Author: Steve Kluger
Amount of Pages: 403
Difficulty: Easy-It went by smoothly (Best way to put it, i guess)
Reccomended for: 13 and up
Summary: Augie, T.C. and Ale are three teenagers living through the torture chamber of life AKA High School. T.C. is Augie's "brother", that is they decided to be brothers after T.C. started to hang out with him when they were six. T.C. is in love with Ale, but it drives him crazy that she doesn't return the feelings back. Ale is the daughter of an ambassador, but all she wants to do is be a musical star. Augie...well, all I can say is, he's gay and he doesn't know it. This book follows them through their Freshman year, from love all the way to Mary Poppins.
Wdebo's Review: I honestly am in love with these kinds of books. Chick Lit for girls by guys. Just like Boy2Girl, Steve Kluger does not have that same reservations that most girl authors do. It was very witty and very very VERY funny. His word choice is just AMAZING! I loved this book, it made me cheer for all the couples especially Augie and Andy. AHH, they're sooo cute together! Well, I'll shut up now or ill spill the whole story. I would reccomend this book to all my girl friends, I loved it, it was funny and every one (girl) should read it! 10/10

Summary: Kaye is a sixteen year old nomad. She travels with her mom's rock band, until her mom's boyfriend tries to "kill" her and they are taken back to her grandmother's house. There, she begins to look for her childhood friends/faries who have always helped her out when she was younger. When she saves a rival farie, she gets caught in an ancient faerie rival-this monkey in the middle thing, could led to death.
Wdebo's Review: This was a really good book I was really taken in by the voice of Kaye and the weirdness about how she's half asian and blonde, yeah, you don't hear about that often. lol. It was really good, but I honestly am not a big fan of cussing or mature themes, call me a goody two shoes or whatever, if there was so much cussing it would have been better. But, I'm not complaining. I really like this book and I would reccomend it to some of my friends. 7/10

Then the lives of a simple mirror, a peasent girl, a merchent and his daughter and the duke's are entangled in this spellbinding fairy tale of a novel.
Wdebo's Review: I honestly loved this book, I was drawn in from, "I thought that day was the end of my heartache. It was but the beginning." It was sweet and cute. I love retellings of fairy tales like those books like someone and the one hundred year sleep or cinderella and the glass hill or something like that. (If you know what those books are called please comment and write the series name), also Wicked and the Storyteller's Daughter. I would reccomended all those books and Mira, Mirror to everyone! The bad thing about this book was the gross-ness, there was only like three small parts but even a little mention of a deer getting caught in a bear trap or something makes me fell sad and grossed out, I also wish that it would've been a harder read, but I can't complain, lol. Well, from all that I would reccomended this to my friends. 8/10.
I said I would review it and I did! It's...
Hairspray is about a big girl, with big dreams and even bigger hair, Tracy! Tracy and her best friend Penny like to watch the show, The Nicest Kids in town. When they have an audition, Tracy skips school and goes then gets thrown into lots of fun, romance and lots of thinking.

Yeah! I finally finished it! I'm so happy!!!
"In life, Elizabeth Adora Holland was known not only for her loveliness but also for her moral character, so it was fair to assume that in the afterlife she would occupy a lofty seat with an especially good view..."
So begins the New York Time's bestselling book The Luxe.
Summary: Beautiful dresses and people are what occupied the bright streets of Manhatten in 1899. However under the beautiful exterior there lies many ugly things; jealousy, lust, scheming, and plain evil-ness. This book follows five teenagers through their lives, even though they are of diffrent social statuses their lives still intertwine around the lives of the two Holland sisters- Elizabeth and Dina. When life gets hard on them, who can they turn to, when society has turned their back on them, it takes on determined headstrong girl, one rule following beauty, one angry maid, one backstabing socialite and one very single bachlor to make this whole story come alive.
Wdebo's review: Ah, this is the real example of a "can't-put-down-book". Just by reading the prologue I was hooked. I was always interested in these socialites and stuff especially by their beautiful dresses! I would love it all except the corsets of course. I love my tummy the way it is, thank you very much. I would reccomend this book to any of my friends (girls of course, I am pretty sure none of the guys would be intersted lol) She uses such a good voice all of the characters spoke to me. I know everyone likes Elizabeth, but truely I am more of a Lina friend, don't know why but she just stuck to me lol! 10/10

Ashley Hannigan is the total opposite of her best friend, Natalia, and the whole female population of her school, because unlike them she couldn't care less about the prom. Natalia also happens to be the head of the prom committee. So, when the faculty advisor is busted for stealing the prom money, Ash suddenly finds herself roped into the thing she most detests. She has to find a way to turn no money into the time of anyone's life. Through this she learns a lot about her life, her family, and her slimy boyfriend.
When I first saw this book I thought it would be one of those really cliche cookie cutter stories. When I ACTUALLY READ IT, I was very thankful it was not (I had a summer of cookie cutter-ness), it was such a good book, hillarious and sassy like only Laurie Halse Anderson could write. 8/10.

Jenna Fox is no ordinary seventeen year old girl. Most girls don't get into a car accident, lose their memory in the future. (At least I'm pretty sure not). After waking up from a year long comma, her parents show her every home movie they have hoping she will get her memory back. She remembers things bit by bit, until she gets to unanswered questions, like what happened after the accident?
The Adoration of Jenna Fox is one of the most heartfelt, can't-put-down- books in the world. (At least in the young adult catagory). It draws you in from the first sentence and won't let go till the last period. I thourghly enjoyed it. There wasn't anything "bad" in it. (A good pro) and it didn't drag. (Another pro), can't think of any cons, so I would give this book a 9.99/10 (End could have been .01 better)
