Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg: Book Review/Giveaway

by Summer Lane

Lexi has a controlling mother who's obsessed with beauty pageants, her sister is a brat, her dad is distant, and Lexi herself is in a rut. She doesn't think much about herself, and she's consigned herself to live apart from the "Beautiful Ones" at school, deliberately putting no effort into her appearance to defy the stereotype of the standards of teen beauty. But when she and her best friend Benny make a bet, she gets glammed up for one week at school. Things kind of go off the rails from that point onward.

What I Did On My European Summer Vacation

by Kristalyn Patzkowski

Seeing as my mom and I travel every summer, I wasn’t surprised last fall when my mom asked me where I would like to go for the upcoming summer vacation. I didn’t surprise her either when I suggested going to Russia, or more specifically my birthplace. My mom knew that at one point in time I would want to go back to my roots, so she had already done some research. Much to her disappointment though, she wasn’t able to find enough information about the town where I was born.
