    Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin Manuel Miranda

    Review by Hailey, age 14: I listened to this book as an audiobook. In some parts it was confusing because the words were connecting to the pictures that I could not see. This book showed in many ways how the events and concepts shown in Hamilton are just as crucial in our everyday lives as they were in Hamilton's time. I enjoyed hearing how these concepts were applied to our lives. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I were to read the hard copy. Overall I really enjoyed this book. In one...    Read More »

    One of Us is Lying

    Review by Mackenzie, age 11. This book taught me all about stereotypes and how people define you just because of your past. I loved how every chapter left you wanting to read more. I was so intrigued by this book I forgot what time it was when I finally took my eyes off the page!    Read More »

    The Lovely War by Julie Berry

    Review by Addison, age 13. Lovely War is a book about a group of four young adults who all get their stories intertwined. It's set during the World War and it is narrated by the gods. It's a very good read but can be a bit gruesome at times considering it is set during the war. This book was: amazing, a tearjerker, intense, powerful, unforgettable, inspiring and a page turner. 5/5 stars    Read More »

    First Place- "Unbelievable" by Emma

    Unbelievable Do you know how they say that everything happens for a reason? That we’re all on some sort universal clock and everything that happens isn’t just a coincidence. It’s the same principle that time travel is based on. That maybe, just maybe, there is a chance that we could go backwards in time and watch events unfold before our eyes. Or jump forward and see all the possibilities in the future. Now, I’m not one for believing in coincidences but if the events from the...    Read More »

    Second Place- "Dust and Stars" by Noel

    Almost there, just a few more feet. The faint light in the distance wavered with a rhythmic blinking. A dusty, dun moth flitted in an uncoordinated pattern towards the beacon of light. Grains of effervescent dust sprinkled from the moth like salt over a fresh meal. With each wing beat the light grew excitingly closer. Ripples of dust erupted when the moth smacked into the pristine, dewy leaf. The stuffed animal of a bug scuttled over with eager twitches of it’s antennae. But then grew    Read More »
