All including secrets only Alison knew, but they come with threats. So the girls start to talk again, trying to figure out who 'A' is. It's can't Alison...Right? I give this book four stars. I wish the story had a little more ground to it, but other than that it was really good. ...

I know that pretty much everyone has read Harry Potter by now, but bear with me. I've only recently read the first book in the series. In my defense, I've only had fourteen years. Anyway, let's get to the review. Harry Potter has never heard of Hogwarts before the letters came. But before he could take even a peek at any of them, they are quickly confiscated by his obnoxious aunt and uncle. They try to keep them away, but every time they ignore one, a dozen more are sent. Angered, his uncle moves them to an empty cabin. On Harry's eleventh birthday, a giant man named Hagrid breaks into the cabin, claiming that Harry's a famous wizard, that has been invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. That's when his adventure begins. I, obviously, give this book five stars. My favorite characters are definitely the twins. If I had to choose between them, I'd say Fred. He seems more carefree. I guess it's because of how he says things. Maybe...
Me Before You is about an ordinary young woman named Louisa Clark. Louisa has never been out of the small village she and her family live in. When she applies for the only job she can find, she doesn't know what to expect. She gets the job and has to help care for Will Traynor, a man in a wheelchair. Will has pretty much traveled all over the world, until the accident that destroyed it all. He isn't happy about this new life and hasn't hidden his feelings. In fact, he's probably done the complete opposite. He has been moody, rude, and bossy. At first, Louisa doesn't say anything, but then she decides that he shouldn't be treated as a kid. Louisa ends up caring for him dearly and when she figures out his plans, she begins the mission to show him that life can still be extraordinary. He just has to accept that is won't be exactly the same as before. I loved this book. It deserves five stars. I love how realistic it is. The ending was kind of shocking, b...
