#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!

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.
