Reviewer: Connie Hejl, Teen Services Librarian
This book gives a special insight to what some say is the greatest Starfleet Captain (although Jean Luc Picard might have something to say about that). It covers the story of James Kirk from his birth on the USS Kelvin to his death with the afterword written by Kirk's close friend Spock. In this autobiography we get to see Kirk's successes and failures through his eyes and gain a greater understanding about the man behind the "Great Captain's" facade. Recommended reading for Trekkies.
Reviewer: Samantha Gordano, Librarian II
America is in an interesting point in its history, but this isn’t unique to this time period! Based around the life events of my personal favorite US President, this book is a very interesting look into how some of the old influential families of American history used their power to shape what we know of history. It’s a very good look at the early influence of powerful women in politics!
Reviewer: Samantha Gordano, Librarian II Winter is the stunning finale to the main storyline in the sci-fi/fantasy Lunar Chronicles series. Will Cinder be able to reclaim her proper place on the Lunar throne from her evil aunt Levana? Will Scarlet escape her imprisonment on the moon and reunite with her poor weaponized boyfriend Wolf? Will Thorne regain his sight? Will the poor princess Winter ever be able to stop her terrible hallucinations? Will Iko ever get her smoking hot android body without it getting destroyed? A fun, imaginative, and enthralling tale for teens and adults alike. As the author used to be a fan-fic writer, this whole series is a must read for anyone who grew up a fan of Sailor Moon!
