Spectacular Summoner Series

Do you love fantasy books full of action, adventure, and magic?  If so, you should read The Summoner Series, by Taran Matharu.  This series, so far, is a trilogy (a series of only three books), featuring The Novice, The Inquisition, and The Battlemage.  I recently finished The Battlemage, and I cannot wait for the next book to be released.  Anyways, enough rambling, here is a little background information about the series (with no spoilers).

Firstly, all of the basic information in The Summoner Series: the setting, characters, storyline, etcetera.  The story is about a boy named Fletcher, who was abandoned by his parents as a baby. He was left in front of the gates of a city called Pelt.  Eventually, when Fletcher was older, there was a festival where a group of travelling merchants occupied the city of Pelt.  Fletcher bought a strange book that was all about demon mythology, and he accidentally…  The only other thing that I can say without spoiling the series is that the story takes place in the Medieval Times (buildings were made out of stone, territories were divided into villages, and most people were pheasants).  If you want to know more, read the series, it is well worth it!

Now, my opinion on The Summoner Series.  Personally, I love the series so much. In fact, The Summoner Series is one of my favorite book series of all time.  One thing that I especially love is how descriptive the author is during action/fighting scenes.  During these scenes, the author uses words that make the writing easier to imagine.  However, there is only one thing that I kind of dislike about the series, the cliffhangers.  At the end of each book, the author leaves each book on a cliffhanger, but this does make me even more anxious for the next book to be released.  If I had to rate The Summoner Series, I give it five stars.

All in all, you should definitely read The Summoner Series.  From the amazing storyline to the very descriptive action scenes, The Summoner Series is a great book series to read.  The occasional cliffhangers will have you dying to read more.  So, if you are looking for a great read, you should check out The Summoner Series, by Taran Matharu.

Major McDowell Modifications


 Every school has different   characteristics that make it unique.  For example, a school may have a   dress code that is very strict and conservative, while another school might allow clothes like tank tops to be worn by students.  Some students vary on what they think is amazing and bad about their school.  So, what things would be great changes/improvements for McDowell Exchange School? 

Well, there are multiple improvements that could be made at McDowell, one of them being to change the school lunch menu completely.  The school lunch at McDowell lacks the quality and flavor of even a mediocre meal.  This results in a lot of students packing their lunch, which provides the school with receiving less “income” from lunch.  One thing that the school could do to increase lunch income, is to buy fresh ingredients or even grow their own food from a garden (Instead of food that is in the freezer and/or expired).  This way, the school would receive more income, and in return the students would be getting an excellent meal.

Secondly, McDowell could improve by creating a better class selection.  At McDowell, there is a small and limited amount of classes that a student can take.  There are other middle schools that offer far more classes to their students than what McDowell does.  If McDowell had more classes for students to take, maybe students would find school more enjoyable and fun.  McDowell should also allow for students to choose more electives, rather than just band, choir, and guided study.  With the responsibility of a student choosing their own classes, a student could also put themselves in classes suited for their needs. These changes, could allow for students at McDowell to have a better overall school experience.

Finally, McDowell could raise their band fund, to make school better.  The band at McDowell, only has a small and limited amount of money that they receive.  As a result, the band is not capable of achieving more.  For example, if the band fund was increased, the band could buy better and more equipment for their students.  This would make the band sound and look better.  Also, if the band fund was increased, the band would be able to go more places and get more experience.  If the band had more money to travel, the students would be able to compete with the result of learning that new knowledge that would help them in high school.  With a bigger band fund, McDowell students would have more fun and learn that necessary knowledge that they would need for a later date.

All in all, McDowell Exchange School would be better with a few changes.  These changes could make school fun for students who do not find school enjoyable.  That would need to: change their lunch menu, have a better class selection, and add more money to the band fund.  As a result, McDowell would be a better school overall if they made these improvements.  So, what improvements would make your school better?
