The Way to Bea by Kat Yeh (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Sep 12, 2017 at 5:14pm

Seventh grade is a big year for Beatrix Lee, but not in a good way.
Currently friendless, and soon not to be an only child, Bea's life is full of changes. When Bea finds an answer to the poem she put in
the wall, Bea thinks it might be an old friend. What will Bea do? Should
Bea go up to her friend and talk to her? Should she write back? Or do
nothing?

Bea is an awesome character and easy to connect with. This book is well written and will (hopefully) be a bestseller. I think you
should really read this book.

The Way to Bea will be available September 19.

Little Bits of Sky by S.E. Durrant (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Sunday, Sep 10, 2017 at 2:55pm

Two foster-system-weary siblings find an unlikely family as they hope for a permanent home. Ira and Zac, veterans of the foster system, are being uprooted again. This time their destination is Skilly House, a London-based home for children. There, Ira, eleven, and Zac, nine, befriend the staff and other kids, all the while hoping to find their own family to belong to. When they're invited to spend a holiday with Martha, a retiree, the visit opens the children's eyes to what life in a permanent home might be like. But a tragic accident soon tests Ira, Zac, and Martha. Can they truly come together as a family? This gentle story explores the love and complexities behind the ties that bind.

I picked Little Bits of Sky by S.E. Durrant because the title can get you thinking about how the sky has little bits. When I started reading this book, I realized that it was completely different. My favorite character is Ira because she is mature but can also be childish too. This book is geared towards the ages 10 to 13. It includes the reality of children without parents and is one of the reasons why i like this book. I give it a 4 out of 5 star rating because I think it's a good book to read and I definitely recommend it to anyone my age.

Ollie Gnome and Celia Pixie are best friends … with a twist. They are both elves! But one day, Santa makes a giant announcement that will transform the North Pole forever! He decides that instead of giving the role of Santa to his oldest son, he is going to let any kid in the North Pole have the chance to be the next Santa. Let the Santa trials begin! Twelve different kids are trying to win, including Celia and Ollie. There are ten different trials and lots of drama too! Who will win?

I do not recommend this book for kids younger than ten or eleven.

The Explorer by Katherine Rundell (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Sep 07, 2017 at 5:31pm

In The Explorer, a plane crashes in the middle of the Amazon jungle. Four children: Fred, Max, Lila and Con are stranded and trying to survive. But when Fred finds a map to a lost city, they gain hope that they might actually survive the Amazon Jungle and get back home.

The Explorer was a fantastic book. It was very exciting and is a great survival book. It was fun reading as the four characters ate some yucky things. You have to try The Explorer!

The Explorer will be available September 12.
