Undone Book Review

Undone by Brooke Taylor.

Kori Kitzler is the "dark angel" of her high school: beautiful, mysterious, the subject of rumors. Serena Moore is just an average girl, until a run-in with Kori in the bathroom in eighth grade. When Kori tells her that they are more alike than she thinks, Serena is instantly intrigued, and their fateful friendship begins. When the girls are asked to complete a writing assignment listing the five things they would want to happen--their five ways to tempt fate--Serena doesn't take it seriously. But when something tragic happens to Kori, Serena is left with her loneliness and Kori's five things. Can Serena complete her best friend's tasks, or will she leave her list undone?Undone is a striking debut novel about friendship, family, and the secrets we keep from the people to whom we are closest.
(Summary from jacket flap).

Okay, I didn't do a summary of this book because the plot was too complex for me to sumarize. If I attempted to summarize Undone, I would sound like a total douche. Heh!

Everyone was telling me I should read Undone. When I looked at the book cover, I wasn't really all the "ecstatic" because I was thinking, "oh my, here we go again with another goth book." (no offense to any goths out there). Anyways, once I flipped through the first four chapters, I was definetly hooked. I am proud the say the book was freaking awesome-tastic! And that's a word I don't use very often. :)

Undone is a compelling debut novel that revolves around friends, family and hidden secrets kept from people closest to.

The Chosen One Book Review

The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams. When thirteen year old Kyra Leigh Carlson is destined to marry her sixty year old Uncle Hyrum, an Apostle, because it's a vision of God, she is terrified to wits end. Kyra, three mothers, one father, and twenty siblings all reside in the Compound where the Prophet controls their lives by God's so-called visions. The Carlson's live in a desert fifty miles from town which is surrounded by barbed wire because the Prophet claims that outside the fence is Satan. In the past, the Chosen Ones had the opportunity to visit town any time they wished too. As a new Prophet came into power, Prophet Marc Childs, the group has been exiled from the rest of "Satan's World". Abuse, violence and a demented religious world rule the lives of the Polgamists. Polygamy is a practice of multiple marriages (I looked it up on wikipedia...te he). Young women are reserved for the older men. Young adults who break the rules of the Prophet are bruttaly beaten in front of an audiance to display "obedience" and "respect". Books have been burned and banned because it has Satan's words.

For a long period of time, Kyra has been sneaking off to the Ironton Book Mobile on Wheels to check out books. When she falls in love with sixteen year old Joshua Johnson, her world is turned upside down. Will God accept her into Heaven even though she has broken numerous rules? Can she marry her Uncle Hyrum to save her family and herself? Will Kyra escape the Compound, even if that means leaving her family behind?

The Chosen One is an unforgettable, compelling book. It reveals the truth behind worlds we didn't even know existed. Williams grabs you into Kyra's world, as horrific and tradgic as it is. Kyra is deteremined young girl who fights against religion, faith, hatred and love. Her love and spirit is inspiring. This is a book I totally reccommend. Props to Williams for a wonderful, chilling book.

Before I Die by Jenny Downham

Jenny Downham debut novel Before i Die brings a new meaning to living life and not taking it for granted. Sixteen year old Tessa is suffering from leukemia and is enduring the painful procedures of checkups and multiple prescriptions of medication.
With only months to lives she feels that she hasn't done enough so she creates a list of things she wants to do before she dies and having sex is only one of them. With time ticking can Tessa finish her goals in life before she dies.

When i read this book , it gave a lot of insight on the world and how there is so muck to live rather than sitting on a couch watching TV. Tessa's hold onto life was inspiring, it would make anyone appreciate how much life is worth. Downham really captured the experiences of teens and what they go through everyday. Such a novel would be a great read and you won't want to put the book down.

Splendor by Anna Godbersen Book Cover!

This is the book cover for the last book of the Luxe series which is titled Splendor. It's unfortunate that Splendor will be the last book, but there must be an ending somewhere. I'd take my chances that the girl on this cover is Lina "Carolina" Broud (is that her last name?). Her dress is breathtakingly beautiful. I absolutely adore the color of the dress, and the voluminous layers of silky, lavender fabric. If I could, I would wear the dress myself. :) What do you think of the book cover? Splendor by Anna Godbersen is released in October 2009. Be on the look out.
