    Fay has been locked up for 18 months in the Secure Training Centre. Drug dealing, rip offs, and robbery are the only things this teenager knows. And now she's back on the street?? No way... CHERUB agents Ryan and Ning needs Fay's knowledge to find out more information about the major cocaine drug dealer: Hagar. But Fay had made a lot of enemies and there is no time left for her. This book really has "Cracking tension and high-octane drama", according to Daily Mail. This 330-page novel seemed to suck my soul out while I was turning those pages. I would love to read more books from the CHERUB series or read more books from this author. I really admire the feeling when you have butterflies in your stomach just because you are reading the small introduction of the setting. I would recommend this book to anyone around my age, it might not be appropriate for elementary kids to read about drugs.

    When Jessica's ex-spy father took another ML6 case, vanishes mysteriously, and ML6 refuses to help, Jessica Cole has been forced to deal with it all. Armed with a full makeup bag of high tech gagbets, Jessica finds her way to the AKSC skincare company. She was there to find her father and her father's target, Sam Bishop. While Jessica was undercover, she had no idea that she was set up by mysterious "Starfish". It's time for Jessica to prove that she can do more than just strike a pose. Cole must take on the bad guys and beat the spies at their own game. Throughout this page turning novel, Jessica learned to be confident, to fly on her own, and understood clearly who she truly is. Even though this book is not one of my favorites, I am still so grateful to read it. I wasn't sure whether to start this book or not since I'm not a big fan of spy stories. But after reading this book, I'm in love with action and spying novels. I would recommend this book to mostly everyone. It is always best to try new genres and a new style of reading.

    "I mean we had to go to the prom. It was his idea, completely."- pg 248, The Backup Date, by Leslie Margolis. Extraordinary exemplars of 21 different proms. All of the them have the same problem: They would rather go with their best friend's date. It turned out that there are 21 ways to solve it, and those 21 ways turned out to make one solution: love and respect yourself. Towards the end of each 21 small stories, all narrators understand that they should be confident, respectful to themselves, being able to love their own body, and understand clearly who they truly are. Even though this book is not one of my favorites, I am still so grateful to read it. I really enjoy how different yet similar the 21 small stories are. I felt like this book includes a collection of 21 adventures instead of 21 short stories all talking about each highschooler's prom. After reading this book, I also get to know each author's writing style. I only recommend this book to teenagers above 12, there are might be some contents that young kids might not understand.

    "In wartime, nothing is safe" In Berlin, 1932, Thirteen-year- old Gabriella Schramm lived a happy and privileged life. As Hitler rises to power, everything suddenly became quite unreal as though nothing could have any consequences. People who were once trustworthy are now Nazis. Gaby and her best friend Rosa seemed to realize the transformations of their lives and the agonies of their country during the rise of Hitler. To face the reality, Gaby turns to the comfort of her books, but suddenly those are in grave danger of disappearing as well. To Gaby, holding on to the one thing she loved the most was never so hard. "I could still see Berlin faintly, its buildings rising like a scratchy calligraphy, words in a sentence strung across a page. A page I couldn't quite read" Through a young women, Kathryn Lasky describes a personal and political history that will haunt readers. I would give this book a 101/100 if you ask me to rate it. Reading this book, I imagine myself as Gaby. I smelled the ashes she smelled and I felt my own eyes stinging as Gaby saw the sea of brown uniforms. I really enjoy this page-turning book because every word from this book affected me deeply. I recommend this book to all ages and genders because Gaby's gripping story will haunt everyone.
