“Lucious, sweet, exotic flavour. Rich and blooming and steaming just beneath my nose. I snaked my long neck towards the fire with lethal speed. ‘What is that?’ ‘Wh-wh-what?’… Bliss exploded through my senses. I reeled with pleasure. Chocolate chocolate chocolate – ‘Ahhhhh!’ and then everything exploded inside me, and the world went black.”
“Makena Walsh inhaled the smell of the sweet spring grass as a gentle breeze tickled her face and a crop of sweat rolled down her cheek. Soccer was an awesome and simple game, and there was nothing in the world she loved more than being outside, playing with friends, kicking and running free.”
“Lots of thing have changed since my last first week of school…but all those changes seem little compared to the big change that happened over the summer. Dad moved out. When your parents decide to get a divorce, someone has to leave.”
I am delighted to introduce to you our guest teen reviewer Elizabeth. What I love is that she reads a variety of books and has been reading a series her grandma was reading as a child.
