Bobby Pendragon is just a normal boy. He has a dog, plays basketball, kisses his crush… So what happens when his very cool, very secretive Uncle Press asks him for help? Soon, instead of normal 14 year old boy problems, he’s dealing with creepy shape-shifter Saint Dane, frightening “quigs”, and the thought of being a Traveler, someone who can travel flumes that transport him through space and time. Bobby ends up with the expectation of saving the planet Denduron. There he meets the gentle, but enslaved, Milago, and the arrogant Bedoowan who rule over them. He is given the challenge of leading the Milango’s revolution. But Bobby never asked to be a Traveler, and Loor – a girl his age from Zadaa, a warrior territory – believes him to be a coward and not worthy of the title: Traveler. As Bobby experiences the life of the Milango, he slowly comes to realize what he must do for this territory. But, although Bobby’s intentions soon become helpful, he might just make the biggest mistake of all…
This was a very well written sci-fi book. It reminds me of a very old series (Gor) in a way, but with a modern twist (obviously). A story about science, adventure, and the choices you have to make in life, Bobby Pendragon is a very good role model that could inspire many a teen to make better choices (or just not to trust your vague uncles…). The Merchant of Death was a superb start to a series.

I read this book for my summer assignment for Honors English at Windward and it turned out I made a good choice! This book is set in the 24th century. Guy Montag is a fireman, but instead of stopping fires, he set them. His job is to burn the houses of anyone who owns any books. However, after he meets Clarisse, a care free innocent and curious girl, his perspective on his life changes. She asks him one simple question, “Are you happy?” and after that, his world is turned upside down.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams July 27, 2009

Most Frequented Branch: Ferndale

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was an interesting read to say the least. I am an avid fan of Terry Pratchett, and Douglas Adams (author) definitely captured some of the style Pratchett puts in his famous Discworld series. In Hitchhiker’s, Ford Prefect saves his human friend, Arthur Dent, just seconds before the planned demolition of earth. Through a bad mishap, the two are saved by Ford’s old friend and president of the Galaxy, Zaphod Beeblebrox, and a girl Arthur once met, Tricia “Trillian” McMillan. Ford and Arthur tag along with Zaphod and Trillian as they travel to the legendary planet, Magrathea, to find the answer to life, the universe, and everything. Overall, Douglas Adams is creative, to say the least, when creating the world of Hitchhiker’s. Adams has definitely influenced the satire and unpredictibility of Pratchett, and also wrote with the cleverness of Trenton Lee Stewart’s The Mysterious Benedict Society.

Banner of the stars is the second book in the trilogy and follows the same main charactors only it is 3 years after the first book. the main charactors are now the captain and lutennant of a ship and are going out to war. this follows them through their first few battles as well as lets you see how the two have grown and how much they have stayed the same.

This book is about three children who live in Zimbabwe 200 years in the future. They get kidnapped by a gang called the Skulls, and a trio of extraordinary detectives known as the Ear, the Eye and the Arm, are hired to find them. This is a very exciting book and difficult to put down once you start. The author has also written Sea of Trolls and The Land of the Silver Apples — two more very exciting books.

Gone is a great science fiction novel. In the beginning, everything is normal until all the adults just poof, disappear. Like one minute they are there and the next they aren’t. It makes no sense whatsoever. Anyone over the age of 14 is gone. Everyone then turns to Sam, the town hero. Ever since he saved his classmates from a horrible bus accident, he had been trying to keep a low profile and leading the life of your average surfer. But now, the twon is in need of a leader, and everyone turns to Sam. Everything starts to go wrong when the kids from Coates Acadamy take control and suddenly, life is being ruled by the3 bullies. Now it’s up to Sam and his friends to save the town from the awful tyranny led by Sam’s own brother.
