Serafina and the Black Cloak

 Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

From the publisher: In 1899, a twelve-year-old rat catcher on North Carolina's Biltmore estate teams up with the estate owner's young nephew to battle a great evil and, in the process, unlocks the puzzle of her past.

THIS BOOK IS AN...action-packed family friendly book by the same author as the 2nd one "Serafina and the Twisted Staff." My favorite part is when her and her Pa start home after a frighting night. i recommend this book to any one who loves to read!

Public School Superhero

Public School Superhero by James Patterson

This is a book about a young African American boy who is helping out and teaching chess to another young African American boy. My favorite part was how the boy made friends with some one totally different. Who will like this? Anyone who likes funny sad books.

Esperanza Rising

This book was a full on heart warming story by the author of Riding Freedom.

This book is about a girl in mexico who loved her father but soon some troubling times pass by and her live style would change for ever.

My favorite part in this book is when she finally understands why she's in the place that she is.

If like heart warming stories and family love this is the book for you.

The Lost Hero

This is a Greek mythology book. The main character has lost his memory and must go on an exciting quest to find it. My favorite part was the ending. It ends on a cliffhanger so you'll need to read the next book!

You will love this book if you are interested in Greek mythology like me.
