peter and the star catchers

Peter and the star catchers is a very well written story. It is a twist on Peter Pan and keeps you on your toes. It is not inappropriate which makes it nice for younger readers. I would recommend it to anyone of any age. It opens with Peter and his friends setting sail on a not so nice ship with a not so nice crew. He meets a girl named Molly and they work together to keep a chest full of very valuable "stuff" away from a vicious pirate. Now I won't elaborate any further because than it will just ruin the surprise. Have fun reading!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Arthur Dent was living a normal human life- well, as normal as lying in the mud in front of a bulldozer can get- when Ford Prefect, Arthur's friend from work- claims that the earth is about to be destroyed! Seconds before the earth is wiped out to make room for an intergalactic freeway, Ford saves Arthur by getting him off the doomed planet. He then reveals himself as the researcher for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy- an encyclopedia on, well, everything- and the fact that Ford is an alien! The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a different kind of book- one that brings you on a mind-bendingly odd adventure through the quirks of the universe. I recommend this book to any teens who want to change up their reading a little and read a book that is a bit weirder than the rest. Happy hitchhiking!

Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25

All humans, whether we realize it or not, generate electricity to help power our body and keep our cells alive. Michael Vey, however, is a powerhouse in a world of batteries. He has the power to generate enormous amounts of electricity, a secret that only his mom and best friend Ostin know. Michael is going to school, trying to keep a low profile, when he meets Taylor- a cheerleader with electrical gifts of her own- and together Michael, Ostin, and Taylor uncover secrets about their past and the mistake that created them. Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 is a fast moving, interesting story that would be a great book for readers that just want to read for enjoyment. It keeps making you ask questions, and the answers might shock you!
