Thumbs up!

This book made me think more about being Jewish.

Best Book PJ Our Way has to offer! If you have not read this book, you definitely should. This book taught me that I really have a great life and I should be thankful because some kids don't even have their parents with them and are are treated very badly. Definitely a great read!

a great book!!!

I loved this book!

This book made me think more about friendship.

This book is so sad! But I still love it. I cried at the end. This book is about the hardships chimney sweeps had to face, but also about the magic we find every day. For Nan, it was Charlie. If I could, I would give this book 1000000000000000000000 stars. It’s that good. Warning: this book is SAD!

Sweep is about an orphan girl who is treated really badly. It is set in London where she is a chimney sweep. It's a really dangerous job. This is a story about her survival - and it includes some magic. It's a dramatic, sad and hopeful story. I really recommend it. It gave me insight how life used to be for poor children. FIVE STARS!!!!
