Lizzy Trudeaux loves basketball. So when she gets a chance to play on the boys’ basketball team at her school, she takes it. One day, Lizzy gets a robocall that offers her a wish. She wishes that she’ll never miss another basketball shot in her life. At first, she’s scared to use her power. But when she does, she gets the skills to play for the NBA. Lizzy’s best friend,Toby, sets up a scheme so she can meet with the Philadelphia Bells coach, Jimmy Mack. When she does, she shows off her amazing skills and they sign her to play for the team. She makes the last-place team a great team. Just when she is about to play what will probably be the biggest game of her life, against Lebrun James, she accidentally cancels the wish. What will happen to Lizzy? Will the Bells win? Find out by reading Lizzy Legend!

I liked Lizzy Legend because it is about basketball, and basketball’s one of my favourite sports. My favourite character is Lizzy, because she is really hard working. She wants to be a good player, so she wakes up super early every morning to practice. I would recommend this book to people who like basketball.

Weirdo by Anh Do (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Wednesday, Apr 17, 2019 at 1:58pm

Weirdo is about a boy named Weir.It's a weird name right? But when his first name and his last name are put together it's Weirdo. Well he? a new kid in school and everyone laughs when he says his name (like always). Then the seventh prettiest girl in school comes over and Weir? little brother Tommy gets her doll covered in food!

I think that Weirdo is gross. Boys will probably like it but I dont think girls will, since I didn't really like it. I'll just give it a 2 out of 5.

Rumple Buttercup by Matthew Gray Gubler (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Sunday, Apr 14, 2019 at 2:48pm

Rumple Buttercup is about a guy named Rumple Buttercup who lives in a drain next to a garbage can. My favorite character is the guy who says, "I sing like a frog." I didn't like some of the drawings because I think you can make it better. I really liked the PJ parade. My favorite part was the PJ parade because I like parades and PJ's. I think there should be an Easter egg or some sort of girl in the drain or kid. I would recommend this book 5 stars.

Best Babysitters Ever by Caroline Cala (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Saturday, Apr 13, 2019 at 7:34pm

Once upon a time, a girl named Kristy Thomas had a great idea: to form The Baby-Sitters Club with her best friends. And now twelve-year-old Malia Twiggs has had a great idea too. Technically, she had Kristy’s idea.(Andtechnically, little kids seem gross and annoying, but a paycheck is a paycheck). After a little convincing, Malia and her friends Dot and Bree start a babysitting club to earn funds for an epic birthday bash. But babysittingdefinitelyisn’t what they thought it would be.Three friends. No parents. Unlimited snacks. And, okay, occasionally watching other people’s children. What could possibly go wrong?

I love the original Baby-Sitters Club books so I had a feeling this was going to be a good book. Best Babysitters circles around three friends named Bree, Malia (really wants to be called Alia!), and Dot. Together they form the BAD Babysitters Club. And all they want is to make a few bucks for their joint birthday party! I liked how Malia (Alia) feels she has to live up to her sister and how her sister made that hard for her. If you already baby-sit it might be fun to see if you would have handled it differently. And you probably would have. I give this book 10 out of 10!
