Green Angel by Alice Hoffman
Green Angel by Alice Hoffman
4.0 out of 5 stars The guilt of a survivor, July 19 2004
GREEN ANGEL by Alice Hoffman is a beautiful tale - a long poem, really - teeming with lyrical prose that is reminiscent of Francesca Lee Block's books. At a mere 120 pages, it doesn't seem to last long enough.
Green was once a calm, serene, and quiet young girl. One day, after her family goes off to sell produce for profit without letting her tag along, Green is angered. But her anger changes to sorrow when she finds they won't be coming home. A catastrophic conflagration has swept the earth, taking lives. It leaves behind black ash, making the world a dark and ominous place in which the daily task of living is a challenge. Now Green, filled with guilt, must be self-sufficient,… Read more

Vegan Virgin Valentine by Carolyn Mackler
VEGAN VIRGIN VALENTINE. Yes, Mara Valentine is a high school senior who is a strict vegan, off animal meat and animal byproducts.

She has type A blood, receives only A's in school, and wears an A-cup bra.
Vivienne Vail Valentine. She is slutty, pot and cigarette-smoking, and merely sixteen. She is also Mara's niece, despite the… Read more
Complete Book of Colleges, 2004 Edition by Princeton Review
Being that I'm just getting psyched about choosing colleges, I haven't really read any other guides yet, so I didn't have any to compare this one to. However, since I want to go to a good school, (Vassar, NYU, Vanderbilt, Drexel, Emory, UCLA, this list goes on...) I thought that this would help me select more options to add to my list, as well as help me to rule out options that aren't for me.
On a helpful factor, I'd rate this book an 8. Each college blurb contains insight on activities, admissions, tuition and financial aid, the school's phone number, website, and what they look for in prospective students, as well as the school's enrollment, which is always good to know.
