So B. It by Sarah Weeks

Genre: Mystery
Rating: ☆☆☆☆, I love this!
Total number of pages: 245

Review by: Katherin
My current book type: mystery

It’s about how heidi ( a girl ) who wants to know more about her mother and if she has family in the world. Her mother has a bum brain she doesn’t really act like an adult she acts more like a baby, her mom can not talk just 10-15 words.

I like how heidi wants to go somewhere but she couldn’t lied to bernie about going by her self. Heidi admits to basically all her lies like when she lied about her family to alice.

cool,nice,chill

Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi

Genre: Graphic novel/manga
Rating: ☆☆☆☆, I love this!

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.

Three words that describe this book:
awesome,cool,funny
