Bubble by Stewart Foster (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Jun 19, 2017 at 7:05pm

Imagine if you can’t go outside to get some fresh air. Then think about the young boy named Joe who cannot leave his hospital room. Joe loves having visits with his sister Beth and talking about superheroes with his best friend Henry. Joe and Henry have the same problem they’re allergic to dust so they cannot leave they’re room at all. So Joe always loves when his favourite nurse Greg comes and hangs out with him. But then one day a new nurse starts and he believes in aliens and watches for them from Joe’s room and that creeps Joe out.

I really liked this book because it shows that people have difficulties in life and that you just have to keep pushing forward.

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.
