Mr. Was by Pete Hautman Book Review

This will be the best book you will ever read.

Jacob Shaw, Sports Editor

May 18, 2020

With all the extra time the quarantine and social distancing have created, people don’t know what to do or how to pass the time. For me, reading is a great way to escape what’s going on around you and go into the world or time of the characters in a book. I bet a lot of people are trying to find go...

Never Have I Ever… Watched This New Netflix Show. Actually, I Have.

Neha Shaw, Editor-in-Chief

April 29, 2020

Never have I ever… actually watched a good show released on Netflix in more than one sitting. I’m serious. Mostly. “Never Have I Ever”, created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, is not an exception to this confession. If you need something to binge during quarantine, I’d say this show is pretty b...

The Everlife Series

Julia Westwood

April 1, 2020

This series was one of the best trilogies I have read. The plot is built around two realms, Troika and Myriad, who are at war with each other. Before an individual dies, he or she must choose which realm in which they wish to live out their “Everlife." The two realms are trying to recruit Tenley Lo...

Calm by 5SOS

Calm by 5SOS

Julia Westwood

April 1, 2020

WOW!  I generally am not a fan of groups I consider to be boy bands or even groups on the fringe of that genre.  But Calm is not boy band music. Released on March 27, this music reflects a more mature, grown-up 5SOS. Covering a wide selection of music, the album includes super everything from upbeat, e...

Conan Gray’s New Album – Kid Krow

Conan Gray's New Album - Kid Krow

Julia Westwood

April 1, 2020

This is Conan Gray's first full-length album.  It is the story about Conan’s life, which makes the album extremely personal, and provides a different sense of connection to the artist. His music has been on repeat ever since its debut on March 20th. The songs are a perfect balance of energetic, f...

The past couple weeks have been hectic, to say the least. I think it’s safe to say that no one has any idea what will happen next. Throughout this time of uncertainty, one thing has kept me sane: Stardew Valley. Stardew Valley is an open-ended, farm-style rpg. You control one character who moves ...

March 21, 2020

This Croc Will Die in 100 Days is a Twitter comic by Yuuki Kikuchi about a crocodile unknowingly living his last 100 days. While this title seems a bit morbid and you might wonder, “What could possibly be so enjoyable about this comic in the state the world is currently in?”,this Twitter comic is ...

Book Review: Final Six by Alexandra Monir

Julia Westwood

March 16, 2020

Over the break I read the “Final Six” by Alexandra Monir. This book was a sci-fi love story and I couldn’t get enough. The book is about how earth is going to war with humans, because humans destroyed earth and the international space station picked the top 24 teens in the world to inhibit Jupiter...

Book Review: The Twin by Natasha Preston

The Twin by Natasha Preston Book Cover.

Julia Westwood, Staff Writer - Swim, Student Life

March 16, 2020

Over the break I read a book called “The Twin” by one of my favorite authors Natasha Preston, who writes young adult thrillers. The book was recently released on March 3rd. I knew I needed to get my hands on it. This book was a physiological twist, about two twin girls who recently lost their mom and...

Parasite Movie Review

A poor family, the Kims, con their way into becoming the servants of a rich family, the Parks. But their easy life gets complicated when their deception is threatened with exposure. - IMDB

Neha Shaw, Editor-in-Chief

March 16, 2020

Parasite. The film that everyone has been talking about, especially after winning four (yes, four) Academy Awards and receiving critical acclaim across the globe, has been on my list for quite some time. When I finally got around to watching it, my only expectation was that it would be a movie that ma...

Joker: Worth the Watch?

Joaquin Phoenix Goes Full 'Joker'.

Neha Shaw, Editor-in-Chief

February 10, 2020

Some movies are so good that you watch them twice. Others are so thought-provoking that you have to watch them twice to fully grasp the complexities and nuances of the film. I did watch Joker (2019) twice, partly because I thoroughly enjoyed it and partly because I knew I would gain more insight into the...
