Seeds of Anger

Seeds of Anger

Seeds of Anger begins with a 15 year old boy whose name is Sonny. With his father dead and his mother dying, their income is getting very low. However when a stranger rents a plot of their land and moves in, things seem to change.

I love this book because I can relate to the main character Sonny, he’s very curious but seems to be able to manage his curiosity throughout the book. I think he’s strong with handling his dad’s death, caring for his mother, and all while he is in... the top 10 of the brightest people in his grade.

In the book Sonny gets his first crush on a girl; while becoming involved in stuff he really shouldn't be in; like who is the stranger really? Why is he here? Is he dangerous?

Near the end of the book there are many plot twist that includes death, blackmail, and marriage; as everything is revealed.

I enjoyed this book because I thought it was sweet yet mysteries; it’s a good book.

Finding Angel by Kat Heckenbach

Finding Angel

Finding Angel’s first chapter is mysterious. I didn't really understand what was going on, but I kept reading and I am glad I did. The book introduces Angel, the main character, she is an orphan. Now Angel has just arrived home, and her brother found a rare beetle and asks her to find out what she can about the beetle. She looks at the beetle closely and for some reason she can't explain the pattern on the back of the beetle matches the one on her bracelet.

Her investigation of this mysterious bug leads to her meeting someone who knows stuff about her, things she didn't even know! She discovers that she has a magical talent! She discovers her talent to be able to find things no matter where they are.

What I liked about the characters is I could connect to each one in a different way. Also I thought the plot was good. I enjoyed reading about the different challenges Angel was going through trying to find her parents and remember her past (from before she was 6.)

The Mind Reader by Lori Brighton

Some people think that being able to read someone's mind would be cool. but think about it, having to hear everyone's thoughts all the time, having to hide it, and always knowing what someone is thinking whether its good or bad? That's what it was like for Cameron, the teenager who is the main character in Lori Brighton's book, "The Mind Reader".
This book starts off with Cameron reading a man's mind. but then it goes on to explain that she has no control  over her ability. Cameron is a girl who is scared, unsure about her abilities and is sure who she can trust. The twist comes when she discovers a body and learns that there is one person whose mind she cant read, All of a sudden her life changes. I would hate to spoil the rest so I'll continue on how I thought about it.

Now this book is a mystery, and I don't usually read mysteries, but this book sucked me in and made me feel like I was there. I could not put it down, the ending had me wanting to know what happens next.

rating: 5 Mo's

Rea of Hope

Rea of Hope by W.J. May

The book begins with Rea Kerrigan on the bus and thinking about the words her Uncle had said before dropping her off at her new school. We find out that she used to live in Britain (where she is now) before she moved years ago. Rea than relives a memory giving us a hint into why she had moved away and why her parents are dead.

When she arrives at her new school (Guilder Boarding School) people seem to already know her or at least know her name. Apparently both of her parents were part of a secret group of people who have something that is called a ta’too similar to a tattoo; accept it appears on their 16 birthday. This ta’too describes their power or what their ability is.

So how do these people know her parents? Why do they dislike her even though they have just met her? Who’s her friend and who’s her enemy? This book has a lot of  plot twists and turns. I loved the main character I thought she was interesting and head-strong. I was really surprised at how this book ends. But the ending just made me want to read the rest of the series as soon as possible.

Hannah Roberts


My name is Hannah Elizabeth Roberts and I am 14 and love, LOVE to read. My favorite authors include Rick Riordan, WJ May and CS Lewis. Anyway you get the point. My dad is an author, accountant and loves to read too. He has set my assignment for my home school class to read new Young Adult books, write a review for them and post a video about what I thought.

He called this blog Mo Book Reviews because when I was born, my hair was stuck straight up in a Mo-Hawk style and he has called me Mo to this day. SO if you would like to send a 14 year an ecopy of your latest book I will read it and review it and post a video blog about what I thought of it. (Don't worry I'm not mean.) I will have a rating system of one MO to five MO's, like stars but with my dad's weird sense of humor.

Remember, I'm 14, not 41, so please no intensely romantic to the point of being too grown up or my dad will bust a blood vessel. Contact me here at the blog, I'm hoping to get started with my first new YA book Dark Nebula by WJ May. Hope to hear from you soon.
