The second book in Shusterman’s Accelerati series does full credit to his ability to combine the best elements of good storytelling. A tight, unpredictable plot that ties up every stray sentence into a grand plan, edge-of-seat action and sus

Edenbrooke

Based upon a paper thin plot and told in the voice of a sentimental thirteen year old, Edenbrooke sags like a pretty rag doll without the hint of an Austenian backbone. It is Georgette Heyer-lite. The protagonist is prone to climbing a tree when she ...more

Wow, for a graphic novel, Smile shines a very clear light on the experience of students in grades 7-8: the hopes and concerns, friendships and young love, and most importantly how one can grow through it all.

Clear rating
A hard-done-by kid who's not very smart gets a new 'not-babysitter' who helps to challenge his low self-esteem. The story has a sweet, positive message, even if the execution is not really engrossing as a story.
