Bras and Broomsticks is the first book in a series of four books.  I would recommend this obok to a friend.  Bras and Broomsticks is about these two sisters who realize that their mom is a witch.  The powers are passed to the younger sister Mary.  This makes, Rachel, the older sister jealous.  Their mom says no magic until training is over but they don't listen.  This tells of their adventures!  very good!

Princess for Hire (by Lindsey Leavitt)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Jessica, grade 7

Princess for Hire is one of the best books I've read!  Desi Bascomb is your average teen-dealling with backstabbing Celeste, trying to get totally swoon-worthy Hayden to notice her, and juggling family matters.  So when she's given the chance to use magical powers within her to fill-in for, get this--royall princesses, of course she says yes!  But Desi soon learns subbing for royalty isn't about wearing a sparkly tiara, flirting with princes, and riding in a sleek limo.  This book was funny, entertaining, and full of magic!

Small Steps (by Louis Sachar)

Rating 4

Reviewed by SA

I read Small Steps becasue I read Holes and really enjoyed.  I really liked the forbidden love between Kaira DeLeon and Armpit.  The ticket situation with Armpit and X-Ray was great too.  One of my favorite parts was when Armpit thought that Kaira was saying "Save Me Armpit, a damsel in distress."  I thought that was really funny!  I would definitely recommend this book to any of my friends.

Pet Trouble: Runaway Retriever (by Tui T. Sutherland)

Rating 5

Reviewed by LC

"Runaway Retriever" is a hilarious tale of a boy and his new golden retriever Merlin.  Merlin is a nature escape artist.  He can escape from fences, baby gates, dog crates, and the bathroom by opening the door.  He visits the boy (Parker) at school, sets all the dogs free at the doggie daycare, and climbs a 50 ft fence!  I enjoyed reading this book because I won a golden retriever and can relate to some of the situations.  I would recommend this book to all of my firends, and anyone who wants to read a hilarious story.
