Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett

An interesting mystery with lots of twists and turns to keep you hooked.  Full of puzzles and codes, and plenty of things you have to figure out on your own.

Rider (ios app)

This app is great to pass the time, and it works without wifi.

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Great book filled with a lot of suspense and mystery.  Recommended for teens who love adventure and action.

(This is a Battle of the Books 2017 title; reviews are welcome!)

Animal Farm by George Orwell

Animal Farm is about the Russian Revolution.  This book centers around Joseph Stalin, who takes over the farm.  This book is a satire and amazingly written; it brings interest to people of all ages.

A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

Not very interesting, but very meaningful and full of information about how a minority lived back in the day.  About a poor African American family living in a small house and their struggles in life.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

It is a cool world, because there's a bunch of mythical creatures and action.
