Spider-Man: The Ultimate Guide, by Tom Defalco

Spiderman the Ultimate Guide, by Tom Defalco, guides you through from all the classic to modern day super-heroes connected to Spider-Man. Like Doctor Octopus, Electro, the Punisher, Venom, and etc. It will give you chills and thrills as Spider-Man's background and life throughout all of the events that occur with his friends and enemies. I totally recommend this book to teenage boys who are hooked on comic books and super-heroes. Very fun to read! -Reviewed by H.P., grade 9.

Revenge of the Wannabes, by Lisi Harrison

Revenage of the Wannabes, the third novel of The Clique series by Lisi Harrison, tensions rise and drama fills the air at Octavian Country bay school. Alicia is getting closer with LBR’s (loser beyond repair) from her dance class. Massie starts getting jealous and annoyed with Alicia and as girls do, they fight. Alicia Rivera has started her own clique. All the while, Claire has finally made it to the pretty committee, and has a briarwood boy crushing on her. And when all is good, the battle between Alicia and Massie, hit Dylan, Kirsten, and Claire hard. Who will they choose?
This Clique book is full of cat fights and drama, and happens to be my favorite. It teaches you the importance of friendship and that is an important lesson for us all. I recommend this to people who enjoy stories with a core lesson, but also enjoy dramatic cat fights and battles of friends.
