The Only Pirate at the Party Paperback by Lindsey Stirling

Writing a review for a book that has had a profound impact on your life is a very daunting challenge, words seldom express the feeling of the heart and I fear that my words would muffle what I have to say. But a pirate never backs out of challenge that is what I have learnt in due course of time, reading this book.
THE ONLY PIRATE AT THE PARTY is a heartfelt memoir of the world renowned violinist Lindsey Stirling. Her life from a bubbly small girl in the suburbs to a rock-a-sock renegade international violinist is highlighted in the book. Filled with funny anecdotes and events, the book captures the unique persona of Lindsey as such.
Her life story is a source of inspiration to millions around the world. Through the course of the book we get to know Lindsey up close and personal. Detailing every triumph she has experienced till now, Lindsey shares stories of her humble yet charmed childhood, humorous adolescence, and life as a struggling musician, personal struggles with anorexia and finally, success as a world class entertainer.
I loved the way the book was written, there is a unique singular voice speaking to you that is charming and funny, that doesn’t bore you. I loved the chapter titles of the book; it certainly was enough to spark interest in reader to start a new chapter. One has to read it to believe it. I was particularly intrigued by everything in the book! (The most fascinating part of the book is definitely the title.)
Lindsey’s story of her struggles with anorexia really helped me fight my inner demons too. Personally I am a huge fan of Lindsey and her music and when I heard about her book being released I couldn’t control my excitement. The main reason why I bought this book was to know more about Lindsey and her life because she is the biggest inspiration in my life and I look up to her more than anyone else in the entire world.           
Her magnetizing story- at once remarkable and universal- is a testimony that there is no singular recipe for success, and despite what people might say, sometimes it’s okay to be the only pirate at the party.

The book "TEN SELECTED JEWELS FROM PANCHATANTRA" is a collection of ten stories originally wrote in sanskrit by Vishnu Sharma and retold in this book by 'SAVYA SACHI'  <K.N.C.MENON>.
The book has an eye catching front and as well as back cover because of which from the cover itself it can be told that it is a "childrens story book".
The stories are very good and interesting.
The first story"HARD WORK REAPS REWARDS" which has the moral "Without hard work,no one can achieve peace and prosperity in life." The second story pf a cunning barber.
Because of greed,he has been humilated in kings court.
The third story is the famous"MONKEY AND CROCODILE",which I could hear from my parents even before I went school.I like the story and its moral
"TIMELY ACTION SAVES LIFE".

Reader's Club Report

Today I was very glad to go for club period. I thought that we would have some extempore, the secondary section got to  do a wonderful activity. The name of the game was 'TRADE & SOLVE' . By hearing the name itself I thought of participate in it , but it was  for the secondary section .... all the time I have this problem of being a junior because I don't get the chance to play these games. Then after that It was our turn to do some activity.The name of the game was 'follow the directions'.By hearing it I was not that interested about the game. Then sir told us the rules to play the game.He gave us a paper on which  was drawn . There were four boxes on which something had been written.Sir told some questions. We gave back our papers and he discussed the answers. No one got full correct answers.By that time bell rang and we went back to class.... That was a nice day..! . hoping that you all will read it ....

THANK YOU ..
