Student Review: Posted (John David Anderson)

19 Dec

Posted is an exciting story about a male character named Frost who struggles to find his identity and solve the problems going on with his friends.

Frost wants to be the glue to keep his old and new friends together as one group instead of being five friends who fall apart.  But, when one person joins the group, another leaves, and when they try to fix this problem, it just gets worse.  Most of the sticky notes being passed around are full of humour and honesty, but some have very mean comments, and in the end, nothing will ever be the same with the kids at Branton Middle School.

This book has a lot of realistic drama with friends and family that is typical in middle school.  I like how this book is relatable because of those problems and the choices the main character makes.  I also like that there are different scenes in this book that I wouldn’t expect.  For example, a new girl comes in and another girl gets suspended.  I was very intrigued by the fact that there is a connection between the events, but I didn’t see it coming.

The characters were my favourite part of the story.  The author created unique ones that I don’t read about in other stories.  For example, there is a rich kid who doesn’t actually like doing what rich people do.  That’s interesting for me.

I wish this book had more details given about the adventures.  There are many fun adventures, but there are some parts that didn’t feel too real.  I don’t know that I would have enough energy to go up and down a deadly mountain like the kids do in the story.

I think I’d recommend this book for kids aged 8 to 12.  If they like friendship stories, diaries, and adventures, they’ll like this one.

This book has an awesome start and a touching ending.  I’m really glad I read it.
