The Eye of the North by Sinead O'Hart (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Jul 26, 2017 at 6:26pm

Eye of The North is a unique book with great characters and never ending action. It follows Emmeline and Thing who both are destined to stop a villainous mastermind called Dr. Siegfried Bauer. Dr. Bauer is wishing to summon a mysterious and mythical creature which can give whoever controls it, power over the whole world. Sadly for Thing and Emmeline, Dr. Siegfried Bauer isn’t the only one trying to capture the creature.

I loved this book because of it’s action, fun and energetic plot and overall I just liked it. The only thing that I didn’t really like about the book is that the pace of the whole story was a bit slow.

When Lucy hears about a coding club in her school she can’t wait to get started. But soon Lucy starts getting cryptic coding messages. She understands the first few ones, but she doesn’t understand the last few at all. Her and her friends figure out what the last few mean and try to figure out who sent them. Lucy and her friends make an app, with a little help of Lucy’s brother, Alex, that will help them find out who sent the messages. Will they find out who sent the messages? Will Lucy ever learn how to code? Find out by reading Girls who Code: The Friendship Code!

In this book I liked how eager Lucy was to learn coding and how Lucy and her friends never gave up on trying to find out who sent the messages. I also liked this book because it was about coding. If you like coding this is a good book for you.

In this book I liked how Thomas never gave up on trying to find out who stole the statue even when everybody thought it was him. Even his own parents! It was really hard to predict who stole the statue. I was very surprised at the end. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
