Teen Recommends

House of Night series

 

House of Night series by P. C. Cast & Kristen Cast

This is one of the best book series ever if you love fairytale and love storys! — Margaret

  Twilight

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Twilight is a spell-binding story made up of miraculous characters and an intriguing outlook on fantasized creatures. I would recommend this book to just about any child over the age of ten. Make sure you have your parent’s permission before you set out into Stephanie’s amazing realm, some of this material is not suitable for immature children. When you are done with the first book, there are also many others in the series and I reccommend all of the others just as strongly, sincerely sam.

  

Plaguemaker

Plaguemaker by Tim Downs
The plague maker is simply wonderful. It talks about the efforts to stop and prevent the impending bio-terroristic epidemic of plague. All the while it really talks about the central theme of forgiveness and the power that it can hold. If I were to rate this book on a scale of 1-5, I would give this book 4 stars! — Theresa

  

Gregor and the Code of Claw

 Gregor and the Code of Claw by Suzanne Collins

Mariel of Redwall by Brian Jacques

I think it was a wonderfull adventure novel with tons of action and suspense. i really enjoyed reading it. — Alex

The Lost Hero, by Rick Riordan–Reviewed by Sarah

The Lost HeroThis book is the most amazing book i have read since the Percy Jackson series came out. I know that some people would consider this a child’s book. But no, this can’t be considered a children’s book. I was so hooked on this book I could not stop reading. I read it in 6 hours. 550 pages! Rick Riordan truly captures your imagination in this book. Can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out in November. Teens need to know how amazing Greek Mythology can be. Most teens want to have nothing to do with school. The Lost Hero will leave you wanting to know more about Greek Mythology and how it came about.
