In just one hour, 15-year-old Josh Newman's life had changed completely. The bookstore where he had (at last) found summer employment was blown up by a magical duel between a strange little man in a suit and the bookstore owner, Nick Flamel, a man Josh had previously thought of as a little, well, bookish. Now, Josh and his twin sister were being dragged along on a quest to find Hekate, the goddess of three faces. Flamel realized that Josh and Sophie were the twins whose power would save all or destroy all. Hekate would be the one to awaken their powers so that they could join in the race between Flamel and the Dark Elders, who wanted the Codex, a book Flamel had guarded for 600 years. The strange man in the suit, John Dee, succeeded in grasping most of the book, but two pages were still in Flamel's possession. Ownership of the Codex would allow the Dark Elders to once more rule the earth.

This is the only book series that I like better than the Harry Potter series. I have been obsessed with the Harry Potter series since the second grade. If you like fantasy, you'll love this book!

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Lewis Carroll (2009), 191 pages

When a white rabbit runs by, pulling his watch out of his waistcoat, Alice follows him down a rabbit hole and into a world filled with amazing characters. Magic potions make Alice grow, and then shrink, and grow again. A tea party with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and a sleeping Dormouse leave Alice with more questions than answers. A grouchy queen makes playing croquet 'complete with flamingos for mallets and hedgehogs for balls' a scary proposition. This adventure is filled with amusing characters and whimsical word play. Quite an adventure indeed!
