The End of the Beginning by Avi

"My favorite part of the story was when Edward, an ant, said to Avon, a snail, 'Don't look at the world with your eyes, look at the world with your heart.' Then Avon said, 'But I don't have eyes on my heart!'"

— Recommended by Megan Jamison, 8 of Georgia

I Survived the Nazi Invasion, 1944 by Lauren Tarshis

"My favorite part was when Hannah found Max and Zena's papa and all three of them sailed to America. It was a sad and a happy ending."

Warriors series by Erin Hunter

"This series caught my eye when I was about 9. One of the things I love about it is the books seem never-ending and I kept looking for more."

Take Two by Julia DeVillers & Jennifer Roy

"I liked when Mason and Jason scared Emma with the gecko because it was funny. I also liked when Payton tripped in the giant hamster ball, because I could imagine that happening and it was absolutely hilarious."

— Recommended by Sarah Berliner, 9 of South Burlington
