I don't like the Magnus Chase books as much. The Asgard gods aren't as well known and the story line was hard to follow. It feels like Rick Riordan is stretching out his series/stories just to make more money. I don't recommend this book
The Giver is an amazing book about a boy who lives in a supposedly Utopian society. As adjusts to his role as the giver, he discovers many flaws in society and the way life is lived. I'm reading this with my class right now. It is a must read!
Wonder is a lovely book about a boy who is what we call "ugly". He faces many challenges at his first year in middle school, but also makes many new friends. This is an amazing book that is beautifully written
