4 stars.

Describe the book: Nigel is 99 years old. Hes also a vampire. He has the average struggles of a freshman. His gym teacher is so hard on him that he needed a note from his father to get out of gym.

Tim Collins
The maze runner Teen Book The maze runner

4 stars.

Describe the book: In the book, maze runner, this kid named Thomas wakes up in an elevator thing only to be greeted by a bunch of other random guys.his monkey is whipped so he has. I trace or thought if where he was. The people around him try to explain where he was but Thomas still had guestions and concerns.they tell him that he is in a maze and he wasn't leaving.

What did you think: I normally don't like reading so to find a book series I like is like finding a dinosaur bone. I LOVED it. My favorite parts where when Thomas ran out of the glade right when the doors where closing. Especially in the movie it left you on the edge of your seat.

Who would you recommend it to: Science fiction maybe

All the Lovely Bad Ones Juvenile Book All the Lovely Bad Ones

4 stars.

Describe the book: It is amazing. When the two main characters, Travis and Corey, arrive at Fox Hill Inn, it is very quiet but it will not stay like that for long. When they play ghost and scare some of the residents, something darker starts to do the scaring. Fox Hill Inn has become a Haunted Hotel.

What did you think: It was amazing. I liked it when they realized that ghosts were real and when the ghosts show their faces.

Who would you recommend it to: It is for everybody who likes adventure.

halo: mortal dictata book halo: mortal dictata

4 stars.

Describe the book: This book was about a government branch called ONI trying to find a stolen alien ship, and capture or destroy it. Mean while a human insurrectionist tries to find his missing daughter and plans to attack earth to get the truth, as well with a group of aliens wanting to steal the ship that ONI wants

Even in Paradise Teen Book Even in Paradise

4 stars.

Describe the book: Charlotte befriends Julie, a rich, mysterious new girl to St. Anne's, when she rescues her from being caught outside drunk by the night guard at their dorms. Julia welcomes Charlotte into her world, her family, her life... Julia is wonderful, but perpetually haunted by the death of her older sister Gus and Gus' boyfriend David from years ago.

What did you think: This book jumped through time a lot, but I think that was a great way to do it; ignoring all the everyday banter in between and sticking to significant points of the next couple years. It was sad to see Julia's family members trying to make Charlotte be responsible for her behavior... that's not her job as her friend, as much as she loves her.

Who would you recommend it to: gr8+, friendships, family, death, lgbtq

- A.K. (Grade 12) from Mill Creek Library

What did you think: It was exciting when Artemis is reborn into a clone.

Who would you recommend it to: It is for anybody.
