"Looks" by Madeleine George

Meghan, a morbidly-obese sophomore, spends her school days trying to disappear from the eyes and thoughts of the often cruel high school students and personnel. A master at stealing blank passes from the school secretary, she spends much of the day in the nurse's office or a neglected music room, all the better to avoid the vicious taunts made by the clique of football players who torment her. Meghan is quite successful at maintaining her "invisibility" until a new girl arrives at school. Aimee, a talented poet deep in the denial of an eating disorder, is as thin as Meghan is large. After Meghan sees Aimee being befriended by Cara, a girl who did Meghan a great wrong in the past, she is roused to warn Aimee, even if it means once again opening herself to others. When Aimee is indeed betrayed by Cara, the two plot join together to plot revenge.
George's writing is hypnotic - sparse, elegant, and revealing - drawing the reader into the story of this unlikely pair. The opening scene has one flying through the clouds to finally zero through the school's very walls to witness the characters within, but by the end of the book, one feels as though they have zeroed in on Meghan's and Aimee's very souls. One is left to wonder - is their revenge justified? Will the damage done by past betrayals be healed?
I would rate this book FOUR and a HALF out of five stars.

If I could rate this book, it would be 5 of 5 stars.

"Eclipse" by Stephenie Meyers

This is the third book in the Twilight saga, and it is my favorite so far. Bella and Edward are still together, but both vampires (Edward, Bella's lover) and were-wolves (Jacob, Bella's best friend) are fighting against an evil vampire, named Victoria. This is the first time they ever get along (the vampires and were-wolves), they are enemies. This book is very exciting, and I would rate it 5 out of 5 stars.

TTYL was such a good book. Angela, Maddie and Zoe are in high school, and the book is of them chatting online, talking about school and other things. It is such a different way of writing, but I think it is very cool! It is a very,very awesome book, and I would rate is 5 out of 5 stars.

"Starclimber" by Kenneth Oppel

Despite my day job (The Librarian) and the fact that I love to read, I usually can't sit still long enough to read for long sessions. I made an exception this weekend when I absolutely tore through "Starclimber", the third of the books in the "Airborn" series. I couldn't put it down!

Reminiscent of the creative vision of Jules Verne, Oppel has created an alternate Earth reality, in which the development of air travel centered around air ships (huge air-filled balloons) rather than airplanes. The culture, dress, and societal norms of the characters seem to be taking place in what would be the 1880s on Earth. The series revolves around the characters of Matt, an eager teen who signs up for any air-related adventure, and Kate, a determined young scientist who also happens to be Matt's romantic interest. In "Starclimber", Matt and Kate are involved in the incredible development of a vessel whose mission is to travel to space. As a slew of exciting and nerve-racking adventures unfold, Matt and Kate try to hide their romance from the other "astralnauts".
The characters are so appealing and expressively portrayed that I felt I was reading about the adventures of old friends. The technology invented on this world is so very different from our own, yet so creatively imagined, one can easily believe in every last bit of it. How can a vessel travel into space in a world that has not developed computers or even jet engines? You'll have to read to find out Oppel's clever solution! And have I mentioned adventures? There are thrills, chills, and suspense on nearly every page.
You can easily jump in to Matt and Kate's world with "Starclimber", or read the two titles previous to this one: "Airborn" and "Skybreaker." There's also a nifty website at:
I'd rate this book FIVE out of five stars - can't wait for the next one!

"Pants on Fire" by Meg Cabot

Pants on Fire is about a girl named Katie Ellison. For Katie telling the truth is hard and also tricky. Katie lies a lot especially to her boyfriend.

Katie is running for Quahog Princess in her hometowns annual Quahog festival and she doesn't like quahogs or the football team. She should also tell about the secret she has been keeping for so many years. The secret about what really happened the night, Tommy Sullivan is a freak, was spray painted on the schools new wall outside the gym. The writing remains on the wall in neon orange. Tommy drove out of town four years ago but has now returned. Katie is scared that he seeks revenge. Katie does whatever it takes-including more lying-to keep her existence. Katie thinks Tommy will ruin everything, but...she’s actually having a good time. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. I loved this book it was very good.

"Marni" by Marni Bates

Marni, is about a girl named Marni. Marni has a diesease where she pulls out her hair. She pulls out her eyebrows, eyelashs, her hair. She has a diesease called "trich". Pulling her hair makes her feel better. When she is stressed she pulls more. In the book Marni talks about how she coped with this diesease. She went through a lot through High School. She tried to hide it. She felt much better when she found somebody with the same diesease.

This is a very good book. I would have to rate it 4 stars out of 5 stars. It was a really good book.

"Emily" by Emily Smucker

My English teacher recommended this book to me. Emily is about a girl named Emily Smucker. Emily started getting sick many times for long periods of time. She just thought that she was getting another bout of "Emily flu."Emily found out something was seriously wrong when her sickness didn't go away. Emily was sick all the time. Emily had many plans her senior year. That all went up in smoke when she kept getting sick. Emily was diagnosed with the rare West Nile virus.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I love these books, Louder Than Words books. They are very good books to read. I want to also read Chelsey.

"Marley and Me" by John Grogan

Jenny and John Grogan are just starting their new life togather. They live in their perfect little house in Florida. Then they brought Marley home. Marley is their new wiggly yellow furball puppy. The Grogan's life was never the same after that. Marley grew quickley and is no longer a cute little puppy. Marley destroys everything no matter what it is. He runs through screen doors, chews drywall, eats jewelry and couches etc. Marley was still a good dog with a good heart. He was very loyal and joyfull. He was always living his life to the fullest. He was always their for John and Jenny.

This was a very happy and sad book. At times it was happy and others it wasn't. Some parts were hilarious like when John was trying to train Marley. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

"Twilight" by Stephenie Meyers

Twilight was a splendid book to read. When I was reading it, I could'nt stop, because I needed to find out what was going to happen. I read the book before I saw the movie, and I thought the book was much better.
If I could rate this book, it would be 4 of 5 stars.
