The Miraculous by Jess Redman (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Monday, Oct 21, 2019 at 9:05pm

Wunder Ellis was only eleven when his baby sister dies at 8 days old and after that, he completely stops believing in miracles. He throws away the journal he used to record all the miracles he ever heard of. He then meets a girl, his age, named Faye and together they discover a house in the woods that belonged to a mysterious old woman. The woman asked them to deliver letters to different people around the town and on the way of doing so, they find more miracles and Wunder started believing again. The woman promised to give them their letter and tell them why she was doing it. Read to find out the crazy journey of Wunder and Faye as they uncover incredible secrets.

The Miraculous is really good. I enjoyed this heartwarming novel because it flowed and the plot was really interesting. It also had a lot of emotional parts.

Balto and the Race Against Time by Helen Moss (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Sunday, Oct 20, 2019 at 12:40pm

This book is again about Trevor, Maia, Baxter, Tiich, and Newton. This time they are in Alaska. They meet a sled dog team who have crashed and two dogs are hurt. Newton and Baxter helped pull the sled. They run into troubles on the way like moose and crashes.

I really like Balto and the Race Against Time because of the drama and action. I give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

Not If I Can Help It by Carolyn Mackler (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Monday, Oct 14, 2019 at 4:17pm

Willa likes certain things to be certain ways. Her socks have to be soft . . . and definitely can't have irritating tags on the inside. She loves the crunch of popcorn and nachos . . . but is grossed out by the crunch of a baby carrot. And slimy foods? Those are the worst.Willa can manage all these things -- but there are some things she can't deal with, like her father's big news. He's been keeping a big secret from her . . . that he's been dating the mom of Willa's best friend Ruby. Willa does NOT like the idea of them being together. And she does NOT like the idea of combining families. And she does NOT like the idea of her best friend becoming her sister overnight. Will she go along with all of these changes? NOT if she can help it!

When I saw Not If I Can Help it written by Carolyn Mackler, I thought it would about Candy because there is a gummy bear on the front cover. It's really about Willa, Ruby and all the things going on in their life. That was the only thing I didn't understand at first. I really liked the book and I hope you do to if you get the chance to read it.

Allies by Alan Gratz (from a Two Thumbs reviewer)

Sunday, Oct 06, 2019 at 1:02pm

D-Day, June 6, 1944: the most expansive military endeavor in history. No less than world cooperation would bring down Hitler and the Axis powers. And so people -- and kids -- across the globe lent their part. From the young US soldiers in the boats, to spies in the French countryside, to kids back on the home front, the coordination of thousands came together.

I would recommend Allies because it taught me all the wonderous things the Canadians, British and Americans did for us during World War II. Dee was my favourite character, even though he was German. He fought against the Nazi's as they were trying to take over the world. My favourite part was James' attack on the Nazi base, they had twice as many troops but James used a grenade launcher and destroyed the Nazi machine guns.
