Where the mountain meets the moon

By Grace Lin

My bff, Guy Raz, recommended I read this book. When Guy tells you to do something, you should.

Everyone reads upside down, right?

This is the story of a girl who wants to change her family’s fortune. Her family is very poor and it makes her mom very sad. Her dad tells her stories to make her happy. Minli (the girl) goes on an adventure to find the Old Man of the Moon.  The adventure was really cool and there are legends and stories within the story.

I read this book in three days because I could not put it down, unlike the Nancy Drew that took me two weeks.

I highly recommend this book to everyone. Parents could read it to their kids or kids could read it to their parents. Just say Bridget and Guy told you to read it!

I just finished her second book  (I loved it) and can’t wait for the third to come out. I hope to interview her and know some of my readers know her. Help me meet Grace Lin? Please, pretty please with a cherry on top?

Nancy Drew 173: Danger on the Great Lakes


By Carolyn Keene

This is my first big kid book to review. Even though I am only going into second grade, I read this book entirely by myself. It took me two weeks to read. I am very proud I kept reading it.

Nancy Drew is a girl detective. I love her. [Bridget note: Maybe I will be Nancy Drew for Halloween] I am almost done a second one.

In this book, Nancy is trying to find out who is the jewelry robber. The jewelry robber robbed jewelry stores in Mexico and the United States. But that is just in the books, it doesn’t mean it happened in real life. It is called on the Great Lakes because she is on a cruise ship on the Great Lakes. I live on the Great Lakes and haven’t seen a cruise ship, but it sounds cool.

Nancy’s friends, Bess and George, are with her. Did you know George is a girl?

I think this would be a good book for girls and their moms, grandmothers, aunts or anybody to read together. My mom says she read Nancy Drew too. My babysitter said she read Nancy Drew.

Dear reader, did you read Nancy Drew and which one was your favorite?
