Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. It went down a road(no pun intended) that I was not expecting, but that is what I ended up loving about it!
I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover(but c'mon, we all do at some point!) but how could I  not want to read this when I see that colourful and totally badass cover?! Stine as a kid, but for some reason, as I got older, my love for the horror genre with books has fizzled. Any uncertainties I had about this book were slashed(like what I did there?) almost immediately! And I've always had a special fondness for stories that take place in the 50's or 60's, so that was my initial draw to this book. Laura Lane McNeal delivered this novel in such a way that you are left in awe until the very last page. Although I wasn't alive in the 1960's nor am I from the South, I believe that Laura Lane McNeal painted a pretty accurate picture of what life was like in New Orleans during that time!
Dollbaby will always be a top recommendation of mine, and I truly hope 20 years from now I see it sharing a spot on the Literature shelf among To Kill a Mockingbird and Pride and Prejudice. In 1991, she made her acting debut in the British critically-acclaimed coming-of-age drama, Young Soul Rebels. She performed in Scream of the Shalka — a webcast based on the BBC television series Doctor Who — as Alison Cheney, a companion of the Doctor. Tulip Jones in the movie Stormbreaker (2006) and Nancy in the 2007 television adaptation of Oliver Twist. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. For some reason, I had thought this book was going to be a light and funny read but it didn't turn out that way at all. I think anyone dealing with any of what Una LaMarch touches on in this book would find comfort in relating to the characters.
Because, I know he would turn that melting snow into a tear-inducing, heart-exploding love story!
Alright, now that that's out of the way, let's talk about why this book totally lived up to it's epic cover.

I have not read Merciless by Danielle Vega but you can bet that I will be heading out to the Bookstore to get it! We all know, as bookworms, that after a long day, there really isn't anything much better than winding down under the covers with a book! In 2004, she gained critical acclaim for her role as Tatiana Rusesbagina, the wife of Rwandan hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina in the genocide drama film Hotel Rwanda (2004).Her role earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, making her the second Black British actress to be nominated for an Oscar, and the third black Briton to be nominated for an Oscar.
As well as providing the character's voice, Okonedo's likeness was used for the animation of the character. She is also known for playing the part of the Wachati Princess in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. He has gone on to appear in a wide variety of films, including A Beautiful Mind (2001), Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003), Dogville (2003), and the adaptation of the novel The Da Vinci Code (2006). The unlikely pair escapes to a town where they stay with the Boatwright sisters (Queen Latifah, Sophie Okonedo, and Alicia Keys), who show Lily the wonders of beekeeping., Book club favorite THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES more than just survives its transition to the screen. I have to admit that the book started a off a bit slow for me, but redeemed itself very quickly. In 2010, Okonedo portrayed Queen Elizabeth the Tenth in the Doctor Who episodes The Beast Below and The Pandorica Opens. Julie lies dead and disemboweled in a dank, black subway tunnel, red-eyed rats nibbling at her fingers. And it will take Queenie and Dollbaby’s hard-won wisdom to show Ibby that family can sometimes be found in the least expected places.
Dakota Fanning stars as Lily, a 14-year-old girl living with her abusive father (Paul Bettany) in South Carolina in 1964. It gets pretty heavy at times and will have your heart aching for Michelle, Cass and Denny. My arc copy of this novel has tea stains, food stains and sweat stains all  over because I simply could not put it down! Lily struggles with a burden of guilt after she accidentally killed her mother a decade before, and she longs for knowledge of the woman. In a tunnel nearby, Casey regrets coming to Survive the Night, the all-night underground rave in the New York City subway. I devoured it a the gym(that explains the sweat stains) and thumbed through it on my tea breaks at work and read while I was downing any meal.
However, these characters are some of the most alive, most vibrant characters I have ever read.
When the family's caretaker Rosaleen (Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson) is arrested after standing up to a group of violent white men, Lily seizes the opportunity to run off with Rosaleen and search for clues to her mother's life. Alone and lost in the dark, creepy tunnels, Casey doesn’t think Survive the Night could get any worse .
Motherly August (Queen Latifah) cultivates the state's most coveted honey, June (Alicia Keys) focuses on her music and on rebuffing the advances of an ardent suitor (Nate Parker), and childlike May (Sophie Okonedo) struggles to stay happy in the turbulent time.
But in a still-racist world where the Civil Rights Act has just been passed, the Boatwrights' home acts as a haven for Lily as she searches for information about her mother's past. Desperate for help, Casey and her friends find themselves running through the putrid subway system, searching for a way out. But every manhole is sealed shut, and every noise echoes eerily in the dark, reminding them they’re not alone.
