Watching the Roses by Adele Geras
This book is sad and great to read. Also it's lovely to read it but in some of the parts not at all. I liked it because it was like reading the book Sleeping Beauty. Also because at the end the girl was happy that her love had come to visit her after what had happened to her at the party.

This book is about two girls named Kata and Ana. They are best friends and are part of the same gang in their neighborhood. To escape from all the violence and gang wars they dance for fun. Until the day Ana gets shot and finally Kata chooses better life for her self since her friend died. This is one of my favorite books because it tells the gang life of two girls rather than boy's. It also taught me that if you love someone don't bring them in gang life because it will just affect them.

Because I'm Worth It: A Gossip Girl Novel by Cecily Vom Ziegesar
This book is about all of the gang back together still worrying about college and what fashion week to go to. In this one, C might be gay, B dates an older man and tries rehab, S falls in love with A, N goes to rehab, and J tries kissing girls. This book is awesome and kept me coming back for more drama.

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
It was a book that was very challenging to read, yet the plot and writing style was interesting and good. It is a famous piece of literature, and I liked it overall. Even though it was confusing and dense in some parts, I enjoyed the message, plot, and characters.

Princess Ben by Catherine Murdock
Princess Ben was great. Princess Benevolence was sassy and had a unique personality. The plot line was sort of cliched, but Murdock managed to put a really original twist on the fairytale aspects. Not the best book in the world, but reading it won't leave you dissapointed.

Sucks to be Me by Kimberly Pauly
The story sounded like the diary of any ordinary whiny teenage girl (except for the vampire parts). I admit it was funny enough to read all the way through, but the storyline was completely predictable. The book had great quirky momnts and main character was frefreshingly mellow, but somehow, it just didn't quite fit together in my eyes at least.

Take Me With You by Carolyn Marsden
Following World War II, two girls live in an orphanage for abandoned girls in Naples, Italy. They are best friends and they both long for a family. When one of the girls' father finds her, they wonder if they will be separated, or if both of their dreams will come true. I am ambivalent about this book. I would have liked a more in depth description of the story. I like that the story is set in Italy.

After the American troops pulled out, they did not fulfill their promise to return if more trouble occurred. The northern Vietnamese raided his village and took about half the population captive.

Primavera by Mary Jane Beaufrand
During the Italian Renaissance, two families, the Pazzi and Medici were fighting for power and wealth. The youngest child in the Pazzi family, Flora, was overlooked while her older sister got all of the pampering and attention. But when the fight fight esculates, it was Flora who must risk her life to save her family. While I think that this book haas a very interesting plot, it's not very well written. For example, sometimes the author would refer to someone as "guy" which I do not think was the kind of language used during the Italian Renaissance.
