Heartside Bay #10 - Flirting with Danger product reviews

Love, life and everything in between. Midnight kisses and summer crushes, first dates and heartbreak - there's never a dull moment in Heartside Bay. This is the next not-to-be-missed instalment in the lives of Lila, Polly, Eve and Rhi.

Polly should be happy - shouldn't she? She has Ollie who she is crazy about, her fashion business is doing brilliantly, and she's just been on an amazing trip to the USA to visit her dad. But she can't help feeling that something is very wrong with her life. And it's a feeling that's only growing.

This is the tenth book in the series and probably the hardest one I have had to read so far. Usually I can read the book within 24 hours but this took a little over a week because it was not the happy go lucky kinda book I am used to.

Polly and Ollie fly to San Fran to spend time with her father and during the trip her self doubt esculates and full on depression takes over. She is questioning everything and everyone and even conterplates suicide. It was rather darker than I am used to, but I guess in reality a lot of people go through this. Seeing something and reading the wrong picture, beleiving everything you do is wrong, beleiving that everyone hates you and they would be better off without you - basically that feeling of not belonging.

Polly has always had that fear of not being worth it and this just blows up on her. I have never really enjoyed the 'Polly' centered books mainly because get tired about reading all her dark thoughts, but when you think about what kids have to go through now it probably is a subject that needs to be spoken about. It was nice to read the four of them talking about various times in there life when issues arose where they had no self control over it and then Polly realised it everyone has that niggling feeling its how you deal with it that matters.

I am thankful she is getting the help she desperately requires. Also it lets the reader know you need to discuss your problems not just keep them bottled up until you explode into a mess hiding under your desk. Cathy Cole really is a fantastic writer and the subject of depression really was handled well, just not really my cup of tea. This series is a must read for all teens as raises so many subjects which really are pivital today.

Product reviews for listing 6385: Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs the Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn -  Author: Dav Pilkey & Dan Santat

Product image for Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs the Stupid Stinkbugs from SaturnRicky's family is headed to Cousin Lucy's house for lunch. How boring. Ricky and his Robot are hoping to have a little fun with Lucy's pet Jurassic Jackrabbits, but when they get there Lucy makes them play princesses with her instead. What could be worse?

An invasion of Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn, that's what. Smelly Sergeant Stinkbug has arrived on Earth with a plan to kidnap its ruler, and Princess Lucy fits ... more...
