Overpowered by Mark H Kruger (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Jul 11, 2013 at 7:04pm

Nica Ashley goes wherever her mom's job as a journalist takes her. That is until her mom needs to go to Antarctica and Nica cannot join her due to the lack of schools in the area. Nica is sent to live with her father in the small town of Barrington, Colorado. The town seems strange from the start but then Nica notices the pulse which changes the attitude of the people, possibly giving them supernatural abilities.

I found this book to have a rather predictable plot and quite a few clichés, but overall, it was nicely written.

In the year 2214, Felix Taylor travels back in time to save the world from a devastating plague. The world is now content and at peace. But when someone hijacks the time travel device, intent on reviving the plague, Felix must travel to a city long lost to the pages of history: Ancient Rome.

This sequel to Nicholas Maes' The Laughing Wolf portrays a brilliantly imagined future and a vividly re-created past! Fortuna is perfect for readers who enjoy mythology, mystery, and sci-fi fantasy. Two thumbs up!

The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Audrey McCarthy is the maker of the new boyfriend app sweeping the world! Her apps allows any girl to get her dream guy to fall for her. But when things get out of control, and with a two hundred thousand dollar prize meaning the enrollment at her dream college on the line, things get out of hand.

I am pleased to say that there were no cliches what so ever in this book and I would really like to pat Katie Sise on the back for that one because WOW she did an amazing job organizing and planning this novel. As soon as I saw the title of this book I was hooked! This book will appeal to a lot of young teens because most girls go through the same things as Audrey does in her crazed high school life. With the countless plot twists I couldn't put this book down!

Anthem for Jackson Dawes by Celia Bryce (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Jun 26, 2013 at 5:02pm

Anthem for Jackson Dawes is one of the hardest books I have ever tried to read. The heart wrenching story made my stomach churn and my eyes water every time I picked it up.

Following Megan Bright through the excruciating journey of cancer and the people she meets along the way, it shows a clear picture of the pain people go through every day.

Megan must learn how to fight her battles: how to live without hair, and how to live with the only other teen in the cancer ward, Jackson Dawes, the hospital troublemaker.

Through love, pain, and heart-wrenching stories, Megan learns to cope with her new life.

The Wall by William Sutcliffe (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Jun 22, 2013 at 9:21am

Life is different over the wall. Joshua thinks he never will get to see the other side of the wall, but when he is in in a construction site looking for his lost ball, a tunnel grabs his attention. Joshua gets a first hand experience on just how different life is over the wall. Joshua returns, but he knows he has to go back.

This book was a pretty good read. I could sense the emotions that William Sutcliffe was thinking of but they could have used a bit more description. The ending redeemed that loss though. The story of this book was really good and I'd say if you don't really like action but want a book to make you think, this might be the book for you.
