Love this cd great soulful music that makes you feel good any day.
When I started reading these magnas I found that I loved them. From an artists point of view they have some of the most beautiful illstrations ever. The story is very moving to me also which to me complements the illstrations. So if you love a moving love story and beautiful illstrations this is a series for you.
If you are a fan of Downtwn Abbey this is a magna you will like. Emma in this volume has to leave the town she has grown to love because the mistress she worked for hass passed away. But Emma's heart is breaking because while working for her mistress she fell in love with a young man but a problem arises because they are from two very different classes. While on the train ride home Emma meets another maid who suggests she comes to work for her employer. So Emma is interviewed and hired by the head maid so to speak. So I really loved this book and I highly recommend it enjoy.
I know a lot of sweet valley fans have had mixed reactions to this book but if you look closely and retread any of the sweet valley books of the past you will see that Francine has written pop culture into her books. Yes the issues of the issues that all the characters in this book are not what we have grown up with but there are issues that are happening in our lives everyday as adults. I know this book is a little hard for some fans to read but if you truly read this book and you truly see what is happing in our country today you will see that in the first place Francine in her own way was writing history in her books. Now that some of the Sweet Vally High books have been published in e reader form you will see that. I feel that the book is hard to read at points but I now after rereading some Sweet Vally High books see that Francine is a historian of sorts and she has written how society has changed over the years.
When I first read the Outsiders I was to young to understand that it is a timeless piece of literature that spans not only decades but generations as relatable in every since of the word. Now that I am an adult if you read it you will seem themes that have spaned across the generations that are still happening now in junior high schools and high schools today. The biggest theme that is hit upon in the Outsiders that has not changed is the theme of cliques but back when S.E. Hinton wrote the book she referred to them as gangs and that is because back in the 60's there were only two groups of people but now in a new generation of young students there several but the term has not changed. I still to this day read this book because it is a great character study that shows that our counter has not changed but it has just grown and changed somewhat but not a lot.
