Mister Creecher by Chris Priestley
This book made me think about what it must feel like to have to steal to survive and how lonely “Creecher” would be.This book made me feel not upset but it made me feel like I had a new view on the world because I know this kind of thing still happens today (i.e. Billy having to steal).
This book made me wish that nobody had to live like Billy or Creecher because no one should have to live like that.
This book made me realize that the author wanted people to realize that people have to live like Billy or Creecher today.
This book made me want to help people who are treated like they’re monsters or have to steal by maybe donating money to charities.

Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
This book made me think about how hard it must be to be autistic and not being able to see things the way other people can.
This book made me feel a bit sad at what she must be going through, missing Devon, however it was funny in some parts.
This book made me wish that nobody was autistic or special needs.
This book made me realize that there is nothing wrong with autistic people; they just act slightly strange.
This book made me decide to be nicer to autistic people because I never really understood them.
