the book tells about people who are competing to hit the most home run in one season. Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs in one season. Roger Maris hit 61 home runs. Every person is better than the last.

The Rifle

I thought I remembered reading this book as a tween. I definitely recognize the cover, but I did NOT remember the ending. I won't ruin it for you, but all I will say is that I wish I hadn't finished it. It does NOT have a happy ending. Honestly, this book probably deserves closer to five stars, but since 4.5 stars wasn't an option, and I hated the ending, I opted for four stars. It was an interesting and well written story with a relatively captivating plot. I just couldn't stomach the ending. That said, if you like books that don't have happy endings, I would recommend it.

Baseball Genius Double Play
by Tim Green and Derek Jeter

View in Library Catalog



Okay, lets start off with this comment, this book is amazing. This is the perfect book for pre-teens to young adults that love baseball. You might be scared away when you see that this is the second book in the series,’‘ Baseball Genius” . No worries, because Green and Jeter do an amazing job with explaining stuff that happened in the last book. That does not mean I don’t recommend that first book, I do. I’m just saying Its easy to start it without reading the first. Here’s another thing that’s interesting, this is a book were there are two authors. The first is an amazing sports writer, Tim Green. The second is the, future hall of famer in 2020, and star shortstop for the Yankees who won five World Series Championships, Derek Jeter. This is an amazing book, yet I would not recommend that you do,’’ A Chapter A Night” because the chapters are super short, like most of Green’s novels. Well, anyways please read this book because if you don’t, your missing out on something great.

The Boy Who Crashed to Earth
by Judd Winick

I read my first graphic novel a few months ago and have been trying to read more, just to broaden my literary horizons. This particular one was better than most of what I've read, but I still only gave it three stars because, in my (admittedly limited) experience, the average juvenile graphic novel leaves something to be desired. The whole thing would be best described as "good enough". The quality of writing, the illustrations, the level of humor, etc... It wasn't the best book I ever read, but it was far from the worst. I would recommend it for readers interested in a superhero themed graphic novel, but not to anyone who gravitates towards books outside that specific area.

Guinea Dog
by Patrick Jennings

View in Library Catalog



This definitely wasn't the best children's book I've ever read, but I'd put it in the top 25% for sure... maybe even the top 10%. It's a story about a boy whose mom gets him a guinea pig instead of the dog he REALLY wanted. He is NOT happy about this development, but over the course of the book, he discovers that the guinea pig actually acts like a dog and he grows to love her.

Jinx
by Sage Blackwood

View in Library Catalog



My perspective on the book Jinx written by Sage Blackwood is surprised. A young boy named Jinx, who is absolutely normal like everyone else encounters magic and danger as he grows up in a forest known as the Urwald and discovers that the worlds perspective of the Urwald is more complex than he could think of. It makes me think that we can do, what believe and want to. Be what we dream of becoming. So without anything said I give Jinx a 4 star.

Baby Turtles Tale
by Mcguinness

View in Library Catalog



I read this book to my little brother. The baby turtle hatched and was surprised he was a day late and searched for his family who had already left him towards the beach. He makes his journey in search of his family to find them in the end in the ocean. I liked the sea turtle facts in the end and the movement pictures.

Passenger To Frankfurt
by Agatha Christie

View in Library Catalog



Definitely not my favorite Christie book. Not a murder mystery in sight, just lots of conspiracy theories and world domination. Half the time, I didn’t even understand what was happening. And I couldn’t keep all the characters straight. The best part was Aunt Matilda and she was hardly even in it.

The Copernicus Legacy: The Serpents Curse
by Tony Abbot

I really enjoyed this book because it was filled with puzzles and mystery. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and you cant stop reading it. I would recommend the book to people who like reading mystery and adventure books.
