Name: Maximum Ride: The Angel Expiriment by James Patterson
Genre: Science Fiction
Story Outline: from the back of the book:
Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman, and Angel. Six kids who are pretty normal in most ways - except that they're 98 percent human, 2 percent bird. They grew up in a lab, living like rats in cages, but now they're free. Aside, of course, from the fact that they're prime prey for Erasers - wicked wolflike creatures with a taste for flying humans.
Why do you recommend it: It's a great book and it's really hard to put down. It keeps you interested and the very first page grabs your attention.
Other comment: Go out and read it!

Name: Once Upon A Marigold..author forgotten sorry

Genre: Romance/Fantasy

Story Outline: A prince runs away from his family and is found byu a troll. The troll raises the prince. While the prince is growing up he is falling in love with a princess that lives on the other side of the river. He goes to work at her palace and they end up falling in love. Meanwhile the princess's mother is looking for a wealthy bachelor for the princess. In the end the prince meets up with his brother's he thought he did not have. His brothers were married to the princess's sisters. In the end the princess is married to the prince. Also the princess has a power where she can read minds by touching the person. In the end she gives up her power to get her love, the run-away prince.

Why do you recommend it: It has almost everything. On the cover it self says, a little bit of everything but the kitchen sink. It has romance, sacrifices, misery, fantasy, tragedis and a lot of other good things. It would probably as good writing as harry potter but harry potter is better. But i still recommend ONCE UPON A MARIGOLD.

Other comment: A definite read. If you are into romance than you should definitley read it. It is sort of like a indian love story written by a english writer. YOU MUST READ IT!!!!

Rating(scale of 1-5, 5 being the best): 5/5..than again if i like a book, i really like it if i dont i really dont...so enjoy.
