$26.50 Add to Cart

Although ten-year-old Kobi’s parents sailed into a storm at sea five years ago, she knows they are alive. If she says “Avanti!” she can see them. Now that her life is being turned upside down again, she will need the magic words her mother left behind more than ever. Instead of living with wealthy Grandmamma in Paris, Kobi and her sister will temporarily stay in Des Moines, Iowa. There, the girls will, as Uncle Wim puts it, “live like normal kids for a change.” To fit in at her new school Kobi tells lies that soon catch up with her. In a heart-wrenching climax, she must confront not only the untruths she has told others but the stories she has made herself believe. Only then will she be able to grieve for her parents and move on with her life.

I read the book 27 Magic Words. I thought it was a good book. What I liked about it is that the author made you feel sorry for the characters when sad things happened. I liked 27 Magic Words a lot, it was the kind of book that you cant stop reading. I also liked it because I love reading magical and mysterious books and this book is perfect for that.

To Stay Alive by Skila Brown (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Nov 01, 2016 at 6:16pm

The Graves family, like many others, travels west to California for a new and better life. Along the way this family meets many challenges that force this family to come together and to make sacrifices for survival. To Stay Alive is a decent and elegant novel made up of short poems. I would recommend this book for anyone who is partial to historical fiction and poetry. I loved how accurate this book is. Prepare to learn about a fascinating events in history like the the Donner Party of 1846. And enjoy it at the same time!

Paris for Two by Phoebe Stone (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Oct 19, 2016 at 4:15pm

Most people go to Paris to fall in love, but twelve-year-old Petunia Beanly goes to Paris to hide from it. She knows how much love hurts. She'll never forget how painful it was to mess up badly with Windel Watson, the only boy who has ever made her heart turn over. Besides, love is really only for the golden people, like Pet's gorgeous, glamorous, and infuriating older sister, Ava. So when Pet and her family move to Paris for a year, her plan is to stay in her new room with the blankets over her head. But Paris has a surprise in store for both Beanly sisters that will change the way they see themselves, each other, and the swirling adventure that is a first crush.

I think that this book is good for anyone who likes romance novels and a bit of history. I didn't like the book in the beginning, but it got a bit better in the middle. Sometimes it got a little but confusing because it went back and forth between the present and the past. Overall, it was a good book, but I wouldn't want to buy it for myself.
