Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein

For information about our Pretty Amy giveaway and to see an interview with Lisa Burstein, GO HERE!
I finished reading Lisa Burstein’s Pretty Amy this afternoon. It was a lovely and painful read for me, and I know I should explain that more fully so as not to be misunderstood. Do not think painful means it was hard for me to get through. That is not the case at all. There are two reasons I say it was a lovely and painful read for me.
First, It was painful for me because …

Brooklyn, Burning by Steve Brezenoff

For me, there are some books that transcend the expected and change you to some degree. Steve Brezenoff’s Brooklyn, Burning is one of those books. Once I was finished, I had to sit and marinate in all that I had read, all that I had acquired while reading, and needed to think about. And, there was a lot I needed to think about.
The main character, Kid, has had a rough two summers. What we know about Kid is there was love, there was loss, there was fire, and there was …

Cinder and Ella by Melissa Lemon

Cinder and Ella by Melissa Lemon is a conundrum to me if I am completely honest with you. As I began the novel, there were several times that I became confused as to what exactly was happening within the story line. The basic storyline is that both Cinder and Ella end up at the kingdom castle, which turns out to be dangerous for them both, due to an evil prince. They go through trials and tribulation, fall in love, and good wins out over evil.
While the idea behind the story …

Back-to-School Rules by Laurie Friedman

Perfect for the child that is just about to enter school, and just in time for school to start with a release date of September 1, 2011, Back-to-School Rules by Laurie Friedman is an adorable read. While most back-to-school books focus on what to do, this children’s picture book takes the opposite approach and teaches children what not to do. The main character, Percy Isaac Gifford, is more than happy to share his wisdom with your children, which he imparts by giving ten simple things every child should know not …
