One for the Murphys is a great, realistic book.
After her mom is hospitalized and she is sent to a foster family, Carley feels
out of place. Life at the Murphys’ house is the opposite of when she lived
alone with her mom. The book tells about how Carley’s feelings change, and how
the Murphys go from feeling like someone else’s family to her family. I
recommend One for the Murphys because it’s a great book with
interesting, believable characters.
Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities is a wonderful book. It reads like a comic book,
but without many pictures. Vincent and his pals live in Copperplate City where

involved with Captain Stupendous' fate, his mom gets kidnapped and things go
downhill from there. What happens next? Read the book to find out.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science fiction and super hero

Masque of Red Death has many pros such as a very interesting plot and very good
vocabulary for 7th and 8th grade levels and beyond. The characters are likeable
at most but will anger you sometimes. There are some spelling errors but that is
expected for ARCs and there was a scene where the main character , Araby,
blacks out from drugs in which you don’t know what’s happening. I give this
book personally 4.5 out of 5 stars due to some errors. I recommend this book to
science fiction and romance lovers.
Storm Makers is a fast-paced
adventure novel. Simon and Ruby may seem like normal kids, but all this changes when a stranger appears at their home.
He tells them that Simon is a storm maker - someone who can control the
Now, Simon and Ruby must embark on a perilous quest to stop
another storm maker who has deadly plans. While reading you not only experience adventure and fantasy, you also learn about two
young twins growing apart, and learning how to come back together again.
One thing I liked about this book is that it is very
fast-paced, and you never have a moment of boredom.
I would recommend this book to anyone ages 8-13 looking for
a blend of science and fantasy.
