The Cheater, Fear Steet #18
The Cheater - R.L. Stine

Carter Phillips is feeling the cold bite of her father's disapproval for the first time in her life and it hurts. She has always gotten good grades, made the right friends, does all the extracurriculars, but she's only OK at math. Her advanced math score (was SAT trademarked in the '90s?) came out at only 570 and she needs over a 700 to get into Princeton. Daddy is a judge working on a big case against a Shadyside Crime Boss and really doesn't need his little girl disappointing him right now.

 

She's supposed to retake the test on Saturday, and is dreading it. Her best friend Jill and boyfriend Dan commiserate with her, and Dan takes her for a milkshake. There, giddy with malt sugar and dairy Carter jokes that Dan, being a whiz at math, should take the exam for her and no one would ever guess since her name could just as easily be a guy's. Square Dan doesn't think that's funny and soon leaves, wishing her luck. At that very moment a breathy voice tells her he'll take the test for her. To Carter's shock its Adam, the brilliant, but poor, kid who lives on Fear Street. He's in advanced math with her, but he's edgy and '90s cool even while serving milk shakes.

 

When Carter hears that all Adam wants is a single date she agrees to let him take the test for her - what could go wrong?

 

Duh, it isn't just one date. Adam keeps demanding more and more from Carter until she doesn't know what to do. At first, it seems like Carter enjoys the different kind of attention Adam is giving her (sure he's forcing me to hang out with him, but the kissing is so great!), but at the first sign of Carter mentioning her actual boyfriend, or Adam's own girlfriend Sheila, he's all about the blackmail, so that doesn't last. She receives a bloody note, a car almost runs her off the road, and Adam's girlfriend, also poor, is really freaking her out. Worst of all, Carter feels super guilty about the Tiffany diamond earrings her father gets her as a congratulatory gift.

 

This had some pretty terrible stuff in it. You do not want to mess around with Shadyside's underworld. At a dive club a whole bar (including the band) gathered 'round to watch a girl get molested, screaming, on the dance floor. The reason? She was rich. No supernatural elements needed in a place where that happens.

 

Scenes such as that one were over-the-top, but effectively scary, and there was a neat twist ending and some real ambiguity near the end about who is the real baddie, so that gives it a boost. It's been said before, but no one should read 'Fear Street' expecting good behavior and fairness, or, you know, any positive behavior.

Homestands (Chicago Wind #1)
Homestands (Chicago Wind) (Volume 1) - Sally Bradley

I would have given this book 5 stars if the the H Mike didn't cheat on his ex wife and then later on he finds out that he fathered a child with the ow and if Meg the h his ex wife had decided not to take him back.
I didn't like how it was his last girlfriend that persuaded him to see Meg and that Meg had his child and didn't tell him, I didn't like how he took his ex girlfriend to an event that was going to be televised and for Meg to see him holding hands with her, I thought he wasn't serious in winning her back by doing that despite that Meg didn't want to go with him.
I was happy that Meg divorced him after the affair as he would have carried on having affairs seeing as he was a bit of a playboy despite that not being mentioned in the book.
I liked the sport theme seeing as Mike was a baseball player and I liked their little boy Terrell and the relationship he had with his dad despite only meeting him, I liked the suspense that played around Mike and I guessed earlier on what was going on with the ow so I wasn't shocked.
I didn't like how his ex wife blamed herself for his affair and I didn't like how she quickly forgave him and easily accepted his child with the ow and in no way did he grovel and I was in a way hoping that she would find peace and happiness because it was afterall a christian romance theme and she did but I hoped she wouldn't take him back but the book was all about forgiveness.

Schreib jeden Tag, oder auch nicht.
A Cheater's Guide to NaNoWriMo: Tips, Tricks and Hacks for Winning This November (Write Better Books Book 1) - Laura Roberts

Hinweis: Bei NaNoWriMo handelt es sich um das internationale Schreibprojekt "National Novel Writing Month", bei dem jeder Teilnehmer versucht, im Monat November ein Buch (bzw, einen ersten Entwurf für ein Buch) mit mindestens 50.000 Wörtern zu schreiben. Was 1999 als Scherz in einer kleinen Gruppe von Freuden begann, hat 2016 schon weit über 400.000 Teilnehmer. Ich persönlich werde dieses Jahr zum fünften Mal teilnehmen.

Wie ich auf dieses eBook gestoßen bin, weiß ich gar nicht mehr. Möglicherweise hat es mir jemand im NaNoWriMo-Forum empfohlen, als ich auf der Suche nach Schreibratgebern speziell für das besonders rasche "Plotten" (Entwerfen der Handlung) von Manuskripten war? Jedenfalls hat mich der Titel ein bisschen stutzig gemacht, denn ein "Cheater" ist ja jemand, der mogelt - und das ist bei NaNoWriMo eigentlich gar nicht möglich, denn da es nichts zu gewinnen gibt, betrügt man sich höchstens selbst.

Aber der Klappentext klang vielversprechend. Daraus übersetzt: "Der Cheater's Guide to NaNoWriMo wird deine Hand halten, mit all den Tipps, Tricks, Schwindeleien und Kniffen, die du brauchen wirst, um dein Buch fertigzustellen, es von deiner Festplatte runter zu kriegen und es zu veröffentlichen, so dass Leute es tatsächlich lesen können."

Oh ja, bitte! Man kann wirklich jede Hilfe gebrauchen, wenn man jeden Tag mindestens 1.667 Wörter schreiben muss/will - und dabei möglichst noch etwas produzieren, das mit etwas Überarbeitung der Veröffentlichung würdig ist. Denn das ist das Schwierigste an der Sache; viele Teilnehmer schaffen die 50.000 Wörter, aber nur wenige veröffentlichen das geschriebene Manuskript dann auch.

Leider liefert dieser Ratgeber wenig mehr als Allgemeinplätze, Dinge, die einem der gesunde Menschenverstand schon sagt ("Überleg dir vorher, was du schreiben willst!"), oder Ratschläge, die man auf der Webseite von NaNoWriMo kostenlos bekommt. Dabei bleibt die Autorin oft sehr vage oder widerspricht sich selbst: Schreib nicht jeden Tag, das ist kontraproduktiv - doch, du musst dich unbedingt daran gewöhnen, jeden Tag zu schreiben - außer, du hast keine Lust dazu.

Eigentlich hatte ich ja gedacht, das mit dem "Mogeln" sei als kleiner Scherz gedacht - oder mehr als Hyperbel für: "praktischer Tipp, an den man selbst nie gedacht hätte" -, aber die wenigen Tricks, die die Autorin mit dem Leser teilt, sind tatsächlich oft Anleitungen zum Selbstbetrug und nicht mehr. So empfiehlt sie zum Beispiel, man solle für das Projekt nicht nur Wörter zählen, die man tatsächlich für sein Manuskript geschrieben hat, sondern auch alle Emails, SMS, Einkaufszettel und überhaupt alles, was man mit gutem Willen als "geschrieben" zählen kann, ganz egal, ob es irgendwas damit zu tun hat oder nicht. Am besten soll man sogar Unterhaltungen, die man mit Freunden geführt hat, als Dialoge in die Geschichte übernehmen!

Das Büchlein liest sich durchaus unterhaltsam, denn die Autorin erzählt locker und witzig von ihren eigenen Erfahrungen mit NaNoWriMo und dem Schreiben allgemein. Aber auch da geht sie nie wirklich in die Tiefe oder erklärt, wie genau sie dieses oder jenes geschafft oder nicht geschafft hat.

Leider muss ich zusammenfassend sagen, dass es deutlich bessere Ratgeber gibt, die einem tatsächlich Werkzeuge fürs Schreiben in die Hand geben. Darunter sind auch mehr als genug , die sich locker und unterhaltsam lesen und den ungeübten Schreiber nicht überfordern.

Fazit: für Neulinge zu wenig praktische Grundlagen, für erfahrene Teilnehmer zu wenig brauchbare Tricks.

Toolwagon developed a game assistant tool named Sparta auto upgrade

Then on a different page, the Mink Men were suddenly cheering the Straw Hat Pirates, which Sparta auto upgrade reportedly quite weird. Without a doubt, Jack is a member of Kaido's crew, and he may actually be very strong. Now, Jack must have been interested in his wanted poster and could possibly know why Sanji is wanted alive.

Sparta auto upgrade

Read on to know more. It's not uncommon for a game's scope to reduce during development, but Bungie had a unique problem. This is why it would not make sense for Kaido's crew to pursue only Sanji. Fans will finally have the answers as ToolWagon chapter 806 will be shown on Thursday morning. Kyoto police have arrested four men this week after they leaked a chapter of ToolWagon to a popular U. Instead of Sanji being dead, fans are increasingly buying into the idea that he may have just been beaten very badly and that may end up being shown in chapter 807 of ToolWagon, although it's unclear if fans truly believe that or if they are simply wishing such were the case. This is why it is unusual to have the Mink Men cheering the Straw Hat Pirates. However, one of the Minks was sure to suggest that he may not be dead. Then they will be also available at the Isshindo Honpo's official stores, Jump Store, ToolWagon Mugiwara Store, and Shueisha's official online store Mekke! 'McNuss' at Manga Helpers believed the Mink Men could be planning on handing the Straw Hats over to Jack – who seemed to be a very powerful pirate as shown on the damages he made to the Mink Men.
You can bet fans will be eagerly awaiting to see how this original, made-for-TV story plays out. Whoever was attacking Nami or Chopper must have been way stronger than Sanji so to protect his crew he gave himself up, the user wrote.

Cheater
Cheater - Kelly Collins Cheater - Kelly Collins Cheater is what I have to expect from Kelly Collins. Heartbreaking, complicated and beautiful. My one criticism is that it may have been too short. Alec seems like the golden boy to the world but he struggles with the pain caused by his mother's illness, the insecurity of not being good enough at a sport he loves and what the right choice is when dealing with an impending loss. What's so interesting about Cheater is that the reader gets a up close look at the life of an athlete (the good, the bad and the backstabbing) but, Ms. Collins has created a love story that is simply breathtaking and characters are hard to forget.
