"The Mysterious Benedict Society" reviewed by Mary Anne on May 30, 2008

The Mysterious Benedict Society
Author: 
Trenton Lee Stewart
Genre: 
sci-fi
Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 
Good science fiction never fails to grasp the reader and hold them tightly until the story is over, and sometimes longer than that. If you are a sci-fi fan, The Mysterious Benedict Society, by Trenton Lee Stewart, won’t disappoint you. It will captivate you immediately with its exciting plot. You won’t be able to put it down, because of Stewart’s cleverly-placed surprises that you will run into throughout the story when you least expect them. Thrilling foreshadowing only adds to the suspense. Every character is unique and interesting. Stewart does an excellent job challenging the characters, and also the reader, with tricky puzzles and riddles. Some sci-fi books are breathtaking when you first read them, but the thrill often ends with the story. In contrast, The Mysterious Benedict Society’s message of children’s importance to the world will not soon be forgotten. This is definitely a book worth reading. I recommend it to everyone, especially older kids and sci-fi fans. If you enjoy The Mysterious Benedict Society, you'll probably like the sequel, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey.

Title: 
Being
Author: 
Kevin Brooks
Genre: 
sci-fi
Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 
I really, really, really enjoyed this book...until the end. Kevin Brooks, as usual, was fantastic. I will read anything he writes, which is good because he is always switching genres. I was captivated with the story and the characters until the last page. I couldn't put it down. But the ending was rushed and left me rather annoyed and angry. Being is, to put it frankly, the story of a boy named Robert who discovers that he is not like the rest of us. He is made up of something other then bones and organs. This is discovered when he goes to the doctor for a check-up. The rest of the book is spent trying to evade some strange men in suits who want him. The novel is also smattered with some romance and thoughts on life and growing up.

Don't let this review turn you off Kevin Brooks. His other novels are wonderful.
Would you recommend this book?: 
I would have had you asked me half way through it, but I wouldn't now.

Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 
Dana’s father was taking her away from Ireland. To Canada, of all places! Until one day, in a forest near by, she met a Lady. A fairy queen, or an odd, homeless girl? Whoever she was, she wants Dana to undertake a task. In return, she would be granted her heart’s desire. Dana decides to take the quest, and embarks on an adventure bigger then she ever imagined. A creature who follows in her footsteps, trying to kill her makes it all the more difficult. Full of Fairies, saints, magic, and lore. This isn’t a “normal” fairytale, but rather one steeped in Celtic folktales, stories from the past. Set in modern Ireland, this is a gorgeous, haunting tale of a girl who steps forward to meet her destiny, whatever that may be.
Similar authors or titles?: 
The Hunter's Moon, and The Summer King are a part of The Chronicles of Faerie, as is this book. All of these can be read alone, with little to no reference to past characters.
Would you recommend this book?: 
I'd recommend this book to teens (or adults) who love fantasy, and/or Celtic folk and fairy tales.

"The Ordinary Princess" reviewed by Gina on January 8, 2008

Title: 
The Ordinary Princess
Author: 
M.M. Kaye
Genre: 
romance
Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 
As the seventh daughter, everyone had expected Princess Amethyst Alexandra Augusta Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne to be the most beautiful of her sisters. (Who were all tall, willowy blondes with the fairest skin.) Instead, she was...ordinary. So ordinary, in fact, that no prince can be convinced to wed her, much to the dismay of her royal parents. Princess Amy, though, didn’t mind in the least. She did, however, mind when she overheard her mama and papa plotting a way to coerce a prince into marrying her. (Involving a dragon, a tower, and lots of damsel in distress-ing she wasn’t too keen on doing.) So she ran away. Living in a forest seemed like a perfectly good idea at first, especially with her new friends Peter Aurelious (a crow) and Mr. Pemberthy (a squirrel). Until her clothes began falling apart. Thanks to a suggestion from her fairy godmother, Amy decided to seek work at the castle of King Algernon of Ambergeldar, until she had saved up enough for a new dress. One day, she met a very ordinary man-of-all-work, or so he called himself. They became friends, and…was she falling in love? Of course, appearances can be deceiving, as she soon found out! This is a delightful and funny story of a Princess who decided to take her destiny into her own hands, even though it ends up being compleatly different then she expected. Fairly short, well written, and full of quirky, original characters I think anyone would love.
Would you recommend this book?: 
Absolutely~! This book can be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys a good fairy tale.
