Trackers

Adam Henderson is a techno prodigy, give him broken down computer parts and he’ll change a whole room into a super computer. When Adam meets Finn, Emily, and Lewis he tries out his high-tech cameras with them. Adam soon finds a problem during a test with the cameras. He knows he has to solve the problem and drags the rest of the gang into it. In this series by Patrick Carmen you have to go online and watch videos to find out what happens during some of the most intense parts. And in the end the twist will have wanting more.

Pretty Little Liars (the books) *Tease*


The pretty little liars books are all about betrayal, secrets, and four teenage girls. Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna all lost their best friend in seventh grade when she went missing the night of their sleepover and now three years later they’re trying to forget all of the horrible things Ali made them do and say. Hanna is having a bulimic problem, Emily doesn’t know who or what she likes, Aria’s father is cheating on her mother and only Aria knows, and Spencer keeps stealing from her sister. The problem is that only A knows and she/he can and will tell if they don’t do what A says.

Mockingjay – *SPOILER*

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins was the last of The Hunger Games series and was widely anticipated. I am not alone in thinking that this book was a severe disappointment to all of the fans. The novel clearly lacked the drama that gave the first two books such spark. It was so jam packed with action that it was boring. The ending was particualarly unsatisfying in the fact that Katniss’ romantic decision did not please either party (Gale or Peeta-which are you?)Not to mention the terribly depressing note on which the book was left following Prim’s death…To conclude: an unsatisfying cap off to the specaular Hunger Games series.
