Tuesday Book Review 9

What would you call an enthusiastic person turned elementary school teacher turned mother to three adorable kids turned blogger turned full time writer? Well I can just put it down for you as Lindsey Leavitt. From penning down something as magical as the "Princess for Hire" series to something that is coming of age family story in "Sean Griswold's Head". There is an apparent honest in her writing and one gets addicted to it from the very beginning. Her stories are not only for the young adults but us adults as well.

Sean Griswold's Head
If stories can be weaved this way then there is so much to look forward to.

"Payton Gritas needs a focus object—something to focus her emotions on after discovering that her father’s been hiding his multiple sclerosis. Her guidance counselor suggested something inanimate but Payton chooses the thing she stares at during class: Sean Griswold’s head. They’ve been linked since third grade (Griswold-Gritas, it’s an alphabetical order thing), but she’s never really noticed him before. Payton starts stalking—er, focusing on—Sean’s big blond head, and her research quickly grows into something a little less scientific and a lot more crush-like. As Payton gets inside Sean’s head, Sean finds a way into her guarded heart. But obsessing over Sean won’t fix Payton’s fear of her dad’s illness. For that, she’ll have to focus on herself."

Such a story line indeed makes you want to read more.

Princess For Hire and The Royal Treatment

This set of books are sure to perk up your interest as you find yourself on a journey with Desi.

"When Desi Bascomb gets discovered by the elite Facade Agency–royalty surrogates extraordinaire–her life goes from glamour-starved to spectacular in a blink. As her new agent, Meredith, explains, Desi has a rare magical ability: when she applies the ancient Egyptian formula “Royal Rouge,” she can transform temporarily into the exact lookalike of any princess who needs her subbing services. Dream come true, right?"
