How to Eat Fried Worms
Review
My sister, mother and I have been reading books together this summer and then watching the movie afterward. This book was very funny! I enjoyed all the different challenges that Billy encountered while trying to eat 15 worms in 15 days. Some chapters made me cringe as I imagined having to eat the worm of the day but it was a fun read. The movie was great too though very different from the book!  "Check it Out"

Maximum Ride Vol. 1
Review
If you were ever curious as to what an "Eraser" looks like in the Maximum Ride books, you'd definitely want to check out this book series! I'm always a fan of a good graphic novel, and I'd put these right up there with the best~!  "Check it Out"

Looking for Alaska
Review
I thought this book was better than The Fault in Our Stars because it was suspenseful and I didnt expect what was going to happen. I did have a harder time imagining the characters in this book.  "Check it Out"
