Murphy MS Lone Star Recommendations (Pt III)

girliusedtobe The Girl I Used to Be by April Henry 

Very suspenseful and intriguing story. It starts out with a girl running through the woods being chased by a killer and only gets more exciting from there. Olivia (Ariel) is trying to find out what really happened when she was 3 years old when her mom died in front of her. Great murder mystery.-Laura Mullen

I think this book deserves the Lone star award. This book is very engrossing the book was hard to stop reading. The Girl I Used To Be is about how the main character’s parents were murdered and how she returns to her home town the seek justice for her parents. However the main character Ariel pretends to be someone who she isn’t Olivia. This book I a wonderful mystery that I highly recommend. -Madeline Polimerou


P.S. I Like You by Kasie West 

I LOVED this book. I also predicted what would happen near the beginning but it still left enough mystery that I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I really enjoyed the plot of this book. If you’re looking for a good modern-day love story, I’d definitely recommend this one. P.S: I DEFINITELY recommend this book for the lone star list. -Emily Tran

This book was amazing!!! This book was so well written, I had such a hard time putting it down. I loved how it was a sweet romantic story, but it isn’t too cutesy (so boys can read it too). The characters all connected to each other so well. This was the perfect love story and the note passing I thought was so cute. I DEFINITELY think this book should make it on the lone star list. -Chi Dau

Wow. Okay, as an adult I had this one figured out after the first three chapters, but you ….less experienced in love….might take till the big reveal chapter to predict the ending. I love the chemistry love letters. I wish I had been in school with the love of my life and had been able to write letters to him. -Laura Mullen

Absolutely adorable! This story is so relatable, told from the point of view of a very sarcastic junior 😉 In an attempt to heal the ever growing pain that is Chemistry, Lily starts writing notes back and forth with a mystery boy. He’s funny, but who is he really? Find out in P.S. I Like You! -Victoria Duong

I couldn’t put this book down. I could predict who it was at the beginning but it still had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The characters were so cute. This TOTALLY should get the award! –Catherine Ta
