it's a haunting, scary look into telekinesis and bullying.
Bullying still happens now. Even between girls.
It's heartbreaking.
you can sort of understand why kids commit suicide. Because sometimes it's the only way out.

The third fantasy adventure in the Percy Jackson series is now available to download, complete and unabridged, on audio. It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore (half human, half lion), which in itself isn't ideal . . . but with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious . . . Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America.

this series hasn't kept me entertained as I would have liked it to, but enough for me to eventually pick up the next book in the series.
I probably would have enjoyed it more in school, if Twilight hadn't taken over my life.

Something has happened to Peach. Blood runs down her legs, and the scent of charred meat lingers on her flesh. It hurts to walk, but she staggers home to parents that don't seem to notice. Peach must patch herself up alone so she can go to college and see her boyfriend, Green. But sleeping is hard, working is hard, and eating is impossible when her stomach is swollen tight as a drum.

even though this book made me want to throw up most of the time while listening to it, it was beautifully written, stunning description, and haunting at the best of times.
It's a nice, short read and definately a book that everyone should read at least once.

It was actually better than I thought it would be.
The only reason it didn't get a 5 star, was the fact that in the back of my mind, it was like it had a happy filter over the top.

In the emotional aftermath of her baby's sudden death, Em starts running. Soon she runs from her husband, to the airport, down to the Florida Gulf, and out to the loneliest stretch of Vermillion Key, where her father has offered the use of a conch shack he has kept there for years. Em keeps up her running - barefoot on the beach, sneakers on the road - and sees virtually no one. This is doing her all kinds of good, until one day she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering.

I liked it...But some of the actors were anmoying. Like Peter Pan, for instance. He it nothing like I thought Peter Pan would sound like, and he was too loud, which put me off of the audiobook.
