It is so good, but so sad. Its about slaves and how cruel slavery was. Each person in the book talks about they're side of view about a slave auction. You should read it!!

This is a great example of historical fiction. Walter Dean Myers describes violent scenes without glorifying the concept. It is about a common soldier in the Vietnam War. The author describes the fear and tension of war accurately. This is a great book that starts slow but builds throughout the story.

Girl In A Cage is about a girl, she is captured and put in a small iron cage. This book is a little boring in the beginning and sometimes hard to understand. But, overall this book is a great adventurous, page turner! I strongly suggest this book to readers who like history books and adventure books! Great Book!

Hysterical story about knights, love and chivalry turned upside-down. For veteran Morris fans, favorite characters make a reappearance. For newbies, colorful characters and an exciting storyline make for a great read!

I found The Other Boleyn Girl to be a great book that I couldn't put down, even with its daunting 661 pages. It details the life of Mary Boleyn, the sister of Anne Boleyn, who was one of the six wives of Henry VIII. She is the favorite of Henry VIII, but is then pushed away in order to make room for her sister Anne. The story seems very real, in that you are there with the characters, and was an interesting glimpse into the life of English royalty in the 1500s. You should definitely read it!

Rose in Bloom is the sequel to Eight Cousins and continues the story of Rose Campbell. Rose returns to Aunt Hill after traveling the world only to find that everyone expects her to settle down and get married, but Rose wants to be an independent woman first. I loved this book! Rose really develops as a character and the story kept me reading. It is a romantic story with a perfect ending to the story of Rose Campbell.

This book is about a girl who lives in Philadelphia in the year 1793, when the Yellow Fever breaks out. I really like this book because the author uses a lot of detail and captures your attention from the start.

A classic is always an interesting read. While most classic's (at least out of Austen's novels) range on romantic notions, this one was actually quite brilliant. Elizabeth captured my heart with her ignorance from day one, but her place in my heart was immediately filled with Mr. Darcy when I met him. Jane Austen did an excellent job describing the characters. Read it. It's better than most.

This book gives its reader a very interesting look at Nazi Germany. It tells the story of a German girl and what the war did to her life. It was possibly the saddest book I have ever read and I highly recommend it.

True to form, Eva Ibbotson has crafted a very lovable, innocent main character who overcomes adversity in war torn Europe and spreads her infectious optimism to those around her. This book is full of close calls, daring escapes, and the touching story of countries coming together through children. It was very descriptive and had many side stories to develop the characters, which I liked, but others may find boring.

In "The Wolving Time," a family of werewolves, including teenage Laszlo, must cope with the persecution of Medieval France. I chose this book mostly because it takes place in southern France, but the setting isn't mentioned much. The characters aren't very deep, but it's a fun, quick read (about 190 pages). The action moves quickly and it offers insight into what drives people to persecute their own neighbors and friends.
