Jellicoe Road

Jellicoe Road
Melina Marchetta
**** 4 Stars

At age eleven Taylor Markham was abandoned by her mother. At fourteen, she ran away from boarding school, only to be tracked down and brought back by a mysterious stranger. Now seventeen, Taylor's the reluctant leader of her schools underground community, whose annual territory war with the Townies and visiting Cadets has just begun. This year, though, the Cadets are lead by Jonah Griggs, and Taylor can't avoid his intense gaze for long. To make matters worse, Hannah, the one adult Taylor trusts, has disappeared. But if Taylor can piece together the clues Hannah left behind, the truth she uncovers might not just settle her past, but also change her future.

This book was interesting, it was very emotional and sad. I personally liked it, with all the territory and scrimmage stuff. But at times, it got very confusing, very confusing. Like the names would get mixed up or they might switch from the present to the past. Because thats how the story was set up, it was the past and present, the events tied together, so close until they finally collided.
But I thought It was still very good and I strongly recommend it.

Raised By Wolves

Raised By Wolves
Jennifer Lynn Barnes
***** 5 Stars

At the age of four, Bryn watched a rogue werewolf brutally murder her parents. Alone in the world, she was rescued and taken in by the mysterious Callum, the alpha of his werewolf pack. Now fifteen, Bryn's been raised as a human among werewolves, adhering to pack rule (mostly). Little fazes her.

But the pack's been keeping a secret, and when Bryn goes exploring against Callum's direct orders, she finds Chase, a newly turned teen Were locked in a cage. Terrifying memories of the attack on her mom and dad come flooding back. Bryn needs answers, and she needs Chase to get them. Suddenly, all allegiances to the pack no longer matter. It's Bryn and Chase against the werewolf world, whatever the consequences.

This book was soooo good. I didn't think it would be though. You know with all the werewolf stuff already in the reading world, I just thought it would be the same thing. But somehow, Jennifer was able to give it a unique element, by making the werewolves equal parts of man and wolf. Not just in appearance, but also in personality. Which made it extremely interesting. So please, don't judge this book by its cover.
