The Fault in Our Stars
Author
John Green
Review
John Green has done it again! This wonderfully empowering book tells the story of two cancer patients, with the only thing keeping them satisfied is their love for one another. This novel really grabs hold of the emotions is the reader, and makes the reader contemplate their own life and the many things we all take for granted each and every day. A tragic, but empowering read will leave you speechless and wanting more.  Find it in the catalog!

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!

A Man for All Seasons
Author
Robert Bolt
Review
A man for all seasons is a beautifully written play taking place in a time I find to be particularly fascinating. This play conveys Sir Thomas More having to choose between his obligation to his King and friend Henry VIII and his obligation to his conscience and his self. His virtue and moral compass eventually leading to his ultimate demise.   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!
