In My Mailbox [o3] Part 2

Continuted. Please view In My Mailbox (3) Part 1.

5.) Blind Faith by Ellen Wittlinger: After Liz Scattergood's grandmother, Bunny, dies, Liz's mother spirals into a deep depresion. She barely get sout of bed let alone does any work in her pottery studio like she used to. Then Liz's mom starts attending a spiritualist church, where she believes she can communicate with Bunny thorugh a medium. Liz thinks it's weird, but she agrees to go along - maybe it's a way for her and her mother to bond. But for Liz's atheist dad, the spiritualist church has the opposite effect - it drives him away for her mom and their family.

Without anyone to talk to, Liz turns to her new neighbor, Nathan. He's dealing with his own mother's terminal cancer, and together, Liz and Nathen help each other cope in the wake of loss. In this moving novel, acclaimed author Ellen Wittlinger explores how a loved one's death impacts who are left behind.

6.) Peace, Love & Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle: Wealth, privilege, and way too many pastel-tinted opinions...that's Carly's life. And guess what? It's. Getting. On. Her. Nerves.

Carly wants to be real, and she 's always counted on her little sister, Anna, to love her and support her - and tell her how right she is. But when Anan turns "hot" over the course of a single summer, everything goes weird. Suddenly Anna's swimming in the deep end with the big girls - the plastic-perfect-pretty-girls- while Carly watches, hurt, from the kiddie pool. And of course there are boys involved, complicating things as boys always do.

With warmth, insight, and an unparaelled gift for finding humor even in stormy situations, beloved author Lauren Myracle dives into the tumultious waters of sisterhood and shows that even sisters can laern to help each other stay alfoat.

7.) Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott: I wonder what it would be like to do high school things. To go out on the weekends. To kiss a guy. To have a normal life. A real one.

Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad's girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar...and that's just how she likes it.

Of course, that doesn't help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah's sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she's going crazy. Yet she's determined to make things work out the way she wants — only what she wants may not be what she needs....

Once again, Elizabeth Scott has created a world so painfully funny and a cast of characters so heartbreakingly real that you'll love being a part of it from unexpected start to triumphant finish.
Alright guys that's the end of my weekly In My Mailbox post, that should last for awhile or not. It depends on how fast I read all seven books. But I promise this time, I'll review each and every one, not skip three. Pinky promise - and I never break those [:
