Shooting KabulShooting Kabul by N.H. Senzai

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shooting Kabul is probably one of the most loving and compassionate novels I have ever read. A family living in Afghanistan during the time when the Afghans and the Soviet Union were at war. With the Taliban threatening everyone, Fadi's family decides to leave Afghanistan illegally. They travel to Jalalabad to catch a ride to Peshawar, Pakistan. When the truck arrives to take them to Peshawar, Maraim, Fadi's little sister, is left behind, due to Fadi's mistake of letting go of her hand. The rest of the family makes it safely but they are worried about Mariam.

After a couple of weeks later Fadi joins a photo club where a competition takes place. It includes a photo shoot in India or Africa. Fadi uses this as his chance to get Mariam back and reclaim his honor. Will he succeed, or will his honor be lost forever?

SmileSmile by Raina Telgemeier

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. It puts a classic twist on the normal braces issue. Raina is a normal sixth grader who just wants to live a normal life. Even though she is getting braces she wants to at least try to have fun. But one night when racing her friends, she falls down and knocks out all her teeth. Now she has to deal with even more problems. Raina has a great personality and has a great mind. Even though she went through some pretty tough times she was strong and pushed right through. I loved the book and my sister loved the book and I hope you love it too. ENJOY!!!!!! :) :) :)

This book was very good but also very sad. It is about a girl named Caitlin who is diagnosed with Aspergers symtom. She was very close to her brother Devon. But when Devon, was shot in a school shooting, Caitlin and her dad are having a hard time with the loss of Devon. They are never happy and her Dad is always crying, begging for Devon to come back. But when Caitlin finds something that may help her family, she will stop at nothing to recover her family. Watch as these two people find a way to becoming a family again.

The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)The Maze Runner by James Dashner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Maze Runner is a fast paced action novel that stimulates your imagination. In the story, a boy named Thomas has been sent to the Glade where many other people have been sent with their memories wiped. They are all trapped here in the Glade where if the Gladers can make it out of the Maze they can return home. The next day after Thomas's arrival, a girl shows up. She is the only girl here and everyone has become suspicious of Thomas. Will Thomas regain his memory? Or is he stuck here forever? In this story of action you will find that it gives readers a nice book to read after reading the Hunger Games series.
