We’re lucky enough to have two teen assistants this summer. Julia and Cat will be helping out in the teen area and willl make sporadic appearances here on the blog.
Today they’ve written reviews for two books you might want to check out.
My Sister’s Keeper is a novel written by Jodi Picoult about a fifteen year old girl suffering from a rare type of leukemia. Her sister was genetically formed to be a perfect match for any donations she needed to help fight the disease. It tells a dramatic story of a young girl trying to find herself, beyond just aiding her sister. In my opinion, this book is a real tear-jerker and makes you think about the important things in life. From the chapters being separately told by each character, you really get a feel of what is going on inside their heads. My Sister’s Keeper was recently made into a motion picture, but I would suggest reading the book first because you go into the movie with a better background of the story. All in all, this is one of my favorite books, written by one of my favorite authors. (By: Cat and Julia)
Wake is a book written by Lisa McMann that revolves around the difficult times for a high school student when she cannot control going into people’s dreams. Every time someone near her falls asleep, she first loses sight, then goes numb, until she finally becomes able to pull herself out of it. This book is extremely thrilling and interesting because it is like she has a super power, but sometimes this power is not exactly a positive thing. I definitely recommend Wake for any teenager because it tells the story about a girl, with a very different experience in high school who holds powers that you would never think were possible.
