    Everyone remembers selling lemonade for a dime on the corner of the street as a kid - badgering your parents for ingredients, having the time of your life concocting the lemonade, and then setting up a homemade stand to cater to the community. For Pinkalicious, it's no different - except that she wants everything pink, pink, pink! But her first few attempts don't go so well. From adding weird (but pink!) ingredients to having some sugary mistakes, Pinkalicious' lemonade adventure is fun and 100% sweet!

    This book, in my honest opinion, only received what it deserved: a 2.50. An excellent comparison for this novel would be the Selection series written by Kiera Cass , which, for those of you that are well read, should already be setting off warning bells. The BAD: The book is bland, impractical, unrealistic, predictable (with one exception), and constantly pessimistic (unreasonably so). •One issue is how depricicatingly low grammar level is. I, as of almost a year ago during freshman year, finished the book in less than one night and was quick to pick up the next book from the school library, if only to satisfy myself with the story resolution (only to wait months longer for the third and hopefully final book to be published). •Another issue is the characters. Mare, the main protagonist is. . .tell me how to say IDIOTIC in a nice way. Sure she grew up in an impoverished family; sure she wasn't the brightest lightbulb ever to grace the earth; sure she's a master pickpocket who knows her way around the cesspool that's the stilts (her home town). Mare is fully ignorant to the life of the rich (excusable), but the real deal breaker is how the author suddenly tried to make teenage logic seem like it was ingenious when it was painfully obvious that it wouldn't—couldn't solve anything! I am not talking about yet-to-be-designed technology issues, I am talking about characters who apparently need to go back to grade school for lack of better common sense; it is horrific. Fact is, Mare's as useless as a slimy sack of potatoes until the last three chapters. I am not joking. •The OTHER characters! If you thought my short, impromptu description of Mare was bad, wait until you hear the full extension about the side characters—both the protagonists and antagonists. Despite most characters being older that Mare, they act just as moronic as her and sometimes even more so! Almost every silver (the weird upper class citizens and nobels with supernatural abilities and "shimmering" silver blood) is overly accentuated as being spoiled and arrogant, reds (people that are oppressed by the silvers [the lower class] and bleed like regular humans) run around like headless chickens without a lick of caution in their supposed secret activities that have been conducted for years, perhaps es even decades. Furthermore, it is stated that silvers live in a world fabricated from lies, yet almost none of them can recognize one giving them a dead-eyed stare right in the face. Cringe worthy. And the GOOD: Now, there were some entertaining aspects to the story, including that exeption to the predictability statement aforementioned and some interesting ideals presented by the book. •The whopping plot twist that sent almost every reader into a loop. It was completely unexpected and I was personally pleased that SOMETHING had finally managed to surprise me. Alternatively, the only reason it worked was because all the characters were too dumb to prevent the event from happening. •The SUPERPOWERS! Because, sometimes you just need a little kick-butt action in your favorite hobby. •The insanity. I like characters with problems, it entices me. •The important murder. I don't know why, but it was pretty epic compared to almost everything else. CONCLUSION: Read it if you want. It by far isn't the best story and it for sure isn't worth buying in hardcover or the audiobook. If you want to read something that's light and easy to plow through, go right ahead and don't let my comments stop you. If you want something epic, find a better book.

    Princess Amelia Thermopolis Renaldi's life is officially over. Her best friend Lilly has volunteered her as a school president candidate - against LANA WEINBERGER! How is Mia supposed to complete against that fresh, blond, lipsticked cheerleader in cahoots with the entire student body? And in the midst of it all, Mia has put her country of Genovia in danger of being suspended from the EU because she imported foreign snails to eat the French killer algae. How was she supposed to know it would cause such an uproar? Trying to juggle speech-making, Grandmere and Lilly's scary concentration on her presidency campaign, Lana's snide remarks, trouble with her one true love Michael, and in turn drama with Lilly, it might be all it takes for Princess Mia to get to the campaign podium in one piece. Fresh, fun, and in beat with an average teenager life - well, if all teenagers were princesses of French-speaking principalities - Princess in Training is one of my favorite books in this bestselling series!

    In this special glossy edition of Pinkalicious' adventures, Pinkalicious has lost her sweet tooth after stealing her brother Peter's cookie and trying to eat it! Now nothing tastes sweet anymore...yuck! Desperate for the return of her sweet tooth, Pinkalicious heeds Toothatina - her tooth fairy - for help, but she's constantly busy, sending Cupid, the Easter Bunny, and other magical creatures as substitutes. No matter what, though, Pinkalicious' sweet tooth doesn't make an appearance. What if it never comes back? A wonderful story about sweetness going deeper than skin.
