The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
Reviewed by Anish

The Son of Neptune is an amazing, action-packed thriller which gives readers a great way to use their time. The book is about an amnesiac Percy Jackson who is trying to recollect his memories. In the process, he helps a Roman camp by freeing Thatanos, the god of death. That stopped ancient monsters from resurrecting themselves. I really like this book because the story flowed very well and there were surprises waiting on every page. Also, the characters were very humorous. I believe this book would be good for kids within the age of 9–13, because, at times, the story is a bit crazy.

The Call of the Wild by Jack London
Reviewed by Anish

Call of the Wild by Jack London is an amazing story on how man instinctively returns to their natural ways when facing nature. The story revolves around Buck, a dog, who is forcibly taken to Alaska. In Alaska, he travels with many different owners, some which he loves and some which he hates. During this time, he becomes very experienced, strong and fit. After his beloved owner, John Thornton was killed, Buck becomes a fierce wild dog. This book was very appealing because the author humanizes the characters which allowed me to easily tell what the dogs felt. Also, the author provides vivid details throughout the story.

Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
Reviewed by Anish

One book I have read recently was the book Walk Two Moons. The story revolves around a girl named Salamander, whose mother recently died. She goes on a trip to Idaho to visit her mothers grave and, on the way there, tells about her friend Phoebe and her disappearing mother. While telling her story, Salamander notices the similarities between her mother's disappearance/death and Phoebe's disappearing mother. Though this story was humorous and touching, I believed the story was very boring at times at it did not flow well. Also, I thought the characters did not seem real because of their weird behavior.

Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
Reviewed by Anish

Inheritance was the final book of the Inheritance series, which revolved around a dragon rider Eragon. In this book, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, finally confront Galbatorix, the malicious leader of Alagesia. Soon after Eragon and Saphir succeeded in the siege of Galbatorix's defenses and toppled the king, Eragon makes a final decision to leave Alagesia forever. I believe Inheritance was an entertaining book with lots of action and comedy. It was also very touching because of Eragon's final desicion to leave his home country forever.
