Back of the Book
I think that other 8th grades would like to read YOLO by Sam Jones because it’s intriguing. In this book, the characters experiences are wild and out of the ordinary. No one would hopefully ever have the adventures that Emily, Ana, and Brandon have on a day road trip. But, it is really exciting to read about a crazy trip that has so much packed into one day. This book is a massive page turner and won’t let you stop.
