The View from Saturday

Author: E. L. Konigsburg
Reviewer's Age: Grade 9

The View from Saturday is an exciting book that teaches many lessons. It’s about how several students from the same school are in an educational competition. Not only are they learning more knowledge wise, but are learning more about each other. However, all of the students are somehow related. Each Saturday they have a tea party and quiz each other and their teacher also helps them prepare by having practices. The book is taken from a different perspective because with each chapter the narrator changes. That way, you can see each person’s feelings and emotions. The View from Saturday is a short novel, but reveals many hidden themes throughout the book. If you’re looking for a short, but thorough book The View from Saturday may be what you’re looking for.
