"The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp" by Rick Yancey

This book ROCKS!!!!!!!! It has something for everyone. It is the story of Alfred Kropp a (according to the book) big, dumb screw-up. His mother died when he was 12 and he lives with his under-paided night-gaurd uncle. His whole live changes when his uncle meets a man willing to pay them $1,000,000 if they retrive a sword for him. They do but they shouldn't have. It sets off a chain of events that no one would predict! Really though this is a great book! I give it a 5 of 5! Absoulutly awesome!

"Leviathan" by Scott Westerfeld

This book is awesome!!! It is about a alternate reility World War I! In this version the Central Powers had gaint metal walkers! (What is up with bad guys and walkers!? LOL) The Allies on the other hand had found a way to breed mutant animals! They used those for air and land transport. Anyway the book switches between the point-of-view of Alek, the son of the ruler of Austria-Hungary, and Deryn, a young girl secretly in the British army. THey're adventures take them up and down through dangerous terrain and battles! All in all this is a great read! I give it a 43/4 of 5.
