    I read this book and it was really good. I liked that it was about a girl who grew up in not so good circumstances, but still rose above it. She teaches others about the real world and how they are privileged. She is strong, smart, and an inspiration. I would recommend this to anyone.

    I wrote two reviews last night/this morning, and I have just checked to see their status, but when I went to look it was blank as if I hadn't written any reviews even though I had. I would like to know if there was something wrong with my review and if that was the reason why it was not counted and erased?

    This was an incredible book, a recommendation from a friend. The plot and idea of the book were very interesting. The general idea was that children were taken away to the School for Good and Evil, and there, they would be trained to be villains/antagonists or superhero/protagonist. I found this as a unique but enjoyable idea that made to be a stable foundation for the rest of the book. The plot twists that were thrown in throughout the book kept me captivated. I enjoyed the book greatly, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in starting a book that they won't be able to put down until the last page.

    I read this book and it was exciting and amazing. It was very interesting concept because children are kidnapped so that they can be trained into heroes and villains. I wonder what would happen to me if I was a child in this book that got kidnapped. I am excited for the second book. Recommend it for anyone that likes fantasy!

    While many children have childhoods built upon the foundation of their favorite movies and cartoons, favorite games and amusement parks, etc, mine was built on books. Picture books, pop-up books, chapter books. Books, in general, were my obsession, and more specifically, the Boxcar Children. Genuinely, this was one of my favorites as a child. The idea that these brave orphans had just each other to guide themselves through life was an entirely captivating and revolutionary idea from my seven-year-old perspective. Living in an abandoned boxcar was a very creative and interesting idea that I find incredibly different even at my age looking back. The orphans were all beautifully created and their personalities define each of them as great people with their unique flaws and beauties. As the Boxcar Children was a series, there was a different plot in each book, but each was just as good as the previous with brilliant plotlines that had younger me entertained for the entire book and even hours after, still processing the information. A highly recommended series from current me recalling all the past memories and from younger me still fangirling internally.

    candyexpress's book review was featured in Dork Diaries 1: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life.
    Dork Diaries has been another staple book series as a child. The humor in this book, and the series in general, never failed to amuse me. The main character, Nikki, was genuinely one of the most lovable characters ever to be created is extremely relatable and exciting to follow around in her journey of middle school. Assisting characters like her friends, her parents and her sister (BRIANNA IS THE CUTEST) were also nicely developed with depth, personality, and serve a purpose in moving the story forward. Plotlines were extremely adorable and fit the humorous vibes the book radiates with. The drawings are also applaudable. I still remember spending hours trying to recreate the characters on my own. It never worked, but the drawings never failed to captivate me with their incredible details. Highly recommend for a good laugh.

    candyexpress's book review was featured in Bad Kitty.
    Such a cute easy book to read and understand (as well as the rest of the series). The plotline is very simple and easy to understand and follow without any struggle as the author most likely intended. However, the simplicity of the concept does not take away from the book overall, actually. It instead adds to the personality of the book and makes it very humorous. Bad Kitty's personality is awfully petty but awfully amusing and adorable. The drawings in the books are incredible as well. Great skill is behind every word of narration and dialogue as well as every doodle on each page.

    candyexpress's book review was featured in The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles, Book 1).
    Rick Riordan is one of those authors that just never disappoint. The Red Pyramid was an incredible read for me. At first, I was slightly hesitant in starting because I was not used to the realm of Egyptian gods and goddesses. I preferred my little bubble of Greek gods and goddesses that Rick Riordan had built for me when he had written the Percy Jackson series. However, I gave it a try and I do not regret it at all. The Red Pyramid had a brilliant amount of description. The number of scenes where I could straight up picture where everyone was and have a mental film running through my mind as I read was endless. Rick Riordan was able to paint a vibrant picture for me as the reader as I went from one page to the next. The characters were all nicely developed with strong personalities and characteristics contributing a lot to the plotline (which may I add was genius). Of course like all the books Riordan has ever written, the humor was not lacking whatsoever. I enjoyed the thrill I experienced while reading this book along with the knowledge I gained about the Egyptian gods and goddesses.
