Book of I Have Too Much Homework: A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graff


Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 8.51.41 AMWhat this story is about: This book is about a world where every body has talents, some talents are normal, like knitting or whistling, and some are extraordinary like floating… or shapeshifting. Eleven year old Cady has a talent for baking, specifically cakes. She can look at a person and tell what kind of cake they like best, which is the reason for the past five years that Cady has won the Sunshine Bakers of America Annual Cake Bake-off. She’s the only orphan at Miss Mallory’s Home for Lost Girls that hasn’t been matched. Miss Mallory’s talent is matching people up, Cady is the only orphan that she’s never been able to match, but one day when a man drives into the back yard of the orphanage, every thing changes

My scale of awesomeness: This book was incredible! I loved all of Cady’s recipes in the book! I think my favorite character by far was Cady because she’s so much like me! (besides the fact that she won a bake-off 5 times in a row, I have won exactly ZERO!)

Book of the Week: The Search for Delicious By: Natalie Babbitt


What the story is about: The Prime Minister DeeCree was writing a dictionary, and he was all the way up to D. Unfortunately along with D also comes delicious and its definition, so the prime minister put down ” as delicious as fried Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 8.58.24 AMfish.” (I disagree, I think delicious is a slice of chocolate pudding pie with whipped cream but that might be just me) And so he went to  go show the king his progress, when they got to delicious the king said no, he must change it, everyone knows that delicious is an apple, but the General of the armies was standing near and he said no everybody knows delicious is a mug of beer and pretty soon everyone was shouting, the Queen was yelling christmas pudding, and the king and the General were glaring at each other. So it was decided that DeeCree’s 12 year old assistant Gaylen would go and take a poll for what delicious was.

My scale of awesomeness: This book was delicious itself! I think my favorite character was Ardis ( I didn’t mention her but you would know her if you read the book) What do you think the definition of delicious is? Comment below and I’ll publish all the answers soon!

Book of the Week: The League of Seven By Alan Gratz


Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 9.45.23 AMWhat the story is about: (This story is an alternate history set in the 1800s and an evil Tomas Edison who experiments with the forbidden substance that raises the Mangleborn: electricity) It’s about three kids named Archie (Archibald), Hachi and Fergus. Together they start to form the new league, the league of seven, the league that stops the Mangleborn from taking over the world. ( Mangleborn are very bad giant monsters) The league is always made up of seven people with different powers, one is a tinker, a scientist, a warrior, a hero, a law bringer, a trickster and the strongman. Hachi is the warrior, she also has 5 different clockwork circus animals that she can use to help her, Fergus is the tinker, but he has a bad leg so he made himself a mechanic leg instead. And Archie is the hero, or so they think. Malacar Aheshterat or the Swarm Queen is rising and its up to them to stop her. Can they do it?

My scale of awesomeness: This book is 很好! ( that means very good in chinese) I think my favorite character is Hachi and her clockwork circus which includes Mr. Lion, Tusker (Elephant), Freckles (Giraffe), Zee (Zeebra) and JoJo (gorilla)
