Saving Juliet Saving Juliet

Crunch Crunch
by Leslie Connor
I think this book was really good. It was funny and had some realistic elements, but also some fictional parts. It was about these kids who were home alone due to a gas shortage in the country.

Crossed Crossed
by Ally Condie
You won’t be able to put this amazing sequel to Matched down after you just read one page. Cassia and Ky’s love-twisting story is so romantic and has suspense on every page. This phenomenal page-turner will have you reading for hours!

Put Your Best Foot Forward Put Your Best Foot Forward: A Young Dancer’s Guide to Life
by Suki Schorer
I found this book very interesting and helpful for being a young ballerina. Do not read if you do not take ballet, it would be very confusing.

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank is the personal diary of Anne, who grew into adulthood while in hiding from the Nazis in the attic of a work building. It takes you day to day in her life and shows a great example of the Nazi’s oppression against the Jews during WWII.
