    Eleven-year old Pru is still dealing with the death of her father, a former Police agent, when she finds a mysterious card in her room, asking “Who is the unbelievable FIB?” She can’t resist a good mystery, so she teams up with the new kid at school, ABE, to figure out what’s going on. Then, a mysterious man named Mr. Fox asks for their help investigating the mythical being invading their town. That’s just the beginning, and soon they discover another world beneath their town, and realize they must find the eye of Odin before anybody else if they want to stop a war that could destroy both the worlds. I thought this was a good book! It has elements of mystery, and it fun to try and stay ahead of the plot. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy books like Rick Riordan’s, as it is about Norse mythology.

    This book seems really cool! I love action-filled stories, and this seems it's a suspense-filled adventure just waiting to be experienced. :D

    I love poptropica! I'm really excited to hear that it now has a story you can read (which is just as epic as playing a game), but it sounds even better because it's a graphic novel. I'd get to experience the parts of the game I could never get to. :D

    goofy127liked a comment in The Glass Castle (Thirteen).
    Avery is celebrating her 13th birthday. She and her brother are in the woods on the way home to their father when they are suddenly kidnapped. Avery is taken to a strange castle where a huge group of 13 year-olds are hidden, their presence unknown to the adults. The kids secretly run the castle, and have their own court system on the side of their castle. Many mysteries surround the castle, and the children hiding there. One of the secrets is that the siblings of the children are hidden, so the 13 year olds will stay in the castle. But the king is growing old and his new wife wants to produce an heir to the throne. But the king had a son 13 years ago by his first wife, and no one knows what happened to him. His new wife's solution is to rid the kingdom of all 13 year-olds. But Avery and her friends are ready to fight. Avery, Kate, Tuck, and Kendrick are in charge of the network of kidnapped children, determined to get back to their homes and families. But in every kingdom there are problems. And in this castle secrets are around every corner. Who can Avery trust? I liked in this book that there was a mystery around every corner, and many twists and turns. I liked that the plot was kind of a puzzle, and the authors kept you guessing. I also liked that there were little Bible verses, and lessons within the story. This is one of my favorite books ever! Let me just put it this way-I finished the book and then picked it up to read it all over again! This book has earned a place on my honorary bookshelf. I am dying to read the next one. The sooner the better Miss Trisha and Mr. Jerry! Fall 2016 seems like forever away! I recommend this book to fantasy lovers. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

She arrives in the royal castle, to live in secret with other teens as the staff. She befriends Kate, a mysterious girl who likes sewing. She also becomes enemies with Ilsa, because Ilsa thinks Avery is after her crush Tuck. The other teens are all orphans except Avery, and Avery also discovers that her mother, who abandoned her family, has a connection to the royals. With a new bratty queen on the way, Avery has a feeling that the queen is why they are imprisoned.

    This book was so unique in it's execution of a storyline that has been rehashed time and time again, and was a breath of fresh air for the troupe of having someone kidnapped, and therefore being forced to follow a set of rules, despite having a rebellion in the working. However, The Glass Castle produced original characters who could stand up for themselves, such as Avery, who was by far one of my favorite children's book female characters, partly because she seemed to not make the same mistakes that other characters have made that seem very obvious to the reader. Instead, she had a clear plan, and instead of being distracted by other obstacles, she focused on what she believed to be important, and didn't lose sight of her goal. I also absolutely loved the setting of the story, to be in a historical era with a school, as I'll probably never tire from boarding schools, especially ones set in the past! Overall, this was probably one of the best children's books that I have read, and I'm eagerly anticipating the next book in the series!

    goofy127's book review was featured in Code of Silence: Living a Lie Comes with a Price (Code of Silence Novel, A).
    He didn't do it. He didn't do it. Honest to God. He didn't do it. But then why is he hiding? Acting like a criminal himself? Cooper and his two friends watched as the men almost killed Frank - the owner of Frank'n'Steins, their favorite place to hang out. They watched them drain his life savings and remove the evidence. And they escaped - with some of the evidence. The criminals want that evidence back, but the cops want it as well. But now Cooper, Hiro and Gordy are bound by their Code of Silence to keep what they saw secret and lie to keep themselves and their families safe. However, the lies inflate and become bigger than they could have imagined when the police come to their school, looking for the mystery 8th grade witness that was spotted right after the incident. Hiro urges Cooper to break the Code and go to the police, but he can't convince himself to do it. The criminals were wearing cop-pants that night. One could be a dirty cop, and then his life would be over, literally. As Gordy struggles to keep their friendship together, Cooper comes up with more and more elaborate plans to keep themselves hidden and still offer what he has to know to the police. He is afraid, they all are. No, they are scared out of their wits - fearing for their lives. But in the final hour, Cooper is forced to face himself: who is he really protecting with the lies? Himself? Or the criminals? I think this is a great read. It's chock full of suspense, mystery, and twists at every corner. It's not as action-packed as I would have liked, especially in the beginning, but it really gets your heart rate up. It's also highly realistic which makes it a tad bit scarier. I think anybody fifth grade and up would enjoy it.

    This books sounds really interesting and I'd be delighted if I won it. It seems like on of my favorite types of books: mystery + adventure but not too sci-fi or techy. Plus the game mentioned in the books sounds really awesome (somebody do it for real!).
