Couldn't put it down.

Travis "Solo" Stephenson is on leave after a tour in Afghanistan. Although his room looks exactly like he left it, little things in his life are no longer the same. There's tension between his parents, his little brother "stole" his girlfriend and his car, and he just can't escape...

Perfect in every way!

I loved this book. It starts off with Honor at her brother's funeral so of course it's going to be sad. Throughout the novel Honor, with the help of some unlikely friends, learns to deal with the loss of her brother Finn and come to terms with her grief....

This was a quick read, mainly because you just keep turning the pages! It's a unique plot-line: high schoolers are trapped in their school when a blizzard blankets the area. If you are looking for a light, cheery book this is not for you. But if you like a realistic,...

Classic...but still great!

I don't know about you but when I hear the word classic to describe a YA book I'm a little weary. I don't want to read a novel written in the 1920s, it'll be weird, how will I ever understand what's happening?! These thoughts flit through my mind but I...

Fan of the movie, fan of the book!

I've seen the movie Pay It Forward multiple times so when my english teacher suggested we read the novel for book club I was excited. Although there are some differences between the book and movie (Reuben's ethnicity, Arlene's problem with alcohol, and the heartbreaking final events) I think the...
