    I am a huge fan of the Lunch Lady graphic novels by author Jarrett J. Krosoczka, who wrote this book, Platypus Police Squad: The Ostrich Conspiracy. This book is part story and part drawings, so kids get a nice blend of both and that sometimes helps kids read more. I know I still really like havi...

    "Wonder" by R. J. Palacio tells the story of ten-year-old August. The boy was born with a face that horrifies most who look upon it. Over the years, he had countless surgeries, so he was home-schooled. Now, he's about to enter the fifth grade in a regular school. This story is told from his persp...

The Blood of Olympus

    I personally doubt that Rick would kill off any of the seven. He writes with his fans in mind, and he's also said that he won't kill off main characters. Now that Frank is praetor, it's unlikely that he'll die. However, it's highly likely that Reyna will either die or step down so that Hazel can ...

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

By Jeff Kinney

  • mysterystar
    *THIS IS MY OPINION* Meh, I give this book 3 stars. It's EXTREMELY unrealistic and pretty short, plus it had tons of useless side plots that didn't really need to be there. It is a kids book for 2nd - 5th grade and I'm in 6th, so I've moved on from these while younger kids still love them though,...

Divergent

    *SPOILERS* (I didn't know whether to review the book or the movie, so I just reviewed both.) So let's start with the characters. Well, Uriah was going to be introduced in Insurgent, and Al killed himself five minutes after he was introduced. Ugh. Edward wasn't in the movie, and of course, there...

A Light in the Attic

    Really? I thought the poet did a great job on the poems. And the illustrations aren't horrible, they're realistic and fun to look at. Also I don't know how you liked the poem about the girl who wanted a pony. That's just sad. But this is just my opinion.
