Top 5 of 2015... So Far: Teen Reviewer Lucy's Picks

Every June, we celebrate the year being half over by checking in with our reviewers and seeing what they've loved, so far. 

Today, teen reviewer Lucy shares her faves of the year... so far

The Good Lord Bird by  James McBride
It had an interesting writing style and a fascinating perspective  on John Brown's life.
Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card
The character development was awesome and the shift from the first book was well done.
The Miseduation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth (see more posts here)
 The writing was beautiful, and Cameron was an awesome protagonist.
Airman by Eoin Colfer
They way the main character dealt with the events of the book was fascinating to watch. I loved the little plot twists Colfer introduced.
Half Bad by Sally Green (see more posts here)
As a debut author, Green used her inexperience to her advantage in the best of ways. Its unusual for a debut novel to be this well done and successful, and the premise was a lot of fun.

I second the Speaker for the Dead!!! The whole series by Card is fabulous, but this was especially stirring.

And Airman is just awesome, as I remember it.
