"The book 'Jessica's Mermaid, Sweet Valley Kids' by Molly Mia Stewart is about Jessica, who saw a mermaid. Her friends did not believe her because Jessica always made up stories that were not true. She had to find the mermaid again, or her friends would leave her forever. I really love this story."

"The book 'Secret of the Ghost Piano' by Elizabeth Bolton is a cool book. A boy named Jim was going to his friend Tom's for a sleepover. Tom told him 'ghosts play the piano at night.' It was a mystery they solved in the end. I think everyone should read this book."
