This book was amazing! How could she write such a good story? No book could top this off!   posted Aug 4, 2004 at 9:02AM

Cover ArtJade green: a ghost story
by Naylor, Phyllis Reynolds
I think Jade Green is a very good book because it uses different types of genres, such as romance, mystery, adventure and drama. This book also has a very good mix of characters. Instead of focusing on one character, they focus on many different characters. This book is by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. This is a great summer read!   posted May 26, 2004 at 12:39PM

This book is about a world where families are only allowed two kids. Read about one kid that's a third-child and when he meets another third-child, his whole life changes. I think that if you like suspense and sad bookks, you should read this one.   posted May 9, 2006 at 11:08AM

Matilda is a little girl who is the youngest in her family. She loves to read and her parents think she is horribly stupid because of it.They think that she should watch TV instead.This book is hilariously ingenious. I give it 2 thumbs up.   posted Jun 29, 2004 at 12:40PM

Cover ArtThe book of Dead Days
by Sedgwick, Marcus
I really enjoyed this book. It is very different from any other books I have read. It does not go very fast but it makes you want to know what is going to happen next. I reccommend this book to people who enjoy medevial suspense.   posted Mar 20, 2006

Cover ArtEleven on top
by Evanovich, Janet
It was hilarious! A great addition to the Stephanie Plum series.   posted Jul 18, 2005

Cover ArtThe princess and the goblin
by MacDonald, George, 1824-1905
It is a good book. It is about a princess who has to leave the palace and live in a cottage sort of a thing. And she meets a boy Curdie who finds things out about the goblins. She meets her Fairy Grandmother in an attic room. And her Fairy Grandmother gives her a gift. Now, I won't tell you what happens, but I think girls would probably like this book more than boys. But I could be wrong.   posted Jul 30, 2004

Cover ArtWicked, the life and times of the Wicked Witch of the West : a novel
by Maguire, Gregory
I enjoyed Wicked a lot. I liked hearing things from the witch's side of the story. It did not keep my interest up the whole time, but in the end I fell in love with it.   posted Sep 14, 2005

Cover ArtOrdinary people
by Guest, Judith.
Judith Guest creates a charcter, Conrad Jarrett, that readers will find themselves being able to relate to. He seems so normal. I found myself, numerous times, understanding exactly what Jarrett was thinking. This book helps the reader to see that we all have problems and secrets. We spend so much time trying to hide them because we are afraid of what others will think when they find out we are not perfect. The reality that Guest shows the reader, though, is that these problems are not what set us apart but rather what makes us all similar. It's ordinary to be slightly disfunctional.   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover Art
I think these are really good books. They have scripture verses. I memorized each one of them. I recommend reading these. I hope you enjoy. They are hiliarious books and there are serious parts. Well if you read these books, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. [Series: Elsie Dinsmore #1]   posted Jun 7, 2004

Cover ArtConfessions of an ugly stepsister
by Maguire, Gregory
This book is amazing. It had me hooked from the beginning. It tells the story of Cinderella from the younger ugly stepsister's point of view. Just like in Wicked, the author takes the so-called "evil" character and tells the story from the point of view none of us ever knew. It made me feel compassion for the stepsister. I loved the book Wicked, but to me Confessions was SO much better. I'd recommend this book to anyone, especially if you love fairy tales.   posted Sep 14, 2005

Cover ArtHarley, like a person
by Bauer, Cat
This book told about a teenage girl who just entered high school. She's convinced that she was adopted, because her parents are nothing like her. She's never seen her birth certificate, because her parent claim to have lost it. She finds a harlequin one day that i signed "Your loving father", but it's not her dad's writing. This is a great book, and i think mot teen girls would like it.   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover ArtMillie's unsettle season : book one of the A life of faith: Millie Keith series,
by Finley, Martha, 1828-1909
I thought these were good books. I think people should read them. They have scripture verses. I memorized each of the verses. I hope you will enjoy them. They are hiliarious, but there are some serious parts. I really recommend reading these books. I hope that if you read them that you will enjoy them. [Series: Life of Faith: Millie Keith #1]   posted Jun 7, 2004

Cover ArtInkheart
by Funke, Cornelia Caroline
This is one of the best books I've ever read, i couldn't put it down. It's a fantasy story about a girl and her father who can read things(including people) out of books. Her father accidently reads a villain named Capricorn out of a book when she's a child, and her mother goes into the book. It's a great story, i recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy stories.   posted Dec 19, 2004
