Review: Hate List

By Jenn K.

I would recommend the book Hate List to anybody who likes to be on the edge of their seat, or who likes to read about mysteries. Hate List is about a girl named Val who is being accused of being involved with her boyfriend, Nick when he decided he was going to shoot everybody who was on the ‘Hate List’. Val helped Nick come up with some of the names to put on the hate list, but she had no idea he was going to kill all those people. Val only thought the hate list was to relieve stress for the two of them. Hate list is a very good book that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. That is why I would recommend the book Hate List to everybody.

By Isaac M.

One day the world will all live in the makings of super heroes and super villains’. This world will have come about by some of the most advanced technology being leaked out onto the streets allowing anyone access to this massive knowledge and everyone knows knowledge is power. If someone contains the use of mass amounts of knowledge and the will power to go thru with anything people throw at him and bad intentions he becomes a super villain.

Review: Lunar: Silver Star Harmony

Lunar: Silver Star Harmony is a brand-new PSP remake of the classic Sega CD game Lunar: The Silver Star, one of the most famous JRPGs of all time. It expands upon the story of its predecessor, including the addition of a prologue chronicling the final battle of Dragonmaster Dyne. Random monster encounters have also been replaced with sprites that can be avoided (on occasion) if the party is low on health. All cutscenes have been remastered, along with the soundtrack.

Article: Worst Team Ever

By Gregori G.

When I was only in fourth grade, my dad put me on a soccer team. There was a problem with putting me on a soccer team. I didn’t know how to play. The first I game I played with the team, we lost. I had no idea what I was doing on the field. I didn’t even touch the ball one time during the entire game. That wasn’t the worst game I had. The worst game I ever had was when I had just got on the field and then all of a sudden I turn around and the ball hits me in the face. I didn’t do anything, not even cry. The worst part of me getting hit in the face with the ball is that my dad’s entire soccer team was there. That was really embarrassing. My dad says that I cried when the ball hit me, but the truth is I really didn’t cry.
