The Lost Realm by J. D. Rinehart (from a Two Thumbs up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at 4:13pm

Can you imagine poisoning a king, or fighting zombies, or even being kidnapped? No, probably not. But the triplets Gulf, Elodie, and Tarlan have done all these things and more.

In this exiting sequel to The Crown of Three, the triplets embark on many dangerous adventures: Gulf is fleeing from a zombie infested town and discovers a underground hidden city; Tarlan has set out on a journey with the wizard Melchior to help him regain his powers; and Elodie has been captured by her stepfather Lord Vicerin and locked in Castle Vicerin with her ghost friend Samial. All in all, an average day for the triplets. However, things go overboard when Lord Vicerin becomes the king of Tornia and kills all the rest of the leaders of the castles. Now it is up to the triplets to save all of Tornia before Vicerin takes over the entire world.

Edge of Extinction: The Ark Plan by Laura Martin (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Sunday, May 22, 2016 at 10:35am

One hundred and fifty years ago, the first dinosaurs were cloned. Soon after, they replaced humans at the top of the food chain. The only way to survive was to move into underground compounds. Five years ago, Sky Mundy’s father vanished from North Compound without a trace. Now she has just stumbled on a clue that not only suggests his disappearance is just the tip of an even larger mystery, but also points directly to the surface. To find her dad—and possibly even save the world—Sky and her best friend, Shawn, must break out of their underground home and venture topside to a land reclaimed by nature and ruled by dinosaurs.

The storyline in this book is amazing. The cover is interesting and I can tell by looking at the cover that the characters will have cool adventures above ground. The characters are smart and I like how the story progressed. I like how the different people built different shelters. 5 out of 5 stars.

Ella and Skylar are drifting apart. The only way to save this friendship is to create a BFF bucket list. But with new friendships and big secrets, it's not going to be easy to complete it.

This is a great book about tween girl friendships. This book even inspired my friend and I to create a BFF bucket list of our own! I loved this book and give it two thumbs up!
