"Money is the god of the twenty-first century, It divides us and defines us. But it is no longer enough to have enough. You have to have more than enough."



Here's the trailer for Beastly, looks good so far. Though not enough to give me a real opinion.

Books in the mail

I ordered two books from Amazon and a movie, and they came in today. Yes!! Well here they are.

Pages: 185
There's just something about Flynn. Yes, he's a tall, unbelievably gorgeous, dark-haired football player, but . . . he's also sweet and nice and super easy to talk to. It's lucky I'm the photographer for the school paper, because my camera likes Flynn almost as much as I do. Unfortunately for me, so does my sister, and there's no way I can nab Flynn with her in the picture.
But could this be the real thing?

Title: Beastly
Author: Alex Flinn
Pages: 300
A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.
You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.
Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.
