6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Sam’s entry. Thanks, Sam!
Icefire By Chris d` lacey
Watts publishing group.
David is a 21 year old collage student. His family is everything but normal. They have little dragons made out of clay that can get into their imagination and help them. David’s dragon is named Gadzooks. He is a writing dragon (he helps David write stories). Then one day David makes a wish to his step sister’s wishing dragon. He wishes to find out about a thing called a fire tear. The fire tear came from the last living dragon on earth, and posseses great power. But then an evil sibyl (AKA witch) tries to steal it. Now David and his allies have to stop her. Will David succeed? Read this book and find out.
David is very smart. He goes to college and has a job. He is also pretty humorous and kind of wacky. He has a “goth” girlfriend (from his collage). He can think and react realy fast. For example in one chapter he doges a bunch of shots made by the evil sibyl and manages to hurt her a little (even though she is way more powerful than him).
The thing I liked most about this book is that it has nonstop “cliff-hangers” and lots of action. Then there were the character descriptions, they were so good I had a movie going on in my mind, and I could see the characters perfectly. This book is one of the best.
I would recommend this book to both genders and action lovers.
