The Rise of Scourge
Review
I really like the graphics in this warrior cats manga book. Its really cool how we get to see how Tiny became Scourge. I actually feel bad for him now! Because instead of a mad, bloodthirsty cat, we have a angry, mistreated cat, who is seeking revenge. It think its funny how the rouges actually believed Tiny when he said that he killed a dog to get his first tooth on his collar. When I read about Ruby and Socks, I got really mad at them. But then I wondered; suppose they had been nice siblings, what would Tiny have been like later in his life? But over all, this is my favorite manga!

Carrie
Review
This book tells the story of Carrieta "Carrie" White, a bullied high school girl with telekinetic powers. Her mother is irrationally religious, often punishing Carrie by forcing her to go into the closet and pray for forgiveness. Carrie's appearance and nature make her the subject of ridicule for her classmates, and when Carrie is pushed too far, the entire town feels her wrath. This is a great book for anyone who likes high school fiction or supernatural stories. Stephen King provides many details about the title character and her mother by highlighting fake newspaper articles about her powers and the study of telekinesis.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Review
I read this book because it was recommended to me by my friend in 8th grade. At first when I heard parts of it I shook the idea of such a ridiculous story, but after reading it this summer I found out how great it was! In this crazy story about "human" nature from all perspectives and the journey of poor Arthur Dent who at times seems to be the only one who makes sense in the Galaxy I found myself full of giggles at the jokes, and snide remarks from all the lovable characters. The number 42 will forever be in my mind and whenever I see those little furry rodents i'll run for my life, and I will never EVER leave my house without a towel in hand.
