A boy named Hisao is in the park with a soccer ball when he kicks it away near a kid and asked for it back.  Then the kid throws it into a sand pit.  Hisao goes to get it but then the sand pit turns into snakes!  Then Hisao tries to save the boy and his friend!

I thought the book was AWESOME because it is filled with mystery and adventure!  Another reason I like it is because the pictures are AMAZING!  The pictures were amazing because of how detailed they are!

Iko, android best friend of Lunar Queen, Cinder, is partnered with Lunar guard Lian Kinney to take down rogue bio-engineered wolf soldiers and their leader, Alpha Lysander Steel, before they kill Queen cinder and start a massacre of Earth.

I thought this book was an amazing continuation of the Lunar Chronicles series.  From the beautiful art and blue color palette, to the sweet character building moments, it had the perfect mix of emotion from the original series.  This was definitely an amazing book.

Sebastian is throwing a party to find himself a wife.  But he has a secret - he wears a dress.  Because of his dress maker, Frances, he’s Lady Crystallia and is one of the hottest fashion icons.  Will Frances keep his secret?

I loved this book so much I read it in two days!  I loved this book because it talked about friendship and to be yourself.   I would love to see more books like this from Jen Wang!  She is a really good illustrator and author!!

“White Rabbit” is about a teenager named Rufus who must solve the murder of his sister’s boyfriend to clear her name.

I thought “White Rabbit” was a wonderful and suspenseful book.  There were a lot of plot twists throughout the book which left me unable to guess who the killer was.

The book “Champion” is about the history of the American Chestnut tree.  It teaches the story of the fungus that almost wiped out the entire species.  It also tells of their amazing comeback.

I thought “Champion” was a fascinating book.  The reason I found this book fascinating was because of all the scientific information it provides.
