One Came Home

One Came Home is the story of a strong willed teenager, Georgie, who would do anything for her family. Georgie’s sister Agatha is believed to be dead when a body surfaces with a dress made by Georgie and Agatha’s mother. However, this is not enough proof for Georgie  and she sets out on a journey where she battles cougars, counterfeiters, and herself. As Georgie finds more and more information that confirms Agatha’s death, she unknowingly opens up doors which some would kill for to remain closed. Activities which would complement that book would be to have students calculate the distance between to locations from which they would like to travel and creating lists of what they would need to pack if they were taking a journey similar to Georgie’s. The second activity would act a comprehension check for students to display what they understand about the setting. The accelerated reading level is 4.8.

Blog Tour w/Review - The Rules Of Rebellion

 

 

 

About The Rules of Rebellion:


1. Skinny dip (her idea)
2. Prank someone (his idea)
3. Stargaze (her idea)
4. Kiss someone (his idea)

 

Leo Zimmerman has had a crush on his curvy best friend Kylie Jenkins since forever, so When he discovers the girl with a flair for baking has a newfound plan to rebel against her overbearing parents, he’s determined to be the one to help her carry it out. Who better than a self-proclaimed rebel like himself to show her the ropes of letting loose?

 

Sure, taking her to her first high school party, helping her sneak out of the house, or watching a sunset together isn’t exactly a hardship, but much harder is masking his feelings the more time they spend together. And when he suggests adding “kiss a boy” to Kylie’s plan and she accepts…suddenly all his dreams seem to be coming true.

But Leo’s got a secret that could change everything between them, and it’s only a matter of time before it comes to the surface.

Her dimples popped into place, her smile so bright it about knocked me senseless. She bounced a bit on her tiptoes, and for one hopeful second I thought she’d maybe hug me. Unfortunately, she reined in her enthusiasm.


“That’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me,” she said. “I’ve got to run. My sister is probably pacing in front of my car by now. See you later.”


She scurried off, and I was disappointed the conversation had ended so quickly. I didn’t mind watching her walk away, though. I loved how the girl filled out a pair of jeans. She had more bounce in her step than most of the cheerleaders. Kylie was just plain…perky. She always seemed to be happy and smiling. I’d suspected Kylie was one of those rare people who was always fun to be around. Spending time with her these past few months had proven I wasn’t wrong.


She finally rounded the corner, slipping from my view. As I twisted back around, something crinkled beneath my foot. On the floor, directly where we’d been talking, was a pink slip of paper. It looked suspiciously similar to the one that had been sticking out of Kylie’s notebook earlier today.


I swiped it off the floor as I cast another glance down the hallway. It was too late to call after her. I’d have to give it back to her later. I reflexively glanced at the page, assuming it was a recipe, but wanting to be sure it wasn’t something important. Something she might need immediately.

 

Senior Checklist.

 

I glanced down the hallway again, confirming that she was out of sight and that she hadn’t realized she dropped the paper and was coming back. The hallway was clearing out, most of us anxious to get out of here at the end of the day.

 

With no sign of Kylie, I leaned against my locker and glanced at the sheet in my hand again. I was expecting to see items like Choose date and time for graduation party. Or Tour college campus.

 

I did not expect to see the items that were actually listed.

 

  • Senior Checklist
    Skinny dip (sort of)
    Sneak out (but don’t get caught)
    Prank someone (nothing destructive)
    Go to a party (no drinking)
    Kiss a boy (finally!)
    Watch a sunset (so romantic)

If I’d had any idea her list was going to be so private, I wouldn’t have read it. But once I’d seen it, I couldn’t exactly un-see it.


So I read it again.

 

 

 

 

The Rules of RebellionThe Rules of Rebellion by Amity Hope
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Leo has been in love with Kylie since they were younger. He is afraid to bring it up but knows he must do it soon. She has her eye on someone else and he could miss his chance.

Kylie is really put on the spot when her sister infers to her friend that they should go out. She is not sure what to do now. All she thinks about is Leo. Where to go from here?

This was an amazing story that I could not put down. I loved it all. The humor, the banter, the friendships.... it was just so good. I am new to this author, but you can bet I will be catching up.

Achtung: Infektionsgefahr! Überall auf der Welt ist ein unbekannter und tödlicher Virus ausgebrochen, der die Infizierten in torkelnde und sabbernde Zombies verwandelt. Die Notrufnummer ist dauerhaft besetzt, Handynetze lahmgelegt, Brücken und Zufahrtsstrassen militärisch abgeriegelt. Die menschliche Zivilisation steht vor einem Kollaps und noch gibt es keine Erklärung für den blitzartigen Ausbruch der vermeintlichen Seuche. Während des Ausbruchs der unheimlichen Epidemie, befindet sich Takashi in seiner Schule und bemerkt schnell, dass nicht alles mit rechten Dingen zugeht. Kurzerhand verbarrikadiert er sich mit seiner Jugendliebe Rei auf dem Dach der Schule, um sich vor der wandelnden Leichenflut zu schützen. Ehe die beiden sich versehen, gehören sie einer kleinen Gruppe Überlebender an: Eine im Schwertkampf ausgebildete Mitschülerin, eine mit weiblichen Reizen im Übermaß ausgestatte Schulärztin, die Tochter eines einflussreichen Politikers und ein Waffenliebender Otaku und Außenseiter komplettieren die bunt zusammengewürfelte Gruppe. Gemeinsam sagen sie den untoten Invasoren den Kampf an, in der Hoffnung eine zombiefreie Zone zu finden und der drohenden Apokalypse zu entfliehen. Dabei müssen sie jeden ihrer Schritte genau planen, denn es könnten ihre letzten sein - zumindest als Lebende!
 Wieder mal ein Manga und dann noch mit Zombies *-*
Rei, Hisashi und Takashi sitzen in der Schule fest, überall erstehen neue Zombies und haben Hunger. Die drei kämpfen um ihr Überleben, Telefonnetze brechen zusammen , es scheint die Welt geht unter. Hisa wurde gebissen und verwandelt sich und so müssen die beiden anderen ihn erlösen und nehmen ihren Mut zusammen und wollen aus der Schule fliehen, auf dem Weg treffen sie andere und die Gruppe suchen ein Weg aus der Hölle.
 
Eigentlich ist das Manga wie viele, Menschen werden gebissen und werden Zombies, die beissen wieder usw.
Aber dennoch war es gut geschrieben und ich freue mich auf die anderen Teile.
 
Pluspunkte:
- Es geht gleich spannend los
 
Minuspunkte:
- keine!
 
Cover:
- Es zeigt Rei

Murder at The Highschool Reunion (Book 5 Dekker Mystery)
Murder at The Highschool Reunion (Book 5... Murder at The Highschool Reunion (Book 5 Dekker Mystery) - Steve Demaree I enjoied this book even before I realized it was a real mystery and not just a comic. I would have never got to the mystery if the first part hadn't been so funny. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and anyone who enjoys a splice of life with humor. I love the way it ended too - I haven't seen an ending like that in a long time.
