Thank you  Allison and Nazareth for your amazing reviews!

Chicken Soup for the SoulChicken Soup For The Soul, Just For Teenagers / Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Amy Newmark

Yes, I would recommend this book because it shares real stories from real teens. From 'Tough Stuff' to 'Funny Moments' this book makes sure you know you’re not alone. This book will inspire you or give you a good laugh and instead of one long story, this book is filled with many mini stories, so you can always close the book with a satisfying ending.

Big Dark / Rodman Philbrick

I would recommend this book. It is about a boy named Charlie Cobb, who lives in the very small town of Harmony, New Hampshire. It starts with the residents of Harmony outside, watching the Northern Lights, when suddenly there is a big FLASH and all of the planets electricity goes out! Batteries do not work, and even the stars won't shine. Everything is dark. Charlie and his family invite people back to their house, with everyone thinking it will only be like that for a little while. But it is not. One resident, Bragg, is trying to take all the supplies for himself, sometimes offering gold coins, which the town doesn't accept. And even worse, Charlie's mother is running out of her pills that she needs, Charlie decides to use his friends' skis, and ski all the way to Concord, another city where he can get more pills. Will he make it?

Thank you  Ryanna and Easha for your amazing reviews!

Specials / Scott Westerfeld

Yes, I would recommend this book. “Specials” is the third book in the Uglies series. This series will keep you reading, with its unending suspense and surprising twists. It’s action-packed but leaves you thinking every time you finish one of the books. That is why I would recommend this book (series)

Ice coldCold As Ice / Sarah Mlynowski

I would recommend this book to fairy-tale lovers. It is the sixth book in the series, Whatever After, about two kids named Abby and Jonah, who have a magic mirror on their basement that takes them to fairy-tale worlds. In this book, they are in the Snow Queen, where their dog is frozen by the queen, and they are taken captive by a band of robbers, where they meet a reindeer named Ralph, and a girl named Gerda. They have to figure out how to rescue their dog, and Kai, a boy who is under a spell, without getting frozen themselves.

The Terrible Two / Jury John and Mac BarnettThe Terrible Two / Jury John and Mac Barnett

I would recommend this book to someone because if you like pranking/ pranksters/pranks then this book is for you. It talks about different kinds of pranks and how to do them and it’s exciting to see when the next prank will come in the book. Also there was never a part when I got bored to read, so it was a good book to read.

Thank you Maggie, Calvin, Nate, and Aidan for your amazing reviews!

Dangerous Lies/Becca FitzpatrickDangerous Lies/Becca Fitzpatrick

Yes, I would recommend this book. Becca Fitzpatrick is my favourite author, and this is just another amazing book of hers. Again there is a female lead, so I would recommend for girls, who is fighting for herself and her life. It is a very dramatic book, but has lots of funny moments too. The main character, Estella, is in witness protection after she witnesses a murder. She is forced to move far away, and take on a new identity. I would recommend for anyone who likes drama, action and comedy.
