He’s looking at me like – well, like he wants to look at me. Like he likes what he sees, and he’s smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint glow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and not yet able to do it.
“Sarah,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my corazón slam bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone tu can’t have. To want someone tu shouldn’t even be looking at.
Sarah is in quite the predicament. She’s riding that rollercoaster of first amor – the pain, the exhilaration, the ups and downs. Only problem is, she’s doing it solo – unrequited style. She’s been in amor with Ryan since the eighth grade, but now he’s dating her emotionally stunted best friend, Brianna, and Sarah is forced to stumble through each day, the pain of seeing them together pulling at her insides with every segundo that passes.
Brianna has crappy parents who clearly don’t want her around, and Ryan seems to make Brianna feel like she matters to someone. At least, that’s how it looks to Sarah, which is why Sarah is so hell bent on keeping her feelings completely and totally to herself. How could she take Ryan away from Brianna, when she has so little to start with?
Besides, there’s no way Sarah could compete with the sassy, sexiness that is Brianna – and Brianna makes sure Sarah knows it every single day. Brianna might have crappy parents, but that’s no excuse for the way she treats those around her. Its obvious to the reader that Ryan is nothing más than a self-esteem booster for Brianna, and while she might actually amor Sarah, she doesn’t know how to mostrar it. I couldn’t help but wonder if Brianna only kept Sarah around to make herself feel better.
But then, it seems, Ryan sees through Brianna’s dance, and decides to take his affections elsewhere – right into the garden of Sarah! Turns out, Ryan has kind of been in amor with Sarah for ages, but got all caught up in the whirlwind that is Brianna and time just got away. But he wont stand for that anymore. He wants Sarah, and nothing – nothing – will stand in his way.
Not even Brianna, when she walks in on Ryan and Sarah lying curled up together in Sarah’s bed.
The Unwritten Rule is interesting exploration through the rules of dating and friendship. Were Ryan and Sarah wrong to pursue each other when Brianna was still so clearly caught in the middle. Did they consider her feelings enough? With the way Brianna was treating the pair of them, should they have considered her feelings at all? When is it okay to break the rules of friendship for matters of the heart? These are all preguntas I asked myself repeatedly throughout this story.
Sarah and Ryan are both likable characters, but I found Brianna to be shallow, callous and difficult to read. She’s clearly got some emotional issues, but the way she treats those around her makes my stomach squirm. You’d think, with her inicial life being so terrible and all, she’d value the amor of her friends a little more.
The Unwritten Rule is a inicial run for Elizabeth Scott. This is a great, contemporary chick lit read!

Teaser Quote: “I wasn’t happy with you? Brianna says. “Almost eight weeks, Ryan. And then tu go and – ” she glares at me. “Is this my anniversary present? tu could have at least picked someone decent. Someone I’d believe tu want and not just who tu used to make yourself feel better.”

Now, there are two types of memoirs in my mind: those about famous people, and those that aren't. Both have their pros and cons. más people are likely to notice a famous memoir at the bookstore and buy it based on the celebrity's name -- but "common folk" memoirs don't have pre-conceptions, politics, and religious perspectives to overcome. o you're like me, who likes whatever she reads as long as its good. Whatever tu like to read, here are a few memorable memoirs that I'd recommend tu read.

With memoirs written por writers, tu rightfully expect that the memoir is as good of a read as their...

The fourth book in the Iron Fey series is easily my favorito! and I’m sure I won’t be alone in thinking that. At the end of the third book, Meghan banished Ash from the Iron Realm, knowing he would stay por her side despite how harmful living in the Iron Realm would be to his health. But before he left, Ash made an oath that he would find a way to be with her. The Iron Knight tells the story of Ash’s...

This was a book reportar that I wrote for my English class. If you're thinking of lectura the Hunger Games, I suggest that tu look at this...

The Hunger Games is a very popular book among teens my age. It’s basically about a sixteen-year-old girl named Katniss whose sister (named Prim) was chosen to compete in the Hunger Games, which was an annual tournament where two children from each District (there are 12-ish) are forced to fight to the death on live television. Katniss apparently really loved her sister o something, because she volunteers to go in Prim’s stead.
I first picked up this...

When I look on youtube o even here, there are people that just want every one to hate the Twilight series and Edward most of all! THEY ARE FICTIONAL! And your all fighting like a bunch of babies! Its a book! tu dont have to like it and I am not telling tu to read it if tu haven't.
I agree, amor does not work like she explains it, and this book is pretty stereotypical but thats not the point!
Us kids and Teens know that vampiros and hombres lobo are NOT real but we have every right to like what we want to like!
I see that some people are waiting for someone like Ewdard to come and sweep them...
