The Seven Wonders series is about four kids named Jack, Aly, Cass, and Marco who have a disease called GW7 which takes whatever they're good at and supercharges it. The only problem is that if not cured, it could kill them, and the only cure is to find the seven Loculi. In Lost in Babylon, they go to ancient Babylon to retrieve the flight Loculus and the invisibility Loculus.
I recommend this book to people who like adventure and travel books because they travel around the world and they go on lots of missions. After reading this book I definitely want to read the rest of the series. Over all this was a great book.

The magical world of Artimé is gone. The Unwanteds have no food, no water, and no hope. And everyone is looking to Alex Stowe for answers. Overwhelmed and feeling totally helpless, Alex knows it's up to him to complete three impossible tasks. Meanwhile, Alex's twin brother Aaron continues to build his army, but a shocking twist reveals that Alex and Aaron share a common enemy more dangerous than either could have imagined...
This book was AMAZING! I can tell you right off the top that if you like suspense, action and fantasy and a little romance this is the book for you. I really enjoyed this book because it was fantasy but their magic was all art. This is the third book in the series and I think it is the best. The book is full of twists and turns that will keep you thinking and you will never want to put it down.

Eleven-year-old Holly Shepard longs for adventure and that is precisely what she gets when she is given an old iron key that unlocks a door?in a tree. Holly crosses the threshold into a stunning and magical medieval world, Anglielle. And as she does so, something unlocks within Holly: a primal, powerful magic. Joined on her journey by two tagalongs, Holly must find a way to save them and find a way back home.
This book explains the setting very well! I think it's also very clear how much Holly changes, because you notice it early in the adventure. I think this book handled the subject really well, because you can tell what's happening in the book even when it's confusing. People who love books where they travel to whole other worlds will love this book.
This book is appropriate to anybody who is over the age of 7 or 8. This book is a bit dull but I suppose it's because this book is Medieval. This book could be more sarcastic but I still love this book!

I enjoyed reading this book but I felt it was a little too slow paced. This book is based on having a father that was in war and trying to establish a normal life afterwards. This is definitely a mature read and quite haunting. It exposes the demons all hiding inside of us, some more than others.
This book also exposes the struggles that soldiers have after they've returned from war. The main character, Hayley, is also finally exposed to interaction and socialization among people. We also see the emotions that come when you are new and trying to fit in. The Impossible Knife of Memory. I adored the sarcastic comments and comparisons in this book. Hayley is just so relatable to the average teenager. I would definitely recommend trying this book.has created some brilliant and relatable characters in this book, one of the highlights of
