I Am Malala (Just Kidding) I’m Still LibraryLassie

I hope you all know the story of Malala Yousafzai. If you don’t, well, I must say I’m a bit surprised, but it’s fine, I’ll recap. Malala lived in Swat Valley, Pakistan. The Taliban took over her valley. Most people loved the Taliban, and gave them money and gold, and also did whatever they wanted. Malala knew something wasn’t right, as did her father. The BBC set up a blog with Malala, and under a pseudonym, she wrote about what was happening in Swat Valley. Eventually the Taliban found out about it, and her name, and they shot her, as well as 2 other girls. The book covers this in greater detail.

Malala was born in a school. Her father built it, and it took many years for it to turn a profit. She always valued her learning and her freedom. Most women had to wear heavy clothing, stay indoor, and follow other seemingly strict rules. She competed with “rival” Malka-e-Noor.  tried her best, always studied, and reached for the skies.

But one day, a mullah who called himself a mufti arrived in her town. He tried to control everything and make everything according to his translation of Islam. And it all just went downhill from there. Malala is such an inspiration to us all. She didn’t back down in the face of danger. She fought for her rights. And she wants everyone to have rights. She set up the Malala Fund, which you should definitely check out. And remember, you’re lucky to have such a great education. Value it!

When The End Of The End Is Here…

Today, there are over 9 billion people in the world. (I think) But after the creation of the Partials and the release of RM, nothing was the same. Now there are only 50,000 people left. And they are slowly dying. No one can reproduce. Well, they can, but babies die immediately after being born, due to their non-immunity to the virus RM. In fact, most people died after the release of RM because of non- immunity. So, how can people find the cure to RM? Easy. Just get a ton of subjects to collect data on. What subjects?

Babies. Hence the creation of the Hope Law. Once a girl reaches the age of 18, she must become pregnant. Every year. And there is talk of lowering the age to 16. Kira, a medic at the hospital in the refuge, where the last humans live, is 16. She doesn’t want this to happen. She thinks she can find the cure to RM. And to do that, she would need a Partial. Guess what? Partials are the enemy of humanity.

Partials were created to win a war, but after the war, they were rendered useless. The creators tried to integrate Partials into society, but humans refused to accept them. Eventually, Partials rebelled agiants society, RM was released, and  humans were sent back 200 years. No one has gone near the Partials in over a decade. Now Kira has to go deep into Partial territory to save her sister’s unborn child.

Get ready, because here comes Rapunzel’s Revenge.

Rapunzel was “adopted” by Mother Gothel, but she is always having these strange dreams about these people, always the same. Why do they always make her feel so sad? And then there’s the wall…

What’s Behind The Wall?

There is something behind that wall. Rapunzel doesn’t know what it is, but she wants to find out. So she hatches a daring plan to get over the wall. And she doesn’t like what she sees.

Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library

 

Some people are addicted to smoking. Some are addicted to drugs. I’m seriously addicted to this book. Serisously. It is sooo overdue. I am a BAD LIBRARYLASSIE! (I’m trying to think of what to write, I’m listening to Christmas music, and right now I can’t concentrate. They are playing I Want A Hippopautamus For Christmas, and no one could concentrate with that playing.) But anyway. This book is scary awesome.

Kyle Keeley loves games. Board games, online games, all games. And why shouldn’t he? His brother Mike is super athletic. And his brother Curtis is super smart. Games are the only way Kyle has a chance of winning. Games are where Kyle is equal.

Most games are created by a man called Luigi L. Lemoncello. Barely anyone knows anything about him. He’s a bazillionare. He’s kind of kooky. But he’s the greatest thing to happen to games since… Ever! He is the worlds best game creator.

And Kyle is playing a games when he gets grounded for a week. No Games. Bad. Kyle would go to the library, but his town has no library. (Gosh, poor Kyle) In fact the library was demolished the year Kyle was born. Remember Mr. Lemoncello? He’s building another one. And he is having an essay contest. The 12 people with the essays he thinks are the best will go to the library for a special overnight lock in. But it turns out to be much more than that. It’s a one of a kind game, and the prize for winning is huge. Who will stay? Who will leave? Who will WIN? You’ll have to read the book.

Who knows? You might even learn something!
