This was a riveting tale of a child who suffered from Tourette's Syndrome. However, the writing style was pretty awful and it took away from the story. I am not a fan of James Patterson's writing but I know that many people enjoy his writing style. He seems to have great plots in fiction but it does not come through in his writing.

Not for the light-hearted,this book is dark but extremely well-written. I enjoyed all the twists and turns in the novel and look forward to reading more novels by Flynn.

I thought this book's surprising twist at the end made it worth reading. Great novel about an independent woman in a very difficult field where one needs to never make a mistake.

This is one of my favorite young adult novels of all time. It explains vampirism as a virus that is spread between humans. After each chapter, Westerfeld includes a short description of a real-life parasite that exists in the world which was absolutely fascinating. (Note: Not for those who gross out easily.)

Great graphic novel for reluctant female readers. The book is about a group of teenage girls who use art as rebellion.
