The Adoration of Jenna Fox

The Adoration of Jenna Fox is full of so many suprises, emotions and puzzles, it's amazing. This book automatically caught my attention from the first page. I have recommended this book to a whole class before. I can honestly say that when my future daughter or son are old enough this is a book I will make them read. (Review by Yesenia R. 7th Grade)

Shark Girl

Shark Girl by Kelly Bingham is the most down to earth book I've ever read. A couple of times I caught myself feeling bad for the author because I forgot that the story wasn't about her. If you like realistic fiction, this is the book for you, so read it now. (Review by Yesenia R. 7th Grade)

Shark Girl uses poems, letters, telephone conversations, and newspaper clippings to tell Jane's story. If you enjoy this book and want to read a non-fiction story along the same lines check out Soul Surfer by Bethany Hamilton. Hamilton survived an incident similar to the one in Shark Girl in real life and shares her story in Soul Surfer. (Review by Mrs. Netzer)
