by Patrick Carman

The book is about a boy and a girl who together try to solve mysteries about Skeleton Creek like finding out why it is called that. It might sound like fun and games, but they have to go through some problems even just to make a plan. Imagine how it would be like to sneak out the hou……… I've said too much. Read Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carman and find out the rest of the story for yourself.

I like Skeleton Creek because it is like a mysterious book and a horror book at the same time. I am trying to convince you whether you are a boy or a girl to try and read this book.

Horrowitz Horror

Anthony Horowitz

This book is about 9 stories that are chilling to me. They may seem true but they are not. Don’t read all of them in one nine or you’ll have nightmares…… Unless you want to get it over with all in one night. All of these 9 horrific stories are very cool. I hope you like this book.

Hatchet is about a teenager, Brian, who is on his way to visit his dad in the Canadian forest. His parents just got a divorce, and Brian was very sad. He was flying in a single engine plane. The pilot was getting pains and then… the plain crashed and Brian had to live in the wild for months. When they finally found him he had been attacked by animals and had been having to find his own food.

I recommend this book for everybody that likes to read adventures. I have read the book twice and have a feeling that this is the best book ever!!!!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is about a boy and his best friend Rowley. They are both in middle school. It is not just any middle school; it is very weird. Some things that are weird are the stinky cheese. It is a piece of cheese that has been outside for about three months. If you touch it you get the cheese touch. The only way to prevent from getting it is to cross your fingers. They do many other things also like big snow men to comic books to a haunted house. They do every thing. I don’t want to ruin this very funny book but that is a short summary of the book.

I recommend this book to everybody. This book is not for just girls or boys but both. I recommend this book if you like comedies. Have fun reading it, I hope you enjoy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Money Hungry


By: Sharon Flake

This book is about a girl named Rasberry Hill who’s trying to save up enough money so that she and her mom will never have to live on the streets in the projects .And she gets in trouble almost every day for selling her knock off stuff in school .She also lives in this home with some boys that are discussing boys who always get her in trouble.

I liked this book because it’s really serious, but it can be funny at times. Also this book was kind of sad, so if you don’t like sad books I wouldn’t recommend it for you.

Bone: Ghost Circles

Jeff Smith

In Ghost Circles, Bone and his friends have to find a way to shelter before the world disappears by Ghost Circles. The main characters are Fone, Smiley, Thorn, Gran-ma, Phony and the baby Rat Creature companion. This book was written by Jeff Smith.
In the book, they start out lost deep in a cave and Smiley won’t stop shocking people. Around the time Phony started getting up in Smiley’s face, Thorn started hearing voices in her head. It was more like a dream. She was in a Ghost Circle with Bone looking for food. Then a ghost appeared and started warning them to run. Bone, Thorn and Gran-ma split up with Smiley, Phony and the baby rat to find a way out. They met up at their Base Camp in the cave and found a thin bridge to the way out. I enjoyed this book because it’s funny, suspenseful and exciting.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

Jeff Kinney

In the third book to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series the main character, Greg Heffley, suffers through another diary bought by his mom. If you liked the other two Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, then you’re going to love this one. If you like animation and comedy and a little drama, you should definitely consider reading this.
Greg wants to get a date with Holly Hills before his dad ships him off to military school after seeing an annoying teenager come back respectful and put together. After attempts to change his dad’s mind, he realized nothing would stop him. Then Greg goes to Boy Scouts to show his dad that one day of manual labor can turn a wimp like Greg into a strong man. Greg finally got a chance to show his dad that he is one big man by going to a campsite to spend the night. But when they got there, the camp was 5 feet underwater. I enjoyed this book because it was funny and entertaining. You never know what Greg, Rodrick, Manny, Rowley or Fregley will do next.
