Xenoblade Chronicles (video game)

Xenoblade Chronicles can be many things: it can be funny, serious, epic, and downright beautiful. The animated, emotion-filled characters bring this game to life. The expansive, beautiful areas really inspire you to explore everywhere. The story is so well-written it makes you not want to put down the controller. Overall it's a game that really entices your brain.

Hope Was Here by Joan Bauer

This was a very inspiring, amazing book. The climax was very good and very intimidating.

The List by Siobhan Vivian

The book is about a list that's for the prettiest and ugliest. No one knows who can make the list. To some it doesn't matter but for some it can ruin their popularity.

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Very good book. Amazing plot and story line. Action packed, and interesting.

Marvel's Spider-Man (video game)

Very good. Fun, action packed. Really good story line and plot.

Avengers: Infinity War (movie)

It's a good movie with a lot of cliffhangers with some action from your favorite superheroes vs. some new villains. Now you decide who wins.

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

This heart filling book will make you not want to put it down. It is about love, courage, bravery and standing up for who you are. Lina has been vowing to take care of her family, but will she be able to promise to do that?

The Pros of Cons by Alison Cherry, Lindsay Ribar, and Michelle Schusterman

Three different girls, three different conventions, one convention center. When Phoebe, Vanessa, and Callie's conventions go dangerously wrong, there's only one cure: new-born friendship. A Nair-ed up turkey, an over-estimated relationship, and a messed up night is a great plot that made me laugh, cry, and relate.

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi

Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi's graphic memoir about growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. The reader watches "Marji" grow up from ages 6 to 14, and her struggle with her religion and political ideology, all while going through the normal trials of growing up. The reader learns about interesting periods of Iranian history, all while rooting for a spunky, relatable protagonist of a true story.

The Unlikely Spy by Daniel Silva

It was a really good book, and I would recommend it if you enjoy historical fiction. It takes real stories and answers all your questions from WWII and shows you how British Intelligence won the war.
