Fun story! Reminds me of the Goonies with a modern and educational spin. My favorite section is page 102, the poem that Phil dictates to Nestor on their way home from New Orleans..."Pound those skins. Legato. Staccato. Sway. Swing, Sashay. Let the good times roll." Where's my ticket to New Orleans!

Nestor and Phil team up again in this exciting adventure about two young boys visiting New Orleans, the city of Jazz and in this case Voodoo! As they get into mischief as most youngsters do at their age (sixth graders), they also learn about this great city, which the author seems to be very familiar with as she weaves the history of New Orleans with the adventures of Nestor and Phil. Especially fun to read is chapter nine which details lMarie Laveau the queen of Voodoo and her famous burial plot. An interesting and exciting visit within the pages of this book.

The Science Project centers on Nestor, the main character and his buddy Phil who are also part of the class written about in Ms. Donadio's Ocean's Way and Who DoVoodoo.
Nestor befriends a cockroach who he names Hector and will also be his science project. As Nestor and his classmates compete in the science project contest, some interesting and fun things happen along the way. The book is both fun to read and educational.

The Ocean's Way is a tender coming of age story about two young girls who have won a trip to Florida with their teacher. One of the girls comes from a stable home while the other is not as lucky. The story line continues with warm conversations, secrets shared by best friends, and a wonderful discussion of sea life, such as the dolphin and the whale. A very enjoyable read.
