Honestly, I never really got into this book and I thought it was pretty pointless overall. It was in no way interesting, hard, or thought provoking. It really made me realize how I’m in 8 grade and I'm not a little kid anymore. Also, reading this book along with “Mindset”, I really started to realize how I took the easy way out by not reading a real classic. “Crossed” had a Lexile of around 650, whereas my Lexile is around 1,200.

From my perspective, the mind always seemed like a complicated and intricate puzzle. It was a puzzle that I had no desire to evaluate or even begin to learn more about. It was something that I had just accepted because I believed it was above my understanding and much too complex. However, I never thought to look at just one small piece of the puzzle. If I could just focus on one little section, maybe I could increase my overall knowledge of the mind. By reading the book, Mindset by Carol S. Dweck, I was given the opportunity to be able to specialize on one very crucial part of our mind. A part that deals with how we view ourselves and others, our communication, and the reasoning behind our actions. This is called our mindset. While reading
