It was horrible and full of stereotypes. It was shallow and overall didn't show girls off as very meaningful and deep people.

Review
Samantha is a Chinese girl in the 1800s. After her father is killed in an arson, the landlord tries to attack her. Samantha kills him, but now she's in trouble. No one will believe her side of the story.
So, together with a slave girl named Annamae, Samantha runs off to the West together. But the West is a dangerous place for two girls in the 1800s, so they disguise themselves as two boys, Sam and Andy. They join a group of three cowboys, and have quite an adventure.
I love the book, loved all the characters. They were all hilarious, lovable, and the book kept me on the edge of my seat. I was VERY sorry when I finished this book, because it was GREAT.   Check it out!

Review
Cricket is punished by being sent to a camp with special needs kids as a counselor. Major events happen and Cricket realizes that being around kids with disabilities can be useful sometimes. I love how the author can construct such a novel and I love the part where Cricket can finally understand the difference between people. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

How to Fall
Author

Review
this book was very good though it kinda ended in middle of nowhere. and i thought it would be a double mystery that someone else really killed freya and not the person they found out. i loved Jess's character she is not afraid of anything and she is so acussing and starts up with everyone and she seems so smart   Check it out!
