By Clark, Zack Loran, Eliopulos, Nick

4 ratings 4 reviews

Emrys Houtman knows something isn’t quite right in the town of New Rotterdam, although no one talks about it―certainly not the grown-ups. The sky is always overcast, and urban legends abound of mysterious disappearances, cursed objects, and strange creatures wandering the coastal fog...

Ghosts

Ghosts

By Raina Telgemeier

I absolutely love this book! I love the relationship Cat and Maya have. Shes very loving to her sister and she protects her like a great older sister she is! I like how when she began going to school she was able to make good friends and they were super nice and kind towards her. I like how in the end she meet with this old woman ghost and they got along nicely. In the end Cat thought that their Grandmother didn't come but instead their ghost of their grandmother made them lots of food for them. I would rate this book 5 stars!

Room 13 (New Windmills)

Room 13 (New Windmills)

By Robert Swindells

I loved this book! I loved when Felicity, Lisa, David, and Gary try to stop Ellie-May from entering room 13 even though she was possessed by Dracula the Vampire but when they told their teacher Mr Hepworth and they checked room 13 it was a Janitors closet... Even though they were in big trouble for doing this they still did what was right to protect Ellie-May even though their superiors thought they were pulling pranks. In the end Fliss, Lisa, David and Gary still got into trouble, they saved Ellie-Mays life and gained her trust for doing that! The lesson is to always do the right thing even if others think we are liars, it will hurt but Good things will always find a way through in the end! 😁😁😀😊

Finding the Worm (Twerp Sequel)

Finding the Worm (Twerp Sequel)

By Mark Goldblatt

Finding the worm has a complicated title, but it has heart. This story is about Julian, "Jules", Tweski, a Jewish person living in Flushing, Queens. It is a superb book, of decent writing. In the end, the themes in this book were very thought-provoking. The style, in regards to using many commas and ands, added to the experience of being a relatable book. A brief description: Quentin, "Quick Quentin", has a tumor. The kids on the block, Lonnie, Shlomo, Julian, Eric, and Howie, who live in the Dorado House or such named buildings, go on with their lives, and Julian, whose Bar Mitzvah is coming up, learns from the rabbi (a very good character with witty lines) about death. All the while, Julian Tweski records his thoughts about life and all the events that happen during this time. It was interesting reading a book that portrayed the 70s and life in New York so well, painting a vivid picture of the activities of those living in this time. Many of the landmarks described within this book I could find on the Internet; likewise with the baseball players. It's a sequel to the book TWERP but you don't have to read that one (it does give you some spoilers though). All in all, a sad and thoughtful book at the end, but some middle parts, describing their daily activities, were a little "meh". It is a contemplative realistic fiction book with good dialogue.
