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!

Feed
Author
M.T Anderson
Review
Feed is a book about a mainstream teenager named Titus, his relationship with an old-fashioned girl named Violet, and their quest to fight large corporations. Everyone in the book has a computer in their head called a Feed, and anyone can send things to anyone else, including advertisements. But what happens when technology changes daily life? The book is a wonderful work of science fiction, and really made me think about the dangers of modern technologies. This book was definitely an enjoyable read for High School summer reading!  Find it in the catalog!
