A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens [adult fiction, teen fiction]

Reviewed by Matthew

A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens, is a classic book that has continued to be read by teens and adults. Dickens doesn’t develop a lot of plot, but his character development is exceptional.


Brave New World

Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley [Teen Fiction]

Reviewed by Colleen, 12th grader

This was a deep, though-provoking book. Set in the future, it is a civilization where technology is used a lot. The focus is production — of everything. Family, religion, and overcoming obstacles are foreign concepts. Completely new plot with an age-old theme. Exciting and recommended to everyone.

Clan of the Cave Bear

Clan of the Cave Bear, by Jean M. Auel [adult fiction]

Reviewed by Daniel

This book is about a clan of Neaderthals in the very end of the Ice Age. They find a homo sapien and the book is about how she reacts to this different race of humans, and how they relate to her. I recommend this book.

Little Pink Slips

Little Pink Slips, by Sally Koslow [adult fiction]

Reviewed by Christine

Little Pink Slips is a novel about Magnolia Gold, a recently promoted editor in chief at Lady magazine. All was going well with magazine sales skyrocketing due to her changes, but once Darlene, another high up coworker at Lady suggests that they use Bebe Blake as their ticket to increased sales, Bebe is given her job and Magnolia watches as everything dwindles. Bebe Blake is a loudmouth TV personality that is an overall fashion don’t, such as one of those people on reality love shows, whose ideas and personality will lead to disaster. Magnolia loves her job as editor and is forced to do what she can to make the magazine a success. Read the book  to see how the story plays out between Magnolia, ex-editor in chief and Bebe, all around fashion don’t.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loved the book The Devil Wears Prada because the main character is not a fashionable person but has to be to work at the magazine. The plot is similar in which there is an undesirable boss, Bebe Blake in this case, and how the main character has to solve the problem. I give this book 4.5 stars because I really liked it.

I read Lucifer’s Hammer by Larry Niven. It is about a comet that hits the earth and how the people react. I really enjoyed this amazing book.
