    Ruthie Mizrahi has only just arrived in America from Cuba, and she's already fitting in among her classmates. She's also the best at hopscotch in her neighborhood. Even though she misses Cuba, she's embracing life in America, and she's a friend to everyone. But then she brakes her leg in a tragic car accident, and she's confined to her bed. But even though Ruthie is stuck in a body cast in bed, she still looks on the bright side of things. She makes new friends while stuck in bed, and spends her most of her time reading and painting, things she almost never did before the accident. Ruthie is healing, physically and emotionally. This book is really touching, and you'll sympathize with Ruthie the whole way. I really love how Ruthie is such a fighter, and how she's not going to let anyone boss her around. I think the lesson in this story is to embrace your fears, because Ruthie really has to be brave when she learns how to walk with the leg she broke in the accident. Ruthie also shows you that you to forgive, and to hope against all odds. Enjoy this amazing story!

    Three Times Lucky was not a book that I enjoyed. The basic plot was a 12-year old trying to solving several murders and kidnapping cases. There are few books that I can't finish, or only finish because of obligation. Three Times Lucky was one of these books. Although the plot idea was interesting, and the writing style was very good, I think that the concept could have been executed differently. This is definitely a book for young adults, not younger kids. There were many gory scenes, and hair-raising experiences. It was basically a murder mystery. Overall, I do not suggest this book. However, every person has the right to their own opinion.

    The Penderwicks was a very interesting book. It is not the type of material I usually read, but I still loved it. Usually I read books about adventure, mystery, magic, etc. This story was more classical, and in earlier times. The Penderwicks was about a family of four girls who go on vacation for three weeks and meet a boy, who needs help. He is about to be sent off to military school, and his mother is being married to a horrid man. Nothing is going his way, and the Penderwicks decide to help. There isn't really breath-taking scenes, and it is not an action-packed book. However I recommend this book to everyone. Especially those who love classics such as Little Women and the Secret Garden.

    I think this book was very well-written. Personally, this was not my favorite book. But that is because I do not really like to read comics. I know however, that many people do. Those that do enjoy anime, I think will like this book. It is original, and very funny. many jokes are made. There is no real plot line to this book, there is not a goal that is met. it is mostly just connected jokes. I recommend this book to younger children, and to cartoon and anime fans.

    Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor wasn't that great of a book. The plot was predictable, and you knew what was going to happen next, even if you didn't know exactly how. I think that nobody would like this book. For teenagers and above this book would be boring. For younger kids, I think they would have a hard time following the story. It is very complex, and has many technical terms. Of course, some people who really enjoy robotics and other science topics, they may like this book. It is about young Frank Einstein, who builds two self-learning robots for his local science fair, to win the money to save his grandpa's shop. But then his rival shows up-and things start going on. Will Frank win? Will he save his grandpa's shop? What will happen next?

    The Giver is a dystopian book, focusing on Jonas. Jonas lives in a world without color, without feelings, without imperfection and sickness. Until Jonas has his ceremony of 12(basically a variation of graduation) that is, and recieves his job: Reciever of Memory. He is the new apprentice of the Giver, a mysterious and recluse old man. Soon Jonas begins to see color and things he never realized. He learns what they are being protected from-and what they are missing. He learns terrible secrets of his community. But what can he do about it? Will the unseen tyranny be revealed to those around him? I recommend this book for dystopian and fantasy lovers, for middle grade and up. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
