Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi

Genre: Graphic novel/manga
Rating: ☆☆☆☆, I love this!
Total number of pages: 211

Review by: marquis
My current book type: Graphic Novel

A young girl named Emily and her family are on a quest to stop the elf king and save the world. Her brother Navin and her mother are helping Emily who is a stonekeeper who are very strong people and can use the power of a stone to stop the elf army. Emily with friends are on their way to find a city in the clouds to get help from a guardian council who are the strongest stonekeepers.

What I like about the book is that it shows trust,teamwork and courage. Throughout the series it tells not only the story of Emily but the story of a stonekeeper ,who they are, what they are, and what they stand for. Something I though about the book was that Emily’s character is very strong at will but she has struggles and that tells me that she is like a lot of other people, we all have our times where we dont know what to do but we stand strong and I feel like I could relate to her.

So B. It by Sarah Weeks

Genre: Mystery
Rating: ☆☆☆☆, I love this!
Total number of pages: not sure, about 300

Review by: Katherin
My current book type: mystery

It’s about a mother whose name is So B. It and that has a mental disorder, and her daughter haliey wants to know her past. She mostly wants to teach her new stuff and learn what the word soof is.

One thing about this book is that it has flashbacks into what they did. It’s also really sweet because they’re is a character name bernie and she has been helping haliey and her mom since she has a mental disorder. Halieys mom knows nothing about her past, also she cant speak she’s like a baby just bigger.

Three words that describe this book:
awesome.
