4 stars.

Describe the book: Blythe is all torn up after she finds out that her family is moving to Ash Grove. First of all, Ash Grove is her school's (Meriton high) arch enemy! And second,an embarrassing picture of her leaked out at Ash Grove. And when she finally makes friends, she ruins everything by canceling the scavenger hunt!She finally regains her friends by saving it!

What did you think: This book was amazing! It really made me think a lot about showing my true self to others and that its okay to mess up. Also it teaches you the lesson of lying. My favorite parts were when Blythe finds out that Ms. Eulalie is still alive and when Blythe and Luke,a boy from ash grove,kiss in the dumpster! Even though it sounds cheesy,it was perfect!

Who would you recommend it to: I would recommend this to romance genre lovers!

Sharks and Boys Teen Book Sharks and Boys

3 stars.

Describe the book: Enid's life is far from perfect, and when her boyfriend Wick announces that they should take a "break" it's the last straw. She follows Wick and his guy friends to a wild party that ends up taking them to a boat. When that boat is sunk and they're left in a lifeboat dingy, the reality of the situation is worse than any nightmare.

What did you think: I really like reading stories of people getting lost and sea and having to survive, and this one was even more interesting for me because it features normal teenagers with no special knowledge of how to survive. I had to remind myself that I wasn't on the dingy with them while I was reading, I'd recommend keeping plenty of food and water handy.

Who would you recommend it to: Fans of survival and shipwreck stories.

Outer Dark book Outer Dark

3 stars.

Describe the book: In an unspecified time in history, a man and a woman wander alone through rural Appalachia. The man is searching for the woman, his sister. The woman in searching for her baby, stolen from her at birth by the man. All the while, a band of mysterious killers roam the same countryside, wreaking havoc. When their paths converge, tragedy is inevitable.

What did you think: Outer Dark feels like a bad dream. The plot is so subtle that most of the time you feel as though you too are wandering, dream-like, through a brutal and aimless story. But there is something about the protagonists that makes you curious, and holds you, spellbound, as this surreal and eerie novel slowly builds to a startling and disturbing climax.

Who would you recommend it to: Mature readers seeking a slow-paced, creepy story

- P.C. (Grade 11) from Edmonds Library

eBOOK OVERDRI
The Ghost and The Goth Teen Book The Ghost and The Goth

4 stars.

Describe the book: When Alona Dare, head cheerleader and mean girl, gets hit by a bus and killed, the only person who can help the light finally come for her is Will Killian, the creepy guy who always sits in the back of class. Now they have to work together, as much as they hate it, until they're closer than any friends either of them has had before.

What did you think: I have read this book many times over, and it never loses its charm or humor. I adore Will and Alona's relationship, and it only gets better as the books in this series continue on. The only qualm I have about this book is that it might get dated as time goes on because of all the modern teen lingo, but I think that the story is fairly timeless.

Who would you recommend it to: Fans of rom-coms, and the hate-to-love trope.

Champion Teen Book Champion

4 stars.

Describe the book: Champion is the 3rd installment in this series. In this book we see Day struggle with his illness and June with her new job. Intertwined in all of this is their confused feelings about each other. All these things are put aside though when an outbreak begins and the Colonies and the fate of the Republic is held by Eden once again.

What did you think: I love this book and the series so much! They are witty and exciting. Marie engages the reader from the very beginning. It is easy to see character growth in all her books and that is something that is really nice to see in a young adult book. It isn't as common as some would think.

Who would you recommend it to: Divergent fans or fans of dystopian novels

Boy book Boy

4 stars.

Describe the book: This book is about Dahl's childhood from his birth in Wales, his Norwegian roots, his schools and his first job. We learn about his adventures at school where he tells us about canings, funny plots and his love of chocolate. You can tell where he got his ideas for his books from when you read about all the entertaining events in his young life.

What did you think: My favorite part of this book was when he had to heat up a toilet seat for a devious prefect named Wilberforce at school during the winter. I usually am not a biography lover, but this biography truly impressed me! This book is one gigantic laugh! I really enjoyed it and it made me understand where he got his ideas for his books from!

Who would you recommend it to: I would recommend this book to Roald Dahl lovers.
