    The Switch
    by Beth O'Leary

    Funny, warm family story of a grandmother and granddaughter who switch lives. There's some willing suspension of disbelief necessary, but it's worth it for the upbeat, enjoyable story.

    Cute short clean read. Likeable characters. Stand alone but part of a series.

    The Crowns Of Croswald
    by DE Night

    Ivy Lovely is having a rough day. After having the strangest dreams, which make her late for her job, she finds out that one of her dragons has the flu! Wait a minute...dragon flu? The plot only thickens from there! • • Whisked away to a magical school, Ivy soon learns that she is anything but the ordinary (though strangely gifted) sculdrony maid she always thought she was doomed to remain. In fact, she may be the key to saving all of Croswald. • • The Crowns of Croswald is a delightful addition to the fantasy world. It is a story full of brand new magical beasts, exciting adventures, and a lurking mystery pressing at the edges of every page. I was enchanted from the beginning, and I look forward to reading more from this world.

    Ella and Owen are funny twin dragons who go on crazy adventures. Squeaky steals Owen's favorite book and that leads them on a new adventure. I loved it!

    The movie was amazing, but this book was in turns gripping, infuriating, and surprising. I loved it!

    This book was such an eye opener. To be able to see events through Ann's eyes is an amazing experience.
