Cool Kids Wear Glasses by Teddy O’Malley

Cool Kids Wear Glasses by Teddy O'MalleyThe Mystic Princesses finished reading Cool Kids Wear Glasses by Teddy O’Malley and went to get a snack while they talked about the book.

“I didn’t like Mandy’s character very much,” Janna said.

“She was mean to the other kids at school,” Breanna agreed. “What did you think, Coral?”

“You shouldn’t let a few people decide whether you are cool or not.”

Catie chimed in saying, “Even if some people are bullies, not everyone is. You just need to try to find friends that like you for who you are, instead of what you look like.”

“Yes,” Harmonie agreed. “Look at us. We all look different. But we are friends. I would rather find friends who are kind, honest and caring.”

“And if you see someone being bullied, you should try to make friends with them,” Harmonie said. “When a person has friends, he or she is less likely to be bullied.”

Destiny and Faith Go To Twincentric Academy! by Teddy O’Malley

“PJ, we loved Destiny and Faith’s Summer Adventures,” Catie said. “But we read the books out of order. The first book is Destiny and Faith Go To Twincentric Academy! Please, please, please buy us that one, too!”

“You girls know that I love when you read. I’ll download it right now if you write a review as soon as you read it.”

“Okay. We promise,” Catie said as the girls hurried to get their ereader.

Destiny and Faith Twincentric Academy 5-18-14 8 PM EST“A school for twins is cool,” Janna said starting the conversation after the princesses read the book. “What did you think, Catie?”

“Destiny and Faith are bi-racial, and they still get to fit into the school because they are twins.”

“Yes, everyone wants to have friends,” Coral said. “I liked that they switched twins. How about you, Breanna?”

“I might have thrown a fireball near Jourdonna’s and Jourdana’s feet. They were so hateful!”

“You know you can’t do that!” Harmonie said. “Besides, you are missing the main point of the story. People need to learn to get along with other, even if they are different.

“I know. They just made me so mad,” Breanna said.

“Harmonie’s right,” Janna said to wrap up the discussion. “I want to read more books by Teddy O’Malley. Let’s find PJ and ask her to buy them for us.”

Destiny and Faith’s Summer Adventures by Teddy O’Malley

Destiny and Faith Summer AdventuresThe Mystic Princesses are talking about the latest chapter book they read, Destiny and Faith’s Summer Adventures by Teddy O’Malley. As usual, they all have plenty to say.

“I’ve always wanted a twin sister,” Harmonie said. “That way I’d always have a friend.”

“Oh, you’ve got us,” Coral replied. “We’ll never leave you.”

“I liked the ghost hunting part,” Catie said returning to the book discussion. “It was funny when the ghost scared them.”

“I thought the funniest part was when they were cleaning the attic,” Janna said. “Cobwebs and spiders don’t scare me.”

“I liked that they found a job teaching their friends American Sign Language,” Breanna said. “Being able to include Dustin who is deaf, in their conversations must have made him feel welcome, even though he just moved into the neighborhood.”

The princesses decided they liked this book so much, they asked PJ to download all of Teddy O’Malley’s other eBooks. They want to read them, as well.
