    One fateful day, 16 people gather for the reading of the will of the very rich Samuel W. Westing. To their surprise, the will turns out to be a contest, challenging the heirs to find out who among them is Westing's murderer. Only two people hold all the clues. One is a Westing heir...and the other is the listener!

    Story
    (38)

    With the defeat of the evil Douglas behind him, Sam LaCroix is getting used to his new life. Okay, so he hadn’t exactly planned on being a powerful necromancer with a seat on the local magical council and a capricious werewolf sort-of-girlfriend, but things are going fine, right? Well...not really. He’s pretty tired of getting beat up by everyone and their mother, for one thing, and he can’t help but feel that his new house hates him. His best friend is a werebear, someone is threatening his sister, and while Sam realizes that he himself has a lot of power at his fingertips, he’s not exactly sure how to use it.

    Olivia says: "Narration awkward long pauses… weird inflections.."
    "Funny, smart, original"

    Story

    A YA novel that wakes up an increasingly of tired genre. Unique characters, funny dialog, highly original premise.

    Story
    (12780)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "Fun, light."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Especially great for people who like celeb biographies.


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    Loved it. If the tv/comedy thing doesn't work out, she'll have a steady career in audio book reading.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked this much better if so much of it hadn't been excepted elsewhere.
