    I read the book Secret of the Night Ponies. This book was about a 13 year old girl named Jessica who lives on a ranch by the ocean. This book takes place 50 years ago. Jessie learns that some mean men who live on the main land are corralling wild ponies so that they can be shipped out to be made into HORSE MEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jessie knows she must stop this. She and her friends pretend to have a sleepover and at late at night they sneak out and bring the ponies to Lonesome Isle, an abandoned island rumored to be haunted. The ponies are delivered safely to the old stable and when news breaks that the ponies were saved, the mean men choose to let the ponies be wild from all the good publicity. :)

    I read the book called This Totally Bites (poison apple book) by:Ruth Ames.
    It is about a girl named Emma-Rose, she has a family member coming over because she needs to help her mom with the exhibit CREATURES OF THE NIGHT. Her great-aunt Margo ( who came from Romania) resembles all the characteristics of a vampire: from Transylvania,has dark hair, doesn’t like the sunshine,nocturnal(Emma-Rose only saw her at night time) hates the taste of garlic, loves rare meat, has very pale skin….. You have to find out the other ones as you read the book. As she reads them over on the same website. They all seem to resemble her to. In the beginning of the story Em has a nightmare, there are many glowing red,evil eyes staring at her. Later on in the book she has the same exact nightmare again. At a student council meeting a so called “7th grade princess” Ashlee Lambert wants the gym to be decorated in a bunch of pink items for the Halloween dance. Em finally stands up to Ashlee and says that it should be orange and black… the most common Halloween colors. Ashlee gets mad and the teacher in the classroom has once again suggested the democratic debate. Raise your hand if you want it to be orange and black then annoyingly says pink. Em is in-charge of decorating everything. Emma swiftly decorates the gym and then runs two miles to the Museum of Natural History. She hopes that her parents don’t see her. She walks into the room with all the bats and they open there eyes and what does she see? Read the book and find out.
    She sees a lot of other fledglings in the room. One of them she recognizes!
    It is….. Well i don want to spoil the surprise so YOU have to read this book. Is Emma-rose Paley a real vampire? :-)

    I read the book Island of the Aunts. It is about three old ladies- Etta, Coral,and Myrtle- who take care of magic animals on a secret island. One day, when they watched a nature show about animals that are extinct, they realized that they might become extinct too.

    “Who will take care of the island when we’re gone?” they asked each other. The three come to the conclusion that they must KIDNAP CHILDREN to take their places.

    The kids they took, Minette and Fabio are especially nice and soon they love the island as much as the three sisters.

    When a multi-billionaire discovers the island, it’s up to Minette and Fabio to save it.

    I won’t tell you the rest, because you might want to read it!!! :)

    I read the book Coffehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors. This book is about a girl named Katrina who helps her grandma with her coffee shop. When Katrina notices a homeless guy in the alley she takes him some day old pastries, coffee, and chocolate covered coffee beans. In a few minutes she sees the empty cup rolling across the street so she knows he drank it. When Katrina then goes to school, in the middle of an assembly, the guy walks in and says he must reward Katrina for her selflessness. Embarrassed and confused, Katrina slinks down as the teenage homeless guy scans the crowd for her ( which is very embarrassing because he is wearing a kilt). He spots her though and after school says that he can grant Katrina what she most desires. At first she thinks this dude is crazy but then she notices, with help from a coffee shop employee, that this guy is a guardian angel and really can give her what she most desires. What does Katrina wish for? Read the book to find out!
