    This mini review has also been posted on The Social PotatoI had no idea how I would feel about The Eighth Day when I started it but a couple pages in and I knew this book and I were meant to beA secret eighth day that only certain people experience? MERLIN? COUNT ME IN This was the kind of book the pre teen me would have loved and she was doing cartwheels in my mind as I read thisPersonally I don’t think middle grade gets the credit it deserves and I’ll admit to be one of those people that definitely need to pay attention to it because otherwise I wouldn’t encounter gems like this bookJax’s father recently died and he now lives with a guardian his father chose 3 weeks prior to his death who is barely out of high school To say Jax is not happy would be an understatement  Jax cannot uite understand why his father would choose Riley to be his guardian when his mother’s cousin was family and would have been HAPPY to have himBut things slowly start making sense as the mystery unravels and we get to know about who Jax’s father was and who Jax is a transitionerJax is a marvelous character but my favorite is hands down Riley and while I wish I could elaborate I won’t because I will go into fan girl mode and will start blurting out incoherent nonsense But you should know Riley is awesomeEvangeline on the other hand is a character I cannot make my mind up about She is a descendant of Merlin and only exists on Grunsday aka The Eighth Day I guess we haven’t gotten to know her well enough for me to pass a judgment on her I don’t particularly feel anything towards her at the moment but I do so love her relationship with JaxI had no idea this book would deal with Merlin until I started this and then went back to check the blurb and my expectations immediately sored and I am so glad to say I wasn’t let down I LOVED the climax I loved the mystery and I LOVED this bookThis book was exciting and always kept me on my toes and when it was over I was seriously surprised as to how it could be over so soonIf you love middle grade READ THIS If you don’t you won’t know what you’re missing out on a thoroughly engrossing and incredibly original tale with a marvelous set of characters you cannot help but love

    Mad props to the production team on this book the title cover and premise really drew me in I just HAD to read this book I had some seriously high expectations and boy did it deliver The Eighth Day is my favorite book of the year so farI was really curious what Dianne Salerni would do with an entire extra day of the week And who are these people that only exist on the eighth day? What is life like for them? How did they end up trapped there?The Eighth Day is not only a fun fantasy set around a really cool premise but it is a complex adventure with plenty of action and suspense There are people robbing banks and engaging in human sacrifice and delving into magical legendsAs a fifth grade teacher I was especially glad that this super cool very intense adventure stayed away from YA topics I will definitely be purchasing a copy or two for my classroom and heartily recommending it to my students

Wait let me rephrase that What else can I say about TED that doesn't come off as all sueally and gushy? Umnothing Because this book deserves every bit of sueally gushiness I can muster If there's one MG book that you pick up in 2014 this should be it And for those of you that might not venture far from the YA lanes TED is actually a bit of a cross over in my opinion One of the other mc characters beside Jax is Riley his 18 yr old guardian Eat up Jax You look undernourished Mrs Crandall glared at RileyHe eats everything in sight Riley protested his own mouth full I can't keep groceries in the houseJax looked up startled He thought the exact same thing about Riley Nobody can eat like a teenage boy Mrs Crandall slung a ladle full of mashed potatoes on Jax's plate The pair of you together are probably like piranhaUh huh When my older brother and his friends were hanging out at the house food was gone in minutes Now after Jax and Riley there's Evangeline And I love that Jax is simply her friend and that's all he wants to be And does he ever turn out to be a loyal true blue friend Towards the end of the book he becomes her whoops That'd be too spoilery Just to show you some of his devotion here's one of my fav things he says to herwith Evangline speaking first to give you the contextThat spell's too hard to hold for than a couple minutes she said It would have to be something else Do you think you can remember a brief incantation in Welsh?I'll be freakin' Harry Potter if you need me to beOh Jax I love you Seriously guys if you want a book that will keep you flipping voraciously to the next page and has a premise that you've never read about before an extra day of the week that can only be accessed by descendants of Arthurian legend you'll want to read TED 'Cuz c'mon who hasn't dreamed of extra time to get things done? holds up hand and waves it madly
