Write a book review for me.  Here's a how-to list:

1) Introduce Type of Book

  • Identify the book by author and title.
  • Include some background and describe the general problem in the book.

2) Briefly Summarize the Story

  • Briefly review the story line for readers, being careful not to give away anything shocking or important.

3) Include Graphics

  • Book covers grab your readers’ attention. Show off what the book looks like by including a graphic.
  • Or, even better, find a graphic that relates to something in the book!

4) Provide Your Reactions to the Book

  • Describe the book: Is it interesting, memorable, entertaining, or instructive? Why?
  • Relate the book to larger issues: How did the book affect you? How have your opinions about the topic changed?

5) Be Honest About Your Review

  • Throughout your book review, it’s important to remain honest. Don’t tell us you loved a book when you really couldn’t stand it just because you think that's what people want to hear.
