This book made me “More Happy Than Not”

Claire Dorsch, MVC Managing Editor

February 15, 2018

Major spoiler alerts ahead.   In search of the best LGBT books in the Mt. Vernon High School’s library, I came across “More Happy Than Not.” An Eliot Rosewater Nominee, Adam Silvera’s debut novel explores the role that memories play in people’s identity and how parts of people canno...

Reading is one thing I do a lot of. The most recent book I have read is “Need” by Joelle Charbonneau. This novel takes place in Wisconsin specifically with the students at Nottawa High School.

Time traveling pirate ships, a historical Hawaii setting, and a supposed love triangle; if that is not a recipe for a page-turner, I do not know what is. The title of this book? Heidi Heilig’s “The Girl from Everywhere” tells the tale of Nixie, a sixteen-year-old with a not-so-typical adolescen...

The book truly is better than the movie

Hannah Warfel, Features Editor

April 20, 2017

Books and the movies made based off of those books can be very different. One of these book and movie duos is “Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.” Now, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the Percy Jackson books. I love all 17 of them, but the movies aren’t my favorite movies in the whole...

Sold on “Sold”

Keiko Kreklau, Staff Writer

February 28, 2017

Warning: Placing this book down mid-story is extremely difficult. “Sold” by Patricia McCormick tells the tale of Lakshmi, a thirteen-year-old, as she develops both as a young woman and as a testament to female strength and resilience. Written in a free-verse style from Lakshmi's own perspective, the nove...
