Yes, I'm an idiot for not asking the teacher, but I currently have 3000 words. How much longer should it be? Google wasn't helpful, by the way.

I would email your teacher and find out, it's the best idea I can think of!
Or ask a teacher (Solorien!)

Ask Solorien than! But there should be a website for your school and a email that is for all your teachers and such?

Yes, but it's not updated and I send it to a teacher that worked there 2 years ago. x.x

I'd say that it depends on all that the assignment requires. In my experience, I've had to do many different book reports of varying lengths, all depending on the type of book report, the length of the book, the genre, or the teacher's preference. When exactly is the assignment due? If it isn't tomorrow, then I'd recommend doing the length you think is right, then asking the teacher when you get back. If it's actually due tomorrow... then write as much as you can. Most teachers love it when you go above and beyond, and I doubt they would grade you down for writing too much.

Well, like Cade said (or not) it really depend on the book you were reading. If it was a Dystopia theme book, I would suggest around 5-6 pages with the font size 12-13. It would really help if you could show us what you got so far and maybe blur it so that we can't read it and with the title of the book.

Okay, I'll just babble on and on.

If its like a essay it should be five paragraphs, don't really think having a specific amount of words matters unless your teacher specifically asked for it since you're just in 9th grade.

5 paragraphs is way to little , you need at least 10-15 depending on the subject r 3-5 pages.

Hmmm not necessarily. Remember, quality over quantity.

Yeah you're right, didn't read her question clearly. Taught she was talking about like an essay. But yeah should be around 3-5.
