Book Review: Surfside Girls: The Secret of Danger Point

Surfside GirlsToday I recommend: Surfside Girls: The Secret Of Danger Point by Kim Dwinell.

Surfside Girls: The Secret Of Danger Point is a fictional graphic novel about two girls who are friends, Jade and Samantha, who live in a tropical area near a beach in the summer. They both love swimming in the ocean, snorkeling and surfing. Samantha jumps out of their Kayak, and discovers an underwater cave that leads to a beautiful stretch of land, where Samantha starts seeing things, like ghosts.
I enjoyed this graphic novel because it was short and interesting. I have never read a book like it. My favorite part is that Samantha is told that the dolphins call her sea kitten. I recommend this book to anyone who feels like reading a non scary ghost story, or a quick and funny graphic novel.

Throwback Thursday: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

20,000 leaguesFor this Throwback Thursday I recommend: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne.

Professor Aronnax and his two companions, trapped aboard a fantastic submarine as prisoners of the deranged Captain Nemo, come face to face with exotic ocean creatures and strange sights hidden from the world above.

This classic book by Jules Verne was published in 1869, and like many of our Throwback Thursday classics it has been adapted into a movie. This book can get a little wordy but for anyone who enjoys serious science-fiction this classic is not to be missed!

You can find it in the Juvenile Fiction section at J VERNE.
