Job Shopping: Don't Settle for a Job that Sucks!

Job Shopping: Don't Settle for a Job that Sucks!
By: Susan K, Maciak.
This book has 44 pages.
Are you looking for a job?
Are you having problems finding one?
Then don't you worry no more!
No matter how old you are, this book helps you understand what companies are looking for!
It even shows you how to fill out a job application, and how to write a formal letter, ect.
If you think you know everything about yourself before reading this book then you are wrong.
It also tells you what to expect for a interview.
Just like I said before I recommend this book to anyone.
I give it 5 out of 5!
Also remember to read the book: What are people skills, anyway?
Which is also by Susan K. Maciak.
(You can read my review on that book too!)
If you would like to order this book then you can contact Susan K. Maciak at her website: www.cameocareer.com

Guardians of The Scepter.

Guardians of The Scepter.
By: Brant Waldeck.
This is the second book to the series: The Adventures of Bruten and Tommy.
This book has 212 pages.
This is a fantastic novel!
Yes, it is a fast read just like the first book in this series, which is The Secret of the Portals.
It too, has lots of space on the pages.
I recommend this book to kids ages 9-13.
I give this novel 5 out of 5!
  

Bruten Stone and Tommy Staunton are on their journey to protect the portals and the Golden Scepter.
Since they are just kids they are creative- but the question is for how long?
How strong will they be with strong armed men fighting against them, and with kidnappers trying to kidnap them?
Also Tommy finds out a secret about his family! 
Will they succeed to protect the portals and the Golden Scepter?
Well then read this novel and find out how brave the two boys are.
But remember to read the first book- The Secret of The Portals.
See you next time!!

What Are People Skills, Anyway?

What Are People Skills, Anyway?
By: Susan K. Maciak.
This novel has 202 pages.
I am delighted with this book!
It tells you how to brush up on your people skills.
It even gives you exercises, for example there will be questions and you have to answer yes or no. Then there will be the answers.
You get to interact with the text!
Something that I enjoyed is at the end of each of the chapters there was a quick summary and what to remember.
I recommend this book to anyone because anyone can practice on their people skills.
Also the book concentrates on you. It gives you quizzes, real life connections and much much more!
I give it 5 out of 5.

Among the Betrayed.

Among the Betrayed.
By: Margaret Peterson Haddix.
This is the 3rd book to the Shadow Children Series.
This book has 156 pages!
Unlike the first 2 books, this book is not told from Luke's point of view!
Only from a girl Nina Idi, and she too is a 3rd child!
I enjoyed this book it was interesting with all the detail.
I give it 5 out of 5!
I recommend this book to everyone!
But first you need to read the first 2 books to the series to make sense.


Summary:
So at the beginning Nina Idi (Real name Elodie) is captured by the population police.
In Among the Impostors Nina Idi is arrested for supposedly trying to fool the Population Police to arrest other third children.
So now as you can imagine she is treated horribly and they will execute her unless- she agrees to betray three other innocent little children!
The children are only 10, 9 and 6.
Will she betray them or will she be executed?
Maybe she will run away?
What would you do?
Read and find out!
But remember to read the first 2 books or otherwise this book will not make any sense!
See you next time!

This is the second book to the Shadow Children Sequence.
 Throughout this novel was written with detail and suspense.
So imagine never seeing people, only your family, and then you don't see your family at all only people that you don't know.
