Posted by webmaster
15-year-old Ugo Ume from Lithonia, GA and 15-year-old Kristen Hlava from Brookfield, WI join us for today's Reader Q&A, where they each list their top three books of all time, share favorite quotes on the magic of music, and muse on what it would be like to pick the brain of legendary writer Elie Wiesel.

Ugo Ume from Lithonia, GA
What is the last book you read? Would you suggest it to a friend? Why or why not?

The last book I read was COURTIN' JAYD by L. Divine. I would recommend this book to a friend. It was very interesting and was like nothing I have ever read.

Tell us about your top three favorite books of all time.

My three favorite books of all time were: NIGHT by Elie Wiesel, THE PURPLE HIBISCUS by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and JUST LISTEN by Sarah Dessen.

If you had the opportunity to meet any author (dead or alive), who would you choose to meet, and what three questions would you ask him/her?

If I had a chance to meet any author it would be Elie Wiesel. I would ask him: Why did you choose to write Night? Are you happy with what you accomplished? If you were to one day meet the killers of your parents, what would you say to them?

What is the last book you read? Would you suggest it to a friend? Why or why not?

The last book I read was INTERTWINED by Gena Showalter. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends because I thought the whole concept of having other people''s souls stuck inside of you was pretty amazing.

Do you have a favorite quote from a book? If so, what is it?

"Ah, music," he said, wiping his eyes. "A magic far beyond all we do here!" It''s from one of the Harry Potter books.

Tell us about your top three favorite books of all time.

1. THE HUNGER GAMES
2. THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH
3. 13 REASONS WHY

What movies have you seen that were based on books? Did you like the book or film version better? Why?

The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter would be the major ones. For The Lord of the Rings, I found the movies more enjoyable because it was easier for me to keep the characters straight. With Harry Potter though, it's hard to say. I enjoyed both the books and the films immensely!
