Wiki.answers or Wiki.stupid?

I've had nothing but bad experiences with Wiki.answer . com. First I received cyberbullying from one of the site's supervisors. I tried to ask what was wrong and he threatened to take my account away. He didn't even say for what! Again I tried to ask what was going on and he spiked my account! That's right, he suspended it! Do you know why he did all that? My religion! He doesn't like anybody's religion but his own as made clear by his messages to me. There is no need to get yourself rapped up0 in this nonsense. There's plenty of other sites where you can ask questions but never go to Wiki.answers . com! And on top of that, half of the answers are incorrect... 3/4 of it actually! Save yourself and NEVER be Ready2Read these answers.

Gregor the Overlander

This book is one of my favorites from Collins. It really was a big surprise for me since I'm used to reading YA - Young Adult - type books. This book was actually more fore tweens witch was fine by me. Gregor had manged to fall down a tube when he saw his sister go down and landed in a mysterious world...

Even though this book was fiction, it's not that far off from what some kids are facing today. That is, big responsibility. Gregor was only eleven yet he took care of his two younger sisters and his elderly grand-mother. The reason for this was a full time working mother who was barely ever at home. I could honestly say this I had fun reading this book. Of course a few times I think I was on the brink of insanity trying to figure out what would happen next! Another thing I could point out is a lesson that we could all learn from. In the book when Gregor traveled to the odd world, rats were - in a comic book like way of saying it - the bad guys. They were evil. But one rat stood out. He was Ripred and he helped Gregor. At first Gregor didn't like him and actually hated him because of what rats did to his father so even though Ripred was good, Gregor held a grudge to all rats. We mustn't hate all for something one person did or
vice versa. In conclusion, as long as you have a kid's imagination... you should be Ready2Read this book!
