Scarlett Fever by Maureen Johnson

Scarlett Fever is a weak follow-up to a better Suite Scarlett. It seems to try to emulate the same ideas and themes that were interesting in the first book but most of them just fall flat. However, sparkling characters like Spencer, the chairman Murray, and Amy Ambrose color the book. Rating: 3 out of 5

The Wrestler (Movie)

The Wrestler was so good! A lot of it was pretty graphic and stuff but the plot was good and I loved the ending. It wasn't generic at all and the acting was very good. NOT GOOD TO SEE IF YOU'RE YOUNG! It would be pretty scary haha. Rating: 4 out of 5
