One of the best things about Summer Reading ending is that we get to read through all of our reader reviews! We’ve compiled a list of the good, the bad, and the ugly. The opinions expressed by our readers are their own. Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 😆
“The Simple Art of Flying” by Cory Leonardo
5/5 Stars ★★★★★
Why did you like this book? It is my favorite book in the world so far. I re-read it every summer. It is so sweet with two birds’ sibling relationship. The fact that they are BOTH always looking out for one another.

“The Elite” by Kiera Cass
2/5 Stars ★★
Why did you like or dislike this book? America (that is the protagonist’s name) is very indecisive. She can’t decide who she wants to marry, and the book ends almost where it started. It seems unnecessary, not much was actually accomplished, and the love part of it has been very close to the Hunger Games so far. And it gets annoying. America also made some REALLY bad decisions. I hope the finale to this series is worth it though.
