    The Mysterious Benedict Society

    The Mysterious Benedict Society - Trent Lee Stewart

    The Mysterious Benedict Society is the first of many books. The book follows three extraordinary children with incredible skills of intellect. The plot only gets more interesting when espionage and an identical twin get thrown into the mix. This is definitely a book worth reading, especially if you like spy/psychological books.

    Looking for Alaska

    Looking for Alaska - John Green

    This book is very interesting. If you enjoy romantic/drama books, this book is for you. I'm not going to spoil it for you- you will have to read it for yourself. But just to give you a heads up, I think you will like this book very much, just as much as I did.

    Dorothy Must Die

    Dorothy Must Die - Danielle Paige

    Dorothy Must Die is a fantasy series that has put an interesting twist on the classic tale of The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy has come back from Kansas once more to the wonderful world of Oz, but not is all as it seems. Dorothy has become the cruel tyrant of Oz. Definitely a book I would reread, filled with action and excitement from beginning to end.

    Wonder

    Wonder - R. J. Palacio

    Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, which entails enduring the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student.

    Lucky Few

    Lucky Few - Kathryn Ormsbee

    Lucky Few is a pretty interesting book. It has a unique idea that I believe is rarely found in books. It is fresh, new, and gives you a perspective of a person who tries to find out where she truly belongs. Lucky Few mainly focuses on friendship, losing the person most closest to you and trying to live through it. The author combines love, purpose, and trying to live a life you were never used to. I would definitely recommend this book to people who would like to enjoy a story that has a very different idea on life.

    The Leaving

    The Leaving - Tara Altebrando

    The Leaving is truly a legend. It is one of the most interesting books ever written. It combines sadness, finding yourself, and trying to live the present with no past. It shows the best out of someone and also the worst. It gets the characters to question themselves and others. It makes them doubt themselves so they can find the answer. It is one of the best books I read.
