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

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.
