by Sean Covey
In this book, we talk about the seven most common habits of adolescents that explain how teenagers live their lives without thinking they could use it more productively. Still, all this has a lot to do with our family as well for education and the bad habits that teach us.
They help us how to be better people day by day with elementary and easy examples that we can put to the test with the passing of days. Habits are things that we do suddenly; some are bad, for example. Feeling inferior to other people or some are also good exercises regularly.
This book tries to change the way we act and think. We must always take this into account so that it will help us to be better day by day and motivate us with our achievements.
Something essential and that I liked a lot is that it tells us that there are new ways to expand your mind, and the best approach can be to simply read, as it tells us the reading is for the mind as for the body it is the exercise.
Reading is fundamental, and it is true it costs nothing. On the contrary, we learn a lot and give us some tips that we can practice in our daily lives that are good. Some examples are: that we never want to do something or investigate something that makes us very interesting, or even practice a sport or just play a board game, etc.
To develop these habits requires time and desire, and the most is that we face ourselves, but starting at the beginning, being proactive, we will have taken the first big step to achieve effectiveness.
The examples he shows us are applied in the daily life of every adolescent, so he can see where he is standing and what he can do to improve. From how to leave the security area, to how to keep progressing all the time, without forgetting the paradigm changes of ourselves that we are the most valuable treasure.

The title of the book is ‘To Kill A Mockingbird.’ The book describes how it is considered a crime when you kill a mockingbird. It is seen as a crime because they do nothing but sing: “Shoot all the bluejays you want, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.
Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens. They don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us! That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” (Page 90) What this has to do with the rest of the story is that in the time when the book took place, it was seen as a crime to act like a white person for a black person to come.

by J. D. Salinger
The theme of the book is war. It is about the life of a soldier in the First World War. In the book, you read well how life was for a soldier and what the consequences of a war are. The title refers to the day that Paul dies. After Kat died, Paul also killed as the last of the group shortly before the end of the war.
He died on a day when it was relatively quiet at the front. So there was the message that nothing happened “I’m Westen Nichts Neues.” Paul has survived the war until then; he does not pay attention and is still shot. His death is not essential for the course of the war.
That is why the message “I’m west Nichts Neues” is passed on when people ask how things are in the west. The motto gives the intention of the book. The writer wants to make clear what the consequences of a war are for his generation. And not only for the people had who fought in the war, but also for people who did not fight.
by Betty Smith
The promised American classic about a young girl’s coming of age at the turn of the twentieth century.
From the moment she entered the world, Francie Nolan needed to be made of stern stuff, for the often harsh life of Williamsburg demanded fortitude, precocity, and strength of spirit.
Often scorned by neighbors for her family’s erratic and eccentric behavior — such as her father Johnny’s taste for alcohol and Aunt Sissy’s habit of marrying serially without the formality of divorce — no one, least of all Francie, could say that the Nolans’ life lacked drama.
By turns overwhelming, sublime, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the Nolans’ daily experiences are tenderly threaded with family connectedness and raw with honesty.
Betty Smith has, in the pages of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, captured the joys of humble Williamsburg life-from “junk day” on Saturdays, when the children of Francie’ s neighborhood traded their weekly take for pennies, for the special excitement of holidays, bringing cause for celebration and revelry.
Betty Smith has artfully caught this sense of exciting life in a novel of childhood, replete with incredibly precious moments or universal experiences — a truly remarkable achievement for any writer.
by Nicola Yoon
