Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant

Image result for zenn diagram bookOkay, I’ve got your next great read!

Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant is such a fun book to read. It’s about senior Eva Walker who is a math genius. She isn’t popular, but she’s fine with that because she has a super power. Whenever she touches people (or if she even touches their belongings), she sees a vision of their emotions and childhoods. She has spent her whole life trying to avoid touching people because her super power is a lot to deal with and it makes it hard for her to connect with others.

This all changes when she meet the new boy in school, Zenn. He needs her help in math and goes to her for tutoring, but the more they get to know about each other, the more they are drawn to each other.

Eva is funny and self-deprecating, and such a fun character. If you’re looking for a good romance with a bit of a twist, try this one out. You won’t regret it!

Shooter by Caroline Pignat

Currently, I am reading Shooter by Caroline Pignat and it is amazing!! I seriously cannot put it down!!

Set in a high school in BC, five students find themselves locked in the boys bathroom during a lockdown. They are five different kinds of people and feel like they have nothing in common. As the minutes tick by, they become a little restless and start to talk about their lives. Not only do they learn about each other, but they also learn, to their horror, that this is still a drill! There is really is a shooter in the school.

Told by the five points of view, the story weaves together well and it’s hard to put down. This book was also one of the Riot Reads in the Richmond High Schools this year. Be sure to check it out!

Once, In a Town Called Moth by Trilby Kent

I’m currently reading Once, In a Town Called Moth by Trilby Kent, and it’s a pretty good read!

Ana grew up in a tiny Mennonite colony in Bolvia, where everyone treats each other like family. But when her mother mysteriously flees the colony, Ana’s father forces her to leave as well. Now in Toronto, Ana must learn what it’s like to be a teen in Canada, which seems completely foreign to her.

The story switches back and forth between Ana’s present time in Toronto and her past in the colony. As the mystery surrounding her mother’s disappearance becomes more complex, so does Ana’s understanding of her past in the colony and her present in Toronto. As the reader, you have to figure out how the puzzle pieces fit together.
