    I read The Fault in our Stars by John Green. I would reccomened it for its amazing plot, outstanding vocabulary, and excellent writing by John Green. If you choose to watch the movie based on the book, I would reccomened you read the book first. I ‘m not sure how to tell the plot without giving the whole book away, and the only person who can explain it is John Green himself.

    I have a big long line of books ahead of me including Maze Runner, Hunger Games, Ranger’s Apprentice, and Pathfinder. But right now i am working on finishing Pendragon and I’m on the 10th and final book of that. I’m excited to have Pathfinder added to the library, as it has been recommended to me by my friends. But the best book this year is the 4th book of Pendrgon, The Reality Bug.

    Another one of my favorite books is called “Time After Time”, which I bought at the school book fair and I loved it. It’s about a boy named Bennett, who finds out that he has the unique talent of time traveling. On his way to see his late grandmother in the past he meets a girl named Anna in 1995, and falls in love with her. He keeps going back to see her over and over again, but starts worrying that he is changing her future which he shouldn’t be doing. Then he witnesses something that he knew he shouldn’t have seen. After seeing this he’s not sure if he should see Anna anymore. “Time After Time”, is a beautiful book on how two people from different times go to extreme lengths to stay together, and love each other like they’ve never loved anyone before.

    My favorite book this year was “Mathlete Vs. Athlete” because the too brothers were trying to get mainly in to something different like the boy thats basketball doesnt make the team his geeky brother does and he really wants to get on the basketball team but the geek doesnt know how to play basketball and he just wants to quit but he really tries.

    My favorite book is The Secret Scroll from the series The Daughters Of the Moon, by Lynne Ewing. It goes sometimes through serious moments, and its fantasy which I like the most. The most thing that is great about this book, is because, the character Catty, gets the secret scroll cause she’s the heir of the scroll, but really, a follower, Stanton, which is worthy to the Atrox, is really the heir of the scroll. Its really hard to stop reading through the book, cause when I read it, I could’t even stop reading it until I knew what was gonna happen next.

    I really like The Day I Died. It a good story and can really make you think, are ghost really there? It was scary but, also funny at times. (Though if you died it wouldn’t be funny).

    I read Ender’s Game and Ender’s Shadow at the very beginning of this year. At first, while reading Ender’s Game, it was rather slow, and I thought maybe I had made the wrong choice. But after a thrill with Bonzo sends the book to my top five* easy. Also, as we see the same story but in different perspective, in Ender’s Shadow, we notice a whole new element to the plot. It shows the horrors of Bean’s life, and the terror of his decision, to fight or join the legendary Ender.

    After looking back at this book and its plot, I also see some amazing qualities and small details that make this story shine. Although it takes place in the future, it shows they still need strategy and they have to think about their plans before they go blundering into alien planets. Orson Scott Card, the author of these books, is a spectacular writer and I suggest reading his phenomenal prints. He also wrote my all-time favorite book that I read last year, PATHFINDER. That series is a whole other deal, that takes place not only in another time, but on an Earth Colony far across the universe. Please check these books out and read them over summer-fall. They are complicated, but are a great read that everyone should know.

    *1. PATHFINDER
    2. Ender’s Shadow
    3. Pendragon book 9
    4. Pendragon book 10
    5. Ender’s Game

      Owen,

      Thank you for your fantastic review of the Ender Wiggin series! I’ve taken your advice and added the Pathfinder series (book and audio book in MP3 format) to our book order for next year.

    Throughout this year I have read a ton of books, almost all of which I thought were amazing. But, one that I thought was unique and special is a book called, “Nest”. It is about a girl named Naomi , but nick-named Chirp. She lives on the Cape and loves birds, and watching them too. Her mother starts limping on one leg. Her mother grows worse and worse, until her mother has to be moved to a health-care place where her mother can stay with someone to help her at all moments needed. Chirp notices that when she visits her mother that she’s not the same anymore. Her mother doesn’t remember any of the good times they had together and it breaks Chirp’s heart. When the doctors say that her mother is ok she comes home but still isn’t herself. Chirp also becomes friends with the trouble-maker next door, but finds out that he’s not so bad. The book “Nest” is a powerful, and heart-breaking story, with its ups and downs, and is one of the best books I’ve read this year.

      I liked the Boy on the wooden box. It was a great book, hearing that helped me understand just how mean and hurtful the Nazi could really be.
