The Phantom Tollbooth, by Nortan Juster
I don't know if a book can get better than this one! I would rate it 5 stars for...EVERYTHING!

Can You Keep a Secret by Sopie Kinsella
Nice book! It is about how a 25 year old woman, Emma,tells all her secrets to a stranger who sat next to her in the plane the rode. But in the end, that stranger is actually her boss and what will Emma do if her boss remembers every singe secret of hers?

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Hobbit is a book about Bilbo Baggins who encounters a visit from Gandalf, a wizard, and some dwarfs. Bilbo was drawn into the magical adventures they spoke of. Now he is up to one. Together they encounter many obstacles to get back treasures from Smaug, a dragon who stole all of it.

The Ransom of Mercy Carter by Caroline Cooney
An outstanding historical fiction read! This book really gives you a view into the past to see what happened in Deerfield, Massachusetts to the town of white settlers. The way the author describes the events, it make you feel as if you are actually there. I highly recommend this book.

Stay tuned for more reviews!
