Transcript: October book:The Beginning of Everything By: Robyn Schneider.The genre of this book is a fictional teenage read. This book was very good I liked how it kept it to a minimum of characters through out the book. This book the main characters Ezra states that everyone has a tragedy. Ezra was a super star tennis player for his high school he was going to college for tennis, until a sudden injury of a car crash happened. Cassidy Thorpe was the new girl to the school but she didn't seem so new more like the whole debate team knew her as a legend that got away. Ezra and Cassidy had become great friends. Ezra asked Cassidy to Prom Cassidy said yes but Cassidy was soon to find her own tragedy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a heartbreaking yet hilarious story of a teenage boy tragedy. April book: Silence by Natasha Preston. Adult Fiction. Silence is about a teenage girl who hasn't talked since she was around 5 years old. Oakley, now a teenager and best friends with her next door neighbor Cole. Cole and Oakley have hit it off and our dating but Oakley still wont talk. Read to find out why. I really liked this book because a story of a young girl that goes through a very tragic and romantic story. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a good short book/ series. January book: The Future of Us by: Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler. The Future of Us is from the era of late 70's early 80's. Emma and Josh have been friends since they were little but they grew apart, until Emma's dad bought her a new desktop computer.

Emma doesn't like certain things and creates ripples in her future. Josh loves his future but takes it a little to far with the love of his life. I would recommend this book to anyone into young- adult fiction and would like a cute high school story. September book: 13 Reasons Why by: Jay Asher. The genre of 13 Reasons Why is a fiction book and is mainly a mystery and somewhat suspenseful. I very much enjoyed this book. It was a book that tells a story that happens in everyday life. This book took my breath away at times because of the courage one girl named Hannah Baker had. She tolerated all the jokes and backstabbing friends that are in the world. Hannah baker's story isn't like the rest she let those 13 people that hurt her know about what they did to her. The story is in Clay's point of view. Clay is one of the people that didn't do anything to Hannah but had a big impact on her life. Clay through out the story listens to Hannah's cassette tapes about her life and the book had some what of a weird ending but if definitely made sense now. I recommend this book to Destiny already and it was recommend to me by Payton but anyone who wants to read a good story about a girls fascinating high school life that was ended to early. March book: Uglies by Scott Westerfeld adult fiction. Uglies is a series of books about Tally Youngblood and how she forms into becoming a pretty. Tally is turning 16 which means she gets to turn pretty but then she meets Shay and David who show her a completely different world where there are no pretties. David shows Tally a whole new world called Smoke where she can be herself and not worry about being a pretty. Tally was soon to be tracked by the specials and the Smoke was taken over by specials. Specials want Tally to confess everything she knows about Smoke or they will never do the operation to become a pretty on her. I loved this book when Emily showed me it and I can't wait to finish the series. Feburary book: Forgive Me , Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. Adult fiction. Leonard Peacock is an ALMOST average highschool kid, he starts off the novel about art and how different it has become now some art is considered taking a picture with your iphone and posting it to social media and calling it "tumblr". Leonard doesn't really get into the kind of stuff. He is more of someone that watches old Hollywood movies with his next door neighbor who is old and smokes ALOT. Leonard notices different things like Her Silverman his social studies teacher why he never wears his sleeves rolled up their always down. Leonard only has one mission today though he wants get rid of Asher Beal his ex best friend. I really liked this book it got weird at points but was a great book overall. I would recommend this to anyone that likes a funny yet makes you want to keep reading type book. November book:Looking for Alaska, By John Green. Looking for Alaska I would categorize under young-adult fiction. This novel is about all the first in life. First real friend, first real love, and the first "Great Perhaps". "Pudge" or Miles is someone who has an obsession with famous last words. Miles is moving to a boarding school where he meets Alaska Young the gorgeous, smart, perfect girl. Alaska
Transcript: October: Thirteen Reasons Why by: Jay Asher, was a heartbreaking book to read. It is a mystery fiction book. This book was fantastic and interesting. It was an overwhelming book that I couldn't wait to finish. I loved it because, it is a different type of book and it was devastating to read. I would recommend this book to people who do not get sad over reading a sad book. I would read this book over and over again and i would never get tired of it. February: Where She Went By: Gayle Forman It is a fiction, romance novel. It is the sequel to If I Stay. This book unlike If I Stay, it is in Adam's perspective. I am not going to lie, i hated the first seven to eight chapters. It was really boring. But, then i got to the ninth or tenth chapter and it was really good. I would recommend this book to someone who has read If I Stay and or other romance novels. But, just because I said the beginning was boring, doesn't mean you shouldn't read it. If you ant to read it, read it, it has an amazing ending. April: The Diary of Anne Frank By: Anne Frank This a non-fiction autobiography about a young girl hiding during the Holocaust. Her family went into hiding when World War II began. They stayed in hiding for two years until someone sold them out to the Nazis. This book is full of Anne Frank's diary entries during her time in hiding. It includes how it felt to be in such a small space, the fights the families got into, and her own feelings about the people she lived with. I liked this book because, of how Anne Frank talked about life and how to live it. I would recommend this book to someone who wants to read about experiences during World War II and someone who likes non-fiction books. March: Looking for Alaska: By: John Green This book is a mystery and a fiction book. There are two parts to this book, before and after. I loved the before part. It is about Miles and what happened before a really big incident. The part of after, wasn't as exciting and interesting as before, but it was still good. The after part is about what happened after the really big incident. I liked this book because, it was different compared to the the other books I have read. I would recommend this book to someone who likes a mystery. Also, some who likes books written by John Green. Remember: Alaska is a person, not the place. December: Is I Stay By: Gayle Forman It is a fiction and romance book. I liked this book because, it made me look at life differently. It made me think abut how life could be taken in an instant, so you live it to the fullest. I would recommend this book to people who like romance novels and motivational books. What would you do if you had to choose? May: Counting by 7s By: Holly Goldberg Sloan This is a realistic fiction book. It is about a girl named Willow Chance. She is kind of a genius, and then something big happens that changes her life forever. It is about loss, survival, connection, and kindness. It is about Willow's journey after the big change happens. I kind of liked this book because, it was different then the book I usually read. I really liked the beginning and the ending, the middle not so much. I would recommend this book to people who was read something they would not usually read. September: Wings Of Fire: The Dark Secret by: Tui T. Sutherland, was a great book. It is a mystery and fantasy fiction book. I enjoyed this book very much and would read it again and again. I liked it because, it was action packed, interesting, and mysterious. But, the only way you will understand this book is if you read the the first, second, and third one. I would recommend this book series to a person who likes to read about a mystery and heroines. November: The Maze Runner By: James Dashner. It is a fiction, action, adventure, and mystery book. I love this book because, the books main character is mostly confused during the book, so you are confused. When the main character figures something out it feels like you also figured it out. I would recommend this book to someone who likes adventure and to someone who has not seen the movie. Plus, if you are going to read the book don't listen to people who say it it boring, it isn't! January Wings of Fire: Moon Rising: Tui T. Sutherland is one of my favorite book from this series. It is a mystery, fantasy fiction book. I loved this book because, it is a little different then the other ones in the series. This book has different main characters than the other books. It is hard to explain a book right in the middle of the series. All I can say is that if read the series, this book will be your favorite. I would recommend this book o people who love dragons and fantasy creatures. Also, to people who have a really big imagination. September EC: Wings of Fire: The Brightest Night by: Tui T. Sutherland, was a great book. It is a mystery and fantasy fiction book. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it. I liked it because, it was full of suspense. I would recommend
Transcript: Sweet Little Lies is the second book of the L.A. Candy trilogy and it was released in 2010. This particular book is about the scandalous side of Hollywood, the friendships between the girls, and the lies told in between. In the last book of the L.A. Candy trilogy, Sugar and Spice. The girls learn who their true friends are and love begins to play a larger role in the characters lives. By the end, Jane makes a great discovery that ends the series off well. Sugar & Spice This isn't really a novel but more of a helpful advice book that Lauren wrote to give out tips on things such as skin care and hair. You also get to know the author of the book through this experience because there are many of her personal preferences and critiques included. The Fame Game is the first book in Lauren's second trilogy and my personal favorite. In this novel, the star is no longer Jane, but her costar from L.A. Candy, Madison Parker. In this novel Madison gets her own reality TV show along with 3 other girls and they all learn how coming up in Hollywood works. There are many secrets and scandals in this novel as well which is what makes it by far the best (in my opinion) This is a book much like beauty by Lauren that gives tips on style. Things such as clothing, make-up, and appropriate clothing for different occassions are discussed in this book. Lauren Conrad was the start of MTV's The Hills. She launched her career as a fashion dsigner in Spring 2008 with the debut of the Lauren Conrad collection. Lauren has been featured on the covers of Cosmopolitan, Rolling Stone, Seventeen, and Entertainment Weekly. She is currently living in Los Angeles and has a new book that will be released this June, Beauty L.A. Candy is Lauren's first novel which was released in 2009, by HarperTeen. This is the first book of a trilogy and the story line follows the life of the main character, Jane Roberts, a young woman who moves to Los Angeles and is subsequently cast in a reality television series. The story follows the life of Jane and three other girls as they film their reality tv show. The Fame Game Sweet Little Lies If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all -Oscar Wilde In the second book of The Fame Game trilogy, the main character Madison has gotten into trouble with the law, tensions heat up between the other cast members, and love begins to play a larger role in their lives. I personally didn't enjoy this book as much as The Fame Game but I still think it was great. Foundation L.A. Candy Lauren Conrad This is Lauren's book that is actually set to release in June. So of course I haven't read it yet, but it's on my summer reading list (I'd advise you guys to read it you) Style Starstruck Infamous

I don't remember super specific interactions/ reactions with this book other than an art teacher talking about it to us during specials because she wanted us to admire the illustrations 5.This book helped me understand that in picture books sometimes the author and the illustrator are not the same person. 6. The part of this book that means the most to me is the drawings. I really enjoyed seeing the drawings as a kid. 7. The quality of the book that meant the most to me was how good of a job the illustrator did. 8. This book did not evoke any emotion in me other than the fact it was humorous. It didn't add any experience to my life. 9. This book impacted me now by teaching me about illustrations. It was used a lot to talk about the different drawings and illustrations in the book. 10.I will share this book with my students to teach them how it was taught to me.

Silently, swiftly she hurried through the room, the living room probably, that was shadowy and quiet, toward the candlelight in the bedroom, toward the gross figure with its back to her that was holding a small struggling figure on the bed with one hand, giggling softly as with the other he pulled a shiny plastic bag over a blond head. Nancy had an impression of startled blue eyes, of Michael’s blond hair matting on his forehead, of the way the plastic clung to his eyelids and nostrils as she cried, “Let go of him, Carl! …” She didn’t know she’d said “Carl” until she heard the name come from her lips.”
