  1. I have about 30 pages left in Sunrise over Fallujah. I have really enjoyed it. Walter Dean Myers is a must ready for anyone who reads YA. I love that Myers recognizes that women serve in military. When I saw the new It Chicks on the cart the other day I squealed.

  2. I just got through with Getting Even by ReShonda Tate Billingsley, which just came out. Its the fourth in her Good Girlz series and it is sooooo good!
