Thirteen Reasons Why? by Jay Asher

thirteenreasonswhy“You can’t stop the future you can’t rewind the past the only way to learn the secret is to press play.” (from Jay Asher’s 13 reasons why) 13 reasons why is about this girl who committed suicide and she leaves behind a series of tapes explaining the 13 reasons why she killed herself. This book reminds me of a book called “Before I Fall” it reminds of 13 reasons why because it is basically relaying the same message only this time it is from a different point of view. This book stands out because even though it is a fictional book it has such a real life, and emotional message that any and everyone who reads it will get. If you are a person who is very emotional take your time reading it because this book is like a roller coaster of emotions sometimes it will make you happy, sometimes it will make you sad,sometimes even mad,so if you have to put the book pause and resume reading when you feel up to it. I will give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. You should read this book it has a nice message in it.

Pinned by Sharon G. Flake

Recommended by Tracy V.
PinnedHave you ever been good at one thing, but bad another. Pinned is about a girl named, Autumn, who was good and loved wrestling, but her grade-level in reading was 2 years behind, and she has to figure out how she can keep up reading, and wrestling at the same time. This book reminds me of , Beacon Hills High, not only did both characters go to Beacon High, but both went through life struggles. What makes this book unique is that in this book the main character get what ever they want, but in the book the struggle is real for Autumn. My advice is to get a dictionary because Autumn’s friend Adonis uses big words. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like Urban Fiction, and a girl wrestling, cooking, and reading.

Recommended by Romon
the abbs Have you ever felt half Indian, and half white? Arnold Spirit is a Indian from a small reservation of Indians that has no life. Arnold is now attending a school called Reardan where the only white people. Everybody Hates Chris reminds me of a Part-Time Indian because Chris is black, and also attends an all white school. This stands out to me because Arnold doesn’t want to be like all the other Indians, he wants to become something in life. Never become a follower it wouldn’t get you no where in life. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like to see how he change from a low life into a smart young boy.

Batman by Bill Finger

Recommended by Robert E.
Batman 251I am the person in the dark, I watch over the city, and fight crime, and keep the city safe. The book is about a man that keeps the city safe from evil and villains. They make sure nothing bad happens to the people of the city. Spiderman has the same conflict, only he wears red, and blue while Batman wears black. Batman is unique, and the bad guys are unique as well. You should read Spiderman to start off with. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like superheroes. 

Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes

Recommended by Aiyanna
ninth-wardA hurricane will rise up. Will Lanesha family survive? In New Orleans Ninth Ward, twelve year old Lanesha, who can see spirits, and her adopted grandmother have no choice but to say whether the storm or hurricane Katrina bears down upon them. The Ninth Ward reminds me of, I Survive. The thing that makes The Ninth Ward stand out is sad they were, and how much they didn’t give up on themselves from drowning. I thought The Ninth Ward started out a little slow because the author put a lot of background about Lanesha, and TaShon family, but once they got into what Lanesha and TaShon not giving up. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like adventure.

The Night She Disappeared by April Henry

Recommended by Shamarr
That nightWhat would you do if you were in the situation of delivering pizza to an unknown area, and got kidnapped? Kayla was called to deliver pizza to an unknown area, but it turned out to be a kidnapping site. Everyone found out it was meant for Gabbie, another worker. The Night She Disappeared reminds me of Amber Alert and CSI because in CSI they helped to find the person dead or alive. It reminds me of Amber Alert because people who are kidnapped are most likely not aware like Kayla. The thing that makes The Night She Disappeared stand out, is how it gives everyone’s point of view and how they feel. Also because it has the time periods. It was very realistic. I think that the beginning was grabbed the most attention, but towards the last few chapters I drew away from the book. It got boring. I would give this book a 3 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like mystery. and realistic type things.
