Title: The Society’s Traitor
Author: V.K. Finnish
Rating: 5 stars
The Society’s Traitor is about Arthur Grey who is 11 years old and loves adventures, but he’s banned from looking for treasure by the housekeepers and his grandma Mrs. Grey who he lives with. But Arthur gets to go on an adventure anyway. He goes through a transportal and lands in Peru. He learns about poachers who are trying to capture a magical creature called a Pichitanka. He has to help save the magical bird before the mean poachers steal it.
   I liked this book because it was adventurous and I like adventures. It was fun to read. I especially liked the part where Arthur got in some trouble with goblins when he was on a hike. I thought Gamble was very mean because he’s always taking away stuff. I also really liked the end part of the book where Arthur has his biggest adventure.
   Ages 8 and above should read this book. Girls and boys who like adventures, treasure hunting, mysteries, and magic would like this book.

Title: Miri Attwater and the Ocean’s Secret
Author: E.S. Ivy
Rating: 5 stars
The main character of this book is Miri Attwater. She’s a mermaid, but doesn’t know it yet. She has to go on a boat trip instead of going to camp and she doesn’t want to. She hates trying new things, but she has to and she finds out some of them are actually great–like being a mermaid. She goes on an adventure in an underwater bubble world.
   Miri Attwater and the Ocean’s Secret was an awesome book and I want to read the next one. I like mermaids and I loved the bubble world in the book. This book was adventurous; it was sad in some parts and some parts were funny.
   I think girls who like princess stories and mermaids will love this book.

Title: The Discoveries of Arthur Grey: The Society’s Traitor
Author: V.K. Finnish
Rating: 5 stars
The Society’s Traitor is a fast paced mystery/adventure book. It is about Aurthur Grey, an eleven-year-old boy who seeks treasure. It begins with a small mystery and ends with Aurthur protecting a whole establishment of gold!
   The mystery in the book is suspenseful and unpredictable always leading you in the wrong direction, which is perfect. I never predicted the end and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
   I recommend this book for ages up to 12 or 13.

Title: Wait Till Helen Comes
Author: Mary Downing Hahn
Rating: 5 stars
Wait Till Helen Comes is about three siblings Molly, Michael, and Heather. Molly and Michael can’t stand Heather. When Heather starts talking to a ghost named Helen she tells her two older stepsiblings that Helen is going to do bad things to them. Then bad stuff start happening to all of them.
  I really liked this book. I liked this book because it was a little bit scary. I like scary movies and scary books. I also liked it because they were all friends eventually. It was a good book because it kept you waiting at the end of every chapter. This is a great book.
  I would recommend this book to everyone. It’s a good boy and girl book. So anyone with a fifth grade reading level should probably read it.

Title:  Charlie Bone and the Hidden King
Author:  Jenny Nimmo
Rating:  5 stars
Charlie Bone and the Hidden King is about a kid who solves mysteries to get him closer to find his dad. When he and his mom, and sister are at he bookstore the people who worked there talked about shadows attacking the people in the bookstore. They always say that the shadows went like that. A book goes flying in and almost knocked sister out. They see shadows start dancing around.
  What I really liked about this book is I like how Charlie protects his little sister. I didn’t like when he got grounded. I didn’t like when his sister goes to some dangerous place.
  I recommend this to Sam because she likes scary stuff. Also she plays Halo 4, also my dad because he is scary. He likes to chase me around like a monster.

Title: My Father’s Dragon
Author: Ruth Gannet
Rating: 2 stars
My Father’s Dragon is about animals on an island who find a baby dragon. The animals force the flying creature to work. They make a ferry over a large river which the little dragon doesn’t like. So he does bad things.
  I didn’t like this book because it was boring. It had barely any detail and it was just really boring.
  I would recommend this book to fourth and third graders. It is really easy so they could probably read it.

Title: Peter Pan
Author: James Matthew Barrie
Rating: 5 stars
Peter Pan is about a girl named Wendy who is going on an adventure of a lifetime but she does not know it yet until she meets a silly boy named Peter Pan. When she meets him she does not know what to do. But Peter wanted her to come with him. She wanted to go but she had to bring along her brothers so they went on for the ride. Peter Pan said the way to get there is to fly. Wendy did not know how to fly but Peter did. When they get there they see Hook a pirate and he is the captain. After their encounter with Hook Peter asks if Wendy wanted to be a lost boy.
  What I like about this book is that it is so adventurous and so phenomenal. What I did not like about this book is that Wendy did not want to be a lost boy because she ran away. I recommend this book to people that have not seen the movie because it is way better.

Title: Runaway Ralph
Author: Beverly Cleary
Rating: 5 stars
Runaway Ralph is about a boy, Garf, who attends summer camp. Ralph experienced summer camp with a dog, a hamster, and many cats. The animals didn’t treat Ralph very nice at the beginning of camp. Ralph was able to make friends with some of the campers. One camper in particular would eventually stop bullying Ralph and come to his rescue.
  I really liked this book due to the adventures I got to experience through Ralph’s eyes. It gave me a new perspective summer camps.
  I would recommend this book to both boys and girls because kids would like the adventures described in each chapter. My favorite character was the dog Sam, my hero, because he protected one of the main characters at the camp. If you are thinking of attending camp, this summer, you might want to read this book.

Title: Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy
Author: Jenny Nimmo
Rating: 5 stars
Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy is about a boy and he solves mysteries. One scene from the book is when Ezekiel turns 100 years old. Charlie has a grandma, a sister, and a mom. His dad has been missing and each mystery Charlie solves  brings him closer to find his dad. That what this book is about.
  I liked this book. I like how he stands up for his sister. I didn’t like is when he starts talking to the ghost, when he gets grounded.
  I recommend this to [anyone who] likes Charlie Bone books. I also recommend this to my little brother, he likes scary stuff. He also likes mysteries.
