Great, Great Book!!!!!

Wow. That is really all I can say about Legend. Fast-paced and ferocious, it sucked me in and kept me there until the end. The characters were great, the plot was fast-moving and the writing was good. It put a great spin on a futuristic society and the politics that go along with it and asks a question that none of us really want to answer: how far will you go to follow the orders of your country? If you liked Divergent, you should definitely read this.

The Future of Us

The Future of Us tells the story of best friends Emma and Josh. When Emma gets her first email account, a browser showing Facebook shows up on her screen. She looks into it and sees her future in fifteen years. Josh and Emma realize that changing little things in their present lives affects their futures in big ways. The two teenagers endure the normal challenges that face adolescents, but with the knowledge that they had gained about their futures. The book keeps you interested and makes you want the best for the characters. Though the ending is slightly predictable, I still felt myself smiling when I finished.

A Year Without Autumn

A YearWithout Autumn is definitely a page-turner and I highly recommend it! This book starts where twelve-year-old best friends, Jenni and Autumn, are at a summer time-share where they go during the last week of August with their families every year. The book is told from Jenni’s point of view. Jenni goes into an old elevator that she realizes takes her into the future. When she’s in the future, she sees that there is a tragic accident that has happened to Autumn’s family. Will she be able to go back to the present and keep the accident from happening, or is the accident fate that is bound to happen? Read this book to find out!

Mousenet is a sweet story about a girl who lives with her mom. Her mom does research on global warming and travels the globe to study animals, but when she is left with her Aunt who thinks her sweaters are disgusting and she is barely civilized. Her cousin just thinks she's plain weird. 

The only friends she has are mice that stowed away in her suitcase to try to find out about the thumb-top: a mini computer that is just the right size for mice. What she must do for them is get the computer ready for mass production, and to do that she must win the trust of her cousin  and sneak her way around without being caught!

 I recommend this book to anyone who likes sweet fantasy.

Kiss, Crush, Collide

Well I'll admit, I should have realized when I looked at the cover that I wasn't going to like it. But the back of the book said that it was comparable to Perfect Chemistry, which was a book that I loved.

The difference between these books was that Kiss, Crush, Collide had not a speck of realism. I hated the main character, and never at any point in the book did she realize that she had everything that everyone could ever want or need. So in reality this book just made me mad, and I wouldn't recommend it.
