"Anacaona" by Edwidge Danticat

Anacaona is an interesting book. Anacaona was the princess of an island of Xatagua in Haiti in the 1490's. She has a brother named Behechio, Baba and Bibi (mother and father). She moves to another island called Maguana when she marries Chief Canabo and becomes queen of that island. She trains to defeat the Killan and to protect her land from all harm. Later she has a baby . When some white men come to attack and take away their gold Anacaona, Canabo and their warriors defeat them. She defeated the white men to not only protect her land but to protect her baby. She meets a woman from Maguana and makes friends with her. When ever she needs help she is there for her. I highly recommend the book Anacaona to you.
I give this book five stars.

"Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer

Bella Swan is moving to Forks, Washington { practically the rainiest place on Earth} from Phoenix, Arizona, to live with her dad, Charlie. But on the first day of school Bella notices a table of kids anything but normal. But it's not that they are weird. They are more beautiful than anything Bella has ever seen. The best part is that one of them actually notices her. He is probably the most beautiful of all to Bella, with his bronze hair and pale skin. But then he glares at her for no reason with horrible black eyes, and he looks pained just sitting next to her in biology. The next day he is gone, and every day he is gone Bella wonders if it was all her fault.

Twilight was so awesome. I give it 5 Stars all the way. I think many people would love this book. So many people are already reading it because whenever I'm in the library it is never there. People who love romance and vampire books would love this book.

"The Diary of Anne Frank" by Anne Frank

As you can tell from the title, this book is in fact the diary of Anne Frank, a young girl that died in a Concentration Camp during the Holocaust.

For her 13th birthday, Anne gets a diary and writes in it as much as she can for two years as her and 7 other hide out in "The Secret Annex" for 25 months. Through-out the book, Anne writes so many detailed entries that you feel as if you were there with Anne and talking with her.

I enjoyed this story very much. I got a very good feel of what the time period was like and how wretched WW2 was. I would rate this Non-Fiction book a 5 out of 5 stars and would recommend this book to any reader.

"Demon Keeper" by Royce Buckingham

This book is about a kid named Nat. He runs a house full of demons all by himself.When he goes off on a date with a girl.A demon called the beast gets out .
Also a mystery man comes can Nat handle the pressure?

I thought this book was so awesome I did not want to put it down.One of the most scariest parts were when the beast killed some people.A funny part was when a demon got put in the microwave. I laughed so hard a how it happened it was so funny. It is a good book for the people who like humor/horror. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!
