And the winner is: Restart got the most votes out of my book shop mega sale pile and as promissed – here is the review. Before I forget, thanks for participating and helping me pick a book. It always means so much to me if you guys like what I do and give me some feedback.
Now let’s get started:
The main character in this book is Chase Ambrose. He falls off his roof and suffers a memory loss. When he wakes up in hospital he can’t remember who he was anymore. Everyone has their side of Chase. When he goes back to school kids react very differently to his return. For some he is a bully. To others, like Kimberly who is secretly in love with Chase, he is a whole different person. Whom to believe? Who was he before the accident and who will he become once his memory comes back?
How did I like the book?
I loved the book because people stood up for Chase. Also the moral of the story is to give everyone a second chance even the people who are bystanders and disruptors. People can change. Even real bullys. Don’t give up on them!
Who is that book for?
kids 8 years and older
Did you know that there is a CRATER on the surface of Mercury that’s big enough to hold the state of Texas? Or how about this: if you stay at the Jule’s undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida you will SCUBA DIVE to your room! How cool is that? I have one more for you: male pandas do a HANDSTAND while peeing to mark trees.

Why would you have a paper towel tower in your livingroom? Dozens of paper planes trying desperate to get the longest throw? Or dress up as a cockroach in the middle of a stadium? Well, Milo and his parents did all of that because it was the family’s dream to get a Guinness World Record. Unfortunately every time they tried, they failed. Is there an award for the most failures? If so, Milo’s family would definitely win this one.

Boring, Illinois. Brian can definitely think of a better way to spend his holidays. He couldn’t stay at home as his scientist dad got stationed at the North Pole. So Brian had to go to uncle Gary’s house, because he was the only one who had the time to take care of him over the summer.

He was a very serious, shy and quiet guy but Alexa and her friends Josie, Tom and Michael made him feel welcome.

The fluffy, groomed cat Maximilian was used to live in the “most fashionable townhouse in London.” Sitting on a comfortable, red cushion and having only the best of the best food a cat can eat.
I liked the book because it is a book about friendship. Maximilian didn’t give up and although he was sad at the beginning of the story when he lost his home but he was all happy again in the end. What I didn’t like was that Countess Arlington wanted to drown Max. I found that a bit rough and not necessary.
I would recommend the book for kids 8 years and older. It has 196 pages and is not so hard to read. Rating: 8/10

Es gibt mehr Kühe als Einwohner in Yawnee Valley. Miles war nicht happy, als seine Mutter ausgerechnet dort eine neue Arbeit fand und sie umziehen mussten…
Um was geht es?
Was mochte ich an dem Buch?
Miles war früher ziemlich gemein zu seinen Freunden. Aber er lernt dazu. Am besten mochte ich das Ende aber das will ich Euch noch nicht verraten.
Besonders gut haben mir auch die Illustrationen von Kevin Cornell gefallen.
