Book reviews by a teacher-librarian.
These are my personal views.

another great post by a Silver Birch reader
is an amazing book by Andreas Schroeder. There are eight true stories of people
deceiving others mostly for money. I highly recommend this book for everyone.
of the stories is about a broadcast that had been played on the radio and
convinced people that Martians (aliens from Mars) are invading the world.
Little did the people know this was just a play and the whole crisis was
unnecessary! People freaked out and some went to the hospital because of heart
attacks and others armed themselves and shot anything that looked like Martians
for example, clouds or humans. The
people were just unaware that the whole thing was fake. After the havoc, Orson
Wells said he was only making a good play and nothing was his fault.
personally more interested in fantasy and fiction books although I loved this
book because it was so interesting. There was a lot of detail and the idea of
the book made it very attention grabbing. Now I will read non-fiction more
often because Duped got me hooked into it.
