Restart by Gordon Korman (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, May 08, 2017 at 5:24pm

Gordon Kormon’s Restart is a very interesting and intriguing novel. The characters are very memorable. Their thoughts and emotions are unforgettable. The main character, Chase, suffers from his recent memory loss. To make up for all the mistakes and bad deeds he had done before he lost his memory, he does community service every day and tries to make friends with all of his past victims. The end has a surprising twist. I rate this book 9 out of 10.

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, May 06, 2017 at 3:51pm

Thirteen-year-old Jessamine Grace and her mother make a living as sham spiritualists-until they discover that Jess is a mesmerist and that she really can talk to the dead. Soon she is plunged into the dark world of Victorian London's supernatural underbelly and learns that the city is under attack by ghouls, monsters, and spirit summoners. Can Jess fight these powerful forces? And will the group of strange children with mysterious powers she befriends be able to help? As shy, proper Jess transforms into a brave warrior, she uncovers terrifying truths about the hidden battle between good and evil, about her family, and about herself.

This is a thrilling and intriguing tale. Reading this book just makes you wish it could keep going forever. It leaves you hanging at the end of every chapter, you'll want to read it all at once! It gives such detail you could imagine it, which I did. The Mesmerist is a great book!

The Metropolitans by Carol Goodman (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Apr 17, 2017 at 8:15pm

The Metropolitans combines magic, Camelot, and history into an exciting tale of four teenagers on a heroic quest. As the bombing of Pearl Harbor takes place, four 13-year-olds converge on the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and are quickly swept up in a struggle to decode a secret message and foil a Nazi plot to poison the city's population. Magic, monsters, and spies keep things lively as the kids and their adult allies battle ancient evil and their own personal demons. The Metropolitans is an action-packed book with lots of historical events that come to life.

I would recommend this book to anyone one who would like to read a thrilling, action-packed story.

Amina's Voice by Hena Khan (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Apr 17, 2017 at 11:05am

This book is about a 13-year-old girl named Amina. Amina is going into middle school with her best friend Soojin. When Soojin decides she wants to change her name to something more “American,” Amina wonders if she should change her name too. But then Soojin becomes friends with one of the popular girls and Amina is scared of losing her best friend.

I liked this book because it shows that you don’t have to change yourself or your name just to make friends or keep friends.
