This novella, is a short murder mystery story. It's an entertaining murder mystery series that I enjoy. Clues are doled out and see if you can solve the mystery along with Jill.

I enjoy this murder mystery series. Set in a small coastal town, like Pismo or around that area. A book store owner solves mysteries. the characters and relationships in this series are fun to know. If you like murder mysteries, you'll enjoy this series.

Sometimes we just need a good mystery with a dog in it. I'm hooked on this series. It's smart and funny. The audio book is also very good. Enjoy this series if you like a good murder mystery.
I love this series, Sage is charming and delightful, there's romance, adventure and travel. It's perfect for high school libraries. Enjoy, this young woman who makes the most of life and enjoys learning oh and libraries.
Think Game of Thrones meets Hunger Games meets magic gone bad. Power plays, political plays and treason all wrapped up in one gift of an intense story line. I have already checked out the next sequel. I'm getting this for the library. It's a good read. Oh heads up a bit of violence in the story.

Disney has a series of teen books written by young adult authors where a particular story is rewritten. This one is Ursula is the one who gets the prince. And she wants more. Fine for high school libraries. Enjoy.

Go back to a magical time when people and the fair folk coexisted. Start an adventure and find a lost creature and face an evil foe. Have fun and enjoy. I would say good for middle school age.
One Plastic Bag: Isatou Ceesay and the Recycling Women of the Gambian by Miranda Paul & illustrated by Elizabeth Zunon
It's a dangerous fairy tale that continues from Spindle Fire. Elements of the Cinderella story has been brought in. It's a good story but I think it will be for a certain niche of readers. Enjoy.
Science Fiction, dystopian world and teens using computers to save the world. It's an intense read. It's good and entertaining but I think this story will appeal to a narrow group of readers. The audio book also good. Enjoy.
I liked this book, there are many good examples of situations and leaders that illustrate concepts that help be better leaders. Good for students, teachers, admin and business leaders. I'm getting this for my high school library. Audio book also very good. Enjoy.
This story is fine for high school libraries. The audio book also is done well. Enjoy.

I like this series and was happy that there are some back stories. It's a smart novel. You don't even have to read the rest of the series since it's a stand alone. It's a good read and fine for high school libraries. Enjoy.

I liked this book and it would be very popular at our high school. I'm a bit concern about all the killing. I think I will pass on a public high school because of the killing. It really is a good book and a bit scary. Reality TV gone bad.

This was on sale at my book fair and I ended up listening to the audio book to see what kind of story line it was. It was good. I enjoyed it. Entertaining and space travel while being chased by the Empire. Of course I am a Stars Wars fan so there you go. It'll be fine for any school library. Enjoy.

It's a good read. A bit on the sexy side. A good personal book or a public library book. I do like the first book in the series. I don't think I'll get for the library but it's fine for personal collections.
It's a good book. Suzy reminds me of someone in the spectrum. She has trouble relating to people, sharing facts that are ill timed or inappropriate. When tragedy strikes, she and her former best friend had a huge falling out. Now she is dealing with grief and students who bully her. It's a good read.

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.
