October's Bookworm Author

     Buzda, Age 9 is October's Bookworm Author! Buzda is a fun-loving child who enjoys hanging with her little brother and her dog. Reading and creative writing keep her busy as well as bringing her own worlds to life on her favorite online games such as Minecraft and Little Big Planet!

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Reviewed by: Buzda, Age 9

This book is by Rick Riordan and is about a boy named Percy Jackson, who finds out he is a demi-god and Zeus' Bolt is missing! The question still remains, who is Percy's father? Who stole the bolt? Who will Percy and his friend Grover and Annabeth meet on their quest?
This is a good book, and I like it because you learn a little about the Greek gods. I think people that like Greek gods and monsters should read this book and I hope that the author carries on writing the series.

Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carmen

Patrick Carmen stopped by our table to say hi before his lecture at a local university!

     Skeleton Creek, by Patrick Carmen, is a spine-chilling read that will have you roped in from the first chapter! Ryan, a teenage boy who loves a good mystery and his best friend, Sarah Fincher, who always has her camera, realize that there is something sketchy about their home town of Skeleton Creek. Are their suspicions real or the imaginings of two curios teens?
     I love the video messages from Sarah throughout the book. Skeleton Creek is a unique story that uses text and video to create a compelling story!
I recommend this book for people who have difficulty getting into chapter books and there are four books in the series! Perfect for October! The videos give you something to keep reading for. It may not be good for young children or for those who scare easily.    - Rockin' Robin, 10
