The Clique

by Lisi Harrison

Clique coverThe Clique is about four girls that own the school. Everything is going great... until Claire shows up. Massie (the queen bee) gets a little intimidated so of course she finds some way to hurt Claire, but two can play that game!

I liked the part when Claire finally got some payback. I would recommend this book/series to girls in grades 6-9.

Midnight Comes to the Metaphor Cafe

by Robert Pacilio

Midnight cover

Midnight Comes to the Metaphor Cafe is about how four seniors go through their last year of high school, and determine what they will do in life. It serves as a sequel of Meetings at the Metaphor Cafe, which was about the teenagers as juniors being taught by an amazing teacher.

Midnight Comes to the Metaphor Cafe is a great book that shows the drama and challenges of the senior year of high school. In my opinion, I feel that its prequel, Meetings at the Metaphor Cafe, was a bit better since you could really imagine yourself in the situations of the book.

I recommend it to anyone who's read the first book. This book shows how different real life can be compared to high school, so teenagers should also enjoy reading this.

The Scarlet Letter

by Nathaniel Hawthorne

This book was about the life of a "harlot". While she only did what any other human being would, the world around Hester Prynne judges her to an extreme.

This book was a bit of a challenge, but had a very strong message and conveyed a very interesting tone.

This book would probably only be best for teens, or adults, with higher reading levels, but just because it is a challenge.

Demon Thief

by Darren Shan

Demon Thief coverWith the opening of a window into the demon world, Kernel discovers his powers as a Disciple and his mission to hunt the viciously powerful Demonata to the death.

It is a good book because the protagonist is changed from the first book and it explains how far a kid would go for his brother.

I recommend this book to anybody with a strong relationship with their family.
