I read the book Legend by Marie Lu. The story was about the 2 narrators, Day (Daniel) and June, and their futuristic lives in L.A. You follow the two of them through times that weren't expected and reveal secrets left behind for only one persons eyes. This fast paced story was near impossible to put down. I recommend this book to those who read the Hunger Games because they seem very similar in many ways.

I read Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. This story follows a orphan boy named Jeffery through a tough time period. He meets people no one ever though he would, went through hard times, befriended "blacks" even though he thought the color of their skin was more of a chocolate brown, and came out a hero. This book was not my favorite and I couldn't categorize who would personally like it. 

I read the story Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli. It is a story a strangely different high school girl and her life being an outcast. As a boy falls for her she changes her ways and people give her the silent treatment. What will she do to keep him talking to her???

Thanks for the reviews, Danielle!
