Murphy MS 2017 Student Lone Star Recommendations

codehonorCode of Honor by Alan Gratz

Amazing present day story that follows effects terrorism has and has had in the United States. It shows how harsh racism has become and how blind it can make people to the true character of others. Your fear, judgment, and wariness are definitely tested in this quick-paced adventure where Kamran Smith hurries to clear his brother’s name before it is too late. I loved this book, I think it touches a lot of existing problems in our world today; it definitely deserves to be on the Lonestar list. -Chloe Chan


bees Hour of the Bees by Lindsay Eager

I completely agree that the beginning is a tad bit too long, but once i got into it, i really felt like this was a great book. The author makes all the characters seem real and relatable like the moody older sister and the grandpa too, and by the end of the book … because of something ,that i am not going to share for a fear of “readicide” (when one exposes the ending or story arc to someone else reading a book and spoils the experience) consequences, I actually cried. -Ferona Bustani


deathIt’s a Wonderful Death by Sarah J. Schmitt

This book is a really Amazing! I was intrigued throughout the entire book. I love RJ’s character and how she gets the chance to fix her mistakes. Their are mistakes I would like to fix and I am sure everyone wants to fix some of the big mistakes they made in life. The characters in this book are really well written making this book hard to put down. The end of this book is so wonderful I read it twice! I couldn’t believe the turn of events at the end. I hope everyone gets a chance to read this super amazing book. –Madeline Polimerou
