This book made me think more about being Jewish.

I liked the story line of this book, and some other stuff, blah,blah,blah, but something shocking happens! :( I still like the book though, so i would like a sequel to this book :)

I thought this book was an excellent sequel to “Twerp”. It really taught you a lot about your own beliefs and how to find them. It was a very sweet story even though it had a sad ending but it was really well written! I would definitely recommend it especially for people about to have their bar/bat mitzvahs. It’s a really touching story and I really liked it!

“Finding The Worm” was a fantastic and bittersweet book. It had all the elements a book with a message should have: a sad twist, good friends, and obviously, a message. I think this book will speak to all of us kids out there who may take some things for granted. We may be ungrateful sometimes, and I think that it’s good to have a reminder that the thing that we’re looking at might start to go away. We have so many things that we think will last forever and won’t go wrong that we forget that eventually it might not be there.

I think that “Finding The Worm” will hopefully teach us all a lesson. Whatever we think we have, we should always make the best of it.
