    Ever had to work with someone that didn’t quite work with you? In this book, we meet Evelyn, a girl in eighth grade, who has just been disqualified from a robotics contest she so badly wanted to win, while still struggling over her best friend moving away. And Allie, an artist who is now in the principal’s office for the fifth time due to an anger outburst. If Allie gets kicked out of another class, she will be sent to Sunrise Junior High, a school for flunk-outs. Allie gets placed in Robotics for a last chance elective, while Evelyn is learning that she has to let her other team members work on stuff, she can’t do it alone. Only problem is, Evelyn’s teammates keep slacking off, and Allie keeps going to hide and draw. When news comes out that their Robotics class may be shut down due to lack of students, it becomes clear that these two are going to learn how to work together if they ever want to do well at this competition! Overall, not my favorite book, but not bad either. I recommend this book for ages 12 and up.

    kruzingwithk9s's book review was featured in The Swallowtail Legacy 1: Wreck at Ada's Reef.
    Have you ever read or heard something and said to yourself, “Something isn’t right here. There’s more to the story.” That’s how Lark felt after reading a newspaper article on Swallowtail Island, where she and her sister, Pip, have a summer house that their mom left them after she died. Going to the island with Thomas, her stepdad (who loves family photos just a little too much), and her stepbrothers, she finds a newspaper article telling of a 75 year old tale of an accidental death. She is later hired to investigate the incident for a book as a favor for a friend of her late mother. Digging deeper, there is more to the story than meets the eye. Can Lark find the missing piece of the story before it affects a new friend of hers? This thrilling mystery will leave you on the edge of your seat! I would recommend this to someone 12-15.

    kruzingwithk9s's book review was featured in Game On! (Star Striker).
    Ah, soccer tryouts: the time of year where you do your best to impress the coach and get on the team. However, there is always at least one person who doesn’t make it. And Albert was that person. Dejected, as he heads home to take care of his grandma, he gets beamed up into an alien spaceship! There he meets Unit B who tells him about Johka. It is an alien version of soccer, and they want him on their team! Although, once Albert signs up and starts training, there are multiple attempts on his life. Who would do this? Why? I really liked this book! I would recommend this book to someone who loves soccer and sci-fi.
