The Ash Princess Book Review

By Brittany Hagee

The book in discussion is the book Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian. The book is about a young girl whose entire life has slowly fallen apart in front of her. Theodosia is the girl who is known as Thora or the Ash Princess. Her community used to be a peaceful one that she was supposed to be herring. The Kaiser took the throne and kept Thora as a trophy.  The Kaiser’s right hand man’s daughter became friends with Thora and they grew closer as they grew up. Thora thought there was no hope left as the rebels slowly gave up and she kept paying for their troubles. A guardian from her old community was brought before her to be slaughtered and she knew he was her only hope. As time passed Thora met other Astreans and began to form a plan. The Kaiser’s son, the Prinz, fell in love with Thora and devoted himself to her.  Thora’s plan was going well until she got caught in a battle of love for the young Prinz’s hand in marriage. She continued forward manipulating the Prinz and playing along with the Kaiser’s game. She’s won the battle but the war lays ahead. She’s gathered rebels but is it as strong as an army? Only the future can say and the future lays written within the pages. This book is not for the faint hearted and is very challenging. It’s a page turner that leaves up on edge after every page.

                                                                       

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

By: Marcie Phlipot and McKenna Yearsley

The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw was a good book in our opinion. We liked the book because it wasn’t boring to read! It wasn’t the best, but it was still pretty good. Marcie liked how relatable Greg is. McKenna liked how dysfunctional the whole family is. The book is funny and relatable. We liked how Greg was investigating who took his lunch snacks, who took them? You will have to read the book to find out! Overall we enjoyed reading this book and hope you do!

Goosebumps: The Haunted Mask
By Aaron Sylvester



This book review is about the goosebumps book called the haunted mask. Now the haunted is a great book like all other goosebump books, so I will give you a rundown of the book. So our main character starts off by being really Hungry at lunch in her school so her ‘’friends’’ give her a sandwich to eat. It didn’t seem suspicious at first but when she took a bite she realized that there was a worm inside so she screamed and everyone laughed at her, so she wanted revenge on the boys that gave her the sandwich. Cut to the night of Halloween she plans to meet with her friend to trick or treat later. Her mother came home and brought a sculpture of her head from her art class. She thinks it’s creepy at first then she has an idea. So she went to this new party store that just opened the store was closed but saw a man inside that let her in. She browed threw the masks but ended up in the back finding even more horrifying masks and the guy reluctantly sells her the mask she picked. So he tapes the head to a broom and puts on the mask and ends up scaring the boys that gave her the worm sandwich. At the end she can’t take off her mask without having something that represents love, so she gets the head and she takes off the mask and the book ends. So in short I think the book ended very abruptly and the side characters could have had more details of their personality’s to make the book better, but in short I very much liked the book and recommended it to anyone who likes these kind of books and I rate it four out of five stars.
