Lia and Cassie, two teen-aged girls, had a bond of many years started off as an innocent friendship, but spiraled into a destructive one filled with jealousy, competition, ignorance, and hurt . . . until that night when Cassie called Lia thirty-three times, and Lia didn’t answer, reluctant to let...
Wintermädchen (2010)

I was absolutely enthralled from the first to the last page. I could barely put it down. Her lyrical writing style is intense--so intense that for a minute I thought I was Lia.True to what I have heard, there are some pretty nasty punctual and grammatical errors in this book--but this book defini...

It was very hard to relate to Lia, which I suppose is a good thing, but I do like to have some connection with a character, and Lia and I were so different.I don't have an eating disorder and this helped me understand (for lack of a better word) more about how it feels to have one, but, it was ha...

Some of her actions I h...

Wow. WOW. Really enjoyed this book - felt a whole myriad of emotions, all throughout the story. Most memorable scene, without a doubt, was when Hayley's dad Andy walks out of the house in his dress uniform, ready to head to the school for Veteran's Day. Completely moving, and wonderfully powerful...
Forge (2011)
4.1 of 5 Votes: 1
The book Forge is the second in the Seeds of America trilogy and the author changes the point of view in this book. Chains, the first book, is told in first person by Isabel, a young slave girl. This book is told in first person by the young man Isabel saved from prison- Curzon. Curzon unexpected...
The Hair of Zoe Fleefenbacher Goes to School (2009)

This is the first book I know of that the author Laurie Halse Anderson has written for younger kids and she's done it wonderfully! I love this book and its illustrations (Ard Hoyt). The story is about a girl Zoe who has this red hair that seems to have a mind of its own. Zoe enters first grade an...
