#1: I Want You Back - E.Van Lowe

To begin with, I’m not a nice girl. Don’t get me wrong, I used to be a nice girl. I used to be kind, and helpful, considerate and thoughtful. The kind of girl who went to all of her boyfriend’s games, even though she hates basketball; the kind of girl who helped her boyfriend study for his English final while she should have been studying for her own calculus final; the kind of girl that the boys at school lovingly call, oh, what’s that cute little name they have for us again? Oh, yes—Doormat. 

15 year-old Emy Garnett has come up with the perfect revenge for the super-popular boyfriend who dumped her–on Facebook, no less! Emy has purchased a love spell from a local gypsy, and is now armed with a foolproof plan guaranteed to win him back… with a few, hilarious bumps along the way.

REVIEW:
To the point.
I appreciate the turnaround of the story. I had to wonder about Madame Leveau, and what her intentions were. I was happy nothing happened as I thought it would. For most of the story I didn't like Emy. She needed a wake-up call, and eventually she got it, though not how you would think.
Teen girls should read this short story. It shows them you need to be an independent girl and not let some boy run your world, but in the most clever of ways.
Great writing for such a short story. Little things really do have more impact.

4.5/5

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
