Tangerine by Edward Bloor

When I picked this book up, I was hesitant. It seemed like another mediocre book. I was pretty far off the mark. It is amazing, very deep, and suitable for a wide age range. it is very moving. The story follows a young boy who is legally blind, who is trying to come to terms with his shaky past and his undecided future.

Blue is for Nightmares by Laurie Stolarz is a very addicting book. Stacey Brown has dreams of murders in her mind and uses folk art magic I believe its called to try and stop them. Last time she ignored them, a little girl was brutally murdered and her dreams revolve around Drea, her best friend getting stalked.

i thought the books were good but only if you could fall in love with the characters... the first movie sucked and the actors were horrable but the second movie wasnt that bad... then again i got dragged to the midnight showing so i could have just been SUPER tired

I read Life As We Knew It in school last year and the author came to my school to talk to us. It is an amazing book.

"Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins
-Very good, lots of action and a little of romance

"The Devil's Arithmetic" by Jane Yolen
-Very good gateway book to learning about the Holocaust

"Wolf Cry" by Patricia Briggs
-In the adult section technically, but still good. Involves some violence...

"Peeps" by Scott Westerfeld
-Interesting twist on the vampire myth...

"Going Bovine" by Libba Bray
-Cute tale of a boy diagnosed with mad cow disease who sets out to try to cure himself

"Leviathan" by Scott Westerfeld
-Retelling of WWI, where the opposing sides are instead the Darwinists and the Clankers. Darwinists use genetically altered creatures. Clankers use only mechanical means to solve problems.

The Hunger Games by Suzzane Collins

this is the first book in a trilogy. it pits 24 teens against each other in an arena and they fight to the death. the main characters are good models and the book teaches you to be smart and to think everything through. it takes off from the start. i finished it in 5 days. i'm sure anyone would enjoy it. [anyone, that it, who can take some killing]

instead of being obsessed with twilight i'm obsessed with percy jackson series. it's about a boy who finds out that he's a half god and half human, and he has all of these cool powers and stuff. all the gods are included in the series somehow, and its all about this war against olympians and titans. This is such a great book! readit, and you'll agree.

I totally agree!

Hunger Games is one of the best books I have ever read. The second book is even better which doesn't happen often.

'The Knife of Never Letting Go' by Patrick Ness.

It tells of Todd Hewitt, a boy who has to run from everything and everyone he knew. He is part of the people who have moved to New World. There, men's thoughts can be heard by everyone... and there are NO WOMEN... or so they thought.

I recommend The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

summary- It's about a place called Panem that "grew out of the ground" after North America was destroyed. The capitol is harsh and cruel, and actually destroyed it's 13th districts because it was rebelling against the capitol. After that the Hunger Games began to teach the people that no matter what the capitol is stronger. The hunger games are where 1 male and 1 female tribute(around ages12-18) from each of the 12 districts are chosen to fight to the death in an arena, with only 1 victor. When 16 year old Katniss Everdeen volunteers for her little sister she becomes a contender in these games, having to survive the events that follow.

One of my teachers when i was 12 had us read this book in class. Everyone loved it! We are reading the sequel to it (Catching Fire) now as 8th graders. I highly recommend it.
