The Countdown Conspiracy by Katie Slivensky (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Jul 27, 2017 at 6:33pm

Miranda Regent can’t believe she was just chosen as one of six kids from around the world to train for the first ever mission to Mars. But as soon as the official announcement is made, she begins receiving anonymous threatening messages…and when the training base is attacked, it looks like Miranda is the intended target. Now the entire mission—and everyone’s lives—are at risk. And Miranda may be the only one who can save them.

The Countdown Conspiracy by Katie Slivensky was a great book to read. I didn't want to put the book down. The indepth characters have lots of detail. Ruby, the robot has 5 legs on each side; that is 10 legs in total. And all the legs rotate to work like arms.  I also like that the characters are geniuses. I like the big chapters, which make me want to read more, in order to get to the end of the chapter. and then there is some action that makes me want to continue reading farther. I liked this book so much that I have read it twice!

The Eye of the North by Sinead O'Hart (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Jul 26, 2017 at 6:50pm

Eye of The North is a unique book with great characters and never ending action. It follows Emmeline and Thing who both are destined to stop a villainous mastermind called Dr. Siegfried Bauer. Dr. Bauer is wishing to summon a mysterious and mythical creature which can give whoever controls it, power over the whole world. Sadly for Thing and Emmeline, Dr. Siegfried Bauer isn’t the only one trying to capture the creature.

I loved this book because of it’s action, fun and energetic plot and overall I just liked it. The only thing that I didn’t really like about the book is that the pace of the whole story was a bit slow.

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Jul 24, 2017 at 9:13pm

When Lucy hears about a coding club in her school she can’t wait to get started. But soon Lucy starts getting cryptic coding messages. She understands the first few ones, but she doesn’t understand the last few at all. Her and her friends figure out what the last few mean and try to figure out who sent them. Lucy and her friends make an app, with a little help of Lucy’s brother, Alex, that will help them find out who sent the messages. Will they find out who sent the messages? Will Lucy ever learn how to code? Find out by reading Girls who Code: The Friendship Code!

In this book I liked how eager Lucy was to learn coding and how Lucy and her friends never gave up on trying to find out who sent the messages. I also liked this book because it was about coding. If you like coding this is a good book for you.

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Jul 20, 2017 at 6:44pm

Eleven year old Thomas Fallgrout goes to Pennybaker School when he discovers he can do magic. In the school there is a statue of the head of the late great Helen Heirmauser. The statue is very important to the school but Thomas doesn’t know that so he calls it creepy and bad things. So when the statue goes missing everybody thinks its him who stole it. Did Thomas steal the statue? And if he didn’t who did? Find in Pennybaker School is Headed for Disaster!

In this book I liked how Thomas never gave up on trying to find out who stole the statue even when everybody thought it was him. Even his own parents! It was really hard to predict who stole the statue. I was very surprised at the end. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
