A Book I Can't Wait To Read

The Unwriten Rule by Elizabeth Scott

Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like you best friend's boyfriend.

Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more...

Can't wait

Has anyone else noticed?

That in books if the characters go school they are always in biology. Almost every book I read where they are in school they always seem to be in biology no matter what grade there in in.

I am in biology right now and I am a freshman. I was wondering at some schools do they teach biology Junior year? At my school you usually take it in 10 grade but I am advanced so I took it this year. So is biology just a easy class for someone to right in a book or they just think that every grade takes it?

Has anyone else noticed this or something where just about every book seems to have?

A Match Made In High School by Kristin Walker

When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life canat get any worse. Thatas until she marries her ahusbanda: jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fionaas long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very dorky, very big Johnny Mercer.

Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.

I loved this book it was realy cute. It had pranks,crushes, and a lot of drama that make up a really book.

Fiona was a great main character. She had flaws and a best friend who lied to her. Her parents are againest the marriage ed class which brings attention to her. Gabe her crush ended up being a jerk which helped Fiona grow as a charater. Jonny I think was a great guy he helped Fiona get out of trouble which a good guy should do.

The plot was preety good. There was a lot of pranks pulled and was full of drama. Fiona was againest being with Todd which made the book better seeing a hate. The ending was ok but the falling action was pretty good there was a few twist you wouldn't expect.

I thought the book was pretty good. I love Kristen's writing style and I can't wait to read more by her.

How To Say Goodbye In Robot by Natalie Standiford

New to town, Beatrice is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet loner who hasn't made a new friend since third grade. Something about him, though, gets to Bea, and soon they form an unexpected friendship. It's not romance, exactly - but it's definitely love. Still, Bea can't quite dispel Jonah's gloom and doom - and as she finds out his family history, she understands why. Can Bea help Jonah? Or is he destined to vanish?

I liked this book. It was kinda weird but it was good.
The characters were good but a little weird. Bea was a good main character but I think she was weird. Jonah was a good male character but was also a little weird.
The plot was good. I think the radio show was weird and some of the people there were weird like the dude who thinks he is from the future. I loved the part where you find out about Jonah having a brothere who he thought was lost. It was a good way to base the last half of the book and I really enjoyed it.
Overall it was a little weird but pretty good.
