The Lottery by Beth Goobie

Everyone thinks of the lottery as being a good thing right? You buy a ticket, you win money, blah blah blah, you are rich. Well, the answer now is no. The lottery is not good. In "The Lottery" by Beth Goobie, Sal has the unfortunate job of being the school's lottery winner. But, she doesn't get any money.The Lottery winner in her school gets chosen every year, and for one year that person (the lottery winner) has to do tasks for the infamous Shadow Council (so infamous, teachers even knock before they enter the club room). But so what, a couple of tasks over the period of a year? Well, the person who is chosen as a lottery winner ultimately becomes the school outcast, losing every friend in threat of the Shadow Council. But, no one can stand up to them. So, after every period of the lottery winner is over, that person is accepted back by their friends, actually talked to, and just has to forget how their "friends" just happened to forget about them for a year. This may not be so bad for some people, but imagine talking to someone you don't know, and when they look at you, they acquire a stare of fear. Then they make an excuse to get away from you. well, to figure out how Sal gets through her year as the lottery winner you have to read "The Lottery" by Beth Goobie.

This book was very good, and I give it a five out of five. It keeps you wondering what Sal will have to do next, and if anyone will talk to her. I recommend this book to everyone.

"Artemis Fowl" by Eoin Colfer

The Fowls have always been using some sort of dastardly tricks in order to gain money. Artemis Fowl the second is no exception. After his father died, or went missing as Artemis believes, Artemis's mother went a little looney. As in, she sees and hears things that aren't there and replays moments of when her husband was alive. Artemis didn't exactly believe in fairies or any of that for a while, but something got him thinking. Pots of gold. He decided to test his theory, knowing that goblins and trolls were real. He finally landed something. He and his butler, Butler, went out to find such a fairy that would give him the money that he wanted. This turned out to be a success. Holly Short, a LEPrecon officer, went out to regain her fairy powers from not doing so in a long time. She found a nice desolate spot and, before she knew it, she was Artemis's captive. After being sedated and detained in the Fowl manor the other fairies found out, especially her commanding officer, Root, who was not happy whatsoever. In a chat with Commander Root, Artemis said if he got the gold he wanted he would let Holly go free. Root accepted, but one of the other fairies almost ruined his plan. Almost. Holly still lived and Artemis was still alive, along with his butler, and they got the gold they wanted. Holly didn't want Artemis hurt so she tried to talk him out of taking the gold, fairies would do anything for their gold. Artemis finally let Holly go free, along with half the gold he got from the delivery. The fairies decided to kill everyone inside the manor so they could get back their gold and make sure that someone as dangerous as Artemis Fowl would never do that kind of thing to the fairies ever again. But Artemis found a way to live, he drugged himself, his butler, and his butler's sister so they would sleep, that way the "blue rinse" would not kill them. The fairies were amazed. Artemis was relieved.
