Blood Red Road by Moira Young

This book is AMAZING, at first I admit I was a little skeptical but, THEN I read it and I loved it!!!! It’s like the Uglies by Scott Westerfeld meets The Hunger Gamesby Suzanne Collins.

It starts out with Saba and her twin brother Lugh. These two are complete opposites not just by appearance but by their attitude. Lugh is outgoing and friendly and Saba is withdrawn and harsh. They live with their crazy father and younger sister. Saba and Lugh and their family live in Silverlake, a dried up wasteland where no one comes or goes. However, four mysterious men show up and take Lugh away from her. She embarks on her journey to get Lugh back.

She encounters some nasty surprises and has to fight for her life. In the process Saba discovers herself and what is tying her down from reaching her goal. She makes allies and she meets a cocky overly confident guy named Jack. She soon discovers that she has the power to change the world as she knows it.

Blood Red Road is a truly inspiring book, filled with adventures, romance and trying to find yourself in the world around you.

Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan

Glow is about two teenagers on a mission to find “New Earth,” because humans destroyed the old one. About a day after they get engaged, they get separated when another ship takes Waverly, the girl. The writing is  good, and the plot is original, although it can get kind of inappropriate at times (if your parents like to know what your reading, I would ask or have them read it first). I would recommend this book to anyone who likes romance novels with action or suspense, like Twilight or The Hunger Games.

The Penderwicks at Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall

The Penderwicks on Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall is the third book in the Penderwicks series. It’s a funny story in which Skye, Jane and Batty go to Point Mouette with their Aunt Claire. Rosalind is on vacation with her friend Anna, leaving Skye to be the OAP (oldest available Penderwick) on Point Mouette. It’s another great story with the Penderwick sisters. I highly recommend it.
