    1. Ahhhhhh!!! I have been searching for this book for over a year - I could remember the cover but not much else!! I will need to re-read it because it was one of my faves :)


    2. This was an okay book. Not great, but okay. The protagonist was okay, albeit frequently snappish, but at least she's still better than some other red-headed teen girl with a painter for a parent who hides things from them I can think of*cough* Clary Fray *cough* *cough* I also thought it was interesting how her anger was used as a weakness against her.I liked the other characters alright. The 'Fossils' were funny. Will was friendly and supportive. The only person I still don't understand is Roge [...]


    3. This was a fairly good book. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I was 10 years younger, as it is geared towards young adult or teen, but it was a good story. I didn't much like the ending but it was an ending that was different than the norm so that's a plus. Overall I would find myself easily recommending this book to people under 20 for sure. It's a quick read and has some good moments.


    4. This was a great book. It's not something I would normally pick up, but I really enjoyed the story. The characters are well developed and the plot has some interesting twists and turns. I've recommended it to many YA readers.


    5. This book is about a girl shoved off by both her parents to an aunt who she hardly knows. They shove her in an attic bedroom that is haunted. So far it is so lame I am stuck at this point. I would skip it if seeing it in the store!


    6. I fell in love with the story so much that I can recall checking it out of the library numerous times when I was younger. Such a great story mixed with first love and the paranormal.



    7. kinda boring in the begging but i liked it in the ende twist in the story after Rachel's kiss got me more curious to read aheadt bad
