Name: Margaret Zendzian
Grade/school: Sixth grade at Bluffton Middle School
Favorite reading spot: My room, but I'll read anywhere.
Book: "The Sixty-Eight Rooms," by Marianne Malone
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Yes, I would because it's full of magic. One of my friends named McKenzie really likes magic, and so do I. And I would really recommend it. We both like Harry Potter. ... It's full of fun and surprises.
I hear you have already read 31 books this summer. Why do you love reading so much? That's a hard question. I've just been reading all my life. My grandpa thinks it's because of him because when we moved from California to Hilton Head Island to live with my grandparents, he read to me every night. I would ask questions about the books, and I guess he sort of led me to my reading potential. I just really like reading.
