Ms. Meghan Neyens (Teacher): 

I just finished reading The Whisper Man by Alex North. I liked that it was a psychological thriller with a little bit of horror as well. It kept me on my toes, and I just couldn’t put it down (except when it gave me the chills… I did have to put it down a few times). There were also several unexpected twists.  I would definitely recommend the novel to anyone who enjoys a thriller. I also enjoyed reading his other novel, The Shadows, but I found The Whisper Man much more compelling.”

Mrs. Beigel (Teacher):

“One book that I found entertaining was Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders.  I actually listened to this one on audio and loved that because they used different voices for all the different characters. It’s a fictional novel based off of Lincoln and is a little outside the box. It was a nice mix of humor and serious moments that also get the reader to think a little. The audio version can be hard to follow at times; slowing the play speed may help.”

Robert Fenner (Junior):

“A book that I started and loved was ‘The Heroes of Olympus Book Two: The Son of Neptune’ by Rick Riordan.  What I liked about the book is that it moved at a good pace and never got boring. It introduced us to new characters and we followed their plot from introduction to the end. I would recommend the book to other people as while the story may be a bit simple, the characters and world are very rich and interesting.”

Anna Koerber (Sophomore):

“I read the divergent series and I loved it. I really enjoyed the mystery behind the series and how the story evolved over time. I would definitely recommend it to other students, I couldn’t put the books down.”
