My Sister's Stalker by Nancy Springer

Nancy Springer
My Sister's Stalker
Holiday House 2012

I really enjoyed this book. It was a wonderful light read. I loved how the author used the veiw of the brother. How he tells you how he found out about the stalker online and follows him to Fairveiw. I loved how the story kept the reader in suspense until the very end. It was a great story.

Alex Sanchez
Boyfriends with Girlfriends
Simon & Schuster BFYR 2011

Boyfriends with Girlfriends is a must read teen book. I love the character development with the guys and how they don’t know what they are wanting. It’s cute and romantic. Keep up the good work. You got me hooked. I recommend this book to young adult females, they will love it.

Scarlet by A. C. Gaughen

Briana, 16
Scarlet
A. C. Gaughen
Walker and Company


Scarlet is a moving, fast paced, and drawing read that has unique aspects. The Robin Hood story has been retold often, but this is the most in depth and involved version I have read. it has a plot twist that most Robin Hood books don't touch. The anorexia thing was a little wierd before it was explained.

Moonglass by Jessi Kirby

Taylor, 15
Jessi Kirby
Moonglass
Simon & Schuster 2011

I thought this book was good but not absolutly great. In the beginning i was sort of confused about the characters, but once the story started evening out it started getting easier to understand. But overall this was a good book. I liked the whole idea of her wondering why her mother killed herself and the idea of the situation creates the character she becomes
