View in Library Catalog



The novel starts with President's Day is coming soon and the school gets ready for the day off. Mr. Macky dresses up as Abraham Lincoln to get the students at Ella Mentry School excited about their Presidents' Day oral reports. Later the librarian dresses up as George Washington to give some more support for the students' oral reports about one president and facts about them. Students throughout the school were assigned this project. AJ kept the “so-called” president he picked a secret to everyone because he wanted his report to be better than his competition Andrea who was the best at everything and won everything. AJ worked and worked until the day after the break to present the oral report. Andera’s was good and it was AJ’s turn, he picked Benjamin Franklin because he was on the $100 bill. And that’s when no one said anything since Benjamin Franklin was never a president!

Becoming Dr. Q My Journey From Migrant Farm Worker To Brain Surgeon
by Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa

View in Library Catalog



"Becoming Dr.Q," is a phenomenal book that is able to portray the journey many immigrants have to take to become respected individuals in society. Quinones, now an internationally renowned neurosurgeon, was able to pour all his feelings and thoughts into the pages of a book, grabbing the attention of those who want to read about persistence and hard work. The purpose of this book was to not only thank the family and friends that allowed Dr.Q to get to where he is in life today, but to describe the hardships that come with starting a new life in a foreign country with little to no resources. While Quinones has written various other books on more in-depth science and neurosurgery topics, this one highlights the journey he took starting with crossing the fence, ending with getting married, having kids, and being able to solve the kaliman maneuver. Readers can take numerous ideas and morals from "Becoming Dr.Q," but the principal one is to never give up. Though generic, to succeed in anything, it's important to keep a positive mindset and look ahead at all times. I recommend this book to anyone who needs a motivational boost or to anyone taking a big next step.

Walk The Wire David Baldacci
by David Baldacci

View in Library Catalog



Part of the Amos Decker series. This book wasn’t among his best. Usually series book are also stand alones, but I felt if you hadn’t read the first books, you couldn’t really get a feel for the character’s background. Baldacci alluded to it, but I felt it could have used more description if a reader picked this book up out of order. Also, since I’ve read the other books, I could understand the changes the lead character was going through, but that would be lost on someone who hadn’t read them. And since this series is about a character with perfect recall, it seemed like Baldacci didn’t incorporate that as much as he could have to solve the crime. More than one sub-plot also confused things. And parts just fell flat. Hope the next one is better.

Camino Winds John Grisham
by John Grisham

View in Library Catalog



Grisham's books are usually a breezy read and this one falls into that category. Same characters from his previous book, Camino Island. The story begins with a hurricane and a murder. One of the local writers is found dead with suspicious head wounds. When his friends conclude that he couldn't have been hit multiple times by flying debris, they take it upon themselves to investigate. Turns out the manuscript he was working on is a clue. Entertaining.
