I liked how the writing reflected the plot. so as the story got darker so did the school, the writing and the characters thoughts.

I loved this book and read it in one day!!! I could not put it down!
This is about a girl who, after five horrible break-ups, decides to keep boys out of her life. That is until Xander comes along. This book is sad, happy, and will keep you turning the page!
I would like a copy of this book!!!

It is a great read for anybody!
It is about a girl named Isabel and she is the Shifter. Meant to protect the royal family even if it endangers her life. This book is full of "twists and turns" that keep you turning the page. Great for fantasy lovers!!!

'Toads and Diamonds' is one of the most enjoyable books that I have read in a while. The plot is built on a rich culture and the heartwarming relationship between two sisters. Diribani and Tana's quest to understand the gifts they have been given and use them for good brings sharply into focus that blessings and curses are not always as they seem when you first receive them - your fate depends on how you use what you have been given.
4 Better than most

Josh and Megs's worlds have just been shaken apart. Aliens have come to Earth, are these their final days?
POD is an incredible look into the human mind under the most stressful of circumstances. When aliens come to Earth and destroy everything on the streets everyone is confined to their houses. Josh is stuck with his OCD dad and his dog Dutch in Prosser, Washington. Meanwhile, Megs is trapped in a parking garage in Los Angeles. With food and water running out, both have to fight to survive. This book was a disturbing, yet amazing look into the human mind. The only word to describe it is: reinvention. As in the reinvention of Sci-Fi.
