In school my class we are reading a book called 8th Grade SuperZero by Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich. This book is about a boy named Reggie and his life in and outside of school.
I think Reggie is really nervous for his big speech as a president candidate. Also with the humiliating reminder that he puked all over the stage in the beginning of the year, which was where he got his nickname, Pukey. Not just that horrible reminder but what will happen if he actually did it again or completely humiliates himself in front of everyone. I think Reggie is unsure of himself and is afraid he will make the same mistake and everyone would laugh at him. I can’t even imagine the feeling of what he was feeling at the time and for him to experience that same feeling again would just be dreadful.
Reggie is the type of kid who is shy, but during the course of the book he has grown to being this kid who just doesn’t want to stand around but make a difference. After seeing George and Charlie at the homeless shelter he realizes there is so much more people could do to help. Also I think Reggie is tired of watching and wants to do something and thats why he’s running for president.
Before my class started reading the book I wasn’t sure how I was going to like the book but after getting into it, I realized there is more than meets the eye. In 8th grade SuperZero there are many twists and turn that will really grab and pull you in. There are many characters that help make the story what it is and bits of humor tied into the book. 8th Grade SuperZero by Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich is a great read that I recommend to all of you. It will leave you hanging and making you want to read more.
