Sebastian Darke: Prince of Fools has great development of the characters, both protagonists and antagonists. Each character starts his own adventure and learns a lesson through out the whole story. Not only the characters are taught to trust each other, but they also understand the importance of teamwork and friendship. But, don’t worry, you’ll definitely learn a great, valuable lesson!

Prince of Fools has very descriptive vocabulary. Each words gives a very precise description of what is going, and the reader can easily identify what is going on. However, it leaves rooms for imagination too! The words create a picture of the setting and overall events, yet it depends on the reader to work out the details.

Prince of Fools is a book for people who like to read thick, long books, yet anyone who wants can enjoy it.

3-HiFive   You will definitely how Prince of Fools has a creative story and great details in the plot. Nowadays, not many books out there include an actual princess being rescued! And even so the book is a bit confusing, the plot itself explains the story to the reader even if he doesn’t understand it.

Sebastian Darke: Prince of Fools has plot that isn’t similar to any other book I have read, it ‘s amazing!

2-HiFive   Even so this book is quite long, Prince of Fools is very easy to read. At first while reading the book, you will find the vocabulary hard, but later, you will love how easily readable it is. After you finish one chapter, you will just want to read more and more!

Review: Taylor Swift’s new album: 1989

By: Katelyn

Taylor Swift, the only female singer in music history to have two albums hit the 1 million first week sales figure, has a new album. The album, 1989, was named after her birth year, and is already a bestselling album. “Shake it Off,” the first song to be released from the album, was immediately popular to people of all ages. In 1989, Taylor sings in a whole new different way, changing from her original slow, teary, guitar style to quick, rock style. Some people still likes Taylor’s old style, but most approve of her new style.

1989 mostly has rock style songs, with only a few teary songs. The songs in her album includes:

    • Welcome to New York
    • Blank Space
    • Style
    • Out of the Woods
    • All You Had To Do Was Stay
    • Shake It Off
    • I Wish You Would
    • Bad Blood
    • Wildest Dreams
    • How You Get the Girl
    • This Love
    • I Know Places
    • Clean

This album is  Taylor Swift’s first ever pop album, which makes it very special. “Clean” is one of the slow songs in the album, and is a refreshing break from all the pop songs. Hope all of you will enjoy listening to Taylor’s new album!
