    Meg Murray is a high school student. Although she loves doing math, most people believe she's a dunce, and she is constantly in the trouble with her teachers and the principal. She is also very protective of her little brother Charles Wallace. Charles Wallace is extremely smart, although as Meg he is often misjudged-mostly because he only speaks around his family. And even though he is only five years old, he speaks in full sentences, and can understand almost anybody without them speaking. Their parents are both scientists-but their father has been missing for almost two years on a mysterious assignment. One night Meg, Charles Wallace and their mother are having a midnight snack when a stranger appears at their door. A stranger who turns out to be magical. Soon after Meg, Charles Wallace and their new friend Calvin go on a crazy adventure through space and time with a trio of magical beings: Mrs. Whatist, Mrs. Which, and Mrs. Who. Will they be able to band together, and defeat these forces of evil as well as find their missing father? The first time I read this book was several years ago, and I couldn't really understand it so I didn't enjoy it. This time around I'm older(and hopefully wiser), and I really loved it! I recommend this book for middle and high-schoolers (and adults). I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    Cat(short for Catrina) is not happy that she and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California. But there's little she can do about it. The reason they are moving is because Cat's little sister, Maya, is sick. But of course their new town, Bahia de la Luna is more than "ordinary". A neighbor boy, Carlos, tells the sisters that there are ghosts in the town. Cat wants nothing to do with the ghosts, but Cat is dying to meet one. As Dia de la Muerta approaches, Cat must come to face with her fears. Maya has Cystic Fibrosis. I like how Raina emphasized the sickness, but even more so how Maya doesn't let her illness get her down. I also think it shows how much Cat loves her little sister, as she is always looking out for her. There is such a strong bond between the sisters. I recommend this book for Raina Telgemeier fans, and elementary kids who enjoy graphic novel. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    jeffdaboss's book review was featured in The Thing About Jellyfish.
    Suzy isn't the girl who is the star athlete, the popular stylist, or the class brain. She's the girl who is in the back of the class with her head down. Suzy used to be gently pushed by her best friend into fun activities, but ever since she drowned, Suzy pushed herself into the dark. She gave up speaking to the world, and pursued a passion that surrounded her thoughts with jellyfish. Jellyfish became her sole interest, and nothing captured her attention better than jellyfish. In this thought-provoking novel, you follow the thoughts of a depressed, seventh-grade loner with a bad family situation. I found the book to be amazing and really immersed me in the world of jellyfish.

    Jonah is an 11 year old kid in a community where there is no pain of any kind, but no love either. The community he lives in forces him to take a shot and pill every day to avoid color coming through his eyes and feelings coming from his heart. Once he turns 12, he is assigned a job like everyone else in his age group. He is assigned as the highly-esteemed Receiver of Memories. The Receiver of Memories is a job where a very special candidate must be transferred memories of the past from the previous Receiver. While training with the Receiver (who asks Jonah to call him the Giver), Jonah learns of colors, holidays, weather, happiness, pain, and so much more. He learns why his society excludes as many choices as possible from its residents. Using his knowledge and the help of the Giver, he takes a special baby named Gabriel to escape the community and have a better life. At the time this novel was written, Lois Lowry had unintentionally started an amazing quartet of books that become interwoven. This book is great, but reading the entire series will make your day, and you'll see the future that Jonah made for himself and Gabriel.

    This book is sort of simple nonsense with a partial plot. It is an easy read and very creative and imaginative, but there isn't much of a story line. It's about Andy and Terry, two kids who live in a 13 story treehouse. There are pools, labs, marshmallow machines, bowling alleys, and more. Andy is the focused author and Terry is the playful artist. They have an animal-loving friend named Jill and a boss expecting their latest book named Mr. Big Nose. They rush to finish the book before they're fired, but they keep getting distracted. This book is OK, but I feel it is better for younger kids.

    jeffdaboss's book review was featured in Old School (Diary of a Wimpy Kid).
    Practically everyone knows about Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It's just that good of a book. So when the tenth book came out, I was ecstatic. Hence the title Old School, the book starts of with Greg wondering about the past and the future, and how bad things were and will probably be now. Later, he discusses his family's roaming/ walking pet pig, his homework buddy doing his homework, and his brother's adventures during his first job. He talks about how his dad is extremely strict with him while his grandfather (who throws a party for the 50 women he's dating online) is staying with them. Greg, who messes up the family car, goes on a school field trip to escape his father's wrath. But the field trip is a completely funny mess! Jeff Kinney is still awesome and funny!
