    Your project is not too crowded which is good I also liked how you were very thorough with your description of the book. However I feel that you didn't include enough pictures. I liked how you included a video and your information was very organized, I also liked the quote you included. However I do feel that you should have changed the background, but great job overall!

    I liked how you explained the book well, and gave plenty of information. The video was a little confusing, but I was glad that you included it. I agree with Danny that you needed some more pictures, and the background did not match. I think that the quote was a perfect one to choose, and you did a great job.

    Sophia, I really liked how you explained this book. I read this same book a few years ago and I had no idea what any of it meant. I was so confused throughout the whole story and this book report makes the book make so much sense. I loved how you explained the protagonist and antagonist with so much detail.I like this placement of your information because it makes my eyes go towards the center where the video is which explain most of this book. I could see how some people might be confused with the video if they haven’t read the book because the book isn’t very easy to get even if you have read it. Overall I thought it was great and I think the lack of pictures isn't that big of a deal considering the book doesn’t have very much information on setting or appearances. I completely agree with your rating and I just really enjoyed your book project!
