Virals by Kathy Reichs
This book is perfect for those who like a little mystery thrown into some science. This book takes you on a ride you always wished you could go on! For those who like supernatural powers combined with genetics, you will love it. Better than Maximum Ride!

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Inkheart is like the movie Inception–a book inside a book. The main character’s (Meggie) father can read objects out of books, and he reads evil villians out and his wife in. Throughout the book Meggie and her father try and get their mother back, while battling the villian Capricorn’s men, with the help of the fire-eater and Farid. Definitely a must read off the shelf.

Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
This book was a very well-written book about two kids that have a crush on each other, but at opposite times in their lives. Eventually, they both like each other in the end. Flipped was a very heart-warming story and I like the book a lot.

Matched by Ally Condie
Matched was a very good book. It was set in the future. The society’s high ranking officials pretty much plan your life. When you die, where you work, who you love, and even what you eat! Cassia trusts these decisions, but gets worried when she’s matched with two people: Xander and Ky. Who will she choose?

Would I Lie to You by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Would I Lie to You is the 10th book in the Gossip Girl series.
I think this book is very good. It has romance, action, and tons of drama. I like how each chapter is from a different character’s point of view. I love this book and would recommend it to girls who like to gossip.

Letters from Camp by Kate Klise
This was a very fun, interesting read! The whole book was written in the form of letters. The mystery was about 6 kids (with 2 kids per family) who were sent to Camp Happy Harmony to try to get along with their siblings, only to find that the owners are a bunch of criminals! I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
