Five years ago, Sky Mundys father vanished from North Compound without a trace.

To find her dadand possibly even save the worldSky and her best friend, Shawn, must break out of their underground home and venture topside to a land reclaimed by nature and ruled by dinosaurs. Perfect for fans of Brandon Mull, Lisa McMann, and Rick Riordan, this exhilarating debut novel follows two courageous friends who must survive in a lost world thats as dangerous as theyve always feared but also unlike anything they could ever have imagined.

My brother is SO not a reader, but recommended this book to me for the #middlegrade recommended by a kid prompt for #BBRC. A fun, kid version of Jurassic Park that was enjoyable and also had me freaking out (WHO DOESN‘T SUPERVISE 12 YEAR OLDS?). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book 17/30 for #BFCR2

LibrarianRyan Yeah. I‘ve looked at this a few times but haven‘t picked it up glad you enjoyed it. 1mo

I forgot this weekend is the #24in48 readathon! I just signed up and this is my “stack” for the weekend. I‘m starting at 53% in the tagged book and The Book Thief is next in line. Both are for my library‘s adult summer reading program. With a 3-year old and my husband out for the day tomorrow, I won‘t need a big stack! The only other book that may sneak in is the 2nd Edge of Extinction book I ordered that might arrive before the ‘thon ends!

smilingshelves The Edge of Extinction books are so good! 13mo
BucklingBookshelves @smilingshelves I just finished the first one and it was really good! It was an ebook, but I‘ll have to get a hard copy because I think it will be fantastic to share with my kiddo when he‘s older 😊 13mo
smilingshelves I read a library copy, then had to buy a copy for myself and my school library. Book Outlet had it then, so you might want to check there... ☺️ 13mo
BucklingBookshelves @smilingshelves I did see that they still have it! It‘s in my cart, (you know, for later) but I‘ll hold off awhile yet as I‘m already expecting a Book Outlet order soon 😬🙊📚 13mo

I‘m not a big ebook reader, but I wanted to check off that category for my library‘s summer reading program. And Amazon Prime recently ran a $0.99/3-months deal on Kindle Unlimited which was so cheap I figured, why not? In truth, I signed up because you can get Whispersync deals on Audible editions of Kindle Unlimited ebooks... but it came in handy today when I spotted this RAR recommended page-turner which is EXACTLY what I need in an ebook!

This is the #best book about dinosaurs I have ever read. What if you cloned dinosaurs, but then they became the dominant species and you were forced to live underground? #30daysofreadathon

My first Book Outlet order is here! Evidence of my obsession with middle grade novels and two books for my husband. (How else was I going to convince him to let me spend money on books? Bribery works.) ☺ #bookmail
