Chew On This is a great book that addresses our nation's problem's about obesity, along with having some fun facts about the famous fast food joints we have all come to know. It's by the same author who wrote Fast Food Nation, the highly acclaimed New York Times Best-Seller. Although this was a great book, it also had lots of disgusting facts about what we eat, which really affected how you make your decisions when going to places like McDonald's. For example, one chicken nugget can be made from the meat of hundreds of different animals. It's a must read; I highly recommend this book.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a timeless feat of human nature in writing. It quickly became my new favorite book, and I couldn't recommend anything more. Most people I talk to have heard of it, but not necessarily read it, or not necessarily read it in a long time. Sometimes you enjoy it more if you read it outside of school, when it's not assigned reading. This book is definitely a 5/5, without a doubt, and the quicker you can get your hands on a copy of this classic novel, the better.
