the best books I would say that have ever been written , why in a century, in all of English history. It is idiotic, stupid and a work of jealousy to rate them low.

Neverland Report Abuse
A modern-day fairy tale, with a bit of mystery and enchantment and stark realism thrown into the mix. Makes you smile. Makes you frown. Makes you sit down and think.

The Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Sheppard Report Abuse
These books are full of suspense. When you think it's over, there's a new twist added. Sara Sheppard does a fabulous job connecting to the reader's need for drama. She knows how to grab a reader's attention and keep it. Anyone who hasn't read the books really needs to before they watch the series on TV. The books really are the best thing I have ever read in my entire life.
