from their life’s problems now and again; even if it is escaping to someone else’s!

    However, some people may not relate to Charlie’s world that seems too overwhelming for him, an may not have similar experiences.
