Erin Hunter

Allegiant Teen Book Allegiant

4 stars.

Describe the book: 3rd book in the divergent series The factionless take over, but Tris, Four, and a few others make a secret alliance to try to get out of the city and see whats outside the fence. Outside the fence, they find out they are a part of a large string of government expirements with genetics and behavior. They fight for the city's safety and reformation

What did you think: Oh. My. God. It is so amazing. The ending will leave you gaping for a long time. I really like how well thought-out the whole world is, and how it makes sense with events happening now. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. There are so many unexpected twists and characters and events that happen> You just sit there completely mesmerized!

Who would you recommend it to: grades 8 up, dystopian world/futuristic lovers

- E.L. (Grade 10) from Snohomish Library



Veronica Roth
TEEN ROTH
A Clockwork Orange book A Clockwork Orange

4 stars.

Describe the book: In a future London, Alex is the ringleader of a fighting, robbing, and raping gang. When he is caught by the government, his punishment is to have his personality and morals changed to make him a better person. But the question is, does forcing him into good make him a better person? Or is this making him a mechanical man... A clockwork orange?

What did you think: This is an exceptional book that really makes you question morality and how people become good. This book has a lot of made-up Slavic-based slang, so it's a bit tricky to read. However, it's totally worth it. Be warned, though; the constant violence and action makes it graphic in multiple ways.

Who would you recommend it to: Those who enjoyed "1984", "Lord of the Flies", etc

- N.R. (Grade 8) from Lynnwood Library



Anthony Burgess
FIC BURGESS
The Fault in our Stars Teen Book The Fault in our Stars

4 stars.

Describe the book: A girl named Hazel Grace Lancaster is living with cancer. When she attends a support group, a guy named Augustus Waters shows up and they end up falling in love.

What did you think: I loved the book and I could read it over and over again.

John Green
TEEN GREEN
Forever Teen Book Forever

3 stars.

Describe the book: After the several crazy events that took place at the end of the previous book, Belonging, Rose learns that she's pregnant and wonders how to handle it, her being an "English" girl and Noah being Amish. In the aftermath of their reconciliation, will Noah's community welcome her back and marry him? Is that even how she truly wants to live?

What did you think: I liked it a lot, and finished it within a short amount of time, but was extremely disappointed with the ending. Several things happened within the story that were interesting but the ending to it all was so plain/dull/too "perfect". I was more invested in Sarah (Noah's sister) and Micah's side plot, to be honest. which ended earlier on.

Who would you recommend it to: gr8+, Amish, forbidden relationships, pregnancy

- A.K. (Grade 11) from Mill Creek Library



Karen Ann Hopkins
TEEN HOPKINS
Lovely, Dark and Deep Teen Book Lovely, Dark and Deep

4 stars.

Describe the book: After her boyfriend Patrick dies in a car crash, Wren recluses up to her dad's art studio up in the deep forests of Maine. She doesn't want to talk to anybody or do anything because of the guilt she and grief she feels. She also begins to feel mutually attracted to Cal, a guy nearby that lives with MS, and struggles to deal with her feelings.

What did you think: I really loved the simplicity of this book and the scenery described to me was beautiful, whether it be the woods, the ocean, the architecture, even to smaller things like the rooms and items/actions being used. The way it was written in Wren's scattered mind was somehow different than other books, a lot better. I got frustrated with characters!

Who would you recommend it to: gr7+, relationships, death, MS, hermit tendencies

- A.K. (Grade 11) from Mill Creek Library



Amy McNamara
TEEN MCNAMAR
Fahrenheit 451 book Fahrenheit 451

4 stars.

Describe the book: In a dystopian future, the totalitarian government hires firemen- not to put out fires, but to burn books instead. Guy Montag, a fireman, never questions his duties until ten years later, when a rapid turn of events makes him realize that maybe the government is wrong, and that he should make a stand- even if it costs his own life.

What did you think: This is the perfect classic for people who hate the mundane plots of other classics. This one is action-packed and violent. I also love that this book teaches us not only about the importance of literature, but also that we sometimes need to stop and really appreciate nature and other things in life rather than electronic entertainment.

Who would you recommend it to: People with brains...

- N.R. (Grade 8) from Lynnwood Library



Ray Bradbury

Describe the book: Julia is a girl who works at her family business and are having these visions of a crash. She has no idea when it will happen,or who it will happen to but she is determined to figure it out and stop it and these results shock her when they start geting worse.

What did you think: It was an amazing book. It had drama,action,romance everything a book lover could ask for. It takes you in and makes you the main character and the author has a little surprise for you at the end to get that second book.

Who would you recommend it to: I think people who love being the adventure.
