The Elements is a book with 2-4 pages about every element known to the human race. It teaches you a lot of different fact about elements. Each 2-4 pages has 3-10 paragraphs, 7 on average. It goes from Hydrogen to Ununoctium.

The book named above was really funny and is creative, just like all of the other Big Nates. I enjoyed it a lot. This particular book was about Francis and Nate getting into a colossal fight over how Nate was so messy. So, Nate gets hypnotized to be neater, but it doesn’t work out too well.

The ListThe List by Siobhan Vivian

This was such a good book! It’s the start of the new school year when the list is put out–one pretty girl and one ugly girl in each grade–drama unfolds and friendships shatter. This book does show the reality of high school beauty pressures.

Black Swan reviewed by Amanda

I’m in love with the movie Black Swan (2010).  I strongly recommend this movie for those who love ballet, dancing, or ballet performances. I take ballet, and every time I watch this movie (which has been more than a few times) I become so motivated to dance. The choreography of this movie is amazing, as well as the story line. However, since this is a Rated R movie, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this movie to anyone under the age of 16, maybe 15 at the least. There are some sexual parts of this movie that in my opinion (and from watching it with immature friends), is only for mature audiences. I also did have to watch it 2 or 3 times to realize the hidden parts to the story-line and once I concentrated and watched the whole movie, everything tied in together and it made sense (which only made me love the film even more!). Natalie Portman is both an amazing actress and dancer, and if I had to rate this movie, I would give it a 5 out of 5 star rating.

Click here to find the movie Black Swan in the Library, and please note that this movie is rated R and not intended for teens under the age of 17 to watch without an adult present.

Beautiful Creatures reviewed by Paige

Beautiful Creatures

by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Hi, I’m Paige, and I just recently read the book Beautiful Creatures written by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. This book is about a boy named Ethan Wate. In the start of the book, he has a dream about a girl he has no clue who she is. This is strange seeing someone in a dream he doesn’t know because he lives in a small town in South Carolina. Eventually, a new girl moves to the town, Lena Duchannes. She happens to be the niece of the town creep and locked up. The girl is shunned by the school, so Ethan decides to befriend her. One day in class they bump into each other and the light above them breaks. Also, when Lena went to sharpen her pencil, the window next to her shattered. Ethan starts falling for her and realizes why Lena is so different and how they have a connection. Read Beautiful Creatures to find out why Lena Duchannes is different from EVERY other girl Ethan has ever known.
