willoftheempress“This book is about Sandry, Briar, Daja, and Tris.  Four young mages who get trapped in Sandry’s cousin’s, who is an empress, country.  It is a very exciting sequel to a very exciting series.”

Kayleigh P. gave “The Will of the Empress” 4 out of 5 stars.


Maureen H. reviewed Gabrielle Zevin’s “Elsewhere.”

elsewhere“It was about a 15 year old girl named Liz who died and is now living in the afterlife called Elsewhere.  She meets her deceased Grandmother who is about the same age as her mother now because of the aging backwards in Elsewhere.  At first, Liz is really upset that she died, but after falling in love and meeting new friends, she learns ‘a life lived in reverse is no different from a life lived forward.'”

Maureen H. gave “Elsewhere” 5 out of 5 stars.
