The City of Ember

The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

Another one I listened to on CD, I like having the noise while I do housework! It was very intriguing a good read for a 10-15 year old boy or girl. It's about a city underground that's loosing power. They don't know they're underground's sort of a mystery. I really really liked it and am listening to the second book, The People of Sparks, right now. I enjoy the way the writer expresses herself.

The Mysterious Benedict Society

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

Absolutely loved it! Would appeal to both girls and boys. I listened to it on CD and the reader, Del Roy, was very good. I wasn't sure what to excpect and couldn't guess where the plot would lead me. I like to be surprised and not be able to guess at what's going on. It was refreshing to read (listen to) something so unique.
