    I also won this from the giveaway. Fifer and Thisbe are supposed to be the two main characters, but I thought they were very one sided and really just vessels for their uncontrollable magic. Speaking of that, the magic didn't come in as much as I would have liked it to. No spoilers, however. The one character whom I really enjoyed reading about was Alex, but he wasn't mentioned much since there's already an entire series on him. The plot was average, but the ending wasn't good either, at least in my opinion. I thought it was a poor attempt at a cliffhanger. All it did was scream sequel. I understand that I'm slightly above the recommended age level for this book, but I thought I would share what I thought of it.

    I loved this series a few years ago, and I think it would be nice to read another book, just for the sake of old memories. Yes, I would still read it. The books are really funny anyway, no matter how old you are.

    I know a lot of people like this book, but I didn't think it was that good. First of all, even though I didn't look up any spoilers I knew that Katniss was going to win the Hunger Games, although I didn't expect the whole thing with Peeta. And by the way, sorry if I spoiled it. It was kind of cheesy even though people say a lot of books have been based off of this. Overall, if this is your type of book, go ahead. Just not for me.

    What if you only wanted to be normal? Cinder, stepdaughter of Adri Linh and stepsister of Peony and Pearl Linh, only ever wanted to fit in. But how would that be possible for a sixteen-year-old girl if you were a cyborg, in a busy city full of people and... diseases? Letumosis, a plague, spreads rapidly throughout New Beijing. Meanwhile, Prince Kaito, or soon to be Emperor Kaito, struggles with the daily threats of Queen Levana, the manipulative queen of Luna. But needing an alliance with Luna, and also an antidote for Letumosis (only able to obtain in Luna), Emperor Kai strikes up a marriage alliance with Queen Levana. However, Cinder soon discovers she is... lunar. As Cinder and Kai's "friendship-or more-than-just-that relationship shatters, Cinder is forced to become something she never wanted to be--Levana's prisoner. After many twists and turns in Cinder's story, you realize that she might not only be a cyborg, but someone she has to be--but doesn't want to be. As attacks from Luna becomes more and more fatal, Cinder is forced to believe the fact that she needs to change something. Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, deserves to have 10 out of five stars!

    Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls is one awesome book!! In this heart-warming tale, you can read the perspective of a boy who only wanted a dog. Billy's story shows true friendship, perseverance, and helps you understand how hard work pays off. Mr. Rawls story is a wonderful work of art that shows one boy's love for two Redbone Coonhounds.
