Title: Romancing Hollywood Nobody
Author: Lisa Samson
Description: Scotty and Charley find romance in the Highlands when a couple of cute guys in kilts look their way. How will Seth and Jeremy react when they realize the Ladies who were interested in them have captured the hearts of a young bagpiper and a Scottish actor? Meanwhile, as Scotty and her dad look for answers to their questions about faith, they also look for Scotty's mom. The search takes them deep into mob territory, where someone will go to any length to keep the past a secret. Will Scotty lose everything that's become important to her?
I really like this book because of the things that happen. I like that Charley finds true love and so does Scotty. I think that this is a really great Christian series that all girls will love. I also recommend this to everybody!
Scotty's friend Seth has slept with his kind-of-girlfriend, but it doesn't really go into it. A few kisses.

In just a few weeks Tally will be there. But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be a pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world-and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine:find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.
When you turn sixteen, you whole life changes. You turn pretty. Not just pretty, drop dead beautiful. Tally Youngblood can't wait to turn sixteen. But soon she meets Shay, a girl who doesn't want to be turned pretty. When Shay runs away and Tally's birthday comes and she is about to become a pretty.

This book is a great science-fiction book, the author has just a wonderful imagination! In this book there is just a whole new world that I could have never thought up, and I don't know how the author could think this up!
Tally is awesome and so are the all the other characters! I really think that a lot of people would like this book.

Title: Clue of the Broken Locket
Author: Carolyn Keene
Description: Nancy Drew's sympathy for adopted twin babies leads her into a surprising mystery. Here is a reproduction of the original book, just as it was originally published in 1934.
This book is quite intriguing and it has some very interesting twists to the story. I like the hole thing about to mistreated kids while their mom searches for them, that part will make you soften up! :) I do recommend this book to all the fans of Nancy Drew!

Title: A Tail of Emily Windsnap
Author: Liz Kessler
Description: Everybody has a secret. Mine's a little different, though. I didn't even know about it until the first day of swim class in seventh grade. You see, I'd never been allowed to go in the water before. As it turns out, swimming comes naturally to me. Very naturally. In fact, so naturally that you might even say...well, it's true. Here's my secret: I figured out that I'm a mermaid.
When I picked up this book I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. Well, it turns out that I LOVED it. My friend, Catie, said it was really good, and I had bought it from Barnes and Noble, so I thought I would give it a try.
Well, like I said I loved it! And I still love it! Some people might think it is cheesy, because in this book everything is what you expect. But I still loved it.
The language is fair enough I think. I was excepting for this book to be for like, 7 and 8 year old's, but than I figured out that it is more for 10 and up when I saw Oh my Go* twice. Now that word is not a big problem with me, but it might be to other readers.
