    "Great YA novels are few and far between these days and rather than appealing to sappy/emotional sensibilities, this novel taps into the inner action hero in all of us. A fun read that takes you around the world with an engrossing plot and fantastic character development. "

    "The Hunger Games trilogy is one of the best books for boys. My son read it over and over and couldn't get tired of it. It's one of those books that live in one's mind even when they grow old. He always tells me stories about it even after he's long passed the 7th grade."

    "Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a classic read for pre-teens. I even enjoyed the book as an adult. There are a lot of useful lessons taught throughout while still being a fun and easy read. It was so funny that even kids who do not normally like reading will be sucked in!"

    "I read "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" when I was in grammar school and enjoyed it so much that I continued to read the entire series. Afterward, I looked into C.S. Lewis' other works and read them voraciously in kind. I think that it would be fair to say that this book helped to foster my life long love affair with reading; and as such, I think that it is a terrific reccomendation for any young person who wants to read."
