Smith, Andrew(2013)Recently Added Review
Winger
Young Adult

Ryan Dean West, aka "Winger", is having a tough time this year. For one, he is 14 and the smartest kid in the eleventh grade and he plays left wing on his boarding school's varsity rugby team. The biggest challenge is his move to o-hall, the dorm for kids who need extra monitoring. He is completely in love with his best friend, Annie. His roommate, Chas, is a forward on the rugby team and everyone knows forwards and wings can't get along. To put it lightly, Ryan Dean has trouble fitting in. Winger is a book that paces well and tells the story of firsts, the bond of a sports team, and, above all else, what it means to love others and look over their differences.

This is What Happy Looks Like
Young Adult

When Graham Larkin, a famous young actor, mis-sends an email to Ellie O'Neill, a girl his age living in Maine, a witty flirtation begins that connects them though they are thousands of miles apart. The problem is, Ellie has no idea that Graham is a celebrity, so when he shows up on the set of his new movie in her Maine town, she is more than shocked. With a pushy costar, ice cream, and salt water everywhere, it seems impossible that their relationship will last an hour under the searing spotlight, but happily ever after is not always a fairytale. Smith crafts a well-written story that is sweet and rings true, even if a relationship with a celebrity does not.

The Eye of Minds
Young Adult

In The Eye of Minds, everyone lives for the VirtNet. The VirtNet allows human minds to feel as if they were in an actual video game. As interesting as that may sound, this type of video game has its disadvantages. Michael and his two friends are forced to take part in a life-threatening adventure: to find and stop Kane. Kane is a VirtNet hacker who finds a way to remove player`s Cores and kill their character, which kills them in the real world. Each chapter in The Eye of Minds is fully detailed and action-packed. Once you begin reading The Eye of Minds, you will not want to stop. If you love video games and sci-fi, then this is the book for you.

Charbonneau, Joelle(2013)Recently Added Review
The Testing
Young Adult

If you are looking for an upbeat thriller that takes place in the future then The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau would be the perfect read for you. The Testing is about a future society in America where citizens of various colonies have to be chosen to enter an elite group of candidates. They all have to pass The Testing in order to have a chance at attending college and pursing a rewarding career, two things that are very hard to come by for citizens after the seven stages war. The Testing is a nice blend of action, thriller, competition and friendships, morals, and love. While reading this novel I constantly thought of The Hunger Games. These novels are very similar and if you enjoyed The Hunger Games then you will appreciate The Testing.

Siege and Storm

Bardugo, Leigh(2013)Recently Added Review
Siege and Storm
Young Adult

This book is the second book in the Grisha trilogy; it starts out after the main character Alina, the Sun Summoner, and her friend Mal have run away from the evil Darkling. Eventually Alina and Mal are forced to return home. Alina is a strong girl but starts to doubt herself after she starts fighting with Mal and is forced to plan a war. Though this story does start out slow after you get into it, it is a good book. I would recommend reading Shadow and Bone first as it will help you understand the choices these characters make.
