In the story Divergent, by Veronica Roth, Tris is born into a corrupt and deceptive society. The story is placed in future day Chicago, after the rest of the world has collapsed and those enclosed by the city's walls are the only ones protected, or so we thought. The society is broken up into five different factions, or groups, that each specialize in different aspects of the "perfect" society. After undergoing a test, each person is told a specific faction that the test indicated would suit their abilities and attributes the best. Although most take the suggestion, some decide to choose a different faction. Once you choose a faction, there is no turning back and even though Tris is born into the Abnegation faction, the one dedicated to public services and selflessness, she decides to become Dauntless, the armed forces of the city. However, she learns she is one of a "special kind", known as the Divergent. This means that their mind can work in lots of ways and the government can't control her with their serums and formulas. When the corruption of the government starts to expose itself, Tris must fight for her life and for those of the ones she loves the most.
I would give this book a solid four star rating. The background of the story and characters are extremely well developed before any further description is given. This ensures that the context and critical details are comprehended before anymore important events take place. The suspensful and action filled parts of the plot kept me wanting to read. Also, there were many plot twists. Right when I thought I figured something out or had solved a mystery, the events took a turn, adding to the complications and suspense. On the other hand, there were a good amount of dull and slow points. In these spots, I found myself wanting to put the book down and move onto something else. If I were to change anything, I would replace the dull moments with something more exciting and enjoyable for the reader. If I wouldn't have the felt the urge to read something else at these parts, I would have definitely given the book five stars.
In the book She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick a girl named Laureth (she's literally named after an ingredient in a shampoo bottle) and her younger brother Benjamin search for there dad in America. When Laureth thinks her dad goes missing because he hasn't called her in a few days but her mother doesn't care she decides to take matters into her own hands by dragging her brother to NYC to meet some guy that emailed her about her fathers notebook. On top of that Laureths blind which makes it even harder to go to NYC with her little brother. She leaves when her mom Is away with her aunt and somehow they manage to get through the London and U.S. airport security. Soon Laureth and Benjamin find there way around NYC but obviously they have no idea what they are doing or how they're going to find there dad. The only clues they have is there fathers notebook and hotel room. Well you'll have to read it to figure out what happens next.
I liked the craziness of the book and how impractical it was I often asked myself "how did they manage to get through that". I also liked that Laureth was so concerned about her father that she decided it was a good idea to fly to a different country to find him. I didn't like how predictable it was, I felt like I knew what was going to happen most of the time. I also don't like the repetitiveness surrounded around the number 354 and coincidences, it was getting annoying how much it was mentioned in the book. To make this book better I would take out some of the repetitive things and add more harder obstacles that Laureth and Benjamin could have gone through.
The odyssey is an epic poem by homer. In the odyssey the main character Odysseus fights across the land and sea to find his way home. I liked how Odysseus used his mind rather his strength to defeat his opponents. However I did not like how Odysseus just sits back and let's his men die a lot of the time. If I could I would change his cowardice to bravery.
In the story the odyssey by homer Odysseus the king of Ithica and he gets picked to go to the Trojan war and they win and he makes a smart remark to posiden the God of water and posiden gets mad and curses him to be at sea forever so he gets stuck on the sea for twenty years and he goes through so much to get home and find out that there is a bit pleasant surprise at his home
I give this story a 3 out of a 5 because Is a old poem and it is worded weird it had a lot of old words in it and I'm not he biggest fan of old words.i did like the danger and violence in it, all the monsters, gods and goddesses.it was just a big war between earth and the " other places".
The Fault in our stars by John Green was a story about a girl named Hazel that was suffering from cancer. Her mom makes her go to a support groups where they can talk about how there feeling and how they are doing. During these meetings Hazel meets a guy named Augusts. Augusts and Hazel become best friends and help each other through their cancer. Hazel wants to meet the writer of her all time favorite book and Augusta makes that possible. During the end of the book tragedy hits and Hazel looses one of her best friends.
I would give this book a 5 star rating. This book kept you on the end of your chair and made you never want to put it down. Another thing I liked about this book was their was never a dull moment through out the whole thing. The book liked to mess with your emotions form begging sad to happy, laughing, or even crying. This book was heartwarming and went through the steps that Hazel has to go through to try and beat cancer and continue on with her life. This book has nothing for me to dislike it was the best book I have ever read.
Hit and run by Norah McClintock tells a story about a boy named mike who's mother dies when he is eleven years old and ends up having his uncle billy staying with him. But at school it's turns out that Mikes social studies teacher Riel, used to be a cop and Mike wants more info on what happens to his mother. But once they re-open the investigation they end up loosing the people with the most information on what happened to his mom. Mikes gets into a situation and ends up having to go to court for theft out of a alert truck which he was kinda forced to do but billy and mike get into an argument that leads billy to death that was a homicide.
What I liked about this book was the crime,action, and the mystery. Because it gets so intense with books like these, it makes you just want to read more stories by the same author or books similar to this one. It was a great book. I'd rate it's four out of five because it never really tells about mike having to go to court and I really wanted to read about that part.
What I didn't like was that billy knew all about what happened to his sister (mikes mom) but the one night they got into an argument and billy told mike about the car that had hit his mom and that night mike didn't know weather to tell riel or not because it would lead billy to jail or prison. The next morning Mike didn't see billy and he went to an old park till two cops had picked him up and told him that. Billy was hung in the house.
What I would change would be that he would've knew his father and some of his family members so he could go live with them and so he wouldn't have to live with his social studies teacher of go into foster care but this all happening did lead to how it all happened.
In the book Evil Genius by Catherine Jinks, there is a boy, Cadel, who is born a genius and is a troublemaker with hacking government websites at age 4. His "parents" send him to a psychologist who runs an advanced university for geniuses, Axis, and also know Cadel's true father, to whom funding and created the school himself. After Cadel graduates high-school at age 13, his rich "parents" send him off to Axis university. Axis University is also an evil university inside to train him to be manipulative and later on become an evil genius.
I liked how detail they were with how Cadel and his mind were so advanced that others saw him as weird and he was a loner, and the kind of struggle that a genius faces and how those struggles are over our heads. The realistic situations that this book describes is great. I didn't like how the parents and other adults were so unrealistically fooled into believing that Axis wasn't a evil school, even though it was as simple as looking at the pamphlet. I would change that Cadel's dad allowed him to go on his path to college for him. I think they should've had the boy genius start from the ground and show how he progresses and earns his way to stardom on his own.
In the story, "Recovery Road," by Blake Nelson, the main character is named Maddie Graham. She's a teenage girl attending Highschool, but there's a small twist; she is beginning her junior year in rehab. Throughout the story she finds love and the struggle to stay sober. Suddenly everything is a struggle including meeting up with old habits and old 'friends.' As Maddie works to pull her life together and to stitch up her past, she is reunited by coincidences with her old boyfriend, one who fell into the 90% category of people who fall out of sobriety once they leave rehab.
I would give this book a five star rating. The plot of the story is developed wonderfully and the characters are relatable and realistic. The whole idea of the story kept me intrigued and interested throughout the entire text, it was so well written. It was easy to follow the stages of recovery throughout the book and honestly, it was slightly heart wrenching at certain points. One thing I did not like about this book was how easy it was for Maddie to be accepted once again, by her fellow peers. Being accepted once something horrible happens to you is not as easy as it sounds in the text. I would definitely change that-how her old friends treated her like nothing changed. As nice as it sounds, that isn't how it works. Overall, I loved this book and I finished it pretty quickly I would recommend this book to someone looking for a quick read. (:
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks tells an amazing tale of love and lose. A 17 year old girl named Ronnie and her little brother are sent down to Florida to spend the summer with there father. Ronnie and her father had spoken in 3 years since he left, and she very much dreaded being there and tried to stay out of the house as much as possible avoiding her father and being insanely rude to him was she was around him. But after being accused of a large crime and her father believing her they began to grow closer and became closer than they ever were. She also meets Will whom she quickly falls in love with over her crazy magical summer. But she is faced with horrible news of her father health and Will must leave for collage leaving her scared and confused of what the future holds. So she stays with her father for whatever may happen waiting for what the future will bring them.
I would rate The Last Song a solid 4 star rating, it's captivating and relatable and so easy to hooked to and not want to stop reading. I loved how easy it was to relate to the characters and know what they were feeling and experiencing. Also, I loved the way the author was so descriptive in each event that occurred leaving a astonishing mental image for the reader. I didn't like how there was always another problem or plot going on in the story because it made it very hard to follow at certain times and confusing making it unappealing to read but other than that the book was fantastic and was defiantly a great read.
I read the Help by Kathryn Stockett. This book is an amazing story about being an African American maid in a white household in the 1960's. The setting is in Jaxson Mississippi. From different point of views the women tell Abileen about many stories for her book she is writing. The maids have to do this in secret because they don't want their white ladies to find out they are participating in the book. However their is one white lady who is in on the project. Skeeter. Skeeter is helping interview, and is typing the book! On their race against time to finish the book that could possibly be published, the maids experience some amazing things that make up a great book!
My favorite part of The Help was the different point of views the story was told from. You really got to understand how everyone felt with the vivid details and the insane video it brought to your mind. Every time I read, I felt like I was watching a movie. What I didn't like about the movie was the African American "lingo" that was used when they were telling their stories. You had to really put yourself in their shoes and become the character to truly understand what was being said and that was hard for me. After I was in a few chapters I got used to it, and although I really believe that this added to the feel of the book and what made me like it so much, it was very different. What I would change about the book was the ending. I would've maybe went in a little bit more and finished or wrapped up the story. I think the ending the author put in was a great way to end the book, I just wish there was a little bit of missing information that left you wanting to read the second book, when there isn't a second book. I would rate this book a four out of five. The four being the end.
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore was a great read, it is filled with action suspense and humor. It is a book about a kid that is from a different world and he came to rip earth with his guardian Henri. He finds out that there are 4 of his kind left on earth and 3 are all ready dead, and he is next on the list. The beasts that are chasing them down are called the Magadorians. The main character has a lot of different names and he travels around a lot to stay hidden.
The book is very intense and suspenseful it does a really good job of keeping you hooked the whole time. I would rate the book a 9/10 for the way it makes you not want to put it down and how it is easy to follow along but not to easy. However I did not like that it is long and takes a while to read and that's the only thing I would change. I liked that it was suspenseful and kept me hooked the whole time.
The Odyssey by Homer: Review
In the long poem of the Odyssey, Homer portrays the characters very vividly and he also does a great job of creating a very diverse plot and there are many different settings. The main character, Odysseus of Ithaca, is forced to go fight in the war in Troy. He is taken away from his beloved wife, Penelope and his young son, Telemachus. After the war is ended from one of Odysseus' many clever plans, he now has to find his way home to Ithaca and it has already been 10 years since he left his homeland and family. Along with he men that he fought beside he began to start his way home to Ithaca on a ship. Across the great seas they traveled encountering many hold ups along the way. Odysseus is also stopped by many creatures and Gods and goddesses. They give him tasks that he must perform in order to reach his destination of home. Many of his true friends, and men die but he keeps at it with what little he has left in order to end his twenty year, crazy, yet amazing journey.
What I loved he most about reading the Odyssey was all of the many journeys and experiences that Odysseus ventured on. The book is very diverse with lots of action that always kept me on the edge of my seat. Whenever reading this book I didn't ever know what Odysseus would be up to next, and I loved that. Also the characters of the book are very interesting and they have many personalities. The men fight when they need to and protect and love each other when needed also. Some things that were let downs of the epic were that it was broken down into so many different parts and sections. The wording of the book was a bit confusing also, but I can live with that concluding that the book was written in ancient times. Overall the Odyssey was a great read and hopefully in the future of my English class we will read more epic novels like it!
In the book Secret of Skull Mountain by Franklin W. Dixon, the Hardy Boys are faced with a case to solve different than the ones given to them in the past. The city of Bayport is suffering from a water shortage that is threatening large industries and civilians alike. Although used to rounding up gangs and throwing quick punches, the Hardy Boys must use their detective skills to save their city. The two boys travel to the root of the problem on Skull Mountain where the reservoir lies, only to find out the mystery will take them out onto Barmet Bay and deep into menacing caves. With the help from two Engineers, the Hardy Boys try to find the bottom to mysterious explosions, random smoke trails, falling skulls, and ultimately the lack of water.
I enjoyed this book because it set itself apart from all the other Hardy Boys books. In most of the other books, they are carried around the Globe to solve international mysteries. However, their water shortage problem is one that hits very close to home for the Hardys. Another reason I enjoyed this book is because I think that both Hardy Boys are respectable as characters. They have a moral code and stick to it. I also agree with the author's views and opinions. Though they are not stated specifically, they are displayed among his characters and how they act. The Last reason I found this book hard to put down was the gripping plot line. There was not a moment where I wanted to stop reading. The cause of this was the many plot twists and high action that the author so vividly described. From fight scene to road chase it kept end me on the edge of my seat.
The book I'm reviewing is Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne. Monument 14 is a book where a few high school students and elementary kids all get stuck in a supermarket after a huge storms hits. The major network is down so the main character Dean and the other kids can't contact anybody for help. During the storm a military laboratory is destroyed causing dangerous chemicals to get released into the air. The chemicals affect people in dangerous ways depending on what blood type they are. Because of this the kids can't go out side because there are to many risks and they could die. During the disaster kids must figure out a way to live peacefully with one another. Right when everything is looking good two stance men appear at the store. The men are let inside and they give the children good news. The government is staging an evacuation only a few miles from where they are. The kids get everything together and protect themselves so they can leave. Then it is found out that one girl is pregnant so she doesn't want to go out side risking the baby's health. Because of this she stays behind and so does Dean and two little kids who don't want to leave them.
Monument 14 is a gear book with lots of detail. All the characters are well developed so you see how they feel. The auction just starts near the beginning so there aren't many dull moments. Also it gives details about what everything is like so you can imagine that you are there with them. Even though this book is really good there is one major thing I would change. The ending. The book just suddenly ends leaving you wondering what is going to happen next. All together this is a great book that I recommend.
Deadline by Chris Crutcher, is a young adult fiction book that tells about Ben wolf, a senior in high school, who goes to get his sports physical and finds out that he has a rare and likely incurable blood disease. He is given a year at most to live. Ben decides to hide this from his stressed out dad, schizophrenic mother and (almost) twin brother and refuses treatment for the disease, saying he doesn't want to go out "bald and puking". Instead, Ben decides he will live this next year to the fullest, with his idea of fullest involving things such as trying out for the football team (weighing only 120 pounds!), getting Dallas Suzuki to love him, and annoying his civics teacher every chance he gets. Ben knows eventually he will reach the inevitable point of death, but while he's still living you better believe he's going to make it memorable.
I really liked that even though there were dark undertones to this story it still had a lot of humor. I liked that there was a character who said "you know what? I'm dying, I don't need to be nice, I'm going to say exactly what I feel about everyone!" And really took the idea of no consequences to another level. I didn't like, however, that Ben chose not to tell his family about his condition until he was too far to receive any type of treatment. His family might have been unstable but they would have showed him support and it would have given them time to prepare for his death. I would've changed the book so that it did not have so much about football in it (I find it kind of boring) and I wanted more closure at the end of the story as to what happened to Ben's family and friends.
In a place, where everything is suppose to be perfect, one girl see it as a prison. In the book Matched by Ally Condie, the main character, Cassie, has been living in a community where everything is planned out from who you marry to when you die. When Cassie turns sixteen she attends a party where she will be matched to her sole mate. After she is matched with Xander ( who is also her best friend), she gets a hard drive with all of his information on it. When she opens it, another face pops up on the hard drive instead of Xander's. Her whole world is turned upside down after that. She wants to be with Ky but at the same time they can never be together because the Society forbids it. Cassie starts to find out the Society isn't as perfect as it seems.
I liked how the book was set up in a dystopia and explained into great detail how in this society everything was set up. You could see yourself in the story and having to abide by their rules. I also liked how they described the dresses as a symbol and how you got to choose the color of your dress.
I didn't like that there was nothing else that excited me. When they did something against the rules, like writing their names, it didn't kick the adrenaline into my system and worry me about how they were going to get caught. I also didn't like how they ended the book because it would have been better to conclude it in the exact opposite way. I didn't like how I was able to guess what would happen next in the story. I also didn't like the fact that she left her family behind to go find Ky.
If I could rewrite the story I would change the love triangle to her family breaking up and her having to choose and end up leaving with her brother because of her parents. I would also add more color into the story, meaning when I read it I pictured a dull grey community with nothing but grey clothes and buildings. I would make color something more dangerous than writing was. Although the fact that she learned writing from Ky comes into play later on in the series.
Emergent was a book i was expecting to be detailed, and adventurous, it is the second to Beta by Rachel Cohn. Being very challenging to deal with ZHara goes through great lengths to get her life together, after her terrifying shipwreck, where she lost her 2 friends. Living the life among clones, and being the only person who can actually feel, ZHara finds out that she is cloned , but still has her soul. Dealing with the past and trying to live with the present is something brought up in every second of her life. Not knowing the real facts about what has happened, ZHara jumps to conclusions about the things she doesn't even know.
This book was slightly disappointing to me because the author kept on relating back to so much, that I was thinking why didn't the author just make a book about Zhara's life before the wreck. Also I felt like the author was being a little dramatic with the characters life-style before everybody thought she was dead. There were many things I did enjoy reading in Emergent like the fact that the author didn't cut off any characters. Also how she explains how the characters around ZHara affected her former life before everybody thought she was dead. Emergent is a one of a kind type of book, I haven't read anything like it, and that make me like it a little bit more because it's different.
The Odyssey by Homer tells about Odysseus's trip back to Ithaca and about the ending of the Trojan war. The parts that I liked about the Odyssey was the Cyclops and the great bow test. I liked it how it tells what Odysseus does to get himself and his men free and out of the cave from the cyclops. I liked how odysseus feels when he gets the bow and puts the string back on it and shots the bow through the12 ax rings. The parts that I did not like was the sea monster part and when Odysseus has to go to the land of the dead to find out how he is going to get home. The part about the whirl pool and the sea monster was kind of dumb. Odysseus had to decide which sea monster to go to. I think Odysseus should of went around both of the sea monsters and then get back on the sea way to Ithaca. The second part that I didn't like was the land of the dead. Odysseus had to go there to see how he was going to get back home to Ithaca. I think Odysseus should of just walked pass all of the dead people and keep the goat with him instead of just going around and trying to stop the dead people from taking the goat. If I would change a part of the story I would change the part of Circe's island and make it be that Circe helps Odysseus's men out instead of turning them into pigs.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver tells a story about a girl named Sam that has an accident and ends up dying. Sam wakes up the next morning and gets a redo of her last day. She gets another chance to re-live just that day. She does things differently and when she wakes up the next morning she's still in that same day. She tries to save another girls life named Juliet to see if that will get her her life back.
I'm pretty neutral about this book. I really enjoy it, its very intriguing but after awhile having her play out the same day over and over again gets kind of boring towards the end of the book. I like how she plays out each day differently, how one day she's so nice and sweet and the next shes mean and not a good friend. I don't like how there are so many deaths in this book. Three people die and I'm not big on deaths.
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay tells a not-so-common love story about quite possibly the most unfortunate people to ever exist. Everybody around Josh Bennett, everybody he loves, seems to be either dead or dying. His mother, sister, father, and grandparents. With his kind of luck it's obvious why he chooses to shut out all of the people who try to get in. It's almost as if he has an invisible force field that shoots back anybody who tries to break the barrier. If you think that's an extreme case of self-isolation then you've got another thing coming. Nastya Kashnikov doesn't talk. I'm not saying she's socially awkward or shy, she actually never talks. At least not to anybody but herself. Her reason? Just as good, or should I say bad? Years before she entered the world of Josh Bennett, Nastya had a tragic, life altering thing occur to her. Since then, she's never been the same. These two are equally as broken and seemingly made for each other. My favorite thing about this story is how developed and hilarious the characters are. Katja knows the wit within most high school students and it was definitely shown throughout all of the book. When it comes to something I'd like to change about the book I'd change the ending. I understands what happens to them but I think Katja should have elaborated more. I'd like to know more about what happens to them after high school.
Payback time from Carl Deuker is a fictional story about someone named Mitch. Mitch is in high school, he is also not very athletic. When he tries out for the football team he realizes that it is not for him. Mitch then joins the journaling club at his school because he also likes to journal, he wants to be a reporter. As a reporter he as to report the football team. When he is doing that he realizes there is a good player on the football team. As he looks more into the football player he realizes something strange about him. Mitch watches the player play in his football games. Mitch also watches what he does off of the football field. I would rate this book a three out of five. I would give this book a three because it was a pretty good book, but there where some boring parts in the book. Most of the time it was good though. It was a easy book to read, and it was interesting. Some of the parts of the book that I did not like where when Mitch kept trying to loose weight. It took to long to describe.
Ender's Game, an intriguing novel with a powerful hook, yet the ending felt rushed it was overall an excellent book, with detailed information and sometimes words not used much now in time, provides fascinating literature. I cannot express how interesting it was and hard to put down. But the ending did seem like it was in a hurry to tie things up and get the book over with.
Ender, the main character in the book, is a genius, and is push through difficult task with little help, but from only a few loyal friend, as people throw everything they have at him, trying to see him crack. He has little time to think, forcing him to improvise in many situations.
I recommend this book to any reader.
In The Odyssey by Homer, Odysseus the main character goes on a colosal aventure in search of his homeland Ithaca. On his quest Odysseus is faced with many challenges that test his strength, intelligence, and will of getting home to his son and wife who he hasn't seen in many years. Odysseus made some friends and many enemies along the way, some trying to help him find his home and others trying to stop him.
Overall, the book was good and there were some things I didn't like at all and some things I loved. What I liked about this book was all of the places Odysseus traveled and all the characters he met while in search of his home. The challenges Odysseus faced were all very different, some requiring strength and others intelligence. I didn't like home there were so many characters with such similar names, it was hard to keep track of who was who. Also this book was written a long time ago and doesn't use the same english as today. There were many times I had no clue what was going on because of the old english. I thought there were to many events packed into parts of the book that made it easy to get lost and not remember everything that happened in the section.
This Lullaby by Sara Dessen tells of a cold-hearted girl named Remy who swears to never date a musician like her father. Remy has been scarred by her parents' divorce and the death of her father who leaves her with famous song he has composed. After the divorce, her mother has been through many marriages that always lead to disaster. Seeing her mother, she wishes never to be in a committed relationship since it is a bother. Senior year is finally over with, and Remy can't wait to move away to college. She prepares her summer with fun and maybe a boyfriend for just the summer. But when she meets Dexter, a musician, her whole world starts to change.
Before reading this book, I initially thought it would be a sweet, love story and so it was. Yet, I cringed after reading a couple chapters. It is very cliché and predictable as a stereotypical love story would be, but not the good kind. When reading a book, liking the main characters is a must for me, but Remy, I did not like. Her snarky, arrogant attitude is not pleasing, and it takes her a while to realize she needs to change. She constantly looks down on people's relationships and shows no patience to people who annoyed her. Remy is often rebellious and defiant and displays her kindness in an odd way. It's understandable for the author to create an imperfect character so they can develop and mature later on, but it took a long time to get to that point. It was becoming tiring to the point where I wanted to stop, but I continued on. A positive outlook from this novel is when she starts to change. Her starts to soften, and her feelings untangle. I enjoyed seeing her progress and new persecutive in life. I recommend this book to those who enjoy reading cliché love stories.
The Story of Us, by Deb Caletti tells a story of a girl named Cricket, who doesn't really know what weather she wants to be with her long time boyfriend or break up. In the beginning of the book Cricket is leaving to go to a beach house with her mom and brother because her mom is getting married. Cricket's mom has a reputation of dumping her boyfriends at airports when her boyfriends left on a trip. Cricket was skeptical weather or not her mom was gonna leave her previous fiancé. As the book goes on it starts to unfold more and more of what happened in the past and half way through the book Cricket finally tells the story of how her and her boyfriend have gotten into to the break they have currently been in. Throughout the book, Cricket sends emails to her boyfriend about how things are going and pretty much what's up in her life and how she feels.
In the book, I really enjoyed how Cricket sends emails to her boyfriend, and in those emails she writes what they used to do when they were together and how they met. I really enjoyed those parts because it would give you more of an idea what she did to make her and her boyfriend go into a break. Although I didn't enjoy how in the end her boyfriend goes to her house and says something to her and leaves. I really didn't understand the point of that part. If I could change anything in the book it would be that part, I would put more detail of what happened and I would extend the "talk" that Cricket and her boyfriend had.
Love Letters To The Dead by Ave Dellaira tells a story that a girl is a new kid and her teacher wants them to write letters to the dead. She started to do that every day to all different people telling them what is going on her her life. What I liked about this story was that instead of having a journal that has all her secrets in she writes to the dead, people she may know or just random people. Most of the story's really got intense and i couldn't stop. The worst part was how can a little girl go through all the stuff she has been through. She's been through loosing family, friends being to become a bad person. What I would change about the story was probably would be her not trying to be more like her sister and not being how she is so she has friends. I would probably give this book a 4 out of 5.
The book City of Bones was action packed with a little love triangle. Every good book has to have a good love triangle right?

Once Clary's mom goes missing and her evil dad is the main suspect, Clary and her friends seek out to not only get revenge but also her mother back. They go through many obstacles and many heartbreaks till finally the end, but is it really the end?
This book was just amazing. I'm not usually fond of cliff hangers but what Cassandra Clare did was brilliant. Yes the book has the typical love triangle but that's what adds to the story. Clary being in love with the arrogant jerk and her best friend In love with her. Not only is there love in the book there's also adventure. Clary and her friends go through fights and battles with things and creatures that are not seen from the human eye. The humor in the book is the finishing my touch on the book to make it amazing. Every adventure book has to have humor doesn't it? But overall it was good.
Vlad was a quiet keep to himself kinda guy. Everyone teased him about his darkened clothes calling him names like emo. We'll vlad had a huge secret that nobody knew except him his aunt and his best friend Henry. Vlad was a vampire. It was so hard keeping it a secret from everybody. Vlad's favorite teacher was soon found deadhead next week. The teacher that replaced him was Mr. Otts. Vlad's world should soon change dramatically when he found out Mr. Otts secret.
I love this book! This book relates to high school so much it's ridiculous. What I don't like a bout the book is how the ending went. It could of been better. If I could change the on thing about this book it would be the ending most likely. This book had a lot of surprises. I do suggest this book to anyone who likes fiction books.
The chronicles of Vladimire Tod
I am reading a book called Ghost Ship by Diane Carey. It's a book that takes place during the future, in the Star Trek world.
In it, an aircraft carrier gets sunk by a mysterious entity and the whole crew disappears. Deanna Troi, the counselor aboard the Enterprise, a starship affiliated with the United Federation of Planets, suddenly wakes up from a dream about it just as the Enterprise is attacked by the same entity. The crew must now figure out a way to avoid the same fate, by negotiation or any other means, before it's too late.
I like the way they bring up a previous event to lead into the story. It really makes it seem confusing the way the story should take place in the future, but at first doesn't.
the The Scorch Trials is an adventurous, amazing, interesting book. This book is part of The Maze Runner series. In The Scorch Trials a group of friends are thought to be saved, but really just starting phase two. The main character Thomas and his friends are left in a dessert with a sickness. While they try to get out and find a cure Thomas realizes he has been separated from the girl he loves. When the group up friends also known as the gladers get separated Thomas has no one left except for a crank. A crank is a person with the sickness and have gone crazy. The crank with Thomas is a girl and she's not crazy yet. Thomas and Brenda, the crank, set off to find the other gladers and the cure, but they don't have smooth sailing. I love this book because there's a surprise behind every corner. I would suggest this series and I'm looking forward to the next book.
