Hundred Percent is about a girl named Tink. Tink has a friend that Tink thinks is really pretty, but Tink thinks that she, herself, isn’t pretty. During the school year Tink really wants to change and be like her friend, but lots of events happen and at the end of the school year she decides to be herself.
This book has a great message about being yourself. You shouldn’t care about what other people think.It wasn’t very easy for Tink to not care about what other people think because at the time all the girls in her class were skinny, wore make-up, and wore dresses and skirts. Tink’s hair was a mess and she didn’t think she was skinny, but she wasn’t fat. Before she didn’t really like herself, but at the end she learns to love yourself. Hopefully everyone who reads this book will see the message in the book.
My favorite character is Bushwhack. I like him because he is himself. Bushwhack is someone at Tinks school who makes up jokes and is Tink’s friend. He is a very important character in the book and Tink and Bushwhack have a great relationship. My second favorite character is Tink because she is independent.
I really enjoyed reading this book. If you read this book I hope you will too. The author really knows how it feels to be in middle school. She really seems to feel Tink’s feelings.
This is a fourth-sixth grade book because it has some harder words for third graders and is a medium sized book.
I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms.
