Junie Have you ever thought that Junie B. Jones would have a smart mouth at the age of 5 years old? Junie B. Jones life is cool. She is young, and she has a bad attitude.

Pinned by Sharon G. Flake

Recommended by Tracy V.
PinnedHave you ever been good at one thing, but bad another. Pinned is about a girl named, Autumn, who was good and loved wrestling, but her grade-level in reading was 2 years behind, and she has to figure out how she can keep up reading, and wrestling at the same time. This book reminds me of , Beacon Hills High, not only did both characters go to Beacon High, but both went through life struggles. What makes this book unique is that in this book the main character get what ever they want, but in the book the struggle is real for Autumn. My advice is to get a dictionary because Autumn’s friend Adonis uses big words. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like Urban Fiction, and a girl wrestling, cooking, and reading.

Recommended by Romon
the abbs Have you ever felt half Indian, and half white? Arnold Spirit is a Indian from a small reservation of Indians that has no life. Arnold is now attending a school called Reardan where the only white people. Everybody Hates Chris reminds me of a Part-Time Indian because Chris is black, and also attends an all white school.

I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like to see how he change from a low life into a smart young boy.

When the Black Girl Sings by Bil Wright

Recommended by Kyajaa W.
When the black girl sings“With something only music can cure…are you willing to find yourself through it?” With the help of her choir director, an struggling to keep her parents together. When the Black Girl Sings tells the story Lahni Schuler, and her love for music. When the Black Girl Sings reminds me of If I stay because like those two books, this has real life situations, and it also has someone overcoming their fears. The thing that makes When the Black Girl Sings stand out is how real it is. ” First, being new to church, I didn’t know all that much about Jesus.” I thought When the Black Girl sings started out on a good foot, even though you might not understand what’s going on. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like family challenges, music, and real-life situations.

Batman by Bill Finger

Recommended by Robert E.
Batman 251I am the person in the dark, I watch over the city, and fight crime, and keep the city safe. The book is about a man that keeps the city safe from evil and villains. They make sure nothing bad happens to the people of the city. Spiderman has the same conflict, only he wears red, and blue while Batman wears black. Batman is unique, and the bad guys are unique as well. You should read Spiderman to start off with. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like superheroes. 

Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes

Recommended by Aiyanna
ninth-wardA hurricane will rise up. Will Lanesha family survive? In New Orleans Ninth Ward, twelve year old Lanesha, who can see spirits, and her adopted grandmother have no choice but to say whether the storm or hurricane Katrina bears down upon them. The Ninth Ward reminds me of, I Survive. The thing that makes The Ninth Ward stand out is sad they were, and how much they didn’t give up on themselves from drowning. I thought The Ninth Ward started out a little slow because the author put a lot of background about Lanesha, and TaShon family, but once they got into what Lanesha and TaShon not giving up. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like adventure.
