79 books down, 198 days to go!

Hey!  I finished four scattered books.  Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, After, Before I Die, and Girl, Stolen.  Dash and Lily's Book of Dares is about a girl and a boy who meet through a little red notebook.  A red notebook that the two kids communicate between, and to find the clues of each others lives, they must follow the dares of the book.  Great book!  After is about a girl, 15 years old, who gets pregnant over the summer.  After first, she is in such overwhelming denial, that she doesn't even know she is pregnant.  But when the day comes where she gives birth alone on her bathroom floor, her distraught sense makes her do the unthinkable.  She throws "IT" in the trash to die.  Now she is in a detention center, as her fate is decided whether or not she will have a life sentence.  Before I Die is about a girl who is dying of cancer at age sixteen/seventeen who has a strong bucket list to finish before she, well, kicks the bucket.  But when her illness takes over her, she starts to learn just how little control she has on her life, and it literally begins to slip through her fingers.  Girl, Stolen is about a girl, 16 years of age, who is kidnapped.  But she is no normal girl.  She has pneumonia, and is blind.  Once she is held hostage, where her prisoners hold her for her dad's money, she must realizes that she can't trust everyone.  Can she even trust anyone?  She is faced with tough thoughts, but the most frequent is frightening.  Am I going to live?

All great books, though After was very disturbing.  My favourite was definitely Girl Stolen.  Maybe Dash and Lily's Book of Dares.
