"This funny book is about when the worst kids in town decide to be in the church Christmas pageant because someone told them the church had candy. Great for about third to fourth grade."

"I looooove this book! In this masterpiece of a writing, Lois Lowry spins a tale about a twelve year-old boy living in a community where there is no such thing as love or pain. What does he have to go through in order to discover the real world? The book is absolutely amazing, and I love Lowry's way of making every section end in a cliffhanger. Don't read this book before bedtime, because you won't be able to stop to put it down.
The one downside to this book, though, is the ending. It is so hard to write good book endings, and I think that is the only think lacking the magical Lowry touch."

Little House on the Prairie (Little House, Bk 2)

"As the fourth book in the Madeleine L'engle Time series, this book is an adventure with identical twins Sandy and Dennys, dating back in time to the days of Noah's Ark. I like the twist the author gives with a mix of Biblical stories, romance and fantasy."

"The Scarlet Pimpernel is an amazing book, perhaps as amazing as the author's full name (Baroness Emmuska Magdalena Rosalia Maria Josefa Barbara Orczy!)If you want to get a good idea of this book, you need only read the first sentence before it draws you in: "A surging, seething murmuring crowd, of beings that are human only in nave, for to the eye and ear they seem naught but savage creatures, animated by vile passions and by the lust of vengeance and of hate."
The Scarlet Pimpernel is a great classic and a must-read for everyone."
