This is one you can pick up and skip around until you find something you think is particularly funny - some of the answers are funnier than others, of course. Basically, this is the perfect bathroom book. One you can read in short bursts of time.
F this Test includes silly test answers in the following categories: English, Science, Psychology and Sociology, Performing Arts, History, Math and Economics, Geography, and Extra Credit. Some of the answers are really clever! A few had me laughing out loud.
If you like this one, be sure to find the other two, F in Exams, and F is for Effort. (less)

Especially since she didn't know anything about it. Being saved by sexy Lukas and Jared and whisked away to the Legion's lair leaves Kennedy's head spinning. At first she thinks the others are crazy, but after witnessing the spirits for herself she begins to feel like she belongs.
Let me tell ya! This is a creepy book. Also, it proved to me that my dislike for cats is totally valid.
The ghosts get creepier and creepier as the story progresses, ending with a frightening confrontation with many angry spirits that reside in an abandoned prison. Kennedy uses her special ability of a photographic memory to get them out of trouble, but even though they think they are doing the right thing, they might be making things worse.
I can't wait for the sequel, UNMARKED, which comes out October 7, 2014.(less)

Eel is a fantastic main character - a sweet young man working as hard as he can to take care of a younger brother and make a better life for himself. The problem? Not everyone is as honest as Eel. When Eel is accused of theft, he is forced to leave his steady job. Amazingly, one of the worst disasters in London gives Eel the best opportunity of his life.
When Cholera strikes the Soho district the people are under the common assumption that the miasma was the cause - meaning that the filthy air they breathed was the cause of the sickness.
Eel watches the people around him fall ill and die. He finds himself working as the assistant to Dr. John Snow, a doctor who doesn't believe in the Miasma theory. Instead he believes the cholera is being spread by drinking contaminated water from the Broadstreet Pump.
The town council doesn't believe Dr. Snow's theory and want proof before they will agree to take the handle off of the pump. They give Dr. Snow only a few days to gather the information he needs to prove the water is causing the deaths. Eel is a great help. He knows the people in the community and is trusted more than Dr. Snow.
Deborah Hopkinson has taken actual events from this terrible time in history and created a very interesting teen and tween novel. I feel like I learned so much while listening to this book. (less)
