Cherish the Book
By Kashada H.
I cherish the book ”Ninth Ward” because it has great details about the setting, especially when it came to the hurricane part of the novel. I also admire that the novel gives descriptive details about how Lanesha and MaMa-YaYa could see ghosts. The author used descriptive characterization of what ghosts do and what they looked like.
I prefer to read the book ”Ninth Ward” by Jewell Parker Rhodes rather than reading it on the Kindle because if you are reading in a group and you are reading with a Kindle, the page structure was different. It would be complicated to read the same paragraphs at the same time. When a group is reading together with the book, the paragraphs are all the same. Although reading with a Kindle was a fun experience, I like reading the book.

This book,” Ninth Ward” by Jewell Parker Rhodes was amazing.I read this book with excitement and enthusiasm.My favorite thing about the book is all the life lessons that comes out through the book.Its immense amount of details and descriptions kept me on my toes to finish the book!
I enjoyed reading the book “Ninth Ward” by Jewell Parker Rhodes because it has a lot of details. For example, the novel provides many metaphors and descriptions of the scene when the hurricane hit. Also, I liked the book “Ninth Ward” because it was not boring. When I read the book it gave me more energy, just like the hurricane.
I prefer reading the Kindle rather than the book because with the book, you lose your page but with the Kindle it saves the page for you. Also, I prefer the Kindle better than the book because when I hold the book in my arms get tired. By contrast, the Kindle is small and light so when I hold the Kindle my arms don’t hurt. I really like the Kindle better than the book.
Page Numbers are Important
By Daniel M.
I loved the book ”Ninth Ward”, by Jewel Parker Rhodes. The part I liked was when Lanesha and Tashon were experiencing Hurricane Katrina, I also liked how she put a lot of details when Lanesha and Tashon were in the flood , it was liked I was there! I also liked how the author described how Tashon and Lanesha got on the roof.
I liked reading the book over reading the Kindle because the book has page numbers and the Kindle does not. You can loose where you left off reading.I liked reading the book over reading on the Kindle.
Keeping up with the Kindle
By Dantay R.
I enjoyed the book”‘Ninth Ward” because courage is the key to survival. Tashon,Lanesha and Spot survived Hurricane Katrina.
I liked reading the book more than reading on the Kindle because the book is easier to read and the Kindle is complicated to change the pages,and keep up while the teacher is reading.

I enjoyed the book “Ninth Ward.” It showed a lot of action in the middle of the plot. It describes in detail the impact of the hurricane on the people who lived during Hurricane Katrina. I can relate to Lanesha because we are both similar in age.
I prefer reading the book rather than on the Kindle because the Kindle is too complicated. On the Kindle, the side buttons are a headache. One slight touch or press, the page will change. It gets me annoyed.
