Black Boy by Richard Wright

I think this book is very sad. It explains how a boy struggles through racism and family.
RATING: 4 out of 5

Lost (Executive Producers: JJ Abrams, Damon Lindelof, and Jeffrey Lieber)

Lost is arguably the best TV show ever. Plots include love triangles and drama as well as monsters and time travel. Focusing on the survivors of a plane crash on a mysterious island, these characters have to deal with surviving every day, trying to get rescued, and watching out for a monster terrorizing the island. Heart-wrenching and mind-boggling, each episode offers a unique plot while focusing on one or more characters of the show.
RATING: 5 out of 5

Julie and Julia by Julie Powell

I think this book was very fun and entertaining, but at times it got a little lengthy, but overall I thought it was very well-written and an easy read.
RATING: 4 out of 5

Lost: Season 5 (Executive Producers: Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cose)

This season is amazing. Caught up in the mythology of the Island to dealing with the realities of the real world, the characters in the show have big decisions to make all the time. From time travel to monsters, Lost has a unique plot, as well as drama and the perfect touch of romance.
RATING: 5 out of 5

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

This book had a great insight on Melinda's mind, a funny and artistic girl with a dark secret. Being inside her mind is fascinating, and as the story unfolds, you can see the way Melinda grows out of her self-imposed silence, and also as people change the way they feel about her.
RATING: 5 out of 5

The Secret Identity of Devon Delaney

This book is about a girl that lies to her friend about being popular. Throughout the story, she has to keep her secret about not actually having many friends. It's a really good book because it catches your attention and holds it the whole time.
RATING: 4 out of 5

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw, by Jeff Kinney

This book is a part of a series. It is the 3rd book. This is about a kid named Gregory, who keeps a diary about his everyday life. It is a comedy. I know a lot of people who are reading this series. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good laugh.
RATING: 4 out of 5

She's the Man (Movie)

BEST MOVIE EVER! It's really funny and never gets old. Amanda Bynes does a great job of playing a boy and a girl. Two thumbs up!
RATING: 5 out of 5

Oh My Gods by Julia Lynn Childs

I thought it was a really good book. Pheobe moves to Greece with her mother and goes to a high school where everyone is a god. I thought it was a really good book, especially because of its Greek mythology content.
RATING: 5 out of 5

Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan

This book deals with teenage relationships shortly following the aftermath of 9-11. Well-written and full of blunt and accurate imagery. I enjoyed how the author approached things realistically although overly it was a story of hope and being brought together in a community. However, the ending was hurried and not all ends were tied together.
RATING: 4 out of 5

Peeps by Scott Westerfeld

This take on vampires is much different from your normal bloodsucking creature. Infected by a parasite, a boy tries to stop the parasite from spreading any farther. This book is different, intriguing, and keeps you entertained.
RATING: 4 out of 5

The Proposal: A movie

What would you do if you were to be wisked out of the country? Simple, marry your American assistant ... problem is he hates you. Sandra Bullock and her new fiance go and meet the family and, through funny mishaps, learn a lot about each other. One of the best romantic comedies of the year.
RATING:5 out of 5
