  Grade 7 Reviews
  Finally by Wendy Mass

Review by: Karoline B.
Maine, Grade 7

Out of all the places one could land why did it have to be in a drainpipe? Rory thought this at the start of the book Finally by Wendy Mass. Roryís birthday is only a day away, the day when finally everything on her list starts to come true. But almost everything on her list has a down side to it. When Rory finds out that her school is having two famous actors come to create a movie in her school, every one in her school wants to be in it.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes realistic fiction. Itís the second book in a series and the book is told from a different characterís point of view than the previous book. There are a lot of weird things that happen to Rory that could happen to anyone in real life. Rory is turning twelve so itís easy for a middle schooler to relate to her feelings. Whenever Rory was trying to undo something, something else happened that made me want to turn the page. Also, Rory meets someone that seems to know more about her than she knows about herself and gives Rory a confusing prediction about her life. This creates a twist to the story that I didnít see coming. How did Rory fall into the drainpipe? What is on Roryís list? Read the book to find out.
