Rubi Rivera has everything any kid could dream of. She is the star of her own show. She wants for nothing. She has money for days. But how would her loyal fanbase react if she told them she didn't want to star in it anymore? Skylar Welshman is the opposite of Rubi: she's bullied at school, and longs to be different. She longs to be like her idol, Rubi. And one day, after a particularly awful day at school, she runs away to the movie lot where she knows Rubi's show is. And somehow, in a weird twist of fate, she gets locked into a prop room with her star, Rubi! After a sudden earthquake, they are found. . . But Skylar and Rubi are very, very different. Somehow, they have switched bodies! How does it really feel to walk a mile in somebody else's shoes? Rubi's used to the pressures of Hollywood - does she know how to cope with regular school? Skylar has longed for a life of stardom - but can she swim with the lethal sharks and starlets?

The subtitle of this book is doing good to those who have hurt you and the book really shows us how we can extend extraordinary goodness to bless those who have caused harm intentionally or unintentionally and to see the power of healing through forgiveness

The Friend

I just loved this book. A lot of it feels very niche, a very academic and self-conscious approach to reading and writing. But the language is very accessible even for all the hyper-literary references. It feels very conversational, and the characters may be from the elite but they're trying to come to grips with such common sorrows-- loss, loneliness, keeping your life together while not being sure that it's worth the effort. I think I'd recommend this book to most people. It's a lovely book and proof positive that stories involving animals are not necessarily childish or sentimental.

Witch And Wizard The Fire
by James Patterson

View in Library Catalog



Witch & Wizard: The Fire is the third book in the Witch & Wizard series by James Patterson. In it, brother and sister Whit and Wisty Allgood must try to stop The One Who Is The One, the ultimate leader of a new totalitarian government, before he takes over the world and destroys all means of creativity. These siblings are put to the ultimate test when the people they love the most, their parents, are torn away from them by The One who is trying to destroy their world-and is succeeding. Wisty and Whit face hardship, betrayal, heartbreak, and more in this fast-paced action book. Overall, I would give this book 4.5 stars out of 5. In the beginning of the book, not much was happening. Once things did start happening though, they happened fast. Sometimes the transitions to different scenes weren’t that smooth, and in some places I would read a few pages, confused, then finally figure what’s happening, and have to go back and read those pages over again. This sometimes proved frustrating. Also, the end of the book seemed to come a bit fast, but it also seemed to be somewhat dragged out. Another thing is, looking at the book from an entire-series view, it seemed like maybe the series should have ended there. (I haven’t read any books after this one.) Everything seemed to be wrapped up, and I couldn’t really find any loose ends to be tied up in the next book. On the positive side, this book often left me excited and eager for the next chapter, and often left me with an I-want-to know-what-happens-next feeling. There were some interesting twists and turns in the plot that I didn’t see coming, and the constant switches in which character was narrating kept my attention and interest going. ? This book is for ages 12-15 years, and for grades 5 and up. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this book to adults; the overall plot, style and tone of writing, and characters make this a good book for middle-schoolers, but might be a less interesting read for adults. I also wouldn’t really recommend this book to elementary-schoolers, as there is some violence and graphic, slightly depressing scenes in the book. This book can stand alone even if you haven’t the others in the series but reading them would certainly make this a more enjoyable read. If you enjoyed the slightly disorganized magic and adventures of Percy Jackson, and the defeat-the-ruler and hidden-past feel of Harry Potter, you will enjoy Witch & Wizard Book 3: The Fire by James Patterson.

by David A. Adler

This review is about a picture book describing the life of Frederick Douglass by David Adler. The author describes how he escaped to freedom and how he wrote so much autobiographies about himself. Not only does he tell how Douglass changed the nation, but also he captures many details that other authors don't.

Very interesting plot

Four Doors Down

This book was filled with love and second chances. My only note would be that I was not a fan of Becca throughout the book. I hated that it took so long for her to see that she liked Ryan.
