Livy is a girl with her head literally in the clouds, due to a major event that changed her personality and outlook on the world. This book is an amazing story of a girl with special blood that gives her a strange sensation. Filled with mystery and surprise, I highly recommend The White Tower! 5/5 stars!

Lights, Camera, Disaster is about a girl named Hester Greene who has severe ADHD and anxiety. Hess loves making movies. When she has her camera in-hand she can make decisions, and be organized. But with her disorders, doing things that other students would find easy, come extremely hard to her.

Hess has to save her language arts grade or else she won’t be able to pass the eighth grade. If she can’t bring up her grade, she will not be able to move up to high school.

Coming from a kid that has ADHD and Severe Anxiety, Hester Greene is one of the most relatable book characters ever created. I give Lights Camera Disaster a five-star-review. This book is a must-read for anyone who is struggling with conditions like Hess.

Olga we’re out of Here is an awesome work of comedy and fiction in a hilarious form. It’s a great sequel to the first, and I would recommend it. Olga is a girl who found this little creature Meh in a trash can and decided that she wanted to keep it. Olga doesn’t like most humans, and decides she wants to move to wherever Meh is from. But when Meh gets sick, everything changes…

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars, because it was definitely a good read if you’re looking for a quick and hilarious read.

Morse Pond Review: Action Presidents #1

Action Presidents #1: George Washington!Action Presidents #1 George Washington

Fred Van Lente, illustrated by Ryan Dunlavey

 HarperCollins

$9.99

Available January 2018

 

The first of the series Action Presidents, George Washington was entertaining in many ways. Like the title implies, the book is full of action on every page. It tells a pretty full story of George Washington’s life. It was a quick-read graphic novel that I would rate 3.5 stars of 5. I think it is a pretty hard core history book.

This book is full of thrilling action and suspenseful excitement. There are creative characters and backstabbing traitors. Farley Middle School has an amazing mascot that is being plotted against by three harmless children. Those children are not jocks but they think that if they steal the mascot and then give it back like they didn’t steal it they will be able to get what they really want. There is a backfire in the system named Pablo.  I really enjoyed this book told in play format!

Fish In A Tree is an incredible book about a girl who has one unbelievable challenge she has to get through. Ally Nickerson has a case of unidentified dyslexia. She had to make it to 5th grade without anyone even noticing. When her original 5th grade teacher has a baby, a permanent substitute named Mr.Daniels comes. He is the only teacher that realizes that Ally isn’t dumb, she is just different. This book is full of sadness, hope, and even some happiness. If you liked One For The Murphys, or Out Of My Mind you will love this book too. I am really glad that I came across this book. It turned out to be one of my favorite books.
