This is a fantastic account of a girl coming to learn to live on her own. It's great to have a heroine who isn't a social butterfly and has problems acclimating and the fan fiction is terrific. I adored every minute of the book and cheered at Cath's accomplishments.
Appropriatness: Cath is in college and she and her friends act like typical college students. There's drinking and sex but its all appropriate for Cath's age. I would recommend this book to readers 14+

This is a fantastic book that reads like a TV series (and was picked up by the CW before the book even came out) it's a fast trashy read that kept me entertained until the end. This book does seem like one of those series that will never end, so I'm interested to see what happens in the next installment (and how it's translated to the Screen).
Appropriateness: These kids are all criminals and the book has all the trashy trash talk that you would expect from a CW series. I would recommend it to readers 14+

I loved this book. It had everything I like in a historical novel, loads of clothes, titled men, scandal and romance. Though the book was long I found myself unable to put it down. I look forward to the next book in the series.
Appropriateness: There's no adult content in this book. I recommend it to readers 13+

My students adored this book, the illustrations fit perfectly with the song which is sung beautifully and they love to sing along. I recommend it for kids 4-8

This is an interesting book that I enjoyed. The downfall of Justine's friendships along with her real life (as opposed to the character the movie turned her into) are examined as she's forced to examine what's gone on in her life until now. I enjoyed the real mix of characters and the reality show plot and I was entertained until the end.
I recommend this book to readers 13+

I adored the first book because it was totally hysterical while maintaining an exciting plot. This book followed well in it's footsteps, giving the reader delightful absurdity along with an exciting plot full of twists and turns. Elvie's status as a teen mom means that she has someone beside herself to worry about and the babies needs have to come before everything else. I sped through this book and adored every twist and turn (and every super hot alien babydaddy).
Appropriateness: I'd recommend this book to readers 14+. There was no sex (or other adult content) in this book (although there's a bit in the previous book as the main character is a teen mom). Elvie learns that substance matters as much as looks and that her indiscretion means that she's forever stuck to the beautiful but dimwitted alien babydaddy (which is a nice thing to talk about).
