    avanumbereight's book review was featured in The Marvels.
    The Marvels is a book about a young boy, Billy Marvel, surviving in a shipwreck. Later on, he finds work in a theater with many generations of a family of actors. Joseph Jervis runs away form boarding school in 1990 and comes to dark and snowy London looking for Link, his dog, and his uncle. I made a connection to this book of another book I did a review on, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. I read this book after reading the Invention of Hugo Cabret and I am not sure what book I love more. The author's way of writing these books is the way that gets me excited to pick up another book written by him and start reading it. I rated this book four stars, because it got confusing when they switched from Billy to Joseph but later on it started to come together.

    avanumbereightliked a comment in Silverwing.
    Silverwing brought me through a flood of adventures! I truly couldn't put the book down! It is about Shade, the runt of his colony and is so small that he gets bullied for it. Then, one day, the colony goes on the yearly trip to go mate with the males and have babies. But, not two days have gone by and a storm approaches and the Shade is whisked away from his mother. He is very determined to go and find his colony before winter hits and reunite with his mom. Along the way, he meets friends, unexpected enemies, and unexpected allies helping him find his way. Does Shade have the strength in his tiny body to make it all the way? Will he find his colony in time? If so, are they at the destination already? This was truly a great read and I loved the leveled adventures and the moral of the story (I'll let you figure that out yourself!). I connected with the book because Shade and I are very small for age. I would recommend this book to 5th and 6th graders. The reason I gave this book a 5-star rating is because it was an action-packed book and the author gave great detail, as if you were apart of the entire book! What fascinates me the most is that the author chose bats as the main character, which is absolutely a great idea.

    avanumbereight's book review was featured in The Search for WondLa.
    Besteel, a creature that destroyed Eva Nine's sanctuary, shows up at certain times to hurt Eva and her friends. Eva Nine is forced to leave Muthur and she saved two creatures, Otto and Rovendor Kitt. She faces obstacles and many journeys trying to find a human like her. Eva has never seen a human, only in shows and movies. She finds a cardboard paper that reads "Wond" and "La". I made a connection to this book, because Eva Nine is eager to find a human species like her. This reminds me of trying to find someone like me to fit in with and be friends with. I rated this book a five star, because I loved following Eva Nine on her journey to find someone like her. I also loved to see Eva make friends along the way. I would recommend this book to my sister, because I feel she would be the only person that I know to give the book a shot at reading.

    Hugo has to keep watch of the tower and adjust the time every few hours. He wants to see if Hugo's father left him a message, so he tries to fix it by stealing parts of from a toy shop and putting it inside. He discovers many things and goes through a whole journey. He does not give up. I connected to this book, because this reminds me of "The Marvels" because it was made by the same author and had the same writing style. I rate this book four stars, because the book was a little confusing at some parts and made sense later on. I would recommend this book to most of my friends because this seems like the type of book they would take time to read.
