Book Review of Life After High School ..

A book review is an evaluation of a book's merits and weaknesses. Unlike a book report, a book review incorporates persuasion and analysis to show why someone should read the book, using specific examples to illustrate their points. High school book reviews can incorporate a brief summary of the book, as well as descriptions of its strengths and weak points. The conclusion can present an overall appraisal of the book. Because most college writing will involve analytical elements, evaluative assignments can prepare high school students for these future literary challenges.
