    I just finished reading the book The Disappearance of Emily H. by Barrie Summy and it was a thrilling, suspenseful story about a girl named Raine who has the power to see memories that were left in the place that the memory took place. She see’s the memories as the form of sparkles and can only see them if she grabs them, which can get pretty awkward. But Raine soon hears about a girl her age who had went missing not too long ago, and lived in her house that she just moved into. Raine realizes that using her power to see memories, she might be able to find out what happened to Emily. This book was one of my favorites, which is why I think others should read it too!

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Thanks for another fabulous review. So glad you liked the story too. It would be neat if Barrie Summy wrote another book with Raine as the main character.

  4. Sour Patch Kid says:

    My favorite book this year is Trouble Don’t Last. It’s about a slave boy named Samuel who lives with Harrison, a cranky old slave, who helped to raise Samuel when his mother was sold. One day Harrison decides to escape with Samuel. He brought a sack full of stuff they “might” need. Like a bonnet, food, a cap, and much much more. In this suspenseful book, Samuel will find out about his past, and his future.

    My book that I read is called LOVE, LUCAS by Chantele Sedgwick. It is not a series and you can find it in our school library. I recommend it to people that like relationship books and (those who) like Chantele Sedgwick. My book is about a girl named Oakley Nelson who lost her brother Lucas to cancer and her parents and she are all very depressed but her mom and dad are fighting a lot and can’t seem to work things out so they move down to California to live with her aunt Jo. When she moves down there her aunt Jo’s house is right by the ocean so Oakley likes to go down to the beach. One day when she’s down there she meets a surfer named Carson Nye. She and Carson become really good friends and hang out almost every day. Then he starts to have a crush on her so he asks her out on a date to go to the pier. Then many more dates after that. He teaches Oakley to surf and Oakley teaches him to play the guitar since she plays the guitar. One day when they were surfing together a shark bumped Oakley off her surfboard then Carson went to try and help her, but when he was trying to help her the shark bit his leg off, and then… (I’ve left off the end of this review from, -Mrs. P.)

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Thanks for the great review, Starbucks. I bet this book will be more popular than ever before thanks to your review. Keep them coming!

    This quarter I read Popularity Papers #3. The series is about two girls named Julie and Lydia. They write and illustrate in their diary. In the third book, their friend Sukie who lives in New York, looses her mother due to cancer. Also, after months of living in the UK, Lydia moves back to America. Then Lydia and Julie make a bucket list. Only they don’t call it a bucket list. They call it a trunk list. Then they attempt to do those things. I think that anyone who likes Dork Diaries would like this series because they are very alike, only in Popularity Papers there is color and it is written by 2 people (the main characters).

    Paper things By Jennifer Jacobson
    After Ari’s mother died four years ago, her last wish was that they (Ari and her older brother) would always stay together and that Ari would go to Carter, the middle school for gifted, but when forced to choose between staying with her guardian and being with her big brother, Ari chose her big brother. There’s just one problem—Gage doesn’t actually have a place to live. So now they have to crash with friends to sleep and eat also stay.
    This book is recommended for people who like realistic fiction. And I really liked the book because it was inspiring.

  8. LiL Putty says:

    I read the book The Crossover by Kwame Alexander. The two main characters in the book are twin brothers named Josh and Jordan. They both have nicknames Josh’s nickname is filthy and Jordan’s nickname is J.B. They both are on a basketball team and the name of thier team is Wildcats. Their dad was a former basketball player, so he teaches them some moves. But thier dad has diabetes (I think) and he went up for a dunk and dropped. Now Jordan and Josh have a big championship. I think people who like sports should read the book The Crossover.

    You Don’t Know Me, by David Klass

    This book is about John (the main character) that lives with a guy who is not his father because something happened to his father, and he gets hit by the man that lives with him when ever his mom isn’t home. Also John is basically a mystery kid cause you don’t know anything about him in the beginning of the book but you start to figure it out as you read on.

  10. LizzyChow118 says:

    The Wanderer, written by Sharon Creech was originally published in 2000. It’s a novel and is not part of a series. Sharon Creech is a fantastic author and has written many great books, but The Wanderer is my favorite of them all. This book is about a 13-year-old girl named Sophie who is going to sail across the Atlantic ocean to England to see her Bompie [grandfather]. Sophie is going to travel with her two cousins Cody and Brian, and her three uncles, Mo (Cody’s dad), Stew (Brian’s dad), and Dock (Sophie’s uncle). Will they make it across the ocean unscathed or will the ocean swallow them whole? I recommend this book to people who like realistic fiction and fictional books about sailing because The Wanderer is realistic fiction about sailing.

  11. Turtleislife11 says:

    Also Known As Harper by Ann Leal
    Harper is a poet. She was named after her mom’s favorite writer, Harper Lee. And her life is giving her a lot to write about. Her dad got up and walked out leaving them with to many bills and not enough money. Then Harper’s family gets evicted. And Harper has to stay home to take care of her little brother Hemingway. Their whole life could get turned right around if Harper makes a choice. Her school is holding a poetry contest and she wants to enter that contest more than anything and read her poetry out loud. I would recommend this book to people that like realistic fiction books.

    This book is called Diary Of A Wimpy kid The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney. Jeff also has many other books in the series. Such as The Ugly Truth, Hard Luck, Old School, The Last Straw, Double Down, and many more. I like this book because its main character Greg Heffley just goes for everything and doesn’t let anything get in his way. Also, there are movies of the series, but since Double Down is the newest one they are working on a movie. Now getting back to the Third Wheel. It starts when Greg is a baby and he is talking about how good his memory is and says that his memory is so good he remembers before he was born. After that part Greg’s school fundraised and got a lot of money so the student council of his school came up with the idea that since it was February they thought of throwing a Valentine’s Day dance and the girls were treating it as a middle school prom and so Greg was looking for someone to go with, but no one wanted to go with him so he bought this thing called Culture Grams and bought a lot to make him look good. He then finds a girl and takes her to the dance, and unfortunately he doesn’t know how to dance so he just held her hand and swayed it back and forth. That is my Quarter #2 Book Talk Book.

  13. Itz Mac Chicken says:

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old School by Jeff Kinney is about Greg going without electronics for 48 hours. So he had to go to a camp and their were these rumors about this guy and a warehouse and it was like all boarded up. And every time Greg hears about it it gives hime the chills. And when Greg went to the “WareHouse” it looked like a normal looking house. But inside it was shovels, a shower, and a toilet with toilet paper. The guy’s name was Silas Scratch. One of the rumors was the only way he survived was by eating berryies. And Greg’s dad was the one who made the rumors. So Greg’s dad told him the whole story. “He was in line to go to the bathroom and there was only one stall so he ran and found a warehouse and he wanted all to him self.” So he made all those rumors and they be lived him. That is my summary of Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old School.

    Title: Paper Things
    By: Jennifer Richard Jacobson

    This book is about Ari a young girl who is ten years old and Gage nineteen years old their mother died four years ago and now they live with Janna their godmother.
    Gage wants to move out and Gage said he did have a place to stay so Ari follows suit because of their mom said for her final wishes stick together they end not having a place and they struggle to find anywhere to stay or eat.

    I think this book makes think of the past I also can relate to being homeless.

    I recommend this book to has ever fallen on hard times or struggles in school.

  15. HT says:

    Have you ever been in such a jam you just decided to quit? That is not what Samuel Skiff Beamen did in The Young Man And The Sea written by Rodman Philbrick. Skiffy did not cry, give up, or quit when his father would not help him fix the sunken Mary Rose, the boat Mr. Woodwell built for Skiffy’s dad. Skiffy worked with Mr. Woodwell to raise the sunken Mary Rose. When the Mary Rose was risen, Skiffy had to get a repair man to come look at the engine. When they were told how expensive the boat engine repair was going to be, Skiffy came up with a plan to catch lobsters to raise the money. That’s when he saw blue finned tuna that he could sell for even more money than the lobsters. The Young Man and the Sea is a great book for learning to never give up and that even if nobody helps you, you can still get things done. Also, reading Young Man made me feel there are bigger things in life than your goals. I think reading Young Man will change people’s feeling of what it means to never give up.

    A Night Divided is book by Jennifer A. Nielsen, the book was published in August 25th 2015. The book is about a girl named Gerta who has been trapped by the Berlin walls. She finds her family divided because of the Berlin walls. Her and her brother Fritz must tunnel underneath The Death Strip in order to escape, but she has to be careful not to get caught by the Stasi. I think people who like thrillers will find this a VERY interesting book to read and or listen to. I think this is an amazing book and I would DEFINITELY read this again! Five stars for me!!

  17. Mr.FuzzyPants says:

    Ice Dogs is a good book so far. I hope to read more of it. You might like it I know I do.

All of this is so Raspberry doesn’t have to face the haunting fact of living on the streets again.

We like this book because the things that happen in the story make you want to read more. It has eye catching moments, and it has interesting views from the character in the story. It makes you feel like you’re in the situation, and you have to read more so you can find out what happens to you because the story is so realistic.

  19. EMETA 12-14 says:

    What would you do if you had to be put into a public middle school after being home schooled by your hippy grandmother for your whole life? That’s what happened to Capricorn Anderson in the book Schooled by Gordon Korman. Capricorn’s grandmother, Rain, fell out of a tree while picking plums and can no longer take care of Capricorn, so he is forced to go to a public school. While being tricked by Zach Powers, who he thought was his friend, he got elected school president. Capricorn makes lots of new friends and learns a lot about the outside world.We enjoyed this book because it has amazing life lessons. We hope you will have the chance to read the book Schooled because it’s an amazing peice of inspiring work. This book will make you want to keep reading.

    Imagine living in fear of not having a permanent home or not having enough money to buy what you need to survive. That’s what Raspberry Hill and her mother are going through in the book Money Hungry by Sharon G. Flake. Raspberry would do anything legal to earn money so that she and her mom can get a permanent home. Raspberry is obsessed with collecting money; sometimes she even scams people of their money. After selling rotten chocolate, Raspberry is banned from selling things in school. She soon starts missing school to go work for a friend. After Raspberry and her mother are robbed, Raspberry has to start collecting money over again. Not only is this book captivating and fast-paced, but the characters are well-developed and relatable to real life situations because the problems displayed can occur in anyone’s life. In our opinion, this book is nothing short of an amazing read. Go check this book out!

  21. CM 12-14 says:

    How would you feel if overnight you became a loser at school,an archenemy to an old friend,and a juvenile delinquent? That is what happens to Brett McCarthy, the main character in Brett McCarthy: Work In Progress by Maria Padian. Brett and a couple of her friends pull a prank on Bob Levesque’s mom, and it makes a big impact in her life. Brett is going through a rough time with everything going on at school, her Nonna being sick, and her getting suspended. At the end of the story Brett’s Nonna dies, and now she has to face it that she is gone. I thought this was an amazing book. I like how the author made little problems throughout the story. I also really liked how she gave the definition to the vocab. word of the chapter. I liked it because if you are not sure what the word mean’t, it would tell you. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good book, and I hope you have a chance to read it.

  22. KLKV 4-6 says:

    Middle school can change everything because it can redefine someone. The main character in Brett McCarthy: Work in Progress by Maria Padian can relate to this statement. Brett McCarthy is a vocabulary wiz, an excellent soccer player, and a good friend, until the prank that changed her life. Brett got in trouble which ruined Brett’s reputation at her middle school. This made Brett a loser at school, an enemy to Jeanne Anne, and friendless. Not to mention, she’s a juvenile delinquent because of her actions she made during the story. The story has different things that you can relate to, and it’s filled with many emotions that Brett expresses through her own words. This story taught us new life lessons that we can use throughout our life. During the story, she teaches the reader new vocabulary and different ways to react to certain problems. By the end of the story, Brett was ‘redefined’ in her own special way. After you read this book, you’ll learn that your own life is a work in progress.

  23. KE 4-6 says:

    Have you ever felt like you can not be trusted and are completely friendless? Well, meet Brettina McCarthy a.k.a. Brett McCarthy, the main character of Maria Padian’s Brett McCarthy:Work in Progress. She went from best soccer star in the school to almost everybody’s enemy in one night. One day she is blasting a bazooka with her grandmother, and the next she is chasing her to their island. Although there is some brief/mild language, it is still a great book. Brett’s life is not your typical school, homework, T.V., popcorn kind of life. There are twists and turns that will make you laugh and cry. With a bazooka blasting grandmother and a genius best friend, life is not always normal at the McCarthy house. Although sometimes the book jumps from one topic to another, we would recommend giving it a go because of the heartwarming details, the mind bobbling vocabulary, and the love for one another.

  24. AAJ 4-6 says:

    Have you ever felt like you’re untrustworthy? Well, meet Brett McCarthy, the main character of Maria Padian’s Brett McCarthy: Work In Progress. One (prank phone) call ruins her entire reputation. She went from the best soccer player in the school to almost everyone’s enemy in one night. She goes from eating lunch with her friends to eating lunch with the principal. When Nonna (her grandmother) was healthy, she was happy and fun. When she became sick, she is a completely different person. This book is heartbreaking because Brett loses both her friends and her future. This book makes you think because Brett has some serious situations that go on in her life. If you like books that are dramatic, then this book is for you.

  25. WZRCC 4-6 says:

    Can you imagine if you had been arrested multiple times for driving by the age of 13? Capricorn Anderson is the main character of Schooled by Gordon Korman and has an unusual lifestyle! First off Cap gets transferred to a public school which he has never been to, and he has a hard time making friends. Zach Powers, the popular kid of Claverage Middle School, thinks that Cap is stupid because he’s a hippie, so Zach thinks he can take advantage of him. Capricorn has a very bizarre way of seeing the world. He realizes that you can lose something in a matter of seconds because he lost his parents at a really young age. And he has to live with his grandmother. Schooled is well written because it is very descriptive and has powerful wording. This book is great for learning life lessons. It teaches you that you have to be thankful for the things you have. We thought that Schooled by Gordon Korman was the book to read because it’s really funny and had very intense moments and makes you laugh.

  26. AJMSM 1-3 says:

    Counting by 7’s was a great book. It taught us a lot about life and how it isn’t always fair. This book is by Holly Goldberg Sloan. It is about a young girl named Willow Chance. She is a young genius and a little strange. Willow entered her first day of school and had a test in science. She got every single question correct but was titled as a cheater. Willow started counseling and met some very interesting individuals. She ended up befriending Dell Duke, Mai, and Mai’s brother, Quang Ha. Something happened to her parents while she was on her way home from counseling. Willow began to see something wrong. We liked how the story began because in the beginning it uses her problem as a hook for the reader. We also liked how the author worded the book and created the events. The book gives the readers a lot to think about life and how it can go from something good to a big problem. As we continued reading we didn’t want stop. The book drew us in from each day we read it. We hope you decide to read this book, and we think you will like it as much as we did.

    Have you ever wanted something so badly that you sold things that had gone bad and that were just something that you could buy at a store? In the book Money Hungry by Sharon G.Flake, a girl named Raspberry Hill goes out of her way to get money so she doesn’t have to have the fear of living on the streets again. Her mother’s new job keeps Raspberry away from her mother even longer than what she was used to. When things go wrong, Ms. Hill throws most of Raspberry’s money out the window. Then out of the blue something completely unexpected happens. Someone takes their t.v., couch, and the rest of Raspberry’s money. They even brake the lock to her house!! Then Raspberry and her mother end up having to sleep on the floor in a house that Raspberry’s mother wants to buy. I think this story has some very emotional moments like when Raspberry’s house gets robbed, but also something funny like when Ja’nae is just doing so much and acting so strange in the senior home. This story is a great book to read when you have a quiet place to sit and a little bit of time. If you are looking for a good book to read next, this would be a good thing to choose.

    • Pinnapplemomo says:

      That sounds like a great book I’m gonna check it out at the library next week.

      • Mrs. Patterson says:

        Great Pinnapplemomo! Let us MM know what you think of the story. Bangor H.S. has the sequel, which I really need to just get for our library. It’s called Begging for Change.

  28. Mr.FuzzyPants says:

    I think the typical is right

  29. Ella Hu. says:

    Splendors and Glooms. By Laura Amy Schlitz.
    If anyone likes a mystery, and some magic then this is a book for you. Takes place in London in the 1860’s. About a girl who is kidnapped and found by two orphaned children and a witch. Grief stricken parents and secrets intertwine to make this a fantastic read.

  30. Connor L. says:

    Hey guys, I have recently read The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier. This is an amazing book about a boy named Jerry and his high school, Trinity. Trinity is a christian school where there is a gang called the Vigils who make up “assignments” and pick random students to do them for them. They are pretty much crimes to the school that the teachers look down upon. Jerry has a pretty tough life at home and at school with football and the Vigils especially when the school starts selling chocolates, I wouldn’t want to spoil the rest for you but it’s a great read and a very enjoyable story.

    *The book Ice Dogs *
    I loved reading the book Ice Dogs because I do not know what it is about the title of the book but i just thought that the title was interesting and also i love dogs so anything that has dogs in it i will read. Also I thought that the book would be interesting when I read the title and also to me the book was really interesting. When I read the book I kind of just got into a trance and ignored everything around me. When I read the introduction and also the first page I was really intrigued in reading the rest of the book. The end of the book was great and I also just liked the book because it was a good book and when we skyped with the author Terry Lynn Johnson that was a really cool adventure,after we finished the skype with Terry Lynn Johnson I was more interested in reading more/the rest of the book.

    ps. it was a good book and also thanks to Mrs. Patterson for getting the amazing book and also taking in ideas for new books.

  32. Lexus 215 says:

    The book “Ice Dogs” would be a good movie because it has so much like action and nerve wrecking parts, I don’t want to spoil the book but my favorite part is when the ice breaks and they try to get out of the river water without freezing to death.

    This book is great for people that like dogs that race and do mind about what is going to happen next, like are they going to make it? Or are they going to die out there? It is a very good book, if they make a movie that will be great!

  33. Cassidy 210 says:

    A book that I really liked was Ice Dogs. Its by Terry Lynn Johnson. Its about a girl that is a musher and she gets lost with her dogs when going to a guys house to buy a new dog. She really wanted to get a new dog and win the next race. Something exciting happened to when on her way to the guys house. I think that this book was really good.

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Glad you liked Ice Dogs! I was breathless during some parts of the story… ack! I’d be happy to find other outdoor adventures for you if you’re interested!

  34. CatScratch747 says:

    If you’re looking for a book that will not only make you laugh, but keep you guessing till the end, then have I got a title for YOU! Read Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage.

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      What a great book! Don’t forget to read the next two: Ghosts of Tupelo Landing, and The Odds of Getting Even.

  35. SpeedReader135 says:

    I read the Origami Yoda books– not all of them just the first 4 finishing up on the 5 now. I believe that there is something about these books, i can’t explain it, they are like magnets to me. I love these types of books. I mean there is some mystery like is Origami Yoda just a 2nd personality of the (character) Dwight or something more? All i know is you should be read these books.

  36. Camrin O says:

    When I was at home I read Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School by Jeff Kinney. From the series Diary of a Wimpy Kid. And the whole series is to tech kids not to Bully and what to do if you’re getting bullied. I like the series because it is kind of funny and the pictures show what is happening. If you like realistic books about middle school you would like this series.

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Hey Camrin,
      Thanks for your book review! We have loads of other authors who write stories like Jeff Kinney. I hope you will try James Patterson, Middle School: the worst years of my life series, or his other series, I Funny.
      Let me know if you need help finding them in the Library!

  37. Twinkle0122AJ says:

    The book I read was “Drums,Girls and Dangerous Pie” (by Jordan Sonnenblick). It’s a REALLY good book. It’s about a boy named Steven and he takes drums lessons and likes a girl named Renee and he has liked her for a LONG time. Anyway, Steven’s little brother has a sickness that I’m not going to tell you because I want you to figure it out your selves.
    Read it 😀

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Jordan Sonnenblick is a fantastic author. My favorite is Zen and the Art of Faking It.
      Keep those reviews coming. You’re a great writer!

  38. Midori E. says:

    I read drama by Raina Telgemeier and it is about a girl named Callie and she working on a stage crew for a play Moon over Mississippi and she has a hard time making props. When she finishes the props she gets happy then she uses the prop and it works but if she try’s again to make the prop work it does not work and she has to start all over every day. I recommend it to girls because the main character is a girl and it is all about her and I recommend it because I thought that it was a great book.

  39. Tyler H. says:

    I like the whole series of Diary of a wimpy kid and hopefully there is a lot more books because Jeff Kinney is a great author I love his series diary of a wimpy kid so if you like drama and road trips with family and friends then you would love this series. I like this series because it’s a really interesting series and I think if you read these books you wont stop reading! I would rate this book 9 stars out of 10. And I hope you have fun reading!

  40. Ryan w. says:

    The author of The Batboy is Mike Lupica. This book is a fiction book and I would rate it a five because I really enjoyed reading this book.I think that boys would like it more but if there are girls that like baseball then this book would be good for them.The reason I love this book because theres a lot to do with baseball and I love baseball and this is my second year playing baseball.

  41. Cassidy F. says:

    I read the book Walk Two Moons the author is Sharon Creech. I recommend this book to people who like some adventure and a little bit of mystery. A thirteen year old girl travels from Ohio to Idaho with her grandparents and tells a story about Phoebe Winterbottom they got odd mysterious messages and then later on her mother disappears and meets a very odd “potential lunatic” they call him. Salamanca the thirteen year old girl can relate to Phoebe because she tells Phoebe along the way that her mother just left one morning and Salamanca is hoping that her mother will return.

  42. Madison N. says:

    What secrets is her family keeping? Dogtag Summer is by Elizabeth Partridge. This book is about two friends trying to figure out the secrets this girls family is keeping. I like this book because of the excitement and adventure. I really thing that whoever likes excitement and adventure would like this book. This book does not have a series. This book falls in the fiction category.

  43. Aidan H (Shady3pto) says:

    I have been reading a book called The Rookie Bookie by L. Jon Wertheim and Tobias Moskowitz. It’s about a kid named Mitch Sloan who bets on football games with his partner Jamie. Then one day Jamie loses her notebook that has all the bets in it, when the teachers find out and everyones favorite teacher starts acting all weird. I liked this book and I think people would like it to if they like sports or like a funny book.

  44. Bradyh says:

    I read a good book by James Patterson called Public School Superhero. It was made in 2015. I recommend this book to anyone who likes funny books with a lot of drawings and pictures. If you do, you will love this book. It is about a kid named Kenny Wright that goes to a horrible school in Washington DC He always imagines being a superhero named Stainlezz Steel that stands up to everyone at the school that bullies him in real life. He lives with his very strict grandmother who also babies him at the same time. He loves to play chess, and he has to teach someone he really doesn’t like how to play. Kenny also has to speak out for his school, and he has no idea what to say. I recommend this book to anyone who likes funny books with a lot of drawings and pictures. If you do, you will love this book.

  45. Evanm says:

    Have you ever heard of the book FourMile by Watt Key? Did you now this book was a Maine student book award? You should go read this book if you like realistic fiction and violence. Because it’s about a boy named Foster and he knows that his mother’s boyfriend is up to no good. Then one day he was painting a fence when out of nowhere a strange man comes into sight. Then he said that he thinks Dax (the boyfriend) is up to no good to. I think boys would like this book better.

  46. Renegade says:

    In my ELA class we are having the book Three Times Lucky (by Sheila Turnage) read to us. I have already read the book, and I love it. It is about a young girl named Mo, who has always been lucky. She lives with the Colonel and Miss Lana, and when one day detective Joe Starr blows into town announcing a murder, in a town close by. Is it a coincidence that later someone who’s boat was stolen and was giving a big reward away, is murdered? Find out! I would really recommend it!!

  47. Kimberly says:

    Have you ever read Dear John by Nicholas Sparks? I think someone who loves love stories and the army, and stories about war then this book is for you!

    The book is about a girl and a guy in love, but can’t kept it real if he is gone in war and might not come back. Not a normal love story and if you don’t like sad stories I would prefer you not to read it.
