Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

percy jacksonTitle: Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

Author: Rick Riordan

Star Ranking: **** (Loved it and a 1/2)

Reviewer: Audrey W. (6th grade)

Describe the book in your own words: The book is about Greek gods and their stories.  It talks most about the Olympians or the Titans, demigods, minor gods or monsters. The way I would describe it is that their story isn’t always about violence and drama but instead about jealous and action, and sometimes destruction.

What did you think?: I though it was very exciting and crazy when they would kill or be swallowed by their man-eating dad.  I felt pretty happy and giggly. My favorite parts were when Zeus and the other gods were fighting a giant, but when they got close, the other gods turned and ran like a bunch of cowards.

Who would you recommend it to?: I would recommend it to my BFF because she loves fantasy just like me.

CONGRATULATIONS AUDREY! Audrey submitted three reviews and can now claim a free Stageline pizza. Please stop by the youth services desk to get your coupon by August 31. Thank you to Stageline Pizza for providing prizes for this year’s summer reading program.

Maximum Ride: The Final Warning

lg-maximumRideFourPPBTitle: Maximum Ride: The Final Warning

Author: James Patterson

Star Ranking: ***** (Everybody should read this book)

Reviewer: Penelope L. (6th grade)

Describe the book in your own words: The book is about Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudg, Gazzy, and Angel.  They were once again being tracked by robots. First, they went to Antarctica, and they were helping with global warming. They were taken away to the Uber-Director, and he tried to sell them. Then a category 5 hurricane happens. Last tehy got home to Max’s mom, and Max did a speech about global warming.

What did you think?: My favorite parts were mostly when Max is with her mom.

Who would you recommend it to?: Rosalyn H., Savana B., and Isibella L. (my cousin).

The Quest for the Diamond Sword

QuestTitle: The Quest for the Diamond Sword

Author: Winter Morgan

Star Ranking: *** (Good book)

Reviewer: Hayden M. (6th grade)

Describe the book in your own words: It was about a person named Steve looking for diamonds for a sword and armor because there was a zombie invasion. Steve meets treasure hunters, and he soon becomes friends with the treasure hunters, and they all get diamonds and destroy all the zombies.

What did you think?: I thought it was pretty good for a book that comes from a game and that it was adventurous. One of my favorite parts is when Steve finds diamonds because he gets to help his villager friends.

Who would you recommend it to?: I would probably recommend it to Minecraft lovers.

CONGRATULATIONS HAYDEN! Hayden submitted three reviews and can now claim a free Stageline pizza. Please stop by the youth services desk to get your coupon by August 31. Thank you to Stageline Pizza for providing prizes for this year’s summer reading program.

Slob

slobTitle: Slob

Author: Ellen Potter

Star Ranking: ***** (Everybody should read this book)

Reviewer: Joshua B. (7th grade)

Describe the book in your own words: The story Slob describes a twelve year old boy named Owen Birnbaum. He’s 57% fatter than the average boy, often becomes the butt end of many childish jokes and only wishes to not be bullied. Owen comes from a dark past facing life as an adopted child. He builds a machine called Nemesis from junk found in local demolition sites. This machine will hopefully answer the one question from his past: Who killed his parents? Read Slob to find out if Nemesis works.

What did you think?: While reading Slob, I enjoyed the realistic setting and thoughts of characters. I also liked the ending a lot. My favorite part is when Owen doesn’t let anyone past a door so his friend can run away, because Owen shows heroism. Heroism is fun to read about, because I don’t know any in real life.

Who would you recommend it to?: I recommend this short book to people going through troubles and who need a hero to look up to, because there are a lot of examples that may help. Since this book is short, I think 8 years old and up would prefer it.

CONGRATULATIONS TO JOSHUA! He submitted three reviews and can now claim a free Stageline pizza. Please stop by the youth services desk to get your coupon by August 31. Thank you to Stageline Pizza for providing prizes for this year’s summer reading program.
