Crash and Burn by Michael Hassan (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

On April 21, 2008, Steven "Crash" Crashinsky saved more than a thousand people when he stopped his classmate David Burnett from taking their high school hostage armed with assault weapons and high-powered explosives. You likely already know what came after for Crash: the notoriety, the college recruitment, and the book deal. What you might not know is what came before: a story of two teens who were destined, some say, to meet. And what you definitely don't know are the words that Burn whispered to Crash right as the siege was ending, a secret that Crash has never revealed.

Crash and Burn is a really good book. It tells about someone going through a struggle and losing someone he loves. Once you get into this book, you won't want to put it down. It's just one of those books.

Some people may find it confusing though because it starts off when Crash is older looking back at when he was younger, but you will get it by the end of the book.

I rate this book a 7/10 and I recommend this book to other teenagers.

When We Wake by Karen Healey (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Friday, Apr 12, 2013 at 8:20pm

Tegan Oglietti is an average girl growing up in Australia. She likes music, protesting against environmental and social injustice, and is crushing on her brother's best friend. And on one of the best days of her life, she dies and wakes up 100 years in the future with no idea were she is. It turns out that Tegan is the first successful patient to have been brought back to life. Tegan tries to create a normal life, even though she has become an over night celebrity, but that is not always easy. Especially when she keeps finding out shadowy secrets about the reason she was frozen...

When We Wake is a suspenseful novel. If you like dystopian fiction, then you will probably like this. I thought it was a pretty good book. I would give it a 7 out of 10.

The Gathering Dark by Christine Johnson (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

The Gathering Dark was quite a page turner! Author Christine Johnson does an amazing job of combining teen fiction, romance, and fantasy into one novel of interesting events.

The story focuses on Keira as she discovers a world outside of her piano. For the past thirteen years, Keira has sought out solace in her music, especially after the death of her uncle, her parents fighting, and of course, after the appearance of her startling visions. During the most difficult time of her life she meets Walker, the one person who she feels she can talk to and who really understands her. But as she draws closer to Walker, she begins to realize that he - and her visions - aren't what she thought they were.

My eyes have been opened to a new genre by reading The Gathering Dark. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to try out the fantasy genre, and I give Christine Johnson two thumbs for writing such a great book!
