Break (by Moskawitz)

Rating 4

This book created a lot of suspense. The main character wanted to break his bones and throughout the novel you discover the reasons why and follow him through change. You learn of his dysfunctional family that almost any teen can relate to in some way. I would definitely recommend this book!

Fat Angie (by E. E. Charlton-Trujillo)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Elizabeth, Corporate Parkway TAB

Fat Angie has never felt pretty. Between her dysfunctional home life and her missing military sister in Iraq, Angie does not have much to look forward to in life. Then, mysterious new girl KC Romance comes to school and Angie's world is thrown upside-down. Fat Angie is a good book about a coming of age, overcoming pain, making new friends, and falling in love. I would recommend this basketball, LGBT novel to all young adults.

Unwholly (by Neal Shusterman)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Christine, Spencer staff

This is the second book in the Unwind Trilogy by Neal Shusterman.  It has been at least 4 years since I read the first book the in series, but I was able to pick up with Conner, Lev & Risa fairly quickly.  I love these characters.  Dystopian fiction at it's best!  Society has decided that the answer to the war on abortion is to allow parents to have their children "unwound" between the ages of 13 and 17.
