Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

"I enjoyed the plot of this book, in which a very unique ninth-grade girl starts going to a public school after being homeschooled. I liked how Stargirl was herself. Even if things got rough, she wasn't about to change her attitude."

Anna Schwarz, 11 of Cambridge

Lucy the Littlest Puppy by Holly Webb

"I love dogs. It made me happy to read about Lucy because my mom and dad won't let me have a dog."

Lily Benoit, 7 of Monkton

Spirit Animals: Wild Born by Brandon Mull

"What I like about this book is the kids are willing to fight for Erdas (their world). Their enemy is this guy named Zerif. He is really evil!"

— Hunter Norton, 8 of Ferrisburgh
