Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

This book scores a 9/10 because of the suspense, action, and romance. The author is a bit repetitive but redeems herself with a good storyline.

Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter

This book gets a 7.5. The story itself was good but it tended to be boring. It sped up during the middle of the book but the beginning and end was somewhat slow.

Nightmare Academy by Frank Peretti

“Nightmare Academy” follows the Springfield twins as they go undercover at the Knight-Moore Academy, a school for runaway kids. The school is impossible to leave once you’re in and messes with the students’ minds by taking away the concept of truth and reality. It was a very good book and is good for people who enjoy psychological horror.

The Theory of Everything by Kari Luna

Is interdimensional time travel possible? Sophie Sophia sure hopes so.

But don’t worry, she has her shaman panda Walt and newly formed best friend Fzuny to help hear along the way. “The Theory of Everything” is a cute, quirky book that’ll fill a hole in your heart and get you thinking about love and quantum physics.
