The reason I picked this book out to read was because I read Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott and thought it was really good. It turns out that this book did not live up to my expectation at all. It’s about a girl who is dating the perfect guy and she is really comfortable with him, but when she meets Evan, a guy from her childhood, she can’t help but love the way he makes her feel. Soon she finds herself still dating perfect Dave but also secretly making out with Evan after school. The reason I disliked this book so much was the fact that she doesn’t do anything about the fact that Dave keeps saying he loves her and she keeps sneaking off behind his back. It does turn out great in the end but I think that people should realize that in lots of cases it doesn’t and lots of people get hurt. I thought that the girl should have told Dave WAY before she did but then again, I didn’t write the book.

Audrey and her best friends Lea and C.C. just transfered from a small private school to Jemison High. All three are all on the weirder side of the popular kids so every one, including Audrey herself, is shocked when the hansome new kid Wickham Hill asks her out. Soon Audrey begins falling for Wickham HARD, but something about Wickham doesn’t seem right. He always knows what to say, avoids talking about his mom and dad and doesn’t drive. But Audrey ignores all this.
Then things start changing whether Audrey wants it or not. Clyde, a strange lurking guy in her world history class starts talking to her. Or at least trying to. And The Yellow Paper starts printing horribly mean things. But all this could change if Audrey just figures out how to do somethings and how not do to others.
This book was so-so and not really that interesting. It got better toward the end but was really slow in the beginning. I wouldn’t recommend it.

All in all, this was not the best book. One night, a seventh son of a seventh son disappears, supposedly dead. The same night, the baby’s father finds a baby girl lying in the snow. But what really happened? This book is kind of confusing and not very entertaining. In my opinion, the series gets proggressivly worse as it moves on, to the point where I stopped in the middle of the third book. It’s not the best, and I would not recommend this book.

Rules of the Road by Joan Bauer is a book about a girl who becomes her 70-year-old bosses driver. They drive from Chicago to Texas with many stops along the way. There is some humor and also some sadness. I think this book wasn’t the greatest. I don’t really recommend it, but if you do read it, you might have fun with the plot.
