The Unbelievable Oliver and the Four Jokers by Pseudonymous Bosch

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought I’d enjoy this kid’s mystery more than I did. It took forever to get to the mystery and then the mystery got solved too easily. The birthday boy was showered in gifts and wasn’t very nice to the other kids. The “punishment” made the reader understand how the birthday boy got to be such a handful.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this book on the LGBT books for kids list. I checked it out of the library, not realizing it was a graphic novel.

I loved the illustrations and the story, which was about doing what you should do, not what everyone else expects of you. The princesses accept each other the way they are, and help others during their adventure.

Daisy Jones and the Six, by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones & The Six

I didn’t realize that this was written by the same author as The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.  I loved that book, too.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! It has become a running joke with my family and friends because I carried it around with me for months. I never disliked it, it was just that the world seemed hell bent on not letting me finish it.

The book was written like a Rolling Stones article. Each person involved got his say. It was a different approach to telling the story, but it worked. I loved it.

The illustrations in the book are great! The story left a little to be desired. Why were the mermaids on the subway? How did grandma know where to find them? I am glad that the grandma handled the situation the way she did, but it needed a few things fixed before I could give it a higher rating.
