McDonald, Megan. The Sister’s Club: Rule of Three
This book I have read how many times? Well,ALOT!!! I finally decided to right a review on it! This book makes me smile from ear to ear and freak out just because one of the characters forgot their homework! It is about three sisters who are generally like best friends but the oldest one is like the family actor so when the middle sister wants to try out for a musical because she loves to sing but the older sister is not ok with that. So they end up in a bit of a sticky situation!

Andrews, Ryan. This Was Our Pact
I LOVED this book!!! In this book, there is a group of boys who follow these lanterns every equinox festival, and when they get to weathered face rock, they turn for home. But this year they make a pact. They will follow the lanterns all the way, and see if they really do fly into the stars, like the old song says. Many things happen, but do the lanterns really journey to the stars? Read this book to find out!!!
