A Problematic Paradox

Title: A Problematic Paradox
Author:  Elliot Sappingfield
Publisher: Scholastic
ISBN: 9781524738457

Why Read?: For Fun

Rating: 3/5

The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

Title: The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb
Author:  R. L. Stein
Publisher: Scholastic
ISBN: 9781610676229
Why Read?: For Fun

Thoughts: Most of the thrill in this was from a human monster rather than a supernatural one, which made it a little different.  However, I cannot believe that an archaeologist would say "mummy case" instead of "sarcophagus", a word that many middle schoolers should have come across at some point in history.

Rating: 3/5

Mars Girls

Title: Mars Girls
Author:  Mary Truzillo
Publisher: Apex
