Teen Book Review — Chasing Lincoln’s Killer

Title: Chasing Lincoln’s Killer
Author: James L. Swanson
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: This book talks about the assassination of President Lincoln by James Wilkes Booth. It explains who hje was and how he killed the President, and then how the police chased him. He outsmarted the government and police while evading them. And then the book explains why he is still popular to learn about today. I would say that people who like action, adeventure, and a little bit of gore would like this book.

Teen Book Review — A Black Hole is not a Hole

Title: A Black Hole Is Not a Hole
Author: Carolyn Cinami DeCristofano
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: This book gives fun facts about black holes; their size, shape, and activities. There is a focus on how Albert Einstein decided that they existed and how he determined to prove that. The facts and discoveries go up to the current time. I think people who like humor, science, and technology would like this book.

Teen Book Review — Divergent

Title: Divergent
Author: Veronica Roth
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: I was mostly motivated to read this book so that I could see the movie, but I found that I would have gladly read it otherwise. I found the concept of a faction interesting and there was never a dull moment. The beginning is a little rough and it looks like a long and scary book, but don’t worry! Read the whole thing… You won’t regret it.

Teen Book Review — The Selection

Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: This was a really good book because it had a lot of feeling in it, you knew what the main character, America was feeling all the time which is great. I also liked how you can see how much America changes over the course of the book. I really liked America’s personality. Even though she is a little stubborn she won’t back down when she wants something and I liked that.

Teen Book Review — The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Title: The Invention of Hugo Cabret
Author: Brian Selznick
Stars (out of 5): 4
Review: Reading this book is more of an art experience than a reading experience. The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a quick read, although it may not look like it at first. The book is mostly pictures, but instead of just flipping through the pictures, you might want to take a longer look at them. My favorite part was when Hugo told Isabelle the truth about the automaton and where he lived. I think that readers of any age would enjoy this book, but you might have to be older to really understand it.

Teen Book Review — Let it Snow

Title: Let It Snow
Author: John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: Who would have thought that three best-selling authors would work together to create a really great book? This was one of the first REAL romance stories I have ever read and, guess what? I think I’m going to read it again. Right now. Even though I just finished it. I really liked how, at the end, all of the stories interconnected and I really realized how connected all of the stories really were. I also really liked how adult they made the Christmas and being stranded in a snow storm theme. Overall, I had my doubts, but this is absolutely going on my list of all time favorites.
