"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.

"Lifting the Sky" by Mackie d'Arge

Ever since her dad left the familywhen she was small, 12-year-old Blue has continually moved from place to place with her ranch-hand mother. Finally, Blue can hardly believe her luck - her mom has been hired to manage the ranch of Blue's dreams - the house and mountains even match a drawing that Blue once drew. In short order, Blue acquires a pair of orphaned calves to take for, a friend from the neighboring reservation, and the strange and wonderful ability to see the auras - the colors, lights, and energies - given off by all living things. Blue begins to realize her special talents might actually enable her to find her place in the world when she learns she can manipulate the auras to help heal injuries. Blue's "dream-come-true" is threatened, however, when her and her mother's past starts to catch up with them.
I'll probably never live on an isolated ranch in Wyoming, but after reading this book, I think I have a good idea what it would be like. I love the ability of some authors who create characters so real and believable that one feels one can actually go track them down for a good visit. Blue is such an appealing character, one can't help but hope that things work out for her. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves animals and nature, or who is wondering about their own place in the world. Plus, who couldn't use a little virtual vacation in the mountains of Wyoming?
I'd rate this book FIVE out of FIVE stars.

"Ruined" by Paula Morris

Rebecca, newly transplanted to New Orleans to live with an aunt, feels like a fish out of water. Battling homesickness for New York City and her traveling father, Rebecca must also deal with the cliques in her new school, which seem to be focused entirely on the importance of local family history, social class, and the upcoming Mardi Gras season of parties and parades. Although at first content to be an outsider, Rebecca's interest and involvement with the popular group is intensified after she becomes friends with a mysterious girl who seems to be living in the cemetary. Rebecca becomes intent to solve the mystery of her new friend and the 150-year-old curse associated with a local mansion.
Reading "Ruined" is the next best thing to an actual visit to the city of New Orleans. Morris skillfully describes the neighborhoods, streets, and cemetaries of the city and makes them part of the action and atmosphere. One can easily imagine the frenzy and excitement of attending one of the Mardi Gras parades while reading of it in this book. The mystery that embroils Rebecca snakes its way through the city, its parties, and its inhabitants, wrapping itself ever tighter around our heroine.
Although some of the action seems at times to be a little too outlandish to be believable, the nifty plot twists keep one reading. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery involving history, ghosts, and curses! Rated FOUR and a HALF out of FIVE stars.

"Green Glass Sea" by Ellen Klages

This book, "Green Glass Sea" was such a good book! It is one of my favorites! This book is set in the 1940's,during World War II. It is about this young girl, Dewey, who lived with her Nana, until her dad comes to get her, to bring her to this military base, where the best scientists and mathematicians are working on "a gadget" to help their side of the war. At this base, that is top secret and guarded by the best, Dewey goes through so much. She meets a girl named Suze, and they become the best of friends, when they realize some things about "the gadget", and to find out what that is, you will have to read the book!!!
So, if you do read "Green Glass Sea", I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did, and if I could rate this book-it would be 5out of 5 stars.
