This is a phenomenal book, with an exquisite writing style. Completely captivated, you enter a dangerous and luring world between two women. The plot is clever and it really has a story that you want to follow. Brilliant! A fun and horrifying book to read. The author is very talented and I'll probably be purchasing more of her books sometime, but The need is completely riveting.

This book really toys with your mind in a good way, not in a weird alien way. This book makes you think. It makes you become really attached to the characters. You're not reading this book you're IN this book. The plot in this book is simply amazing and with the way it is, It's easily one of my favorites. It's so different Than mostly anything on the market and I love every aspect of it, David levithan is my favorite author for this reason, all of his books that I've read are all so different and perfectly written. I don't just recommend this book I really really really actually want you to read it.
5/5 Stars. This book is my SHIT.

This book had me going though so many emotions. Which is a great thing. This is a book with a love story, but also with an abuse scenario, And the adoration for the small things. After reading this I can tell you that I'm glad an author like this is on the earth because this book is so unique. I love how the characters are so flawed and broken. It's real life in fiction, this book. I highly recommend this. It's made me laugh, smile, cry all in probably ten minutes of reading it.
It deals with bullying and verbal/ physical abuse, but it's amazing. The book can probably open some people's eyes who aren't so aware. 5/5 Stars.

I read this book when I was in the sixth grade. It was the first book I've ever fell in love with. Its a pick me up read for me, The love interest is between two boys. Paul and Noah. These two boys have been my best friends since I've read about them. Am I crazy? Maybe. Probably. But this is a must read in my book, (puns, ha) And I'm currently re reading it for the second time, that's how terrific I feel this book, and this author, is. The plot, the characters, the ending are all perfect to me and I cannot express my love for this book enough. But long story short, This book is one that you would never regret reading. It's not just a cute love story it has depth.
If you're a homophobe, Then this isn't so much for you. And you aren't my cup of tea either.
5/5 stars. I love this book. It's addicting.
Basically anything by David Levithan are must reads.

2: Who is your favorite author?

I know a lot of people prefer pristine because of how clean and neat they are, but I personally prefer old damaged books because of how much memories they old in just their cover.
4: Is cracking the spine of a book acceptable in your eyes?
Yes, because it can be easy to lay out on a table instead of having to hold it out to read it and it gives it that old looking affect but I hope the books dont feel it. I don't personally do it unless my book is way too tightly bound.

Hmm, I don't watch much movies but Speak by Laurie halse Anderson because the movie
Stayed true to the book!

This book is one of my all time favorites.
It built me and it broke my heart simultaneously. I love this book and I love the back story on the authors inspiration for it. You know its a good book when it touches your heart and makes you cry while throwing chairs. I related so deeply to this book and if you are going through something and are contemplating suicide or self harm or anything or understand the concept or even if you don't, read this book.
Everything about this book was so crazily perfect, how it was set up, the characters, the settings, Even the cover and the authors acknowledgment was perfect. It also has websites for people who have personal problems in this book, You need it!
Depression, suicide, and coping with a loss are just small categories among many that I could put this book into. Its beautiful and heart wrenching. 5/5 stars.
At first, Delirium was a drag. I didn't get into it until the middle-ish. After I got into it, I really got into it. It captivated me. I loved it. Although this is a series, I decided not to continue with it. Just because I feel it's good as a solo and I didn't want to know what happened. I've heard bad and good things about the series but I really liked Delirium. Give it time, And maybe you will too!
Love, hurt, finding yourself and what's right. 4/5 stars.
5/5This book was really hyped, and I see why. It was so great, It had me up until 3 a.m. finishing it, Although it was not the most extraordinary book I've ever read it was very good. If you don't know what its about go check out the overview on Barnes and noble or some other place; one thing is for certain. Red queen is Interesting. A little different. Intriguing. And teaches you a life lesson; Any one can betray anyone. It's beautiful, for sure. The cover and the inside. The words. Perfect. I recommend this to anybody who wants an Adventure, Magic,or captivating book with developed characters and am awesome protagonist. ~Savannah

~Go read the overview on barnes and noble~
Hello! I've recently read the book Breaking butterflies by M. Anjelias (?) And it was a very good piece of work. I read it in two days, and its not very big at all. The characters were perfect and the plot was superb, the only problems I have with this book would be that I expected more than I received. I thought it'd be a lot more emotional but I'm pretty sure I didn't cry once. I'd give it 4/5 stars just because it downplayed my expectations. But it was amazing and I highly recommend it!

Well, First things first if you've never read Laurie Halse Anderson's books, and you enjoy contemporary, Life journey, realistic teen fiction, GO BUY A BOOK BY HER. She is amazing. Even if you don't like the genre. She's amazing. She's a beautiful writer and Her books are exquisite. This book, the impossible knife of memory, Is of course very good in my opinion based on the writing style.
Now inserting description of book
Hayley is the daughter of a veteran, and his PTSD colors every aspect of their lives. After serving his country, Andy is trying to rebuild some stability for himself and his daughter, but each day is a challenge for them both. Hayley lives with the constant threat of her father harming himself or others while also dealing with feelings of abandonment after essentially losing her parental figures. She copes through snark and skepticism but begins to let her guard down when her charming, easygoing classmate, Finn, gives her a much-needed taste of normal teenage life. A relationship with Finn opens the door to the possibility of trusting again, but it's not easy. Through Hayley's tenuous search for balance, Anderson explores the complicated nature of perception and memory, and how individuals manage to carry on after experiencing the worst. Readers will be thoroughly invested in this book's nuanced cast of characters and their struggles.
It does deal with some "Mature content", some would say. But I'm extremely comfortable with that and I'd rate it 5/5 stars.
Overall, This book has very intriguing characters and deals with things that expand your knowledge and how you see things. Its very vivid and lovely, Painful but lovely. Pick up this book, and I dare you to put it down.
