Subject Seven

Brief Summary: Subject Seven follows along multiple characters such as Subject Seven, Hunter Harrison, and many more. All of them are leading normal lives, but there is one thing that connects all of them, and Subject Seven holds that secret. What is Subject Seven? Well, years ago scientists developed a military weapon: sleeper assassins that are almost like Jeckly and Hyde with regular teenagers.
Subject Seven is there leader, and he has a plan that requires all of their help.

My review: I enjoyed reading Subject Seven very much. There were a few graphic scenes and lots of swearing, so it is not for young readers, but besides that, it was an amazing book and I cannot wait for the sequel. For Moore's first Young Adult book, I say that it was a success.

My rating:

***This book may win the Jack K Fiction Award 2011***

The Hollow

The Hollow by Agatha Christie is a murder mystery with a romantic twist. Yet another one of Christie's classic crime fictions, I found it a page turned, exciting, and, at the end, surprising. While I like And Then There Were None better, I still found this book great and a good read.

The Hiding Place

This book is the true story of Corrie ten Boom, a middle-aged woman who took in Jews during World War 2 and the punishment that came from it, her persistance in standing up for what is right, and, sadly, tragedy.
Although it was long and at some times hard to read, I found this book incredibly enjoyable and I really liked it. It was inspiring and amazing what she and her family went through.
