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!

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 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.

The Wonderling by Mira Bartok (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Sep 14, 2017 at 8:05pm

The Wonderling is a fox-like creature with the ability to speak. For as long as he can remember, he has lived a lonely life at Miss Carbunkle’s Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures, where he is forced to work in a factory when not in a classroom. Miss Carbunkle is a cruel woman, and the Wonderling’s life here is miserable. When he decides to stand up for another creature at the orphanage, he finds himself a new friend named Trinket. Together, the two escape the orphanage to discover a world they’ve never known. However, things aren’t as easy as the Wonderling had hoped outside the orphanage walls. The Wonderling soon learns of a sinister plan that threatens to destroy his one passion, and he must rely on his talents and his new friends to save what he loves.

The Wonderling is an exciting novel with an interesting storyline. The characters are realistic and memorable. Also, this book was filled with detailed descriptions; I could always picture what was happening. Personally, I found that the ending happened too quickly, considering the pace of the rest of the story. This book is perfect for those who love stories of fantasy, friendship and adventure. I would recommend The Wonderling for those aged 10 and older. Overall, The Wonderling, written by Mira Bartók was an exciting read which I would give 4/5 stars.
