Annabelle and Norah's Books of the Week #3!

Notorious RBG

By: Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik

Notorious RBG is a great book to read if you like politics, ladies rights, or even are just fascinated by RBG's life in general. RBG preserved through her life as a teacher and a lawyer all the way up to the Supreme Court. This book tells you that it doesn't matter if you are a girl or a boy either one can go to the top or the Supreme Court.-Annabelle

Percy Jackson

By: Rick Riordan

I loved the Percy Jackson series as well as the sequel Heroes of Olympus series. It was a unique, and modern take on classic greek stories. Rick Riordan blends humor and thriller flawlessly.-Norah

This is one of the best books I've ever read.-Allie

The Land of Stories

By: Chris Colfer

The land of stories is a good book series for people who like fairy tales and fantasy. It's about twins (a boy and a girl) who accidentally travels into the fairy tale world. And it was a bad time to be traveling to a world that they had no idea existed, for something evil is lurking in the dark. To find out more read the first book! And you'll find the adventures they're on.-Lena

Annabelle and Norah's Books of the Week #1!

Friday Barnes, Never Fear

By: R.A. Spratt

Friday Barnes is the eighth book of the series. It is one of my favorites in the series. It is about a girl detective who solves mysteries for rewards. The eighth book is where the original headmaster does not come back but a new and very efficient one turns up. There is also a rumor of gold that is hidden under the school. If you like a good mystery with drama, suspense and just the right mix of humor this is the book for you.-Annabelle

Keeper of the Lost Cities

By: Shannon Messenger

I loved Keeper of the Lost Cities. It was an intricate blend of humor, suspense, and middle school drama. If you are looking for the next Harry Potter here it is. It is about a girl genius that can read minds named Sophie that finds out she is an elf. I loved this series after reading the first book I had to read all of them. Annabelle, Lena, and even my Mom loved it.-Norah
