As You Wish by Jackson Pearce (September 2009/HarperTeen) – First off, I think Jackson Pearce is just the coolest (you should check out her Youtube!) I really like the plot of this book; definitely unique and mythical. There's a genie and the three wishes, but there is a twist to it. The genie falls for the Viola and Viola falls in love with him. I can't wait to see how it plays out.
The First Part Last by Angela Johnson (June 2003/Simon & Schuster) – When I was in 7th grade, my English teacher started reading this book to us, but I guess we got too busy or something and could never finish it; we only got about 15 pages in. It's about a teenage guy that gets a girl pregnant and the girl goes into a coma during labor and struggles with raising the baby. I hear there's a surprise ending or something.
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols (March 2009/MTV Books) – I have only heard good things about this book and I absolutely love the sound of it. Meg just wants to get away from her town and the love interest, John, is the complete opposite of her...I love the sound of their relationship!
So, what do you guys think of this feature? I don't really like the name of this feature, but couldn't think of anything else. I would love any suggestions! : )

I won this ARC from Charlottes Library! Thanks!!Jailed at age sixteen for armed robbery, Nathan Henry was the kind of teenager most parents and teachers have nightmares about. His crime was the culmination of a life lived on the edge: guns and drugs, sex and violence, all set against the ordinary backdrop of a one-stop light town in rural Illinois. Nate’s personal history is both disturbing and fascinating. A rough childhood becomes an adolescence full of half-realized violent fantasies that slowly build to the breaking point. But these scenes alternate with chapters about Nate’s time in jail, where through reading and reflection he comes to see that his life can be different from all he’s known up to this point.

As you can see, I kind of changed how I do my reviews around a little. If you would take just a few minutes, I would love your input on my reviews!

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human ... until the cold makes him shift back again.Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado . Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.
