Today is going to be a catch-up to get everything completed and turned in. The following is what needs to be finished:

Imagine you are writing a book review (which really is a summary) of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, where every word you use costs money. Each word used costs $.10 and you only have $2.00 to spend. That means you can use 20 words.
Now that you have written your 20 word review of Charlotte Doyle, do the same kind of review for your FREE READING book – $.10 per word, $2.00 to spend, 20 words. Also, you must tell what book you are reading, both title and author.
Recap: For this post you will write TWO book reviews of 20 words each, one for Charlotte Doyle and one for your Free Read book (including title & author).
