    Oakley Nelson suffers with the loss of her older brother Lucas. Love, Lucas by Chantele Sedgwick was a great brook. All though towards the end I feel it was rushed and it wasn't like the previous text. I wish it was like it before all calm in mellow but it felt like she had a deadline and needed to finish the book quickly. All though I would recommend this book because it's a great relaxer and doesn't have lots of turning points that will pop up in your face. The time is now on days, in a coastal town in California. The protagonist is Oakly herself, and the antagonist is her depression and grief from the death. One major conflict is when she moves from her previous home to California with her mother and her Aunt Jo. Another is when she meets Carson Nye. Her new best friend. Oakley pushes people away and the death hunts her. Thinking she is leaving in spring she doesn't want to make friendships or relationships at all, does she leave in spring? She reads daily letters from Lucas before he died which he had wrote for her well he was battling cancer in the hospital. A turning point happens when her father flies out to California and gives her and news but she knew it was coming. I prefer towards the end that turning point a lot better compared to the news because I feel him flying out was so cliche. One that struck me hard was when something very serious and she's involved happens to somebody does she run away from it or remember “You can't run away from your problems, Oakley” written in a previous letter from Lucas? Find out in Love, Lucas by Chantele Sedgwick.

    gablas's book review was featured in Rip Tide (Dark Life, Book 2).
    It's the future. Kat Falls’ second book, Rip Tide, takes place in a world where sea levels have risen and half of the world’s population have been driven out of their homes. So now, most people live underwater. Selling kelp and diving for sunken treasure, Ty’s family has it pretty good. Until one day, while making a trade with the captain of Drift, one of the largest townships in the ocean, Ty’s parents get kidnapped. With his close friend Gemma, a girl who ran away from her home on the surface, Ty tries to track down Shade, Gemma’s brother, and ask for his help. But Ty soon learns that this is not the only problem. Someone is anchoring townships, causing the hundreds of people inside to either suffocate or freeze to death. Searching the vast corners of the ocean, and encountering new allies and enemies, they soon find out that the REAL enemy is the one you never expect. I enjoyed both Dark Life and Rip Tide, both give a fun and adventurous look at the ocean, and also a sort of precautionary warning about what COULD happen if sea levels get too high. But read Dark Life first, because you'll be really confused about what's going on if you don’t This book is jam-packed full of twists and turns, and definitely a must-read.

    Youtuber Joey graceffa shares his life story with us all. Now this book has different times in place like, middle school, Vidcon, college, etc. This book is called In Real Life by Joey Graceffa. The protagonist is himself. And the antagonist is everyone else. A major conflict is his first date with a boy, a while after he had came out to his friends. Another is dealing with his mother growing up and her drinking a lot. One conflict he was defeating was the boys in the school who made fun of him for being gay and having a girlfriend, he told the boys off and then didn't have to be around the negativity. Over all this book was amazing and I had really loved it, I've learned lots more about Joey graceffa in the days I was reading!
