Now You See Me - Review by Teen Blogger, Pranathi

Posted on July 8, 2016 at 04:02 PM
I have never been so intrigued in my life. Magic has always been a concept which twists one’s thoughts and thinking process to enhance the illusion taking place and to “wow” the audience. It never ceases to amaze anyone because of how ludicrous the whole idea is. I’m not talking about your basic “abracadabra” or “hocus pocus” but rather the real thing: illusionism, hypnotism, mentalism, etc. Real tricks that anyone with the capacity and willingness can master. Now You See Me, directed by Louis Leterrier is a must watch.

13 Reasons Why - Review by Anonymous

Posted on July 5, 2016 at 12:41 PM
The snowball effect is one that gets larger and larger as a result of the actions of others and how you react to those reactions but most of all, this effect can be deadly. Hannah Baker understood just how well the snowball effect affected herself and everyone around her. With one conflict came another and then another and another, like a giant snowball, until the madness overwhelmed the person at the center of the conflict and they chose to put an end to their suffering. As one who could relate to how Hannah felt in the midst of all this drama, the novel hit a little too close to home. But, as a result, 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher turned into a life-changing novel which inspired me to take a different path than the one Hannah Baker chose...

Six of Crows - Review by Emma, Teen Blogger

Posted on June 21, 2016 at 01:47 PM
Imagine that you live in a world where magic is a part of everyday life. Where the people who use magic are called Grisha, and they can transform objects, physical appearances, and material properties. What if their Grisha powers become amplified when they are given a drug called Jurda Parem? And what if this drug will eventually kill them? What if a powerful merchant tells you to bring him the maker of the drug, Bo Yul-Bayur, for a reward of 30 million kruge? The only catch is that Yul-Bayur is being held prisoner in the Ice Court, capital of Fjerda--a nation of Grisha haters, and the most secure place in the world. Would you take the job? Kaz Brekker would. But then, Kaz is a master thief, and he’ll do anything for money. Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows follows Kaz Brekker and his team as they begin their journey. But will they all live to see the end?

After the Red Rain - Review by Saul, Teen Blogger

Posted on June 17, 2016 at 05:48 PM
It seems that every day there is a new book trying to explore the idea of dystopia. It is a genre that has had a massive boom in recent years, with a number of popular books published. If you like dystopias, then I can highly recommend After the Red Rain. It is an interesting and thought provoking story that is sure to please fans of the genre. The plot takes place after a bizarre apocalypse known as the red rain. What makes this setting unique is how the majority of people seem to believe that the red rain actually helped society and, in fact, that the world is much better since it took place. Of course, this point is expanded upon later in the novel and leads to some interesting places. The main story follows a young woman who meets a strange man named Rose, and together they discover dark secrets about the world in which they live.
