I don't know a lot about the different cultures in the Muslin world. This book is perfect to have any high school library to bring diversity of all cultures in to the access of reading teens. It also deals with attempted rape and how the victim feels. It's a good book. I'm adding it to my library.

I liked this book because it is balanced with groups of people who live a life style that has naturally been part of their particular society. Then groups of people in the US who is trying to live healthier lives as a community and the results of changing to a healthier life. It's a good read.
What is a adult book doing in a young adult blog? I'm looking for books to help students but I am also looking for books to help me improve upon being a leader. It's a good book. Not for high school libraries because it would be over the students head. But it is good if you have teachers, staff and other people that you are working with.

I really liked this book. It was inspirational and I know i would like to get for my high school library. I'm adding it to my shopping list. Oprah, if you catch this blog, would you write something personal in the book for our students?
I liked this book and will get for my high school library. The characters learn a lot about life, relationship and the responsibility of money management. There's romance and friendship. There is the loss by death of parents and being raised by family, there is the dad with the gambling addiction that affects the lives of family as well. The characters grow from teens to young adults and learn to see life with new lenses. Enjoy.

I ended up liking this book. Part romance and all dystopian, imagine the government controlling every element in your life. Imagine the government hiding everything. Imagine having so many clones that look like you and you are the one that is completely different. Imagine a new possibility.

This story is a modern contemporary years later mesh of the human world and Wonderland. Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Alice in Wonderland and you'll have a modern adventure. Fine for high school libraries. Enjoy.

I love a good murder mystery. This is set in England, out in a little town. I love the dynamics of the characters in this book and Agatha always almost ends up nearly getting killed. Enjoy.

This is a perfect gift for those looking for inspiration for themselves or for others. It's based on a speech given for graduation. It is heartfelt and brilliant. Enjoy.
I loved the Uglies series. I've had to replace those books in my high school library twice. Now there is a new series an it's just as good. I'm looking forward to book 2. Scott Westerfeld don't leave me waiting. Hurry up and print up book 2 to this new series. Enjoy.
I like this series. I have the first two books in my high school library. I liked the audiobook as well. It reads at a good pace, lots of adventures, twists and turns and dangers. It's a good read. Enjoy. Fine for high school libraries.

I enjoyed this story because it reminds me of Bass Lake and Oakhurst. I have a feeling the area was an inspiration for the story. It's fine for high school libraries. I get the question, Do you have any romance for teens? This is the book to offer up. Enjoy.
A modern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Set in Brooklyn five sisters encounter the Darcy family. A well to do family. As ideas change and our two central characters grow to learn about each other, you will see the parallels between the classic and this modern retelling. enjoy.
The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future by Chris Guillebeau
This is a good story and fine for high school library. There is the possibility of a love interest with one of the girls interested in the other girl. Everything is forbidden in camp life with guards and no privacy. No freedom and family dynamics infused in a way of life that is different then regular life once the families are fenced in. It's a good book.
The audiobook is a great listen to and the story is perfect for those who enjoy mythology. If you enjoy Rick Riordan's work then add this to your book shelf. Set in New Mexico, in current times and the fantasy adventure begins with Mayan gods and prophecies. Enjoy. Fine for any school library.
I enjoyed this fantasy a lot but I don't think that I would put it in a high school library. There are a few scenes in the story that might be a bit much. It's perfect for public libraries and personal libraries. Enjoy.

I liked this book. Is it for everyone? No but I think I will put it in my high school. There is one problem when Darius becomes self conscious about his body. He is half of two different cultures. It's an excellent book on so many levels.
How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind: Dealing with Your House's Dirty Little Secrets by Dana K. White
I liked this book about organizing life and home. It's honest and funny and some good perspectives. I will have to check out her blog. Enjoy.
Backstories on various characters in a short story version written by multiple authors. It's a good read. On the image are several of the different stories. These are just a sample of what to enjoy.
Xmen meets Lord of the Flies with this series. Now adults can look in and see if their child has survived or not. Lots of violence and death. The series is a dark series but it's a good one. The series is fine for high school libraries.
It's Xmen meets Lord of the Flies and throw in a bit of Stephen King. It's a dark dystopian story of an alien, a group of kids with out adults and trying to survive. There is some violence but it is fine for high school libraries.
It's a modern telling of Xmen meets the Lord of the Flies. Heads up there is violence in the struggle to survive, finding food and water and beware of Drake. A kid who is out to kill with his arm that has been turned into a whip. He is unstoppable.

It's a different book and a different style of story telling. Perhaps not for everyone but I think some readers will enjoy. Fine for high school libraries. I think the second book is stronger then the first. Enjoy.
I liked the book and would think about putting it in my high school library as a resource. Or for a writing club for kids/teens. It's a helpful resource.
