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!

Catching Fire
Author
Suzanne Collins
Review
This book is so amazing and so action packed. The only problem is you need to read the Hunger Games first. It isn't as good as Catching Fire but it explains everything and is still interesting. Catching Fire is the best and most action packed novel written by Suzanne Collins.  Find it in the catalog!
