Teen Reviews: In Cold Blood

This is one of those books that most people have probably heard of. It investigates the gruesome murder of a family living in a tiny Kansas town, the search for their killers, and the process of the trial of the century. It is written in the style of a novel, so you get inside the […]

Teen Reviews: Love Scene, Take Two

This was a great book. Not exactly what I was expecting when I picked it up, and we’ll get to why in a bit, but a great book. This is the sort of book that makes me shout at the characters and laugh out loud as I read. Teddy and Bennett are great characters – […]

Beloveded characters return, and you truly see Apollo’s growth as a character from the beginning of the […]

I picked up this book thinking it was going to be about how anger can be used as a power. When I started reading I was surprised about what it was about. It is about a boy who lives in a run down town and has to deal with police brutality in schools. I could […]

Teen Reviews: Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World

This book was something beautiful. It’s hard to find a good LGBT+ book, but this one really, really is. Ivy is relatable, she’s someone with problems and needs, she’s someone who smiles when she thinks she should, even though she doesn’t want too. She’s figuring out who she is, just like all of us. When […]
