How to speak dolphin

How to Speak Dolphin by Ginny Rorby

This book was very touching and was sad too. The book is about a boy who has autism, but his mom died when he was young and he now lives with his older sister, Lily, and his step-dad. His step-dad thinks he doesn't have autism, so he doesn't try to help him. But Adam has a special bond with dolphins, that helps him with his autism.— Review by Husky796

Return to the Isle of the Lost

Return to the Isle of the Lost by Melissa De la Cruz

Descendants Series, Book 2

This was a really good book! It had lots of adventure and action in it!!!— Review by Husky796

The jewel

The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Summary: This book was about a world where women with specific genetic abnormalities are forced to bear the children of royals because their genetics make their children die out due to complications that occur. This book was about a girl named Violet. My Review: I'm not sure if I like this book. The story was the same iconic teen fighting the ruling government because of the injustices that are happening. To be honest I'm bored of those kinds of books so I wasn't a fan of this one either..... But I have to admit the plot itself was actually pretty interesting, the callous royal women showcased perfectly, and the helplessness of the surrogates who have to bear the children of other women and are then cast aside. And although I am a big fan of romances, I didn't particularly like Violet and Ash together. There wasn't a lot of chemistry and I think Violet was just desperate for someone's love. I would recommend this book to the people who like reading about teens fighting against the ruling government, and I would also urge these teens to protest the injustices happening right now in our world. 5/10.— Review by MidnightLily

Ask my mood ring how I feel

Ask My Mood Ring How I Feel by Diana Lopez

Erica Montenegro is having problems expressing her feelings. Sometimes she doesn't even know how she feels. She buys a mood ring and goes through a flurry with her emotions. What is it called when you're happy, sad, mad, and in love at the same time?— Review by Umaizing_Ali

A different blue

A Different Blue by Amy Harmon

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Keep in mind that it is suited to a more mature audience and should be read with discretion. The plot was exciting and the love story kept me swooning at every turn of the page.— Review by Rachel H.

Carry on

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Carry On was a humorous book with a mysterious spin. The characters were fitting with the thematics as well as the plot line. The constant change of pace in this enchanting story kept the reader on the edge of their seat.— Review by Rachel H.

Title

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games Series, Book 1

Long ago, there was a war between the Capitol (the city that rules Panem) and the twelve districts. The Capitol won, but as punishment for the rebellion, they created the Hunger Games, set on controlling and taunting the Districts to demonstrate their power over them. One boy and one girl are chosen from each District, and they must try to survive in a landscape-based arena while trying to kill off all the other competitors. When Katniss Everdeen's sister gets chosen for the Games, Katniss volunteers herself instead. Now she must survive the Games, and, with dread, kill all the other players.— Review by literary-licorice

Graduation Day

Graduation Day by Joelle Charbonneau

Cia has found out the big secret. Now the president wants her to kill everyone, anyone on her list. But now a search has begun for any rebel students. No one is allowed out. Will Cia's plan backfire? I was a little disappointing at the end and it didn't end as I hoped it would, but still a total MUST-READ this summer — Review by BookLover74


Legend

Legend by Marie Lu

Legend Series, Book 1

This book kept me all night. Day is a BIG time wanted criminal from the poorer side of the Republic. June is the sibling of a soldier called Metias. They have no reason to meet. But when Day accidentally kills Metias, June swears to find Day and bring him in. But when June finds something, she has reason to believe that someone else did murder Metias. — Review by BookLover74


The Biggest Poutine in the World

The Biggest Poutine in the World by Andrée Poulin

This book was awesome! But it was a very touching story. It was about a boy who was abandonned by his mother and stuck with his father (who is not interested in his own son at all) on his fifth birthday. So he decides to make the biggest poutine in the world!— Review by Somerset1
