Four Fabulous Summer Reads

Whether you’re heading out on the road for a vacation or just lazing around in your own backyard, we’ve got some pretty sweet summer reading suggestions for you … translation: you’ll keep busy and expand your vocabulary all summer long!


Title: Girl To The Core
Author: Stacey Goldblatt


Girl To The Core


Story: Fifteen-year old Molly O’Keefe feels like she’s totally lost control of her own life. For example, her nine-year-old sister signs her up for a marathon, her BFF buys her a spandex neon costume to wear for Halloween and, worst of all, her boyfriend cheats on her. This book is about Molly’s burning desire to find out who she really is – by herself.


Title: Access Denied (And Other Eighth Grade Error Messages)
Author: Denise Vega


Access Denied


Story: This book is really fun to read and pretty realistic. The computer lingo isn’t dated or awkward – it’s actually believable. And the story is sprinkled with first-person narrative from main character Erin’s own blog, where she records her secret thoughts and feelings about starting the eighth grade, wanting to rule the school, having her first boyfriend (and her first breakup) and getting her more to treat her more like an eighth grader than an eight-year-old.


Title: The Sweet Life Of Stella Madison
Author: Lara M. Zeises


The Sweet Life Of Stella Madison


Story: When looking for this book, keep your eyes open for a picture of a girl licking chocolate off her finger on the cover. The story inside is just as sweet: Stella’s dad is a famous NYC chef and her mom owns an award-winning restaurant. Still, Stella prefers eating Burger King whoppers to gourmet cuisine. So what will happen when she snags a job at a newspaper reporting on local restaurants? Add two hot guys vying for Stella’s attention to the mix and you’ve got one sizzling summer read! Also fun: many chapters in this book start out with mouthwatering menus.


Title: Second Skin
Author: Jessica Wollman


Second Skin


Story: All Sam Klein wants is to be popular, and she discovers that the “it” girl at her school doesn’t owe her popularity to the expensive clothes she wears, her highlighted hair or a spot on the cheerleading squad, but an actual “second dskin” that no one else can see but everyone else can feel. Basically, when you wear the second skin you feel incredible – popularity is yours. So Sam steals the skin from it-girl Kylie – but will she love her new life or become desperate to get her old skin back? This is a sweet, quick and light read that will hopefully give you some insight into wanting something that may not be good for you.

    Have you tried special shampoo or special combs? I've never had them before but my best friend did. As bad as it feels, you will get rid of them eventually.

It is debate because there are different people debating over one argument. so yeah, do you still think its not debate ####### It's more the fact that you're asking us to choose between two awful things that vary in seriousness depending on context.
