It is a book with a ton of detail. Be ready to start Bawling. If you haven't watched the movie I highly recommend it.

Patron Book Review ~ Hollow City

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine #2) by Ransom Riggs
Published: 2014
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Fiction, Paranormal,
Description:
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011 - an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled audiences and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it "an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters."

This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine's island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly creepy) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight fantasy fans of all ages.

Review by patron, Anonymous:   
The book is creative and original. It is an intense and gripping story that can be difficult to understand at times.

Patron Book Review ~ All Shook Up

All Shook Up by Shelley Pearsall
Published: 2008
Genre: Young Adult, Realistic Fiction, Humor
Description:
The King of Rock 'n'™ Roll lives! And he's Josh's dad.

When 13-year-old Josh finds out that he has to stay with his dad in Chicago for a few months, he's not too thrilled. But when he arrives at the airport, he's simply devastated. His father - who used to be a scatterbrained but pretty normal shoe salesman - has become . . . Elvis. Well, a sideburnwearing, hip-twisting, utterly-embarrassing Elvis impersonator.

Josh is determined to keep his dad's identity a secret, but on his very first day at his new school, a note appears on his locker. It's signed Elvisly Yours, and instead of a name, a sneering purple smiley face. The secret is out, and when his dad is invited to perform at a special 50s concert at his school, Josh is forced to take drastic action. From award-winning author Shelley Pearsall comes a hilarious novel about discovering the important (and sometimes painful) difference between who you want to be - and who you really are.

Review by patron, Anonymous:   
The book was original, easy to understand, and the characters were unique, but easy to understand.

In the seventh book in the bestselling series, evil scientists are still trying to convince Max that she needs to save the world, this time by providing the genetic link in speeding up the pace of evolution.

Review by patron, Isabelle:
This book is very good and very detailed. With the great details you could picture everything happening. The book is very sad at the end and I don't understand how James Patterson can write this stuff.
