Girl, 15, Charming But Insane, by Sue Limb

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.

Breathe My Name by R. A. Nelson reviewed by Natalie

Breathe My NameThis book is a great one. I heard about it on a review website for teen books, and I never thought much of it until I saw it at the library once. I picked it up and was amazed by the first page alone. As I read on I realized that the main charactor, Frances, was very realistic, and R. A. Nelson’s writing is vivid and beautiful. The ending was the best I’ve ever read, and the entire book was flawless. This book was so amazing it made me realize I want to be an author. I’ve recomended this to all of my friends, and I’m writing this so I can reccomend it to you. I hope it changes your life like it changed mine.

The Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Shepard (and more comments about the Twilight series) by Haley

These books are AMAZING! When i first saw the cover, I didn’t think the book looked that interesting— but as I read on, I was instantly hooked! In about two weeks, I read all five books. The story line captured me from the very beginning and I was never bored. I recommended this series to all of my friends and they loved it. Even some guys decided they wanted to read it! If you love mystery and comedy, then you should read this series.

[About the Twilight Series, by Stephenie Meyer] Okay, so maybe the books are interesting and are understandable. And maybe the characters are realistic (to an extent) and have kind-of-realistic problems. BUT CAN WE PLEASE MOVE ON? I mean they’re fun to read for a little while, but this world-wide obsession is driving me insane. I like variety. I enjoy reading different types of books, and I never stick with just one genre for more than a month. I want to expand my knowledge, and I can’t do this if I just read Twilight all of the time. I am just asking for SOME of you to listen to me. In two years, you’re gonna wish you hadn’t wasted all of your time with these books. They’re fun to read once, but I really wish that other teens like me could start reading books that really are worth it. Some of you probably think that I’m just trying to get attention because I’m saying I don’t like Twilight, but I’m just telling the truth. Please just try to read another book— you’ll thank me later!

The Choice, by Nicholas Sparks, Reviewed by Haley

The Choice
This kind of book is the kind of book I want to read. I mean, Twilight’s interesting for like two seconds, but can we please move on? Nicholas Sparks really portrays the good things in life, and that we should never take anything for granted. I’m tired of everyone obsessing over Twilight (sorry, guys) and I think that we should get back to reading books like The Choice, where I stay up all night reading and end up satisfied, and there’s always some kind of lesson. This book is a good book for teens, and I strongly recommend you read it. I loved it, and I hope you do to.
