Alex Flinn is an amazing author when it comes to teenage romance stories. Gaze into the secret love life between a beauty (Lindy) and a beast (Kyle) and how they slowly fall for each other no matter what they look like, ending in a tragic curse and changing fate. You would like this book if you like… Breathing Underwater.

Parody: The Biscotti Kid (The Karate Kid by B.B. Hiller)


Book Review: Doctor Sleep by Stephen King


Image


The child from The Shining is now full grown, yet he still experiences the same horrors as he did when he was young and living in the old hotel with his parents. He lives alone in an old apartment, and struggles to find a way to control the "Shining." There is a cult, which possibly kills it's members, who also hold the "gift." After coming to terms with some awful ordeals and acts which he commits, he strives to find this cult which is supposed to help him. This is a great read by an excellent author. It is exciting and fulfilling. The language is excellent, and the novel in itself seems to flow along it's pages. I would recommend this novel for a mature audience, however, as it is an explicit horror novel. You would like this book if you like… horror or Stephen King.
