“IF YOU FIND THIS is a mystery full of prime numbers, enemies becoming friends, and action packed all the way! Nicholas is a misfit; he’s also crazy good at math. Zeke draws mermaids in silver marker on his arms. Jordan is hated by everyone. The Isaacs are jerks. Grandpa Rose is always talking about some “heirlooms.” Eventually, Nicholas starts believing him and goes on a hunt for them. I love this book and think Brazos Bookstore should sell this freakin’ awesome book! It’s full of surprises and happy parts! I <3 IF YOU FIND THIS!”

“OMEGA CITY is about when a girl named Gillian discovers an underground city (or maze). This book was special because unlike some mystery books, there are a lot of little mysteries included with the “big mystery.” This book is also special because it’s a mystery about space that has nothing to do with space! People should read it because it is a puzzling book that makes you never want to stop reading!”

“FERALS is about a boy named Caw who discovers he’s a _____. FERALS is full of adventure and mystery. It is very exciting. This book was unique because it had a human-animal relationship that very few books have. Another thing is that it starts with a mystery and ends with sureness, not likely for a book in a series. I think people should read it because well, as I said, it’s exciting!!!”

“THE JUMBIES is about when a girl named Corinne sees a Jumbie (an evil spirit) in a forest...this leads to a tangle of trouble! This book was special because, unlike most scary books, you don’t want to put it down and cry (just kidding!). It is also special because it is a chapter book with a twist to a Caribbean folktale. I think people should read it because it is a little heart-racing!”

“This book is about a girl going to America, being sent back, but escaping, and making a new life, with new friends, but also enemies. I really like the way she followed and finished what she started, and was brave and sure about it. I also liked that she cared about and loved her friends, making sure that they didn’t get hurt, and at the end she was rewarded for it. People should read this book because it is really interesting, and is a good story about bravery and courage, but also, I think it’s about love. I dont think that I would change anything about it, but I think people might wonder--and I do too,--what happened to the other characters.”

--Julia Lewis, age 11
