    shootingstarsliked a comment in Rain Reign.
    I read this book a while ago but fell in love with it! The reading level is about 3-5 and the count of pages is 34, 901. I would recommend this book! WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! This book is about a girl named Rose Howard. The character loves homonyms. A homonym is each of two or more words having the same spelling or pronunciation but different meanings and origins. For example, ¨Bye¨ can also be spelled like this ¨Buy, or ¨By¨. Each word means something different but the have the same pronunciation. The title and her name is a homonyms. She is does not have many good relationships, not her father, teacher or kids in her class. No one understands her or sees her in the way she does. She finds this dog named, Rain (homonym is Reign). One day a huge thunderstorm hits her town. Places begin to flood and Rain shows up missing! Rain has a phobia of thunder, lightning and storms. Can Rose find her dog? Is it too late? This book will break your heart and mend it back together. I assure you, you will be frantically be flipping through pages just to figure out what happens next. Read this book by Ann M. Martin and make sure to read more of her novels! -ShootingStars

    13iamgroot's book review was featured in Winter.
    This book is an absolutely amazing conclusion to the lunar chronicles series! It is a pretty thick book and took me a long time to read it, but it was totally worth it. This book focuses mainly on Winter, Levana's beautiful step daughter, and is based on the fairy tale Snow White. Winter is rumored to be the fairest girl in all the land, which upsets Levana very much. This is why, previously, Levana forced Winter to scar herself on her cheek, but much to Levana's dismay, this seemed to accentuate Winter's beauty even more. Winter also refuses to use glamour to hide her scars or to manipulate anyone, after she realized very young that glamour could be used for more evil than good. This causes Winter to have hallucinations and go crazy once in a while, because she refuses to use her gift. And of course, there has to be a love interest, in this case it is the royal guard Jacin. If that name sounds familiar, you are correct, Jacin was present in the previous book, Cress, but is thought to have betrayed the Rampion crew. He came back to Luna and is now appointed as Winter's personal guard. Meanwhile, on the Rampion, Cinder, Wolf, Cress, Iko, and Captain Thorne, are formulating a plan to overthrow Levana, and rescue Scarlet from Luna. But in order to do this they have to get onto Luna, and this is where Kai comes in. He needs to find a way to move the wedding and coronation to Luna, instead of Earth, this proves to be the simple part, because there are much more hardships ahead. The book follows the journeys of everyone as they get separated, reunited, and reacquainted over and over again. Winter and Scarlet escape from the castle, faking Winters death, where they meet Cress after she had gotten separated from Cinder, Thorne, Wolf, and Iko when they made a big scene escaping from the docks. Their plan has to be modified many times over, but in the end they all live happily ever after, but after way more sacrifices and battles then the original fairy tales ever had. This series is by far my favorite of all time, I loved the author's creativity in mixing so many different genres, the classic fairy tale, futuristic technology, sci-fi battles, fantasy adventure, and a hint of romance. Every middle schooler should have a chance to read this series, because you won't regret it.

    That is one funny, cool, and cute bird, I am so glad that we are trying so hard to keep them from going extinct. The babies are so cute! And the adults are altogether unique, I didn't know such a bird existed.

    I do want to try to help the world by eliminating plastic more.. but I don't think this is how I want to do it?.. It seems kind of- weird.. Would it taste just like water? How many chemicals make the "edible water"? I'm not sure I would try it.
