Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel is the seventh book in the series by Jeff Kinney and it’s the best by far. If you were to get this book it would not be a waste of your time. I would rate this five out of five stars because of how well this story is written. The story starts off with Greg talking about his life before he was born, well not exactly born, but when his mom was pregnant with him. Then it moves on to his toddler life and then it goes back to his current life. One of my favorite moments in the book was the Valentine’s Day dance. Greg has no one to go...

Dreamland Social Club

Dreamland Social Club by Tara Altebrando was such a good book that I couldn’t stop reading it. It all starts with Jane and her older brother, Marcus, inheriting their grandfather’s  house on Coney Island. Coney Island, the once famous but now old beach front neighborhood, was filled with amusement parks like Luna Park and Dreamland, which are long gone. Coney Island also happened to be the birthplace of Jane’s mother and Jane just can’t help thinking of the secrets her mother left behind. With the help of Leo, “tattoo boy”, Jane goes on a journey of discovery and finds out what a great place Coney Island really is. This book is so descriptive about Coney Island that I would...

The Throne of Fire

This interesting book is the second book in the Kane Chronicles and is written by an awesome author, Rick Riordan. At the end of the first book, The Red Pyramid, Apophis is rising and Carter and Sadie decide it’s best to awake Ra, the sun god, so that Ra will defeat Apophis. So to pull this off, they have to collect the three scrolls of Ra, cast the spell, awaken Ra and get him to the palace of the gods. Furthermore, they need to do all of this before the summer solstice (which is in five days). I know, this sounds really hard to do in five days, so will they make it? This is a good book especially...

Troll Fell

The book Troll Fell by Katherine Langrish was a book club selection for my school reading group. In this book, Peer’s dad has died. His nasty Uncle Baulder wants to claim Peer and take him away to use him for labor. When they get to the mill, Peer has to work day and night and gets scraps of food to eat. But then one day, Peer meets a girl named Hilde who is trying to save her family and their farm from being taken by the greedy Uncle Baulder. But that’s not all. Peer has heard some rumors that a troll is getting married to the King’s daughter and needs some servants for the couple. They are willing to...

Middle School Confidential iPad App

The folks over at Electric Eggplant, makers of “Middle School Confidential™”, recently invited us to take a look at their new app for the iPad, “Be Confident in Who You Are: A Middle School Confidential™ Graphic Novel”. Although the title of this interactive comic book is a little on the long side, it is an enjoyable read with a good message. As you would expect with an interactive comic book, there are multiple ways to read it. It works both horizontally and vertically. You can flip through like a normal comic, one page at a time or zoom in and read it one comic pane at a time. I recommend reading it zoomed in, it’s a much better experience,...

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules – Movie

This movie is different from the book but I definitely like the movie better. This movie is the sequel to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and is funnier than the first movie. It’s packed with extreme comedy. In one part of the movie, Craig drops a note in Greg’s locker that says to meet Holly in the locker room. Craig dresses up like Holly as revenge for Greg ignoring him and surprises Greg in the locker room. Another time, Greg is at the roller skating rink and Greg’s mom gets on the loudspeaker and embarrasses Greg. So the story is about Rodrick and Greg learning to get along. Their parents tried a bunch of stuff but in the end,...
