Crank- Ellen Hopkins

Teens everywhere should read this novel. It is a great story about problems highschoolers may encounter at some point in their lives. This trory covers rape, drugs, love-lives, and family issues. This is a great story for teens and adults everywhere

Crosses by Shelly Stoehr

This book is amazing. It is about two girls named Nancy and Katie. They both are extremely punk and try to make it through their life.

This story is basically about a few teenage girls trying to find out who they really are in all the wrong ways.

Perfect By Natasha Friend

This is a really good book about a girl with an eating disorder. It tells you that not all people with eating disorders do it to be skinny. In this case, the girl has bulimia. With her, she shoves bad feelings down with food, then releases it by purging. Isabelle (the main character) has a younger sister who found her purging one day and told her mom. Her mom made her go to "group" therapy. Where she found out the most popular girl in school go to therapy for the same problem.

I really liked this book because it was so nicely written. It was written like she was talking to you. It is one of those books where you read the first page, and can not put it down.
Two thumbs up

The Mermaid Chair, Sue Monk Kidd

I decided to read this book because I had read The Secret Life of Bees and I really liked it. In this book, Jessie, the main character returns home to help her Mother who seamsto have gone crazy. The book also included a love triange, between Jessie, her husband Hugh and a local monk, Brother Thomas. Jessie feels an instent love for Brother Thomas but is that enough to end her twenty marrage with Hugh and destroy her family?
I really liked this book because there was the mystery of what really happened to Jessie's Father and why has her Mother done crazy by cutting off her fingers one by one? Add that with the new romance story with Jessie and Brother Thomas, its a good mix for everyone. When two men are fighting over a women, I usually perfere one over the other, but in this book I felt that both were perfect for her and I was going to feel bad for the one not picked. This is a good book and you should read it.

Helllllooooo Mr. Thomes class!

read anything good lately?
