Snail Mail, No More by Paula Danziger & Ann M. Martin
star star star star star
This was the most awesome book ever! I liked how the authors made it so it was letter to letter at first then email to email. There were a lot of interesting things like how Tara* was not so excited about her mom having a baby, then she kept worrying about her mom and the baby. Another interesting thing was how Elizabeths dad kept calling and coming to her house drunk, but then close to the ending her dad died! I would recommend this book to anyone out there!

This book is about a girl named Ruby who moves to Marin county, California where she has to go to school with a bunch spoiled rich girls. I think this book is a good book for girls in middle school or high school.

Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
star star star star star
Spoiler free review: The fourth book in the twilight saga. After the long expected marriage between Edward and Bella, the two go away on a honeymoon. As they spend their honeymoon together, Bella becomes pregnant. The supposed "Immortal Child" is seen by a passing vampire outside of the Cullens, calling upon the Volturi to destroy it. The book was great, but a sequel is greatly needed as it needs to fulfill the questions and cliff hangers left at the end of the book.

Naruto Series by Masashi Kishimoto
star star star star
A highly criticized series mainly because of the great number of people who obsess about it. Also commonly deemed "childish" because many people start reading at the beginning of middle school. The truth is, it is a well written manga series with great art, and action scenes. The only problem is it goes on a lot about friendship and love, which can annoy readers sometimes. In comparison, it is alot better that the show, so try not to judge by that alone. Beware of filler chapters and volume cliff hangers (cliff hangers at the end of volume).

Rurouni Kenshin (Vol 1.) by Nobuhiro Watsuki
star star star star
When i picked this up at the library, i had never even heard of it, but due to my loyalty to "Shonen Jump", i was compelled to read. It turned out to be a great series, with plenty of action scenes, a great story, and great art. the main character is Himura Kenshin, a Rirouni, or wandering swordsman, who used to be an assassin during the great japanese war. he has now shed his violent past and travels for an attempted life of peace, vowing to never kill again.
