Our Teen Reviewer Trinity Is Back With More Reviews To Share
I should not exist.
But I do.

Like everyone else, Eva and Addie were born sharing a body—two souls woven together. But as they grew, the whispers began. Why aren't they settling? What if they end up as a hybrid? Finally, Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn't. . . .

For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life, trapped in a body she can no longer control—until two other hybrids learn her secret and offer her a way to move again. When the teens are caught, they are shipped off to a remote facility determined to stamp out the recessive souls . . . permanently. Eva and Addie must escape before they lose each other forever.

Trinity says: 
"In What’s Left of Me, children are born with two people inside their body. One almost always disappears by the time the child is ten, but those who never settle are taken by the government. Addie and Eva haven’t settled and Eva remains in their head, although she is left unable to control the body. This book was an extremely pleasing book considering all of the usual dystopian cliches. It had a completely original plot with very interesting characters. I believe that everyone and anyone will be able to find something to enjoy in this book."
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
Trinity says:
"In this twist on a common fairy tale, Cinder is a skilled mechanic cyborg. She lives with her stepmother and two sisters. When there is a plague around the city, she meets Prince Kai. There have been no plague survivors, and as the plague spreads Cinder will try to stop it. This book was closely based off of Cinderella, but has added many pieces to the plot to keep the novel interesting. Overall, I enjoyed this book because of how the author brought together many different themes, including romance, action, science fiction and fairy tale."
Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . 
After. Nothing is ever the same.

Trinity says:
"Looking for Alaska is about  boy named Miles (also called Puge, ironically because of how skinny he is) who is looking for a 'Great Perhaps'. He decides to go to Culver Creek boarding school, where he meets many new friends including Alaska Young. She is a fantastic genius and hilarious girl that Miles is constantly chasing after. 
This book was an amazing read because it was written in a format circling around the main event, showing the time and thoughts before and afterwards. All of the characters were advanced and thoughtful, especially when they showed common, everyday faults in their personalities. 
I recommend this for anyone willing to shed a tear for the characters within this novel in return for a phenomenal story."
