Best Book by Burneshia Sims
What is the best book you have ever read? Why did you like it?
The best book I have ever read was “Like Sisters on the Home front”. This book explains so much more other than life itself. It talks mostly about teenage problems. Problems such as teen pregnancy, teen abortions, and sex. This book is for ages 17 and up.
The character that amazes me the most is the main character of the story which is Gayle. She is a 14 year old girl who is struggling with life. She is only 14 and has had one abortion and now has a son. She has an attitude that basically keeps her up. Even though she is struggling she isn’t too much down as she is happy to have a son that she loves tenderly. Although she does spark a few problems with her mother. Her mother becomes even more upset with her and decides that it is no longer safe in the city of New York but in Georgia, where her Christian cousins live.
As she stays with her cousins and goes to church with them every Sunday, more and more of their nature rubs off on her. She eventually changes for the benefits of life.
I choose this book because I seen this happen before to many young females and I could relate to it.
