Half a Chance
Review
Lucy has just moved with her family to New Hampshire. With her own passion for photography like her father she learns secrets about her family. An amazing story, I loved the ending.   Find in catalog

The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell
Review
TLOS 1 was much more than I had thought it would be. I absolutely love Chris Colfer because of his work on Glee; I read his other book, Struck By Lightning, and saw the movie version that he created. I had big expectations of TLOS, and they were certainly exceeded. Alex Bailey was a character that I related to, despite the 6 year age difference between us. Her and Conner's journey through the fairy-tale world was extraordinary and I loved every second of it. I'm currently reading the sequel, and I hope that HPL gets the 3rd book soon!   Find in catalog

Pieces Of Me
Review
Pieces Of Me is a fast paced, can't put it down, read it through dinner kind of book. In the novel Braidan wakes up every day remembering nothing about who she is, her life or her family and relies on sticky notes to tell her.

It's a very good exciting read which I highly recommend!

Landline
Review
Rowell's latest novel is aimed at adults but I think could still appeal to older teens. Georgie McCool (awesome name right?) is in her late 30s, married to love of her life, mother of 2, and was just given the opportunity to write her own television show with her best friend - something they've dreamed of since college. The only problem is that the deadline for the scripts falls two days after Christmas, which means she has to skip out on her family's trip to Omaha. This doesn't go over well with her husband, Neal. She ends up spending most nights at her mother's house because she doesn't want to stay in her empty house. She calls Neal from the old landline phone in her bedroom but the Neal she gets on the other line is 1998 Neal. The phone is a conduit to the past! She even speaks to his father who has been dead for 3 years. This truly freaks her out, but is also a comfort since present Neal isn't answering his cell. Will what she say to past Neal change things with present Neal? Read to find out! (There's also a cameo from a couple from one of Rowell's other books <3 )  Find in catalog
