Letter To Mr. McGuire

November 18, 2010 § 2 Comments

In the Reading Workshop the sixth graders did an assignment where we had to write a letter to him about our books. I wrote about the book Zach’s Lie. I hope you like my letter!

Dear Mr. McGuire,

I would recommend the book I’m reading Zach’s Lie by Ronald Smith to everyone in sixth grade. I noticed that this book was one of your favorites so I decided to try it out and this is my first impression, so far this book is getting off to a great start and I think I’m getting hooked. I’ve never read anything like this book. I think that Zach would have to be  my favorite character because, he’s kind of shy and at the same time kind of secretive and clumsy.

I also think that I know why you like this book. I think it’s because this book is full of action and you never know whats going to happen next. I think this book is one of my favorites too because, it’s unique in it’s own way. Especially when Zach has to move to a whole different place with a new name and a new identity.

I really like the part in the book where Zach has to get his hair dyed and he is throwing a fit because he thinks he will look like an albino with his hair blond. I’m surprised that he let them give him blue eyes, but in the end he keeps his brown hair and just gets his hair cut. I also like the part when the book talks about how he is mad because his sister got to pick her name and he didn’t. I think he was kind of jealous.

I really like this book and I’m glad you have it up on the wall so people can read some really good books. I also have a goal to read all of your favorite books up on the wall before the end of the year. So far I’ve read seven of them and I hope to read The Face On The Milk Carton next. I’ve heard it’s good.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter and I am also grateful that you recommended this book to people by putting it up on your wall. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I really like the book!

Sincerely your student,
