5-0 out of 5 stars The Body of Christopher Creed
This is a superbly written teen novel containing an array of excrutiatingly real characters. Being a teacher of teenagers, I see these kids at school on a daily basis. I've read a large number of Young Adult novels that create cartoony representations of what a teenager "looks like." THE BODY OF CHRISTOPHER CREED looks, sounds and feels much more realistic. That is the pillar of this highly engaging story.
5-0 out of 5 stars chris creed- missing the message
I thought this was a fabulous book; very suspenseful and realistic. I'm not going to summarize because everyone else has just done that. The characters were very realistic and beleiveable, and so was the situation- kids go missing in high school at least once a year. The only thing that bothered me about the book was that the author used the word 'mutter' way to much, and she used it inappropriately, which repeatedly got on my nerves. But other than that, it was fabulous.
4-0 out of 5 stars The Body of Christopher Creed review by Evan FMS

this book falls under my favorites!In the beginning of he book the demonic Opal Koboi reluctantley plans her revenge to kill Captain Holly Short and Artemis Fowl.While Opal Koboi is plotting in her fake coma, she secretley breaks out and is finally ready to kill Holly and Artemis.This book was absolutely phenominal!!the plot stuck right on a trail but ended completely unpredictable.the character were very believeable except for most of the mystical creatures, but you could feel their emotions.this book in my opinion ranks right up nest to Harry Potter, Eoin Colfer did an excellent job!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Artemis fowl: The Opal Deception
Holly, a soldier in the lepRecon has messed up many times.Last time she got captured trying to replenish her magic by the wicked Fowl family.This time when she replenishes her energy and strength Artemis visited her for help (not very likely).There is a new enemy among the community and he might even have out smarted Artemis himself.
5-0 out of 5 stars Book review: Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception
Suspenseful, and exciting from beginning to end, Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception is one of Eoin Colfer's best books.

Editorial Review

It's 1906 and 16-year-old Mattie Gokey is at a crossroads in her life. She's escaped the overwhelming responsibilities of helping to run her father's brokedown farm in exchange for a paid summer job as a serving girl at a fancy hotel in the Adirondacks. She's saving as much of her salary as she can, but she's having trouble deciding how she's going to use the money at the end of the summer. Mattie's gift is for writing and she's been accepted to Barnard College in New York City, but she's held back by her sense of responsibility to her family--and by her budding romance with handsome-but-dull Royal Loomis. Royal awakens feelings in Mattie that she doesn't want to ignore, but she can't deny her passion for words and her desire to write. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my top 10!
Okay, when I first checked this book out of the library, one of my teachers scoffed at me. Apparently he had scanned a page and had seen cuss words. But when I began reading it, I fell it love with it, and finished it within the afternoon. Mattie, the main character is growing up in such a hard situation, in a time when women still had little rights. Mattie battles between settling down and going to college. I'll leave the ending a surprise, but it made me cry, the reason being because it ended just as much as the actual ending. It's centered around the death of Grace Brown, who had given Mattie a pack of letters to burn. Mattie reads though, and solves a murder. Mattie is such a real person, and Donnelly's words are so poetic. It created a whole new world for me, and I'll never forget this book. Although I would not suggest this book for those under 13 because of language and adult sequences, but everyone else deserves to read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars IT TAKES A VILLAGE....
Matty Gokey is the sixteen year old narrator of this novel.With the 1906 murder of Grace Brown (also covered in Dreiser's "An American Tragedy) setting the stage for this tale that ultimately explores not only Graces murder, but the issues of poverty, racism, pregnancy, the perceived station of women in society, and the effects of death/loss on the human spirit.
5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss This Gem Because of the YA Designation
I am not sure why this work is considered a young adult novel, because at the ripe old age of 55, I was intrigued by Donnelly'sauthentic, right-on-the-money, bulls-eye prose. The narrative chronicles the coming-of-age of young Mattie Gokey, who lives a hardscrabble rural life in the North Woods of the Adirondacks in the early 1900's. The novel functions as historical fiction, and it accurately pinpoints the poverty, racism, mores and gender issues of this era in this particular location.

Terri Blackstock has done it again. This book made me think of the end of time...when we all must come together...trust in God for our needs and know he will provide as he says in scripture.What an awesome book and ending!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great second chapter to the series!
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.

I read about this book in EW and immediately went online to buy it.The topic sounded so refreshing.I tore through this book in about half the time it takes me to read a book of this length.I know this sounds cliche, but this was truely laugh out loud funny.I woke up my wife on numerous occasions laughing as I read long after she has fallen asleep in bed.
4-0 out of 5 stars If you like Freaks and Geeks...
A whimsical murder mystery wrapped up in a music-obsessed episode of Freaks and Geeks. Engaging, clever, and often very funny. You don't have to be part of the teen/young adult audience to enjoy it, either. (I'm 31). 4.25/5.

5-0 out of 5 stars STUPENDOUS!!!

Editorial Review

Ever since David Yaffe was acquitted of murder in the accidental deathof his girlfriend, he has felt that "for the rest of my life, over and over, I would have to convince everyone--including me--of my harmlessness." To escape media attention and the prying stares of the curious, he is sent to finish his senior year of high school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he lives in the attic apartment of his Aunt Julia and Uncle Vic. They receive him coldly, and his 11-year-old cousin, Lily, is openly hostile. (The apartment previously belonged to their older daughter Kathy, who died an apparent suicide at age 18.) With a haunting series of episodes--including a sporadic humming and a fleeting shadow--David begins to sense Kathy's eerie and powerful presence. Read more

David B. Yaffe has a lot to contend with.Acquitted of murdering his girlfriend, Emily and beating her brother Greg, David's parents help usher him out of their home state of Maryland to the home of his maternal aunt and uncle-in-law in Boston.David had to repeat his senior year and hopefully start anew in Boston.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not a typical book...
This book was wonderful because there was nothing typical about it.The suspense was very well done, and the book was able to keep surprising me.Characterization was also done well, at least of the main characters anyway.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Killer's Cousin
I found the book The Killer's Cousin very enjoyable. It's one of those books that keeps the reader wanting to know more and forces them to read on. It's about a 17 year old boy named David who was recently acquitted of murdering his girlfriend. To escape the media he moves out of state to stay with his aunt, uncle and 11 year old cousin Lily. After moving though, he can't help but feel not welcome or at home. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great young adult book
Code Orange kept the attention of my 12 year old daughter who really doesn't like to read.It was on a list of approved books at her school for summer reading, so I was reassured that it would be appropriate for her age.I would recommend it to others of this age group.

4-0 out of 5 stars Code Orange
Code Orange took a long time for me to get a hold of and it was pretty much worth the wait. I found that this book was very exciting and I enjoyed it very much.
4-0 out of 5 stars All About Orange Code.
This book takes place in New York City in present time. Mitty is a 15-year-old boy who thinks that life would be so much easier without school. The only reason that he makes himself go is Olivia. Mitty takes advanced biology, and he's not really sure why. His class is assigned to research a infectious disease using books as their textural references. If he does not make a good grade on this test, he'll go back down to regular biology. Mitty would be fine with that, but it would mean not being in Olivia's class. So he decides to do the project. He chooses Variola Major, commonly called smallpox. While researching, Mitty comes upon a envelope stuck in between the pages of a disease book. When he opens it he finds several, what he believes were once smallpox scabs from a 1920 epidemic. As Mitty is writing his paper, he describes what smallpox does to your body. I recommend not reading these parts on a stop-and-go bus ride on the way to school, it only makes it worse. At the end of the chapters, the author tries to scare you by implying that the scabs had gone into his nose, and were affecting Mitty. He himself can not decide if he actually has this disease which he and the rest of the world thought no longer existed, or if he is simply imagining it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Book Of The Series!
Over the summer I read all of the books in the series by Laurie faria Stolarz. That included Blue is for Nightmares, White is for Magic, Silver is for Secrets, and Red is for Remembrance. My favorite one was Silver is for Secrets and that is the one I am writing about today. Laurie faria Stolarz put so much great detail into the whole series. I loved all of the books!
5-0 out of 5 stars Best but sadest book ever!!
This book was the best. I read it in 2 days, I couldnt put it down. You have to read it, but I made the mistake by reading this book befor I read White is for Magic or Blue is for Nightmares. So if I could go back Id read those first. And Im not going to spoil the ending for you, but its very surprising and made me cry for a LONG time. You HAVE to read it!!

5-0 out of 5 stars I think it's the best one!
I think that Silver is for Secrets is the best out of the first three books.I kind of predicted that Clara wasn't all that innocent.Mainly because she didn't really care about losing her life.She acted really childish and flirty.I never really liked her character. I never thought that she would do what she did at the end.Overall, this is a great book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb suspense and real life issues.
Edgar winner, Werlin, combines suspense with real life problems as Matt and his sisters Callie and Emmy try to keep their volatile and unbalanced mother happy. One day in the convenience store they witness Murdoch stopping a kid from being abused and become obsessed with him. For Matt's birthday, Callie finds Murdoch's address but their mother finds it and takes them all over to Murdoch's house. They begin dating and kids' lives look so much better but Murdoch quickly realizes that the mom is unbalanced and breaks up with her. Each day with their mom raises the question of survival. Will she drive the car with all the kids in it into oncoming traffic? The relationships between the siblings are richly depicted and Werlin's pacing is excruciatingly good. It is a page turner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Richie's Picks: THE RULES OF SURVIVAL
As Matt explains, it was a sweltering Boston evening, and a date night for their mother. Matt was thirteen at that point, and Callie was eleven on that evening they left their five year old sister Emmy sleeping alone in the apartment, climbed out the window, and raced around the corner to buy a couple of Popsicles at the convenience store. They would return home a few minutes later with the dream that a stranger whose behavior they'd just witnessed might somehow be persuaded to intercede in the frightening and dangerous world they inhabited, a world controlled by Nikki, their nightmare of a mother.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Message is You
Ed Kennedy is a young cab driver in Australia, with not much direction or ambition.When he is suddenly thrust into the limelight as a hero in a bank robbery, he begins receiving mysterious messages written on playing cards. Each message leads him to a new person and a new scenario to puzzle out.Ed has no idea who is sending him these cards, but he does know that his life has more meaning than ever before.
5-0 out of 5 stars Find the meaning of life
I bought this book recently on a serendipitous bookstore trip during a family reunion in Colorado. It is most definately worthy of the multiple starred reviews it has received. Ed Kennedy, a 19-year-old with no forseeable future, is extremely likeable and readable. His life takes a sharp turn for the positive when he receives the first card in the mail-an ace with three addresses and times. It suddenly becomes clear that these people need his help, whether in large ways or small acts of kindness. Three more aces follow, and thus embarks Ed's adventure to help other people, and naturally in the end help himself. His friends are very realistic and their issues are almost as compelling as Ed's. There is a bit of romance, but it doesn't overpower the rest of the book-it's a very nice balance. Family challenges are a major theme here, as is learning your true potential. I would recommend it to teens over the age of 15 (some swearing and violence), but it is more than adult-friendly, and interesting enough to be a page turner for all ages, and the price is unbeatable as well. All I have to say thank heavens for spontaneous trips and books like this!

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!
When I finished reading 'The Book Thief' I felt at a real loss as I did not want it to end. And this book is not any different. Markus Zusak not only writes very well, he captures your imagination in ways that prevent you from being able to live beyond the book! Set aside a couple of days and read this book. Tell your friends you have a really bad cold and can't come into contact with people for two days at least. Be willing to smell from a lack of showering as you will not want to put this book down. A great read! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Blackthorn Winter reveiw by Julie D.
In one of her latest novels, Blackthorn Winter, Kathryn Reiss puts everything you would think of in a mystery, and more into the plot.This book wasn't just your average "who done it" mystery; it included drama, suspense, and more.I have to say, I have read a lot of mysteries in my life, and this one definitely is on the top of my list.Some mysteries are a little unrealistic, but this one I could understand how she was feeling, and it all seemed real to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL CONCEPT - YOU MIGHT WANT TO OWN THIS ONE
This is a different book in so many ways.It is really one that should be placed not only in the children's section of the library, but the adult also.The author gives us a brief explanation as to where the pictures came from (no spoiler here..read it yourself), and then the book begins.Each picture is all Allsburg.Wonderful black and white illustrations done in pencil and, as with his other books, each illustrtion is absolutely captivating and a delight to gaze at or study.Each picture is accompanied by just one line of a story with no explanation other than the picture itself.This is a wonderful book to add to a creative writing class, for any age, contemplate late evenings, or just to enjoy anytime.This work will certainly not hurt a childs imagination and infact can start the day-dreaming going in most adults.I highly recommend this one and highly recommend you add it to your home library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Beautiful
When I first saw this book as a kid it really sparked my imagination.To this day I still get chills when I look at the pictures that speak volumes through mere implication.Allsburg is a visual master with a mind for sharp effective prose, to which this is a testament

5-0 out of 5 stars The Mysteries of Harris Burdick
There is no age limit for enjoying this book. Anyone can let their imagination run wild! The illustrations are beyond beautiful... they are somewhat spiritual!! Buy this for any creative thinker you know (and love). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The Ruby In The Smoke
The Ruby In the Smoke is a good mystery, and exactly what I would expect from Pullman. The characters are intriguing, and the sudden deaths make it very suspenseful. I felt very connected with Jim and Adelaide, as they showed quite a bit of personality. A good book is one in that you can't tell whether or not a person is actually good or will betray sometime.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Ruby in the Smoke, July 14, 2006
Philip Pullman has created a new character that readers can empathize with and root for during this suspenseful mystery.Sally Lockhart is a sixteen year old orphan girl that receives a strange note about the death of her father.As soon as she begins her investigation, more deaths occur.Sally becomes entangled in a web of mystery involving murder, illegal opium trading, and a stolen ruby.Sally has many nightmares, which she is unable to understand until she uncovers more pieces of the puzzle.The suspense builds as new characters are continually brought into the mystery, making it difficult to know who can be trusted.
5-0 out of 5 stars Some of the most realistic charcters you will ever have the pleasure of reading about...
I shall admit that upon reading some of these reviews I felt my heart sink, for I believed this book better then those of His Dark Materials - if that is even possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars I want this book
Reading the reviewers' reviews made me want to find this book. I don't care if it takes me around Malaysia because I am a book collector and this book perfectly fits in my collection. The other reviewers' reviews are really helpful because I am looking for a new book. I just finish reading Susan Davis's masterpiece 'Mad, Bad and Dangerous'. Football match has started, chow!!

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best YA of 2006!
Gallagher Academy is a school for girls interested in joining the Alpha Net: FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. Only students and staff understand this quirk of the school. It appears to be a place for female geniuses, and is--only it is so much more.
4-0 out of 5 stars I Spy a Great Book!
It's Kim Possible meets Harry Potter's Hogwarts in this action packed adventure of teenage spy-in-training, Cammie Morgan. First time spy assignments, eclectic teachers with unusual talents and new classmates all present their own challenges to Cammie. But it's Cammie's struggle to balance her "normal" boyfriend with her "exceptional" upbringing and the expectations that are placed upon her that make the story move along so quickly. Although not my usual book fare I really enjoyed this book.I'm happy to hear that Ally Carter is planning on writing a sequel and also look forward to seeing "I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You" as a Disney movie. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Twisted Summer
Cici who was always considered a little kid is now 14 hoping to be accepted by the older kids on the island. However when she arrives on the island after missing a summer she discovers that Zoe had been murdered the summer she missed in a cottage. She also learns that the person they accused for murdering Zoe and is in prison is her family cooks son. She also has the hugest crush on his brother. Cici is sure they have the wrong guy and when she starts finding clues she wished she would never had went looking for them. This murder mystery might just be connected to her family more than she ever thought it would be. This is a great book it started slow but it got really interesting. This is the kind of book that you can't stop reading you wanna know who did it. So do you really wanna know who did it it was her close friend one she never thought could do something like that.....?

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
This book is excellent and worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars What? Where? When?
This is another great book by Cabot! I can't really say much except that it had a bunch of twists and turns. First all evidence says this guy was a killer, but WAIT no its this guy, WAIT it could be either...the whole book was like that. Exciting, different, and exactly what book lovers want. I LOVED it! I definately reccomend it!

4-0 out of 5 stars a good book
This book is good a little scattered in places , and the plot is kinda all over the place but it still is a really good book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel To A Well Written Series (Spoiler Warning)
The second book in the Mediator Series, Ninth Key, is really very good.I didn't see the plot coming from anywhere.The whole book is filled with twists and turns as to whom the ghost, who came screaming in while Suze was trying to sleep, exactly is.It leads her onto an adventure to find out who the infamous "Red" is, and sends her investigating the past of her boyfriend, Tad's father.Of course, Suze really doesn't consider him to be her boyfriend.She rather that be Jesse, "whose ghostly status--not to mention apparent disinterest in her--make him unattainable." ...

4-0 out of 5 stars nightmares make for a wonderful story
My friend read this book before me and when she described it I was a bit sceptical. I mean, she said it was about a girl who practiced Wicca, had nightmares and wet the bed. Who could like a book about a teenager who wets the bed? It wasn't until a year or so later that I read the book myself. I found that it was well written. Plus it had what I always search for in a book, romance with something attached to it. This book is a supernatural base set in the modern world, about a girl with modern problems. The only weird thing is that she has premonitions. These premonitions while she sleeps add the eerie and mystery to this book, which I absolutely love. It had me ready to read more the minute I was done with it and I was only too glad that the sequeal was there for me to read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Witty and Witchy
I was walking through my local Barnes & Noble and decided to peruse the teens section. There wasn't really anything there that I hadn't seen before, until I saw "Blue is for Nightmares". I was SO right to go with my intuition and buy this book. I really enjoyed it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book I've ever read only Second to Harry Potter
I haven't been felt such an edge of my seat experience since the last Harry Potter book was released. I've only read this one and the second, and I'm dying to buy the third. Buy the book because its amazing. The only thing I'll say is I'd recommend teenage girls buy it. Not that there's anything "bad" in it, I just really don't think guys would enjoy it much. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Left me Speechless
These books are amazing.... All of them. Red is for Remembrance left me happy, sad, thankful... What an amazing author. She brought me into Stacey Brown's life and now I feel like I have to continue living it. I hope one day I'll be as good of an author as she is. This series left me speechless.

5-0 out of 5 stars a great end to a great series
Okay so Stacy is dreaming again, only this time no bodily fluids (anyone else disappointed?). In her dream a girl is telling her to help or "he will die." Convinced this will bring her to Jacob, she agrees to help the president at her school whose daughter is having nightmares and is on the brink of being institutionalized.
