    Hiya! It's been so long since I have been on DOGO books! I really missed it and I am glad to be back! Recently, my favorite books are Wuthering Heights, John Adams, Jane Eyre, Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, and Gathering Blue! My read-a-thon for spring is starting!!! I will try to post summaries of books every week that I read! Feel free to follow along with me on my journey. The current book I am planning to discuss is John Adams by David McCullough! Again, thank you so much everyone for making DOGO such a wonderful place :D See you soon!

    Winning this Explorer Academy book would be an enormous honor for me. I really enjoy reading this series and it would be a huge help during the pandemic! Finding light in this life crisis has been really hard for me and this book would brighten my day. You can travel many places in a book and I would like to do so, safely tucked away in my nook. Spiraling away into this tangling story is all I could ever wish for. I am planning on hosting read-aloud sessions with my friends, virtually, and I think this book would be perfect! I am graciously thankful for all the support of books that DOGO provides even in this challenging time.

    I was thrilled when I learned that this book was a slight sequel to Between Shades of Grey (recommend that too lol). I absolutely loved the characters, plot, and everything about it.

    kgbradshaw's book review was featured in Houdini and Me.
    I will admit, I did have my own doubts when I began to read Houdini and Me. Our protagonist, 11 year old Harry Mancini, was born and raised in the home that Harry Houdini himself lived in for the last twenty something years of his extraordinary life. Like most 11 year olds, Harry copes with typical struggles of tweens: not being given a phone, too much homework, friend drama, and the looming fact that Harry Houdini wants to switch places with Harry Mancini for the rest of eternity. Harry Mancini and his best friend Zeke decide to one day test out whether placing a penny on a train rail would flatten the penny or derail the train (Spoiler alert: It flattens the penny). Harry, after placing the money on the train rail, gets his shoelace stuck in the train rail and barely avoids being crushed by the train. However, Harry also sustains a concussion on the way down and falls into a week long coma. When he wakes, Mancini discovers that someone has sent him a flip phone as a get well gift, and Harry is less than thrilled. But all of his feelings swap when he begins to receive texts from someone; they claim to be Harry Houdini communicating from the dead. Harry Mancini enjoys his nightly text exchanges with Houdini until the latter Harry suggests that both of them switch places for one hour. Harry Mancini complies, and afterwards Houdini suggests that they do the switch once again, but they will both never return to their original form. The story ends in an amazing plot twist with Mancini waking up from another week long coma, only to find a flip phone inside a get well present. I enjoyed reading this book, and would really love to learn about what being stuck in this time loop means for both Harrys. A true page turner, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrills and mysteries.
