The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester

The book I read over the summer was called "THE GIRL WHO COULD FLY", by Victoria Forester.  The main character in this book was a girl named Piper. Piper lived on a farm with her mom and dad. Piper has magic powers where she can fly in the air. For example on July 4th her family and friends and some relatives were going to have a July 4th picnic in the backyard. At the picnic there was a fly ball hit by a little boy. Piper went in the air while flying and caught the ball. Piper had to go to a private school. This is all the information i can give you.Bye

Hunting Memories by Barb Hendee

The book I chose was Hunting Memories by Barb Hendee. It is a fantasy fiction book. The main character Elisha is a vampire, who is living in Portland with her two companions Phillip a vampire, and Wade a human; who all have telepathy. One day they receive a letter from Rose, another vampire who wants to reach out to others of her kind. Elisha has found out a new way to draw out victim's blood without having to kill them. She wants to share this new information with Rose. Elisha also wants other vampires to come and form a haven and bond against Julian Ashton; a vampire who has been killing his own kind for the past century. She wants to meet Rose face to face, but doesn't know what to expect. She may even be a spy for Julian, but Elisha is willing to risk it. Memories are coming out from the past that all seem to connect with each other.            I enjoyed Hunting Memories by Barb Hendee. I read the summary on the back and thought it would be interesting, I also noticed that it was a vampire book and I enjoy those types of stories. The thing I liked most about the book was the plot. It reminded me a little of the Twilight Saga. I think that anyone who enjoys vampires and creatures living in a world together will enjoy this book.

Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Cover imageThis year I read the book Found by:Margaret Peterson Haddix. Basically this book is about a group of kids who have just discovered that they're really from the past,because they were brought to the future by time travelers to get money. Therefore time got damaged so now Jonah,Chip,Katherine, and Alex all have to travel back to their own time to fix time. That the time travelers damaged by taking them from history. I think that this book is science fiction because there's no such thing as time travel. Also because there's no such thing as an elucidator(a futuristic weapon that can do anything even turn people invisible.)

One of the reasons I liked this book was because there's a lot of adventure in it because they found out chip and Alex are really brothers whereas Chip is a king and Alex is a prince. So they have to travel back to the fifteenth century to fight in a battle to defend the crown. While there's a lot of adventure there's also a lot of drama because everyone is sad because they're scared they'll die and be stuck in the past forever. I would recommend this book to people who like action,adventure,drama,historic fiction,science fiction,fantasy,and romance because this book and the others in this series have all of these things in them.
