Title: Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon
Sunday, December 28, 2008
Saturday, December 27, 2008
I LOVE this game. This is my favorite of all the Nancy Drew games I have played! Nancy Drew is going to Blackmoor to figure out what is wrong with Linda, who just got married to a man named Hugh.
It starts out with you leaving a bus and walking up to the door. And you are Nancy and you are her eyes, ears, hands, and mouth. Walk around this mansion figuring out who the culprit is.
I want to thank my mom for helping me, and my brother. They both helped me in some games. And just to let you know, it took me 2 times, because I had to restart it. And even though I got frustrated, you shouldn't, because you will be happy when you finish the game!
P.S. I got this for Christmas, I also got The Secret of Shadow Ranch, Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon, and Secret of the Old Clock. Next will either be, Secret of Shadow Ranch, or Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon. I have already wrote a review on Secret of the Old Clock.

Ok, first of all....THIS IS MY FAVORITE MOVIE!! I hardly changed anything, just little tiny things to fit the movie. If you have read the book, I really recommend this to you!
Robert Pattinson played the part of Edward perfectly. My mom and I think that Bella kind of over-acted it but it was still good.
My mom and I also wished that they would have showed more of the family and Alice. Ashley Greene played Alice really good! She was perfect!
This movie is Rated PG-13 for violence and a scene of sensuality.
I really have to tell, you this will definitely be on my wish list for my birthday next year!
My favorite part was Bella and Edward's first kiss, and when the Cullens are making a meal for Bella, and Edward says she just ate and Rosalie has a bowl of salad in her hand and smashes it into little pieces. I also that it was cool that they showed Stephenie Meyer in the movie. She was at a counter saying thank you to the waiter.
There is one scene wear Bella and Edward make-out. And then there is some violence. Alice tears a head off (doesn't really show it), vampires crashing through windows and then Bella gets a cut on her head by being thrown into a wall. And then it shows the bad vampire break Bella's leg. I had to look away in some parts but it was really cool!

Title: True Friends
Author: Robin Jones Gunn
Description: What is a true friend? Christy Miller knows two of them: Todd and Katie. To show how much she appreciates them, she writes to Todd, who's off surfing in Hawaii, and she agrees to join the ski club with Katie...even though she's scared of skiing! Fortunately, Christy and Katie can laugh as they bumble their way around the bunny slopes of Lake Tahoe. But Christy finds herself caught between new friends and her loyalty to Katie. Will Christy find a way to be a true friend when it counts the most? And will Todd ever write back?
This book is like the second book because it shows a really good moral to this story. When Christy and Katie join the ski club their hole friendship turns upside down. Christy finds new rich friends and whats to teach them about Jesus Christ. But then she finds out that they are hiding a liquor in their cabin.
Katie tries to speak up and tell on them. But nobody believes her. Will Christy stand up for Katie when it counts?
In this book there are rich mean girls. They bring vodka into the cabin. But to tell you, these books are only for about 9 or 10 years old and up. These books aren't go little girls.

Title: A View From Saturday
Author: E.L. Konigsburg
Stars: 3 1/2
Description: HOW HAD MRS. OLINSKI CHOSEN her sixth-grade Academic Bowl team? She had a number of answers. But were any of them true? How had she really chosen Noah and Nadia and Ethan and Julian? And why did they make such a good team?
It was a surprise to a lot of people when Mrs. Olinski's team won the sixth-grade Academic Bowl contest at Epiphany Middle School. It was an even bigger surprise when they beat the seventh grade and the eighth grade, too. And when they went on to even greater victories, everyone began to ask: How did it happen?
It happened at least partly because Noah had been the best man (quite by accident) at the wedding of Ethan's grandmother and Nadia's grandfather. It happened because Nadia discovered that she could not let a lot of baby turtles die. It happened when Ethan could not let Julian face disaster alone. And it happened because Julian valued something important in himself and saw in the other three something he also valued.
Mrs. Olinski, returning to teaching after having been injured in an automobile accident, found that her Academic Bowl team became her answer to finding confidence and success. What she did not know, at least at first, was that her team knew more than she did the answer to why they had been chosen.
This is a tale about a team, a class, a school, a series of contests and, set in the midst of this, four jewel-like short stories -- one for each of the team members -- that ask questions and demonstrate surprising answers.
This isn't one my my favorite book but it was ok. This book is about all of these students, Noah, Nadia, Ethan, and Julian. It has a story about each of these students. Mrs. Olinski has to pick her students for this competition. And this book shows how she comes to pick her students, and how this changed her life.
Who is Your Favorite Character and Why? I don't really have a favorite character, but I really like Julian. Why? Because he is smart, caring, and he isn't like the other characters in the book.
What is Your Favorite Part and Why? I like the end part when Mrs. Olinski says,"Did I choose you, or did you choose me?" And the students answer saying, "Yes!" Why? Because that is a part where you figure out that the students care just as much for Mrs. Olinski just as much as she cares for them.
Why are you like the Main Character or why aren't you? I don't really know who the main character is, but I am guessing it is Mrs. Olinski. I am not sure. Maybe in some ways. Why? Because at the beginning she is kind of strict she thinks it is not appropriate to applause and cheer. But at the end, her students change her into someone loving and caring. So I would say yes and no!
I liked this book but I wouldn't say this is one of my favorites. But this book is heart warming!
I don't remember any bad words.

It has Jane from Spider man as Hannah. It was very good but it was sad also. Because it was just so sad, how they died.
There are a couple of visual scenes. When they show what happens in the gas stoves and stuff. And people also get hanged. It was very sad but not to bad.
Author: Roald Dahlf (Author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
Description: Who put superglue in Dad's hat? Was it really a ghost that made Mom tear out the house? Matilda is a genius with idiot parents0and she's having a great time driving them crazy. But at school things are different. At school there's Miss Trunchbull, two hundred menacing pounds of kid-hating headmistress. Get rid of the Trunchbull and Matilda would be a hero. But that would take a superhuman genius, wouldn't it?
I love this book! Part of it is a fantasy because it has a little bit of magic in it, but I LOVE fantasy! And of course, Roald Dahl is a good writer!
Matilda is a genius. I mean it! A five-year-old girl is a genius. She talked perfectly when she was 2 years old, new how to read in about 5. And she taught herself all of this. Well, her parents are just plain mean to her. They call her dump, idiot, and they say SHUT UP! Yep, they are mean.
Well, when she is old enough to go to school, she just amazing her teacher Miss Honey. Miss Honey talks to the headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, but there is NO way that Matilda is going to movie up. The Trunchbull is just TO mean.
This is some of the things that The Trunchbull does to her students!
1. Pulls them by the hair
2. Pulls them by their ears
Matilda would be a hero if she got rid of The Trunchbull, well, it would just take a lot of magic to do that!
There is the wold a** in and then OH MY GAWD. But nothing really really bad.
