    Imagine being kidnapped by accident. That's what happens to Wren,  one of the main characters in the book ​Hidden​. ​Hidden​ is a realistic  fiction book written by Helen Frost. In the book ​Hidden​, Wren Abbott is  a 8 year old girl who gets kidnapped by Darra Monson’s father. The  kidnapping was an accident but it left both the girls with many  questions for each other. A couple years both Darra and Wren meet at  a camp. Both girls starting answering each other's questions and  revealing the truths. This book is amazing. It is written from both  Wren’s and Darra’s point of view, which makes the book more  interesting. I would rate it four out of five stars. The type of readers  who would like this book would be readers who like books about  friendship and suspense. Helen Frost has also written many other  books like ​Keesha’s House​ and ​Diamond Willow.

    Looking for a good book to read? Well Saving Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea is an amazing book to read. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Saving Mr. Terupt is a realistic fiction book that is set in the students current middle school that they are attending and Snow Hill School in Mr. Terupt's classroom. This book is told from 7 different characters points of view. Saving Mr. Terupt is the 3rd book in the series. In comparison to Mr. Terupt Falls Again, the 2nd book in the series, the stories involve the same characters, Jeffery, Anna, Alexia, Peter, Luke, Jessica, and Danielle. Also, the 2 book's setting and story are different. This book shows an amazing relationship that students can have with a teacher that means a lot to them. For example in the text it says, " It was time for more drastic measures. There was no way I was allowing this to happen. These people had made a mistake." This shows that they have a strong relationship because it shows that when the results came in and Mr. Terupt was going to loose his job they were prepared to do anything it takes to get it back. This book is about a group of friends that suffer through multiple challenges along the book. For example, a big fight they had with each other, trying to save their favorite teacher and much more. Although, they might suffer through a lot of challenges, they also have a lot of fun moments too. Like, the "Everything Fair", planing their campaigns in Mr. Terupt's classroom and much more. If you liked Because of Mr. Terupt or Mr. Terupt Falls Again, then you would like this one too. I would recommend reading the books in order so, you would have a better understanding of the plots and relationships between the characters. Someone that would like this book are mostly students and kids ages between 10-14 years old because I think that they would relate more.

    Rump     Not such a bad guy after all. Rump is a fictional book about the life of Rumpelstiltzkin. Rump  was written by Liesl Shurtliff, this book is also a Rebecca Caudill book of 2016. I loved this book. This book was so intriguing because there is one side of Rump that we never knew about, and we get to see that side. There's also quite a bit of a dilemma’s, some family issues and magic in this book. I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. This book takes place in a place called village. Village is nearby the mountains, past yonder and beyond. There is a king and fairies and witches and trolls. But Rump is a young boy with no father mother and an old sick grandmother. He is made fun of his name because his mother never told anybody what his full name was and he can never remember what it was so he goes by Rump. He only has one friend (sorta) named Red. Red sticks up for him when he gets picked on but she's not necessarily nice to him either. Rump finds the only part of his mother left, her spinning wheel. Rumps grandmother warned him about magic and so did Red but he didn't listen. He is lost on a journey to find his destiny, his family members and to get untangled and all the magic he has cause. He's become powerless over all the greed and the magic that has taken over him. This book gave me chills, every time I would read it felt like I was right there next to him, running with him, hiding with him. This book is so well descriptive. In a part of the book he is sitting down eating “sludge” with trolls he describes their smell, their actions, and how loud they are, it's like I could smell them when I was reading. I also found his book interesting because when I saw the movie ​Shrek Forever After​, and that movie Rumpelstiltskin is a mean greedy man, but when I read this book he was a nice young boy just looking to live life. This book really gave me a different perspective on Rumpelstiltskin. Liesl Shurtliff wrote two other books about the true story of fairytales. She wrote one about Jack in the beanstalk and she wrote one about red riding hood, but the red Riding hood book is not in stores yet. I have written 1 review before on Idogonews. This will be my second review. The type of reader that will enjoy this book would be ages 10+ because there is some strong vocabulary in this book.

    The boat operators should have looked for Noodle because although it was likely that he had drowned he could have survived too and found help ,like he did.

    I like the part where families light up their homes. It must look really pretty.
