Thanks everyone for entering.
Only her stubbornness would keep a knife out of her father's heart. She knew he was her enemy, her subtle foe, her cold opponent over the chessboard. But he was still her father. p.302I'm actually really sorry I didn't read this sooner because I really liked it. It moved at a great pace that kept me reading along and I had to resist the urge to stay up all night long to read it. I even put the audio version on my Zune so I didn't have to stop with it when I couldn't read. It was amazing how creepy both sides of the world were. Incarceron is a hellhole of a prison where the actual prison is alive and thinking and watching, always watching. It throws up obstacles and messes with the prisoners and generally screws with their lives for it's own amusement. And on the Outside, the world has been put into a self-imposed stasis, hearkening back to a sort of Victorian Gothic Era, in order to belay violence and disorder in the world. So the two words are vastly different and yet very similar in a way.
It's quiet and the lights are low as Janie and Cabel push through the double doors into the ICU patients' hallway. Janie feels the faint pull of a dream from a distance and she combats it immediately, impatiently.

"You're blond, blue-eyed, tall, fit, gifted, oh, and to top it all off, the sexiest guy on the planet just happens to be madly in love with you." She sighs, wondering how I can possibly be so blind to her truth. "I mean, let's face it, you've got the kind of life other people can only dream of - and yet, you make it look like the road to Suck City." p.11 ARC
The crowd parted before her, making her escape dramatic and also quite fast.
Which was good, because as the clock ticked closer to midnight, something was happening to her shoes...

"Suppose we see if this girl detective can solve the mystery of the locked cabin with both her hands and feet tied..." p.158SPOILER She can. Well at least she's smart enough to stay alive until Ned and the gang arrive.**
The very first night she heard her parents arguing, she had whispered one last goodbye to Ethan and then set to locking him out of her head. p.24 ARC
But I just stand there instead, determined to keep it together. Gazing at my ridiculously gorgeous boyfriend of the last four hundred years as though it's the first time we've met. p.40Oh Ever, still as dumb as a rock. What a waste of an Immortal given her inability to make even a smitten of the right choice. At least her intentions are good, but she never wants to listen to anyone. Always convinced that she is the exception and knows more than the people who have been around a lot longer than her. Damen is a freaking saint for putting up with her BS though he had his moments in Blue Moon.
And that's all it takes. The mere mention of my name on his lips and I'm liquid.
Pure molten liquid.

"Everything is energy."
Zee had been only two places that day - her house and school. Oh no! If the diary was at school, maybe someone had found it and read it. p.54This was an extremely cute book. It was so fun and lively and Zee was an awesome girl! She has great friend and is very talented and very enthusiastic so that was fun. The main plot is about Zee losing her diary but the subplot is about a music competition. Zee writes her own music and she doesn't know what to do when her diary is stolen. There is a lot of "be yourselfs" and "doing your bests" in this book (without being preachy) and I think it is a great book for middle graders. I can see this on the Disney Channel or ABC Family.
But Zee knew her mother would never understand what wa really important to her. It was Zee's dream to be a star, and the musical was her opportunity to shine. p.1Another cute book in the Mackenzie Blue series, I think this one is a little better since all the characters have been introduced. I can't figure out the Kathi character. She is given a lot of motivation for her behavior and then she acts out of character. Maybe that is a hallmark of the tween age, trying to figure out who you want to be. I like the illustrations in each book and think it adds to the story nicely.
Zee looked at Chloe. Jasper was right - crashing into a guy was not the best way to flirt. p.22This series gets better with each book. I love the way Zee is so real and the issues are exactly right for middle grade girls: crushes, best friend fights, fitting in, periods, etc. I remember all those things being so important at that age and I would have loved this series back then. I actually really enjoyed reading it now. Zee and her friends get into real and often humorous situations and the illustrations are so cute. I'm actually looking forward to the next book. This is a great series!
She sighed and led him to the bookshelves, thinking that the sooner he began his research, the sooner she would be able to stop talking. And sniffing him. p.164
