Our New Teen Review, Trinity, Has Some Great Books To Tell You About

The highly anticipated third book in Kiera Cass's #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series, The One will captivate readers who love dystopian YA fiction and fairy tales. The One is perfect for the fans who have followed America's whirlwind romance since it began--and a swoon-worthy read for teens who have devoured Veronica Roth's Divergent, Ally Condie's Matched, or Lauren Oliver's Delirium.

The Selection changed America Singer's life in ways she never could have imagined. Since she entered the competition to become the next princess of Illea, America has struggled with her feelings for her first love, Aspen--and her growing attraction to Prince Maxon. Now she's made her choice . . . and she's prepared to fight for the future she wants.

Find out who America will choose in The One, the enchanting, beautifully romantic third book in the Selection series

Trinity says:
"In the final book in the Selection series, America has finally pledged her heart to Prince Maxon, but must explain this to her former boyfriend, Aspen. As the competition for the crown is getting narrower towards the end, the prince is seemingly distant. This was an emotional and romantic ending to the brilliant series. I recommend this book to teenage girls, but only if you have already read The Selection and The Elite."

When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q.

Printz Medalist John Green returns with the trademark brilliant wit and heart-stopping emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of readers.
Trinity says:
"Quentin has always had unrequited love for his neighbor Margo. He thinks he finally has a chance with her when she needs help getting revenge on her friends. When she disappears before graduation, he makes it a mission to find her using only her extremely unexplainable clues. This was an amazing and original love story filled with complex and mysterious characters. Paper Towns had a queer but pensive plot with a message of hope." 

"You must never do anything that might expose our secret. This means that, in general, you cannot form close bonds with humans. You can speak to us, and you can always commune with the Ocean, but you are deadly to humans. You are, essentially, a weapon. A very beautiful weapon. I won't lie to you, it can be a lonely existence, but once you are done, you get to live. All you have to give, for now, is obedience and time..."

The same speech has been given hundreds of times to hundreds of beautiful girls who enter the sisterhood of sirens. Kahlen has lived by these rules for years now, patiently waiting for the life she can call her own. But when Akinli, a human, enters her world, she can't bring herself to live by the rules anymore. Suddenly the life she's been waiting for doesn't seem nearly as important as the one she's living now.

Trinity says:
"The ocean has given each of these girls a second chance at life because She needs to eat… souls. The job of each of the siren is to do whatever necessary to sink a ship, by using their singing to disguise obstacles in order to sink the ship and feed the Ocean. When one of these girls, Kahlen, secretly falls in love with a human, she will risk it all for him. 

This was a fantastic romance book, and the plot was extremely unpredictable but thoughtful. I recommend this for anyone from around 14 and up ready to shed a tear."
