Random Zits by Jim Borgman and Jerry Scott

“I’m right and you’re wrong” said Jeremy to the authorities in his life, like parents and teachers. This a comic book, and there are different stories. Jeremy is teenager who wants to do everything on his own. His parents are dumb and like music from the 60s. This reminds me of the comic Calvin and Hobbes because Jeremy is mischievous like both of the characters in that series. If you don’t like teenage humor then take the book slowly. There is a tiny bit of humor that is not for young children. I give it 4 out 5 stars. You should read this if you like Calvin and Hobbes.

The Seer of Shadows by Avi

seerRecommended by Nicholas R.

What if you could see things that normal people couldn’t see? This book is about a boy who is a photographer. This boy can see spirits. A family lost their beloved daughter in a bad “illness” or so they say. Are they telling the truth? The main character will do anything to get the truth and do what is right. This book reminds me of the movie 1408, because the main character is witnessing a haunting as well and a romance is involved.The book stands out because the main character is so young at the time, and what he goes through is just mind-blowing. It’s really good. In the beginning it is a little slow, but soon picks up after the main character hears about the death. I rate this book a 5-star. You should read this book if you like ghosts and history.

   Welcome to Horrorland! I hope you enjoy your stay because it may be the last place to you see.Jill and Jackson are twins. Now there is a new set of twins, both girl and boy. Jill and Jackson can`t stand the other twins. Jill and Jackson start to realize they have special powers and so do the other twins,but will the institute allow that?
This book reminds me of a horror move called 13 Ghosts, a story where people are locked in a place. This movie and book share a genre of horror. What makes this book unique is it tells an original story written by R.L.Stine. My opinion on this book is that it starts slow but gets exciting and more exciting. I would give this book 5 out of 5. You should read this book if you like horror or suspense.
