In the Forest by Art Collins is written for young readers and reminds me a bit of the Tucket Adventures series by Gary Paulsen because of the loyalty between the characters. In the Forest is a short book full of adventure and just the beginning of a series. I felt like the synopsis described the entire book to the point of making it almost unnecessary to read. That discouraged me and made it difficult to read through because there wasn’t really any unknown factor.
Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer is the companion to Between the Lines by the same authors. Cute, charming and a clean romantic story with some teenage angst added to the mix. The story is innocent but still has enough stress for the characters to deal with, which raises the interesting factor! Definitely a fun read!
The Janitors series by Tyler Whitesides reminds me of the Bailey School Kids Monster series by Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones; only a bit more mature. The series is more sophisticated than I thought it would be before I began reading Janitors. Each book in this series is a fun, easy read brimming with adventure and a few twists thrown in. This is a lighthearted series for readers who just want a quick book to get through or a book fun enough to sit down and enjoy!
