    Evan and Jessie Treski will be in the same fourth grade classroom next year, since Jessie will skip a grade. Evan is not really happy with the idea of having his little sister in the same grade, especially because Jessie is the "smart-one" and he's scared of being embarrassed by her. Jessie can't understand why Evan is so mad at her. She is feeling so happy and excited that she'll be in Evan's class next year, because Evan is the "good-at-understanding-people-one" and can help her to fit into the new group. This disagreement between sister and brother will end in The Lemonade War, where the first one to earn one hundred dollars selling lemonade in the 5 days before coming back to school wins. The winner keeps all the money. This is a book full of funny situations and is enjoyable to read. I recommend this story for children in the 8-10 years old range.

    The book Savvy, by Ingrid Law is a wonderful fantasy novel. It's about a girl named Mibs who is turning thirteen, and in her family, turning thirteen means that she will receive her special ability called a Savvy. On her older brother's thirteenth birthday his Savvy was to control electricity, and her other brother named Fish is able to control the weather. Everybody in her family has a Savvy except her dad. Mibs is very excited for her birthday. What will her Savvy be? Will she be strong enough? Ingrid Law is mind blowing! She's an amazing storyteller. Her characters are delightful and interesting. There were many surprisong and interesting twists in this story. I could NOT put this books down. In the end this book left you wanting more! I think that the message of this book is, don't be in a hurry to grow up. In conclusion, this book really interested me, and raised multiple questions in my mind, such as "What would my Savvy be?" and "Would my Savvy be life changing?" I would really recommend this book to elementary students and above.

    Thank you to Dogo books for providing this book in exchange for an honest review. Frank Einstein has invented something he calls the "electro-finger". It uses the magnetic field of the Earth to provide wireless energy. However, T. Edison has been destroying all of the power plants in the area so that his generator will be the only energy source. T. Edison is planning to charge a lot of money for his energy, and wants to take over the world. This book has a lot of cool and interesting facts, diagrams, and illustrations. It was not, however, the most scintillating read. I got a little bored, but I think that this would be a great educational read for 3rd or 4th graders.

    Thanks to Dogobooks for providing this book in exchange for an honest review. Stonebird, by Mike Revell, is a beautiful story about relationships, decisions, redemption, and kindness. Stonebird is written from the point of view of Liam. Liam has just moved to a new town to be near his grandmother who is suffering from dementia. He misses his friends, and is bullied at his new school. His sister is skipping school, and his mother has "wine o'clock" more often than ever. Then Liam discovers Stonebird. Stonebird is a gargoyle who protected his grandmother during the war, and seems to be protecting Liam now. Whenever Liam tells a story about Stonebird, it comes true. Stonebird helps and protects Liam. When Liam finds out the the boy who is bullying him has an unfortunate problem, Liam tells a story, and Stonebird is able to help. I loved this book. It is brilliantly written, very moving, and I would definitely read more by this author. I highly encourage others to read Stonebird as well.

    Geek Girl, by Holly Smale, is one of the most enjoyable realistic fiction books I have read. I have also read the other books in this series. They're all great. Harriet accepted a modeling job for a huge fashion industry. However, she is lies to her step-mom, Annabel in order to keep the job, because Annabel does not think that Harriet should be modeling. Harriet also lies to her best friend Nat because Nat's lifelong dream was to model, and Harriet feels like she is stealing Nat's dream. I like this book quite a bit. I love how many strange little facts there are strewn throughout the book, and would definitely read other books by Holly Smale. Geek Girl is well written, clever, and very enjoyable to read. I would highly recommend this book to all. I think that it can help people realize that even when you feel on your own, you probably aren't.
