“Someone’s Story” is an amazing novel by B.A. Bellec. Before I even get started I have to say it’s hard to believe this is his debut novel. I read it from cover to cover in two days. The story centers around Someone. Readers never know his name, but it’s part of the intrigue that draws you in deeper. When Someone’s father gets transferred, it’s a new city and a new school – and being the new kid definitely sucks. Someone quickly finds his own circle of friends though, a group of kids that really only fit in with each other. Everyone in the group has their own issues to deal with but it’s Someone’s journey that will keep you up reading. Someone has some mental health issues that play out during the story but not completely until the end and you’ll wonder how he gets through each day. He has a great circle of friends who support him, a loving father (with his own secret) and a great counselor he meets with often, but that doesn’t stop Someone from sinking into his own abyss.

I enjoyed “Ash Forest: and the King’s Gold” by Stephen Pratt so much and was excited to learn that it is the first book in a new fantasy series for teens.

“The Haunting of Cedar Hill Plantation” is the second book by Margaret J. McMaster about a girl named Phoebe Sproule. Since I read the first book in the series last year, I was excited to see what kinds of situations Phoebe would get drawn into next.
In “Larry the Caterpillar’s Groovy Journey” by Alicia Wallace, you read about a caterpillar named Larry who was just born on a green leaf. I liked reading “Larry the Caterpillar’s Groovy Journey” because it showed me how you can be strong, and not just with your muscles.
