Teen Book Reviews Contributed by Briana R.

I read this book, Fast Friends, by Julia De Villers. This book is about a girl named Maddy Sparks who loves to hang out with her friends. One day, her and her mom went to the mall to shop back to school clothes. She went to the restroom for fixing her hair, and once she knew it, she was trapped inside the girls' restoom by the jammed door. Inside of the restroom, she meets three other girls. Thye talked and became friends. Soon after the door was unjammed, they met together again at Limited Too. One of the owners came to the girls saying they were nice and funny. She asked them if they would help out with the store. She called them the TOO Crew. Throughout the book, they go through fun times with shooting magazine photos and many other adventures. I would recommend this book because you can identify with the characters and it has an interesting storyline.

I also read this book, Star Struck, by Julia De Villers. This is about a girl named Maddy Sparks and her new friends. They all together are called the TOO Crew. They are sent to Hollywood by Limited Too to watch a show called the Zoe Zone, being filmed. They meet a contestant winner that won a contest by Limited Too. She gets to be on the Zoe Zone show. They become friends with the contestant winner and she then becomes one of the girls in the TOO Crew. They all have fun in Hollywood , and they soon come back to their homes in Ohio after a long week of fun. I would recommend this book because you can relate to the girls in the TOO Crew, and that this book has an interesting storyline.

Shelby S.: Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Review: Twilight is a thrilling novel about vampire Edward Cullen and human Bella Swan who fall in love and battle off other vampires who find Bella appetizing! I would definitely recommend this book to someone else! :-)

'Lover Avenged' by J.R. Ward - Book Review

Lover Avenged by J. R. Ward

I've read the entire Black Dagger Brotherhood series so far and was not looking forward to this book b/c I was disappointed with the last 2. This was sooooo much better than those. Maybe it's b/c the author has re labeled these as "urban fantansy" rather than "paranormal romance" and I had different expectations.

Lover Avenged flowed better than previous attempts to be the Suzanne Brockman of the paranormal world so the different story lines weren't as choppy. This story focused on Rehvenge and his bad sympath-self and the struggles he faces being 2 different people, a loving son and brother to his family and a scary drug dealing/pimping/ head bashing night club owner. He finds peace with the help of a lady vamp who brings out more of his vampire instincts thereby squashing most of his sympath urges. It's not quite Chloe's effect on Doomsday in Smallville, but close.

Xhex and John have their storyline and most fans will be glad to see John finally man-up even though it's due to his heart being broken and him being sick of being a victim. (I still don't think this is a final mate match for these 2, we'll see)

Tohr is slowly coming out of his depression and trying, trying to live again.

Wrath is dealing w/ a major issue that is going to be tough for him. I'm interested to see how this plays out.

Hope you enjoy it.
