Space Case by Stuart Gibbs
Recommended for Grade 5 – This is a sci-fi/mystery set on Moon Base Alpha, the first colony on the moon. If you are looking for a good “who done it”, you’re sure to find yourself turning the pages to learn who killed Dr. Holtz. You won’t help but like clever, funny, twelve-year old Dashiell Gibson.
Luck Uglies by Paul Durham
Recommended for Grade 5 – Many years earlier, a secret society named Luck Uglies had fought the Bog Noblins, and now, neither monsters nor secret society members exist. Or do they? You’re in for a wild romp with Rye O’Chanter, a somewhat clumsy 11-year-old and her best friends Quinn and Folly. The first book in a trilogy.
