My very first Book Review!!!!!

I am so pleased and excited to offer you, the Farmington community, our very first Teen Book Review!!!!!

Alex Aponte III submitted this review of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis:

"Metamorphosis is a short story by Kafka about a young man named Gregor who wakes up one day to find that he has transformed into a dung beetle. It goes throughout the week describing how his family discovers him and how they cope. More importantly it is told from Gregor's perspective giving us insight into how he comes to terms with his new strange situation.

Probably one of Kafka's best works it was published by close friends after his death, though he specifically left instructions to have his works destroyed. Thanks only to the innovative foresight of his collegues we are graced today with classics like Metamorphosis."

Thanks for the great review Alex! I look forward to posting more as the Teens start submitting them!
