Fateful Teen Book Fateful

2 stars.

Describe the book: It's about werewolves on the Titanic. Literally. It is the typical love story between human and supernatural. Werewolf:" you can't love me, I'm a monster. Please, stay away!!" Girl:"no. I have only known you a day but I already love you to much" Werewolf:" I give in. I promise I will love you forever even though I barely know you!! "

What did you think: I think the idea was creative, but the story was cliche.

Who would you recommend it to: Anyone who likes sappy werewolf stories.

Four: A Divergent Collection Teen Book Four: A Divergent Collection

4 stars.

Describe the book: His aptitude test results put him in Abnegation. But there was no way he could stay there. Not with his father. But transferring to Dauntless may not be as easy as he thinks either. Even though he has the least number of fears in Dauntless history, 4, hence the nickname, Dauntless life isn't always as easy look like it does from the outside.

What did you think: Four, aka Tobias Eaton, is one of my favorite characters of all time. I've had this book pre-ordered on Amazon for months! I'm glad Veronica Roth wrote this book, especially since she originally started writing Divergent from Tobias' point of view. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Tobias' life before Divergent takes place, and into it too.

Who would you recommend it to: Teens who've read the Divergent Series
