My Top Secret Dares & Don'ts by Trudi Trueit (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Mar 18, 2017 at 7:39pm

Kestrel and her family are headed out to Vancouver, BC, to help out her grandmother at her beautiful ski lodge. It’s been in the family for generations, but the business is in trouble—and there are lots of people looking to take over the property. Kestrel is determined to help her family retain their precious business—one that her grandfather built literally from the ground up. But two evil twins—who happen to be the daughters of a property developer determined to drive the lodge out of business—prove to be her nemeses in every way possible. Can Kestrel help save the lodge and beat the twins at their own game?

I really liked the book My Top Secret Dares and Don'ts because it was adventurous and it had a bit of mystery. I think that the book was very well written, and I almost felt like I was in the book because the author described everything so well. I found it very easy to read, and it only took me two days to finish. I would definitely recommend reading it.

Forever, or a Long, Long Time by Caela Carter (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Mar 14, 2017 at 1:52pm

This book is about 9-year-old Flora and 8-year-old Julian, who are siblings. They have been living in foster care for many years until a family adopts them. The kids have been living with their family for almost two years when their parents tell them they’re going to have a baby. Things fall apart while fearing for their unknown future. Julian hides food in his closet and Flora stops talking. They want to learn about their past.

This book is a story about repairing the past to fix your future. The love that the family showed one another made me feel happy. I really enjoyed this book and I hope you do too!

The Key Hunters: The Spy's Secret by Eric Luper (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Mar 11, 2017 at 3:25pm

Cleo and Evan have a secret. A collection of books so dangerous they are locked up tight. A friend has vanished inside the pages of one of them. It's up to them to find the key that will set her free. A SPY MUST BE READY FOR ANYTHING! Agents Cleo and Evan have been given an impossible mission: become super-spies and foil the plans of an evil mastermind. But it won't be easy to break into the Viper's secret underwater lair, complete a daring rescue, find the right key, and get out alive!

The Spy's Secret is the second book in the Key Hunters series. It has everything a good spy book should have. These elements are: having at least one interpreting spy, lots of adventure, an evil villian that leads an organization and threatens the world, a secret location, and some cool spy gadgets! Overall, I think the series is quite good for kids 7-10 years old. I give this book a 4 out of 5 star rating. Read the other books to find out what happens to Cleo and Evan on their missions. There is also a game where you find keys and avoid Ms.Crowley and a quiz to find out what genre you fit in with. Here is the link for it, have fun! http://www.scholastic.com/keyhunters/

Simon Thorn and the Viper's Pit by Aimee Carter (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Mar 04, 2017 at 7:03pm

Do you want a super power? Maybe to fly? Maybe to turn into an animal? If you already have this power you are likely an animalgam. A human with the power to turn into an animal. Simon Thorn is one of those people. However, he is different, he is the beast kings heir. This means he can turn into any animal. When Simon gets a message from his mother saying to come to her, Simon wants to leave right away, but some complications stop him. Eventually, he and his friends leave to find his mother, but they are faced with impossible decisions, powerful enemies and a possible traitor. This is the second book in the Simon Thorn Series and I would recommend reading the first book before reading this one.
