Five Times Revenge by Lindsay Eland (from a Two Thumbs up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Jul 30, 2016 at 12:46pm

Five unlikely friends. Two bullies. One epic prank. Adam is the prank mastermind. Perk is his best friend and the computer genius. Pearl is the prettiest girl in school—and a violin prodigy. Ray looks like a big dumb jock, but he secretly wants to be an engineer. And Dutch is the often-bullied dork who is in tune with everyone’s feelings. The five of them couldn’t be more different. But there’s one thing they have in common: they are fed up with Hill Parmar, the school bully—and his dad, their school principal who’s always turning a blind eye. When Hill finally steps over the line, the five unlikely schemers band together for a prank like their middle school has never seen.

Five Times Revenge was a good book, but not my favourite book ever. When I reached around the middle and end though, I started to kind of cling to it. The storyline was cool and I would have never thought to write a book about that, and I would have never thought the five characters would have ever become friends. I think the plan of putting the car on the roof wasn't as good as the plan for auctioning off the car online and giving the money to a special needs classroom. Putting the car in the cafeteria for everyone to see and calling reporters and the new channels was much a better plan.

Soar by Tracy Edward Wymer (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Jul 28, 2016 at 12:33pm

This book is about a boy named Eddie whose dad "flew away" (died) a year ago. From his dad, Eddie got a love of birding. So what Eddie really wants to do is find the golden eagle and prove that what his dad discovered is real.

But, with a charming new girl in town and the science symposium coming up, lots of dramatic events are happening. Will Eddie win the blue ribbon at the symposium or will he lose? And will he prove that the golden eagle is real?

The Rat Prince by Bridget Hodder (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Jul 27, 2016 at 3:03pm

You have probably heard the story of Cinderella, but have you ever thought of the rats that were turned into coachmen? In this book you will hear the story from both Price Char (the Rat Prince) and Cinderella's voices.

There was once a girl named Rose de Lancastyr, but when her step-family moves in, they insult her by naming her Cinderella. One day, Cinderella finds out Prince Geoffrey is having a ball and hopefully will wed a wife! But when the Rat Prince sees how evil Prince Geoffrey is, he has to stop Cinderella from going to the ball! This book is appropriate for people who like fairytales and adventures. This book is a very unique fairytale and you probably haven't heard Cinderella like this before.

The Rat Prince will be available August 23.

The Voyage to Magical North is about a girl named Brine Seaborne and a boy named Peter. They both live in the house of a magician named Tallis Magus where Brine is his servant and Peter is his apprentice. One day they get into big trouble, so they row away in a row boat! When Peter sees a boat, he thinks they are saved. But then they see the flag... It’s a pirate ship! Read the book to find out what happens next! I totally recommend this book and I think everyone will enjoy it.
