The Outsiders.

"The Outsiders."
By: S. E. Hinton.
The novel has 180 pages.
I recommend this book to boys and girls ages 12+.
I love how this book is simple but yet fascinating.
I had to read this book for summer reading and at first I wasn't sure if I wanted to read.
I was very doubtful of the book. I didn't really want to read a book about boys in a bad part of town fighting.  But I had to read it. After I read it, I was shocked. I didn't expect it to be that good.
I loved how each character had such a strong and different personality.
"The Outsiders" teaches you a very big life lesson.
The book is also turned into a movie!
Make sure to check out the movie. But first read the book!
I give the novel a 5 out of 5!

5 Seconds Of Summer.

"5 Seconds Of Summer: She Looks So Perfect."
By: Mary Boone.
This book has 112 pages.
This book is not authorized, approved or endorsed by 5 Seconds Of Summer. It is not an official publication.
Have you heard of  5 Seconds of Summer? Also known as 5SOS. You must have. Every teenage girl knows them. Their singles- "She Looks So Perfect" and "Amnesia". Causing hysteria all over the world.
Ever since One Direction's Louis Tomlinson shared a link to a video of them singing and stating that he has been a fan for a while, people have loved them. 
They have toured with One Direction during their "Take Me Home" tour. Which was a success. Now once again 5SOS have agreed to join One Direction on their "Where We Are" tour. 
They have announced their North American tour for 2015! People are falling in love with 5SOS more and more! 
You should most defiantly pick up a copy of this book. Get to know Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, and Luke Hemming. It won't hurt. They don't bite. And don't think they are just another "boy band" because they are most defiantly not. They have their own unique style. Typical boys from Australia with their dreams finally coming true! And if I didn't convince you yet then this might!
All of the guys write their own music, all of them sing, and they play instruments. Their music is pop-rock! Check out the book, their music, and be apart of the 5SOS fan! You won't regret it!
