Watters, Shannon. Lumberjanes: Indoor Recess

I nearly stopped reading this book when there were huge bugs, but it got better after a few pages, so I kept reading it. And I think that people who like bugs and adventures and mysteries would really like it. I am going to read more in this series to get more context.

Rating: 3



Simpson, Dana. The Unicorn Whisperer: Another Phoebe and Unicorn Adventure

I love this series! The books are graphic novels and are very light hearted and silly, with lots of cheesy puns. But I enjoy its jokes about modern day technology and middle/elementary school with a touch of fantasy! I highly recommend this for someone who enjoys graphic novels or any of the things listed above!

Keplinger, Kody. Lila and Hadley. 

Even though there were flaws, I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down! I read it I two days! And I love the message it put out. To stay strong even when it’s hard.

Rating: 4
