Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

First I must tell you: this story is confusing, jumbled, and difficult to put together at times. It has excerpts from a different story in random places, and those excerpts are not in chronological order.
That being said.
I absolutely adored this book.

This is the tale of Taylor Markham, whose mother left her at a Seven Eleven and never came back. Now, Taylor goes to the Jellicoe School, and is the leader of one of their Houses, and the unofficial leader of the ongoing War.
You see, each year, the Cadets come and camp near Jellicoe School grounds for six weeks. And during that time, the land is split between the Townies, the Cadets, and the students. There are rules written in the Little Purple Book that dictate how trades, invasions, and trespassers are to be dealt with.
And this is fine. This is all fine for Taylor. Except... The leader of the Cadets is the boy she ran away alongside when she tried to leave Jellicoe when she was fourteen. She told him much more than she should have, and he ended up calling the school, and having the Brigadier come and get them.
And now, Hannah, the woman who rescued her from the 7-11, has left, and without her, Taylor has no one to run to.

As you read this book, you get to know more about Taylor's past, and it is written in such a way that it lets you unravel it with her.

This is another above-four-stars book!

Allegiant By Veronica Roth

Allegiant is an amazing book! It is the third book of the Divergent series. I read this book very quickly, it is a book that you cannot put down. I loved how the characters changed throughout the book and the series.
I recommend this book but read the two other books (Divergent and Insurgent) before you read it.
HAPPY READING!

The Omnivore's Dilemma Young Readers Edition by Michael Pollan


This is an outstanding nonfiction book that tells you everything you need to know about food, where it comes from, how it evolved into what it is today, and more. This was the first nonfiction book I actually thoroughly enjoyed! If you're looking for a nonfiction book, because you HAD/HAVE to read one like me, I suggest you choose "The Omnivore's Dilemma Young Readers Edition!"
