    "Place a beehive in my grave and let the honey soak through. When I'm dead and gone that's what I want from you." Singing songs like that is what Lily and her caregiver, Rosaleen, do when they run away from Lily's mean, uncaring father. Because this is set in the 1960's Rosaleen who is black gets put in jail. I think it's really exciting when Lily breaks her out. "I watched as the policeman put on his hat and walked down the corridor and out the door. When Rosaleen and I stepped from her room, I looked left, then right." This part seems really suspenseful and makes you want to keep reading to see what happens next. If you want to read a great book about beekeeping sisters, black Madonna and other funny adventures, I really recommend you read this book.

    If you are into books about teenage life then this is the book for you. I selected this book because I read the back and thought it was interesting. The title of this book is Prom Anonymous. The author is Blake Nelson. The genre is realistic fiction. My favorite passage from this book was "What if he thinks I am a freak?" Says Chloe. "He won't think you are a freak unless you act like a freak." Stated Laura. This book is about how a girl named Chloe doesn't want to go to prom but her friends talk her into going. She ends up having a wonderful time! Well the only connection I have with this book is having to find a dress for my cousin's wedding. An exciting part in the book is during the prom. I do recommend someone to read this book because it is interesting and honestly some of the tips are good for teenage girls.

    ' "Okay - answer me this: why would anyone want to wear an overcoat in San Francisco in the middle of summer?" Sophie Newman pressed her fingers against the Bluetooth earpiece as she spoke. On the other side of the continent, her fashion - conscious friend Elle inquired matter - of - factly, "What sort of coat?" Wiping her hands on the cloth tucked into her apron strings, Sophie moved out from behind the counter of the empty coffee shop and stepped up to the window, watching men emerge from the car across the street. "Heavy black wool overcoats. They're even wearing black gloves and hats. And sunglasses." She pressed her face against the glass. "Even for this city, that's just a little too weird." ' (Quoted from book) 'The Alchemyst' by Michael Scott is for those who love constant action and suspense. The book is mainly a fantasy, but there are historical figures, such as Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel, weaved into the story. In fact, Nicholas Flamel's name on the cover (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) is what drew me to select this book. I've read a few books in which he was mentioned, and soon came to realize that Flamel was not a character in a singular story, but a real person, and I selected the book to find out what personality this author gave him. In the book he is deceptive, and yes, immortal. His deceptiveness is most prominent at the beginning of the story, where he and his wife are disguised as Nick and Perry Fleming. They own a local bookstore at which Josh Newman is employed. Josh's twin sister, Sophie, works across the street at a coffee shop. When Perry visits Sophie at the coffee shop, there is a disturbance in the bookstore, and they both hurry over to see what's wrong. When they enter, they are met with havoc. Dr. John Dee, an ally of the Dark Elders, seeks Flamel's secret to immortality: The Codex. Josh and Sophie realize that the Flemings are not who they say they are while Flamel and Dee are speaking to one another, Dee using magic to pull the book from where it was hidden. Josh seizes the book in a moment of confusion, but then Dee takes the book and Perenelle and leaves. What he doesn't realize, though, is that when he snagged the book from Josh's grasp, two very important pages were ripped from the book, and he is left with only part of what he wants. Nicholas, Sophie and Josh are being hunted, and they don't know who to trust. Flamel has helped them so far, but what exactly are his motives? An exciting part in the story was when Nicholas, Sophie, and Scathatch are struggling to fend off the skeletal army Dee has awakened. Josh is seperated from them, and the fog makes it impossible for them to find each other. It is very suspenseful. My favorite passage, though, was as follows: ' "The girl has one of the purest silver auras I've encountered in many an age. She needs to be taught some spells of personal protection if she is to survive the rest of the Awakening process. The fact that she's still sane and whole these many hours later is testament to her strength of will." ' I liked this passage because it shows just how mentally strong Sophie is, and portrays her as a tough character. I can understand what Josh feels like when Sophie gains her powers. He feels alone, abandoned. I can relate to this because whenever my sisters spend the night at a friend's house, it feels wrong in the house. It just doesn't feel right, and I can imagine how Josh feels through this connection. I highly recommend 'The Alchemyst' by Michael Scott to those who enjoy reading stories filled with action and high suspense. I also recommend this book to people who love history and fantasy, as this book tweaks the personalities of real people and spins them into tales of fantasy.

    "My name is Michael Vey, and I'm more electric then an electric eel. I always thought I was the only one like me, but I'm not. I just found out that there were originally seventeen of us. And the people who made us this way, the Elgen, are hunting us down. You might say we were an accident. The Elgen corporation created a machine called the MEI (short for Magnetic Electron Induction), to be used for finding diseases and abnormalities in the body. Instead it created abnormalities us." My book is called "Michael Vey Rise Of The Elgen". It was written by Richard Paul Evans. The passage I chose was " I cupped my hands together, I was making a snowball, and pulsed. To my surprise a ball of electric formed almost like a soup bubble, except with more weight, like a Ping-Pong ball." I chose this passage because I was surprised he could do that. A connection is that I have talents too. If you want a book with action this is your book. This is a five star book. I recommend this book and the first one.
