Teen Book Review: Messenger

Title: Messenger

Author: Lois Lowry

Rate It: 5 out of 5

Review It: An exciting book! The descriptions are so real that they seem to leap off the pages and engulf the reader! Reading about the different "jobs" was very entertaining; Lowry seems to have a natural hand at writing fictional fantasy.

Teen Book Review: Never Cry Wolf

Title: Never Cry Wolf

Author: Farley Mowat

Rate It: 4.5 out of 5

Review It: A marvelous book to enjoy. Farley Mowat's descriptions of his adventures with the wolves open readers' eyes to the little-known world of the wolves in Canada. With minor jokes here and there, Mowat's storytelling is a wonder to behold.
