And I thought the first book was good! Dragon Lantern pulls out all the stops and seriously ups the ante in this League of Seven novel. Great action, super suspense, and characters you really care about. Can't wait for book three!

This middle-grade book by Alan Gratz is the most fun novel I've read this year. If you like steampunk, robots, ray guns, dirigibles, monsters, puzzles, and adventure, you need to read this book -- no matter how old you are. Can't wait for books 2 and 3!

"The Monster War" is an awesome ending to a fun trilogy. You can't really go wrong with ninja robots, giant monsters, superpowers, and steampunk blended together in a rollicking adventure. I only wish there were another trilogy set in the same world coming along. Here's hoping it will happen someday.

First sentence: "It's an attack!" Stanley cried. "Enemy airplanes--dozens of them. Coming in low over the water!"

Premise/plot: Frank and Stanley are best friends living on [one of the islands] of Hawaii in December 1941. When the novel opens, these two are bonding over comic book superheroes. In fact, these two want to write and illustrate their own comic book series. So many ideas. So much potential. But that near-perfect day is soured when bullies enter the scene. Stanley stands up to the bullies, and Frank, well, Frank is too scared to stand up for what's right and just. The next day, December 7, will be a big day. Frank must find a way to repair his relationship with Stanley. The two will be going on a tour of a battleship. But Frank's confession of a deep, dark secret takes second place to the drama-trauma of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Can Frank and Stanley be heroes when it counts the most?

My thoughts: I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, crazy-loved this historical novel for children and middle grade. Definitely my best read of the year--granted it is February. I loved Frank. I loved Stanley. I loved all the talk of superheroes and origin stories and comic books. I loved the creativity. I loved the HEART and substance of this one. I thought the book was great at SHOWING and not telling. Of course, that is my perspective. I loved the narrative. The writing was outstanding.

I already want to reread this one.
