    Summer Ames is trapped in the nightmare morning from hell. Her alarm clock didn't go off, she accidentally backed over the rosebush her grandfather gave her grandmother right before he accepted defeat against prostate cancer, she's wearing clothes she picked up off the floor, and when she opens the door to her classroom, the lights from the TV cameras nearly blind her.

    Story

    Katie Graykowski delivers a great read with big romance, larger-than-life characters and plenty of laughs.
    Sparks fly when heart-throb quarter back Clint Grayson is assigned to mentor the students of sassy teacher, Summer Ames. Summer is all about helping disadvantaged kids and Clint is all about helping himself to some good PR, but neither is quite what they seem on the surface. This book has plenty of yummy sexual tension and great banter between the characters.
    Fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips are going to love Katie Graykowski!

    By sixth grade, Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. They know where it's safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner.

    But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda's mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note.

    "Simply fantastic!"
    Overall

    I've been recommending this book to everyone I can, adult and children alike. I've listened to it twice already and enjoyed it tremendously. My six year old daughter loved it too (though I'm sure she didn't understand all of it). This book is my absolute favorite kind of book. A tautly written, tightly plotted story in which all the pieces only make sense after you've read the story.
    It was the best book I listened to (or read) last year!

    When the Stone family take an Easter holiday in Romania, Judy and Paul are very bored - until they find a tiny vampire under a stone near Count Dracula’s castle. Not only is the vampire very small, he is also a vegetarian with dreams of starring in horror films.Vlad persuades Judy and Paul to smuggle him back to London and the children decide to keep him a secret in case he gets put in a museum or the zoo. But a vampire left on his own all day can get terribly bored and find all kinds of mischief to pass the time...

    Although my children enjoyed this book, I found it very mediocre. Not horrible, just bland and a little lackluster. there wasn't a lot of tension in the story. But perhaps we're just spoiled, having listened to so many other truly wonderful children's book from audible.

    Life was tragic enough before this spring started. With a distinct lack of boobage and an arse so big that birds of prey could nest within its shadows, Jess Jordan is saddled with the Goddess Flora for a best friend, a Britney Spears look-alike so gorgeous that one grain of her divine dandruff could make the blind see again.

    Overall

    This story was just plain fun. Not to mention hysterically funny. This book was an absolutely delightful break from the current crop of grim (if fantastically written) paranormal YA's that are out now.
