    "lary Fray is a regular fifteen-year-old girl, who is just trying to go through life with her best friend Simon and find her way in the world. There is no other book quite like this one; it is simply magnificent in every way possible. I love series books because you get time to grow with and learn more about the characters; this is certainly what happens with The Mortal Instruments. "

    "The Hobbit would be an okay book to read for a younger audience. There may be some adults that may like it too but you must love/like the fantasy genre. I can't quite get past the whole book being about hobbits, warlocks, and wizards. I'm just not into it. "

    "I saw the movie Coraline. I thought it was odd but interesting. I picked up the book and was not totally sure what to expect. I started reading it and was impressed by the descriptions of events that take place. It has more than I expected because the movie does not do it justice in my opinion. It is great for young teens or anybody who likes something different."
