Title of Book or Name of Activity
The Cemetery Boys, by Heather Brewer
3 Sentences
Stephen is forced to move from Denver to the small and dull town of Spencer. He befriends a few of the local kids, and soon learns of the town's mysterious folklore. All the locals believe in The Winged Ones, supposedly dark, horrific beings that allegedly terrorize Spencer. Stephen doesn't know what to believe, so he starts to look for answers himself, while getting into loads of trouble.
Best/Worst Thing
The ending was a relatively unpleasant one, far from a 'Happily Ever After', though it ties up the story fairly well.

Title of Book or Name of Activity
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
3 Sentences
Markus Zusak kept me on the edge of my seat all throughout this compelling novel that follows a young girl named Liesel. Liesel found a love for books throughout the story. Set in world war two Germany, a mixture of books and Nazis was not the best combination.
Best/Worst Thing
I found the fact that the narrator was death interesting, and it compelled me to turn the page over and over again until there weren't any pages to turn.
