Anne of Green Gables
by L. M. Montgomery

This is a classic book, and it's really good!  Anne is a skinny, freckled, redheaded orphan. People adopt her to be a servant- not a child- then send her back to the orphanage.  She gets adopted by an elderly couple named Marilla and  Matthew. They almost sent her back because they wanted a boy. Then they fall in love with her. The rest of the book is about Anne's
adventures with Matthew and Marilla.

She makes a friend, Diana Barry.  She also goes to teaching school and wins a scholarship. This is a great book and one of a series of 8!

Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger
by Louis Sachar

This book is totally hilarious!  It had me laughing out loud!  The book is a collection of short stories about funny kids on the thirtieth story of a really tall school.  The kids do really funny things.  From finding out that the beloved teacher Ms. Jewls is having a baby to getting a substitute teacher who can read minds to eating Miss Mush's awful cooking, you will never be bored when reading this book!  This is the sequel to Sideways Stories at Wayside School and Wayside School is Falling Down, so you might get confused if you don't read those first.

When I first saw this book, I was skeptical.  It looked like it would be all about action, which I don't like as much as other kinds of books.  One day I just opened up the book.  When I started reading, I could not stop!  This book is for ages 9-14.  It is perfect for ANY type of kid because it has a little bit of everything.  This book is a mixture of adventure, action, comedy, magic, fun and pretty much everything ele in a great book!

Deep and Dark and Dangerous
by Mary Downing Hahn

This book is a scary mystery.  However, it is not very scary.  I think anyone ages eight to twelve will love this book.  It is similar to Wait Till Helen Comes and Stolen Children.  Deep and Dark and Dangerous is a nominee for the 2012 Nutmeg award. This book will have you turning pages day and night.

Thirteen year old Ali is looking through boxes when she comes across a torn photo.  She recognizes her mom and her Aunt Dulcie as children at their house in Maine.  But the photo is torn, and Ali discovers a third girl in the photo.  All that she can see is the girl's shoulder and a few strands of hair.  The back of the photo is no help, either.  It says Claire, Dulcie, and T.  When Aunt Dulcie visits, she invites Ali to come to Maine with her to babysit her daughter, Emma.  Ali is dying to go.  Her mother is skeptical, but her dad and Dulcie insist.

In Maine, Emma is a sweet little angel  That is, until Sissy shows up.  Sissy is a mean, nasty girl and a terrible influence on Emma.  Ali is sure that Sissy knows about the torn photo, why her mom and aunt stopped coming to Maine, and why they pretend they don't know anything when they hear the name Teresa Abbott.  Ali is dying to find out what Sissy knows, even though Dulcie has insisted that Emma can't play with Sissy.  Could Sissy be a ghost?  Read on to find out about the mystery of the torn photo.
