The End of the Beginning by Avi

"My favorite part of the story was when Edward, an ant, said to Avon, a snail, 'Don't look at the world with your eyes, look at the world with your heart.' Then Avon said, 'But I don't have eyes on my heart!'"

— Recommended by Megan Jamison, 8 of Georgia

I Survived the Nazi Invasion, 1944 by Lauren Tarshis

Take Two by Julia DeVillers & Jennifer Roy

"I liked when Mason and Jason scared Emma with the gecko because it was funny. I also liked when Payton tripped in the giant hamster ball, because I could imagine that happening and it was absolutely hilarious."
