Overall: 4.4

Comments: John Green is fantastic when it comes to writing great characters and interesting plot. This book is about the disappearance of the undisputed ‘queen’ of Quentin’s high school-his next-door neighbor, Margo. She vanishes after rcruiting him for a hilarious night of revenge on her ex-boyfriend-and then she disappears. He refuses to think that this is the end of Margo, follows her clues, and finds her again, all the while tying to the best of his ability to avoid the mention of prom and survive his last few months of high school. It’s a really great book!

Caught Between the Pages

by Marlene Carvel

Plot: 2 – Fair
Characters: 3 – Average
Writing: 3 – Average
Pace: 1 – very slow
Cliche Meter: 2 – cliche

Overall: 2.2
Comments: The book wasn’t the greatest book in the world. Even though it took forever to get to the plot, the substance was pretty ok. The fact is that is a story with a level of cliche with a slow pace.

OVERALL RATING: 4.4 out of 5

Comments: This ones’s a page turner! For those who like the classic supernatural tales of olden Europe this book takes you into the shadowy world of terror and adventure. With a subtle yet complex romance brewing on the horizon, it even has a little something for us saps! But, for those who, like myself, dread the thought of waiting for the next installment in a series, be aware this is a very recently published series with only the first book out.
