|Esperanza rising |
by Ryan, Pam Munoz.
Besides the amazing coverart, this book was pretty fantastic. After Esparanza's father dies, her creepy uncles take over her farm in Mexico and try to marry her mother. They escape to America, but since they are immigrants, she is no longer the rich princess she used to be. posted Jun 15, 2010 at 4:43PM
|Maniac Magee : a novel |
by Spinelli, Jerry.
This book had me laughing and crying... I've read it twice, and it's about a boy who has run away from home. posted Jun 15, 2010 at 4:41PM
|Freaky Friday |
by Rodgers, Mary, 1931-
You've maybe seen the movie with Lindsay Lohan, but the book is pretty different. Same plot though, a girl switches bodies with her mother for a day and things go wrong... posted Jun 15, 2010 at 4:40PM
|Jeremy Fink and the meaning of life |
by Mass, Wendy, 1967-
You may not have ever heard of this one, but it's an enjoyable book. A boy sets out to find the keys to a box that his deceased father left him to open on his thirteenth birthday. posted Jun 15, 2010 at 4:39PM
|The lion, the witch, and the wardrobe |
by Lewis, C. S. 1898-1963.
This is a great book. It's also meant for a younger reader, but it can be enjoyed by older people too. The language is very descriptive and the plot and characters are well-written. posted Jun 15, 2010 at 4:38PM
