Teen Review: “My Life Next Door” by Huntley Fitzpatrick

Posted in book review with tags , on May 16, 2015 by centraltllc1

Samantha’s mother has always disapproved of their next door neighbors, the Garretts. They are too messy, loud, unreserved, and there are just too many of them. But, Samantha has spent years perched on her roof outside her window watching the Garretts and their entirely different lifestyle from her own. That is until Jase, number three out of eight who is Sam’s age, climbs up next to her. After so many years of not talking to the Garretts, Sam is quickly swept into their lives. They are warm and welcoming, and Samantha grows increasingly fond of them all, but especially Jase. Their relationship blooms, but Sam keeps it hidden from her mother, who is kept busy and out of the way, campaigning for senator. All seems to be going as well as it could be if not better until tragedy strikes and Samantha is faced with a seemingly impossible choice. This book was an enjoyable read and a lovely romance, despite hitting a rough patch, that ended nicely.

Teen Review: “The Clockwork Scarab” by Colleen Gleason

Posted in book review, teen volunteer with tags , , , , on May 9, 2015 by centraltllc1

 If you are a Sherlock or Dracula fan, this book should appeal to you. It is written from the perspective of Evaline Stoker, sister of Bram Stoker, Dracula’s author, and Mina Holmes, niece of Sherlock Holmes. Evaline, coming from a family of vampire hunters, and Mina, descending from brilliant people, are recruited by a member of the British royal family to look into the mysterious deaths and kidnappings of society girls. All of the girls have been found with clockwork scarabs in their possession. This leads the two young detectives into a world of sinister Egyptian clubs and even the impossible time travel. This books was a fun read that brought in well-known characters but made the story female empowering.

Parman Teen Review: “Four: A Divergent Collection” by Veronica Roth

four
This novel, an addition to my favorite series by Veronica Roth, offers an insightful point of view: that of Four, or Tobias Eaton – the mentor, friend, boyfriend, and counterpart of our protagonist, Beatrice “Tris” Prior. I enjoyed this collection because it clarifies background information on Four that helps the reader understand the behavior and mentality the submissive child that eventually found his escape in another faction, which helped him develop into a strong man. It also lets us peek into Four’s head, and his thoughts differ from that of Tris’s and gives the reader the other side of the story. Four: A Divergent Collection is an excellent wrap-up for the Divergent series, but I would only recommend reading it after you finish the series.

Teen Review: “Forever” by Maggie Stiefvater

Posted in book review, teen volunteer with tags , , , on May 2, 2015 by centraltllc1

With Grace now changing back and forth between being a wolf and a human, Sam and Grace are separated yet again. Sam is getting used to living with Cole, who is putting his life in serious risk by trying to find a cure. But when the body of a girl is found in the woods, things get a whole  lot worse. With Grace and Olivia technically missing and this dead girl found in the woods, people are starting to turn their attention to Sam. Yes, they can see that wolves killed the girl, but how did she get there in the first place? Also, this death has spurred the wolf hunt again, and this time, there is enough cause to permanently eliminate the pack from Mercy Falls altogether. This means either the entire pack has to be cured or someone must lead them to some new woods far away from the hunt. This book was high tension, keeping me worried until the end.
