Mrs. Starks recommends...

  • The Girl from Felony Bay by John Thompson--This Children's Book Award nominee is a page-turning tale of Abbey, a tomboy, tries to figure out the mystery surrounding her father's accident and his being accused of a crime he didn't commit. Along with her new BFF, she goes for an adventure in the South Carolina low country. 
  • Sky Jumpers  by Peggy Eddleman--If you like science fiction and imagining what could happen in the future, you'll love this book.  Hope and her friends in White Rock have to survive in a world that has been torn apart by war where most our our technological inventions are gone.  Their lives aren't without adventure, though.  Read Sky Jumpers to find out about amazing adventures and how to survive "Bomb's Breath"!
