As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister's sake, and her own.

The Black Lotus by Kieran Fanning (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Aug 29, 2016 at 12:44pm

Ghost, Kate, and Cormac are unique kids. Ghost can turn invisible, Cormac can be faster than anyone else, and Kate can talk to animals. When they are requested to join the Black Lotus, a ninja school, they don’t refuse. However, in the Black Lotus they will uncover mysteries, secrets, and danger at every turn. What will they find next?

The Black Lotus was a great book. I liked the all the action. It was a little bit too violent, though. This book was cool, and action lovers would probably enjoy it.

I give this book 4.6 out of 5 stars.

- Addison, a Two Thumbs Up reviewer

The Black Lotus will be available September 27.

This book is about a girl named Jess. Her mother is a famous chef, but while her mother is awesome at cooking, Jess and her friends, Sadie and Maya, suck at it. Eventually a new babysitter/friend enters the picture and life gets more interesting. Her new friend begins to teach her about herbs. Will it make any difference for Jess in the kitchen? (This book includes a recipe in it.)
