DJ Rising is a heartfelt book that tells the story of a teenage boy with an almost impossible dream. The main character, Marley, has a tough life. With his father dead, a drug addicted mother, a school scholarship to sustain, and a job to work at six days a week, Marley barely has any time to be a normal teenager. But in the free time he does have, Marley breathes and dreams music and becoming a famous DJ. So when his friends hook him up with the gig of a lifetime, how could he say no? But, just as things are looking promising for Marley’s future, it starts tumbling down. I liked how the author allowed the reader into Marley’s mind, making them feel as if they were really experiencing his roller-coaster life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a truly touching story.
I really loved the first book in the second Seekers series, The Island of Shadows. Written by Erin Hunter (who also wrote the great Warriors series), this is, what I think, one of her best books yet. I’ve heard some people say that when a series gets into its second series of books it gets boring. Judging from this book, however, I can prove that they are wrong; Toklo, Kallik and Lusa are trying to get home, accompanied by Yakone, who claims to be a lost cub when the four bears meet. Toklo wants to protect him after Ujurak died, but the others aren’t sure. Can they trust him?
Above World has so much hate, passion, suspense, and action, it feels like it's going to explode in your hands! This book is the epic adventure of two kids who venture into the Above Worldto save their race from destruction. Along the way you will meet more weird species, evil humans, and intelligent animals, you have heard of in all the books you have read combined! I highly recommend this to lovers of Sci-Fi and fantasy.
Double is about Chap, a runaway boy with no family or friends. When Chap is mistaken as Cassiel Roadnight, a missing boy, Chap decides to steal his life and becomes Cassiel so he can have the friends and family he always wanted. After wishing his whole life, he discovers that it's not quite what it seems. Chap begins to wonder about Cassiel's disappearance and starts to think that Cassiel might not have disappeared after all. I would definitely recommend this book, especially to people who like mysteries.
