Teen Book Review: California Blue

Title: Califonia Blue

Author: David Klass

Reviewer's Name: n.p.

Home Branch: Bellmawr

Date: 03/21/2006

This book was great!

I loved this book! I highly recommend it! It is about a boy who is on the school track team. He would go into the mill's woods to run everyday. One day he find a cocoon by tripping over something. Because of his interest in insects, he took it home.

His father is ill and may die soon. He is in love with one of his teachers. He has a choice to make: stay with his family or town's people OR help this new species of butterfly to survive. What will he choose?

Recommended Book: Ender's Game

I just finished listening to a great book on CD: Ender's Game. It was published back in 1985, so I don't know why I never read it before! It's a story of Earth in the future. The planet has been attacked twice by aliens called Buggers, and the military are searching desperately for a general that can defeat them when they return for a third time.

Ender Wiggin, a young genius, is recruited when he is six years old and sent to an orbiting battle school to be trained to fight the Buggers. Will he survive the obstacles the teachers set for him? Will he be Earth's saviour?

The CD available from the library is a full cast version and very well acted. We also have several copies of the book in our system. And after you've finished the book you can look forward to the movie. David Benioff, the writer of the screenplay for Troy, has been signed by Warner Bros. to pen the script.
