The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch
i give this book 4 out of 5 stars. i give it that rating because it does not have much action until the end or the very beginning. The rest of the book is about him talking about his past life or his friends that he made at the village. Also about how he is in love with Jenny.
I chose this book because when i read the summary on the back the sounded very interesting and sounded like there was going to be a lot of action. My opinion of this book is it was very good. The book had a lot of interesting and difficult things happening in the kids life which made me very interested to see what happens next. My favorite part of the book was when the dad died because i was thinking that Stephen was going to go crazy now that he was on his own to live. What i liked about the book was a lot of deaths happened which made me want to read more to see if anybody else would die. what i disliked was how some of it was a love story between him and a girl. I would recommend this book to someone who likes survival stories.
