Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
This book was sort of weird because Anne has no parents and then finally gets adopted parents but her adopted Mom isn't that nice.
After, her adopted Mom gets nice because she sees how smart Anne is.
There is one funny thing about this book. Anne always gets sent to her room. Cleo, age 7
Dreamer Wisher Liar by Charise Mericle Harper
Dreamer Wisher Liar is a wonderful book. I love it so much; it's difficult to put that into a description.
On the back of the book, it says,"Sometimes the best surprises are the ones that were there all along. This is a story about friendship, magic, and a summer that changed everything." That describes it better than I can!
Ashley is the main character, and her best friend is moving away. While her friend is at summer camp before moving to Oregon, Ashley writes to her friend: About babysitting Claire, and what they do together.
While making something in the basement, Ashley finds an old jar labeled, "Wishes". Inside it are balls of paper, someone's wishes. After reading one, it takes you to a time that the person was thinking about when they wrote the wish.
I won't say more; just read this amazing book!
It's one of the best books I've read this summer! Enjoy!

Geronimo Stilton Spacemice Alien Escape by Geronimo Stilton
This book was really funny because in the beginning there is a girl named Sally De Wrench who always says, "yes of course, of course, go ahead and fire it up, I mean, Let's Go!"
I really liked the book because I love reading. Cleo, age 7
Lisa the Lollipop Fairy by Daisy Meadows
I think this book was the best book in the world because Jack Frost made his Goblins get Lisa's lollipop charm but he gave it back. Natalia, age 7
