Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott
Something, Maybe

brittani, February 24, 2010

"Something, Maybe" has to be one of the most amusing yet emotion-filled novels I have had the pleasure to read. Hannah is a strong character and voice, and she is easy to relate to. We have all had our moments of embarassing parents and unrequited love. And the way Elizabeth wrote this, it is just amazing. I highly recommend it.

Wake #03: Gone by Lisa Mcmann
Wake #03: Gone

brittani, February 10, 2010

Not near as fast-paced and exciting as the first two books in the Wake Trilogy, Gone is still a good read. With a plot twist that is unlike the other two books, Lisa McMann wraps up the trilogy very well. I'm really sad to see this series end, but all good things must come to an end someday. Still another highly recommended read. I'm glad she ended the series how she did. It gives good closure to the characters.

Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
Some Girls Are

brittani, January 27, 2010

With a plot along the line of that of Laurie Halse Andersen's "Speak", Courtney Summers takes it to a whole new level. With "Some Girls Are", she doesn't hold back. Not only did I find the book interesting, but I couldn't put it down! I even found it much better than "Speak". This is an amazing example of young adult fiction literature. I highly recommend it.

The Espressologist
The Espressologist

brittani, November 15, 2009

Being a barista for two years myself, I have gotten to where I have been able to guess what people will order for their coffee just by looking at the person. And with Kristina Springer's debut YA novel, The Espressologist, she takes this to a totally different level: matchmaking!

I am a total lover of young adult books, but many haven't been able to win me over fast like The Espressologist was able to do. Brimming with humor and very likeable characters, this was a very enjoyable read. I was able to really connect with Jane, the barista who is able to matchmake people through their coffee preferences, and even the other characters throughout the novel.

I can only see more good things from Kristina Springer because her debut was dynamite. A must read for coffee lovers and those who don't love coffee alike. I'd highly recommend it.

Tricks by Ellen Hopkins
Tricks

brittani, September 13, 2009

Brutually honestly and with gripping detail, Ellen Hopkins didn't hold back with Tricks. Since her groundbreaking Crank and shocking Identical, Tricks has got to be the most surprising of all her novels.

She weaves together in great detail the stories of 5 teenagers with different backgrounds and personalities but the same falling into the grips of the underground sex trade of America. Some might think that this book is much too mature for teenagers, but Ellen took great care in writing a novel that is not only honest, but is quite frank of the dangers of this all too real danger that has taken the lifes of millions of teens.

A highly recommended read. Yet again Ellen Hopkins has written a novel that teens and adults alike can relate to.
