There are bountiful amounts of knowledge we may learn from the books we read. From genre to genre, book to book, it helps our minds run free with imagination by immersing us in different situations and connecting with what the characters on paper both feel and face in their world.

Join the Middle Schoolers in reading their picks of the month by looking at the students’ book reviews!


ISKL April Book Review No. 1 by Ming K., Grade 6 student

A Mango Shaped Space Book Cover

Title: A Mango-Shaped Space
Author: Wendy Mass
Genre: Realistic Fiction

“I like how the author describes and shares the struggles that she faces during school and outside. I also think this book will inspire a lot of people to see things differently instead of thinking everyone is the same.”


ISKL April Book Review No. 2 by Gregorio S., Grade 8 student

An Ember in the Ashes Book Cover

Title: An Ember in the Ashes
Author: Sabaa Tahir
Genre: Fantasy

“An Ember in the Ashes takes many good literary techniques and ideas and spins them into a fabulous tale. Sabaa Tahir created a book that I will remember for the rest of my life.”


ISKL April Book Review No. 3 by Lachlan R., Grade 8 student 

Title: Monsters of Men (Book Three in the Chaos Walking series)
Author: Patrick Ness
Genre: Dystopian

“I would highly recommend this book to other people as there is action and adventure, also drama and sci-fi.”


ISKL April Book Review No. 4 by Annika C., Grade 8 student

House of Hollow Book Cover

Title: House of Hollow
Author: Krystal Sutherland
Genre: Horror

“I enjoyed this book because it always had me guessing what was going to happen next, and there were times when I was creeped out, which doesn’t really happen to me with books.”

A big thank you to Ming K., Gregorio S., Lachlan R., and Annika C. for sharing their passion for reading with the community. Missed the March book review? We invite you to read them here.
