Sabotage by Neal Bascomb

Neal Bascomb
Scholastic 2016

Sabotage by Neal Bascomb is a non-fiction book about the Norwagian's plan to sabotage Hitler's atomic bomb. Although it is a non fiction book, Neal Bascomb did an excellent job in making the book enticing enough to even catch the attention of fiction readers. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and also enjoyed the amount of facts it had.

Rating: 4 Better than most

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Erin, 13
Alexandra Bracken
Hyperion 2016

Danger. Betrayal. Romance. Drama. Time travelers. It's all here in Alexandra Bracken's novel Passenger, where music prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she cares about, and is carted away to a different time. The time-traveling aspect of this book was very interesting, like how they managed to avoid all of the paradoxes.

Hatter Madigan Ghost in the HATBOX
Publishers Group West 2016

Great book, i enjoyed it greatly. Its a take on Alice in Wonderland and they do a great job of it. The scenes are described very well. The plot is good it follows a young boy who is following in the footsteps of his parents. He uncovers a plot to take over the school, and naturally, he and a small group of friends decide to stop it.
