Kids’ Club Review by Isla: Good night stories for rebel girls

Syndetics book coverGood night stories for rebel girls : 100 tales of extraordinary women by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.

The book is about great girls and women. My favourite story is called Coy Mathis, a transgender, It is about Coy likes girls stuff and turns into a girl. When school started the teacher said she could either use a boy’s bathroom or a disable bathroom. The parents asked the judge, and the judge said she could use whatever bathroom she wants. and they threw a big party.

i love this book, not to mention series. The castle add so much more excitement and adventure that if the series didn’t have the castle there would not be a series at all! i like how the main character is a princess that isn’t all girly and pink.

This book was a great but easy read, the fire in the start of the book made the mystery start from the very first page! Honey sounded very cute, and I really felt sorry for mr Swenson when he was arrested! Ned Nickerson was a great addition to the characters as well!

The secret of the old clockThe secret of the old clock, by Carolyn Keene

This book was a quick but good read, it was nice to see Nancy meeting new people and helping them in every way that she could. The range in characters was amazing, from little Judy, to Grace and Allison Hoover, all the way to Abby Rowen. This was a great read and I can’t wait to read more Nancy Drew!

This is the second book in the Nancy Drew series, and it is compelling and I loved the prospect of a haunted house. The characters were good, though sometimes slightly confusing.overall this was a great read!
