You Are Awesome

Year 8 Literary Canon – Book 1 (year 2)

I really like the book You Are Awesome, and it has really inspired me and I am sure can inspire others. It is very good at making you want to take risks and go out of your comfort zone. I really wish I had read this book sooner.

This books gives examples of normal people who turn out to be famous, for example, Steve Jobs (the founder of Apple) and J.K. Rowling (author). Can you believe that twelve people turned down Harry Potter? I can’t.

When I read this book, I felt confident in myself so I went and auditioned for the school play. I recommend this book to people in Year 5 upwards. This book teaches you to tell yourself…..You Are Awesome!
