**Weekly Writing Challenge!**


Another week, another opportunity to win Harper Teen books!!! And stretch your creative talents!

The newest Weekly Writing Challenge is running in accordance with Tara Hudson's Hereafter. This new supernatural YA features Amelia, a girl who faintly believes she is dead but can't remember anything about her life. She just aimlessly floats in a river, wondering if she'll ever remember who she once was.

But then a boy falls in the water she's been floating in. Her desire to save him changes everything...

I don't know about you, bibliophiles, but I think that Harper Teen's books have been sounding a little too good lately!!! I think this sounds awesome!

So, anyway - your challenge is to write a story, essay or poem that centers on overcoming a great barrier to communicate with someone. This time around the author of Herafter, Tara Hudson, will actually choose the two writing winners!!! The two comment winners will be random - but y'all will win a copy of Hereafter and three other Harper Teen books of your choice!!!

You have to enter by May 5th, so check out all the details here!

See ya on Monday! :)

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…
