    I absolutly love Escape From Memory by Margaret Peterson Haddix! All of her books are soooo addicting and suspensful. I love everything she’s ever written!

    I just finshed the book Life as I knew it, a YA novel by Randi Hacker. The blurb says “Sixteen-year-old Angelina’s life forever changes when her father has a stoke and she and her mother try to cope with their varied emotions.” They live in a small Virginia (the state, not the city) community that has an eccentric cafe and many of the people in the community have more than one job – the master plumber is also an “adjunct professor of political science at Green Mountain Community College” (p. 33). The story is fast paced, funny and sad. I really liked it.

    I finished a series of fours books. The first book is called Blue is for Nightmares by Laurie Faria Stolarz. Its about a girl named Stacey who goes to a bording school. Stacey has premonitions that once predicted the death of a little girl. In this books she’s getting them again but this time they’re about Drea, her best friend. Each book has Stacey having a different premonition that she must deal with. The next three books in this series are White is for Magic, Silver is for Secrets and Red is for Rememberance.

    I’d like to say that Tamora Pierce is an awsome writer! All of her books are very good. Alana the Lioness is very good example. It’s set in a world, not earth. The book is about how Alana wants to become a knight but of course girls don’t become knights! So she must diguise herself as a boy. It’s so intriguing to see how she deals with things like strength, women hood, and boys that must not find out the truth. There are for books in the series.

    Tamora also wrote the Tricksters choice and the Tricksters Queen. (they’re together) It’s set in the same world as Alana the Lioness, but the time is set some years after Alana’s story. This is how Aly wants to become a spy, like her father, and her adventure to become a spy even though it is against her mothers and fathers better judgment.

    Hey me again! GOSH so many books! Ok one more series. This series is probably my favorite series ever except for the Twilight series but someone already wrote about that. Libba Bray another fantastic author Wrote two books so far and is comeing out with her third to complete the trilogy. The first is called A Great and Terrible Beauty, the second is called Rebel Angels and the third, that comes out December 26, 2007, the day after Christmas! Is called the Sweet Far Thing. So the setting is somewhere near London, durning the Victorian age with big pretty dresses and Huge hats. It’s about four friends who break the rules at Spence Academy for young ladies. Its very good since it’s nicley written and the’re so many things that happen since Gemma, the main Character, can enter a secret Realm, which the book describe as the passing before death filled with magic. Not to mention Gemma’s realationship with a certain gypsey boy… Well if this books sounds interesting i’d look it up for a way better description.
