Son of a Witch
Author
Gregory Maguire
Review
A beautifully written and thought provoking book, Son of a Witch is the second book in the Wicked series. Though it was detailed and proved Maguire to be one of the best written authors of this time, it was not as good as the first book otherwise known as Wicked.   Find it in the catalog!

Shadow and Bone
Author
Leigh Bardugo
Review
Alina is a young orphan that originally resides in the army as a scrawny, weak, and relatively untalented mapmaker. On her first trip through the dangerous Fold, she is attacked by the monsters that live there and an untapped power is released from within herself to saved her loved ones from the monsters evil clutches. (The most important one she wants to save being love interest Mal, her childhood friend that's a bit of a player).
After this incident occurs, she is taken to join the Grisha as the Sun Summoner, this is what the story is mostly featured around, how she changes and becomes accustomed to the new palace life, along with her actual being able to hone her abilities without relying on others too much.
With a somewhat predictable plot line and fairly decent character development this story is unique in its own right.
I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a good and relatively quick read (although its 356 pages, it reads quick,) especially if one is interested in the fantasy/action genres.  Find it in the catalog!

The Fault in our Stars
Author
John Green
Review
The Fault in our Stars is a amazingly written, inspiringly beautiful, page turning, metaphor filled, thought provoking, and heart wrenchingly sad book that I could read again and again. John Green never ceases to amaze me as all of his books are counted among my favorites.  Find it in the catalog!

Graduation Day
Author
Joelle Charbonneau
Review
Personally, this was a great ending to The Testing series. The main character, Cia ends up having to do something really shocking,and completely against her beliefs. As for the book itself, it was very suspenseful and full of plot twists. The ending was definitely satisfying. Overall, a fantastic read for the summer, but make sure to read The Testing and Graduation Day first!  Find it in the catalog!
