Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

Hi Everyone,

Today, I will be reviewing Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian.

Book Blurb inside the Jacket: "For Amelia Van Hagen, scooping cones at Meade Creamery has always been more than just a summer job. It's a sisterhood, one dating back to when the legendary ice cream stand first opened with an all-girl staff. Amelia has learned so much from the older girls over the years: like who the best teachers are, how to lie to her mother, and the perfect amount of sprinkles for a sundae. And as the newest manager, she's determined to pay it forward and give the girls in her charge their best summer yet. But then Grady Meade, the grand-nephew of the stand's founder, arrives unexpectedly to take over the business, showing little deference for the girls and their traditions. Grady's presence threatens everything Amelia wants to protect-the icecream stand, her friendships, and, most inconveniently, her heart."

Review: I love this book so much! It was solid. It made me wish…

Hi Everybody, Today, I will be reviewingRoses and Radicals: The Epic Story of How Americans Women Won The Right To Voteby Susan Zimet. Thank you to Penguin Random House for giving me an finished copy of this book!
Book Blurb on the jacket: "The United States of America is almost 250 years old, but American women won the right to vote less than a hundred years ago. The Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution--the one granting women suffrage--only succeeded because a courageous group of women had been relentlessly demanding the right to vote for more than seventy years. The leaders of the suffrage movement are heroes who were fearless in the face of ridicule, arrest, imprisonment, and even torture. The story of women's suffrage is epic, frustrating, and as complex as the women who fought for it.Roses and Radicalscelebrated this captivating yet overlooked part of…

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Hi Everybody!
Today, I will be reviewing Wonder by R.J. Palacio.

Book Blurb on the back: "August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial difference that prevented him from going to a mainstream school--until now. He's about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?"

Review: I love this book so much. It is so good. I like that this book is about accepting people for who they are based on their differences. My favorite character is Auggie because even though he has a birth defect, that doesn't stop him from being an ordinary kid. My second favorite character is Auggie's mom because she stands up for Auggie when people are mean to him, and she fights to get the things that Auggie needs. My least favorite character is Julian becaus…

As if that wasn't weird enough, the Department of Extranormal Operations has captured a humanoid sea creature on a mysterious mission. Could these incidents be related?

Hi Everybody!

Hi everybody!
The blog has made a major change. This blog is running on blogger instead of WordPress. The old platform that the blog was running on was a little bit boring and there wasn't a lot of room for the blog to grow over time. This blog is about books, tv shows, and movie reviews. Please let us know in the comments section below about what kind of things we should post about.
See you guys later!
Love,
