This term I chose to read Cress by Marissa Meyer. All of these books are based on fairy tales (which makes them a fractured fairy tale) and I really like those types of books. I also chose it because I have read the first 2 books which are Cinder and Scarlet. Cress is the third book to these chronicles and at the end of the books I have read so far, it leaves it on a cliffhanger, so I needed to read the next book, and I plan to read the entire series.
The reading level of my book is grades 7th through 9th grade. I am in 8th grade so that is perfect. On amazon is says the grade level is 7th through 9th and I’m pretty sure that that is correct. The age of my main character is 17 or 18 and her name is Cress, short for Crescent. I don’t think that kids younger than 6th grade are going to like this book because it has a lot of romance and I don’t think that little kids would appreciate that.
Cress has gotten 3 awards. Here they are.

This book hasn’t been made into a movie, but I really want it too. I think that it has enough details and things that happen to make it into a movie. I think that the whole series should be made into a movie. I don’t think that this book is well known in Utah because the author does not live here. I think that it would be well known more from where she wrote it and where she is from.
What I already know about my character is that she has been stuck on a satellite her whole entire life and is only visited by a thaumaturge about once a month just to check that she’s not dead. I also know that she has extremely long hair and is only a little over 5 feet tall. Another little detail I know about Cress is that she only has one dress and has been wearing it since she was 13 years old. If I already started my book report and put a message in a bottle, something that might be in there would be the life story of cress and what she does all day on the boring satellite stuck on a screen all day long.
