Book Review: Amelia’s Story by D. G. Torrens

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Age Recommended: 14 and up This book was quite disturbing yet very well-written.

Book Review: Unstoppable – Nowhere To Run by Jude Watson

Rating : 3.7 out of 5 stars Recommended Age : 8 and up The Unstoppable series seems like an impossible mission at first but as Jude Watson reveals tidbits of information, mission impossible becomes mission crazy ( even for a lunatic). I liked the book at first but as it went on, there were some unnecessary details. I mean, if you have read the previous books, you might find that this book isn’t quite up to the standard. The book though, has another one of the trademark 39 clue’s cliffhangers. Dan figures out that the serum was not completely destroyed … Continue reading Book Review: Unstoppable – Nowhere To Run by Jude Watson
