The selection / by Cass, Kiera,

Publication: London : HarperCollins Children's, 2012 . 327 p. ; 18 cm. Date: 2012

This book was totally cool; a bit predictable but wasn't about vamps or werewolves at least. The main character was tough and somewhat honouralbe. The book is easy to read and understand. Anita Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

I can see why Ronald Hugh Morrieson was described as 'our most precious; writer - he can create believable, likable characters and a fast-moving story. It's not that hard to get into and it's definitely worth reading. Sophie Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

Crocodile tears / by Horowitz, Anthony,

Publication: London : Walker, 2009 . 425 pages ; 20 cm. Date: 2009

This book is a must have for any one who is into none stop, mindblowing adventures that will make you leap out of you'r seat and make you want to keep reading right until the very end. This book is about a teenage spy that haves to give everything that he possibly can to survive, you never know where life might take you, especially if you'r Alex Rider. The fun never stops, so I highly recomend that you read the other books in the series and see if you like them as much as I do. My favourite by far would have to be Crocodile Tears.

Divergent / Teenage/Secondary by Roth, Veronica,

love love love this book, (; highly recommend if you love dystopian novel's like I do (HUNGER GAMES, HUNGER GAMES,) people have been saying this book is better than hunger games. but i'm gonna set that straight, ummm people it's really good, but it's on the same level as hunger games, or maybe a tiny bit lower. BUT ITS MOST NOT LIKELY BETTER THAN HUNGER GAMES. LOL. well that's my opinion

The weed that strings the hangman's bag / by Bradley, C. Alan,

Publication: London : Orion, 2011 . 344, 14 p. ; 20 cm. Date: 2011

I am really enjoying this series by Alan Bradley. Great murder mysteries in that English village style but such a feisty protagonist he has crafted in the heroine Flavia du Luce. A young girl with a passion for chemistry and poisons who gets around the country side on an old bike called Gladys. family relationships are a key to the background plus her nosiness and attention to details and knowledge of her world. Flavia loves to be one step ahead of the local police which gets her into dark places at times. I look forward to new titles.

The astonishing thing / by Ward, Sandi,

Publication: . 265 pages ; 21 cm.

I was really surprised by how well this book was written. It deals with difficult family relationships and mental illness in a unique way. Through the eyes and thoughts of Boo (a cat) we gradually learn about the family.Well worth a read and I hope the author Sandi Ward writes more books.

Perennials / by Cantrell, Julie,

Publication: . 355 pages ; 22 cm.
