You won't believe this but this is about a search for a grown man's stolen Barbie, or,okay, Blondie, Doll.

In the 1890's, 3 women were sentenced to death for murdering children that they had taken for money.
Mama's Babies is based on these real-life 'baby farmers', and is seen from the point of view of a (fictional) teenaged girl who begins to realize her life isn't normal, as children continue to join her "mama"s household and eventually disappear mysteriously.

3.0 out of 5 stars You'll Never be a Metropolismaniac!!, March 13 2004
If you can get past the tongue-twister title, Metroplismania is a cute game.
But is it fun? Maybe a little.
The idea is to build a city to contain a certain amount of residents in a particular time space.
I will always try any simulation game.This one is fairly fun, but a little monotnous.
Basically the idea is to place down houses and shops and talk to the residents of the town.Agree with everything they say!And give them gifts you know they will like.One of the goals is to make them like you!!
Give it a go, but don't buy it.It isn't worth buying.I also found the controls horrendous.This is the first PS2 game I have played since purchasing my own PS2 console yesterday afternoon.I hope maneuvers are easier in other games.
Overall, a cute game, an OK game, with a pale humour.But what age range would love this game?That's a hard one.There is not enough to it to be adored by grown ups or teens.Yet the controls in this game take some getting used to, so I'm not sure if it would be children.Not small children.
Maybe kids around the age of 10 would really enjoy it.
To end this review, let me rermind you I have given this game 3 stars.That means it's worth a look, but it isn't the Sims!!!

Invincible Summer
Invincible Summer
by Jean Ferris
Edition: Paperback
12 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars For All Seasons, Aug. 6 2003
Ce commentaire est de: Invincible Summer (Paperback)
Rick and Robin are soulmates,but the tragedy is that they are both fughting leukemia...this book's going to make some people cry so be sure the tissue box is full and close by.
I almost gave this amazing story 5 stars.Only Jean Ferris' talk of God made me lower it...for the reason that I'm not too sure she likes Him.
Robin's virginity issue couldn't have been handled more tastefully.
Invincible Summer follows Rick and Robin's relationship through each of the 4 seasons.
This is a beautiful and gripping story but expect it to end with a question mark.

4.0 out of 5 stars ..., Aug. 6 2003
Ce commentaire est de: Stranger Online (Paperback)
This is a great novel for teen girls.It is mysterious,suspenseful and features christianity and bible verses as well as an incredibly nice character.She was too nice,WAAAAy too nice,for her own good.That guy who was angry because she didn't let him cheat off his paper...you'll never know how badly I wanted to see his teeth knocked out.Well,ahem anyway,who is threatening Treesap(I mean Amber :) ) via e-mails?

4.0 out of 5 stars I have to try and remember this one.., Aug. 6 2003
But I think I recall that it was pretty good.If that helps...
2 cousins(It is sooooooooooo twisted and gross that she had the hots for him)fall down a well and travel back in time to a castle that really exists.Don't ask me to remember it's name."The Hand" was a carving of a hand near the well.
By the way,...the girl on the cover was sooooo pretty,i couldn't believe it.

This Place Has No Atmosphere
by Paula Danziger
Edition: Paperback
22 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want More Books Just Like This One!, Aug. 6 2003
Aurora lives in the late 2000's!She is not exactly over the Earth when her family goes to live on the Moon!!!!!
An absolutely FUN novel with Danziger's interesting views of the future as written in the 1980's.
Linda M's own thought;The book involved robots,or at leat one robot whose job is school monitor.In the 1980's that is waht people looked forward to,a beyond 2000 with robots.Funnily,I believe robots are now OUTDATED!In my honest opinion,they were a thing of the 80's and ,well, just aint cool anymore!!
