Remarkable: a Novel, by Lizzie Foley

Summary:  Ten-year-old Jane Doe, the only student average enough to be excluded from the town of Remarkable’s School for the Remarkably Gifted, is joined at her public school by the trouble-making Grimlet twins, who lead her on a series of adventures involving an out-of-control science fair project, a pirate captain on the run from a mutinous crew, a lonely dentist, and a newly constructed bell tower that endangers Remarkable’s most beloved inhabitant–a skittish lake monster named Lucky.

  1. A ‘good’ book, but it wasn’t anything special. I wouldn’t vote it for newbery.

  2. I agree with Bonnie. I wasn’t ‘remarkable’, or bad. I don’t think it can stand up against some other books to win the newbery award. A fun read.

  3. I agree with both of you. It was a pretty good book but not the BEST. Like “the hero’s guide to saving your kingdom”, it was a ‘fun read’ but not a winner.

  4. It was very interesting an fun to read, but I don’t think it should win the newbery.

  5. I agree with ALL of you. Remarkable? No. Fun read? Yes. Plot was nice, but exceptional? No.
