Flush is about a boy named Noah. Noah is trying to prove that Dusty Muleman, the owner of a casino boat called the Coral Queen, is dumping sewage into the waters. Noah’s father blew up the boat and was put in jail. Noah and Abbey, his younger sister, are trying to help their dad. Noah and Abbey can’t do this task without help so they get Lice, a friend of their dad’s, to help them. He agrees to help but disappears. Lice’s girlfriend, Shelly, said she would help them with Operation Royal Flush. I would rate this book 3 stars. It was not the greatest book I ever read, and it was not a fast paced book.

School’s Out Forever

I just read the second book in the Maximum Ride series. The Flock just escaped from the School and is attacked by flying Erasers and Fang is injured. When Fang is in the hospital, the FBI interrogates them. After Fang is healed, the Flock stays with one of the FBI agents named Anne Walker. Anne decides to send them to school and they are not very pleased with that. While they go to school, they found Iggy’s parents. Also, Max goes on a date with a boy. At the end, the Flock figure out that Anne is working for Jeb, a scientist who broke them out and betrayed them, and they run away. Sadly before they figure out that Anne is working for Jeb, they take Iggy to his parents. When they run away, Iggy returns and says that his parents were trying to make money off of him. (People, never make money off your kids.)  I would rate this book 4- ½ stars because it is very nerve wracking and it has a lot of action in it.

The Angel Experiment

I just read a book called The Angel Experiment by James Patterson. It is about five kids who are 98% human and 2% bird. The main character is named Max. Max’s family includes Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gassy or Gas Man, and Angel. This book is about the “Flock” (that is what Max calls the family) who is living in secret hiding from the place called the School. The School is the place where they were mutated. The main problem is that Erasers, a human wolf hybrid, kidnap Angel and the Flock leaves to find her. I would rate this book a 4-½ stars. I love it that the book is about mutants and it takes place in the same time as us.

Becoming a Tenderfoot

I just have become a Tenderfoot for Boy Scouts. My dad is happy for me and it is great for me because it means I am one step closer to becoming an Eagle Scout. Before I became a Tenderfoot I had to do some requirements and then I had to do a Board of Review. My dad said the Board of Review would be hard but it really wasn’t difficult. Even though it was easy I was terrified about what I was going to do in the Board of Review. Fortunately it was very simple.

Examples of requirements:

Demonstrate how to fuse and whip the ends of a rope.

Demonstrate how to care for somebody who is choking.

Spend at least one night on a patrol or troop campout, and sleep in a tent that you have helped pitch.
