Code Talker Review

Good books need to have a strong, well-developed plot, a good theme, and dialogue to keep the reader interested. Code Talker by Joseph Bruchac is a perfect example. It has plenty of dialogue, a good plot, and a good theme, which makes Code Talker a great candidate to win the RC award.

This tells you that Ned and his other Navajos helped win WW2.   Though the message of all people are important and deserve respect is common it usually doesn’t show the theme of the book like those people in war and violence. What usually happens is they fight for the peoples rights for respect but not the other way around.   Code Talker is a unique book themed with a common theme but has a odd way too show it.   It is like no other book and is a reason why it should win the RC award. The plot of Code Talker is filled with a awesome theme but it is also very suspenseful and shows emotion.
The author in this story highly expresses the suspenseful part of Code Talker. Since Code Talker is a...
