Annie and Simone are in Sharry Wright’s Mother Daughter bookclub in San Francisco. Here are some of their favorites:

The Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

I like this book because the friendship was so strong between the two main characters. I Thought the book was written well because the author used so much detail in everything she described.I loved that it was full of imagination and I didn’t want it to end. I think you will enjoy it too! – Annie, age 9

Simone, age 9,  could not choose just one book. She recommends three!

Girl who could fly

The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester

In The Girl Who Could Fly, Piper McLeod lives with her Ma and Pa in Lowland County.  One day Piper decides to jump off the roof, and when she jumps off, she expects to have a hard landing and is bracing herself for the fall.  But instead, she is floating in the air.  She can fly!  When Piper goes to school I.N.S.A.N.E., she meets a sweet-at-first Dr. Hellion but then finds out that Dr. Hellion won’t let her fly and is actually mean inside.  I like this book because I like the concept of flying and The Trollsof people who seem sweet but are really mean inside.  I find it interesting to read about characters who switch personalities during the story.

The Trolls by Polly Horvath

The Trolls is very interesting because it has a lot of stories HP & Sorcerer's_stonefrom Aunt Sally’s and their father’s childhood, and the children get to do really fun things and have a great time.

The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

The Harry Potter series is very special to me because I love it and I take it on trips everywhere with me.  I love it so much because it is funny and interesting and sad, and you have to figure things out that are complicated.

What are your favorite summer reads?
