Between the Lines – Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer
Review By: Kaylee H.
Between the Lines is Jodi Picoult’s very first Young Adult novel and it was incredible! I couldn’t stop reading it. Joe Picoult wrote Between the Lines with her daughter Samantha Van Leer. It is about a teen girl who is obsessed with a fairytale book. She loves it because she can relate to the prince in the book. One day she’s reading the story and noticed that something had changed in one of the pictures in the book. She finds out that the main character (a teen prince) is real and wants to escape the story. She helps him create a plan to get him out of the book and into real life. This story was amazing and I highly suggest you read it too!
The Night She Disappeared – April Henry
Review By: Elizabeth
I just recently read “The Night She Disappeared” by April Henry. This book is a suspenseful mystery and I loved it. I think the age is a teen read. It was a shorter book but it was very exciting from the beginning to the end. I would definitely recommend this book to any teen reader!
Pigboy – Vicki Grant
Review By: Robin A.
The other day I finished reading a book called Pigboy by Vicki Grant. It was short-101 pages- but interesting. I personally didn’t enjoy the book as much as some of the other short mysteries I’ve read lately, but it was OK. Out of 5 I would rate this book 2.5 – 3 stars. I would recommend this book to anyone above the age of 11 or 12 -to people who enjoy mystery and don’t mind slightly graphic details. If you are going to read this book, I hope you enjoy it!
