between shades of gray

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

The reason why I liked this book is because it was quite intense but I also found it sad because a lot of the people were suffering and they were really good people and were held captive even though they weren’t criminals.  I loved how Lina was so determined to stay alive and move back to her home country with her little brother Jonas, even though both of her parents had died.  I was really happy that in the end Lina was able to go back and marry a boy she had met in the camp but had been separated by him.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs was a fantastic book.  It starts out with sixteen-year-old Jacob witnessing his grandfather’s death at the claws of a monster he had always been warned of.  Jacob sets off to discover his grandfather’s mysterious World War 11 roots – 70 years in the past.  He must visit a mysterious island, make new friends, and battle evil creatures in this new world.  I would recommend Miss Peregrine’s for anyone who wants to have an extraordinary adventure.

Dear George Clooney Please Marry My Mom  by Susin Nielsen

This book is hilarious, intriguing and captivating. This book is about a girl named Violet whose dad left the family to start fresh one with another wife and brand new children. Violet will never forgive him. Meanwhile Violet’s mother is heartbroken so she dates a man named Dudley Wiener. Violet thinks her mom deserves better, and she thinks George Clooney is the man. Can Violet get a hold of George Clooney? This novel is a realistic fiction because it’s written like you’re in the book. I would recommend this book to people who like drama and lot’s of comedy. This is also a book that is suitable for quite young readers. I enjoyed this book a lot.
