When Suee Lee goes to a dull new school, something strange starts to happen. When her own shadow comes to life she knows something’s up. Will her shadow take over? What is a zero? You will have to find out in Suee and the Shadow. I would give this book a 5/5 stars. I love the new things that she finds out and could not put the book down. I would read until midnight! I liked how her shadow can only take bullied kids and turn them into a zero.

Wizardmatch is a very good book about a girl in a magical family. In each magical family there is a prime wizard who has most of the magic. Everyone else only has a tiny bit of magic. When the prime wizard gets old, he holds a Wizardmatch to decide who will be the next prime wizard. Lennie notices that all the prime wizards have been men. When her brother is chosen to compete instead of her, she has to work hard to make things fair. If you read The One And Only Ivan you will surely like this book. I loved it.
