Thank you Summer Reading Club Volunteers & Members!

Thanks to all of you for making this summer especially awesome!

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

The Invention of Hugo Cabret is about a boy whose father died because of a fire and now he's living in the walls of a subway fixing clocks.  He then discovers a robot his father never finished and takes it upon himself to finish it.  The last part that he needs is a key that he gets from his friend Isabelle who he meets in the subway.  His father also happened to be a famous filmmaker who was inspired by an old man who sold toys who was Isabelle's grandfather.  At the end of the book Isabelle and her grandparents take Hugo in as their own.  3 Stars  - Reviewed by Emma

Radiance by Alyson Noel

The book Radiance, (in my opinion) is a very unique book compared to others that I've read.  It's very different from many other books because the author makes death seem like a sort of pleasant experience.  I've never read a book that did that.  I also really liked how the kids in the "Here & Now" (the afterlife) attended a ghost school.  I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries and adventurous books.  5 Stars  - Reviewed by Noam

Ungifted by Gordon Korman

This story follows Donovan Curtis as he is mistakenly admitted into a gifted school.  This was a very comical book that is good for middle schoolers and early high school readers.  3 Stars  - Reviewed by Kelly

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Teenage girls can relate to this quirky tale of college, family, love and fangirling.  Keep calm and carry on Simon! 5 stars!       - Reviewed by Jasmine
