The book I recently read was called The Confessions Of A Backup Dancer. Its about what goes on and off behind the scenes when you are a dancer for a famous artist. Who hook ups with who and how really the artsist are behind scenes.This book i sreally intersting for the reason that you dont expect to hear things that artist really do and how they tried to cover it up by blaming others such as their backup dancers. I'll recomend this book to all those young girls that have a dream to become a backup dancer to read and think twice before taking that choice.

Changeling is a book by Cate Tiernan. This is the 8th book in the series Sweep. The book is about a girl named Morgan Rowlands who is a blood witch descended from one of Wicca's seven great clans but has normal parents because she was adopted. She faces many challenges and problems in the last books. She is new to Wicca although uninitiated and practicing magic for only three months, she is very powerful. Morgan learns that her true father, a witch who killed her birth mother and has also tried to kill her, is planning to use black magic against the Starlocket coven . Eoife McNabb representative of the witches' council approaches Morgan to request that she makes a relationship with her father to learn more of his plot and possibly prevent it. Morgan's adoptive parents are Catholic and disapprove of her involvement so she must hide her powers from them, but their influence brings her back to the church for the "comfort and structure" it provides. The book is good but you will want to go back to the seven previous books to fill in the blanks.

The book Fallen Angels is about a seventeen year old kid name Richie Perry who just graduated from high school. He decides to sign up for the army because he can't afford to go to college. When he gets shipped off to vietnam he meets four guys who are part of his squade and they become friends. They all have different stories of why they are there. They all fight together and protect each other so they could survive and go back to the normal world. At the end only Richie Perry and peewee get to go home. I think that this book is a very goal book because the way its written it makes you feel like you are in the book and it helps you understand what the! soilders in vietnam go through.
Many of my friends had read "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold and had recommended the book to me but I had never had the chance to get around the book or seemed interested in it.
Views changed when the film had come out to theaters and seeing the film I decided to give it a try. I can honestly say that the book was WAY better than the movie.
The book goes into so much more detail and description about the protagonsit Salmon, a young innocent girl who was lied to, kidnapped, raped and murdered by a person who seemed closer, than what her family or reader anticipated to be. Most of the novel takes the reader through the eyes of the protagonist, the readr feeling and living every moment Salmon goes through.
Trust me this book will not be a disappointment, if you loved the movie then you will surely LOVE the book=]

ELSEWHERE One of the many books that have captured a piece of my mind. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin. Just reading the book captures an image that will stay with you- the afterlife. What happens when we die? Where do our souls go? Are we able to come back- from the death? Apparently for Elizabeth who was killed in a hit and run Can’t accept the fact that she is dead. I mean, she doesn’t feel like she’s dead, she sees everything as if its Normal, except when she learns the truth. Heading to elsewhere where she will spend the rest of her afterlife Liz can’t seem to get used to it. How is she supposed to live when she ages backwards? Not being able to turn sixteen and get her license, drive, go to parties, do what sixteen year olds do. Her life is just going back to where it started. There’s no point of trying to enjoy elsewhere because soon she’ll be gone and she’ll become a baby again. In the book Liz gets pretty close to her grandma, a person she couldn’t get to know because she passed away to cancer before she even was born. Being in elsewhere connects them both to a better understanding on life- the afterlife. Liz goes through so much, like trying to go back to earth, falling in love, to becoming a child again. So what does the afterlife will bring? Who knows! There’s not really someone who comes back from the death to guide us. We’ll just have to see and find out.
