Finn is rescued from the time rangers by his older self, but than finds he must help get rid of Paradox to save the ones he loves even if it means losing them as well.  But when his special cowboy pj's get a hole in them Finn and his friends time travel all over time.

I enjoyed this book so much the wonderful places the little group gets to see and the history they learn and recall from all these cool places, despite the danger they encounter in each spot it would still be cool to see these places. The characters work well each other and the book has so much action and suspense it should keep anyone's interest and reading past their bedtime.

The Rose Code (ADULT AUDIO)

 This book starts in Bletchley Park and the addition of women into the super secret ranks of the enigma code breakers.  This book takes you through the lives of three of these women and the trial and tribulations they must all face during the time of war, where each just wants to make a difference.  

I have always loved stories  of this time period but this book comes with such a different perspective, one of civilian women just wanting to do something for the war effort, something that makes a difference.  The three main characters could not be more different if they tried, but at the same time they bond in ways only they could.  Even when things go really bad they might be mad but still have each others backs.   Even after they defeat the Nazis and the Japanese during WWII their biggest adversary might just come after the  war.   This is a great book that is full of suspense some twists you will see coming, other will be a surprise.  If you happen to get lucky enough to get the audio narrated by Saskia Maarleveld than start it up, and you won't want to get out of your car anytime soon it is that good.  All in all  I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Firekeeper's Daughter (YA) (audio)

 Daunis is a 18 year old who feels she doesn't belong in either world, the Ojibwe world and the rest of the world.  Her one set of grandparents would not allow her Ojibwe fathers name on her birth certificate but she still has learned the way of her people so not quite fully in either other world.  When a new kid comes to town, plays hockey and manages to get on Daunis' brother Levi's team, she starts to fall for this new guy, until at a party one night she sees her best friend get shot and killed, by her meth head ex. Now Daunis finds herself undercover and looking for a new meth.

This is a exciting full of action, and suspense book with a awesome behind the scenes look of the Ojibwe way of things.  Isabella Star LaBlanc is a great narrator of this book, she keeps it going and makes you feel like you are there helping Daunis get through all of the negative to help show her there are positives things to look forward too as well.  This is a book you just can't put down so I hope you all will like it as much as I did.

 What kind of body guard do you want?  Ex-police?  Ex-military? Big goon, scary guy?  Not Veena, who is a Olympic hopeful in snowboarding, she can get big air and do amazing tricks, but she wants someone close to her age and a girl to be her body guard.  In walks Nicole Rossi (Nic), who is young, and a girl but also inexperienced and if she blows this job she can kiss her career goodbye.  Can she keep up, avoid burnout, and pass chemistry, and what is with the vegetable references?

This is a fast paced, action packed, suspenseful book.  I love the characters, they all had great stories of their own.  This story had me  hooked at the beginning and I read it straight through and the finish came all to soon, and left me asking for more.

When We Were Infinite (YA)

 Beth's world is crumbling apart and so all she wants right now is for her small group of friends to be tighter than ever.  However, after seeing something she and a another friend shouldn't have seen at a third  friends house this now threatens the groups close friendships too.   

This book is ok, I will be honest, I was not in the right mood for reading this book at this time.  However, I think teens will find themselves in one of the groups teens, and be able to relate to the problems these kids are facing and that will make this book popular.

Bridge of Souls (City of Ghosts #3) (MG)

Cass and her best friend Jacob (a ghost) are in New Orleans with Cass' parents The Investigators.  But in this city known for the paranormal, death has found Cass and death feels cheated and is trying to rectify this wrong.
 This is the third book in the City of Ghost series and it doesn't disappoint.  This book portrays New Orleans as the city is and the people the way they are.  New Orleans is a city like no other and this book is like no other, the characters in the book are awesome and play their parts well.  I love this series and hope there are many more books on the horizon because they just keep on getting better.
