Your Review: I like that its like a tornado and you never know whats going to happen next in the story even if you think you do.I didn’t like that some people turned on their friends in the end and some died.My favorite charter would be Scarlet Since she has more since.This book would be amazing movie if it could one it may be a little out of this time. I think people who like fairy tales, trouble,and a hint of romance.Would really enjoy the book. I would give this book to people who seemed bored or just looked like they had nothing better to do.People who are older than me are well should like the book more than me. Unless they like the same stuff to read every day without any Pop in the story! Overall try this book out for fun ! 🙂

Four: A Divergent Collection

Book Review by: Sarah Beth

Book by: Veronica Roth
Book Length: 304 pages

Story Summary: The book Four is told from the perspective of a man named Tobias Eaton. He lives in Abnegation, one of five factions. The factions all represent a certain type of personality trait. The factions are Abnegation (selfless), Amity (kind), Erudite (intelligent), Candor (honest), and Dauntless (brave). Tobias is what the people call Divergent. It is a specific breed of people who are outlawed in that city. He has to hide his Divergent powers while also finding out how to get away from his abusive father Marcus, who is the leader of Abnegation. When he finds out that he is divergent, he decides to go to Dauntless, where they fight, compete, and get tested. Tobias decides this would be the perfect place for him to get away from his father, hide away from people who could find out his divergence, and change his identity. He decided that his new name should be Four. In this book, you will go through Four’s story and get to the soft part behind his tough outer shell, and find out why he really moved away from his father, and why he changed his name.

Your Review: I loved reading this book! It was fun to go through Four’s journey and find out all of the secrets that he was hiding in the first three books. My favorite about the book was seeing the book from his perspective when he was with Tris and all of the characters that were in Divergent. I don’t think I had a favorite character in this book because you never really knew who was good and who was bad. I recommend this book because I thought it was cool how we got to see how small and vulnerable Tobias was before he got to Dauntless. I think my fellow classmates should read this book after they read the series so it doesn’t leave any spoilers and you get to find out the whole story first.

NewsPrints

Book Review by: Thomas Elliot

Book by: Ru Xu
Book Length: 210 pages

Story Summary: The story follows Blue a young news boy from a different time. There is only one problem Blue is actually girl, and very few know her secret. She lives in the Mayors orphanage for young boys. The boys help deliver newspapers for the Bugle newspaper. Her life begins to change when she takes up the roll of Jack’s (an inventor with very few working inventions) apprentice.

Your Review: I liked the aspect of the science fiction in the story, while also reminding me of Newsies an awesome musical. It is written as a graphic novel, which I personally enjoy. The story left me wanting more which I hate because there is not a new book out yet. I think this would be an awesome movie because you can see how the characters develop in the book, I can see it being portrayed on the big screen very well. I don’t know who should play Blue but, Joey Grace-fa should be Jack. I think any fan of the Amulet series will love NewsPrints.

Divergent

Book Review by: Sarah Beth

Book by: Veronica Roth
Book Length: 487 pages pages

Story Summary: The main characters name is Beatrice Prior. She has a brother named Caleb and a mother and father. She lives in a faction called Abnegation and they are known for being selfless and always putting themselves last. The five factions are Abnegation (the selfless), Erudite (the intelligent), Dauntless (the brave), Candor
(the honest), and Amity (the peaceful). Beatrice feels like she doesn’t fit in with the Abnegation because she is to selfish, but if she leaves she will look like a traitor to her family. Will Beatrice stay with her family and be an outsider? Or will she leave fit in but be a traitor?

Your Review: I loved this book because it goes through the life and perspective of Beatrice Prior. I liked all of her adventures and obstacles she faces as she grows up. I didn’t like all of the violence that happens and the fact that the their problems are never really resolved. My favorite character is Four. He is a secretive person who won’t answer questions and has a very damaged past. It is already a movie and is a series. I think that middle schoolers would love this book. My peers should choose this as their next book.

The Hunger Games

Book Review by: Maggie

Book by: Suzanne Collins
Book Length: 374 pages

Story Summary: The Capitol is a cruel and harsh place. They keep the districts in order by forcing them all to send one girl and one boy between the ages of twelve and eighteen to be apart of the annual Hunger Games. If you got picked for the Hunger Games then you will be put into an arena where you would have to fight on live TV. The arena is controlled by the oddly dressed people at the Capitol. They will do anything to determine a winner!

Your Review: I loved this book! My favorite part about this book is that it never stops. I do not like to read unless I find the perfect book that gives very good details. The Hunger Games was the perfect book for me. It also is a series which is a bonus. I would recommend this book because it keeps going, like I said.
