The Grey Sisters by Jo Treggiari (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Sunday, Jan 19, 2020 at 4:05pm

D and Spider have always been close friends, and they are further united in their shared heartbreak: they both lost siblings in a horrific plane crash two years earlier. A chance sighting of a beloved cuddly toy in a photograph of the only survivor spurs D to finally seek closure. She and Spider and their friend, Min, set off on a road trip to the mountainside site of that terrible crash. Ariel has lived on the mountain all her life. She and her extended family are looked down upon by neighboring townsfolk and she has learned to live by her wits, trusting few people outside of her isolated, survivalist community. A terrifying attack sends her down the mountain for help; on her way, she comes upon the three girls -- a chance encounter that will have far-reaching consequences for them all.

I read the The Grey Sisters by Jo Treggiari. This book was so much fun to read! It started out very calm and almost innocent but when it got closer to the end, it starts to get full of adventure and suspense. I will say that some of the things that go on in the community beside the mountain can be a bit sensitive, such as rape, gun violence, as well as in one part a dog gets shot. For people who do not like these subjects I do not recommend this books. I do recommend this book to people who enjoy thrillers and the outdoors. This book is full of emotions and jaw dropping discoveries and is definitely a new favourite book of mine!

Friday, Jan 17, 2020 at 6:02pm

Coral has the Disease that is feared by all merpeople. It makes her feel emotions. Brooke is affected by depression and anxiety that makes life hard to bear. Merrick seems to have a good life with his father being one of the richest people on the planet. However his family is controlled by his dictator dad. They meet each other, and their life finally begins.

Coral by Sara Ella is a sad but very good book. I would rate it a 4 out of 5 stars and I would highly recommend it.

The Prom: A Novel Based on the Hit Broadway Musical by Saundra Mitchell (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Friday, Jan 03, 2020 at 3:17pm

Seventeen-year-old Emma Nolan wants only one thing before she graduates: to dance with her girlfriend at the senior prom. But in her small town of Edgewater, Indiana, that's like asking for the moon. Alyssa Greene is her high school's "it" girl: popular, head of the student council, and daughter of the PTA president. She also has a secret. She's been dating Emma for the last year and a half.When word gets out that Emma plans to bring a girl as her date, it stirs a community-wide uproar that spirals out of control. Now, the PTA, led by Alyssa's mother, is threatening to cancel the prom altogether. Enter Barry Glickman and Dee Dee Allen, two Broadway stars who decide to take up the cause and get a little publicity along the way. But when they arrive in Indiana to fight on Emma's behalf, their good intentions go quickly south.

I really enjoyed reading The Prom. The author did such an amazing job showing the heartbreak, love, hope and the pain the characters were experiencing. It was also very cool how it switched between the points of view of Emma and Alyssa, showing how everything that was going on was affecting them both. I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 11 or 12. All in all this was a great book and I would definitely read it again.
