Review by Patrick:  Well, there are two stories.  One is about a mysterious man who always carries buckets.  Two is about this woman that keeps a book in her arms, no matter what.  I thought that it was cool to go on the mysteries with Cici.

Review by Vicki:  There are two goals.  One, they try to find out why the man is carrying buckets.  Two, why a lady is always holding a book.  Cici’s Journal is  agreat book.  It’s great because it has two separate stories.  They’re both great mysteries.  Another reason is that Cici is a great character.

This book is about a girl who likes to do crafts.

I didn’t like this book.  It seems mean and and I found it confusing when I read it.  When Birdie talks to Evan she seems mean and rude.

The book is about a girl who loves stickers an she got a new batch of stickers and she thinks they are magic.

I think it is good because it is like very funny and a little educational.  It is cool that they give us stickers too and it is a book about stickers.

This is a book about creative Lego sculptures and art made by the author.

I thought the book was amazing!  The author is a Lego master builder and a creative genius.  The sculptures truly are fantastic.  The book makes me want to build tons of Legos.  It gave me a lot of ideas!

This is a book that tells the tale of Priyanka, a girl who was bullied.  She found a pashmina.  It took her to wonderful places and then went to the real version and it was nothing like where the pashmina took her.

A tale that in every way is magical and amazing because you can see how to change your life.

Ruby Clyde Henderson’s life is not easy.  Her father was shot before she was born and now her mother is in jail for a crime she did not commit.  Now she has to stay with her aunt who has secrets of her own.

I loved this book.  I loved it because it was about a girl who was not afraid to be different.  She always thought of others before herself.  She watched out for herself and the people she loved.  That is what a girl is:  strong and brave.

A girl named Ella moves next to an abandoned orphanage and discovers it’s haunted by a ghost - Mary - who died there years before.  The reader slowly discovers what happened to Mary.

The writing was so well done - you can feel the fear of Mary at the orphanage.  I thought the ending was lame, though.  The book kept me hooked but I was disappointed in the ending.  Drawings and diary entries were engaging and well designed.
