In The End, Clause and Sunny and Violet, all get shipwrecked on a coastal shelf, along with Count Olaf that is. They meet a girl named Friday, who takes them back to her village to meet Ishmael, who likes to be called Ish. She leaves Count Olaf behind because he is a wicked man. The Baudelaires are made get rid of all their possessions, including Clauses commonplace book, Violets hair ribbon, and Sunnys whisk. They are put into white robes (that is what the whole village is made to wear) and must drink coconut cordial, the only drink found on the island except salt water. The Baudelaires are fine until they are whisked into an evil plot to overthrow Ishmael and force him off the island. Later they find that there are secrets on the island their parents had kept from them. They find these secrets just as Count Olaf comes with his own deadly plot to make the island his own. He fails and all the inhabitants of the village are forced off the island in a boat. The Baudelaires live on the island a whole other year until they completed a boat to get off the island.

I liked this book a lot. It had adventure and many plots and subplots. One thing I liked was that there was a surprise little extra chapter at the back of the book. One thing I disliked was the fact it told none of the secrets Lemony always wrote about in his books. Overall the final book was not the best in his series, but it was good.

The End by Nora Olsen is about five kids that have all come together by one strange thing, a magical amulet from mystical gods who want them to save the world because of a nuclear war. They have to learn to protect themselves from nuclear radiation all while figuring out to travel back in time. The pressure of saving the human race is on them. Will they be able to handle the pressure and save the world? The book is an adventure because they have to travel to all different parts of the world to find everybody who has a magical amulet.

I REALLY enjoyed this book! It kept me turning the page and I couldnt set it down. The authors voice was always very distinctive. The narrator was always changing from every person and yet they all reflected the author a little bit. The main characters were Julia, Vikki, Marly, Ginger, and Skilly. The characters were hard to believe as actual people because they had magical powers. I wish the ending had been a bit different because it was a little strange and also suspenseful so I hope she comes out with a second book in the series. I definitely would recommend this book to others because I enjoyed it very much.

I rated the book a 3 because some of the characters were lesbians and it also talked about sex.
