Review
In this magical book, the main character Elizabeth has a new job at an unusual library. In the basement lies the Grimm collection, where the librarians lock "special" items. Enjoy this amazing book & I recommend it for middle schoolers.(6-8 grade)  Place a hold!

The Report Card

Review
The story presented in this book was very well-written, but I felt that the personality of the main character was very hard to relate to. Overall, the problem and the process that the main character went through to fix it was enjoyable.  The Report Card

Catching Fire was a great second book of The Hunger Games series. Katniss Everdeen has to yet again face the haunting arena, this time with more action and a lot of mystery up it's sleeve.   Place a hold!

Touching Spirit Bear
Author
Ben Mikaelson
Review
Ben Mikaelsen’s writing, in places, is evocative and a dead-on accurate portrayal of a troubled teen. After the bear near-fatally mauls Cole, there are excruciatingly detailed descriptions of his struggles to survive by eating worms and bugs, a live mouse and even his own vomit. With broken ribs, legs and an arm, and too weak to get up, he defecates in his pants, and fights to stay alive. It is during this time that Cole begins to understand his vulnerability and his relationship to everything that surrounds him. It is here that his transformation begins.
