A Pocket Full of Murder by R.J Anderson

 

In Tarretown, a place run by magic, where nobles and the higher classes rule over the poor, Isaveth and her family only have enough money to use common household magic to heat their home or light it. This magic was made for the lower class who could not afford the expensive magic reserved for people in higher classes than them.  But, one day Isaveth’s father is wrongly accused of Governor Orien’s murder using common magic. Lawkeepers are forced to suspect him because of a suspected grudge against the governor and the fact that common magic was used to kill him. The poor were not allowed to use higher forms of magic, leaving them to only use common magic to do things or misuse them by killing someone. Isaveth and her three sisters are heartbroken, which leaves Isaveth to sleuth around and figure out who the real murderer is and clear her father’s name. Along the way, she meets a peculiar eye-patched boy named Quiz. The two are an unstoppable pair, finding more clues every step they take. But, is Quiz really helping Isaveth out of friendship? Or does he have hidden motives of his own? And, will Isaveth be able to clear her father’s name and find the true murder?

 

This book was amazing, and I wished it didn’t end after I read the last word. I loved the huge shock of Quiz’s true identity, and learning who the real murderer is. At first, it was hard to derive the book’s meaning because of the unexplained magic, but eventually the book explains, so don’t worry! I definitely recommend this book. I would give this book a 10 out of 10!

Invasion by Nandita Nair

 

Autumn lives with her mother and little sister Sierra. She is usually not one to believe in conspiracy theories, but, when a series of strange events goes on in her town and globally, ones that are blamed on aliens, she starts to believe.  Soon, strange abductions are taking place, and people are dying.  It’s not easy for her to fully believe, but she witnesses it for the first time, during an alien invasion. What will happen to her and the rest of humanity?

 

This book was amazing! There is a great plot twist at the end, and it’s fun to read about Autumn’s experiences throughout the invasion. This book really gets the reader to question what they would do during the end of the world in an alien invasion. I would give this book a 10 out of 10!

Wonder by Raquel J. Palacio

August Pullman was always seen as strange to other kids. Not because of his behavior, but his facial features. He was born with a cleft palate, which makes his face disfigured. This story is about August Pullman’s struggles with other kids and the bully Julian, and not being excepted for him. His life is a roller coaster of emotions, starting from a betrayal of a best friend to so many other events that he has to push through. Palacio is a great author, who wrote a great book.

I loved this book, it is definitely a must read. Please, please, please read this book and give it a chance, you won’t regret it. I would give this book a 10/10.
