    A unique read and stashed with some of the most creative world building I've ever encountered, "Zodiac" by Romina Russell is a book you don't want to miss. In the World of the Zodiac, your sign determines where you live, your personality, your looks, and your morals. Rho Grace, your typical 16-year-old who rocks playing the drums, lives on Cancer, a blue planet surrounded by water on all sides. One day, when she and her friends play in a concert, a huge "asteroid" supposedly destroys her home planet. With Cancer's guardian dead, Rho becomes the next Guardian because of her natural ability to "read the stars". But Rho starts seeing visions- visions of the legendary villain Ophicus and visions of a hidden thirteenth house. But as one of the youngest guardians in the galaxy and inexperienced at that, who would ever believe her wild stories? I would rate this book 4/5 stars because even though the plot was brilliant, I still felt that the character building needed some work; especially Rhoma Grace, who felt like an unreal, cliché character. Nonetheless, it is still a hard feat to be able to make a completely different world with different rules, physics, characteristics, etc, and at the same time be able to make the world very relatable to ours. I can't wait to read the sequel!

    5 stars all the way. The plot was so complex and it really represented America's racial problems by using the schism between "predators" and "prey". I thought it was insanely creative and inspirational. It's definitely a movie for all ages and it was really enjoyable/ I didn't want it to end!

    The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen is a heart warming, 9/10, realistic fiction book about Jessica Carlisle, a girl who lost her leg in a bus accident. Despite this injury, she manages to push through high school. Even with the chances of her running career coming to an end Jessica perseveres through it all and manages to find a way to continue her dream of being a great runner. When Jessica is on a bus to a track meet and a man runs into the team, everything is in the panicking state. A girl had just died, everyone is scared, and of course, Jessica had lost her leg. This causes her to have struggles going up the stairs and even just going to the bathroom. But with the help of family, friends, and of course her dog, Sherlock, she stays strong. Then one day with the approach of her track coach comes an opportunity. The chance to run again. Jessica receives an idea that there is prosthetic leg that will help her run again. Read the book to see the wonderful journey that this amazing girl goes through. How hard she pushes, how much she has to handle, and how much the work pays off. Join her as she struggles through the dreaded days of high school with a heartbreaking disability. The Running Dream is great book for any middle schooler. The topic is mature and is a definite must read. The rating given to this book would be a 9/10 because of the amazing plot line and the details make it amazing

    To Jessica, every rhythmic step of the feet is the pulse of her heart. When she runs, she is stronger than the pain gasping up and down her lungs. She is unstoppable. She is free. Then one day, a driver torpedoes his truck into her life, shattering the bones in her left leg beyond repair. Just like that, it was her finish line. She would never run again- or so she thought. A compelling, spunky, and heart-wrenching novel, “The Running Dream” by Wendelin Van Draanen is the inspiring story of a girl who is struck by tragedy. She must face school, depression, and new hardships along with her new “atrocity”. As she must struggle forward, she meets Rosa, a girl with celebral pansy and has never run or walked in her life. She learns that people with “disabilities” just want people to see them for who they are, not their shortcomings. I would give it 5 shining stars- I felt Jessica beating in my heart. I could somehow relate to her- it’s an experience that could happen to anyone, after all.
