    I have never before read a David Baldacci novel. I know he's incredibly popular (that all his books are on the bestseller lists) but that's not enough reason for me to read a novel. That said, hearing the premise for his first venture into Young Adult fiction was enough reason for me to buy this ...

    Personally, I didn't like this book. It was a staple of my earlier days in elementary school, and definitely cemented into the culture of my school. However, in recent years that has been a bit lost. The book its self is just okay, but to be honest it was never really, you know, it for me. I u...

Or that Ronald Reagan was very nearsighted, but it cleared up when he picked up a pair of his moms glasses and pu...
