This is a fiction book by Lauren Conrad and is the second book in the L.A Candy series. This book takes place in Los Angeles, California where the reality show L.A Candy is taken place. The main character is Jane Roberts and she is also known as America's sweetheart in the book. Jane is a very friendly person and loves her friends. But what Jane doesn't know is that, not all her friends are going to be telling the truth. The book is titled Sweet Little Lies, as you may infer, there is many problems occurring in the book and many lies taking place. Jane Roberts is tricked by another girl on the show named Madison Parker. Madison claims to be Jane's best friend but she really intends to make Jane's life miserable. Because of the leaked photo problem in the first book, Madison decided to take Jane to her parents' condo in Mexico, where there is no cell phone reception or paparazzi. Jane stayed until after Christmas to take a break from all the trouble; while leaving her best friend Scarlett in a very worried position. Madison did this to supposedly help Jane get off the phone and get away from the tabloids. But she did this so Scarlett wouldn't tell Jane that Madison was the problem. When Jane gets back home her best friend Scarlett tries to reach out to her and tell her the truth about Madison but Jane did not believe the truth. Later on in this book Jane finally believes Scarlett, once again, and begs for forgiveness while trying to move on with out Madison in her life. When Jane is finally getting over things and having a peaceful life with out the drama, what do you know? Madison gets a job at the same place Jane works at with Fiona Chen, which makes it harder to film on the show and even harder for Jane to get work done. Obviously the creator of the show, Trevor Lord is loving this because he wants to get the two girls on the show fighting, so that the ratings of the show will increase. Trevor also broke a promise to Jane that insured that she will not have to film any parts with Madsion. I think this is a very interesting part in this book because right when Jane is feeling better, the problems kick in. I think this is more of a girl book, so many girls will be interested in this book for sure. Every sentence in this book just makes the book even more interesting and unique in its own way. Check it out!
This is a biography that tells a story of a mans life throughout hurricane Katrina. The author is Dave Eggers. It's non-fiction and takes place in New Orleans, LA. The main character is a man named Abdulrahman Zeitoun. He has four kids and a wife named Kathy. Zeitoun owns a painting company and owns many properties in his city. Kathy helps out with the painting company with all the calls and making sure everything is going smoothly and well. Zeitoun loves his family and always wants the best for them. He is very humble and always looking to help people. An interesting part in this book is throughout the hurricane. The whole book is unique and different in its own way. It's so hard to believe that it's a true story. Kathy and the kids go off to her mothers house so they can stay away from the hurricane while Zeitoun stays home and watches his priorities. When the hurricane hits he finds an old canoe and uses it to be able to go around his neighborhood. While doing that he actually saves an old heavy woman's life. She was stuck and was about to drown but Zeitoun and his friend go over there and have her go on the canoe and they were able to get her out. Zeitoun also helps an old couple that needed to get out of their house. This was one interesting part in the book out of many. Zeitoun went through a lot in this book. He got arrested because of his race and armed men thought he was apart of the Al Qaeda which was another reason they arrested him. Kathy found out about this and got memory loss and a stress syndrome. This was a very good book and I would recommend it to anyone. As a matter of fact, i actually told a lot of people about it that are out of school. I think anyone that likes true stories will really enjoy this book. I loved this book and will check out more of Dave Eggers books.
This quarter has also brought me some interesting books. I tried to catch up with the Pretty Little Liars series and others. I really enjoy fiction books.
Zeitoun by Dave Eggers- this was a biography about a man with the last name of Zeitoun and his journey throughout hurricane Katrina.
Dollhouse by Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé Kardashian- this novel is fiction and is about three sisters who became famous but then realize that it's not that easy and great to have their lives watched. The sisters became jealous of each other and family problems occurred during their journey.
Perfect by Sara Shepard- This was the third book in the Pretty Little Liars series and I really enjoyed it because it had a lot of extra details than the other two. Its genre is young adult/fiction.
