As a child he was full of rage, but now as a senior inhigh school he's pretty much overcome all that. With the help of a goodtherapist and his decent, loving, ex-hippie adoptive parents, he's not onlyfairly even-keeled, he has turned out to be smart and funny. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It takes a book this good for people to want to censor it.
Chris Crutcher, Whale Talk (Dell, 2001)
3-0 out of 5 stars The best book
Whale Talk is a very interesting book, even though it is boring in the beginning and I almost brought the book back and almost picked another book to read but I decided not to and I'm glad I didn't because this is a great book. Its about a colored boy named T.J who was adopted because his mother did drugs and he was adopted to a mother who is a lawyer and he also has a dad and they are both very nice and they always wanted a kid but never could have one. T.J likes to swim, so he gets people together to make a swim team and a reason why he is doing this is because he wants him and the other people on his team to have there own letter jackets, because in there school you cant where a letter jacket unless you earned it by doing a sport or activity. So T.J gets a swim team together and the people on his swim team are people who dot really fit in with other people at school but they all get to know each other and become friends.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book.
Whale Talk is about a teenager named T.J. Jones. He has a very hard and unhappy childhood, his mother leaves him and someone adopts him. The parents that adopted him are very nice and kind. His dad looks like a crazy biker, but is actually a soft-hearted man, especially when it comes to kids. His mom is a lawyer and helps T.J. alot. The storyline is basically T.J. trying to start a swimming team. He tries to gain more members and it the end he gets a swim team filled with misfits. They work hard and get to know each other good. The book ends with a surprising chapter, and it teaches T.J. a big lesson.

5-0 out of 5 stars Under a War Torn Sky
This book was fantastic. It was very realistic to war. It showed how evil some people can be but then how nice others can be. Henry Forester goes threw it all.Henry is a 19 year old pilot shot down behind enemy lines. He has to survive a lot to make it home. I suggest a tissue when you read it too. But don't get me wrong its an awesome book.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best books i ever read
This book is brilliant, if you are interested in war, planes or thr second world war this is the book for you. It is clear nice easy to read writing and the chapters are short. The only problem is that i wished the story was longer it was that good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Under a War-Torn Sky
Wow!What a page turner!From the start, I was pulled in and felt like I was right alongside Henry, feeling what he was feeling. Henry was a "boy" who was a fighter pilot that was shot down during World War II behind enemy lines.Due to his perseverence and with the help of many strangers(includingFrench Resistance fighters)who risk their lives, Henry makes it back to his family's farm in Virginia--as a man. This war story includes everything that anyone would want-danger, suspense, adventure, even romance!Don't miss it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Keeps you Wanting more but wanting better.
This book kept you wanting more to the end. It just made you see and picture everything as it went along but it seemed to planned and too played out to when you got to the end your.. kinda not wanting to see the next book to it.
4-0 out of 5 stars Music?
Kissing Coffins is a entertaining read and a real page turner. It takes you into your own underworld of goths and vampires. You begin to fall for memorable characters like Alexander. The imitation of brands like Hello Batty and Hot Gothics is quite funny. The only negative thing about this book is the name dropping of some bands. I understand that Evanescence can be seen as a goth band to the casual listener but Good Charlotte? Everyone knows they are a bunch of punk poser wannabes. A real goth woudn't be caught dead listening to them, no pun intended. Anyway, it is a good read for any fan of young adult vampire novels if you don't mind vampire stereotyping...

4-0 out of 5 stars Kissing Coffins Indeed
I started reading Kissing Coffins as soon as I was done reading Vampire Kisses. It starts where the first book ends. Raven, the outcast goth girl, finds that her love, Alexander, has apperently vanished. She finds his family's mansion packed up and empty.

"He saw the blueness, almost a ball of energy, the crack-flash of color that came from inside his mind, inside his life, and then he was back and down and saw nothing more." You may never know when there will be a day where your stranded on an Island with know where out, you have yourself and Mother Nature with you, that's it.

I loved this book so much it teaches alot in 1 book!!!!! This book is 2 much 4 words...i just loved it!

4-0 out of 5 stars A-List 4: Tall Cool One
This book was very interesting, but not the best. First, I thought that Danny and Anna were gonna get together but he's in the beginning, and then he just disappears. Where did he go? I was also confused because this used to be kinda like a teenage soap opera and now this book was... a mystery in mexico. Different, but I should give Zoey Dean some credit for not writing the same old thing every book. But it was a great read, even though it was kinda different. The series is still awesome, and I still read the next book. So all is well, I'll just say it wasn't as great as the others.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, No Ben!
I was so happy! Finally obnixous Ben was gone! I loved when Sam and Anna got lost in the desert and found that house, but i also reallly wanted to know whos house it was. I loved how it wasn't all set in Beverly Hills and i loved all the descripiton. My favorite charcter was Lloyd because he was so werid. That drink that Sam and Anna drank that made them high is kind of like potscheen. ( Though i sure have never tried it.) I loved this book and you will too! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Profound, but profane
Looking for Alaska is a page turner. Did Alaska commit suicide or was her death a tragic accident? Why did she become so upset and drive off drunk in the middle of the night? The biggest question of all was Alaska's: "How will we ever get out of this labyrinth of suffering?" Pudge's answer to this question in his essay at the end of the book is profoundly true. For its mystery and truth, I loved this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Makes Boys Sound Like Wreckless Hormone Driven Monsters,
Basically to make a long story short he gives boys 5-0 out of 5 stars A Clinical Psychologist's View
I find Gurian's cross-cultural perspective fascinating, and he does a better job in this book than in "The Wonder of Boys" of suggesting actions that can be taken and changes that can be made to help our young men.As a mentor and a clinical psychologist who works with children and their families, I see far too many boys trying to figure out how to become men with little or no input from men.Growing up just happens as boys grow older, but maturing is another matter; maturing or developing into adulthood requires guidance and/or examples to follow. Mothers do all they can, but boys need men they respect who will teach them how to become men, or at least lead by example.This is highly recommended for mentors, educators, and parents.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but left me longing for more
I have 2 boys 12 and 14. I hunger for books on this subject. I liked this book better than others. I chaff at the sterotypes necessary in this sort of book although Gurian handled this issue gracefully.The book is dense on theory and philosophy and more articulate and complete and thought provoking than most. I liked his list of characteristics and attributes of the fine young man. The sections on practical hints, while much more complete than most other books on the subject could certainly bear some fleshing out especially for parents who not are well connected with adequate male models.It made me grateful I have a great husband and a circle of good friends. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Hardship, determination and a strong will enable this young woman to develop into a noble woman
Shabanu enjoys the pleasures of her childhood with her playmate and camel, Gulaband.Shabanu draws alot of strength and encouragement from her Auntie Sharma, a single-parent, when it becomes a matter of survival for the family and the adults begin making decisions of major consequence.
4-0 out of 5 stars Shabanu: great read for some.
My son is 12 and had to read the book for a 7th grade project on diversity. He loved the book. It truly depends on the child, and his/her reading abilities if it is going to be a great experience or a boring one. I think it is a appropriate book for a middle school reading list.

4-0 out of 5 stars Jillian's review
Shabanu is the story of a girl named Shabanu and her sister Phulan, who lived in India. Both girls will be promised to marry a man when they are of age whether they like it or not. Shabanu was to marry Murad and Phulan was to marry Hamir, and both were happy. That's the end, right? Wrong! When tragedy strikes, Shabanu is forced to marry a 53 year old man named Rahim-Sahbib, who she does not want to marry. If she refuses to marry him, Nazir Mohammed, Rahim-Sahbib's brother,will make Shabanu and Phulan's lives miserable. Will Shabanu go against her families beliefs and follow her heart, or will she do what she is told? Read it to find out! I liked Shabanu a lot, because it has a great message. Also, I really liked the character of Shabanu, because she was a strong character and I like how she wanted to be herself. I would recommend this book to [...] and up, because of some hard to understand language and inappropriate content. ... Read more

I really loved this next book and now can't wait for the third book in this Restoration series.In this book, services and functions improve a bit (using pre-computer technology) and the people become very practical.Concerns of left-behind children, etc. come into the picture.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Face on the Milk Carton
The Face on the Milk Carton was a good book. I can say that it mostly kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to read more. I usually don't read mystery books, but this one was very interesting. Within 5 min. of reading this book, I just could not put it down. The reason why I say this is a good book, and not a very good book is because, yes I did very well like the book but it had some parts where I felt as if Janie was asking a lot of questions and in my opinion she was sort of freaking out to much. So it made her sound really annoying in the book. Anyway if you are the kind of person who does't really like mystery, I suggest that you pick this book up and I guarantee you won't put it down.

5-0 out of 5 stars The face on the book carton
The Face On the Milk Carton is a good book. If you like scary or books that keep you on your feet, you would like this book. I liked the character and personality of Janie. She is just like your normal fifteen-year-old girl. She is in to boys and likes to look at herself in the mirror. During class she is always daydreaming. Her mom is trying to get her to do different activities with her like cake decorating, but she does not really like them; well, it's not her mom its her grandma. What I mean by that is her mom named Hannah joined a group and her grandparents saved Janie from being in a bad group. I recommended this book for all of the people that like books that keep you on your feet, and that like mysterious books suspens

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Loved It
I loved this book. It was a great read. Tiria finds the two injured birds, Brantalis and Pandion. She also has a few visions of Martin, who tells her to sail for Green Isle. This lets Tiria go on her adventures while the Abbeybeasts unpuzzle the riddles. It also speeds the plot up a lot. Tiria finds Cuthbert, and sails to Salamandastron. There she picks up 30 more hares, her regalia,and sails to Green Isle. There the book comes to an excellent conclusion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended for fantasy readers in middle school, high school and beyond
Young Tiria Wildlough is an ottermaid touched with destiny: she journeys from Redwall Abbey to an isle where she must fulfill an ancient prophecy to gain her inheritance, and face a wildcat chieftain and his catguard slave masters. Her involvement in an otterclan battle will change her world in this latest Redwall saga for fantasy readers in middle school, high school and beyond.
5-0 out of 5 stars An aquired taste
With Redwall, my experience is that you get into it early, or not at all. I first was introduced to the world of Mossflower when I was eight, and I have never left it. Now I am a teenager, and when I try to get my friends to read it, they call it childish and trite. I realize that the plots do aquire a certain sameness over the course of the series, but I find that incredibly comforting. I know that one or two good beasts will die, but the good guys will win, and the bad guys will get their tails kicked in an extremely satisfying manner. ... Read more

Often compared to Tolkien's Middle-earth or Lewis's Narnia, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea is a stunning fantasy world that grabs quickly at our hearts, pulling us deeply into its imaginary realms. Four books (Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful novel of a wonderful series
I read the Earthsea Trilogy as an adolescent. I remember loving it, although the experience was, even then, very different for me. I was a fan of C.S. Lewis, Tolkein, Lloyd Alexander. But Leguin felt really differrent. Part of this was that the novel was more intellectual in focus, more about what lies at the heart of her characters and less about overt action, heroics. I remembering being surprised that the plot moved so quickly away from the obvious. In this novel the hero, Ged, very early on makes terrible mistakes. Instead of being brave and untarnished, he's afraid and for some time runs away from the evil he's unleashed. This is not obvious fantasy fare. It doesn't fit the formula, and for that I loved it. Adolescence was, for me, a time of much uncertainty and doubt and sometimes outright fear. I really connected with Ged and appreciated being able to read about a troubled, damaged hero who wasn't always perfect. Also, I did note that LeGuin is careful to describe her character's racial diversity. This is a world of brown and black people, with a few paler ones living at the margins of society. I think people often miss this, but I didn't then.
2-0 out of 5 stars Overrated
So often it seems like an adequate book is well loved just because it appears in an "unusual" genre. If this book was about anything but wizards, it would be considered mildly entertaining, but not much else. I found it neither very intellectually stimulating, nor focused around an incredible plot. Of course, people can like what they like, but I feel like this book was a real let down.

3-0 out of 5 stars "There was not much work to be got out of Duny."
While not as detailed or as ornate as THE LORD OF THE RINGS, LeGuin's Earthsea Cycle is considered among the finest of the Sword and Sorcery classics. A WIZARD OF EARTHSEA is the first book in the Cycle.

Editorial Review

Fans of the Alex Rider Adventures will not be disappointed by the slam-bang action in this fifth book in the spy thriller series, although the ending may leave them feeling a bit dismayed. A parachute jump onto the roof of a super-secure pharmaceutical complex, a desperate escape from a water-filled cellar under the canals of Venice, elegant and witty encounters with mega-criminals bent on death -- it's all here, and Alex, still 14-years old, comes out ahead every time in spite of the heavy odds against him. "Go to Venice. Find Scorpia. And you will find your destiny," Alex was told by a dying man at the end of the previous book, Read more

Editorial Review

"Going all the way" is still a taboo subject in young adult literature. Judy Blume was the first author to write candidly about a sexually active teen, and she's been defending teenagers' rights to read about such subjects ever since. Here, Blume tells a convincing tale of first love--a love that seems strong and true enough to last forever. Katherine loves Michael so much, in fact, that she's willing to lose her virginity to him, and, as the months go by, it gets harder and harder for her to imagine living without him. However, something happens when they are separated for the summer: Katherine begins to have feelings for another guy. What does this mean about her love for Michael? What does this mean about love in general? What does "forever" mean, anyway? As always, Blume writes as if she's never forgotten a moment of what it's like to be a teenager. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Still a Great Read!
I managed to miss this one when I was reading Blume as a pre-teen...and since it's around that time of the year (banned book week), I decided to find out why it is that this book gets challenged so often...and yep, I can see why!It's a realistic look at young love, about how teens feel about love and sex and how emotionally crippling a romance can feel at that age...it doesn't pull any punches and presents a realistic and compelling story of young love that could have happened to any of us.I do see why some parents might not want this in libraries...but I personally would LOVE to see teens reading this...it presents an honest, open, and responsible look at teenage love and sex.I love that this goes one step further than that "forever" feeling and examines what happens when those same teenagers who pin their whole emotional future on one other person go away to college or for summer jobs (or both)...what happens when they are exposed to new people and experiences and how that changes what they thought would be forever!
5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book
I just read it for the fifth or sixth time.Not sure what else to say that hasn't already been said.Basically it was entertaining, honest, enlightening, touching, and the break-up scene made me cry.Who hasn't gone through that?It reads so realistically, and quickly!I was so disappointed it was so short, I really wanted to see what happened after.Maybe Blume will write a sequel about Katherine in college called "Theo called."

1-0 out of 5 stars Love Story? No. Moral book? Not even.
I have heard people say that Blume was an amazing author. I read this book and was thouroughly let down. I thought it was going to be a love story but I was wrong. It is a sex book and is completely pointless. If Blume was trying to write a moral book then she was way off target.

3-0 out of 5 stars Wait.... that was really unfair....
This series was great. I've followed all the books up until now. The setting is totally unique, and the characters are likeable. When this book started, there were three characters that really made me enjoy the books. Darren, Vancha, and Mr. Crepsley. Vancha's awesome just because he's so cool. Mr. Crepsley is great because he's the one who made Darren, and he's really loyal to Darren. His sense of humor is gruesome but awesome, and he's kind of the backbone of the story. He helps Darren through stuff that seem impossible. When he dies, though, the book kind of loses its atmosphere of lightheartedness. It was a serious book series to start, just because of the subject matter, but by killing off a character who I felt was one of the main driving forces of the story, Darren Shan's stories feel like they have lost momentum. The book series becomes too melancholy and sad.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing, suspensful, and very sad
I love the cirque du freak series sooooooooo much I've read all of them and own all of them, but out of all of them this is the saddest.I liked it a lot it was suspensful, amazing and uterly wonderful but i hated it when Mr. crepsly dies.He was my favorite caracter.i also really hated it when i figured out that he actually didn't kill the vampaneze lord and stupid steve really was the vampaneze lord.i cried a lot when he died.But still, at the same time i really recomend this book because i still love the blood and gore and the suspence.You can't stop reading.( The last two sentences were for all the series of the book.)

4-0 out of 5 stars its cool
Darren,Vancha,harkat,and mr.crepsley are being chased by the police,vampaneeze,and an angry mob.The ending i realy hate for specific reasons that might spoil the book.But fighting the vampaneeze,running from the police,and an anrgy mob chasing them.all this action makes the book is pretty good.the fact that some one risks something for no one realy made me mad and made me cry,but thats just me and my friend emily.My friend Josh just said cool when he read.over all this is a pretty good book to read if you have read the ones before it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too
Georgia Nicholson is at it again in the newest installment of Louise Rennison's hilarious series about the trials and tribulations of a lovelorn British high school girl. STARTLED BY HIS FURRY SHORTS does not disappoint readers who have grown to love the quirky Georgia, her eccentric family, and her Ace Gang of best buddies.
5-0 out of 5 stars Let's go down the disco!
In this, the seventh book of the Georgia Nicholson series, Georgia finds herself in "the oven of luuurve" once again.At the end of the last book, Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers, Georgia had given the Italian Stallion, a.k.a. Masimo, an ultimatum: to be an exclusive couple.
5-0 out of 5 stars Laugh-till-you-fall-off-the-bed humor laced with slightly raunchy fun that will keep you reading long into the night!
Georgia Nicolson is not currently in a happy place regarding her love life. In fact, she's stuck in neutral in more ways than one. According to Georgia, she's not only on the rack of romance, but in the cakeshop of agony, the oven of luuurve, and the bakery of pain. And, if you must know why, it is all because of the Italian Stallion, Masimo. The man who has knocked the Sex God - aka Robbie - right out of her mind, and taken up residence in her heart, as well as in the band the Stiff Dylans, as their new singer. But Georgia has made the mistake of a lifetime. For, when she finally decides to give Masimo an ultimatum - become her one and only or hit the road - he tells her that he needs to think about it. And, we all know that whenever a guy uses the words "I need to think about it," he can't be thinking anything good. Which is why Georgia is on the rack of romance. Now, to distract herself from thinking about Masimo and the fact that he may not call her, or even want to be with her romantically, Georgia has thrown herself headfirst into MacUseless play rehearsals at Stalag 14, and is in the midst of helping Ro-Ro plan a Viking wedding that is scheduled to take place around five years from now. The only problem is that Dave the Laugh is around more than ever - what with MacUseless rehearsals and such, and Georgia is finding herself more and more pre-occupied with kissing him, all because she has been struck by the horn. If only Masimo would just give her the news, she could spend all of her time kissing him - or at least dreaming about kissing him.

3-0 out of 5 stars I don't understand why so many praise this so highly
First of all, i just really couldn't get into art work, i mean the characters heads and facial structures are just so distorted that they almost look as if they have down syndrome. I will admit though that the Joker although looking extremely cartoonish with the oversized teeth, still came off very fresh look, Batman however looked slightly wimpy and not nearly as intimidating or imposing as he usually does when drawn by other artists such as Jim Lee, Norm Breyfogle or Graham Nolan just to name a few.
5-0 out of 5 stars A classic tale from Batman's early years (5 stars)
The Long Halloween expands on the origin story created by Frank Miller with Batman: Year One.Gotham City is ruled by mobsters with Carmine Falcone at the head.Batman finds that he can't bring Falcone down on his own but the shaky alliances he formed with Harvey Dent and Lieutenant Gordon in the first book merge to find the three working together to bring down the mob boss.As Falcone's men start getting knocked off systematically on holidays (the mystery killer is subsequently dubbed "Holiday"), Batman, Gordon and Dent scramble to uncover the killer's identity and get as much evidence as possible to incriminate Falcone.The twists and turns through this 13 issue series are classic, iconic, and confusing making rereads not only necessary but exciting as well.The morally ambiguous conclusion and the surprise ending by Jeph Loeb brilliantly recall the mood of such classic films as The Empire Strikes Back and The Usual Suspects; his work here is his best in any medium.Tim Sale's physically intimidating Batman is the perfect blend of seasoned fighter, master detective, and stealthy prowler and the art is consistently beautiful and brooding throughout the series.The Long Halloween is Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's most famous and critically acclaimed book and the brilliant world they create to transition from Miller's Gotham to the classic Gotham that readers are familiar with, by including cameos of some of the pantheon of Batman villains in their "earliest" appearances, is masterful.Anyone looking to read up on the Dark Knight would do well to start with Year One and then pick up this classic tale of crime and mystery in Gotham City.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb!
I came back from a ten year Bat hiatus this time last year after reading an essay on the Dark Knight in my English 101 class. Back then Batman was apart of my daily afterschool TV diet: The character, the stories, the rogues gallery. He was an integral part of my childhood and now as I embark on a second chapter in my life I am thrilled to say that he is still there. After reading up on what was going on during DCs Infinite Crisis/One Year Later, I asked around for what the fans thought was the best, or at least a really good, Batman story. All the answered varied but I did notice a pattern and Long Halloween was one story I decided to risk and tackle.

Editorial Review

Fields of white opium poppies stretch away over the hills, and uniformedworkers bend over the rows, harvesting the juice. This is the empire of MatteoAlacran, a feudal drug lord in the country of Opium, which lies between theUnited States and Aztlan, formerly Mexico. Field work, or any menial tasks, aredone by "eejits," humans in whose brains computer chips have been installed toinsure docility. Alacran, or El Patron, has lived 140 years with the help oftransplants from a series of clones, a common practice among rich men in thisworld. The intelligence of clones is usually destroyed at birth, but Matt, thelatest of Alacran's doubles, has been spared because he belongs to El Patron. Hegrows up in the family's mansion, alternately caged and despised as an animaland pampered and educated as El Patron's favorite. Gradually he realizes thefate that is in store for him, and with the help of Tam Lin, his bluff and kindScottish bodyguard, he escapes to Aztlan. There he and other "lost children" aretrapped in a more subtle kind of slavery before Matt can return to Opium to takehis rightful place and transform his country.Read more
