Whales on Stilts is mostly about Lily. The reason I said that is that when Career day came, Lily found her dad worked for a mad scientist that is planning to take over the world. So, Lily called her friends Katie and Jasper to help her to her dad's boss Larry. They do all kinds of things to stop the whales but it ended up the whales escaped to the city. But, Jasper got on to Larry's ship and broke the controllers which it stops Larry. Then, Larry cried and jumped into the water and swam away.
In Eclipse, the third book of this series about vampires, Bella seems to be a stronger person, making her narration more dynamic. Her struggle between choosing Jacob or Edward is realistic, and I can't wait for the next one!

The Color Purple has a wonderful plot, interesting (in a good way) characters and wonderful lesson learned. My only complaint is the high degree of sexual references mentioned. I give it a rating of "R", 17 years of age or older.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a good book about these pants that fit these four best friends even though they are all different sizes. After you read the first one you will definitely want to read the next ones.
The Secret Hour is the first book in the Midnighters series. It is an amazing book! It's about these people who are the only ones that can wake up at 12:00 when the town freezes, it's called "blue time". It sounds geeky but it's really not. You should read the whole series, there are three.
