Book reviews of YA lit and more

As a middle school librarian and hopeful reader of Missouri's high school award books (Gateway nominees), I am reading and reviewing as many young adult and middle grade novels as I can while working on my own writing for this age group.

Adventurers Wanted: Slathbog's Gold- M.L. Forman

I think I could sum up this book in two words: The Hobbit.  I felt like I was rereading Tolkien the whole way through.  Yes, there are some differences in plot; however, I feel like for the differences The Hobbit was much better.  For fantasy lovers that need another book with elves, dwarfs, wraiths, and a quest this would work, but it doesn't really offer anything special or different.
