Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

Reviewed By: B.K.

Lock and Key was a very meaningful book. It was about a young girl named Ruby who basically took care of herself, since her mother wasn't a "people person." When her mother leaves her, and doesn't come back, Ruby lives by herself, finding ways to make people think that her mom is still home. Eventually, people find out that Ruby is living by herself, and since she isn't 18 yet, she has to go live with her sister who had left years before to dorm in college. She had eventually gotten married. Now, Ruby has to go live with her, and she barely knows her since she's so different from when she used to live with Ruby.

Why I Picked It Up: I picked this book because my sister had recommended the author, Sarah Dessen, to me. I decided to try one of her books, which turned out to be Lock and Key, and instantly fell in love with this well written novel.

Why I Finished It: I finished this book because I wanted to know what happened at the end of Ruby's great adventure.

I’d Give This Book To: I would recommend it to those who enjoy books that consist of a strong character, who overcomes great challenges.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Reviewed By: B.K.

Pretty Little Liars was a very interesting book. As most people know, it is also a T.V. show. I found the book very intriguing. Some people may not like it due to the amount of the books in the series, which is 16 books. The reason you want to keep reading, and just read the whole series, is because you want to know who is the mysterious A, who has been sending threatening notes to four girls. You also want to keep reading it, to figure out who murdered their friend, Alison, who had disappeared three and a half years ago.

Why I Picked It Up: I picked this book up, because I was looking for a good book to read during winter break, a book that had a lot of novels in its series. I figured that Pretty Little Liars was probably the book I should choose.

Why I Finished It: I finished it because I wanted to know who was A, and who killed Alison. I am currently still reading the series, but am close to finishing it.

I’d Give This Book To: I would recommend it to people who enjoy a good mystery, because the book is about four girls trying to find out who killed their friend, and who is this strange A.

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Reviewed By: B.K.

This book is surprisingly very interesting. Usually you hear most people criticize this book, but if you actually try to read it, you will get addicted to it. This book has the perfect amount of action, romance, and adventure. Most people judge the book by its movie. But the movie isn't even close to the book. So I suggest you should go read it.

Why I Picked it Up: I picked this up because I had to do a project for English. I saw Twilight, and decided it was worth a try, because my sister is obsessed with it. And it turned out really good.

Why I Finished It: I finished it because it was getting so interesting, that I couldn't bear to part with it. So, I did what any good reader would do, and finished it!

I’d Give This Book to: I would recommend it to people like me, who enjoy fantasy and romance, to please read this book. It is BEYOND amazing.

The Selection by Keira Cass

Reviewed By: B.K.

I took this book like last week. Since I'm a really fast reader, I finished it in 2 days. It was actually pretty interesting. Basically, it takes place in the future. There is this new country named "Ilea" that is in America. America is gone. By this time, there has already been 4 World Wars. In Ilea they have a kingdom. When the prince comes of age, he must pick his wife from what is called the Selection. The Selection contestants are picked randomly. And that is where the main character, America, comes in. And that is all I can say without giving away the ending

Why I Picked it Up: The reason that I had checked out this book was because my friends read it, and they told me it was a really good book.

Why I Finished It: The reason I had finished was because I can never start a book and not finish it. Another reason I had finished it, was because it was fairly interesting.

I’d Give This Book to: I would recommend it to people who enjoy shoes such as the bachelorette, because The Selection has a very similar concept. I would also recommend this to people who enjoy romance.
