So Totally Emily Ebers|
This is a really good book about a girl, Emily, who moves across the country from New Jersey to California. Her parents are divorced and her father is (supposedly) on tour with his band. Her mother is a crazy journalist who Emily can't confide in whatsoever. I really liked this book. I read a different book by this author and hated it, but my friend said this one was good, so I read it and it was!

This book is about a beetle named Marvin. Marvin and his family live behind a hole in a cupboard in a rich New York City family's apartment. The nicest one in the family is an 11- year old named James who receives a pen-and-ink set for his birthday. When Marvin goes to deliver a nickel to James (without being seen) he sees the ink and some paper and can't resist. Marvin draws a beautiful picture. James sees this and wonders who did it. Marvin shows himself to James, and James takes all the credit for the picture. (which is okay with Marvin, because nobody would believe that a beetle did it) Then James is chosen for his special drawing skills to help retrieve a stolen piece of art! Find out why and more if you read this book!

This is a crazy book! It is about a kid named Wahoo (yes, that's his real name) whose dad is a professional animal wrangler. They are running out of money, and right when everything looks bad, Wahoo's dad, Mickey, scores a contract with a TV show called Expedition Survival! Sadly, the show's host is an idiot fake "survivalist" who doesn't actually do his own stunts. On the way to a shoot in the Everglades, Wahoo spies a girl he recognizes from school. Her name is Tuna. Her father is an abusive drunk with a gun and she needs to hide from him. So Wahoo takes her along. This book is really crazy (shocker!). But that's what makes it good.
