Extra Credit by Andrew Clements

Book review by Luke

I read the book Extra Credit. The main characters are Abby, Sadeed Bayat, Amira and Abby’s parents. Abby does very poorly in school, and has to do an extra credit project, or else she will fail the sixth grade. Abby lives in Illinois. Sadeed lives Pakistan, with his sister and mom. Some people in Pakistan hear about the letters being passed between countries and people don’t like it. Sadeed is threatened, and is frightened.

I think this is a great book, because this sounds like something that would happen in real life and I am interested in that. Also, I liked this book because of the suspense, and I couldn’t stop reading. My favorite part was when Sadeed runs into the mysterious man with a turban. The man does not like Americans and rips up Sadeed’s letter. The surprising part is when Sadeed disobeyed his teacher and sent two notes at once to tell Abby that is really was him sending the letters, not his younger sister. I would recommend this book to the whole class because this book is for boys and girls, and I think everyone likes exciting stories.
