Viola In Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani

I'm marooned.
Left to rot in boarding school . . .
Viola doesn't want to go to boarding school, but somehow she ends up at an all-girls school in South Bend, Indiana, far, far away from her home in Brooklyn, New York. Now Viola is stuck for a whole year in the sherbet-colored sweater capital of the world.
There's no way Viola's going to survive the year—especially since she has to replace her best friend Andrew with three new roommates who, disturbingly, actually seem to like it there. She resorts to viewing the world (and hiding) behind the lens of her video camera.
Boarding school, though, and her roommates and even the Midwest are nothing like she thought they would be, and soon Viola realizes she may be in for the most incredible year of her life.
But first she has to put the camera down and let the world in.
I thought this book was really cute. It was very relatable. The characters were funy and good.
I liked that Viola liked filming and movies which not really books focus on so the book was different but was still familar with the boarding school theme. The plot started out kinda boring and got a little batter as it went on and the ending was kinda boring and a little dry and not the best.
The charters were great and relatable. Viola, she has a passion which many people do. And her roomates were great and all someting relatable to them like one her dad was in wheel chair and shse has really cute older brothers. Another gives boy advice.Her botfriend sounded okay he did seem to give a lot of gifts and kisses. Overall the charaters were good.
3 out 5 stars

Braless In Wonderland by Debbie Reed Fischer

If you’re reading this and expecting a tale of some top model who wins the heart of a rock star, adopts a third world baby, launches her own clothing line, winds up on the cover of Us Weekly’s Who’s Hot issue, and gets her own reality show (or at least, her own E! True Hollywood Story), then I better warn you . . . That’s not exactly what happened to me
Allee Rosen is a lot of things: high school senior, overachiever, feminist, brainiac. The one thing she’s not is super model material. She leaves that to pretty people like her little sister (a.k.a. “The Fluff”). That’s why it’s a complete shock when Allee, not her sister, is the one spotted by modeling scouts at the mall and signed by a major modeling agency in Miami.
I thought this okay it wasn't the best but it was not my favorite book.
I enjoyed the characters. I thought Allee was cute and fun and someone I would want to be friends with. Actually all of the girls were good like a girl that you thought was all nice until you get to know her and she really is evil, and the girls that really are nice.
The plot was okay but it wasn't the best it could have been. I think the characters were thought out but the plot wasn't quite as good. 
3.5 out 5
