I personally enjoyed this book more than many others that I have read. The story is one that kids who are in middle school can kind of relate to. It was basically giving me the message that it doesn't matter how you look on the outside, what's on the inside really matters. Even though in most school environments kids do the opposite, it really made you feel that that motto could work in schools, with a bit of hope and courage. August Pullman, the main character, and his friends showed exactly that.  Wonder

I enjoyed this I Survived book because of it's interesting story and point of view. The author narrates the story of Thomas, and his younger sister Birdie, who are both slaves, in a great way for kids to understand. You'll enjoy it a lot!   Place a hold!

This book felt a bit slow-paced to me at the beginning portion of it, but as it progressed, I felt it becoming more interesting. It teaches you an important lesson about figuring out who you really are and becoming a better person.  Touching Spirit Bear

This murder mystery will keep you up all night reading! This book is thrilling, exciting, and a little creepy. The main characters Mr. langdon and Sophie decipher different codes to solve the mystery. The da Vinci code is for mature readers.   Place a hold!

This book was amazing! I see why it was in the top ten teen choices. I couldn't tear my eyes away from it. Literally! It was funny, sad, scary, romantic, etc. I wish I owned this book so I could read it over and over again, instead of borrowing it from the library. I guess I will have to renew it a bunch!  Eleanor & Park
