2012

A girl named Daleny feel through a hole in the ice and she died and was brought back to life and because she was under ice water she developed brain damage but didn't show any signs of it. Delany formed a super natural instinct to be able to tell when people were going to die. There is so much more to the book and i highly recommend it!!!

Amazing Book. One of my favs.

The great thing about this book is it keeps you wondering what's going to happen next. For example: Delaney has an accident that can lead up to serious problems. Such problems as? Keep reading to find out! The title doesn't really match what the story is about. Though you can't judge a book by its cover!

The book do have the true story paratroopers. She spend alot of time research about the America 's first black paratroopers . It insteresting about African Americian . The book is about history of Africian Americian and Americian fighting to protect our country , they even fight Japanese, Hitler and many more. I liked how the soldiers in African Americian never gave up . I learned more facts about the Japanese balloon and Vietnam War. Their good and bad about this book. I felt bad that Japanese balloon on Americian 's forest and children get killed . The good parts is that Americian soldiers and Africian solders work together and help each other . There more good and bad in book , I have fun learning more about soldiers in United States.

Shine by Lauren Myracle (3 reviews)

When I read this book it really took my heart and soul back to the Carolinas. I would recommend this book to any given person. It touches a lot of emotions and the book ends leaving a little smile on your face and a warm touch to your heart. That every description said about the towns in North Carolina made me reminence of Lancaster South Carolina. A home I'll always go back to.

This book had a boy named Patrick Truman and he got attacked as a hate crime because he was gay. His friend spent weeks trying to solve what happened to him but everyone would just mess the story up. After a week or so stuff started getting worse and someone came forth with help and the person who did the crime will surpirse you. It is a really good book.

Rating: 4 Q. Better than most.

           Shine by Lauren Myracle is a rare book as it engulfs you the moment you set your eyes on it. The realistic mystery it entails grips your heart. I would recommend this book, although, I would make sure you don't have any plans as you won't be able to tear yourself away. One thing I add though is that is very unrefined and shouldn't be given to pre-teens and younger.

Middle Ground by Katie Kacvinsky

Middle Ground
Houghton Mifflin 2012

I think the book was amazing because the girl lived by herself. She misses her boyfriend. He comes back and then her boyfriend changes her life. She never gave up. She imagined her boyfriend and she would have a good life. She has a lot of friends and her parents support her, but they don't trust her. Now her parents believe in her. Back then she did a lot of bad things, like getting kicked out of a club. Now she does good things and she's out of jail.
I liked the book beacuse shows that Maddie never give up and I glad that she remember her boyfriend Justin . If she don't remember her boyfriend than she have a hard life .

Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink by Stephanie Kate Strohm

I would definitely recommend this book, I loved it! My favorite aspect of the story was that it took place at a living museum and just like the main character Libby I am in love with eighteenth century clothing. It is fascinating to read about all of Libby's wonderful summer adventures especially with the ghost!
