One game that I really love is Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. I love the game because there are a lot of game types. You can go online and play against your friends. You can play battle, which is when you have three balloons. You can also play a versus race where you're…

I would only recommend this book to people who look for messages in the story while reading, because the author complicates the story so that the theme is not very clear.
