These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

Amigas and School Scandals


Amigas and School Scandals, Diana Rodriguez Wallach

The second in this series did not dissapoint. Mariana is back from Puerto Rico & brings her cousin Lily back with her. Trying to re-adjust to her friends after being gone all summer, while trying to get her friends to warm up to Lily proves challenging.

A story line about a distant relative & the way Mariana's father & uncles react is stretching it. It seems unrealistic & just thrown in with no resolution.

The girls find their way through the drama that surrounds teenage girls, deal with their first major "boy" issues, and handle some messed up grown up secrets in a way that is usually realistic & fun. Again the lack of focus on sex, alcohol & drugs is a nice bonus. Great YA reading for teen girls.
