Altona Middle School hosted our Awesome Box for one month but we got so many responses that we still have some to share with you. It can be cold in the space-time vortex. A certain time traveler could really use a good book to read by the warm glow of the TARDIS console. Thank you, Altona students, for suggesting these books:
Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass is recommended for “my friends because they like realistic fiction which is what type of book [this] is.” Every Soul A Star is a book about friends brought together by a desire to see The Great Eclipse.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is recommended for “magic fans.” If you have not explored the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling in the Harry Potter series, now is the time! You will want to return again and again and, thanks to the incredibly popular movie series, Pottermore and a series of screenplays in progress by Rowling, herself, you will be able to. It is not too late to get in on the Potter phenomenon!
The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch is described as “an amazing dystopian book” and is recommended for “people who like dystopian fiction.”
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan is recommended for “people who like fan fiction.” Rick Riordan is recommended by Awesome Box users more than any other author. If you are new to his work, you might want to start here.
Thank you for filling our favorite Time Lord’s holidays with great book suggestions! After reading these great books, maybe even his enemies will feel some winter cheer!
