       All Unquiet things is a book about murder that really isn't solved. The muderer of Carly is still out there. Her cousin and ex-boyfriend are trying to figure out who it is. Its a great mystery book. I like the way Anna Jarzab set up the book. I would reccomend it to teens and adults.

When I started reading this book I just couldn't stop it capured my attention in every way possible. Just the thought of this women putting her life on the line to learn about this remarkable terrorist group is mind boggleing. I never realized the KKK had such a horrific affect on the lives of blacks and republicans. I would recomend this book to anyone because it is absolutely remarkable and it will take your breath away. this book gives you the real scoop on what the KKK was about no other book I have read can even compare to this if you read it you will know what i mean

The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith (2 reviews)

Andrew Smith  
The Marbury Lens  
Feiwel and Friends    2010

           Jack Whitmore doesn’t cry. Ever. Not when he gets kidnapped, not when he barely escapes, not when he collapses at his best friend Conner’s.  Conner, the only person he’s ever cared about in his entire life, is there for him as usual. When they run into the guy that kidnapped Jack, Conner takes care of it. Unfortunately, ‘taking care of it’ accidentally leads to murder. The two boys try to forget everything and go on their planned summer break in England. That’s when things really go up in flames. A mysterious stranger gives Jack a pair of glasses that allow him to see into another world called Marbury. His mission there is to keep two younger boys alive in a place infested by monsters and nightmares. Horrified, Jack finds himself being pulled between two worlds; he begins to wonder which one is real. Conner appears in Marbury as well, only his mission seems to be killing Jack and his young charges. Everything is coming down around Jack’s head; his life is spinning out of control. But Jack doesn’t cry. This novel, clearly written for older teens, has quite a bit of language, mature themes, and violence; but for a reader with a strong stomach, this novel has many thought-provoking questions about life.

        Interesting idea, and the writing was well detailed.  I guess I just couldn't handle the story.    It's about a sixteen year old kid named Jack, who one night gets drunk and a friend's party and is kidnapped that same night.  He manages to escape, but is left scared.  So then he goes to England on a tour of a school, and a stranger hands him a pair of lens that allow him to see into a parallel world called Marbury.  I didn't get very far in this book, because I couldn't get passed the disturbing stuff related to the kidnapping, and I realize now that I don't like the main character who's as melancholy as you can get.  But it kept you wanting to read it anyways, despite the bad stuff.

The Best and Hardest Thing by Pat Brisson

Anqi,     12   
Pat Brisson   
The Best and Hardest Thing   
Viking Juvenile    2010   

        I guess you can say that from my five star rating that this was a book that was meant to be gushed over- but in all seriousness, this was not those kinds of books. Instead, it was one that had a funny, but an also sullen and solemn mood. The thing that attracted me the most to this book was its interesting format- a collection of poems that told one story and novel. The style reminded me of the book What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones, which is also written in poem form. While some might say that the poetry took away from Molly's story, I thought it not only contributed greatly but could not have been told otherwise. The novel follows Molly Biden (told in first person) who is described as saintly and is a goody-goody at school. After finally having enough of her strenuous reputation, Molly decides to break away, and successfully attracts the attention of the new boy at school, a senior of the name of Grady. While gaining Grady gains her some popularity, she also realizes she has become pregnant with Grady's child. The title indeed describes the choice Molly makes- will she go through abortion, or give birth to the baby? Through simple but deep verses, Molly describes the hardships of her pregnancies and the stressful choices she makes throughout the book, and while the plot itself is not original, the way it's told is interesting and original. The message is also a great one, and underlying the seriousness is a Molly Biden's unique humor and voice, which allows the story to take flight. A fast read, but entirely in-depth, The Best and Hardest Thing is one of the most thoughtful books I've ever read.

Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

Scott Westerfeld   
Behemoth   
Simon Pulse    2010
       
   It's the sequel of Leviathan, so I guess I can't really explain it because you have to read the first book to understand this one.  Basically, it's set during a steam-punk World War 1, and instead of it being the Axis vs. the Allies, its against two seperate advanced technologies.  On one side, you've got the Darwinists, who have mastered genetics to the point where they can fabricate beasts, then on the other, there's the Clankers, masters of mechanics who used high-tech machinery and robotics for combat.  The story itself follows two kids.  One is named Alek and he's an Austrian prince on the run from the Germans.  The other is Deryn, a girl who has joined the British Air Service disguised as a boy.  It's facinating that even though theses two are young, they almost act like adults when in the heat of battle, and there are a lot of interesting and strong characters.

Demonglass        2011

        The second book in the Hex Hall series was a decent continuation of the first book. But, I felt that it could've had more to it. The first book resolved problems. This book didn't seem to have a plot to it until the end. But it was a good read.

Hex Hall: Demonglass  
Hyperion    2011
     
   Demonglass was a disappointing novel after Hex Hall. I imagined more of the excellent character development that the previous book had, and an original plot and premise from the now cliched romance stories of today. Sadly, there was little, if none of that. Demonglass takes off right after the ending of Hex Hall. Sophie is moving to England for the summer, with her father, who she has never met until now. Coming along is Jenna and Cal, where very early on Sophie learns a worrying secret about. They spend the summer in troubling anxiety, learning that the Eye is getting closer than ever to the Council. While the plot had many twists and turns, they were gradual twist and turns. You had a crawling notion at the beginning of the book, and then at the end, your fears were confirmed. While many other books can do this expertly and still not lose interest in the reader, Demonglass tried, and failed in the process. There was also a lot less action than I wanted there to be, as there are only a few scenes in which the Eye and and the Council come together and fight. Most of the action appeared in the end, and by then, was long overdue. There are also a few tidbits of information throughout the book that are unnecessary and don't contribute to the plot at all. They were unneeded, and also a bit annoying. Sophie's personality was even less appeasing. Most of the book, she sounded like a selfish girl, meeting Archer, her love interest, even though she knew he was part of the Eye. I thought that was only there for romance sake, although some of it contributed to the plot. The romance itself was unrealistic between Archer and Sophie. Although they met and got to know each other in the first book, there are no real feelings in this one. I did not think the second book lived up at all to the first one. I hope the third book (as it is certain that there will be a third one) will be at least better than the second.

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

Jennifer Donnelly   
Revolution   
Delacorte Press    2010
     
       Andi Alpers life is falling apart; ever since her little brother Truman’s death she has failed to find closure. Her father has all but dropped out of the picture and her mother has spiraled into depression. She blames herself for her brother’s death and wonders if her life is even worth living. Just before she is expelled from school, her father, a Nobel-Prize winning scientist, returns to her life. Her father takes her with him to Paris on a special project involving a lost prince of France. Once there, Andi discovers a secret diary from a girl living through the French Revolution. Something strikes Andi eerily familiar about the girl’s story, and soon becomes entrenched in a story of the past. But one night in the catacombs under Paris, history becomes all-too-current. In this time-intertwining story, both girls encounter love, loss, music, past, future, pain, closure, and ultimately, life in all its terrible beauty. This was gritty, true to life novel that certainly didn’t flinch at describing the horrors of the French Revolution or the terror of losing a loved one. I believe this is a must read for any teen;  it was well written, engaging, and thought-provoking.

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi (4 reviews)

Paolo Bacigalupi
Ship Breaker 
Little, Brown    2010

            Ship Breaker is set in a post-apocalyptic future where after a time that people called the 'Accelerated Age' oil became scarce and grounded ships were taken apart for money, and the thin gap between the wealthy and the poor grew larger. Nailer, a boy who thinks he's about 14 or 15 years old, is part of the Ship Breakers, living a life of scavenge with his drug-addict father, and dreaming of a life on the clippers, ships that seem to fly on the waters and are meant for the 'swanks', people who can afford more than Nailer. One day, after a huge hurricane storm, Nailer finds a wrecked clipper, and must decide: will he scavenge the boat and tear it apart for its riches or rescue Nita, the beautiful girl who Nailer finds hidden beneath the wreckage? Paolo Bacigalupi gives an enlightening view on human's impact on our natural world, while providing an interesting, (and very realistic) cast of characters and a cascading waterfall of a culture that's so different yet in Ship Breaker is beautifully portrayed and seemingly real. The fast pace is set up by the action filled scenes and is always entertaining, along with a touch of romance that is greatly satisfying. A wonderful series that I'm waiting eagerly for, and successfully combines entertainment, the message for a healthier earth, and also a great story overall.

A Soft Place to Land by Susan Rebecca White

Susan Rebecca White   
A Soft Place to Land   
Touchstone, Simon & Schuster    2010

           A Soft Place to Land is a realistic novel that spans almost two decades from 1993 to 2009, and is about the emotional trial of two sisters, Ruthie and Julia, who at ages 13 and 16 discover their parents dead after a fatal plane crash over the Grand Canyon. While Ruthie and Julia love each other more than anything, they are seperated by the contents of their parents will, stating Julia live with her biological father and Ruthie to live in San Francisco with her Aunt Mimi and her Uncle Robert. While the distance and their parents' accident keeps them apart, mentally and physically, they both eventually grow up, Ruthie discovering a life of cooking and of the Berkely campus, and Julia unveiling her passion for writing after a childhood of drugs and scandal. Though will they forgive each other after a second accident throws them apart once more? While Susan Rebecca White's language and voice is both entertaining and beautiful, the plot turning and twisting with unexpected surprises, beauty, and hope, and the flashbacks of the sisters successfully contributing to the story, I thought that A Soft Place to Land lacked the character development that is usually desperately needed for a realistic novel like this one. Ruthie, a seventh grader at the beginning of the book, who was one of the goodie goodie students, a girl who wanted to impress her teachers and always turned in her homework in time, eventually becomes an irresponsible teenager and also loses much of her personality as she grows up. Although I know her parents' death must have affected this greatly, I thought that Susan Rebecca White should have showed us more of this change instead of quickly zipping to the future, and not showing us how this Ruthie came to be. I also thought that the character of Julia, Ruthie's older half sister, was poorly portrayed as we only looked through her thoughts in a few chapters of the book. However, while those few chapters did shine brightly and contributed much, I thought that Julia through her own eyes should've been seen in a few more pages of the book. While character development needs much more, the plot was excellent, except for the author's tendency to make some passages much slower than others, causing me to get bored at some points while the chapter before I was up and involved with the story. Overall, most of the book was enjoyable and readable, except for these few points.
