After school he was playing outside with a new toy gun, and that's when the day become totally different. He died... by a bullet from a policeman's gun. And now he's a ghost, watching his family, his new friend, his trial... and the policeman's daughter, who is wondering how this could be real.
He is not alone, there is another other ghost boy, Emmitt, who might tell him what is going on... ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

Another awesome adventure with Roz the Robot!
Captured and deactivated at the end of book 1, Roz wakes up at the farm of nice family who bought her from a Discount Robot store. Her job now is to take care of the farm animals, but all she wants is to go back home to her island and her friends, and most importantly, find her son. Will she ever be able to break her programming and leave the farm?
Illustrations and short chapters make this a great family or classroom read - but make sure you pick up book 1 first! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

The explosive conclusion to the bestselling Illuminae Files!
Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik are back, stuck on another, even small spaceship, and while BeiTech isn't chasing them anymore, now they are in a race against the oxygen reserves.
BeiTech is still throwing their weight around on Kerenza, forcing miners to meet grueling quotas, and holding families hostage. Kady's cousin, Asha, is working at the hospital, patching up soldiers and sneaking supplies to the feeble resistance. Seemed life couldn't get any more complicated - until her ex from another planet shows up in a BeiTech uniform...
Told in the same unusual format as the first two, volume III unbelievably lives up to the preceding volumes and had me reading until 1am, laughing, crying and yelling at characters. Read all three and enjoy the wild ride. ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore
