#49: Confessions Of A Hater by Caprice Crane

High school was pretty much like this huge party I wasn't actually invited to, but I still had to show up to every day.
Hailey Harper has always felt invisible. Now her dad has a new job and the family is moving to Hollywood. Just what Hailey needs: starting a new high school.
As she's packing, Hailey finds a journal that belonged to her older sister, Noel, who is away at college. Called "How to be a Hater," it's full of info Hailey can really use. Has Hailey found the Bible of Coolness? Will it help her reinvent herself at her new school? Will her crush notice her? Will she and the other Invisibles dethrone the popular mean girls? After all, they deserve it. Don't they?
In Confessions of a Hater, Caprice Crane's funny--and deeply felt--observations about high school, bullies, popularity, friendship, and romance will leave teens thinking . . . and talking.

REVIEW:
OMG, so funny!
Seriously, I was laughing out loud at times. Of course, there was some serious moments too, and even a couple of sad ones. All-in-all, it made for one great story! 
We can all relate to high school and wanting to fit in somewhere. This story is a cute look at that part of life and all of its' clichés, but with a twist. The author, Caprice Crane, is so talented. The story flows with fast with the ease of her writing. She teaches a valuable bully lesson in the story too. It had a ton of impact on me. I just know it would have the same effect on other readers. It's so powerful.
As you can plainly tell, I LOVED this book. I know most of you, if not all, will too. Get it today!

5/5

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…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger
