Congratulations to these enthusiastic young critics who shared their reading recommendations with us in August. Each wins a $25 gift certificate from Crow Bookshop in Burlington. We loved reading about all the entrants' favorite books of the summer and have included some excerpts below.

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

"I enjoyed the plot of this book, in which a very unique ninth-grade girl starts going to a public school after being homeschooled. I liked how Stargirl was herself. Even if things got rough, she wasn't about to change her attitude."

Anna Schwarz, 11 of Cambridge

Lucy the Littlest Puppy by Holly Webb

"I love dogs. It made me happy to read about Lucy because my mom and dad won't let me have a dog."

Lily Benoit, 7 of Monkton

The Secret Zoo by Bryan Chick

"I love this book because of the fact that I have a craze for animals. In the story, three kids venture into the local zoo looking for one of their sisters. Once the kids find a secret part of the zoo, the adventure begins!"

Cecilia Luce, 8 of Burlington

Spirit Animals: Wild Born by Brandon Mull

"What I like about this book is the kids are willing to fight for Erdas (their world). Their enemy is this guy named Zerif. He is really evil!"

— Hunter Norton, 8 of Ferrisburgh
