The book Backlash by Sarah Darer Littman is one of my favorite to read over and over again. I love how the cover looks and it makes you want to read it. I really like the the summary on the back of the book. The book is realistic fiction because it could happen. When I read this book I have so much consern.
Frankie by Shivaun Plozza was one of my most anticipated read this year by an Australian author, it just sounded like my kind of book and it was. Frankie was a heartbreaking, heart-warming and absorbing contemporary that captures the reader from the first page. Frankie follows protagonist Frankie Vega as she goes on a journey of self-discovery, more heartbreak and finding her place. Frankie is a usual protagonist, she is mean, rude, hard-headed and feisty, but not in the way that makes you want to put the book down and stop reading, no it is quite the opposite, her attitude makes you want to keep on reading.
Especially the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. In rebuttal to such claims made toward the author, Anderson herself writes a short essay, “A Comment about Censorship” explaining her point of view on the topic. The short essay states “Reading and discussing books is one of the most effective ways to get teens to think through and learn about the challenges of adolescence”. Anderson explains this in detail more in the third paragraph, however the points in her essay used to persuade parents and teachers start off not in the first paragraph, but the way she words her title.
She has written unbelievable, eye-opening books that have altogether changed the literary world in regards to mysteries. Linda Barnes could perhaps be one of the best mystery authors
In Peg Kehret’s book Stolen Children the story starts when Amy forgets to walk and feed the neighbor’s dog and it has an accident. The neighbor asked Amy’s father if she had remembered come over.

Although the text, Women: Images and Realities a Multicultural Anthology, has done a wonderful job of showcasing the diversity of women’s experience; however, the most striking article we have read so far has been Lori Tharps “In Search of the Elusive Orgasm”. In the essay, Tharps traces her journey to finding an orgasms and begins by describing her love of Harlequin novels as a teenager. In which Tharps discusses how twisted these sex fueled novels are, in which she states “I basically gathered that true love and good sex were synonymous. The only other options were rape and chastity.” (158).
In the first two paragraphs of the excerpt Welty talks about Mrs. Calloway’s strict and somewhat unconventional library rules. She says she “was willing” to obey her rules which shows her commitment to keep reading, and then she goes on to directly state she “would do anything to read,” which just goes to proves her desire even further. In the fourth paragraph Welty talks about how she would read every book she seized. She writes “taste isn’t nearly so important… [she] wanted to read immediately.”
Valerie must face complications with her family, old friends, and the girl whose life she saved. Can Valerie survive her senior year of High School and let go of the past? I think that the “Hate List” was an outstanding book. I thought the book had a fantastic plot which made the book have many great themes to learn from and also caused the book to get very intense at some moments.
A good lesson for a lot of children to learn. I did notice that this book does stereotype the female and male sex roles. It is always interesting to learn how different cultures see the gender roles. This book also shows its readers that beauty is only skin deep, the real beauty comes
It generally gives no sense of what the story is about and is just plain confusing. However, I thought I may as well give it a go, because I have absolutely loved all of the upcoming Entangled Teen books. Despite my reservations, The Foxglove Killings nailed it. Kelly was great at creating a tense and frightening atmosphere while also maintaining minimal consistency errors. From the start of the novel, she is building the action.
