Isabella’s Pick: On Little Wings

On Little Wings is an amazing book about a girl who discovers a family secret and finds herself in Maine to get to the bottom of it. This is an amazing book about family and I highly recommend it.

Pauline’s Pick: The Son of Neptune

The Son of Neptune is about three demigods who become friends and go on a quest to save Camp Jupiter (the roman camp for demigods).  They face death many times, but they use each other’s powers to cover each other’s weaknesses.  I recomend this book because it is thrilling and will keep you on the edge of your seat.  You will love this book!!!

Colby’s Pick: The Maze Runner


Dystopian books have long since caught my attention, but when I found this book I was suddenly interested. I loved following Thomas as in Thomas Edison through his adventure of the maze. In conclusion I found this book very interesting, and suggest it to anyone looking for a great book.

Madeline’s Pick: Spirited Away

Spirited Away is a wonderful and colorful graphic novel about a girl who is trapped in the spirit world. A friendly boy who is familiar with the spirit world helps and tries to get her out. I liked this book because of its fantastic artwork and terrific story line and plot which is all about the perils and dangers this girl faces inside this strange new world.
