Wonder / by Palacio, R. J.

Publication: New York : Alfred A. Knopf, 2012 . 315 p. ; 22 cm. Date: 2012

This is a really entertaining and interesting story that makes you think about human nature. It is a funny and meaningful story about friendship. _Wonder_ made me think a lot about how we ALL judge people based on how they look. It's interesting that since we never see Auggie, we have the chance to get to know him without judging him on his looks. All the other characters in the book don't get to meet him that way.

Saving Shiloh / by Naylor, Phyllis Reynolds

Publication: New York : Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 1997 . 137 p. ; 21 cm Date: 1997

Saving Shiloh is the third book in the Shiloh series. I would recommend reading the other books before reading this book because the story would not make sense. Saving Shiloh is about a kid named Marty, and he lives in a place called Shiloh. His neighbor, Judd Travors is a mean old man who owns a ton of hunting dogs, he hunts in places where it is illegal, and he treats his dogs unfairly. One day, Marty finds the nice, new dog that Judd just got. He keeps the dog for a while, and is nice to him. Judd is angry about this and makes Marty work for many weeks, doing Judd's jobs. Finally, Marty gets the dog.

Walk two moons / by Creech, Sharon.

Publication: New York : HarperCollins, 1994 . 280 p. ; 21 cm. Date: 1994

Walk Two Moons is a story about a young girl named Salamanca. She is traveling to Idaho to visit her mother's grave. Along the way, she tells her grandparents about her friend named Phoebe. Her grandparents are very fond of Phoebe and want Sal to tell them more. At a stop they get into a river, to cool off and Sal's grandmother gets bitten by a snake. They take her to a hospital to get treated, and she is in there for several days. All ends well, but to learn how it ends well I would suggest reading the book. If you like unexpected events, and adventurous books then this is the book for you. Added 05/02/2011 by Lyrit

Nature Girl / by Kelley, Jane

Publication: New York : Random House, 2010 . 239 p. : 22 cm. Date: 2010

This book is about a girl named Megan. As usual she is going to Vermont with her family for the summer. Her friend Lucy promised to come with them but her mom had just found out that she has cancer. Her parents won't let her watch TV, so all Megan will do is sit and stare at the blank screen. Finally her parents send her on a trail with her older sister Ginia and Ginia's boyfriend Sam. Megan gets lost and decides to go to Lucy's Grandmother's house, where Lucy is staying. Throughout the book you sort of have to feel sorry for her because she is a city girl out in the country. I would never want to be in that situation. Added 05/02/2011 by Samantha

The Hatchling: Guardians of Ga'Hoole - Book 7 by Lasky, Kathryn.

Publication: New York Scholastic Inc. 2005 24 Date: 2005

The Hatchling is an amazing story about a young owl named Nyroc. Nyroc was hatched into a world of evil. His parents were the worst owls imaginable. Even worse, he looked exactly like his mother so wherever he went he was feared by all. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure or animal books. (If you like this book, you might be interested in the rest of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series, though this book makes sense, even if you haven't read the books before this one.)
