This book was so good! A thought-provoking tale about humanity and evolution. If someone was a fan of mutation stories like X-men or Miss Peregrine, I would definitely recommend it to them :)

I loved this book. As in, I started reading at about 10 in the morning and finished it in 3 hours. I could not put it down! We hear about trolls on the internet a lot, but this book really gives you a look into the life of a girl, Maxi, who is seriously affected by this bullying. The whole time you're reading you are pulled in by the story. Will she be able to handle her family drama? Will she figure out who the troll is? Will she have a stable relationship with her hot French boyfriend?! Read this book to find out! If I had stars to give, this would get all five.

Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey, 2017

Reviewer rating: 5 stars

Young Adult Fiction, 258 pages

This book was great. It's a look inside the mind of a girl with serious social anxiety. She can't even leave her house. Until someone nominates her for homecoming queen. She plans on brushing it off, obviously nominated as a joke, until she realizes the prize for winning the queenship is money she really, really needs. With the help of her best friend and her brother, she has to overcome her anxiety and WIN. I would definitely recommend this to any teen who wants to learn more about what it's like for someone with anxiety and enjoys a good, adorable romance

I loved this. This is the story of Danielle, a girl who is all prepped to go to her dream school and get an awesome life. Until she flunks English. Suddenly everything has changed. Disappointed parents, a new job, and the reappearance of an old crush are only the beginning of her problems. If you want a funny read with lots of fluff, this is a great book for you.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, 2013

reviewer rating:  5 stars

Young Adult Fiction, 328 pages

Eleanor and Park is a heartwarming masterpiece that I would recommend to any young adult that enjoys a gratifying story of a love between two young high-school students that may seem unconventional but compatible in their attempt to live in a place where abuse, racism, bullying and body image are all challenges that they face in their daily lives. With a riveting twist and story-line, I would suggest this book to anyone. Along with a unanticipated ending, this book left an impact on me and showed me more than just a plain simple love story, but more of a unique and exceptional point of view.
