Tess Gerritsen is now officially my new favourite crime novelist!
'Die again' - while I suspected it to be cheesy and predictable - was actually anything but! Right up until the last chapter, I had no idea who the killer was, and the narrative flowed so smoothly I barely even noticed that I was staying up til the early morning hours to read 'just one more page'.
After a prestigious taxidermist is brutally killed, Rizzoli and Isles have to find the killer - but while on his tracks, they seem to be finding more and more bodies that are connected to the killer. Their hunt takes Rizzoli all the way to the African bush, and Maura has to face some truths about herself and who she is.
This book is fantastically written! It's full of action packed passages worth savoring. Full of killer twists and turns, this book will leave the reader aching for the sequel. This emotional book will make your heart race, palms sweat and eyes cry! Highly recommended. - Sue M
A funny, laugh out loud book about a boy who is trying to stand out from his six siblings by breaking a world record with the help of some pidgeons!
A magical book of advice from the great wizard - Merlin! A gem of inspiration that will encourage readers of all ages to live life to the fullest!
What a great book!
It's just the right amount of scary that will make you want to avoid mirrors at night, but not leave you unable to sleep. There's lots of great history about Mary, and an idea of what might happen if she really did show up in your mirror. I also loved that there's no unrealistic happy ending where no one has to deal with the consequences of a stupid idea. I think the realism of it contributes a lot to how scary it is. I wouldn't recomment this to scaredycats under 12 years.
Roan is just another ordinary kid attending Jedi Academy and boy, is he ready! This year, Roan gets to fly in the flight simulators at school, and with promise ahead, Roan can't wait to start! Brimming with fun, relatable problems, the Jedi Academy is just like normal school (with a few differences). A great graphic novel, this book will thrill and excite young readers! Enjoy, and may the force be with you! -Morgan
This book opened my eyes to bullying, the different types of bullying, and the pain that Paige had to go through. Paige Rawl was (and continues to be) ordinary, but slightly different - Paige has HIV. This memoir tells Paige's journey to accept herself, fight the bullying, and educate people about her disease. You are immersed in an experience both 'deeply personal and completely universal'. I was brought to tears by her continuous battle. I hope you are too. - Morgan
Kevin is 'the glue holding the family together' - but what a crazy family! Kevin doesn't know what he is getting himself into when he proposes a plan to have a double wedding at their house, and ivites his giant, loud, uncooperative relatives to join them. Gary Paulsen does it again in this fun, crazy story of a boy on a mission to keep things from spiralling out of control. A must read for all Gary paulsen fans! - Morgan

But when Alfie dies one night under mysterious circumstances at the scene of another robbery, March is left alone - with a bag full of clues and a twin sister! Impressing us yet again after the 39 clues, Watson draws in the reader with her flair and twisting plots. A must-read! - Morgan
A classic Romeo and Juliet story. Life couldn't get much worse. Then she meets Austin Waters, a boy with enough heart to move mountains and a spirit that could truly save Hazel. And they fall in love. The fault in our Stars is Greens star. I bawled, laughed and giggled as he spun his masterpiece before my eyes. I finished it in two hours - I could not stop reading! Thank you, John Green. - Morgan
