Overall, A Night Divided was a fantastic book! I definitely suggest it to anyone above the age of nine years old. A Night Divided was written by Jennifer A.

Gerta and her older brother, Fritz, take it upon themselves to build a tunnel secretly under an abandoned building that is in between the Berlin Wall’s two sides, along the way there are many plot twists, close calls, surprising events, and alot of action on every page.
The novel “Risk” by Fleur Ferris is about two teenage girls – Taylor and Sierra. Sierra meets a “boy” named Jacob Jones online and agrees to meet up with him but after three days, she still hasn’t come back home and her phone always goes straight to voicemail, Taylor ends up trying to figure out what happened to her.

The novels The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, both contain strong female characters. Hester Prynne and Daisy Buchanan both portray strong female characters in their stories, but they deal with it in different ways. Hester Prynne displays a sense of strength and graciousness when dealing with her scarlet letter, but Daisy Buchanan, when faced with the choice of love or material, chooses the money of her husband Tom. Hester Prynne clearly embodies the strongest female character in any novel read this year.

“Change begins with a whisper”, according to one of the many themes brought to life by the novel, The Help, by Kathryn Stockett.

The Mission Rescue is a series of mystery thriller novels by the popular American author Shirleee McCoy made famous for her series of inspirational and Christian romance titles. With about two titles released every year since 2014, the series of novels continues to gain more popularity.

Recently I read the book Panic, by Lauren Oliver. The genre of the story is realistic fiction and is written for young adults. Lauren Oliver also wrote the books “Before I Fall”, “Pandemonium”, and “Requiem”. The book Panic is about a group of teenagers that compete in a high-stakes game that involves many secretive, dangerous challenges. Even though the game is so dangerous, the $67,000 cash prize makes it well-worth it.
