KEVIN MAHEY's Review of One Piece 2
“I’m gonna become the King of the pirates and obtain the One Piece.” This a story about a child named Monkey D. Luffy who has dreamed to become the King of the pirates. His whole life changed when he accidentally consumed he Gum-Gum fruit an enchanted fruit that gave him the ability to stretch like rubber. The only drawback is that he can never swim again. A serious handicap for an aspiring pirate at sea.
Usopp is the local Liar/Prankster of his village by shouting every morning that, “Pirates are coming!” Captain Kuro of the Black Cat Pirates had been laying low as a butler and biting his time for the perfect moment to strike the richest in the village, Kaya. Usopp had overheard Kuro and his plan to strike the village and tried to warn all of the residents of the village, but no-one believed him. So, he joins forces with Luffy and the Straw hat pirates o defeat Captain Kuro and his forces if they can.
I believe that this is a really incredible novel. It is one of the best series of books I’ve ever read. This is a book mainly on action and comedy if you’re into that kind of fictional book. Some of the action was outrageous and takes both pages of the manga. One piece gets you enticed into the characters’ abilities a limitations. In this series of manga there is a sense of mystery lingering over everything that we don’t know who else had eaten the devil fruit and how powerful they are. With this, there is always is a thought at the back of our minds that, “Will the Straw hat pirates survive?”
KARLA RAYA PAREDES Reviews THE ONE by Kiera Cass
The book I read was is from The Selection Series: “ The One” By: Kiera Cass. This book was published in 2014. Four girls who remain at the palace are rivals who have faced many dangers and are bound to each other for the rest of their lives. Now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen. America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown - or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose - and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.
I would totally recommend this book, and of course the other books from the Selection Series. I really loved this book because America, the main character of the story, chooses to fight for the one she loves. Even though the king, Maxon’s father, doesn’t want America to become the next princess because she doesn’t act like a lady and ignores the king’s orders. So the king wants to kick America out of the palace.
I would recommend this book to those who love to read young adult fiction. I also love to read other genres, but for now The Selection Series is one of my favorite series to read. I liked how the story ended. Now that I’m finished with the third book I am moving to the fourth book of the Selection Series. I hope I like this book too.
