Cover ArtShadowmancer
by Taylor, G. P.
This is a book of fantasy, but not full out. It is about an ancient evil that is trying to overthrow god. It starts with this one man; Demurral who wants to be more powerful then god, but doesn't understand the full effect of his plans. He has one of the elements to make the world go down the drain, but he needs one other thing. There are three teenangers trying to stop this all from happening. It is an amazing and a page turning book. I suggest reading more of the summary!   posted Jun 29, 2004

Cover ArtNext summer : a summer boys novel
by Abbott, Hailey.
It was a really good book! Kind of like the sisterhood of traveling pants, but there are 3 main characters. They are cousins and all different. This is the sequel to Summer Boys and it really builds on the characters. It is most definately a page turner and a easy read.   posted Jun 12, 2005

Cover ArtHeaven eyes
by Almond, David, 1951-
This has a really good beginning with Erin, Jan and Moouse sailing away. There isn't much adventure though as it says there would be. It still is pretty well written, but that is why I give it 3 stars for the whole action and adventure of the book wasn't very amusing.   posted Jul 6, 2004

Cover ArtBreathing underwater
by Flinn, Alex
I thought this was an incredible story about a 16 year old boy who had an abusive father and got that trait passed down to him. Once his girl friend takes him to court he starts to write in a journal, where he realizes what kind of person he was. I definately rate this 5 stars! It was an extraordinary book!   posted Jul 16, 2004

Cover ArtBorn too short : the confessions of an eight-grade basket case
by Elish, Dan
This a hilarious book about a teenager boy who was well, just born too short! His best friend is a hot shot while he is pretty much the shadow. It is a book filled with laughs, some romance, and friendship! This is a quick read and an awesome book!   posted Jun 25, 2004

Cover ArtThis lullaby
by Dessen, Sarah
This book was awesome about a rock solid girl that goes by her own beat and has a plan for every guy that she dates. Except her plan starts to flaw when she meets Dexter. A hilarious singer of a band. Him and his friends and challenges are the joke of the book. She has lived a tough life being the mother for her well...mother. It is a book full of wit and humor. Read it.   posted Jun 28, 2005

Cover ArtThe boy next door
by Cabot, Meg
I like this book a lot. It was very creative, because it was written with just e-mail's back and fourth. It is a romantic comedy and a little bit of a mystery too. I really enjoyed reading this book! And the e-mails don't make it boring, it makes it a very fun read!   posted Jul 21, 2004

Cover ArtPride and prejudice
by Austen, Jane, 1775-1817
I loved this book! It was hard to read at first because it was written in the early 1800's, but it is one of the most amazing books. It's really well written. I would like to read all of Jane Austin's books if I caould that would be cool!   posted Aug 3, 2004
