Crossing Jordan | Adrian Fogelin
post image

The first of what I assume will be many to-reads from abookowlscorner.com book blog. I‘m freaking out that she actually wrote me back to say she‘ll review Shadow Status! Meanwhile, I can‘t wait to dig into one of Naemi‘s elementary school favorites from 2014 Crossing Jordan. #chapterbooks #childrensbooks #middlegrade #kidlit

This is What I Did: | Ann Dee Ellis
post image

While reading “Evermore”, I found this book. It was a quick read, but one that had an impact. At first, it just seemed like an average eight-grade-boy-diary, kinda like the wimpy kid series—I was wrong. It took the darkest turn that I didn‘t expect it to take. Staying up at night to finish it, and when I did,It felt like a blade piercing through my chest. I can‘t say much about it, but I would recommend it to any realistic fiction lovers. :)

Grub spends his nights talking with seed and being a really good friend. One day Seed pops out of the ground and grows to a flower. No cheeseburgers here, just a lovely friendship. It‘s heart springs from the pages, and makes Grub a friend we would all be happy to have.

The Box Turtle | Vanessa Roeder

4 ⭐ This little box turtle was born without a shell. His parents give him a nice cardboard shell that the box turtle loves until someone tells them it is “weird”. A journey to find a new shell ensues, but nothing is quite right. This book is lovely. The pictures are what really make this story. It has been told many times in many ways. You are you, and you are special. The illustrations are what makes a reader keep turning the pages.

7/52: Where We Go From Here: 5/5

This book is about gay men who are learning to deal with life being HIV+. It was cute and showed the ups and downs of dealing with prejudice.

Walking on Trampolines | Frances Whiting

Y‘all this book surprised me with how much I genuinely loved it. I‘m not usually one for a book without some sort of magic or mayhem or monsters in it and this had none, unless you count the subtle golden toned magic of nostalgia but, alas, I do not. It did however make me cry twice, so all in all a rather good book. One I will likely read again

Wonder | R. J. Palacio

Pickpick

August Pullman is a 10 year old boy who has had to undergo 27 surgeries. These surgeries have caused many scars and facial abnormalities causing him to be very self conscious. Due to his insecurities, he has been homeschooled his entire life. He is about to enter 5th grade when his parents make the recommendation that he attends school for his first time. Although he doesn‘t like the idea, he decides to give it a try.

owen.lauzon The change is massive for him and it‘s starts rough but August doesn‘t back down. With the help of his family and friends he is able to navigate his way through the challenges that grade 5 holds. I would recommend this book to anyone who has seen the movie or is looking for a great story. I would rate this book 5/5 stars, I personally thought this book was better then the movie and 4d
owen.lauzon that is a very rare occurrence for me. The book is split into four different parts, each part is written in first person but from a different characters perspective. Each chapter uses the same pronouns but the part‘s title tells you which characters perspective is being displayed. 4d
MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Owen! I would agree, the book is better than the movie in this case! 6/6 3d
