G-Man Super Journal: Awesome Origins

This book is about a guy named G-Man who wants to be a superhero. I like this book because G-Man is very funny and kids in his class are getting super powers. G-Man wants some super powers too. So he starts asking the kids that got super powers to let him try out their stuff. When that didn't work, he asks them where did they get it from but all of them say they got it from a top secret website in Japan.

My Sister The Vampire: Switched

This book is about when two girls find out that they are identical twin sisters. They encounter some problems at a Halloween ball and they have to switch! But one of them has a secret... a dark secret. I like this book because every sentence makes sense and it's a very exciting book. Once you read it you can't put it down! I don't like this book because some of the chapters are too long!
