What Katy Did > Susan M. Coolidge

Astralise > This book is about disobedience and saying you will do something tomorow when you could do it today. Katy always resolved to be good and to 'do something great to make her famous, but she didn't know what yet' when she grew up. Perhaps not realising how much she had grown already.This book is a 'children's classic' so I wouldn't try it if you aren't into the old-fashioned way of thinking.

Rating: ###

Avalon High > Meg Cabot

Astralise > Okay, this book is slightly weird.(And Freaky) so don't read it if your not into the slightly surreal.(sp) It's about King Arthur and the idea of reincarnation. Basically, the main character, Ellie, is starting at a new school. It isn't really unusual for her because both of her parents are professers, and professers love sabbaticals, which means she moves to new places yearly.And guess what, just in case the title doesn't suggest it, the school's name is Avalon High. Soon, she gets caught up in a plot of murder, and then theres...well, read the book and find out for yourself.
