All good books catch the audience in the first paragraph. This book caught me in the first sentence on the back; “Welcome to Ruby Holler, the one and only Ruby Holler, your lives will never be the same.” Well, I know what you’re thinking, that’s really corny. That’s what I thought-until I read it.
Magic doesn’t have to be making something disappear, imagination is the greatest magic of all. In this book the two kids use their imaginations to get through almost everything. If you want to enter a world of magic, all you have to do is read this book. Personally, one of my favorites.
This book is about a boy who lost his memory. The queen of the gods, Hera is trapped and he must free her or all Demi-Gods will die. I would recommend this book to anyone who liked the Percy Jackson series and people who like suspense and adventure.
The Cay by Theodore Taylor Reviewed by Zach
This is a very interesting and sad book. I cried during some parts and laughed so hard my stomach hurt at others. I would want everyone to read this book. It is also a great way to learn history. It is about the start of World War 2. A boy leaves on a boat, but there is an unexpected surprise that turns into an exciting and challenging adventure. To find out some history and all about the adventure, read this wonderful book.
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin Reviewed by Gabe
This book is an interesting book. It starts out a bit confusing because you have to learn about all the different characters, and believe me, there are a lot of them! Towards the middle, it gets more readable and the real mystery begins. I liked it because it gets pretty exciting and it is fun to try to put all the clues together to figure out who “did it”. I would recommend this book for people who like mystery and action. I give this book 4 ½ out of 5 stars.
