Title of Book or Name of Activity
Things We Know By Heart by Jesi Kirby
3 Sentences
Quinn Sullivan has her whole life planned out, but when her boyfriend, Trent, dies in an accident, everything changes. She spends over a whole year mourning, but one day she decides to go out and find the person that received the heart that Trent donated. She starts spending a lot of time with the recipient, Colton, and after a while, she begins to fall in love with him. But when Colton finds out that Quinn is actually Trent's girlfriend, he gets angry and leaves her. Eventually, he forgives her and they go back to being a happy couple.
Best/Worst Thing
The best part of this book was when Quinn went to visit Colton in the hospital and she finds out that unlike what she thought, he actually did write back to her letters, he just never felt that they were good enough to send to her, which was why she never received a reply from him.

In a Glass Grimmly, by Adam Gidwitz
3 Sentences
This book is about Jill a princess, and Jack, a boy living in a village. Yet, they are cousins. They meet a frog named Frog, who only has three legs (thanks to Jill or Jill's mother, the queen). They run away from home, for different reasons. They find an old lady, who will give them their greatest desires, if, and only if, they retrieve a mirror. This mirror can make you immortal. Jack and Jill will have to meet creepy giants and much more...Will they die or will they triumph?? Read this book to find out!!
Best/Worst Thing
The best: I loved this retell of Jack and Jill!! Adam Gidwitz REALLY out did himself, again. This retell was especially funny when the book said that Jack and Jill were cousins!

The worst: Umm, maybe all the murders...but over all, it is a fabulous book!

The main character Max makes a cover story for his friend, Preston, to go to Vegas but Preston never returns. He and his girlfriend start to look for him, but so is the FBI and Preston's father's private investigation team.***********Spoiler Alert!*********


After a very complicated outcome Max and his girlfriend are living happily with tons of money from his dead mother.

First of all, Liars Inc is my favorite book in the world. The best part is the FBI tracking Max down and the worst part is the "Max time" with Max's girlfriend.
