The audio book is great. This is a thriller meshed with murder, mystery, science and politics and throw in some of romance. The story continues of the Austin Family Chronicles. Fine for any middle or high school library and good for public and personal libraries. Enjoy.
I'm enjoy this audio book and the story is delightful. Should be a required reading for middle or high school students. It's about life and growth. Romance and relationships. Well written. A bit vintage but still good. Enjoy.
I loved this book and am going through this series. The audio book excellent. It's part philosophical, part scientific, part environmental and all about life. This series will be welcome in any library, middle, high and public libraries. A great coming of age story.

Just like Alice in Wonderland chasing a rabbit to destiny, Neverfall also chases a rabbit into chaos and away from her sheltered world. Underground is not safe, wines that can make you forget, a master thief and lies that float around as truths. It's a good read. I think fine for middle school. The beginning is slow but wait till you get to the end! Enjoy.
I listened to the audio book and decided to stick with it. I'm glad I did. It's not an easy story to read. At first I thought Olivia was a shallow girl but then you can see that she is a teen in need. Would I put it in the library? I think I would. It's an important read.
I already have the first two in my high school library, this will be another one to add. It's a solid series and great various characters, each with their flaws. Danger and mystery color this story intense. Enjoy and also audio book very good.
A friend told me about this book. She said it was great. I listened to the audio book and will get for my high school library. It's intense and I love that it has all the 80's reference. Enjoy this book. Think Tron, Warcross, Ender's Game and other cybergame world books. Enjoy.

This story line has been done many times but this is pretty special. Will I get for my high school library? You betcha. It's a good read and I look forward to Tomi Adeyemi's next book. Enjoy. Audio book also good.
Tron the next generation. This is the newest genre of online gamers who become deep in the cyberspace. James Dashner knows how to tell a suspenseful story. Fine for any school library. Enjoy.
This is book would be perfect for women studies and First Nation studies. Family dysfunction written so vividly. Self understanding and journey makes this a brave story to read. The audio book also very good.
It's a dark and destructive story. It's fine. I think it would work best for personal libraries and public libraries. The audio book is fine. Oh there are some survival of the fittest moments as the group fight of cannibals.
I fell in love with this story. This is one personal story as the author writes about her grandmother. It is well written and never boring. What a life this woman has led. A must read for all grades and adults. I will add to my high school library. The audio book also very good.
Wow, go back in time to Nigeria, 1960's. Lots going on. It's not an easy story as you see this young man struggle with right and wrong. We had this book in the library. Our students read Things Fall Apart so I wanted to read this story. Audio book also good.

Think Tron meets Survival. I kind of liked the series but was disturbed by all the killing that was taking place. Will I buy for the high school library. No. Okay for personal and public libraries. Audio book good.

I'm so getting this for my library. It's good. I'm in line for book 1 but this was available so I was able to hear the audiobook while still waiting for the first one. It's a good read. If you like Ender's Game, War Games and The Last Starfighter, this is for you to enjoy.
This is a great series and more an adult book. I'd say some mature content and dealing with grief. would I put it in a high school library? Probably not but I would say better for personal libraries and public libraries. The audio book is great. It's nice to see the girls as women. I think their ages are in their 30s and they behave at that age. Enjoy.

I'm getting this for my library. History should always be reviewed so that we can learn and make a positive difference. I think this series would be perfect to be added to the White House library. Maybe the librarian at the White House will share this with the presidents who serve this country as a reminder that all people have rights and not focused on a few elite. It's a good way to broaden one's view of what people suffered and sacrificed to make a positive and important difference.

Interesting story and fine for high school. Edgy contemporary teen faes with the weight of the world on them.
This is one very funny book. I also think that it would be a good gift to the leaders who are magically elected to office should read. Fine for any library.
One of the best graphic novels, I have read in a long time. Perfect for any high school library. History brought to life in a way that comes alive in a well crafted graphic novel. The drama and action of the illustrations capture a time that started a change in the US. A must for any school library.
