So I finished reading Sorta Like A Rockstar and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I also have a new review I posted yesterday, to share with you for: Prada & Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard.
I’m on chapter one for The Host but I’m liking it so far. I’m just a little confused about how I should feel towards Wanderer…
Should I hate her, or appreciate her pity towards humans?
AMBER APPLETON lives in a bus. Ever since her mom’s boyfriend kicked them out, Amber, her mom, and her totally loyal dog, Bobby Big Boy (aka Thrice B), have been camped out in the back of Hello Yellow (the school bus her mom drives). Still Amber, the self-proclaimed princess of hope and girl of unyielding optimism, refuses to sweat the bad stuff. But when a fatal tragedy threatens Amber’s optimism-and her way of life-can Amber continue to be the rock star of hope?
CAPRICORN (CAP) ANDERSON has never watched television. He’s never tasted pizza. Never even heard of a wedgie. Since he was little, his only experience has been living on a farm commune and being home schooled by his hippie grandmother, Rain.
But when Rain falls out of a tree while picking plums and has to stay in the hospital, Cap is forced to move in with a guidance counselor and her cranky teen daughter, and attend the local middle school. While Cap knows a lot about tie-dyeing and Zen Buddhism, no education could prepare him or the politics of public school.
Right from the beginning, Cap’s weirdness makes him a moving target at Claverage Middle School (dubbed C Average by the students.) He has long, ungroomed hair, wears hemp clothes, and practices tai chi out on the lawn. Once Zach Powers, big man on campus, spots Cap, he can’t wait to introduce him to the age-old tradition at C Average: the biggest nerd gets nominated to run for class president…and wins.
Will Cap turn out to be the greatest president in the history of C Average? Or the biggest punch line?
The only daughter of supermodel Katie Summers, unconventional- looking Lizzie Summers has come to expect fawning photographers and adoring fans to surround her gorgeous mother. But when Lizzie is approached by a fashion photographer who believes she’s “the new face of beauty,” Lizzie surprises herself and her family by becoming the newest Summers woman to capture the media’s spotlight.
The BSG are on an all-expenses-paid cruise to Hawaii, thanks to Dad’s assignment! It’s an amazing trip, complete with volcanoes, horse-back riding, and snorkeling, but it hasn’t all been smooth sailing.
The BSG have always been such a great team, and we need all of us together now to help Isabel and me take care of our new secret friend. Here’s a hint: He talks a lot and loves pineapple!
There could be some big waves if we’re found out…More later!
