The Vampire Diaries
L. J. Smith
Things That Are
Andrew Clements
Science Fiction and Children's Literature
Again, Clements wrote a book I cannot forget. I really loved this book, but I think it was shorter, and not as much happened. I don't know if I missed some parts, or read really fast, but I think this book was much shorter than the others. I liked it, but not as much as Things Not Seen, and Things Hoped For. I think those books kind of overpower this book. This book was good, I'm not saying it was bad, it just didn't have as much of a story as the other ones. And it didn't fit in as much. Clements writing is really good, and I like the way he writes. I also like the other books a little more because there is a little more going on, just a little more action. I like a little more action because it hooks you a little more. I don't like too much action, but action is always good in my opinion. This book was enjoyable, and I'm glad I read it. I think that there probably should have been more to the story, maybe a new character makes an appearance, or something goes wrong with some plan, or there is some strange phone call, or something that could be going on while this is going on. I like stories that have two stories going on, and then they intertwine together in the end, and you get what was happening all along.
