Reviewer: Mercedes M. Age 14                  Book Title: The Elite      Author: Kiera Cass           Rated: 5 Stars
Review: Kiera Cass does an fantastic job on writing “The Selection” series. The book has so much feelings in it like sorrow, love, comedy and action that you never know what will happen in the book. I like that the book has all those feelings in there, but I just like so much that this series has me wanting to keep reading them.

Reviewer: Mercedes M. Age 14                                Book Title: Catching Fire               Author: Suzanne Collins                                Rated : 4 and a half Stars
Review: The book is better than the movie because it gives you more information. I think Suzanne Collins did such a great job at writing this book and putting hard work into. This book is filled: action, romance comedy and sorrow. When I read this book it definitely had a twist ending.

Reviewer: Melody T. Age 16       Book Title: The Dead House        Author: Dawn Kurtagich                                Rated: 4 Stars
Review: It was disturbing and creepy, yet compelling and enticing. After you finish, you want to read it over just to absorb it all.

Review: The Selection is an fantastic book and it is now one of my favorite books. The book was filled with romance, comedy and action. All these things made it a good book, but what I like most about it is that the book has this interesting quality that just wants me to keep reading.

Reviewer: Mercedes M. Age 14                                Book Title: The Horse and His Boy            Author: C.S. Lewis           Rated: 3 Stars
Review: The beginning of the book was a little slow, but when I started to keep reading it, it got better. The book then became more interesting and adventurous.

Reviewer: Mason L. Age 17         Book Title: The Elementia Chronicles Book One: Quest for Justice                               Author: Sean Fay Wolfe                                 Rated: 5 Stars
Review: It’s a good book that has adventure, suspense and represents my favorite game, Minecraft. So cool!

Reviewer: Mercedes M. Age 14                                Book Title: Isla and the Happily Ever After            Author: Stephanie Perkins                Rated: 4 Stars
Review: Isla and the Happily Ever After is a great book about love and tragedy. I like the book because it does have its twists and turns just like real life. No matter what happens to Isla and Josh they always go chasing back to each other.
