The book “word nerd” has a connection to the world because there are a lot of kids who suffer of bully because maybe they are Nerds” but it doesn’t really matter if they are or not they have to be treated as normal people because they are normal people just like everyone and because like Ambrose everyone had said or did something that they will probably regret in the future or laugh about .This book has a personal connection to me because it brings back memories of some silly things that i did in the past and some that i might regret now and that as Ambrose i didn’t like school because kids annoyed me so i rather stayed home than attend to school but this book had made me think of things in a different perspective like everything happens for  a good reason after all for example Ambrose moved often and that was a good thing because he found a great friend that shared good moments with him.

I will recommend this book  to all kind of people because it's really interesting even though the cover doesn’t seen like it ,it really is and after you read it ,it keeps on getting more and more interesting and you don’t want to stop reading it  , also it's  a really good story  that some may relate to ,in many different ways or with the different characters .My opinion of this book is that it was really good even though at first i didn't want to read it ,but then i didn’t want to stop reading and i learned not to judge people by their appearances because some characters of this book were judged by the way they looked and just because they had a dark past doesn’t mean you still a bad person , you have to learn to give others an opportunity.
