Book Review - By Noah

Title - The Emerald Atlas

Author - John Stephens

Rating - 5 out of 5

I liked the book because it had adventure, fantasy, and it leaves you waiting for the next part.  I would recommend this to my dad because he likes fantasy and adventure.

The three kids are orphans and their parents left them. They are moved from one orphanage to another when finally they end up in Cambarage Falls. There are no kids, no people except for the people at the house. They find a book and put a picture in it and get taken to the time when the picture was taken. They find a witch and they have to get a special book to defeat the witch. On their adventure they meet giants and dwarfs.



Book Review - By Ashton

Title - Tales of Beedle the Bard

Author - J.K. Rowling

Rating - 2 out of 5

Recommendation - No

I liked the stories in the book like the tale of the 3 brothers. I disliked how the book was so short. The characters include Harry Potter, Ron Weasly, Hermoine Granger, and Albus Dumbledore. In the past I've read Harry Potter books.

Book Review - By Nathaniel

Title - Confessions of a Murder Suspect

Author - James Patterson

Rating - 4 out of 5

Recommendation - Yes


This book was confusing to me at first. Then, one explanation after another, things started to make sense. I will admit the murder in the book didn't make any sense.  Who would kill them?  Why? These questions were (of course) answered at the end of the book. I think that this book was great in its own special way. For one it was nothing like other books I've ever read in a good and bad way (but mostly good, don't get me wrong) but I'll admit I was a little inpatient with the book mostly because it was very slow to explain. But anyway I've been talking way to much and main thing is: I loved this book.
