    7. Like all the books in this series, it involves a fast paced story I liked the way the story was put forward with the father reading out his Impact statement and what his younger son actually feels or does that day or the events that led to those thoughts What I did not like was the inability to build real characters with whom you empathize That s sad considering the message actions and consequences is really an important one

    8. This book from our classroom library is part of a genre called HiLo High Interest, Low Level which includes books thought to be of interest to adolescents who don t gravitate toward or who struggle with reading While it is true that the book is thin and small, which make it appealing to many students, and while the vocabulary and sentence structure are not advanced, many students who don t often read will have trouble understanding this book When Fountas Pinnell were developing their leveling sy [...]

    14. For a really short book, this actually has a little bit of an interesting story in it, although the size requires that the character development is pretty limited Instead, it reads like a a short story or novella with a twist at the end that doesn t seem quite built up to enough, partially because we don t know the characters too well There is a little bit of meat that would be worth discussing but somehow Impact still left me feeling a little unsatisfied.

    15. I just read a book called impact and I thought it was really good because it s a mystery, and once you start reading it, you wont want to stop It s about this boy named Jordan s brother Mark who got killed But they still don t know if it was an accident or not Read this book to find out what happened to Mark if you like mystery stories I certainly think you should read this book

    16. Jordan s brother died two years ago, and he and his family have been asked to make victim impact statements in court This book explores the killing and its aftermath through Jordan s point of view, and it handles his feelings with realistic sympathy The beginning it a tiny bit confusing, which is why I gave it three stars instead of four The kept me turning pages all the way through.

    17. This is the first book I ve read in the Orca Soundings series for young adults It s a high interest, low reading level series from Canada I liked this story, told from the point of view of a teen whose brother was murdered, and did not expect the little twist at the end I ll have to read in this series, which I hope will be as good as this one was.

    18. A little less corny than some of the other Orca books, the plot is engaging and I would definitely recommend for my reluctant readers

    19. Very nice story However, it s some sort of similar to the books from Orca Soundings, so that is a little bit boring.

    20. I really loved this book It made me want to know what was going to happen next Also one thing I really didn t like was when Jordan ketp comparing his self to Mark.

    21. Very easy and quick read, finished it from the time it took me to go from the library to the cloest subway station to home OK, well structured book but just a tad too simple.

    22. Decent hi lo book for kids interested in personal drama and life and death situations There s a twist at the end.
