Deadly Little Lies is a fantastic book filled with surprise. This story is about a girl named Camelia who might have caught psychometry from her ex-boyfriend, but their powers have caused some danger and pranking in their small little town. Something is happening in Camelia’s life that is causing twice the torture, but who could it be? I suppose you’ll have to read the book to find the answer.

Warlock by Michael Scott
It was really good, but it was confusing and has a lot of different things going on. It has good plots, and I like that type of book. I wouldn’t change much except that it should have been simpler.

Vampire Breath by R. L. Stine
Vampire Breath had a lot of good things like excitement, fighting, and vampires. I’m a big fan of Goosebumps. Since it’s a horror book I like to read it late at night. If I were to rate this I would rate it four out of five. I highly recommend this book for 7-12.

Storm by Brigid Kemmerer
Great book that has action with paranormal abilities, love triangle, family feuds, and amazing twists you don’t see coming not allowing you to put it down. A true must read.

Wildefire by Karsten Knight
Knight’s written masterpiece is a full package of reality, horror, and adventure. The plot tells us of how a struggling teenager, Wilde, even though she tries to find acceptance and evade the tragic death caused by her sister’s tantrum, she couldn’t escape her sister herself, or her fate. Wiled meets five others who had been summoned as gods and goddesses to fight a growing terror. I love the way she strived to move forward and find, among her new family, love, strength, and within herself, acceptance.

Uncivil Acts by Carolyn Keene
Nancy Drew has always been a fantastic character to me and this time she really did it. I really liked how the people in her town all get involved in the Civil War reenactment. It was very interesting to see that the pain of the Civil War still lives on. And how scary it was…ooh! I could hardly put it down! I would really recommend it to all Nancy Drew loving teens.

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
Catching Jordan is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I will be a freshman in high school this year and this book has given me a lot of pointers on family, friends, and…boys. This is a very relatable book for any teenage girl. Read it if you get the chance. You won’t regret it.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
I think this book is perfect for anyone. For people who like to hear about adventures or emotional stories I’d highly recommend this book. It’s about a person whose life gets worse and worse and eventually she loses her brother to the darkness, yet finds the strength to get him back. I think this is a wonderful story for all ages.

The Outcasts by John Flannagan
The Outcasts is about an inventive boy living on an island full of barbarians. His father was a hero and a great fighter, and dies in a tragic accident. And this is the story of the creative boy’s teenage years.
The boy’s name is Hal and he and his friends are to be put through Brotherband training. They are competing against all the biggest, most popular boys on the island. I won’t tell you any more because you have to read it.
I liked this book because John Flannagan has such a good sense of plot, and he gives intricate cliffhangers that make you want to keep reading! If you haven’t already read this book or the Ranger’s Apprentice series, you need to read it now! If you have gree time that you wan to spend reading then read this book. It is awesome.
