I Am Neurotic:(and so are you) by Lianna Kong

This is a nonfiction book about people and their little “quirks.”  It was really interesting to see what kinds of things people are bothered by (like how they can’t eat chocolate chip cookies unless they have exactly 12 chocolate chips in them!).  A funny and quick read!

I Am Ozzy by Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy Osbourne has really outdone himself with his new creative effort – his autobiography.  I am Ozzy is the story of one man’s struggles to escape his dead-end hometown, to make it big as a musician, and to overcome addictions and diseases.  Osbourne writes this all in a style that is at times moving an other times hilarious, in his own (often vulgar) words.  The book alternates between material that shows us the progression of Osborune’s life and humorous anecdotes, so the reader is kept interested even if there was a period in time where Osbourne wasn’t doing something interesting.  he also provides answers to the questions that burn in the minds of fans of his music and his reality show The Osbournes:  Why did he bite the head off o bat?  How long has Ozzy been married?  Why does he talk in such an unusual manner?  There are the answers readers think they know, and then there’s the real answer straight from the horse’s mouth, in I Am Ozzy

Welcome to My World by Johnny Weir

I thought that this book was very good considering this is Johnny Weir’s first book.  It is about his life as a figure skater and the challenges that go along with it.  Johnny had always been different but he found something that he loved, figure skating.

Heat By: Mike Lupica

I have read SO many great books that it is hard to say which book is the best. Heat is definitely one of the best books I have ever read!

Heat is about 2 Cuban brothers,who’s father and mother have passed, who are praying that they don’t get caught for living without a parent in the household. Carlos is turning 18 in late September, and as of right now, in August, him and his brother, Michael, have not been caught. Then life for Carlos and Michael starts going down-hill. One day, at Michael’s Little League baseball game, Justin (Justin the Jerk) decides to challenge Michael.  Justin is jealous of Michael’s pitch speed. Michael can throw just under 80mph and no other kid can throw that hard at that age. So, Justin asks Michael, “:How old are you?” Other coaches decide to send a letter of complaint to the Board of Directors who say,”We will not let you play until you show us a birth certificate.” The only Nproblem is… Michael’s father didn’t bring the birth certificate to the United States when they left Cuba.

Miles to go by Miley Cyrus

Miles to go is basically a book about all the important events in this actresses life. That actress is Miley Cyrus. It tells about her favorite embarrasing moments and some real touchy moments. Like, how her pappy died and bullying. Things that girls can relate to and know how she dealed with them.This book is about the real Miley Cyrus. Not how the media potrays her , but how it truly is for her. I give this book 5 stars and hope people will read it after looking at my review.
