The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

In the midst of the Roarin' Twenties, Nick Carraway moves to the East Coast and is drawn into the glittering, fast-paced world of New York's elite.  Of this crowd, the richest, most mysterious member is the elusive Jay Gatsby, who Nick observes over the course of a summer.  Nick watches Gatsby's frustration, love, and ultimate downfall.  Fitzgerald has written an expertly crafted novel that is a pleasure to both read and analyze.  I would highly recommend this novel!

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

It is amazing.  It is about Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase.

The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure

It was really good because it told about the kindness of people.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway by Jeff Kinney

The book was pretty good and had so many good laughs, but it seemed unrealistic in the way that it portrayed the so-called "paradise."  It seems weird that they didn't hear about things that happened there and how it was great when Greg's parents went there years ago, but it sucks now.

Took by Mary Downing Hahn

It's about a girl who loves a doll, and it gets stolen, then she goes missing and they go on a search to find her.

The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

A boy lives in a life where there are two sides in the town and his side is very poor and has a lot of crime.  He notes that there is more to life than fighting and stealing.

Backlash by Sarah Darer Littman

This is a great book that revolves around the awareness of cyberbullying and also the dangers of it.  It is a good book for any teen and involves drama that is enjoyable for all teens.  It helps people to understand the many sorrows and happinesses in a teen's life.  It's an outstanding book.

The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

Tension is greater than ever between the socs (the rich kids) and the greasers (the poor kids).  The greasers think that the socs have everything and that their lives are easy.  Ponyboy Curtis is proud to be a greaser and shows off his long hair with pride.  One day someone takes things too far...

Seasons after Fall (video game)

Seasons after Fall is a cute hand-drawn puzzle game in which you (Fox) use the power of the seasons to solve the problems of the main spirit stuck to stay at the cachary.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a great book.  It is very entertaining and exciting.  The main characters are Hermione, Harry, and Ron.  I would rate this book 10/10; it was a very great book.

Baby Driver (movie)

In Baby Driver, the main character, Baby, is trapped between a rock and a hard place.  He made one mistake and is now in debt, working as a getaway driver.

This movie also has a killer soundtrack.
