    No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible....

    Story

    This book is not easy to read. The things Echo and Noa deall with are hard, but the way they actualy came into their own was harder. It was hard to see echo starting to remember that night. It was hard to see her relationship with Ashley, the owman who was a mother to her almost until she marryed her father. Noa did some great things. He was really good at heart. I loved him and Echo together. They were not the usual tipe. They really loved each other. This is more than being in love. Noa's treatmont of his brother was indearing. I tiink the sistam has to learn something from this book. The carichtors were believeable. I loved it! I recommend it for people with strong heart! I cryed a lot, and laughed quite a few times.

    I gave this book 4 starts, fora reason which I will explain, but I must say it is highly recommended. I couldn't put it down. This is the first book I read by this author, but reviews were glowing and I was not disappointed.
    On the more tecnical side... The reason I didn't give this book 5 stars was that it included way too much details. I knew the household's rutene. WHy did she have to repeate it every single day she discribed? And why did she discribe every single day for most of the story? ANd every activity everyone in the house did during the day... I understand family and friends will find it funny. But I didn't know why she had to tell that she is swiching on her computer after telling that she went to check her emails. Most people swich their computers before checking their emails.
    It took me time to get used to the narrater. But I think I did at the end. I listened to other narraters who could have done a better job. Though, when I got used to her, I found out she did a nice voiceover work.
    It is hard for me to write this since, over all, Kathy writes very very well. I consider the story a kind of must read. Not only as a foster parenting story, but also as an eye opener. You will know why when you read. SO do pick up this book please.

    This version of the play is wonderful and moving. However, at the begining, it took me time to get used to the pace of the acting. It is a bit too quick. But don't worry, you get used to it after a fiew minutes.

    Written in 1593, King Richard III is one of Shakespeare's earliest plays. This play differs from its predecessors, being amore structured piece, examining the development and motivations of a single character, Richard Duke of Gloucester, who will stop at nothing to gain control of the throne occupied by his brother Edward IV.

    Out of all the plays I listened to, this was by far the best. This version is just perfect. It brings the play to life in an unbelieveable way. Some seens stuck in my head. The acters and actresses were great. I would just like to know who was who. Is there a way?

    A girl. A coma. A life she can't remember. When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she's been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can't remember them. She can't remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can't remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the 'old her' makes her start to wish she'd never woken up.

    Story

    I gave this book 5 stars only because I read it in one sitting. However, when I come to think about it, there are a fiew flaws which I would like you to know before selecteng it. Emma can't remember her name at the begining. But she remembers that there is something called school which she would like to finish. She remembers what a boy friend is. Suddenly, out of no where, she gets the "correct" sence of right and wrong. It is nice for a book, but would never have worked in real life. Also, everything is extreme. Mayson always does the right thing, his brother is selfish, Emma's friends are bad... Mayson I can understand. But I wanted to know some of the others better. Her parents were very well presented. But they also had flaws. So when you select this book, I would like you to know that it is fine, but lackeslogic.

Carey desperately wants to believe in this new reality but is held back by loyalty to her mentally ill mother, who gave Carey her violin and taught her to play the music that helps her survive.

    I want to give this story 4 and a half stars. It was gripping and sad. I cryed a lot. But it was too slow and full of questions for me. What will happen to Carrey now? Am I supposed to guess or is there a continuation in the making? I love open endings, but not when they are too opened. And I must say I found the plot rather expected. I wanted to see more every day life. That is, the first days took so much of the book. But again, it was an interesting story.
    I found it logical that the girls had book in the wood. Mom wanted to keep them busy somehow while she did what she did.
    Enjoy this ride.

    In Liz Coley's alarming and fascinating psychological mystery, 16-year-old Angie Chapman must piece together the story of her kidnapping and abuse. Pretty Girl-13 is a disturbing - and ultimately empowering - pause-resister about accepting our whole selves, and the healing power of courage, hope, and love.

    Story

    Prity Girl 13 is a very very very good book. One of the best things about it is that you are left with unresolved questions. However, I feel compeled to warn you all that this is a very hard read. The book is sad. Not only Anjy's story. We don't see only Anjy's point of view. We see a little from those who are left behind- family and friends. I can give an outline of the events in the story. However, on some of them, you miss many ditales. I recommend this book to people with a strong heart who want to listen to a fabuless reading of a very good story by a very very smart author about a subject which they may not incounter on another place. I learned a lot from this book.

    The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.

    El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt.

    I've liked the book but it's the first one for more to come. It does not stand for itself, it would have been great reading it and continue reading the "next" chapter in the next book.
    Yes, I very much recommend you will wait till the next one will be published.

    Paige Sheridan had it all: looks, popularity, and an adoring boyfriend. But when a night of partying ended in an it-could-have-been-so-much-worse crash, everything changed. Now Paige’s friends treat her like an outsider, and even her boyfriend seems cold and distant. The only bright spot is her creative writing class, led by a charismatic new teacher. But when Paige’s old mistakes threaten to destroy even this, she must choose between living the privileged life of a princess or owning up to her mistakes.

    Page is not good and pure. But I see her as a surviver. Lacey had a hard time... Right. She needed a friend. Right. But what if Page also had a hard time? What if she also needed a friend? Her mother abused her (at least mentaly) and her boyfriend and other ex-best friend were manipulating her. What if she was lost and confused and her former life fell apart? I was worryed about her. I wanted her to go the right way. I understood her. I even admired her some times. I am glad she found some reall friends. But she has a long way to go... The ending was wonderfuly realistic. It was not a banal love story. Please, if you are a teen or student or care giver, listen to this book. The narrator is just ausumn.
