What i like most about this book is that i am a big fan of there soccer team like for instance"The flag of the Netherlands has three horizontal stripes.The top stripe is red,the middle white,and the bottom blue.The red stripe used to be orange in honor of the Prince of Orange,who helped the Dutch gain independence from Spain.However,the color orange was too faint in battle.The current flag was made official in 1937."   Check it out!

This is the second book in the Illuminae files. It follows Hanna and Nik who are aboard the jump station Heimdall. Despite their differences, they are forced to work together to defeat BeiTech and their team of invaders. Meanwhile, the characters from the first book are racing to safety. I loved this book. Just as in Illuminae, it's told through emails, messages, military reports, and video analysis. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read a sci-fy trilogy.   Check it out!

Ror is an unexperienced artist with little potential and experience outside of her house. She didn't go to school and didn't experience normal things like the other kids. She didn't know how to change or how to grow but when her dad told her a change that she must accept, it was life challenging. She ends up living in a homeless home with her family and experiences the feeling of being apart of gang that does graffiti. Soon she has a chance to go to college with an artistic vision or to end up living in trouble and daring love. This book created suspense and a twist different than other books which to me, was amazing.   Check it out!

This is a non-fiction novel, written by Anne Frank herself about life during the 2nd world war. It helps you a lot to know more about the war, and how it was like in a Jewish girl's mind. I absolutely loved this journal.
