Teen Review: The Space Between

The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff

The Space Between, by Brenna Yovanoff

Teen Reviewer: Keely McLouth

Darkly beautiful and twisted, The Space Between is a mysterious story unlike any book I've ever read. With many twists and turns, Brenna Yovanoff's writing continues to surprise me. This book touched my heart with many waves of emotions as Daphne and Truman take on a dangerous adventure to save Daphne's brother from the most threatening duo on Earth.

Teen Review: Changeling

Changeling by Philippa Gregory

Changeling, Order of Darkness series, by Philippa Gregory

Teen Reviewer: Zeke Pedrino

I think that Changeling: The Order of Darkness Book One is a fantastic book. I think this book is fantastic because it is fast paced and has action, which I am fond of. It also has a lot of religious based ways, most are catholic, which is surprising and allows me to learn about other religions.
