Teen Book review - Slated by Teri Terry

Danielle (grade 9) gives the book Slated by Teri Terry

Genre: Science Fiction
Summary: Kyla was slated and her memories were erased.  Everything is new to her but she still has nightmares that seem true...almost like memories.  She just has to keep looking to find out who she really is.

Danielle would recommend this book because it was engrossing and wasn't a cliche' teenage science-fiction novel.

Book Review! A Must Read!

My Heart and Other Black HolesMy Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really like this book. I would recommend this to anyone, but especially teens suffering from depression or who may be facing tough times & need a glimmer of hope. The author , in my opinion, does a good job conveying the emotional upheaval associated with depression and guilt. I also liked that the characters weren't necessarily "cured" of their affliction because that would be unrealistic. Very good and fast read.

Richard gives this book:

Summary: A teenager named Tom gets an iPhone thrown at his head and pieces of the phone get into his brain allowing him to access people's technology and shock.  He uses his newfound abilities to seek revenge on those that attacked him and his friend Lucy.

Why I would recommend this book (or not): I would recommend this book because the whole book is very suspenseful and it doesn't drag on in the beginning.

Where She Went by Gayle Foreman

Where She Went (If I Stay, #2)Where She Went by Gayle Forman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I liked If I Stay, but I absolutely loved Where She Went. It is unusual for me to like a sequel better than the first, but it happened with this book which captivated me until the very end.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

This is the conclusion to Mia and Adam’s story and told from Adam's point of view. The story picks up three years after Mia wakes from a coma where she had been deciding whether to stay or let herself die.

This is a truly poignant and moving story about love lost and found. It makes you both want to read furiously to the end AND savor each and every line written.

I loved the lyrics of songs interspersed throughout the story. They lent themselves to the telling of the story in a unique way and added another dimension to the telling.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed If I stay. You are guaranteed to love this one even more!! This romance is absolutely wonderful and magical.
