This adventure fiction book by Adam Silvera was definitely one of the best books I have ever

Red Kayak by Priscilla Cummings is an excellent book for adolescents about friendship and
trust-- for when thirteen-year-old Brady and his best friends J.T. and Digger get entwined in a
tragedy, Brady has to decide between company and right and wrong. I love this book because it
teaches kids to do the right thing and to tell the truth no matter what. I also enjoyed this book
because of its surprising twists and turns, keeping the reader on their toes.

Squire is a story about Aiza, a girl who wishes to be a knight. Throughout all of her childhood she has struggled as she is a part of the Ornu people who were captured long ago and are not granted full citizenship. Knighthood is her only path to citizenship and her one true desire. But things are a lot harder than Aiza expected. The war isn’t as black and white as it might have seemed. Maybe she isn’t being turned into a noble knight, but just yet another killing machine.

Rating: 3

My rating for this book is a 3 because the book felt not put together and just not right. The genre seems a bit off and mixes horror and fantasy. In my opinion, this is not a very good combination.

Summary:

This is about two boys who grow up together like brothers. The story talks about how the gods of the myriads caused a lot of damage to human society and killed thousands. These two boys then have to go through many challenges throughout the book.

Camp is about two girls named Willow and Olive. They learn to trust each other and learn the value of friendship. Even though they have fights, they sort it out and are friends again. Camp is a great book and I liked it a lot. I think it has a great story line and deserves a high rating. You should definitely read Camp!

Heartfelt in many ways, True (...sort of) is a fantastic book for kids. Delly, the protagonist, is a troublesome eleven-year-old girl who is one strike from being sent away. But her pretend friend Ferris is destined to keep her out of trouble with their new surprise project. Delly’s made-up vocabulary also makes this book kiddish despite its impactful underlying message on friendship and trust.
