    My sister loves the amulet series and so do I. She would love to read it. If I could get it for her, it would make her day!

    Bears of Ice: The Quest of the Cubs is a story about two cubs, first and second, and how they survive without their mother. For multiple generations, polar bears have ruled over the Northern Kingdom. However, a new cult was formed of bears who worship the Ice Clock. They sacrifice bears to the clock. When Roguers decide to take first and second, their mom decides to serve in their place. However, instead she tells her cubs that she is going to the Den of Forever Frost. When the cubs find out that their caretaker is who she seems like, they run away. They encounter many friends and foes on their journey, but also some traitors. This was an interesting book, but I was not hooked into the book. One thing I enjoyed about it was the photographs. It reminded me of the photographs in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, but they were not as life-like. This is not must-read, but a good book none the less. I recommend it for grades 4 and up

    Like the book says, "One friend can make all the difference". This book shows how friendships affect people's lives. Charlotte Lockard and Ben Boxer live more than a thousand miles apart, but are friendly online Scrabble rivals. Ben does not have friends at school, and wishes he had friends to talk to. His parents are also getting divorced, but he does not understand why. Ben also gets bullied at school. Charlotte has a friend, Bridget, but she realizes after a while, that Bridget is not really her friend. At the same time, her father is at the hospital because of a car crash. Throughout the book, both Ben and Charlotte find friends in unexpected people. I liked this book a lot. It shows the reader the importance of friendship, and how friends affect each other. This is a good read for grades five and up.

    awesomessb's book review was featured in The 13-Story Treehouse (The Treehouse Books).
    Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton are world-famous author and illustrator, but have you ever wondered where and how they write there books. They do so in there very own thirteen story treehouse! It has a a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, a secret underground laboratory, and a marshmallow machine that follows you around and automatically shoots marshmallows into your mouth whenever you are hungry. However, they have to create their next book, and they are already late on submitting it. There are many distractions while they try to write this book. This includes a mermaid, sea monkeys, and a giant gorilla. How will they ever finish their book? This was an interesting story. It is not very long, and only took me 10 to 20 minutes to read. However, it wasn't very action packed. It is a good book for ages seven and up.

    awesomessb's book review was featured in Wishtree.
    Red is an 216 year old oak tree. But, there is something that you probably don't know about tress and animals. They can talk! How? Well, it's a "mysterious dance of sunlight and sugar and wind and water". Red is also a wishtree. Many people come in May (but also all year round) to tell Red there wishes. She's heard many ridiculous and sincere wishes. However, when a ten year old muslim girl, Samar, moves into the neighborhood, people aren't very welcoming to her. Her wish is to have a friend. Red decides that she must help her. With the help of a best friend Bongo they might be able to find a friend for Samar. This was a cool book from an interesting perspective. There are many books about trees or animals being able to talk, but I felt this book was very unique. It is written from Red's perspective in a world full of humans. This is a great book for grades four to five and up.
