Spark is about a quiet farm girl named Mina, who learns even the quietest have a voice. It takes place in a land called Aloria where Mina and her friends Pixit, Chauda and Jyx, get inducted into Mystris Lightning School for lightning guardians. The main character, Mina is shy, but when she speaks, people listen. She will need to use her voice to make the Alorians realize there is an outside of Aloria, but what exactly? This is a third-person book and I think it's good for readers who like school-drama and adventure (and a slight bit of rule breaking). I liked the book because it has a fun plot and cool characters!

Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Friday, Jan 24, 2020 at 3:17pm

Jack and Lilly are no strangers to heroics. They’ve befriended dragons, battled giants, and even earned the loyalty of a goblin army. So when they meet Zita the Spacegirl, fresh from her interplanetary travels and seeking their help to face a new threat, they’re more than ready for another adventure.But the danger growing just outside the door to their world is greater than anything the new friends could have imagined. An army of giants and screeds stands ready to lay siege to Earth, determined to put the age of humans to an end.With the gate between worlds growing weaker and time running out, can the heroes come together to save their world from their greatest enemy yet?

Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl is about 2 heroes and their allies working together to save the world from giants. I thought this book was about accepting change as some of the people in this book have a difficult time making friends with the other heroes. I thought this book was fairly good and would gladly read it again.

Catwad by Jim Benton (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Meet Catwad! He's blue, he's a bit of a grouch, and his best friend is a dim-witted cat named Blurmp who can see the bright side of anything. From pizza and computers, to love and happiness, this crabby tabby has a funny take on just about everything, and he's not afraid to share it. This collection of short comic stories will make even the grumpiest of grouches crack up and is not to be missed!

Catwad is very funny and I read all of the first book. I did however like the second one a bit better because it had more than just Catwad. There were lots of other characters that I liked. Also it was happier in this book.

The 47 People You'll Meet in Middle School by Kristin Mahoney (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Sunday, Jan 19, 2020 at 3:57pm

This book is about a girl named Augusta, but people call her Gus. In this book she’s telling us and her little sister Louisa (known as Lou or Louie) about her dramatic life in middle school. Lets get started! So first of all, her dad forgets to tell her that grade six’s are supposed to go to the back door of the school, not the front door. When she finally gets to the back door (after an embarrassing little moment) she doesn’t see anyone she anyone she knows. When Gus starts a gambling ring she gets in big trouble from her parents. Also later on in the book she and her friends get in big trouble, but for something they didn’t even do! I wonder who did it? And do you think they will find out who? I really, really like this book because of all of the suspense. I give The 47 People You'll Meet in Middle School a five out of five!

King of the Mole People by Paul Gilligan (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Friday, Jan 17, 2020 at 5:50pm

Doug Underbelly is doing his best to be normal. It's not easy: he's bad at jokes, he's lousy at sports, and he lives in a creaky old mansion surrounded by gravestones. Also Magda, the weird girl at school, won't leave him alone. And if that weren’t enough, he recently got crowned King of an underground race of Mole People.Doug didn't ask to be king—it's a job he can't really avoid, like the eel sandwiches his dad makes for him (with love). If he thought dealing with seventh grade was tricky, it's nothing compared to navigating the feud between Mole People, Slug People, Mushroom Folk and Stone Goons, not to mention preventing giant worms from rising up and destroying everything. How will Doug restore order? It's all a matter of diplomacy!

I’ll just say that I really like King of the Mole People because it’s kind of funny. It gets a rating of 4 out of 5!
