Here is a summary of what the book is about. Return to the world of Meg Cabot's bestselling and beloved Princess Diaries series in From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess-this time through the illustrated diary of a spunky new heroine: Princess Mia's long lost half- sister, Olivia!
Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison is a completely average twelve- year old: average height, average weight, average brown hair of average length, average brown skin and average hazel eyes.
The only things about her that aren't average are her name (too long and princess themed), her ability to draw animals (useful for her future career as a wildlife illustrator), and the fact that she is a half - orphan who has never met her father and is forced to live with her aunt and uncle (who treat her almost like their own kids, so she doesn't want to complain).
Then one completely average day, everything goes wrong: the most popular girl in school, Annabelle Jenkins, threatens to beat her up, the principal gives her a demerit, and she's knocked down at the bus stop... Until a limo containing Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia pulls up to invite her to New York to finally meet her father, who promptly invites her to come live with him, Mia Grandmere and her two fabulous poodles... Maybe Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison isn't so average after all!
I thought this book was very cute. I could see middle school kids reading this book. I thought it was written very well. I enjoyed the illustrations in the book.
I loved the fact that it was written in the diary format. I think it is good for a 12 year old girl to write her feelings down in a notebook.
The book is written from a 12 year old girls perspective and point of view. There is a sequel to this book called From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess Royal Wedding Disaster by Meg Cabot. Which I will read and review at another time.
Here is a summary of what the book is about. Switch -a- Wish examines the complexity of a stressed relationship through the eyes of partners who are required to live as each other. This unique perspective allows Chris and Amanda a chance to find their way back to the feelings of the love they once shared.
I found this book to be interesting. The author did a great job with the way she wrote it.
I also found this book to be funny. I thought it was a great comparison to the movie Freaky Friday. Where in the movie Freaky Friday the mother and daughter switch lives.
I also thought this book did a great job of pointing out the responsibilities of the roles a husband and wife have in a marriage. It dealt with real life situations. We know that switching bodies can't happen in reality but I found this book to be an eye opener. I would recommend this book. Looking forward to reading more books by this author.
Here is the summary of what the book is about.Two Books in One Volume! (Five Seven Five & Five Seven Six).
White Frost has only ever known the darkness. Everything outside of her closed society is The Unknown - a strange and dangerous place accessible to only a chosen few.
White's only glimpse of the world beyond comes from her beloved cousin in the form of mysterious collections of words that hint at astonishing wonders. When an accident upends her simple existence, she's given an unlikely chance to see the truth for herself.
What she finds is greater and more terrible than she could have imagined, and before long she is forced to make the most important choice of her life: does she accept her safe, limited world that she's known or take a desperate gamble in a world not meant for her with the Boy with Words?
What can I say about this book? I found this book to be intriguing and a little bit strange. I can't imagine going through life in darkness and being lied to all my life the way White Frost did.
This book has some twists and turns and some surprises in it. I thought the author did a great job writing this book. What an imagination she has? I would recommend this book.
This is my last post for this month. Where did the month of June go? I guess it went by faster because I was on vacation for a while. Anyway I have read 19% of the book Switch - a - Wish by M.B. Earnheardt. The kindle version of this book has 64 chapters in it but the chapters are short. I am really enjoying this book. I will be posting another reading progress update soon.
Here is a blurb of what the book is about. Only four months left, then Dave Martinez is a free man.
Dave is an eight- grader at Lakeville Boarding School, the school for boys with unexplored potential( aka losers). If he can control his impulse to steal, he can return home and attend regular public school. If he doesn't, he will be sent to Birmingham High, the worst high school on the planet, and his life will be doomed forever. For just a few more months , he needs to stay out of trouble and keep a low profile. And he's pretty good at that.
Then Dave gets a new roommate, Tom Grant. Tom is allergic to boring and doesn't know how to listen to rules. His wild plans involve all of his roommates, especially Dave. They're dragged along with Tom as he hunts animals ( and teachers in pajamas),goes sledding on cafeteria trays, and drives bulldozers through the night. Dave's chance's of keeping a low profile are going down the drain.
I enjoyed this book. I think 7 th and 8 th graders and high school kids would like to read this book because it is geared towards them.
I loved the ending of this book. I thought the message of this book is choose your friends carefully.
Sure Tom got Dave into trouble a lot but it turns out Tom was a good friend to have.
What can I say about Susan Hatler's book An Unexpected Love (Treasured Dreams Book 3) just this: I absolutely loved this book. I loved Holly's and Dave's story they are so romantic and cute together.
I love the beginning parts of relationships when everything is new and exciting.
I have a question for you: Would you confide in the guy you have only been seeing for 2 months with your fears of a life decision you have to make?
If you want to find out the answer then you really should pick up this book and read it. I would highly recommend it.
