I don’t know what happened to us in October, but we didn’t finish many books.  I think we’re in the middle of several books now, so we’ll have more to report next month!  Here are the best (and worst) books for ages 8 to 12 that we read in October

Books We Read

This month we finished three books.

The Best (and Worst) Books For Ages 8 to 12 {October 2020}

Phoebe the Spy by Judith Berry Griffin

Based on a true story, Phoebe the Spy is about a young girl who is sent to be a servant in George Washington’s house by her father.  Her father knows there is a plot against Washington, and Phoebe is to root out who might be planning to harm him.

This book has 38 pages.

Awake and Dreaming by Kit Pearson

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to1 2 {October 2020}

What a strange story Awake and Dreaming was.  Theo’s mother, Rae, was just 16 when she had Theo, and she’s had custody off and on.  Theo is now nine years old and once again living with her abusive mother who often puts her boyfriends above Theo.  Meanwhile, Theo loses herself in books and imagines joining other people’s families.

When Theo and Rae take a boat to her aunt’s house (so Rae can leave Theo with her sister since Rae’s boyfriend doesn’t like kids), Theo meets an amazing family with four children.  Due to a freak accident on the boat, Theo wakes to find she’s actually become part of this family!

This is one of the strangest stories I’ve ever read, but we all enjoyed trying to figure out what was happening to allow Theo to become a member of this other family.

This book is 258 pages long.

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to 12 {October 2020}

Glitch by Laura Martin

Hhhmmm.  I read several good reviews online about Glitch, so, being history buffs, we were excited to read it.  However, this turned out to be my least favorite book we read last month.  (The girls chose this as their favorite book out of the three we read, so, there’s that.)  This story follows Regan and Elliot, two kids who strongly dislike one another.  The two are also Glitchers.  Glitchers travel through time to make sure that Butterflies (a name for a group of people) don’t go back in time to change events such as changing history so that Lincoln isn’t assassinated.

However, Regan and Elliot soon become Butterflies themselves.

This book is 364 pages long.
