Because this is my final book review, as well as a committee vote, I am gathering opinions on the books most enjoyed by the students of FMA-XII.

The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

This is a story about a society that closely resembles that of Plato’s Republic, in which every year, 28 children are selected and forced to fight to the death for the entertainment of The Capitol. Jordan Brewster chose this book because “It’s full of intense action and provides an inspiring illustration of “the power of one.”

We the Living, by Ayn Rand

This book contains elements of Ayn Rand’s own life, but is a powerful fictional account of life in Communist Russia. Jacob chose this book because, “It is full of romance and adventure as well as insights into life in a Communist nation. It’s the first book I read by Ms. Rand, and I highly recommend it.”

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson

This is a book about a young girl investigating a series of dangerous cases. This was one of the favorites of many of the FMA students. Ralph chose it because, “It is one of the most intriguing and thrilling books I have ever read.”

The Way of the Shadows, by Brent Weeks

This novel follows the progression of a young “guild rat” on his path to becoming a warrior and assassin. Mitch chose this book because, “It has helped me to know many truths about life and shows that situations can always be changed, no matter how trying they may be.”

Crazy for the Storm, by Norman Ollestad

This is a true story about a 12-year-old boy traveling in a small plane with his father. When the plane crashes, he is the only one left alive. Liam chose this book because, “Its events involved interests that I have. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good intriguing story.”
