Breathing Room

Hi again! can't.stop.reading here! So today I'm talking about Breathing Room by Marsha Hayles. She did a WONDERFUL job on this book! It is a bit more mature though. I have to admit some of it is rather.... hmm... too descriptive. The main girl was named Evvy, or Evelyn, and she gets tuberculosis. Unfortunately, she must now go to Loon Lake Sanatorium. Her roommates are Beverly, Pearl, and Dena. All have a spunky personality.  Soon, a new girl comes, Sarah. She and Sarah sit next to each other, and begin to bond. The reason I wouldn't recommend this novel to younger kids is it is uber... I have know idea how to put it.. Well! If you know what word I'm looking for leave a comment on my blog! See you guys soon!

The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide

        Hi! I'm can't.stop.reading! Welcome to my blog, today I'm reviewing The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide. Ok, well, this is a fantabulous book! I enjoyed it because it was interactive. It had quizzes, recipes,fill-in the stories,logs, and even a questionnaire. It's actually a wee bit scary for younger kids. This book has true stories about ghosts. I had to think for awhile on some of them on whether or not they were real. Since it is a children's book, I assumed it was fake. Then I re-read it, and I decided it was true. Well! I guess this wraps it up! Oh yeah!!! Great job Stacey Graham!!!!
