Teen Review: Jay’s Journal

Posted in Realistic Fiction, Teens Read on September 11, 2013 by juniebeth

Book JacketI liked this book very much. Jay tried to get away from many different things but they ended up coming right back to him, making everything harder for him. This book taught me many different things I did not know about or even think about, such as cosmic consciousness and witchcraft. This book was not some boy really into drugs, it was a boy into witchcraft and many different things.****

Teen Review: Crash into Me

Posted in Realistic Fiction, Teens Read on September 11, 2013 by juniebeth

Book JacketI like the storyline of this book, it is different from what every other author writes about. Four people go on a drive to different suicide cites. I like the different characters in this book, they are each different and have a story. This book gives people who are thinking about ending their lives, a different choice. The characters’ relationships grow and they all start to know each other more. When they reach the end of the road trip to where they are all supposed to commit suicide together, I like how the road trip changed how they all felt about life.*****

Teen Review: Party

Posted in Realistic Fiction, Teens Read on September 11, 2013 by juniebeth

Book Jacket I like this book because there are so many different point of views. There are eleven different point of views. I like how the author made each character somehow related to another character throughout the book, they aren’t from different countries, they are all friends of a friend, an ex boyfriend, an ex friend. It goes in a circle. I like how in the ending most of the characters come together and through each chapter, through a different person’s point of view, they have the other characters from the past chapters in it.*****

Book CoverThis book is about a big end of school party that many high school students and now graduates are going to. I like how the author made the story through 11 different points of view from different people. Each character knows or relates to another character in a way to make you not confused from all of the different points of view.*****

Teen Submitted Review: Gone

Posted in Science Fiction and Fantasy, Teens Read on July 24, 2013 by juniebeth

Book CoverI like the authors idea in this book, having every adult disappear and everyone else has to fend for themselves. It shows how much kids depend on their parents or guardians and older people to help them and comfort them. I also liked how the author made the story switch point of views from a couple different people, and they all come together in the end. I also like how this book shows what might happen if adults really do disappear; they run out of food, people think they have power, there is fighting, sadness and many problems.***
