Professor Owl’s Book Corner, January 20th, 2021

When the world says “Give up.”

Hope says “Try one more time!”

Welcome back to the new Professor Owl’s Book Corner, after listening to our subscribers who found our newsletter a little too long, we have decided as of this month, instead of our usual newsletter we will be posting a new shorter version, but it will be posted every week on a Wednesday.  We will be keeping some of your favourite content such as our “Book of The Month”,  “The Writers Corner,” “Literacy” and “Community Boards” along with a couple of new sections. They will, however,  be a little shorter in length than before  but hopefully still of interest and of help for you.

We realize that with Covid19 some of you are now using online classes.  So, we have gathered some information on programs to help and online help when you need it. 

We will also list a few places to go for information like homework help and videos to show how to fix most problems.  We hope you enjoy and like our new edition.

Homework help!

After an extensive check I found that most Libraries in several countries offer homework help for all age groups and subjects. 

I have also found another place where I go to online whenever I need to learn anything new or fix something,  that is ”YouTube” they have lots of videos on many different subjects. Check out our future newsletters for more ideas and sites to help you learn.

Legendborne

byTracy Deonn  (Author) 

Filled with mystery and an intriguingly rich magic system, Tracy Deonn’s YA contemporary fantasyLegendbornoffers the dark allure ofCity of Boneswith a modern-day twist on a classic legend and a lot of Southern Black Girl Magic. 
 
After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC–Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape—until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus. 
 
A flying demon feeding on human energies. 
 
A secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures down. 
 
And a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts—and fails—to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she saw. 
 
The mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own unique magic and a buried memory with a hidden connection: the night her mother died; another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that Bree knows there is more to her mother’s death than what is on the police report, she will do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates. 
 
She recruits Nick, a self-exiled Legendborn with his own grudge against the group, and their reluctant partnership pulls them deeper into the society’s secrets—and closer to each other. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree must decide how far she will go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down—or join the fight. 

This was a fast-paced fantasy story, with great character’s and exciting plot and very beautifully written. 

I found it to be a great read and once started could not put it down until the very last page. I would like to thank NetGalley for the opportunity to read this great book for honest review.
