I picked up this book not intending it to be horror like. But as I started reading I realised that this book contained every aspect of my favorite genres: friendship, love, family, horror, and some fantasy. My favorite aspect of this book is that, Alexis very rebelious and refuses to belive in haunting’s. she dosn’t follow the trend and most of the school is scared of her. but, i do wish we saw more of her relationship with carter grow.

Wow did I love this book. As a cancer survivor, the story really spoke to me because I felt like the cancer wasn’t even the focus. It normalized a very scary disease. The book was about how despite their illness, they found love. The only thing I would say I didn’t like is John’s very critical attention to detail, which can make the book really long.

The book started out pretty slow, and I didn’t think I was going to like it, but when it picked up, it picked up. I really liked the short stories individually, and when they all came together it was very satisfying. The unique takes on love were so cute and I really loved it.

Coraline

Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell

1 out of 5

I thought that this graphic novel did a poor job of conveying the thoughts and feelings of the main character, Coraline. She never seemed to be passionate about anything. I also thought that she was very unrealistic. When she opens a door and finds that the brick wall that is usually there has vanished and in its place is a long, dark hallway, she decides the best thing to do is to walk down it. I think a real person would have been much more cautious. Then, when she finds two people with black buttons instead of eyes who claim they’re her “other parents”, she seems completely unfazed. Coraline seems like a person who would never exist.

Mibs Beaumont is turning thirteen– and she can’t wait! Thirteen years old is the age when everyone in her family gets their savvy, their special power. Her fourteen-year-old brother, Fish’s savvy is that he can control hurricanes, and her seventeen-year-old brother, Rocket’s savvy is that he can control electricity. So Mibs is looking forward to finding out what her savvy is going to be. But when her father is landed in the hospital after a car accident, a friend from church takes it upon herself to plan Mibs’ party– but she doesn’t know about Mibs’ savvy. The Beaumonts are determined to keep their savvies secret– so a thirteenth birthday party can’t ever happen. Until now. I liked this book and I liked the characters in it, especially Will Junior, Fish and Mibs. I would recommend this book to girls and boys from ages 9-13

The Lost Twin

Sophie Cleverly

4 out of 5

Ivy Gray’s twin sister Scarlet is dead. She died of a horrible sickness while at her boarding school, Rookwood Academy… Or at least, that’s what Ivy’s been told. When one of the teachers from Scarlet’s school comes to Ivy’s house to tell her she has a place at the academy, Ivy is surprised. Then she finds out– she has to pretend to be her sister. From now on, Ivy’s name is Scarlet Gray. And Scarlet has left pieces of her diary hidden around Rookwood Academy as clues for Ivy to find. But what really happened to Ivy’s twin? And can she find out? I liked that this book was a mystery, and I liked that the characters who didn’t like each other became friends in the end. I would recommend this book to girls from ages 8 to 13.

This was a great Autobiography which uses the same amusing material as Dahl’s other books for children. The book lets you peer into somebody’s life which I didn’t think anyone in the world would actually live. Overall it’s a great story to read if you would like to get inspired.
