Well, this is the final book. I’ve read all 18 EBoB books and while this isn’t my favorite, it was a pretty good read. I didn’t really like that Lorelei was able to secure the lair and start treasure hunting on her own because I think she will use the tools for selfish gain. I wonder if she’ll meet up with Homer in another book. I wonder how much the Galileo compass is actually worth. I also wonder if Homer is going to be inducted into L.O.S.T. How was the reunion with his family? As you can see, I have a lot of unanswered questions ๐Ÿ˜‚. Maybe I’ll read the next book in the series to see if any of my questions will be answered.

Reading this book reminded me of a book written by Patricia Polacco, Thank You, Mr. Falker. Both books are about a student who has learning differences and thinks they aren’t smart until a teacher comes along and changes everything. And both books are loosely based on the authors’ experiences as a student. I especially like this book because it contains one of my favorite quotes and a student realizes what she thought was impossible is now possible. Two things: Can you tell me one of my favorite quotes from the book and can you named the planets by reading this sentence, ‘My very excellent Mother just served us nachos’?

Crenshaw

This book wasn’t at all what I expected, but I enjoyed reading it. There seems to be a recurring theme in all of the books to have hope and courage when life seems bleakest. Or maybe it’s just me? Every character, setting, and plot is different, but the message is the same: Never give up, life is magical, we are all unique and special. You’ll have to let me know if you’ve noticed the same patterns ๐Ÿ˜Š. Here’s a nugget for the EBOB competition (and the question may never arise): most of you know how much I love Starbucks! The only book that I’ve read so far that has mentioned my favorite watering hole is Crenshaw! So, any question(s) regarding Starbucks, Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate ๐Ÿ˜‚.

The Key to Extraordinary

Some books start out slow, but the pace picks up as the plot thickens. Some books are exciting from beginning to end. This book was slow reading for me at first, but I couldn’t put it down after I was halfway through. I loved the how author brought out the secrets of the treasure and the meaning of Emma’s dream. (I won’t spoil it ๐Ÿ˜Š). I’ll bet if we all kept journals of our ancestors’ lives and our own lives we would have an extraordinary tale to tell.

Love, Ruby Lavender

I made a connection with this book because of the loss that some of the characters experienced. But, I really didn’t think I was vested in the characters until the last few pages of the book. I almost cried and I’m not quite sure why. Was it Ruby’s compassion? Pity for Melba? Or the feeling of sadness because I related to missing someone I love so much? Could’ve been all of those reasons. This book isn’t among my favorites, but every time I see a lightning bug I’ll think of the rhyme Ruby’s grandfather taught her ๐Ÿ˜Š.

I love this book! I especially like the way the author brings a different perspective on the Revolutionary War. To veer off for a second, some of you have posted that the book is loosely based on Civil War events; actually it’s the Revolutionary War. This is an important fact to keep in mind, especially during the EBOB competition. Here’s Why: The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg is loosely based on Civil War events. If a question is asked regarding the Civil War, it’ll be easy to get the two books confused. Just keep that in mind. Now, back to the book ๐Ÿ˜Š. The author is right, we often get caught up in the heroism of war and forget about the ugliness of battle. The Revolutionary War lasted for 8 years and many lives were lost to ensure the freedom we enjoy today as American citizens. It isn’t easy to read about true horror stories of war, but it makes me appreciate the country we live in and the men and women that have fought and still fight for our right to be free.

The takeaway from this book is finding the best in people, especially people that are hard to get along with, and treating them with kindness.
