A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle


Three kids must conquer the Black Thing in order to save their father and Earth.  A book that is hard to describe.  With space travel, aliens, (in a way) and scenarios that make you stop and think. Great. A 5-star classic. --Silver, homeschooled
Wild Magic by Cat Weatherill


"Wild Magic is a book of a magical land of elves but starts out in our world with a cave leading there.  It's full of unexpected twists and turns, and excitement, but has a calming end." --Natasha, Ocean Breeze Baptist School, Grade 7

Slasher Girls and Monster Boys edited by April Genevieve Tucholke


All the short stories were SO GOOD!  --Kimberly, Neahkahnie Middle School, Grade 7

Cesar's Way by Cesar Millan


A book that tells all you need to know about dog psychology, exercise, discipline, affection, and issues. All told by the best dog rehabilitator in the world. Great. A 5-star book. Cesar Millan understands dogs to their fullest. --Silver, homeschooled
Shadowshaper by Daniel José Older

"The book hooked me right away so I kept reading.  The book was full of adventures and mysteries.  I love books like this one!"  --Lily, Neahkahnie MIddle School, Grade 7

The Land of Stories:  A Grimm Warning by Chris Colfer


A well-balanced book full of twists and turns, well-timed humor, action, an under current of mystery, well-defined characters,and interesting historical facts mixed into a fantastical story.  Good--I would give it four stars. --Silver, homeschooled
The Oceans between Stars by Kevin Emerson


A fight for humanity's survival, with aliens, suspense, action, and time-travel, resting on the shoulders of two kids. With an eventful ending. Not as quick-paced as the first book; "Last Day On Mars," but still a good book. I would give it a 4-star rating. --Silver, homeschooled

Now Penny will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.
