Book Review: Me and Marvin Gardens

Me and Marvin Gardens is about a boy named Obe, who lives in the rural part of Pennsylvania. The land he lives on and now is being sold to housing developers used to be his family’s land, but his great grandfather had a drinking problem and it got taken by the banks.

Book Review: Dragonwatch

Book Review: Dragonwatch

Seth is up to his crazy antics again and although he can be annoying, I love him and his somewhat […]

Book Review: A Conjuring of..

Book Review: A Conjuring of Light

A Conjuring of Light is the last book in this trilogy. So if you haven’t read the other two… well – what are you waiting for! These books are EPIC. I’m not sure how to review this one, so I’ll just go ahead and ramble right now. It takes place directly after that last terrible cliffhanger and somehow everyone turns out to be OKAY… it’s nailbiting and terrifying as I wait for the first person to die and then wipe the sweat off my brow. Only it gets worse. The evil inside Holland leaves him and manages to make everything […]

Book Review: A Boy Called B..

Book Review: A Boy Called Bat

Bat is a little different than regular third graders. He’s on the autism spectrum and we get a glimpse of what that is like from his perspective in this book. He does not read people very well, but is a bit aware of that. Bat really loves animals and learning about them. His mother is a vet who brings home a baby skunk whose mother was killed by a car. Bat instantly takes a liking to the little kit and sets out to find a way to keep the baby skunk until he is grown and ready to be released […]
