Ender’s Game

Ender's GameThis novel is a very well developed story of a six-year-old Einstein who is chosen by the international government to be the savior of the human race. Ender Wiggin is sent into space to an elite school for geniuses, where they are trained for eight to ten years to fight the deadliest enemy their world has ever faced: the Buggers.

My overall favorite scene is when Ender proves his ability to think like no commander before him, using his already dead soldiers as a shield to keep just one alive, when hopelessly outnumbered by his enemy. My favorite character is Ender, because he is able to kill the enemy with his powerful knowledge. Sorry, that’s redundant, this book defines that knowledge is power. This writer is amazing, and if you like this book I also recommend Ender’s Shadow and Speaker for the Dead. Have a wonderful time reading!  [ThreeRatMom]

Science Fair

Science Fair: A Story of Mystery, Danger, International Suspense, and a Very Nervous FrogScience Fair is about 3 friends, Toby, Tamara, and Micah, who want to beat the rich kids who always win by cheating. Toby, Tamara, and Micah end up getting suspended from school, Toby ends up getting blackmailed, and other things. It turns out that the science fair causes a terrorist attack.

I really liked this book because it was funny how much trouble Toby, Tamara, and Micah can get into with the rich kids. My favorite scene would be when Toby used a cantaloupe camera … and got attacked by a robot-laser-eye owl.  [∏]

Daniel X, Alien Hunter

Daniel X, Alien HunterA teenager has the power to create whatever he wants. And in this book he faces #7, an alien that is made out of ants. He also meets really cool friends during his journey.  My favorite scene is when Daniel X defeats #7 alien. My favorite character is, of course, Daniel X, and that is because of the way Daniel X cared about people and was so determined to defeat #7.  [mysteryman221]

Maximum Ride: The Manga 1

Maximum Ride: The Manga 1This graphic novel is about 6 kids named Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angel. They are human test results of animal and human fusion of DNA – they’ve been fused with bird’s DNA so they have wings and can fly. They escaped the institute where they got their wings, and now spend their lives constantly running away from people trying to bring them back.

My favorite characters are Fang, Gazzy, and Max. Fang is cool, Gazzy is funny and loves to blow things up, and Max does the best she can to be a leader.  [#1 Percy Jackson fan]

The Girl Who Owned a City

The Girl Who Owned a CityLisa and her little brother have been living alone since their parent died from a horrible illness that only affects people over twelve years old. She is driving out to old farms to find food, and the kids who live their help her collect it. But the Chidester Gang comes and destroys everything they collected.  How will they survive?

This is a great graphic novel.  My favorite character is probably Lisa. It’s probably not a book for all people, it has some very scary graphics and stuff, but it’s a great book.  [pixiestix123]
