I liked this book a lot. I read it about a week ago, and I fell in love with it. My one question is, why does it have to be a series? Every book these days is one and makes you wait a whole year until another one. I really want to read a really good book, and
be able to have it and not be pressured to get all the other ones to complete my set. I can’t wait for the next one though, this book was absolutely brilliant. I like that it isn’t dystopian because recently that seems like all anyone can write. Its about a girl named Gemma who loves the water. She has a really good life and wants to keep it thatway. She gets a boyfriend, her sister is amazing, and is pretty much the best swimmer in her area. She is really relatable, as she has an over controlling sister, a time where she goes out on her own to clear her thoughts and renew herself. But, (and there’s always a but in these kinds of things) there’s these new people in town who seem kind of odd. They do something to her, and she’s not quite sure what. All she knows is she’s infinitely faster, she even has to hold back in her swimming to not beat the number one time (hers), there are weird green scales in the bathroom after she showers, and the ocean sings to her. Actual singing. This book was really well written, and you should read it.

The top ten book is what it usually is. A series. The series is called the Gallager Girls books. The first book called I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have To Kill You is about a girl named Cammie Morgan who gors to a school where her mom is the headmistress. But, as cool as that is, there is something cooler about the Gallager Academy. It’s a school for spies-to-be. It takes either one of two things to get into the Gallager Academy, you can be like Cammie’s friend Liz, who is really really really really really smart, or you can be like Cammie and Bex (also Cammie’s friend) who’s parents are top notch spies. Most people don’t know what the academy really is, even the locals. On a day out in the town, Cammie meets a guy who’s name is Josh. All the girls put Josh through many tests to make sure he’s an okay guy, including go through his trash! I just finished the 5th book where Cammie forgot everything she did over the summer! I won’t divulge anything else, you need to read the WHOLE series okay? If this review didn’t intrigue you enough to read this series read the review here:
It’s time for the top ten book #6! This is a series call the Maximum Ride Novels. The first book The Angel Experiment, is about five kids who were experimented on before they were born. Because of this, they were born half avian, or bird. They have hollow bones like the birds, and they can fly! They have giant wings that fold in their backs not too beautifully. The main character, Maximum Ride, or Max for short, is like a mom to all the other kids- Fang, Gazzy, Angel, and Iggy, They all have some sort of superpower to go along with the bird thing. Max has a strange voice inside telling her what to do, Fang well you don’t find out what he can do for a while. Gazzy lets out the stinkiest farts thats why he is named Gazzy or the Gasman. Iggy well, he’s blind. Angel can read minds, and Max- she’s the fastest flier in town. they go on a big journey all the while chased by Erasers, which are dog hybrids. Some of the plot lines in this book are plain ridiculous, but in all, these books are really good. There are really too many to list, so I won’t bother.

Its time for the top ten book #7. The top 7 book is a trilogy called the Wind On Fire trilogy.The first book, The Wind Singer, is about the first adventure of the Hath family.

Hanno Hath, who can read the long lost language Old Manth, rebelles against the city with his wife in anyway he can. Pinto, who in this book is nicknamed Pinpin, plays a small part in the first book, seeing as she is about 5. Kess and Bo, who are the main characters in this book, are rebelling against the city too.

Today is the top 8 book! It’s a trilogy this time and their by Scott Westerfeild. Well, technically there are four books, but I hated the fourth one so much I just shun it. It doesn’t
even follow the plot line of the other three anyway. But, the first and best one of the three is Uglies. Its a dystopian novel about a girl named Tally who lives in “Uglyville” and is about to turn 16. Now, in this story turning 16 is looked forward to by all kids who lives in “Uglyville” and not because they get to drive a car. Its because they get to move to “New Pretty Town” and turn pretty! Their whole lives they get told that they are ugly. They are put down so much they are referred to as Uglies! But, Tally meets someone who doesn’t want to turn Pretty who wants to run away instead. Her name is Shay. Tally and Shay get really close during their last few months before their birthday. (I say birthday because they find out their birthday is on the same day!) But, before their birthday happines, Shay runs away. Tally was left with a broken heart and notes about how to get to the “Smoke” as Shay called it. Tally was prepared to leave Shay behind and start her new life as a “Pretty” but before she could, Special Circumstances came calling.

Day #2 of my Top Ten Books is underway. The #9 book is a series by Obert Skye. The first book- which I will be writing my review on- is Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo. Its about a boy named Leven who is from a different world called Foo but brought to Earth when born. Another girl- Winter- volunteers to go to Earth to watch over him. She is a middle aged woman who volunteers to become a baby again to be Leven’s same age. Leven ends up getting raised by his aunt and uncle, who are really mean to him. Then, when he gets returned to Foo, he finds out he has magical powers and has to save Foo from the evil villans who want to take Foo over. He goes on this amazing adventure with his newfound friend Winter. They run into a toothpick along the way named Geth. He is a lithen who came to Earh to guide Leven like Winter did. It’s a really good book and you should read it! I have read it a few times and will probably read it again. Other Books from this series include: Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret, Leven Thumps and the Eyes of Want, Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra, and Leven Thumps and the Ruins of Alder.
