"My favorite part is the locomotive exploding. It's just for pretend to tell what would happen if the boiler got too low on water but still had too much coal in it. Ka-boom!"

— Elijah Elliott, 4 of Burlington

Chomp by Carl Hiaasen

"It was interesting when Tuna's dad shot Wahoo's dad's toe off. Tuna's dad was looking for her, but Wahoo and his father were trying to protect her."

— Yukina Benjamin, 10 of St. Albans

Feed by M.T. Anderson

"It's a book about this normal guy named Titus and his friends. They're on the moon for spring break and their feeds — chips implanted in their brains — are hacked by this really old guy. It's a story about love, and I rate it very highly."

— Griffin Koss, 11 of Johnson
