    "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

    Would you try another book from Ellen DeGeneres and/or Ellen DeGeneres?

    Maybe I would try one (without buying one )


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Nothing .. it good the way it is , but not worth the money .. it's over priced


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ellen DeGeneres’s performances?

    Maybe if I got it for free


    Was Seriously...I'm Kidding worth the listening time?

    Well , yeah it was enjoyable because it made me laugh at some time but I finished it in two months although it's only 3 hours long !!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy it .. it's a waste of money .. I love Ellen so much and I watch her talk show everyday (that's why I bought the book ) but it won't satisfy you

    For high-school senior Celeste Watkins, every day is a brutal test of bravery. And Celeste is scared. Alienated because she's too smart, her speech too affected, her social skills too far outside the norm, she seems to have no choice but to retreat into isolation. But college could set her free, right? If she can make it through this grueling senior year, then maybe. If she can just find that one person to throw her a lifeline, then maybe, just maybe.

    Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her - her identity, her spirit, her will to live - pay. Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: Every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at 17 years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

    Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life.

    New to town, Bea is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. You know the type: very cheery, very friendly, very average. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet observer who hasn’t made a new friend since third grade. He’s not a big fan of people in general... but he’s willing to make an exception for her. Maybe.

    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....

    So this book wasn't what I expected at all with all these good reviews and all .. but it did end on a good note and that's why I didn't give it a 1 star rating, the story was deep but it lacked some major elements to make it exciting and fun to follow .. I didn't like Noah until the end because I saw him as a contradictory character who do what he doesn't want and say what he doesn't feel !!
    I didn't like this story at all and I look at it as "Perfect chemistry" rip off with a bad plot

    Senior year is over, and Lucy has the perfect way to celebrate: tonight, she's going to find Shadow, the mysterious graffiti artist whose work appears all over the city. He's out there somewhere - spraying color, spraying birds and blue sky on the night - and Lucy knows a guy who paints like Shadow is someone she could fall for. Really fall for. Instead, Lucy's stuck at a party with Ed, the guy she's managed to avoid since the most awkward date of her life. But when Ed tells her he knows where to find Shadow, they're suddenly on an all-night search around the city.

    the plot line of the story is good .. I was really excited to listen to this one because I heard so many good things about it .. but the moment I started listening the narrators shocked me with their poor performance that I got lost in the middle of the story without knowing what happened until I read the e-book and ditched the audio book all together, the story is nice just don't waste your time with the audio book
