Hello and welcome to What I’m Reading Wednesday’s! The two featured books I am indeed reading right now.
The first book is called “Remarkable” by Lizzie K. Foley.
This book is set in the mountain town of Remarkable. Remarkable is home to extraordinarily gifted, extraordinarily talented, or just plain extraordinary. The one exception to that is a 10 year old girl named Jane Doe who is the most average and untalented person who ever lived in Remarkable. The only exception to that is her Grandpa John who is forgotten by everyone. Jane is the only student not attending Remarkable’s School for the Remarkably Gifted. Everything changes when the troublesome and downright criminal Grimlet twins enroll as the 2nd and 3rd students at the ordinarily average public schopl Jane attends. On top of that a strange pirate captain arrives in town to live in the mansion at the top of the hill which is said to be extremely haunted. Join Jane and many more characters on a series of adventures that pits some of Remarkable’s most infamous inhabitants and their secrets in danger.

She is staying with the Mackenzie’s who own a veterinarian office while her mom is auditioning and starring on TV shows. Zoe loves Yum Yum because he is small enough to fit in a purse and is obedient unlike her puppy Sneakers.
