Teen Review By: Samantha L.

Rating: 4/5

What is the book about?

In my book, Bella goes to live with her dad for a while in Forks. In Forks, she falls in love with Edward Cullen who is strange. Later she finds out he is a vampire but she is not scared. She is in love.

What did you like/dislike about it?

I liked the romance between Edward and Bella. It was interesting and sometimes strange.

Who would you recommend it to?

I recommend this book to teens who love fictional love stories.


Young Reader’s Choice Award Winners May 11, 2009

pyjamasThe winners of the YRC awards were announced recently. Thanks to everyone who voted! No surprises with the senior division winner, which won in the Edmonton area by a landslide. I have to confess that I was pulling for The Book Thief by Marcus Zuzak, which is one of my favourite books. I was also quite thrilled that The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne won. I imagine that the increased exposure from the recent movie helped it to get noticed…

Check out our website to find out about the 2010 nominees!

Junior Division:
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo

Intermediate Division:
The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
