This Lullaby by Sarah Desser

This Lullaby is about a very upright, straight-faced girl who meets a laid-back rocker. She believes that all relationships are doomed to end, even though she starts to fall in love with him. A great book about love, heartache, and more.
RATING: 5 out of 5

Hate List by Jennifer Brown

Hate List touches on the difficult topic of a school shooting. It was different from a normal school shooting type of book because of the point of view, which was from the best friend of the person who did it; this was also a person that helped write the list that her best friend shot off of. As the school tries to figure out where the villian who helped write the list was, the main character ultimately learns about herself. I like the way flashbacks were interspersed throughout the book.

The Warrior Series by Erin Hunter

The Warrior Series is a great read for middle school aged kids. It is a fictional read, and properly detailed. At first I thought it was stupid, but then I got so interested and couldn't put the book down! I read this 30+ book series this summer. If you like adventure and cliff hangers, this is the book series for you!
RATING: 4.5 out of 5

Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Farmer Boy is a great book! People who like to read about prairie days would enjoy this book. Even though it is not a short book it is very detailed.
RATING: 5 out of 5

Alex Rider: Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz

Skeleton Key is an exciting adventure. Alex Rider is back, and he has to stop an evil Russian from fusing a nuclear bomb and blowing up the world. Filled with fast-paced action, this is an awesome page-turner.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby is about a young man who fell in love with a woman before he went to war. The woman he loved only loved rich men, so he figured the only way he could be with her was for him to become rich. He would do anything he could to be with her.
