Each week throughout the summer, the Juneau Public Libraries, in collaboration with the Friends of the Juneau Public Libraries and local businesses, award young readers various prizes for writing book reviews about their favorite summer reads. Summer Reading has now drawn to a close!
Thank you to all the readers who took time to share your thoughts. Over the summer we received 257 reviews, submitted by 93 different kids at the three libraries. Here are the top book reviews from this week’s winners.
