Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

Amazing! I fell in love with Elipse, a mysteriously romantic story of a unlucky girl, a vampire, and fate.

In Fire Star, the evil sibyl, Gwilana is trying to bring to life a real dragon (Gawain). Can David Rain stop her before she destroys the world?

Can David and his friends face polar bears, dragons, evil sibyls or will Gwilana succeed?

Whales on Stilts by M.T. Anderson

Whales on Stilts is mostly about Lily. The reason I said that is that when Career day came, Lily found her dad worked for a mad scientist that is planning to take over the world. So, Lily called her friends Katie and Jasper to help her to her dad's boss Larry. They do all kinds of things to stop the whales but it ended up the whales escaped to the city. But, Jasper got on to Larry's ship and broke the controllers which it stops Larry. Then, Larry cried and jumped into the water and swam away.

Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

In Eclipse, the third book of this series about vampires, Bella seems to be a stronger person, making her narration more dynamic. Her struggle between choosing Jacob or Edward is realistic, and I can't wait for the next one!

An anthology with the novel The Glory Field and poem and short story connections. About 5 generations of an African-American family from slavery (Africa) to about 1994. Drug content, rate PG mature.

Teen Idol by Meg Cabot

Teen Idol is a good book about a girl who changes things at the school. It was clever dialogue, great characters and a surprising ending. I loved it.

Crank by Ellen Hopkins

Regardless of the length, I couldn't put it down! Crank is about the struggle of a girl who enters into the world of drugs and boys. I got sucked in and related to her in ways I didn't see coming. I completely loved it!

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

The Color Purple has a wonderful plot, interesting (in a good way) characters and wonderful lesson learned. My only complaint is the high degree of sexual references mentioned. I give it a rating of "R", 17 years of age or older.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Pretty Little Liars is amazing! It was full of drama. An amazing plot. Perfect writing style.

With Every Drop of Blood by James Lincoln Collier

With Every Drop of Blood was so interesting that sometimes I stayed up late reading it because it was so good. It also teaches a lot about the civil war.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a good book about these pants that fit these four best friends even though they are all different sizes. After you read the first one you will definitely want to read the next ones.

The Third Eye by Lois Duncan

The Third Eye is an awesome book that everyone should read. It's about a girl who can see things that others can't. It is a must read! You don't want to miss this book.

Midnighters: The Secret Hour by Scott Westerfeld

The Secret Hour is the first book in the Midnighters series. It is an amazing book! It's about these people who are the only ones that can wake up at 12:00 when the town freezes, it's called "blue time". It sounds geeky but it's really not. You should read the whole series, there are three.

The First Part Last by Angela Johnson

The First Part Last is about a boy who is 15 named Bobby who discovers his girlfriend is pregnant. He must take care of his baby and decide if he wants to keep her or not.
