Howl is a really good book. The story moves fast. Seeing how Sophie has to make decisions is interesting. She has so much to go through. Everything makes it seem as if she's loosing control. She takes a huge risk with her love life. She loses family. But yet, she holds onto herself. I loved the ending. Even though it had its sad moments, Sophie finally takes control of everything. She comes through and protects her family. Just a warning, it does get a little gory, but nothing too bad. I had no problem with it. I say check it out.
The Rock Star's Daughter is a book I enjoyed from beginning to end. Taylor's story is told so well. It's one of those books you become emotionally involved with. Taylor is dealing with so much, and you feel sorry for her at times. But she comes across as a girl you know will pull through. She is so independent, but like everyone else, she just needs someone to help her deal with everything, and she seems to find that in Jake. I liked how these two interacted, and I'm not going to lie, I was hoping it would have worked out. The Rock Star's Daughter is part of the Treadwell Academy series, so I hope we get to see more of Taylor. I liked reading this story, and it was easy to get through. So, I say check it out :)
