    This was a fairly good book, but I am not too into American Girl books. Lea wants to explore the world, and thinks she'll have a lot of fun! She starts off with a trip to Brazil, where her brother is studying the rainforest. She goes to several different places and then goes to the beach, but soon, she realizes that she might not have the courage to embrace the water and dive in! Will she be able to do it? And will her fun turn out to be a dangerous journey that she'll need to learn to embrace? Read this classic American Girl book today!

    August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial abnormality. The time has come for the bright, ten-year old to leave his safe, nonjudgmental world of being homeschooled, and time to start a new journey. However, this new journey will require the shy boy to face some problems he didn't face when he was in the safe hands of his parents, at home. Starting a new school is both dreadful and fearful for Auggie. But, can Auggie's new peers manage to see Auggie for what he is underneath? Or is he going to regret switching from being homeschooled? I'd recommend this book for any reader, but, specifically readers that like inspiring or uplifting endings.

    I love Geronimo Stilton novels. They are always fun and light-hearted, with the fonts and colors and pictures. I would love to win this book, and add it to my unfinished collection of this wonderful series with Geronimo Stilton, and all the other mice in New Mouse City on Mouse Island! Thank you DOGObooks for the wonderful opportunity to win such a fun book!

    WARNING: This review may have a few spoilers, please be cautious. I will warn you before the spoilers come for those that wish to read a review without spoilers. Stanley Yelnats IV (His last name is basically his first name spelled backwards, and yes, he is the fourth in his family to be named Stanley Yelnats) finds himself accused of a crime and lands himself at Camp Green Lake, where there is no lake (although there used to be one), and there is no green: it's all pretty much a desert filled with a lot of dirt. He finds that he has to dig holes every day, as wide and as deep as his shovel. (The holes are each pretty big) But, when he starts to discover the true reason behind why he and all his 'camp friends' have to dig holes, he starts to get in a bit of danger. There is some true history to the town, and some treasure to be found. (WARNING: This is the section with spoilers.) And, when he decides to run away from camp, things get even more dangerous. Will he even survive in the desert? Or will something else happen? Something truly miraculous? Or maybe he'll experience something adventurous? Read this nail-biting novel to find out! I have watched the movie based on the book BEFORE I read the novel, so, my review may not be a true review of the novel as much and may be more of a review based on the movie. However, this is my interpretation of the novel AFTER reading the novel.

    Like all Weird But True books, this one includes many interesting facts--but only one a day, for inspiration. Unlike the other Weird But True books, this one includes places where you can write down your own weird but true experiences, and observations about the world around you. I really enjoyed this book, and recommend it to all out there that love learning about new, weird, and interesting things in the world around us!

    This was a wonderful and well-written book. Hugo Cabret, a young boy incredibly interested in mechanical structures, and fixing things, is the clock-keeper at a train station in Paris. He lives in the walls of the train station, and is known to steal things; he is a thief. His life changes, and things start to become a little bit more mysterious, when a young girl, a key, a journal, and a mechanical man come into his life. His undercover life may be revealed at last. Will this happen, or will Hugo be able to keep his life in its normal flow? Read this amazing book (with beautifully drawn pictures, and lots of them too!!) to find out! I personally loved it, and didn't want it to end when I read the last page. I recommend this to all readers!

    ocelot's book review was featured in The Giver (Cascades).
    I found this to be quite an interesting read. In a seemingly utopian world, members of a perfect society have regular, ordinary jobs that they commute to and from each day, and kids go to school to learn. However, there are some things that may prove to be not so perfect. Members of this society can't see color. They don't know what color is. They can't experience pain or pleasure. There are, however, two people in this society that are an exception to all of those things. They can see color. They can experience pain and pleasure. They understand that their seemingly utopian society may truly be a dystopian society, blinding the members of this society from the truth of the past, the truth of the things beyond their society. These two people are the Giver, and Jonas, the Receiver of Memories. When Jonas begins to learn more and more about the truth of his society, and where he lives, he begins to form a plan to rebel, to run away from his society to try to figure out what's beyond his life. Will that work? Or will the 'executive leaders' of this so-called perfect little village do everything they can to stop him? Read this wonderfully intriguing novel to find out! Note: I did read this novel twice, at different ages, and have interpreted it differently each time I read it. The review above is my overall impression of this wonderful novel by Lois Lowry.
