Book Club Book Reviews - written by students, for students!

Matched is a book about a girl named Cassia who has always trusted the Society, what to read, what to watch, even with her Match. When she goes to her Match Banquet she sees her best friend, Xander’s, face on the screen until it shows another person she knows face. Ky Markham. As they slowly fall in love, Cassia starts to wonder if it was to be her destiny with Ky or Xander. Who will she choose? Will it be Xander or Ky? Will she go with the Society’s choice or go on her own? Read the rest of series to find out. If you like Dystopia this series would be great for you and your friends.

Cirque Du Freak

This is a great series with a compelling story. It follows the young Darren Shan as he is cursed with the life of a vampire as a trade to save his best friend. Soon Darren will join the Cirque Du Freak, a freak show that showcases many “talented” people including Gertha Teeth, Ramsus Twobellies, and Alexander Ribs. He must also face off with the vampaneze, the evil “cousins” of the vampires. I think many young readers will enjoy this great work of Darren Shan and take away many things from the series.

Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment (first in the series) by James Patterson is about six kids: Max, Fang, Angel, Iggy, Gazzy, and Nudge.  They have wings and people that are called "erasers" are trying to kill them.  The author describes the kids by their age and their powers.  They are experiments, and "the doctors" want to use their DNA for making more experiments.  I recommend this book to people that like fantasy and are looking for a good book to read.
