Book: The Kite Runner
Author: Khaled Hosseini

The Kite Runner has the ability to make you want to read it all day, the suspense is unbearable. This book is like no other book I’ve ever read. It is extremely captivating and is tremendously emotional.
Some things I really enjoyed about this book was the inspiration quotes/sayings in this book. The quotes/ sayings really help you understand the characters personality. I also really enjoyed the mystery to this book, you get to learn a lot about each character and their past.
Somethings that I disliked about the book was the ending, the ending left me upset because it was not the way I was expecting it to end, I really felt like the ending needed to be changed. The characters personalities were so beautifully written that you just wanted to read about what they were doing throughout the whole story.
The the biggest plot twist in this book is the mystery that is hidden behind each character’s past, these mysteries also help tie in all the connections between each character. In my opinion this plot twist is very important for the story, the reason I think this is because it’s important that when your reading a book you need to know things about the characters, this can also help make a connections between yourself and the characters, I personally made a lot of connections while reading this book which is important for understanding the character choices.
This is a really good book for teens to read because it teaches a lot of compassion and is a great way to help teens with the decisions they choose to make, the reason for this is because they will be able to tell the outcome for each decision they make.
Rating: I would personally rate this book a 4.5/5 stars.

The black culture has evolved musically, socially and politically in the last two decades in Canada. Carlos Ferguson’s photography has captured some of the faces of that evolution in Ontario.
This photo documentary work, part of the AfroCanadaViews which interviewed and documented the views of African Canadians (whose works have positively impacted Canadian society) has added another voice to that definition.
Engaging both the traditional photography and digital imaging as tolls, he has captured part of the spirit of an evolving, vibrant black culture in Ontario.
