The Wolf Hour by Sara Lewis Holmes (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Sep 23, 2017 at 1:26pm

The Puszcza is a magical forest where even the darkest fairy tales are real. People say if you go in the Puszcza in the wolf hour you may never come back. The Wolf Hour is about a girl Magia, a wolf named Martin, and a witch named Miss Grand. Magia is a girl who wants to be a woodcutter like her father, Martin is a talking wolf, and Miss Grand is a strange witch who makes weird flutes that are supposed to keep you safe from the Puszcza. When Magia’s Tata buy’s Magia’s mom a clock from Miss Grand because she was very sick, she suddenly gets better. When Magia sets the clock a bit earlier to go into the Puszcza her mom and her siblings don’t wake up again and she needs a key to fix the clock so they will wake up again, but Miss Grand has the key. Will Magia’s mom and siblings wake up again? Find out by reading The Wolf Hour!

I think this is a good book because it teaches you a lesson. The lesson is, even if something seems really cool and is really tempting to, if it seems bad you shouldn’t do it because you could end up in an unpleasant situation, or something bad could happen to you. In this book, the Puszcza is that dreadful thing. If you go in you become mad and you might never return. I didn’t really understand what was happening though. It was like, one thing happens then a whole lot of different things happen. So, I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

The Losers Club by Andrew Clements (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Friday, Sep 22, 2017 at 7:24pm

Life for Alec Spenser has been bad. He gets teased and called a bookworm, especially by a kid named Kent Blair. When Alec's parents signed him and his little brother, Luke, up for the extended day program, Alec thought he could just sit and read but he found out that it was much harder than that. He needed to start an actual club. Alec decides on a book club, but he only wanted a few people to actually be in the club. He needed a name that would repel the kids from joining and he eventually came up with the name The Losers Club. But he needed at least one more person to join the club before he could start it, so Alec looked around and saw a girl reading. Alec walked up and asked if she wanted to join the club. She first said no, but Alec explained the point of The Losers Club and eventually she agreed to join. The girl introduced herself as Nina Warner and from then on after school, Nina and Alec sat down at the table and read for three hours straight. It all went well until Alec got a note from the school principle that made Alec's parents worry about Alec's grades. So they said that Alec has to go to Homework club every day after school which meant Alec had to leave his club so he came up with a deal. He said that every Friday all his teachers would write on a piece of paper what they would grade Alec on the lesson. One night, when Alec was done his dinner, he went upstairs to read and suddenly he remembered the Homework Club had to do a presentation soon! Can Alec complete the presentation on time or even stay in The Losers Club? Find out in, The Losers Club!

The Adventurer's Guide to Dragons by Wade Albert White (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Sep 21, 2017 at 9:52pm

Ever since escaping the cruel orphanage in which they were brought up in, Anne and Penelope have done more than they have ever done within a two month period. They've fought suits of armour that moved by themselves, they have climbed mountains, managed not to be killed by huge bombs, and won an award for the Best Illegal Quest That Nearly Destroyed the Entire World. But now, they've got a new quest - to kill the Dragon Queen, even though doing this will cause a war between humans and dragons. Now Anne and Penelope must stop another person from doing just that. Only if they can survive volcanoes, mines, robots and the dragon trials, then can they fight the most difficult battle of their life. And if they fail, the world is doomed.

The White Tower by Cathryn Constable (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Sep 19, 2017 at 5:15pm

The White Tower is about a girl named Livy. Livy gets accepted at Temple college, for reasons not even she understands. Mostly, the people there get chosen for their smarts and riches, and Livy doesn’t think she has any of those things. But as she’s there, she has an odd dream that she can fly! But, with a bunch of weird events, she realizes maybe the dream wasn’t so false after all…

I recommend this book to people who like mystery books. I give this book 4/5 stars.

- Addison, a Two Thumbs Up reviewer

The White Tower will be available September 26.
