Soar Book Review
Soar - Tracy Edward Wymer

A quick read and definitely one I'll keep in my back pocket to recommend to middle grade students. Soar deals with a young boy named Eddie who is dealing with his fathers death, his father who was obsessed with birds and claimed he saw a Golden Eagle. Problem is, no one believed him. Now its up to Eddie to find the truth. 


I liked this for many reasons, it deals with loss and death in the family, has a student from another country trying to learn English AND has a boy who has turrets (though it would have been nice if he wasn't the bully) 


A lot of different middle school student's can easily relate to Soar.

Sugar rush
Target of Mine: The Night Stalkers 5E (Titan World Book 2) - M.L. Buchman

This is a book from the new Titan World series. This is where series that are alike come together with those of the Titan series, created by Cristin Harber. If you are already familiar with the Titan series, this is going to be a joy for you. If you are as of yet unfamiliar - I am curious, where have you been?


Nikita had met Drake before, when they worked on a mission.  After turning him down once, he never tried anything again.  She is unsure whether there will be anything in the future for them beyond the flirting they need to do to keep up their cover.


Drake wants Nikita in a way he has never wanted another woman.  She is already a very accomplished operator.  Now, if they can just stay alive and get past their own selves to take a chance....


This was such an incredible rush of a book to read!  Fitting into the Titan World, by not only them and action - there are surprises for the reader with visits from favorite characters.  It was heart pounding fun that I felt from page one.  I loved watching the characters nearly tumble over themselves for one another!  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Courage to Soar: A Body in Motion, A Life in Balance
Courage to Soar: A Body in Motion, A Life in Balance - Simone Biles,Mary Lou Retton,Michelle Burford Simone Biles is one of the best gymnasts out there. However, this book doesn't seem to transmit her love for this sport. Moreover, it seemed, to me at least, that there was too much church in a sport memoir. All in all, I probably expected too much from this book.

Soar - Tracy Edward Wymer

by Tracy Edward Wymer

age range: 8 to 12 years old

Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing


Eddie inherited his dad's passion for birds, and he also learned from him all there is to know about that feathered creatures. His dad was so lucky he once got to see the Golden Eagle, although the location and the time of the year were very unlikely for the eagle to appear. That's why nobody but Eddie ever believed him. Dad never gave up trying to see such magnificent bird again, and that's why now that he has "flew away", it's up to Eddie to see it again. Eddie is planning to win the blue ribbon in the Science Symposium doing a project about the Golden Eagle, and this despite the fact Mouton, the school bully, is his partner in the project, and Mr. Dover, his Science teacher, was Dad's birding rival.


There are many interesting things is the story I would like to mention: the hard time Lisa, Eddie's mom, is having to keep things going as normal as possible after become a widower; the changes happening in Eddie because of his age, how at some moments he is a defiant teenager with a crush on a girl new in town, while in others he is still a boy wearing a ninja costume; Gabriella's efforts for making this new place her home; Mouton's struggles, and the amazing things he is able to do but hides from everyone, showing himself only as a bully; how we get to know Dad through the rest of the character's voices; how even we as readers doubt about the Golden Eagle's existence, but Eddie never doubts. He is a sweet character feeling lonely after his dad passed away, and trying to keep him close waiting for the Golden Eagle to appear again.The text is engaging, funny, and a little emotional at some points. Besides a great story, I can envision this book awaking kids interest in knowing more about birds, that is a great plus. I'm glad I crossed paths with this author.


I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
