Weekly Mail Call

Wow what a great week to get books. I got six this week!

Cover Image I bought Tales of a Hollywood Gossip Queen for $1.99! Brand new! By Mary Kennedy
Jessie's the queen of buzz... and she's about to get stung! Landing the star role in Reckless Summer-filmed at her high school last year-definitely had its perks for Jessie Philips. She shared romantic scenes with the superstar, Shane Rockett, and he set her heart aflame. Then he doused it when she caught him kissing a co-star. Jessie thought a summer like that could never be topped-but she was so wrong.
Cover Image Make Lemonade was also $1.99! By: Virginia Euwer Wolff
LaVaughn needed a part-time job. What she got was a baby-sitting gig with Jolly, an unwed teen mother. With two kids hanging in the balance, they need to make the best out of life -- and they can only do it for themselves and each other.
Details The Last Summer (of me and you) was also $1.99!!!!
From the author of the multimillion-copy, #1 bestselling series The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants comes a heartbreaking first adult novel that will resonate as clearly with readers in their forties as it does with readers in their twenties.
Cover Image I got Sea Change from the author, Aimee Friedman. Thanks Aimee!
16-year-old Miranda Merchant is great at science...and not so great with boys. After major drama with her boyfriend and (now ex) best friend, she's happy to spend the summer on small, mysterious Selkie Island, helping her mother sort out her late grandmother's estate.
There, Miranda finds new friends and an island with a mysterious, mystical history, presenting her with facts her logical, scientific mind can't make sense of. She also meets Leo, who challenges everything she thought she knew about boys, friendship...and reality.
Is Leo hiding something? Or is he something that she never could have imagined?
I also got Giving Up the V and Purge from the authors.

Oooooooooooohh, I WAAAAANT Sea Change. When you're done with it, is there any chance you'll trade it for... uh... all I have is an R. L. Stine book, a Diane Hoh book, and Castle Tourmandyne by Monica Hughes. :P Lol, maybe temorarily in exchange for... um, I have Across the Pond by Storyheart. That was good.

I forgot the question mark, lol.

I tried reading Ann Brashares' adult book, but I couldn't get into it at all. Maybe I should give it another go.

I'm interested to know what you think of it!
