One Lonely Degree by C.K. Kelly Martin

     One Lonely Degree by C.K. Kelly Martin is one of the best books I have ever read.  Throughout the whole book, I was on an emotional rollercoaster.  I cried, I laughed, and I was angry.
      The main character, Finn, has been best friends with Audrey for a long time.  Audrey is the only one that she can tell absolutely everything to and not have to worry about being judged.  But all of this changes when Finns' childhood bestfriend, Jersy, moves back to town.  Not only does Finn fall for him at first, but after a while Audrey does too.  Then one day, Jersy admits he likes Audrey back.  But after getting caught doing some not so nice stuff by her parents, Audrey is shipped off to her cousins house for the summer, both Jersy and Finn are left with nobody to hang with but eachother.  What happens with this summer is anyones guess...
     I really enjoyed this book and reccomend it to anybody.

Wake by Lisa McMann

     Wake by Lisa McMann is a very intriguing book. I started reading it in the morning one day, and by the end of the day, I was already finished with it.  The whole time I was reading it, I couldnt put it down.  Wake is definetely a very addicting book. 
     Wake is about a poor girl with an uncaring mother who unwillingly is goes into peoples dreams.  This has happened to her ever since she was a small girl, and she doesnt know what makes her do this or how to stop it.  Scared and not knowing what to do, she doesnt tell anybody about it, not even her best friend, Carrie.  At first this tactic works perfectly well but after a little while, when she starts entering one boys dreams who seems to notice that something is up, things start to fall apart for her.
     I would definetely reccomend this book to anyone who likes a good read.  Even if it is a short book, McMann taught me quite a few lessons as well as entertained me while it lasted.  I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book!
