    After watching the Maze Runner movies, I was interested enough to want to delve into the books, so I began the adventure with this one. We are immediately thrown into the fray, following a kid named Thomas who has no memories, just like every other "shank" in the glade. Dashner creates a mostly fascinating book, with strong characters, and I think he did a good job on it, but it almost feels as if it's missing something. I would say the thing The Maze Runner lacked most of was, as a reader, I somewhat feel a bit detached from the characters. But overall, this was a nice dystopian novel, and I'd recommend to anyone in middle school and above who's looking for a sound read.

    maddyp18's book review was featured in Kid Authors: True Tales of Childhood from Famous Writers (Kid Legends).
    If you like to learn about the authors that wrote some of our favorite books, in an interesting way, this is the book for you. This Kid Authors book is all about the childhood of some of the authors we know and love, told in an interesting way. For instance, did you know that Jeff Kinney (he wrote Diary of a Wimpy Kid), based his books off of read life experience being the middle child? Also, did you know that Beverly Cleary struggled to read growing up? Roald Dahl even based his book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" off his love and fascination of candy as a child. There are so many interesting facts in this book, and many exciting stories, too. With great illustrations and funny quips, this fiction book is a must-read!

    maddyp18's book review was featured in Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow.
    This book is such a great fantasy novel, you just have to read it. Morrigan Crow is cursed, and she is blamed for all the accidents or unlucky incidents that happen in her town. She is also doomed to die on her 11 birthday at midnight. But then, on the night of her birthday, a strange man named Jupiter comes and takes her away from her home in a huge two-story-high brass pod, far away from her dull family, narrowly escaping death. They arrive in the secret, magical, colorful city Nevermoor, where Morrigan learns that Jupiter has chosen her to compete in four difficult trials to get into the incredible 'Wundrous Society' which Jupiter himself is in. There she learns that getting into the Wundrous Society isn't going to be as easy as it sounds, as she's competing against more then 500 kids, and she's expected to have a talent that makes her special, when she's sure that she doesn't. Will Morrigan discover her talent that Jupiter assures her she has, or will she fail the talent trial, and get sent back to her old home, where she's doomed to die. Read the book to find out what happens next. If you really like reading fantasy novels, this is the book for you, with just the right amount of action, emotion, and wit. I'm hoping there will be a sequel, because I can't get enough of this story, and I couldn't put it down when I was reading it. This story takes you away to another world, and you really care about the characters. I recommend this book to kids in late elementary and middle school.
