Have you ever wondered what I’d be like to see yourself in and as someone else? Confused? So was Sasha Lawson, awakening in a parallel universe held hostage by her dates analog. Sasha Lawson has always had an extraordinary imagination that started when her grandfather would tell her stories of princesses in parallel universes that looked just like her. She also had an ordinary life, that is until Grant came, and then so did Thomas. But Thomas and Grant are one in the same. Thomas came from a parallel universe to take her back with him so she could pretend to be the princess of that world while the army there tried to free her from her captors who had taken to cause riot in their world. She must pretend to be the princess, her analog, or doppelganger, to keep their nations at peace. This book reminds me of A Wrinkle In Time. They are closely like each other because the both are kind of futuristic and fantasy based. These books closely compare to each other. What makes this book unique is it talks about parallel universes and a opposite but the same world of Earth. I didn’t know that the chapters that are italicized are really Sasha seeing through her analogs eyes. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars rating. It’s awesome

Iron King by Julie Kagawa

iron king bookRecommended by Le’Asia H.

Have you ever wondered what a fairy land would look like if Iron Fey took over? Well in the “Iron King” it is about fairies. But there not like fairies you read in the fairy tales. They’re mean and harsh. But this girl has a best friend named Goodfella. They go into the fairy land and the Iron Fey are taking over. This book reminds me of life today. I say this because technology is conquering the world. The journey they take though the fairy land reflects life. You should read it and remember to read between the lines. I would give this book a 4 out of 5. You should read this book if you like science fiction books.
