When I was a kid I didn't like to read. I didn't get a lot of accelerated readers point. When I was in 3rd grade I used to get in trouble that I didn’t read and I didn’t have enough points. When I was in 4th grade I wasn’t in the in the gate class for the first week and then after the first week the moved me up and pushed me because they knew I was smart. The first semester I didn’t read at all because I didn’t find a book that I was interested with, but then during winter break I picked up a book called The Series of Unfortunate Event. After a few pages I was obsessed with that book. I was reading and reading it because it was suspenseful. After winter break I took the test I got 9 out of 10. My 4th grade teacher was so happy with me because I was actually getting point and within one semester I read the whole series. I was on a race with my friend named Kelly to see who could finish the series faster. But it was a tie because we finished it on the same day. Then I started to read the Percy Jackson series and I also loved that series. Till this day my 4th grade teacher always brings up how I didn’t like reading to I was reading all the time. With determination you can do anything as long you like what you are doing.
