This book is by the same author that wrote Bad Girls Don't Die which has been a very popular series for the past several years at MMS. I was excited to read it for this reason, and I was not disappointed. Willa has just moved to Hollywood because her mother was just remarried to a famous Hollywood producer. All of Hollywood is focused on a serial killer who targets hopeful young actresses. Willa has been seeing visions of the victims and hopes that she can find the killer before it is too late!!!

I LOVED this book! This is a true story written by Mya Vanwagonen who finds an old copy of a book called Betty Cornell's Teen-Aged Popularity Guide originally published in the 1950's. Mya, a self proclaimed geek, decides to try the advice in the book right down to buying a girdle and wearing skirts and pearls to school everyday. Through it all Mya discovers what popularity really means. Many times when reading the book, I was struck by the contrast between the type of life Cornell describes in the 1950's with Mya's life living in Brownsville Texas today. Try this book if you want a true story of a girl who finds her real self by getting out of her comfort zone. This book can be found in the non-fiction section under 921 VAN

Next thing he knows, he is surrounded by all sorts of ocean life including...SHARKS! Will his family find him in time?! By the way, this book is written by the same author that wrote Trapped.
