The Inventor's Secret (Cragbridge Hall #1)

It's the year 2074, and school is very different from what it is today. In gym class, you're going to run up a virtual mountain with your class and a class from halfway around the world. You're also going to study history in a far different way, you'll actually be able to "be" there in a way that no one else has ever experienced. This is what school is like in the most advanced and prestigious school in the world, Cragbridge Hall. Enter Abby and Derick Cragbridge, twins and grandkids of the founder of Cragbridge Hall. They're both excited to begin their educations at this amazing school, but Abby knows that the only reason she got into this school is her grandfather. She actually received a rejection letter before she received an acceptance letter. Most of the kids that are in the school have accomplished amazing things in their short lives, but Abby feels...well, average. This causes lots of the girls to look down on her and feel that their own friends, who had accomplished so much and not gotten in, should have had more of a chance than Abby had to go to Cragbridge Hall. But Abby must learn that it doesn't really matter what others think of her, and be able to ignore them in order to learn and grow herself. When Abby and Derick's parents and grandfather end up missing, it's up to Abby and Derick to find and save them, but will they be able to find them in time?

Wow! I really loved this book. The story is fantastic, filled with imagination, adventure and action. The characters are great too! I loved Abby and hated her roommate who was so mean to her. I really liked the way that it was hard for even the reader to tell just who was trustworthy. The person that seemed to be most trustworthy ends up being one of the bad guys. I can't say enough good things about this one, you'll just have to go read it for yourself to understand it's amazingness!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
