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

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
