Stolen Children (by Peg Kehret)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Alexis, grade 6

I really enjoyed the beginning of the book where they were kidnapped, I mean it wasn't just a simple runthrough of what happens, it is played as it is a real thing in life happening.  And the middle of the book is really detailed of where they go, and how the kidnappers treated them.  But the end is best of all, of when it is when all the hard work goes to trying to get away from the kidnappers.  I give this book 5 stars.

Witch and Wizard (by James Patterson)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Elizabeth, grade 7

I really liked the Witch & Wizard because it was told from two points of view (Wisty & Whit's)  the only bad part is you sometimes have to go back and see who is talking.  Another thing is the characters are really and really retermined to beat the one who took over and banned all magic.  But the best part was the short chapters with cliffhanger endings that keep you turning the page all the way to the end.

Rating 5

Reviewed by Mallory, grade 11

This book is about Alicia.  She loves to dance!  Ali even works at her dance studio so she can get free classes.  When one of her friends posts a video of her dancing at a concert things start to get weird.  She constantly feels like she's being watched.  The book keeps you on the edge of your seat with all the twists & turns.  You'll never want to put the book down.

Rating 5

Reviewed by Morgan, grade 6

I recommend this book to everybody that likes an edgy book.  I enjoyed reading this book because it's like an never ending maze, and everytime you think you've foudn the end there's more to it.  I give this book 5 out of 5 stars because it's so realistic.  Abduction! certainly deserved the Mark Twain award for 2006-2007.
