#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

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
