The book that I read this month was called The School for Dangerous Girls, by V. C. Andrews. I decided to read this one because a few years ago, I was looking in a bookstore for a good read and took a look at this one. I decided that it sounded interesting but was too old for me. Now, at the appropriate age for the book, I had to pick it up after recognizing it at the library. And it wasn't a bad book! It was kind of mor the kind of thing I would have read…

I love to read. I love it a lot. But as my social life and sleep dwindles, I have begun to develop a conspiracy theory. And once you hear it, you will begin to get as scared as me.


Every school night, I get home and do homework. These are not the papers I want to be holding. But I finis up anyway, and after some dilly-dallying that usually consists of painting or watching TV, I have dinner. Promptly afterwards, I say…
