Catching Fire (by Suzanne Collins)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Hope, grade 8

I really liked Catching Fire because it's one of those books where you don't want to stop reading because you're in constant suspense.  In this book, Katniss Everdeen has already won the Hunger Games, but now she is facing something even scarier than anything that coudl happen in an arena.  Her trick to save Peeta in the arena has created a "spark" in the districts and there has been talk of rebelling against the Capitol.  Can Katniss convince everyone that she did it for love, or will there be a rebellion?  Will the "spark catch fire&qu

Catching Fire is the 2nd book of the Hunger Games series.  I loved this book and is my favorite of the series.  This year is the Quarter Quell game.  THis happens every 25 years.  Every year is different.  Like twice the number of tributes!  THis year it's...  well I'll just stop there no need to spoil it for you.  But, I guarantee you will love it just like I did.

The Battle of the Labyrinth (by Rick Riordan)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Kandice, grade 7

This book is about Percy Jackson and his battle.  Percy goes inot the labyrinth with a friend, a cyclop, and a satyr, to try to prevent a war that would destroy Camp Half-Blood.  I like this book because Rick Riordan goes into detail on everything, even what people are wearing.  I also like this book because it involves greek mythology, which talks about Gods and Goddesses, but to small.  Some include Ares (god of war), Poseidon (god of sea), Pan (god of the wild), and Hera (Queen of Heaven).

My Beating Teenage Heart (by Michael Scott)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Ethan, grade 7

All seems lost.  The gold is with the dark elders (or so they think) Once reunited, the silver and gold must beat their parents and destroy the Elders world so that can save the  human world.  They soon discover nothing is as it seems.  Enemies become allies and you can trust no one.

This is a great book, but makes no sense unless you read them in order.
