I was in 6th grade and I always hated reading. I was in class sitting next to a girl reading a book and I asked her why she read all the time. She told me it was a way for her to explore new worlds and to help her have a better understanding of people around her in the real world. I listened to all her reasonings and she recommended a book, unfortunately I don't remember the title, but I remember every the main characters as if I was there with them in those moments of danger, or happiness. My friends name was Jessie and I'm glad she recommended me to read. Thanks to her, I read almost every day.
