Everything that Makes You

Everything that Makes You

The concept of this book is very interesting and creative. However, the book constantly changes between the two characters stories, which gets confusing. NOT a mystery, but none of the tags are right.

The Wonder of All Things

[Spoiler Alert!!] This was one of the best books I have read in a while. I really liked the different events and surprising things that happened. My favorite part was the end when Ava and Wash each told each other they loved each other. The only thing I would change would be to not put the cuss words in because without them it would make it more relaxing.

Dangerous

This book was quite good, but at some points, I thought some events were a bit unlikely, and sometimes there was not enough time spent explaining or expanding on an event.

Dangerous

What it lacked in tactful writing technique and vocabulary, it made up for with action packed scenes and ridiculously dramatic events. Though it was not boring, the author tried too hard to make it too science fiction without enough explanation. Categorizing it into the Sci-Fi genre causes me to compare it to Crichton but she could not match up. The romance part of the novel was good though.

The Scar Boys

The Scar Boys

Harry Jones got tragically scarred after being tied to a tree during a lightning storm where he was severely burned on his whole body. He was mentally scarred by all the bullying throughout his whole life. This story is about him growing up and using music as a way to belong after so many years as an outsider. This novel speaks to teen boys in their search for belonging, which is nice because there are so many books for teen girls and not so many for teen boys. I would recommend this book because it portrayed the importance of looking at things from all sides of a situation. This witty and inspirational book was a pleasure to read.
