In the exciting first novel of the "Blue Bloods", Schuyler Van Alen a New York city teenage girl, has never fit in at her private school Duchesne. She prefers baggy; vintage clothes compared to other people in her school that wears brands alike Prada and pearls worn by her classmates. When the death of a young teenage vampire, Schuyler's life unexpectedly changes. In the first book of the "Blue Bloods" series, I thought it was a great book. Some of the few things I really liked about the author's work would be how she describes the characters in the book. A other thing I really liked is how the book changes to different characters. My favorite characters are Schuyler Van Alen, Jack Force(Angel of Destruction), Oliver Hazard Perry (Schuyler's best friend) and Mimi Force( Angel of Death). I really like Schuyler's and Oliver's friendship because Schuyler and Oliver are best friends and he's always looking out for her and cares for her. One thing I didn't like is how they don't really describe Aggie's (the girl who was murdered) character, I mean she used to be friends with the most popular girl at school but the author didn't really describe her. I'm guessing because she died in the beginning of the book but the author could have at least said a few details about her. Out of all, I recommend to those people out there that are interested reading about fiction, romance, drama and the supernatural. I really enjoyed this book and I'm hoping on getting to the last book that came out a few months ago.
The Rising is just getting started.
Cassia is undercover in Central city, Ky is a rising pilot, and Xander is
sneakily working as a medic. As the final book in the Matched trilogy (Matched, Crossed, Reached), I
think that it was a good ending. However, it was a bit slow in the beginning
and in the middle. Previously, I had an idea of what the ending might be about,
but the book was completely different, which was a surprise. Overall, it was a relaxing book to read.
Pride Day Pride Day was May 11. It was a day where
people all around Westminster helped clean up trash around the various parks, creating a cleaner
environment. And we wanted to thank them in return by giving them a barbecue. It is
amazing, and frightening, to know how much trash people have picked up and it was nice to do something in return. But the best part about it was to know that everybody
left Westminster a better place than it was before.

I Thought the movie was funny although I would not recommend taking anyone under 12 or 13. Some parts are sexual, and there are brief drug and alcohol references. You can view the trailer on youtube. I Can't wait for it to come out so I can see it again.
If you went to the screening you got a free t-shirt that saysWater Wizz STAFF. I am now free advertising. If you missed last night's screening you will have to wait until it releases in theaters on July 5th.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower may seem like a cute story
from the outside, but it gets down to the serious issues that teenagers might
have going into high school. But like most stories, the characters get their
“happy endings”, but they all went through difficult times in order to get
there. So if you’re looking for a movie that is fun, yet serious, this might be
For the Youth Advisory Panel, we joined up and volunteered for an
organization called Precious Child. This organization is a place where people,
who are going through tough times such as having their houses burned down or
other disasters, are able to pick up clothes and toys and other necessities. There
are so many donations that are given to them everyday, and it changes people’s
lives for the better. So next time you have toys, clothes, or household
products (that are new or in good condition), think about donating them to
