"Diary of a Wimpy Kid" by Jeff Kinney
“Diary of a Wimpy Kid” by Jeff Kinney

"Goosebumps: Let's Get Invisible!" by R.L. Stine
“Goosebumps: Let’s Get Invisible!” by R.L. Stine

"Goosebumps: Night of the Living Dummy" by R.L. Stine

"Unwind Trilogy: UnStrung" by Neal Shusterman and Michelle Knowlden
“Unwind Trilogy: UnStrung” by Neal Shusterman and Michelle Knowlden

"Acorna's People" by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough

"Goosebumps: Welcome to Dead House" by R.L. Stine
