Emily Windsnap and the Castle Mist

 Author: Liz Kessler

Wow! This is such a good book and also a good series.  Emily's dad is a merman, her mom is human, and she is semi-mer (at least that is what they call her) Semi-mer means that when she is on land she has legs and in water a tail. Well lets move on...

Emily is a perky kid who enjoys being a mermaid, although her mother seems to be having a difficult time reconciling the fact that Emily's more academic studies have been put aside for her mermaid studies, oceanography and underwater hairstyling. The ever-widening chasm between the lives she shares with each of her parents starts to cause a rift between them, and Emily fears they will break up.

But then King Neptune, still angered from the loss of his only true marriage with a human, learns that Emily has uncovered the diamond ring which he gave his beloved decades before. He had hoped it would never find its way to the surface again. As a result, he decides to ban marriage between merpeople and humans and curses the offspring of such unions. Emily is forced to become either fully human or a complete sea creature, ensuring that one of her parents would be lost to her forever, and from there it just gets better.

The Year of Miss Agnes

Author: Kirkpatrick Hill

This book is better then amazing. It starts of in Alaska were there is only a tiny school house and there teachers all leave after a year at the most, but one year another teacher came but this one was different from the rest. The first day of school this teacher started the day with getting rid of the old books and getting new ones, and not only that but she told them to decorate the class room the kids were very exited. The next day Miss Agnes wanted to see how much they knew and they didn't know much. They couldn't read or write very well and couldn't do math ether but at the end of the year they could read, write, add, and subtract.

Owls in the Family

Author: Farley Mowat

Owls in the Family was a good book. The characters were Billy, Wol, Weeps, Mom, Dad, Bruce, Mutt, Murray, and Rex. My favorite character was Wol, even though he is an Owl and couldn't talk. In my opinion the best part of the book is when they get the second owl Weeps, because it might have saved his life. Even though it was a good, I didn't like the part when Billy, the owner of the owls, had to give them away.  Over all it was a great book.

Catching Fire

Yesterday I finished the book Catching Fire it was a really good book. My favorite character was Katniss and my second favorite character was Mags, even though she was old she was truly a genius. What happens first is Katniss and Peeta have to go on the victory tours because they won the previous games. Before the victory tours end they go to the capital and Peeta proposes to Katniss. She is forced to say yes , but the day she sees herself in her wedding dress on TV, the capital announces that two of the remaining Victor's from each district will be in this quarter quell. Which means Katniss will be in the games again and not only that, but one of her two friends Pitta, her husband to be or Haymitch her mentor. The victor's that were chosen were Gloss , Cashmere , Brutus , Enobaria , Beetee , Wiress , Finnick , Mags , Morphlings , Blight , Johanna , Woof , Cecelia , Chaff , and Seeder. At the beginning of the games Finnick immediately helps Katniss and saves Peeta more than once. At the end Katniss blows a hole through the shield and escapes with Beetee and Finnick, but Peeta gets picked up by the capital.
