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

by McNally Robinson - Monday, May 08, 2017 at 5:31pm

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.

- Gabriel, a Two Thumbs Up reviewer

Restart will be available May 30.

The Mesmerist by Ronald L Smith (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, May 06, 2017 at 4:04pm

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!
