 MisterMonday Mister Monday by Garth Nix

Arthur Penhaligon was a normal kid until one Monday when he was given a strange key.  The key helped him breath because he had asthma and the key led him to a place called the House.  In the House, Arthur’s adventure takes off with his friend Suzy.  I would recommend this book and it’s series to anyone.

 Soul-surfer-dvd Soul Surfer

Soul Surfer, the movie, was a really good. It was a true movie based on a girl who lost one of her arms while surfing. She was so determined to continue even with one arm and she did it. It was really good but sad because a shark bit her and made her arm bleed.  She has continued to surf even without an arm in competitions.

 Switched Switched by Jessica Wollman

This was a very good book.  It was about a poor girl who wanted to go to college (but didn’t have the money) meeting a rich girl who didn’t like school.  They switched places to have what they each wanted.

Exodus   Exodus by Julie Bertagna

Exodus is the story of what life could be like in the future.  The icecaps melted and most of the world was flooded.  This makes you wonder whether we are on the brink of a world like that.  It’s a very good story and is scary to think that we may have to deal with this in the future.

Forest of Hands and Teeth    The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Mary lived all her life in feat of the Forest of Hands and Teeth behind the fence that protected her from it.  Now she must leave the security of the fence and search for a new life where she could escape the Unconsecrated.   The Forest of Hands and Teeth is a story of a dark and scary world where the dead walk alive, but also a place where hope can be found.  It is a book that is hard to put down, filled with action, love, and hope.

 AndThenThere And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

I think And Then There Were None was a great book, even though I don’t read mystery books that often.  And I love the twist at the end of the book.

 TeashopGirls The Teashop Girls by Laura Schaefer

The Teashop Girls is a great book about Annie, Genna, and Zoe (the Teashop Girls) and how they have different lives.  But when the  Steeping Leaf is about to go out of business, they work together and do everything they can to save it–even if it means fighting with your best friend.

 LostHero The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

This has to be one of the best books ever.  I loved all the action, adventure, and suspense put into it.  At times I felt like I was in the story.  The characters were awesome.  They had so much personality, I wished they were real.  I can’t wait until the next book. I loved it!

KikiStrike  Kiki Strike and the Shadow City by Kirsten Miller

Kiki Strike is a fascinating book about a behind-kicking super-spy finding an underground city in Manhattan.  The action and comedy in it was so amazing.  I could not take my eyes off of it!  From skeletons to princesses, this book has it all.  I advise any teens from 10 years to 15 years to read this book.  It is mind blowing!
