Review: ‘Saint Anything’ by Sarah Dessen #2016HW

Imagine forever following in the wake of a person that is handsome, charming and the bright light of the family. He’s always up for a dare and people are drawn to him like moths to a flame. You get lost, always the shadow to his brilliance. Then,... Read More | Share it now!

Book Review: ‘Where She Went’ by Gayle Forman #NARC13

***IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE FIRST BOOK IN THE SERIES, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS AHEAD*** Rating: 4 The Low Down: Adam Wilde is a wreck. He should be happier than he’s been in his whole life – his band, Shooting Star, is huge; he’s in L.A.... Read More | Share it now!
