2nd Quarter Outside Reading Approval

*The name of the book i chose is Eagle Blue, by Michael D'Orso.

*Eagle Blue was published in 2006.

*This book is nonfiction.

*There are 323 pages.

*This book is sufficiently challenging for me, a high school sophomore, because as I was flipping through the pages, I found many vocab words that I did not recognize. This will be challenging because I will need to either use context clues or look words up in the dictionary in order to understand the meaning of the book. Also, it seems like there are a lot of details in this book, which means I will have to pay extra attention to what is going on, especially since it is a fairly long book.

*I chose this book because generally I like books that have to do with sports, and their achievements, and that is what this book is about. I also chose this book because it was on Mr. Hatten's list of recommended books, so I figured if he was recommending it, it must be a good read.
