Top 3 Right Now: Chloe

This week we are featuring Chloe, a Teen Explore Summer gold medal reader from the Lake Stevens Library:
So tell me Chloe, what books are your favs right now?


The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death, by Daniel Pinkwater

High school freshmen Walter Galt and Winston Bongo have an unusual pastime: they sneak out of their apartments in the middle of the night while their parents are asleep and go see obscure movies at the Snark Theater. But when they meet fellow snarker Rat, journey down Lower North Aufzoo Street to Beanbender’s, encounter the great detective Osgood Sigerson, help solve a kidnapping case, and endure avocado danishes–that’s when things start to get really weird. An ordinary night of Snarking Out will turn into a hilarious adventure they will never forget. The adventure continues in the lesser, but still noteworthy, The Snarkout Boys and the Baconburg Horror.


Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card

In the distant future, insectoid aliens have attacked Earth twice, and all humanity fears that they will return for a third, devastating blow. Andrew “Ender” Wiggin is a third child in a world of two-child population restrictions, commissioned by the government in the hope that he will be the one to finally destroy the alien menace. While still a small child, he is sent to a military school on a satellite to learn the art of war. For him and his fellow students, the most important training takes place in the battle games they play against each other. Ender is the best of the best, but if he is going to face the buggers, he will have to survive jealous fellow students who want to kill him and teachers determined to drag him past the limits of human endurance. If you’ve seen the movie, don’t be fooled: the book is better! (Warning: if you like this book, you will definitely want to read the sequel, Speaker for the Dead.)


Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke

Meggie Folchart’s father Mo has a secret: when he reads aloud, the characters leave the story and come into the real world. Unfortunately, a terrible villain who escaped from the story Inkheart is after Mo to capture and enslave him, and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants. To save her father and create a happy ending, Meggie will take a frightening journey and join forces with her book-obsessed great-aunt Elinor, the fire-eater Dustfinger and his apprentice Farid, and Fenoglio, author of Inkheart. This lengthy book has magic and a touch of romance, and is great for anyone who loves books.”

Thank you Chloe! I can’t even begin to tell you how happy it makes me to see someone review a Daniel Pinkwater book! <3
