Reviews

John Green’s Turtles All the Way Down was significantly better than anticipated. The characters were relatable, interesting, and overall quirky, especially the main character, who presents
herself as fun sidekick rather than the amazing young woman that she truly is.
People tend to associate O.C.D. with repetitive behaviours, and that’s partly true in
Aza’s case.  When Aza and Daisy set off on an adventure of a lifetime, trying to uncover
what happened to Aza’s possible love affair, Davis (more specifically, Davis’s father), Aza’s                                                 already complicated life gets filled with files, paper, codes, and coded messages,                                                           making the search for Davis’s father seem increasingly similar to living inside of a Nancy Drew mystery.

Turtles All the Way Down

In Godsgrave, the second installment of the Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff,
young assassin Mia Corvere continues on her bloody quest to avenge her murdered
family. When it’s announced that the men who had her family destroyed would be attending
the conclusion of the gladiator games in the city of Godsgrave, Mia sells herself to a
gladiatorial collegium for a chance to finally end them. Upon the sands of the arena,
Mia finds new allies, bitter rivals, and more questions about her strange affinity for
the shadows. But as conspiracies unfold within the collegium walls, and the body
count rises, Mia will be forced to choose between loyalty and revenge, and uncover
a secret that could change the very face of her world.
Godsgrave diverse cast represents both the LGBTQA+ community and people of colour.

Godsgrave

There is something undeniably beautiful about the style of Exit, Pursued by a Bear.
With sickening pages filled with hurt, grief and survival, it keeps you enthralled. This book is a stand alone novel, written by E.K.
Johnston. Compared to other books of this magnitude, detailing a tragic story of rape and the rising above, this is my favourite. E.K. Johnston manages to capture the story by detailing a not-so- cliché story. I was expecting cliche from this story; however, I was blown away as E.K. Johnston delivered powerful characters and linked them to character symbols we already know and love. Linking Hermione’s name to Hermione Granger (from Harry Potter) was wonderful, as I’m a big Harry Potter fan.

The novel details the story of a young girl named Hermione, the captain of her school’s cheerleading squad, who at the moment leads a perfect life. However, after disaster strikes at a cheerleading camp, everything changes. The powerful message makes us think that society needs to slow down and look at the damage we continue to do to sexual assault victims.

Exit Pursued by a Bear

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.
