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

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Apr 18, 2017 at 9:59am

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 11:17am

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.
