Miss Print’s Re-Prints: October 2007 Edition, Vol. 1

missprintreprintMiss Print’s Re-Prints is a weekly feature that will post on Saturday. Each week I’ll highlight reviews I wrote during a previous month in this blog’s run.

Currently I am Re-Printing 2007 posts.

October 2007: Volume 1

  • Catalyst coverOctober 3, 2007: Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson“Anderson does a great job of capturing the anxiety and drama that surrounds the college application/acceptance process. She also creates a compelling study of the silent, overachiever that seems to be at every high school. More importantly, Anderson shows that those achievements don’t always come without a cost.”

 

 

  • A Well-Timed Enchantment coverOctober 10, 2007: A Well-Timed Enchantment by Vivian Vande Velde–“I first read this book when I was sixteen. I loved it so much I read it twice back to back. A Well-Timed Enchantment is one of those books that never get old. You can read it again and again and the story is still just as good as the first time.”

 

 

  • Extras coverOctober 16, 2007: Extras by Scott Westerfeld–“At the same time, Extras is a very timely book. In a world where everyone seems to have some kind of website and is trying to be more popular or more famous, it’s fascinating to read about a city where everything literally depends on your reputation.”

 

 

 

  • Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City coverOctober 17, 2007: Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City by Kirsten Miller–“Some books can be described as noir films, others are color movies. This one is definitely a cartoon. But a really well-animated, thoughtful cartoon. It’s silly, but in this case that isn’t a bad thing.
