Virals by Kathy Reichs
Tory Brennan and her friends, who are total science geeks, are exposed to a canine parvovirus when
they rescue a dog from the medical testing facility. This virus made their senses even stronger than
before. Using their new heightened senses, they set out to solve a cold case murder, which happened
50 years ago. However, to find the answer to how they got their powers they must solve it and get
what they need quick…..before someone else dies. Follow Tory and her friends as they lie, hide, and
fight to find the answers they’re looking for. Tory’s life may seem easy on the outside but what is going
through her head is a different story. This book pulled me in as if it was quicksand, the way Kathy
Reichs’ writing keeps the story interesting all the way through. Every time the page turns there is a
new mystery or some kind of information you weren’t expecting. This book pulled me in and kept me
at the edge of my seat until the very end.
Eve & Adam by Michael Grant Katherine Applegate
Evening Spiker (a.k.a Eve) though everything and everyone where the same. All of that changed when
she had the accident. Eve’s leg is injured badly and cannot be moved and Eve thinks she is going to

occupied, but this is no ordinary project. This project she is instructed to make a human, a perfect
human just for her. Howeve,r what happens when she falls in love the handsome teenage lab assistant
Solo instead? See how Solo and Eve try to find answers about themselves and their families. This
book contains love, drama, and betrayal as they get closer and closer to the answers they seek. This
book gave me the chills while I was reading it, there was so much action and drama as I follow their
adventure. I also loved how their love was processing throughout the book as well.
