Welcome! (2)

I'm Amy, the second blogger. Well, Lydia pretty much explained it all with her post, except for things like we are Christians (proud of it), we love to make art, we both love to write, blah blah blah. So, I'll just get on with book reviews!

Philippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister by Liz Kessler (who is amazing!)- It's not really in the teen genre, which is mainly the books we read, but it's still awesome. This story is about a girl named Philippa Fisher (nah duh) whose best friend Charlotte is moving away to start a new life. On the day before Charlotte leaves, she comes over to say goodbye to Philippa. They go outside and start making daisy chains. Philippa picks one daisy that seemed...different. She had this weird feeling that this daisy would turn into a flower at midnight. Little did she know that a feeling turns out to be a reality.

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks-It was BEAUTIFUL! I loved it. I just saw the movie today and they killed it! I like the movie, mainly because Channing Tatum is in it, but I like the book better. That's usually always the case. Anyway, this story is in the perspective of John Tyree, an army soldier. The story starts out telling about his childhood and his dad and how the army straightened him out. One day while he was on leave in his home town, he saves a girl's bag when it fell off the pier into the ocean. Her name is Savannah. They soon fall in love, and as the story goes on, they go through trajedy, confusion, drama, etc.
