Title: Blood Red Road Reviewed by: Angie Sun Age: 14 This book starts off as a tragedy, when Saba's father gets killed by the Tontons, but they also kidnap Saba's twin brother Lugh. Eighteen-year-old Saba is left in shock with her nine year-old sister Emmi. Saba soon finds hope and sets off to find her beloved twin.
I loved this book. When I first picked it up, I couldn't put it down.
The writer explained everything in such detail, that it makes the reader feel like they're a character in the story.
Title: Horten's Miraculous Mechanisms Reviewed by: Kevina Li Age: 10 This book is about a boy named Stuart who moves to Beeton, where his father was born. He discovered clues that lead to his great uncle's secret workshop using some three pences he found.
I like this book because there's lots of mystery and magic involved and there are a lot of events before the conclusion came.
Title: Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters Reviewed by: Theresa Mah
Age: 9 This book is about a boy named Percy Jackson. Percy's Grade 7 year has whizzed by and no monsters have attacked. But what Percy doesn't know is that Camp Half-Blood's protective borders are dying. So is the pine tree... I like this book because it talks about friendship and brotherhood.
On the last day of school, during PE, something strange happens. Monsters appear and threaten Percy! It gets more strange when Annebeth Chase tells Percy that Camp Half-Blood's protection is slowly withering, all because Thalia's pine tree has been poisoned. Meanwhile, Grover Underwood, Percy's best friend is also in big trouble! Percy has two big things to save and a million of tinier things to save!
