Patron Book Reviews

This book explains all the hardships that come with high expectations. Those expectations can lead people down dark paths and all the different characters in this book have very different ways that they are affected. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading about tough topics that are very common in today's society.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog

Steven "Steel" Trapp has photographic memory, which turns out to be somewhat of a curse, when it leads him into a plan to rig the lottery. Trying to stop them with his new friend Kaileigh is not easy, especially as they are both participating in the national science fair at the same time, trying to stop the money from to going to terrorists. A great book.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
