Citation: Muchamore, Robert. Recruit. Place of publication not identified: Simon & Schuster , 2016. Print.: This Book is by far my favorite book of all time. This is because this book kicks off an amazing serious which features teenagers serving as teenage spies who go around saving the world all the while keeping up with an everyday life. One of the reasons I like this book is because of all the British lingo and it's just a switch up from the basic Americano lifestyle. A summary of the book is that James Adams the main character is offered with an ultimatum, to live in an old orphanage or to become a teenage spy. As he ventures through grueling trials and runs through backwater towns he starts to learn the life of a spy
Citation: Grisham, John. Kid lawyer. New York: Dutton, 2010. Print.: This book is about the young Theo Boone who attempts to fit the role of a real-life lawyer and do this while solving mini-mysteries. In particular, this book is the start of the entire series and kicks off with Theo trying to solve a murder mystery. One of the reasons this book made my top five is that it's completely different than your normal spy mystery and it adds a new perspective to it. For instance, explaining the legal aspect of it so the reader can actually understand what the prisoner's sentence is. And it's just a very intriguing story which is a little slower paced yet still captivating.

Citation: Riordan, Rick. The trials of Apollo. Los Angeles: Disney-Hyperion, 2016. Print.: This is book is a spin-off series from Rick Riordian's Percy Jackson and main demi-god story line books and instead features the god of Apollo. Now it is not taken in the perspective of a god but by a mere mortal because in the story Apollo has lost his godly powers and must now prove himself by succeeding in a set of trials to regain. The reasons I chose this book is because it's written by a favorite author of mine and it's nice to see how the author tries to now write through the views of a Greek god compared to a regular teen. For instance, I find it funny how in the book Rick Riordian uses many 21st century teen lingo and shows how the god Apollo takes them because he has never been introduced to this form of speak. Plus, I just enjoy how action packed it is and how well it's written.
Citation: Derf. My friend Dahmer a graphic novel. New York, NY: Abrams ComicArts, 2012.

And it talks about how Dahmer was like before he started to become the serial killer he was and how his metamorphosis began. The reason I chose this book is because overall it was really interesting just seeing how someone who knew Dahmer personally viewed him. Plus, I didn't know much about dahmer before hand so it was nice to gain some more information on him other than the fact he is a serial killer. Overall, the main reasons it made it onto my list is because I always enjoy graphic novels and it was interesting to see Dahmer's life from another view besides the media.
