"Deals and explains in great detail the mapping of the twenty three pairs of chromosomes that make up the human genome. Also speaks about many ethical questions, detailing history and explaining all sides of arguments and opinions raised. This book is perfect for anyone interested in biology, and human genetic makeup. Personally, it helped me a great deal in my Biology courses and I hope it helps you."

"A very good mystery and suspense read. When Sean, Jimmy, and Dave were little kids a strange cur pulled into they street and one of the boys got into the car. Something terrible happened which ended their friendship forever, and now years later a murder has begun to tie them together again. Very suspenseful and even better than the movie."

"A witty comedy by Jane Austen which details ahd twists and turns of the romantic courtships in the 1700's. Said to be one of the best love stories of all time, it details the courtship between the suave Mr.Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. It is very funny and a really charming love story that I reccomend greatly. Although it was written awhile ago, the love elements in it are seen in today's society also. The new movie Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightley was based on this book."

"A great study aid for the SAT. This books follows the story Kim Stratford, an undercover cop trying to bust a high school drug ring. It is very interesting and the best part is that which each page, you learn SAT vocabulary words essential for doing good on the test. It really helps you understand and memorize the words."
