Frank Einstein and Antimatter Motor

Title: Frank Einstein and Antimatter Motor
Author: Jon Scieszka
Genre: Science Fiction

Summary: In this great Science Fiction story by Jon Scieszka, Frank Einstein is a kid-genius and creative inventor. Most of his creations come from everyday things used in new and exciting ways. His side-kick Watson helps in ways Frank doesn't always recognize. When he is ready to submit his most exciting project yet to the Science Fair, Frank's dreams of winning are dashed when his arch-nemesis T. Edison steals his robots and friends. Will Frank find a way to get them back, or will he let T. Edison get the best of him? I loved this book because it made science fun! It is like Diary of a Wimpy kid but with smarter humor and more rich text. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves humor and wants to love science just as much!

The Cursed Child

Title: The Cursed Child
Author: J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany
Genre: Fantasy

Summary: The Cursed Child picks up in the magical world of Harry Potter nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts. Harry and Ginny's children are now at Hogwarts themselves, getting sorted and trying to find their own way, despite their famous parents. An unlikely friendship forms between Harry's son Albus and Draco Malfoy's son Scorpious, which both sets of parents are skeptical about. When a time-turner is found everyone must face the consequences of how changing the past can change everything about the future. This is a good book for people who have been craving more Harry Potter stories. It isn't as good as the original series but I loved reconnecting with some of my favorite characters, along with some new ones!
