Exile by Kevin Emerson gives the reader a different view about the music industry. Summer, a teenage girl who has been dumped by her own band has no place to start until Caleb Daniels flickers a light of hope for a new beginning but also a dark secret. They form a band together with 3 other members but the unknown life of a rock star struck curiosity for the rest of the members. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 because it’s much different than other books about music.

This is a story about four chicks named Dirt, Sugar, Poppy and Sweetie and a squirrel named Tail and all the trouble they find trying to solve a “big and scary” mystery. This book is very funny and the drawings in the book are great! My favorite part is when the four chicks fought with hotdogs. I definitely recommend this book to my friends.

If you have a taste for a dose of fantasy mixed with horror, Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong is the book for you. The story revolves around Moria and Ashyn, twin sisters burdened with the job of protecting their village from spirits. This year is the first year Ashyn will enter the forest to aid the spirits of the empire’s exiles to pass on… and things don’t go quite as planned. Peculiar things keep happening to disturb the ritual: people are found dead, and Ashyn has the feeling that something is watching her. Meanwhile, Moria is sure something is wrong. Will the girls make it out alive?

Ask Me by Kimberly Pauley is a story about a girl named Aria who is unable to lie or withhold the truth when she is asked a question. Aria tries to keep to herself, but when one of the few people at her school who treats her like a person goes missing she is forced to use her skill to figure out what happened. This book is a light read that seems to be directed towards fns of puzzles and inner strength, but in my opinion this novel would be enjoyed by anyone who takes the time to read it.

The Taking by Kimberly Derting is a combination of science fiction and romance. I enjoyed this book and couldn’t stop reading it once I began. This book is about a girl who finds herself at a gas station after she has been taken five years later. She has no memories of anything from those years but knows that it was very special to her life.She then finds out she is ‘special’ and has to hide to save her life. I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 and I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading romance books.

Erin Bowman set a high standard for herself with her first novel Taken. Sadly, Frozen could not even begin to live up to the standards that I had previously held for anything that could possibly be written by the same author. It was well written, and I bet I could get through it a different time if I had to, and still enjoy it, but it was a disappointment and because of this I didn’t have the drive to finish it.
