The young wizard Merlin is just getting comfortable when a new ancient threat arrives to terrorize the land. The last of the fire dragons have awakened and is wreaking havoc upon the island. Only Merlin who's wizard powers are growing stronger by the minute can save the island. But in order to face the dragon he must uncover many secrets and what he learns might be just a little bit surprising. I really liked this book because Merlin is very well represented and the book has many twists an turns.

In the second installment of T.A. Barron's saga he is able to once again bring the mystical wizard Merlin to life. Starting off right where the first one left off Merlin is using his powers to restore peace to the land. But when his mom is gravely injured the only way to save her is to master the seven songs of wizardry.

Reviewer: Bobby D.
Airhead is about a girl named Em Watts who is hospitalized after being hit by a falling television. She wakes up in the body of a supermodel, Nikki Howard, and has no idea what happened. This book was not what I was expecting, but I kind of liked it. It was a little more science fiction-y than I am used to reading from Meg Cabot, but it was a good book.

The Wright 3|
The Wright 3 is about three friends named Tommy, Calder and Petra. A very old house in their town is about to come down, and it's up to them to save it. But in the process, they discover some thieves who are trying to steal some of the stain-glass windows. Double trouble! I loved the book because it's very intense and no matter where I stopped I was on a cliff-hanger.

Goosebumps: The Haunted Mask|
R. L. Stine
It is scary. It is about many haunted faces. The main character is Carly Beth and she puts on a mask that she can't get off!
Reviewer: Noah S.
The Corn Grows Ripe|
I thought this book was much too for any 6th grade level. The story line was pretty good, but there were a few chapters that were unnecessary and off-topic. I did like the lesson learned by the main character and the author wrote a good parable, to explain it.
