An overview of the different components of American Government, and what a Christian's part in this is. This book is for the 12th grade, and can go with the Abeka Economics book.

One of the best things about Bleach is the artwork. This book holds some artwork directly related to the series, and some pictures that are just totally crazy. Tite Kubo's art is so creative, beautiful, and fun. I got this book from the library, and kept I kept going back to it the whole time I had it. You'll find this really cool if you're a Bleach fan.

It's a good idea for a book, but I think it's lacking in some areas.
Pros: The storyline is good--a city kept underground for generations, with its citizens not knowing anything about the outside world. It keeps a good pace. It has morals--the characters learn things such as self-control or unselfishness.
Cons: The writing style is quite simple--not a lot of variety in the words. The dialogue seems fake, making the characters lack personality. There are a few plot holes, but nothing too major.
Overall, I'd say it's OK. It kept me interested, but not fascinated.


The Fallacy Detective: Thirty-Six Lessons on How to Recognize Bad Reasoning

Really, really great book. I learned so much from this, and I had fun learning it! My mother and sister and I went through this book a few years ago, but it still helps me identify fallacies I hear so often in arguments. This book is helpful, logical, and witty!

I've read this book twice, and both times I've been glued to the spot, reading chapter after chapter, not able to put it down. This rarely happens, especially when I'm reading a book for the second time, so I thought it was worth a review. I love the Harry Potter series, and this sequal is fun, exciting, and keeps me entertained through the whole book.
