    The very popular I Survived books are both fascinating and amazing because they happened to real people. The newest book ,Tornado Terror ,does not disappoint. Both the Tri-State and the Joplin Tornado stories grabbed me and would not let me go until I finished them and made me glad that I wasn't there for them. All in all this was a great book that I would recommend to third to fifth graders.

    llpanda's book review was featured in The Forgetting.
    What if everyone forgot who they were and you were the only one who remembered. Every twelve years everyone in Canaan forgets everything about themselves and each other. The only way to remember is their books tied to their wrists that they must write the truth in each day, but Nadia has a secret... she can remember. She remembers the Forgetting when her father tore the pages about her mother and sisters from his book and left them, she remembers hitting the glassblower's son Grant, and she remembers the horrible things that happen after all the Forgettings. But this time Nadia is going to come clean to her family about her memory. She's going to find a place where they can all live together away from the Forgetting so she goes over the forbidden wall. But time for Nadia is running out ,the Forgetting is coming closer and closer. Can she find somewhere safe in time? This is an amazing book! I recommend it to grades seventh and up.

    snicker9's book review was featured in Tornado Terror (I Survived True Stories #3): True Tornado Survival Stories and Amazing Facts from History and Today.
    Lauren Tarshis has written many thrilling books, the most famous being her historical fiction series, I Survived. These past few years I have enjoyed reading Lauren's works, and the way she was able to portray the main character in these national disasters. So I was very excited when I got my hands on a copy of this book, Tornado Terror. I was interested to see how Lauren would tie a story and facts together. This is a nonfiction book, but Lauren had just the right combination of pure facts and narrative that would enthrall any reader. Inside book, both tornadoes featured, the Tri-State Tornado of 1925 and the Joplin Tornado of 2011 have a short story of a young person-just as she writes in the fiction series. The interesting thing about these stories, is that they are actually based on a real person and that person's experiences. It isn't a complete work of fiction narrative. But there was more than just stories. There were many pictures, and tidbits about "normal" life during that time period. There were also specific facts about both tornadoes, and tornadoes in general. I also enjoyed reading about what storm chasers are, and famous tornado scientists. I recommend this book for elementary and middle school, but it would also interest some younger highschoolers. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    snicker9's book review was featured in Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods: A Novel.
    Warren the 13th is back! In this sequel that takes place shortly after the first book, Warren has only recently learned that hotel is a walking one! He along with his best friends Petula and Sketchy, along with a rag-tag group of adults have been cruising around the country, picking up well to-do guests along the way. Where his life previously was full of fear and disappointment, now Warren has a life filled with adventure and friendship. His biggest concern is the critics. Nonetheless, things seem to be going smoothly. That is until the Warren(the hotel's name) crashes to the ground, he loses all his guests, and then is kidnapped by a mimic. The mimic replicates Warrens image, and calls himself Worrin. Worrin soon takes over the hotel with the intent to sell it to the Witch Queen, Calvina, and Warren is forced to chase the Warren on foot. Unfortunately for Warren, he is smack dab in the middle of the Malwoods-which is filled to the brim with witches and many more startling creatures. Will Warren survive on his own? Will he save his hotel? Will his friends realize that Worrin is an impostor? This book is filled with danger, and twists in every chapter. Although since this is an AR book not all the pictures were inserted yet, the images that were included were wonderful and added to the story tremendously. I really liked how Tania del Rio continued Warren's story. I felt as if I was really entwined in the story, and just enough backstory was added so that it could be understand even without reading the first book. I recommend this book for elementary and middle grade aged kids. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book as part of the Advance Review Club.

    this book is amazing!!! This book is like a continuation of Aladdin and connects Aladdin and Cinderella. This book is an interesting book that most people would not even consider reading at first because the cover is not very appealing, but it is really a great book.
