    felicisowl's book review was featured in Gertie's Leap to Greatness.
    "She, Gertie Reece Foy, was going to be the greatest fifth grader in the whole school, world, and universe! And that was just Phase One." Most people are scared of heights or spiders or something considered even REMOTELY frightening - but then again, Gertie Reece Foy isn't normal.. in the best possible way, of course. It's safe to say that she was.. rather intimidated by a blindingly white "For Sale" sign situated in her mother's well-kept front yard. It's funny, really, that a sign (or a Mary Sue Spivey) could get in the way of Gertie's insanely complicated "plan" for world domination.. but the truth is, Gertie can't deny that she's a lot more.. human than people think. But what she doesn't realize is that others aren't as "perfect" either - EVERYONE has problems of their own, but some are better at hiding their fears.. especially one Rachel Collins. "Gertie's Leap of Greatness" made me cry. No, really - Gertie has a heart of gold, you just have to dig a little to find her "soft part." On the outside, she seems like a seven-year-old in a fifth-grader's body - you have to admit, she has a HUGE ego and kind of likes taking people down.. some people might find her intolerable, even by the end of the book... but that's kind of what makes her fun. A hilarious, "short and sweet" debut - read!

    You can't change people's minds on Donald Trump. They think what they think, and you think what you think :) It just works that way.

    Both of them have flaws. BIG FLAWS. No one can really deny that, but the question is, who will make the mistake that ends up destroying America.. and who will make a mistake over a tea party by accidentally insulting a ruler of a foreign country by pointing their pinkie at their water or something haha

    Here's the thing: The Presidential Debate was supposed to be an eloquent, poised, and.. um, POLITE argument over various different topics that America thinks are.. well, important. These two? No offense, but they just kind of argued back and forth the whole time. Their insults are pretty.. low, especially for politicians, and um, I don't know, most of the insults just made the other candidate more angry - it didn't help their own side at all. Sure, in some of the other Presidential Debates in history, some things were said that probably shouldn't have said, but these two candidates are probably the most immature candidates in history.

    I know! I missed it but I might catch it on CNN when I have time - at least the insults are kind of entertaining :)

    I wish kids and adults with SMA or other medical conditions all the happiness in the world - someday, I hope that they can be in the news for having such a big heart and becoming scientists to help kids with the same conditions that they had :)
