Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year by Amy Belasen
Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year

Kya, December 24, 2008

This is quite possibly the worst book I have ever read in my entire life. I got through the first half and then had to stop, because continuing on was a chore. The main character is a horrifyingly stereotypical depiction of a spoiled teenaged girl, the writing style is horrid; it is as if the most unintelligent and uninteresting valley girl's journal was published. I'm glad I got the book for free, otherwise it would be the worst thing I ever spent money on.

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Wicked Lovely

This is a great read. The faerie concept is normally a major turn-off for me, but the way Melissa Marr portrays the faerie courts almost like regular people made the book very easy to fall in love with and follow. The romance in this novel is excellently developed and the characterization is exquisite. It is a dark, sexy novel perfect for any girl fifteen or older.

City of Bones: Mortal Instruments #1 by Cassandra Clare
City of Bones: Mortal Instruments #1

Kya, December 24, 2008

This is an excellent novel for both boys and girls ages thirteen and up. I prefer this series to the Twilight saga hands down as the main character, Clary, is much stronger and a better female role model than Stephenie Meyer's Bella was. This novel is full of action, adventure, fantasy, and romance. It's the type of book that will make you laugh out loud, gasp, and jump with fright. I would recommend this book to everyone, even if they're not a fantasy fan; because the fantasy aspect is not overbearing enough for it to be a total fantasy book.

Broken Soup. Jenny Valentine by Jenny Valentine
Broken Soup. Jenny Valentine

Kya, April 22, 2008

This is a book that I could not put down. I was sitting in the most uncomfortable position known to man, and all I thought of was the story. It's a great story of a young girl who is carrying her entire family on her shoulders as they all mourn the loss of her older brother. The writing is very poetic, and the characters well-developped. With great twists and turns in the plot, I would highly reccomend this book for anyone over the age of 13. Near the end it gets a little cliché, but all in all a great read.

This is a GREAT spy novel for teens. It's so hard to find any teen fiction these days not centered on romance or love. The main characters are multi-dimensional and easy to realate to. If any teenager is not big on reading, this book and the one before it (Sure Fire) ia an excellent way to get them on the reading track.
