In My Mailbox #2

So. Erstmal eine kleine Entschuldigung, dass ihr so lange nicht mehr von mir gehört habt. Ich bin ein bisschen im Stress wegen der Abiturvorbereitung, nicht auf das Abitur selbst, das habe ich schon geschrieben, sondern alles drumherum. Das wird sich auch so schnell nicht ändern.

So. Ich habe meinen Mayersche-Gutschein eingelöst und folgendes dafür ausgesucht:

Maureen Johnson - 13 Little Blue Envelopes

Inhalt ( When Ginny receives thirteen little blue envelopes and instructions to buy a plane ticket to London, she knows something exciting is going to happen. What Ginny doesn't know is that she will have the adventure of her life and it will change her in more ways than one. Life and love are waiting for her across the Atlantic, and the thirteen little blue envelopes are the key to finding them in this funny, romantic, heartbreaking novel.

Jodi Picoult - My Sister's Keeper

Inhalt ( Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate -- a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister -- and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. 

Kristen Tracy - Lost It

Inhalt ( 
What would you do......if your best friend were plotting the annihilation of a small, furry neighborhood poodle? Or if your parents up and moved to an Outward Bound-type survival camp in the middle of the desert? How about if your grandmother bought you new bras and underwear -- and you actually thought they were a teensy bit, umm, sexy?
Most people would not react well.
Tess Whistle's junior year of high school is off to a fairly bizarre start. One might even say her life is spiraling out of control. But with her sense of humor firmly intact and her first real boyfriend on her arm, Tess is dealing with the ridiculous twists quite well, thankyouverymuch.
Just wait until her shoes explode.
