Cover ArtThe magician's guild
by Canavan, Trudi
I loved this book! Sonea is a beggar-child from the slums of Imardin, the famed capital of Kyralia and home of the Magician's Guild. Orphaned and taken in by an aunt and uncle, Sonea has grown up running with childrens' street gangs and picking pockets. She possesses a noble heart, however, and is only trying to make the best of her situation. Enter the Magician's Guild - a group uniformly hated by the lower castes of society, owing mainly to the magicians' disregard of those not magical, and to the yearly Purge - an event in which all members of the lower classes are rounded up and cast out of the city. Sonea and her friends are resisting the Purge one year when a seeming miracle occurs - the stone Sonea had thrown, assuming it would bounce off the magicians' protection spells just like every other stone has, passes through the barrier, knocking one of the mages unconcious. Sonea is forced to run for her life, convinced the magicians will kill her if they ever find her... (Book 1 of the Black Magician Trilogy)   posted Feb 22, 2005

Cover ArtTtyl
by Myracle, Lauren, 1969-
This was a really cool book. The entire thing is written like IMs, and oftentimes reminded me of myself and my friends chatting online. The story is a little slow-going, but the book still keeps you intrigued. Read it!   posted Jun 5, 2004

Cover ArtThe truth about forever
by Dessen, Sarah
Sarah Dessen is a great author and all of her books really make you think while telling a great story all at the same time. This one in particular was very good, and I recommend it.   posted Aug 21, 2004

Cover Art
This book was just okay for me. I didn't really think that it got interesting until around page three hundred- and then it ended without tying up any loose ends. I think that older teens and adults would appreciate this book more than I did.   posted Jun 23, 2004

Cover ArtThe scarlet letter
by Hawthorne, Nathaniel, 1804-1864
Do NOT read this book unless you have to read it for school! Honestly, I didn't understand more than a few words. If you're looking for a very mentally-challenging read, try to this one- but if not, I'd steer clear of it!   posted Jul 26, 2004

Cover ArtThe sword of Shannara
by Brooks, Terry
I think the book the sword of Shannara is an excelent book for any person who loves science-fiction. [Series: Shannara Trilogy #1]   posted May 10, 2004

Cover ArtThe chosen : a novel
by Potok, Chaim
Personally, I thought the book was a little boring and wasn't very interesting. I feel like the author was trying too hard to fill up the pages. Although many people I know like this book, I'd rather read something with more humor, modern language, and plot.   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover ArtDefine normal : a novel
by Peters, Julie Anne
This book was great. It told the story of two girls who were very different from each other and their gradual progression to becoming friends. This book was interesting, funny, and had a great message. I'd encourage everyone to read it.   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover ArtFeeling sorry for Celia
by Moriarty, Jaclyn
I think I've already reviewed this book, but I wanted to do it again in case any of you missed the first one. This book is THAT GOOD that one review of praise for it is just not enough. It is the most amazing, hilarious and interesting book, and is something that will have you laughing out loud. Read this book!!!   posted Aug 7, 2004

Cover ArtFeeling sorry for Celia
by Moriarty, Jaclyn
This is my new favorite book. It is written entirely in letters but still has an incredible story and plot that lasts until the very last page. It made me laugh out loud several times, and is a book you'll want to read again as soon as you finish it. Highly recommended!   posted Jul 18, 2004

Cover ArtSloppy firsts : a novel
by McCafferty, Megan
I thought this book was really well-written and definitely a page-turner. The main character is a really smart high-school aged girl who has to deal with lots of peer pressure, and she does, for the most part. This book is very interesting.   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover ArtThis lullaby
by Dessen, Sarah
Every book Sarah Dessen writes is amazing, and this one is no exception. While it has a predictable plot, the characters are all unique and have strong personalities. This is a great summer read!   posted Jun 5, 2004

Cover ArtBig Mouth & Ugly Girl
by Oates, Joyce Carol, 1938-
This book was really good. It was very interesting, entertaining and quite suspenceful at times. Check it out!   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover ArtSecond helpings : a novel
by McCafferty, Megan
I think I liked the first book, Sloppy Firsts, more. This one makes it sound like it's okay to do certain things (like drink, do drugs, have sex) at a young age, and that bothered me, but the characaters are interesting and the plot is good too, so people should still read it.   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover ArtFunny in Farsi : a memoir of growing up Iranian in America
by Dumas, Firoozeh
This book was very interesting. The author is an immigrant from Iran and talks about all of her experiences coming to America. She has lots of stories that involve a variety of people. It is humorous and serious at the same time, which makes it a really good book to read.   posted Aug 7, 2004

Cover ArtHarry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
by Rowling, J. K.
This book was on eof my favorite books of the Harry Potter series. The book is fast going and never secces action. The title got my right away and it is really unexpected in some parts.   posted Jan 4, 2005

Cover ArtToo much of nothing
by Moore, Michael Scott.
I liked how the author transitioned through the plot of the story; it was easy to follow, it made me think and feel for characters. The story is unique because Moore adds interesting subjects one wouldn't normally read about and he shows how the stereotype of a teenagers 'don't-mind-me' attitude isn't always as it seems. Too Much of Nothing depicts what a teenager must go through to understand the world and themselves...they have to make mistakes. It shares beliefs and political ideas from the youth's point-of-view. The bond of the two friends touches the reader because even though, at times, it might not seem that they're close, it becomes obvious their friendship runs deeper. .   posted Oct 27, 2005

Cover ArtEragon
by Paolini, Christopher
This book was great! Eragon is book #1 in the Inheritance trilogy. Eragon takes place in the land of Alagaisia. Eragon is a farm boy who has no idea who his father is. He's hunting in the forest when he finds the most beuatiful stone ha as ever seen. Turns out this isn't any ordinary stone, it's dragons egg. Eragon is an exciting book that talks about Eragon's advintures with his dragon.   posted Apr 9, 2004

Cover ArtHow not to spend your senior year
by Dokey, Cameron
This book was pretty good. It's about a teenage girl who has to move around all the time, and doesn't quite know why. The book has a very creative, humorous story. Definitely recommended.   posted Jun 5, 2004
