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.

Evermore, by Alyson Noël, Reviewed by Nata

Evermore

I was absolutely captivated by this whimsical novel of love, family and life. After a car accident claims her whole family, sixteen year old Ever is gifted with psychic abilities, that she mistakes as a punishment. She can read other’s minds, tap into their auras, and see wandering souls. Her dead little sister, Riley visits her often. But, suddenly Ever’s world turns upside down, when Damen Auguste enrolls at Bay View High School. She feels a hint of faint recognition, and as she’s drawn into Damen’s too perfect world, she realizes it may not be as perfect as it seems. Ever is sucked into his world of secrets and intrigue. She then realizes, she’s fallen irrevocably in love with him….

I truly loved this novel, not one second did I bore, and I ate up the pages hungry for more. The novel portrays the struggles of being a teen while finding yourself and meeting the love of your life all in one. I think a lot of teens can relate to Ever’s thoughts of hopefulness and emptiness, but the gift of life was given to enjoy. Through it all, Ever manages to work through her obstacles and move on with her life. Read Evermore if you enjoy suspenseful, romantic and enticing novels.
The sequel to Evermore is New Moon, coming in july ’09.

Girl, 15, Charming But Insane
Girl, 15, Charming But Insane is the first of 4 books in the series about Jess Jordan, a 15 year old girl from England and her day to day life. She is constantly trying to lie her way out of things until the lies become too much to keep straight. This book is perfect for anyone looking for a good laugh. I found my self literally “lol” while I read this. It is a fun story full of characters to whom I can realate. I know others who have read this book as well and love it, too.
