HELLO! My name is Mary Rose and I am in year 6. If you are a bibliophile, bookworm, or as I like to say, bookdragon, or you need a solution to endless boredom at home, you have come to the right place! Here are three book recommendations for you.

Holes by Louis Sachar
Stanley seems set to serve an easy sentence, which is only fair because he is as innocent as you or me. But Stanley is not going where he thinks he is. Camp Green Lake is like no other camp anywhere. It is a bizarre, almost otherworldly place that has no lake and nothing that is green. Nor is it a camp, or at least not the kind of camp kids look forward to in the summertime. It is a place that once held “the largest lake in Texas,” but today it is only a scorching desert wasteland, dotted with countless holes dug by the boys who live at the camp. At Camp Green Lake, the boys “build character” by spending all day, every day, digging holes: five feet wide and five feet deep.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Percy is a twelve year old dyslexic boy, constantly being kicked out of schools by the month. He finds out he is a son of Poseidon, the god of the sea when he is taken by his friends to Camp Half Blood,a refuge to keep them safe from evil spirits and monsters. Join the adventures of Percy Jackson and his demigod friends as they fight mythological monsters and the forces of the Titan Lord Kronos.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
A teenager, arrives in a glade at the center of a giant labyrinth. He wakes up in an elevator with no memory of his past other than the fact that his name is Thomas. When it the elevator doors open, he is pulled into a huge glade by a bunch of teenage boys who also have no memories besides what they should be called. Like the other youths dumped there before him, he has no memory of his previous life. Thomas quickly becomes part of the group and soon after demonstrates a unique perspective that scores him a promotion to Runner status – those who patrol the always-changing maze to find an escape route. Together with Teresa, the only female, Thomas tries to convince his cohorts that he knows a way out.
