Search the Library Catalog for this title   Daniel at the Siege of Boston, 1776
by Laurie Calkhoven
I read this book in a few days. Its a great read for kids ages 8-12 who love historical fiction. This book is a great book to read while learning about the Revolutionary War. The content really helps you understand how people felt during the war. IF YOU LOVE HISTORICAL FICTION, THIS IS A MUST READ!

Search the Library Catalog for this title   The library card
by Jerry Spinelli
I just finished reading The Library Card by Jerry Spinelli. The book is divided into 4 parts. The first part is called Mongoose. Mongoose is a boy who just turned 12. When the library card comes out of nowhere, Mongoose turns into a completely new person. Mongoose uses the library card to get out a book that he loves. The second part is called Brenda. Brenda is a girl who watches A LOT of T.V. Section three is is called Sonseray. Sonseray is a 12 year old boy. He lives with his uncle Jack, who has lost several jobs in 7 states, all because of Sonseray’s rotten behavior. The very last section of this fabulous book is called April Mendez. April and her family move from New York City to a mushroom farm in Pennsylvania. April is kidnapped by Nanette who has just hijacked the book mobile. I would recommend the Library Card by Jerry Spinelli to everyone. This is a really good book. The characters are a lot like me, I love the library and I love books. The last story about April and Nanette was my favorite. It ended happily and I was glad about that. I loved The Library Card. It is a great book.

by Spinelli, Jerry.
This is the second book that I have read by Jerry Spinelli. Jack is the main character and his friends are Lajo and Dusty. They call themselves the Amigos. The other main characters are Jubilee and Ana Mae. Here is the story so far. Jack wakes up and his bike is gone. He looks and he sees a girl on his bike. He meets his friends and they track down Jack’s bike. I liked this book and enjoyed reading it. I think you will too.

by Sharon M. Draper
This book is really good. It is about 10 year old Melody who has cerebral palsy and she can’t walk or talk. Then she gets a computer that can talk for her and she can type what she wants to say and it will say it. She is really smart but nobody knows it tell this computer. This book was very very interesting and I recommend it.

I really liked this book because its magical yet adventurous. It starts when two siblings: Alex and Conner, are givin’ a fairy book not knowing its magical. Soon the twins are swept into the fairytale book. As much as they love this magical land; they want to go home. Will they ever get back to earth? What will their family think of it?

Search the Library Catalog for this title   Remarkable : a novel
by Foley, Lizzie K.
Everyone in the town of Remarkable is remarkable. All the children go to Remarkable’s school for the Remarkably Gifted, and they each have a special talent that they are especially good at...except ten-year-old Jane, who doesn’t seem to be incredibly good at anything. But soon, everything changes when a pirate captain comes to town and the evil Grimlet twins start going to Jane’s public school (before they came, she was the only one who went there). I recommend this book for kids ages 10 and up.
