The Last Olympian – Book

Percy Jackson and his friends are facing their worst feat yet. Kronos and his army are heading toward Olympus to destroy it. Also, Percy is almost 16 years old and has learned his fate. He will either become a hero or kill the gods and himself. Will Percy rise or fall in his battle? This action-packed story is the fifth book in the Percy Jackson series. My favorite part was when Percy woke up and he was underwater in Poseidon’s Palace. Tyson had brought him to Poseidon in the middle of the war and said something like, “It’s okay brother. Next time we will use a big stick.” You have to read the book to get why this is...

Eleven – Book

Winnie Perry has just turned eleven and is finishing off her fifth grade year. When the new girl, Gail Grayson, shows up at school, she becomes the center of attention and steals Winnie’s best friend, Amanda. The only girl left to be Winnie’s friend is Dinah, the sensitive one. Things just keep getting worse when Winnie ends up with the most disliked boy in her class at an ice-skating party. My favorite part was when Winnie, in a brave moment, tells Gail, “The point is that you are not the boss of things just because you wear a bra!” When the kids around them start laughing, Gail says, “It’s not funny! I said it’s not funny! Anyway, laughing causes...

Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret – Book

Margaret Simon has a strong connection with God even though she doesn’t have a specific religion. She can talk to God about anything. But when Margaret moves from New York to Farbrook, New Jersey, she meets new friends like Nancy, Jamie and Gretchen. They form a secret club where they talk about private subjects like boys, bras and getting their first periods. Will Margaret be able to fit in? I really like this book because Judy Blume is a good author and also because Margaret is around my age and it’s fun to read about a sixth grader. I recommend this book for kids nine or older because they talk about periods, bras and the male reproductive...
