Teen Book Review

Review by Wesley, Rohnert Park Branch


The Deep (Dive #2) by Gordon Korman

     Description:  4 divers named Dante, Star, Kaz, and Adriana find sunken treasure and can't hide it.

     I picked it up because it was a prize and I wanted a treasure book.

     I finished it because I like treasure books.

     I'd recommend it to people who are involved in history.



Teen Book Review

Review by Karina, Rohnert Park Branch


Theodore Boone: Kid lawyer by John Grisham

     Description:  Theo is a 13-year-old wanna be lawyer, and for good reason.  He knows the law more than most lawyers.  He cracks open a case about to be ignored and lost.  He works hard and proves his leads.

     I picked it up because it was a gift.

     I finished it because there were cliff-hangers like no other book, I HAD to know what happened!

     I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a gripping mystery with a smart kid.


Teen Book Review

Review by Matt, Rohnert Park Branch

Three books by Tom Angleberger:

origamiyoda     darthpaper     fortunewookie

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda

Darth Paper Strikes Back

The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee

     Description: Adventures of the students at Mcquarrie Middle School and their Star Wars themed Origami.

     I picked it up because I read the first two installments.

     I finished it because I felt obligated to finish the series.

     I'd recommend it to any huge Star Wars fan, or a Diary of a Wimpy Kid fan.


Teen Book Review

I Am The Messenger by Marcus Zusak


Review by Fallon, Northwest Branch

Ed has a typical (yet boring) life as a cabdriver. With his brother in college, his father dead, and a mother that doesn't approve of him, his life has been a disappointment. When one day he stops a thief escaping, he begins receiving playing cards with instructions on them. Ed now follows the cards where they lead him to help people all over town. As he receives and completes more missions though, he begins to find out who is behind all of it.
I picked up this book because I had recently read The Book Thief, also by Markus Zusak, and thought I would enjoy it even if it wasn't my genre.  While this book was not as good as The Book Thief, it still turned out to be an enjoyable book. Ed is a character we can all relate to, and how he deals with his tasks was interesting to see. However, the best point in this book had to be the message at the end. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a short, entertaining read.

Teen Book Review

Trust No One by Linda Sue Park


Review by Anthony, Guerneville Branch

Four kids are trying to save their family who are being held hostage.

I picked it up because I had read the others in the series. (39 clues: Cahills vs. Vespers)

I finished it because I enjoyed it.

I'd recommend it to people who enjoy mysteries.

Rating: 5 stars
