My review for Stunning:

I give Stunning 4 stars. At the end of Ruthless, it turned out that Kay was Kelsey and she was on pills when she took Emily to where Mona died. Kelsey tried to jump off, but Emily saved her. Kelsey ends up going to Preserve, which is the same mental hospital both Ali and Hannah went to. Not much happens to Emily, but the others experience a lot more. Hannah’s new boy is her father’s senate competitor’s son. Spencer did get accepted into Princeton so the note was a fake, but she did great at the play. Aria’s Ezra goes to Klaudia after she says she’s not ready to tell anyone their plans. Finally, A hasn’t been found yet.

So in Stunning, we find out how Emily gave away her baby girl. She promised her daughter to a woman named Gayle who turns out to be crazy, but Emily gave her baby to a better couple. Now Gayle is coming after her. What will Gayle do to her if she does find Emily? On top of that, Emily sees her ex, Isaac who is also her baby’s father. He wants to start over, but she wants to tell him about their daughter. She just doesn’t want her parents finding out. Will she tell him? Will her parents find out? Hannah’s ex-boyfriend (Aria’s brother), Mike, found another girl and Hannah becomes jealous and realizes she wants him back. How far will she go? Will she get him back? Spencer is trying to fit in with the popular kids, but it isn’t what she thought it would be like. Will she fit in or will she end up being alone when she starts college? Aria and Noel are back together and promise to tell the truth with each other, Noel’s father has a secret and Aria finds out about it.She doesn’t know whether she should tell Noel because her parents divorced because of a secret she held. Will she tell Noel about his father? Finally, will A be stopped? And will they stop getting haunted by Tabitha’s death?

Day 13: Least Favorite Faction

     My least favorite faction is Amity. Amity seems to be blinded by their happiness. It’s impossible to be happy and at peace all the time. The also give peace serum to those who misbehave. The peace serum is based on weight, but if one gets too much it’s as if they’re on some illegal drug from today. They’re definitely hippies in disguise.

Day 13: Your Favorite Writer

     My favorite writer is Gayle Forman. She wrote the If I Stay series, which is I love and it’s one of my favorites. There’s only 2 books in the If I Stay series. The 2nd book is called Where She Went. She also wrote a new book that I read and it was good. This book is Just One Day. The If I Stay series is based on music and Just One Day is based on travelling and adventures, which are 2 of my favorite things to do other than reading.

Day 12: Favorite Faction

     This one is easy. It’s Dauntless, but Abnegation is more of the faction that I was born in based on how I’m raised. My bravery tends to get me to places I could never imagine. I like to do things a lot of people are scared to do. Butt then there’s the way I do my school work. I work really hard to get ahead of my class, and tend to take on more than I can do without stress but I end up getting all of it finished.

Day 12: A Book You Used to Love But Don’t Anymore

     Back in middle school I loved the The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot. I have the complete series with matching covers, which include 10 normal sized novels and 3 or 4 novellas that go along with the story. I’m not saying that I don’t like them, but I’m saying these books were topped by other books and I matured over the last 3-5 years. The books are still very good and I definitely recommend them over the movies.

Day 11: Favorite Quote

     Well I have many, which I have written them down when I read both books the 2nd time. I will give 1 quote for each book.

From Divergent:

“Fear doesn’t shut you down. It wakes you up.” -Four/Tobias, Chapter 24

I love this because it’s very true in my life and now I try to use it in a positive way now.

From Insurgent:

“Sometimes the people you oppress become mightier than you would like. -Johanna, Chapter 47

I find this also very true because I see it everyday, while many people don’t. I try to be someone who encourages others because everyone has the potential to do good things with the right guidance.

Also notice courage in encourage.

Day 11: A Book You Hated

     A book that I hated is The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. This is also a book that I read in my freshman year in high school. I didn’t like the book because of the main character. He also complained about his life, his friends, and people he didn’t even know. He lied a lot and he was a very hypocritical person. This book was just too pessimistic for me.
