We had to pack up all of our belongs but could only take one personal item. For me it was a locket that had a picture of me and my best friend, Sam, short for Samantha. Our world was dying and if we stayed it was certain that we would all die….
What happens next? What if you had to leave Earth? If you could only take one personal item what would it be? Tell me about the new world that will be your new home? What is the voyage like getting there?
We still have a lot of vacation time remaining to write our books. I just finished reading The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood. I haven’t reviewed the novel because it’s not YA. The book centers the lives of two women who as children killed a little girl. They later on meet as adults after being separated for 25 years and discover than their lives are switched. One girl was from an affluent family, the other poor but after serving time they find that each is living the other’s life.
What if you had a childhood friend who you shared a secret with? What’s the secret? And what happens when that secret is revealed?
I am reading The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian. It’s about a young girl’s whose town is being evacuated after a dam breaks and covers everything under water. It’s also a love story. I’ll let you know how it is after I finish.
I decided that after two hours of working on my own book I’ll treat myself by reading someone’s else’s book. When I return from my Va-K on July 6th then it’ll be after four hours of writing. What are your summer reads and writing goals? # teen books, # writers, # teen writers
I just finished reading Champion by Marie Lu. It’s the final book in the Prodigy series. I thought the series was over after Day discovered that he was dying at the end of the last book. He also broke it off with June, the lover of his life. In this book June is working with Arden, their country’s leader and it’s clear that Arden, the handsome young leader wants more with June. The only thing that stands in his way is Day.
This book begins with Day and June leading separate lives. Day’s text is red while June’s is black. The story is told seamlessly by their point of views. The big war between the colonies finally erupts leaving them having to fight and risk a lot in order to save the ones they love and their country.
There’s lots of action in their #teen book. It was a great book! I think you’ll enjoy it.
