Schooled : )

Sorry I don't have a picture, but at least I can review the book. Schooled was a brilliantly written book written by a respected author. At least im my opinion. Ha ha. Written by Gordan Korman, this book shows what it means to be truly strong.

Capricorn is a boy who, after being in a commune for all his life, has to go to a real school after his grandmother, Rain, falls out of a tree and breaks her hip. It is at the school that Cap realizes that he has missed out on a lot. Like tv, lockers, P.A. systems, and even money. Life as a "hippie" was hard. But as Cap goes through 8th grade, he begins to understand it all. He then gets in trouble for doing something with the school's dance budget. But you'll have to read the book to find out how.

And so we go.....


Pretties : )

This is the next book in the Uglies series. I loved the way Westerfeld created twists at every page. I never wanted to put it down. It was that fascinating. I couldn't believe the way he made it seem like the end was near, then changed it at the last second. More props!!!

The book starts out in New Pretty Town after Tally Youngblood gave herself up to Special Circumstances. She is now a pretty- basically what you are called after MAJOR plastic surgery. She is still friends with Shay, a thrill- seeking pretty. Tally is also a Crim. A Crim is someone who does stuff like going up in hot- air balloons and jumping off of buildings- with bunjee jackets of ocurse. There is a special guy in Tally's little group of friends. His name is Zane. Zane knows there is something wrong with the system and wants to change it. i can't tell you hte ending, but I will tell you it is filled with action, betrayal, and something like comatose. But I'm not giving any more information about it. You have to read to find out.




Wow!! What a ride!! This book was so good, it was hard to put down. Filled with action, friendship, and love, Westerfeld has absolutely outdone himself! This book was easy to read, yet it kept you thinking about it for days on end. Props to the author. I read it in two days and loved every minute of it!! Sadly, it ended and it took my two weeks to get the second book. That was bad!

Fifteen-year-old Tally Youngblood has waited all her life to be a pretty. A gorgeous person due to an operation when you are sixteen. But one night she sneaks away to see her friend- who is already a pretty- and her life is never the same. She meets a girl named Shay. Shay is not a typical "ugly"- that is what they call people before the operation- Shay creates mischief. Tally later learns that Shay knows about a place called "the Smoke". It is a place no one knows about until now. And now Tally has reveal what she knows or not have the operation!!! What will she do?? A great novel that is filled with suspense, Uglies will keep you wanting for the second in the series. Pretties. The review will soon appear for that. But until then, good bye and remember, there is always a book out there to read!!!
