    The cover looks articulately intricate (which is my first impression of every book, and I know I shouldn't judge a book by it's cover), and I've read most of Angie Sage's work. I'm excited to read her newest series.

    Aristotle feels that he will never discover who he is, while Dante knows exactly what his place in the world is. Aristotle is introverted and unsure, and Dante is self-assumed and gregarious. These two 15-year-olds are as different as night and day, but one fateful afternoon at the public pool could test their lives in unseen ways. Together, they open each other to the possibilities that life can bring, while trying to find their way through high school. Okay, so, this is probably the best book that I've ever read (YA-wise, is that a valid word?). I found this at my local independent bookstore a while ago, and I just picked it up and I read the first three chapters at the store. The plot is truly gripping, and it wouldn't let me go.

    I'm literally so excited because I just finished this book (finally!) and I just found out that I'm going to Mr. Bosch's book signing for his new series! I grew up reading the Secret series, and I've been waiting for a new series from him since he's a very quirky author. This book was so much fun and I can't wait for more of his illustrious novels. -ifeelbookish

    The fourth book in the Lemonade Wars series follows the life of Evan, a fourth grader who wrestles with a secret crush, Valentines Day arts and crafts, and discovering his true self. His younger sister, Jessie is trying to make Evan's fourth grade year as miserable as possible. The precocious journalist believes everything should be publi; Evan however, believes in privacy. As these two siblings battle eaxh other, they first have to make it through fourth grade. Davies presents a true coming-of-age story of self-discovery, that is sure to entertain fans of the Lemonade Wars series. What I thought about it: I usually prefer first-person point pf views, but in this case I love the third person narrative. The author perfectly described every character's feelings exceedingly well. The hardships that the characters had to overcome were relatable to me, and the story was realistic. The book kind of reminds me of Andrew Clements' novels which I love. The short entries of poetry were very enlightening. I've noticed that the books have become more and more serious as the series progresses, and I hate to admit it, but that's just part of growing up. The added twist to the story was the mystery of the candy hearts and I think that it tied the story together very well. Overall I think that boys and girls alike would enjoy this story. ~ifeelbookish
