If I Stay

The title of this book geared to the end of the book.  This book was very enjoyable because Mia, the character who was telling her story, was telling her past, but at the same time her present.  I didn't relate to any of hte characters.  At the end it was suspense because she's deciding if she wants to stay or die.

The Cupcake Queen

I would give Cupcake Queen a 4-star review.  I would recommend this book to teenage girls who have any kind of interest in cooking & making friendships last.  I had an immediate connection to the main character (Peggy) because I love cooking & my favorite thing to bake in the kitchen is of course "cupcakes"!  I even strive to be a bakery chef one day---This will put smiles on not only littles ones faces but faces of all ages!!

Crank is the first book in a series about a girl named Kristina, who takes a walk with the monster, and becomes hooked.  Her alter-ego, Bri, takes hold of her life, and, paired with the monster, destroys everything Kristina worked so hard to build up.  I would definitely recommend this title, and enjoyed reading this book because it really shows how drugs can really mess up a person's life, and how even one time can get you hooked.  How does Kristina fix all the broken pieces?  Find out when you read Crank.

Dream of Night

This book has great moral and the chracters were cool.  In the story a girl that is messed up, is sent to a farm in Kentucky, where also, an abused race horse is sent.  The book has the story from all of the casts point of view.  Night-only remembers tough handling  Shiloh-only lies and mistreatment  Jessalyn-the need to make kids and horses right

I enjoyed reading this book.  I thought Allie's tricks were funny.  My favorite trick was when she hid her "for sale" sign.

I would recommend this book to my friends.

The Poison Apples

The Poison Apples was a very good book, and I would totally recommend it.  The book drew me in to the point of tears and staying up into the late hours of the night.  It contained very likeable characters, hateable antagonists, romance, laughts, and everything in between.  I was very pleased with the ending, which portrayed a message we all need to remember: not everyone is what they appear to be.
