I love the PBS series. This is the next book after the last season. Yikes now I know what's going to happen and I don't want to spoil the story line. Oh my goodness, it's a good one. It's like family soap opera.

I like this series. Different authors add their own book in the series to continue the story. Think the TV show Lost with the TV show Survivor and Land of the Lost. It's fine for any school library. Enjoy. Audio book also good.

You will need a hanky with this story. It's perfect for any elementary school library. It's the story of a boy and his dog and poetry on the surface. But it's also the story of grief and loss of a loved pet. It's a good book. The audio book also very good plus a bonus of Walter Dean Meyers reading one of his poems.
I found this book extra special. There are so many life layers in this book. An angry hurt girl who has her reputation ruined because she was taken advantage of. The destruction of a special creature. A life on the road just living on the land and meeting interesting or dangerous people and creatures. Freedom is a gift and a responsibility. It's a good read and a good audio book.
This is an important series to add to any high school library. It's told in a graphic novel style. It's an excellent graphic novel that portrays history in the words of John Lewis,who talks about the past and what he experienced. I'm getting for my high school library.

This book starts slow and that's fine. Wait til you get to the end. It's worth the read. What I like is that the author worked with refugees and brought in their world of violence and life into the rest of the world. Travel to the Congo and Kenya and solve a mystery as you read these pages. Audio book also good.

So getting this for my high school library. A must read to understand the brave people who sacrificed so much to save the Jewish people of Warsaw, Poland. That evil must be stopped. That ordinary people make the difference. It's the true account of events surrounded by one special woman, Irena. It's an important read. The audio book also very good.

Its a novella from the Dividing Eden series and it's fine. It gives a backstory of a brother and sister and the misfortune that they have. Enjoy.
It's a good series and the audio book is also good. I found this story a bit over the top but still entertaining. Told in a few perspectives, new characters and various family members. It is still fine for any library. Over all it's a good read.

The audio book is great. This is a thriller meshed with murder, mystery, science and politics and throw in some of romance. The story continues of the Austin Family Chronicles. Fine for any middle or high school library and good for public and personal libraries. Enjoy.
I'm enjoy this audio book and the story is delightful. Should be a required reading for middle or high school students. It's about life and growth. Romance and relationships. Well written. A bit vintage but still good. Enjoy.
I loved this book and am going through this series. The audio book excellent. It's part philosophical, part scientific, part environmental and all about life. This series will be welcome in any library, middle, high and public libraries. A great coming of age story.

Just like Alice in Wonderland chasing a rabbit to destiny, Neverfall also chases a rabbit into chaos and away from her sheltered world. Underground is not safe, wines that can make you forget, a master thief and lies that float around as truths. It's a good read. I think fine for middle school. The beginning is slow but wait till you get to the end! Enjoy.
I listened to the audio book and decided to stick with it. I'm glad I did. It's not an easy story to read. At first I thought Olivia was a shallow girl but then you can see that she is a teen in need. Would I put it in the library? I think I would. It's an important read.
I already have the first two in my high school library, this will be another one to add. It's a solid series and great various characters, each with their flaws. Danger and mystery color this story intense. Enjoy and also audio book very good.
A friend told me about this book. She said it was great. I listened to the audio book and will get for my high school library. It's intense and I love that it has all the 80's reference. Enjoy this book. Think Tron, Warcross, Ender's Game and other cybergame world books. Enjoy.

This story line has been done many times but this is pretty special. Will I get for my high school library? You betcha. It's a good read and I look forward to Tomi Adeyemi's next book. Enjoy. Audio book also good.
Tron the next generation. This is the newest genre of online gamers who become deep in the cyberspace. James Dashner knows how to tell a suspenseful story. Fine for any school library. Enjoy.
This is book would be perfect for women studies and First Nation studies. Family dysfunction written so vividly. Self understanding and journey makes this a brave story to read. The audio book also very good.
It's a dark and destructive story. It's fine. I think it would work best for personal libraries and public libraries. The audio book is fine. Oh there are some survival of the fittest moments as the group fight of cannibals.
I fell in love with this story. This is one personal story as the author writes about her grandmother. It is well written and never boring. What a life this woman has led. A must read for all grades and adults. I will add to my high school library. The audio book also very good.
Wow, go back in time to Nigeria, 1960's. Lots going on. It's not an easy story as you see this young man struggle with right and wrong. We had this book in the library. Our students read Things Fall Apart so I wanted to read this story. Audio book also good.
