Student Saturday: The Homework Machine - Dan Gutman

Student Review by Madison D.

This is an okay book to read.  Some people do not enjoy homework, but some people do.  I am one of those people who enjoys homework.  I think if you don’t like homework you should read this book.  If you are like me and enjoy homework you might still like it.  I found that I didn’t like some of the opinions in the book as much.

This book is about a group of kids in school called the “P” Squad.    They invent something called the homework machine.  If you want to know what it is you will need to read the book to find out.  I could make a lot of personal connections to this book.  However, the one thing that stood out the most to me was when Brenton said he didn’t need friends to live.  I am like Brenton.  I realize that I don’t need friends to live either.  There were some good lessons to be learned from this book such as: think before you do things, everything and everyone has consequences, choose your friends wisely, don not choose a friend because of their grades. 

Make sure you check out this book.  It is a quick, easy book to read.
