Jax Aubrey can't stand living with his guardian, Riley. What does Riley know about being in charge of someone? He's barely 18 years old himself. When Jax’s father died he wanted to live with his aunt, but because his dad had made arrangements with Riley, that couldn’t happen. Everything is different now. Thank goodness for his best friend, Billy. Without him, Jax couldn’t get through the day. Little does Jax know that his 13th birthday is going to be the start of something new. When he wakes up he can’t figure out where all the people are and why the electricity doesn’t work. He begins to worry that this is the apocalypse. When Riley does explain it all, Jax learns that there's an eighth day of the week sandwiched in between Wednesday and Thursday. Only certain people can experience the eighth day, and there are all kinds of rules about it. There are also some people who only experience Grundsday (the nickname for the eighth day). There’s a prisoner next door who Riley is supposed to be watching, but there are some bad people who are trying to find her so that they can control things. Will Jack be able to keep the bad guys away? Why is the prisoner wanted by so many people? You will be turning the pages to find out what happens next!

I have wanted to read The Eighth Day by Dianne K. Salerni since I first heard about it. Maybe it's because I've thought a lot about having an extra day in the week. That would be excellent! I could get so much done on that day and even catch up on sleep! But that doesn't seem like what most people use the eighth day for in this book. I liked Jax and thought he was easy to relate to, even if I worried about some of the choices he was making. It was fun learning about a different world and type of people. And I like the references to Merlin and King Arthur. Of course, now I really need to do more research into those stories. This is a great book for kids in fifth grade and up. There is a little violence towards the end of the book, but nothing too overly descriptive. I have already started book two and hope to get the third book soon!

In this fantasy adventure, thirteen-year-old orphan Jax Aubrey discovers a secret eighth day. The eighth day is an extra twenty-four hours between Wednesday and Thursday. Jax along with other gifted people live on the eighth day, an extra day of the week. Jax meets a mysterious girl named Evangeline imprisoned next door locked in the eighth day. The girl is the key to rival Transitioners' plans to use the extra day to destroy the normal world. He and his guardian, Riley Pendare, must save Evangeline from the people that are hunting her to eliminate the seven-day world. Perfect for middle school and teen readers who like mythology, legends and series. The next book in the series is, "The Inquisitor's Mark" by Dianne Salerni.

When I first picked up this book I thought that I would be sort of like a time traveling book. Little did I know that I was completely wrong and it was so much better than that!
This book beautify combines loyalty, magic, and friendship to create the ultimate can't-put-this-down read. ( )

I read The Eighth Day and thought the concept of a select few people who can experience an additional day between Wednesday and Thursday. They call it Grunsday. It's pretty cool, but it also affords opportunity for crime. I loved the book until about halfway through when the plot turns to magic. I felt very bogged down and wanted the story to end. This is probably because I don't like the fantasy genre very much. ( )

Great upper elementary or middle grades read for those who liked Rick Riordan's mythology books. My one grouse about it is that the author makes assumptions that the reader has knowledge of the Knights of the Round Table/Arthurian legends, which may not be the case. An enjoyable read either way.

Jax pedaled home from the store and muttered in cadence with the rhythm of his bike wheels: This sucks. This sucks. This sucks.
