    6. So I picked this up prepared to be enthralled by a spelling bee and spelling bee practice, timelines, what not I m fairly interested in spelling bees What are they How do they work This turned out to be not that But I wasn t disappointed, because the dialogue came right off the page, the characters were all likable, and I genuinely felt concern for the main character.That s about it Oh, and my cover has a bunch of girls at the bottom and I can t figure out who any of them are supposed to be in t [...]


    7. I think the book was very exciting because there was a large amount of foreshadowing that made you want to read on.Spellbound really gave you a true life example of how you shouldnt get caught up with peer pressure and sex at a young age because the main character, Raven had a child in High School and had to drop out I really believe that other students should read spellbound because they should have at least an idea of how life is.


    8. I thought this book was pretty good It shows how we all encounter difficulties in life, some extremely tough, but if you are determined for success you will overcome those difficulties Rav had it tough getting pregnant at 16, and although she didn t finish high school, her mom Gwen sister Dell and best friend Ai helped her reach her dreams of going to college by winning the spelling contest to earn a scholarship to a 4 year college.


    9. I thought I would not enjoy this book and found it was indeed enjoyable The author lives overseas but portrays the reality and emotions of the pregnant young teen in the inner city projects with amazing insight.


    10. This was a super easy read with such an inspirational message It wasn t overly dramatic, but very eventful I liked it





    11. what a great realistic book Janet Mcdonald is a great author who writes books that speak the truth with relatable characters I was very proud of raven she came a long way



    12. this book is really good.ough they talk about ghetto a lot and they always use odd words but it s still really good.


    13. Well written, thoughtful, and at times funny young adult novel about a teenage mother trying to get her life back together.


    14. Being able to relate to this story on a certain level, I found it to be quite motivating for young teens who ve made a few mistakes Overall, I would recommend this story for young readers.
