    Have you ever dreamed about being a superhero? Seeing the smiles of relief and gratitude on the faces of the people you saved? Admit it…all of us have dreamed about that at one point or another. But what happens to the people you can’t save? When Nova was young her family was alive and happy but one day a mysterious man with a gun shows up at the door. Nova doesn’t panic because she believes the Renegades, the superheroes, will save them. He shoots her father. She doesn’t give up hope. He shoots her mother. Nova still prays. And then, he shoots her baby sister. He almost shoots Nova but she uses her powers of putting people to sleep by her very touch, to save herself. Six-year old Nova is taken in by her Uncle Ace and a band of villains. That day something changes in Nova. The hopeful little girl dies and a fierce little nightmare takes her place. Now, she wants revenge on the superheroes who didn’t come to save her family. The ones with the flashy suits and the big smiles who didn’t save that little girl in trouble. The only problem is that the Renegades are a huge organization and Nova and her companions are just no match for them in terms of brute strength. The villains need to beat them with their brains. So when an opportunity comes along for Nova to spy on them from the inside of the very organization the opportunity is just too good to pass up. To destroy them, she has to become one of them. I recommend The Renegades by Marissa Meyer to anyone who has read any of her other books or anyone who enjoys science fiction and superhero stories. This book is impossible to put down and will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about superheroes.

In the book SPARE AND FOUND PARTS by the new author Sarah Maria Griffin, it tells the story of how Nell is coping with everyone knowing her as the daughter of the famous Dr. Crane.

Then one day she finds a hand on a beach and it sparks a new idea. What if she could build a whole person from just spare and found parts? This is a completely new novel that has many secrets and interesting mechanics in it. If you love engineering, dystopian worlds, or ingenious character personalities, this book might be right for you!

    Do you like a book that is a page turner or really thrilling? Then you should read Dream Fall by Amy Plum. There are seven teenagers who have a condition where they can’t sleep, so they are the first to try a test that is going to help them. Then an earthquake happens right when they’re asleep in the test. What they don’t know is that their lives are going to change. Amy Plum has written a story that will make you never want to stop reading this book. It really felt like I was in the book. I could picture everything that was happening. If you want to find out more, you should read Dream Fall.

    Are you interested in action books like Maze Runner or Alex Rider? Then you’ll like the book SYLO by D.J Machale. My first choice wasn’t to read the book, but after I read SYLO I instantly wanted to read the second one in the series. They are called SYLO, a secret branch of the U.S Navy. SYLO’s commander, captain Granger, informs Pemberwick Island that there is a lethal virus going around and no can the leave the island without being shot! Now they are cut off from the rest of the world. The main character, Tucker, thinks that there is more to SYLO’s story. Tucker was standing on the sidelines when the high school running back, Marty Wiggins, dropped dead without a warning. Later that night Tucker goes for a ride on his bike and sees a floating musical aircraft explode through the night sky on the ocean. To find out if the islanders escape or not you’ll have to read the book. This book is very intense and exciting. I personally think it is a great book for people to read in all grades because of potential and intensity!

    If you like action and mystery, you’ll like The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. In this book a group of boys and girls have a disease called the flare, and there is supposedly a cure at the safe haven but they have to cross a long, dry and hot area called the Scorch to reach it. Thomas, the main character, and his friends set out to do this, but they are not sure if there is actually even a cure for them. During the last part of the book, Thomas finds himself in a room with no doors or windows and doesn’t know how he got there or how to get out. James Dashner has written a story that will make you want to figure out what happens next and make you want to read more. It will make you think about the next important thing coming up. My opinion of this book is that it is very well written and that if there is something you don’t understand it explains it pretty well. I recommend this book to people who like some mystery and action. If you find this writing interesting, I think you’ll like the Scorch Trials.

    Do you like books based on the future with cyborgs, mutant aliens and forbidden love? If so, then you should read Scarlet, the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series, written by Marissa Meyer. This book has a lot of action and a lot of problems. One of the main problems in the book is that an alien fugitive named Cinder is on the loose on Earth, and her queen, Queen Levana of Luna, keeps on sending mutant creatures to Earth to tear it apart until the fugitive is found. While on the run, Cinder finds out she is actually the rightful ruler of Luna. Another problem is a main character named Scarlet is in love with one of the mutant creatures because he is kind, unlike the rest, but even though he is kind, it is still difficult because he is controlled by the queen’s head thaumaturges, so he could snap and hurt her very easily. Towards the end of the book Cinder meets Scarlet and the mutant creature, and he helps Cinder realize that she needs to eventually step up and be queen. As you can see there are many reasons to read this book. I encourage you to read it because you feel like you’re in the story going through all the struggles these lovable characters are going through, like when Cinder realizes how important she really is and when Scarlet and the mutant kiss for the first time. I really hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

    Do you like action packed books? Well, if you do you should read the book SYLO by D.J.Machale. There are two problems in this this book. The first problem is that a group named SYLO has come to Pemberwick Island, keeping everyone on the island and if the people try to leave they will be blown to smithereens. The next problem is that on the mainland there are big flying machines that shoot a ray that destroys something without leaving a trace of it, and they also shoot missiles. Those flying machines are trying to destroy Pemberwick Island and its inhabitants. This book will keep you wondering who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. I really don’t like reading, to tell the truth, but this was a book that made me want to keep reading it. I think this book is more for 4th grade and up because of the violence. If you love SYLO as much as I did, you can check out book two of the series, STORM.

    As of late, I’ve been on an extreme reading kick and (knock on wood) I hope that doesn’t end soon. I’ve just been devouring novels like my life depends on it, and Cress by Marissa Meyer was no different as the 550 page novel was read just as quickly and easily as a 200 page book. Cress is the third book in the Lunar Chronicles quartet following Linh Cinder, a cyborg mechanic turned wanted criminal from New Beijing, Carswell Thorne, a fugitive who’s been disobeying the rules since he was born, and Scarlet and Wolf, a hotheaded French 18 year old who’s the series’ counterpart to Little Red Riding Hood and her love interest who was a former Lunar warrior. The four all have one common goal, prevent the power hungry leader of the Lunars, Queen Levana, from marrying the young Emperor of New Beijing, Emperor Kaito, and causing endless pain and suffering on Earth. Under Levana’s control works a miserable 16 year old girl named Cress who is forced to hack for the Queen’s assistant in order to proceed in forcing the Earthen leaders to relinquish power over to her. In a desperate attempt for escape from her Satellite prison of seven years, Cress enlists the help of the four formerly mentioned space fugitives, bringing a lot more danger and adventure on the path to starting an inevitable war between Earth and Luna. Cress was a thrilling read that surpassed the high standards Cinder held making any reader not wanting to put the book down as the thrill of the science fiction, romance, and political downfall, coming in at a strong 4.9/5 stars. Recommended for those with a love for Sailor Moon, Divergent, Harry Potter, The Land of Stories, and/or The School for Good and Evil, Cress was a stunning novel that was nearly impossible to put down.

    I just recently read a book called Pendragon: The Merchant of Death. It’s a great book that is about a teenager named Bobby Pendragon. Bobby is about to go to a Championship basketball game but his Uncle Press convinces him to go with him to an abandoned subway. Once he gets there a man named Saint Dane attacks him and his uncle. So his uncle stays behind and tells Bobby to run on the subway tracks to a door with a star on it. Inside is a portal like thing that is called a flume. Once he goes through it he finds out that that flume takes him through time and space. He finds out every place/time is called a territory. Saint Dane is trying to turn every territory a chaotic place. That is a great book I just read and think that others should read.

    For the past year or so, I haven’t been able to find many books that I was so fully immersed in. Only three or so books can come to mind that I’ve been such in absolute love with this school year, so much that I was forced to put them down, that was until Cinder by Marissa Meyer came along. My sister, mom, and good friends had been recommending me this book for quite sometime, and they had a right to be recommending it. Cinder is a retelling of Cinderella but it certainly doesn’t feel that way but in the best way. Cinder is a sixteen year old mechanic who lives with her dreadful stepmother Adri, equally dreadful older stepsister Pearl, kind hearted younger stepsister Peony, and her hysterical droid IKO. Cinder is a mechanic who lives in futuristic New Beijing which is under the rule of the ill Emperor Rikan and his son, Prince Kai who all the girls fawn over in one way or another. There is something peculiar about Cinder- she’s a cyborg. Before you go “Ew cyborgs, this suddenly got so much more boring and unattractive,” being a cyborg in this time is like having prosthetics except it’s more like having an actual hand but it’s just metal, so Cinder is still technically human but her metal parts make her an outcast from society to those who know about her metal parts.The emperor is ill with a lethal disease in which there is no cure for yet but is very contagious as seen with the number of people in quarantine who are dying from this disease. One day, Prince Kai comes to Cinder’s mechanic booth in disguise so she can fix an old important droid which can under no means necessary be replaced with a new droid. Origins, identities, romance, and the dark side of politics are all uncovered in this thrilling action, science fiction novel which is the start of a four book series titled The Lunar Chronicles. Meyer takes a stunning spin on an old tale and breathes in new life to it for her debut novel. This would be recommended to Sailor Moon fans and those who want an empowering read that keeps you on the edge of your seat for the whole ride. A solid 4.7 out of 5 stars, this is one crazy joy ride you’ll want to get on.

    A great book that I think everyone should read is Life as we Knew it by Susan Pfeffer. It is beautifully written making a quick read. It is written as a diary told to be kept by the main character’s brother. The story is about a girl who’s life changes when an asteroid hits the moon knocking it out of orbit and causing lots of natural disasters. There is food shortage and no power. Money is scarce and schools are all closed. Her family’s only hope is that everything is back to normal. All though the author leaves you hanging off the edge of a cliff at the end, you can’t help your self from reading it again in hope that you forgot something. I hope someone can pick this book up and love just as much as I did.

    I’m Here to talk about Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. It’s a great read and let me tell you what it is about: So a paleontologist (Mr.Grant) and his Student (Miss Sattler) get talked to Jon Hammond to go to a Biological Park; “Jurassic Park” Full of Dinosaurs, But this power will Backfire…

  13. Nelson K says:

    So this quarter I read the book I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. Its about nine aliens that look exactly like us humans but have extraordinary powers like enhanced strength, running speed, and jumping ability. They are from the planet Lorien. Sadly their planet was invaded by mogadorians, an evil race of aliens that can disguise themselves as humans. The nine lorien are members of a society called the guard. They are only teenagers so they have been assigned a person each to guide them and help them train to use their powers.
    The main character is a teenage member of the guard named John Smith. Him and his guardian Henri move to Paradise Ohio to lay low so the mogodorians don’t find them. Each member is assigned a number from 1 to nine. They can only be killed in order unless their all grouped together. That’s why as soon as their ship landed on Earth they all had to separate. John settles in and makes a friend named Sam. Sam’s dad had gone missing one night and Sam thinks that aliens abducted him. John also meets a boy named Mark and let me just say that they don’t get along very well. John and the other members have to eventually face their biggest fears and fight for the fate of both Lorien and Earth. The reason why I picked up this book is because it was recommended to me. On a scale of one to ten I would rate this book a straight up ten. There are around 5 books in the series and Im currently on the third one which is called The Rise of Nine. Either a boy or girl could read this but It has some mild language and some gore. This book is like syfy and fiction. There is already a movie adaptation of the first book and it is amazing.

    My Quarter 2 read is “The Martian”. Its a book about an astronaut who was on of the first humans to walk on Mars. But now he may be the first person to die there. After an emergency evacuation the crew thought he was dead. So now he must make the most hostile environment known to man livable and wait for rescue.I give it 5 stars and an A+ grade.I Recommend this book to people who have parents that don’t mind them reading a bunch of swears and 6th and 7th graders.

  15. Darth Vader says:

    I recommend “Battle Cruiser” unfortunately I do not remember who this is by so please reply to this if you would like me to look into it. It is gripping science fiction book (that is not available at the school library) set in the future, the main character is a bit rebellious but always ends up making the right decision. (Note: this book is not for everyone it is a challenge to read as it was written for teens.) I like this book because it is a high action page turner with and bit of mystery.

    If you like mind reading and action that gets you sucked in then read The Ability by M.M. Vaughan!

    “How To Build A Robot Army” is a great book if you love robots and engineering.
