Responses gathered by Christine Monette, senior, Rosary High School.

*

"Seventeen magazine. It's really interesting, with lots of good articles."

Ana Tancic, 14, freshman, Canyon

*

" 'The Firm' (by John Grisham). It's so complex that you can read it continuously and it seems different each time."

Terri Marhoff, 14, freshman, Villa Park

*

" 'The Glass Menagerie,' by Tennessee Williams, a play that deals with a crippled child, an overbearing mom and a typical young man, and the strife to make it in the early '40s."

Kevin Panella, 17, senior, Esperanza

*

"A Sports Illustrated magazine. I did more looking at the pictures than I did reading, though."

John French, 16, senior, Brea Olinda

*

"I read the wave report before I went to the beach today. It helps to know how big the waves are before you go to the beach."

Jeremy Lefever, 15, sophomore, Costa Mesa

*

"Mustang Car magazine. It's a good magazine, and I recommend it."

Greg Valdez, 17, senior, Brea Olinda

*

" 'The Stand' (by Stephen King)--excellent. It is not as long as it appears; it is actually very fast-paced. It was descriptive and believable, and that was the best part of all. Truly scary."

Jhanelle Heimann, 16, senior, Rosary

*

" 'The Firm' (John Grisham). Very good, better than the movie. The ending was a little stupid, but it was a gripping page-turner."

Reed Bryson, 17, senior, El Dorado

*

"I read the T.V. Guide to see what's on at 8 o'clock."

Britt Pugh, 14, freshman, Foothill

*

"I read the Carl's Jr. menu at Newport Beach."

Amanda Nelson,13, freshman, Foothill

*

"The sports page."

Brian Rober, 18, senior, Brea Olinda

*

"I enjoyed 'Romeo and Juliet,' and I would recommend it because, even though Shakespeare wrote it in the late 1500s, the people of our day can understand it because of the topic."

Vianne Patterson, 15, sophomore, Katella

*

"I read 'Lord of the Flies' (by William Golding). It was a pretty cool deal. I recommend it, but if you see the movie, see the updated one."

Shannon Hunter, 16, junior, Katella

*

"I guess I enjoyed 'Great Expectations' (by Charles Dickens), but I didn't really like the ending or the story too much. It was OK to read once, but I wouldn't read it again."

Erika Boers, 15, sophomore, Katella

*

"Well, I liked reading 'Great Expectations.' It made me feel like I could do anything."

Jamie Sterling, 15, sophomore, Katella

*

"I read the temperature of water at the beach so I could use the information with my surfing."

Chris Johnson, 14, freshman, Foothill

*

"I read the Bible and the Book of Promises."

Melinda Reyes, 14, freshman, Foothill

*

"I read the back of a bag of Blue Bell potato chips."

Sarah Wallace, 14, freshman, Foothill

*

"The last thing that I read was the Bible, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone."

Cristina Hernandez, 13, freshman, Foothill
