Well me and my family and a friend took a mini-before-school-vacation to Biloxi. HERE ARE SOME PICTURES! It was wicked awesome and I had a good time--glad I got to do it before school started.

The Truth About Forever

The Truth About Forever is a favorite book of mine written by Sarah Dessen. I LOOOVE this book, so i'm going to talk to you about it! (Don't continue reading if you don't want me to spoil the book for you).

Okay, so this book centers around 17-year-old Macy Queen. Macy lives alone with her mother after the death of her father about a year ago, and her older sister, Caroline, heads off to college. Macy's mom owns a housing business and is very centered around her work. She keeps trying to drive Macy to perfection, wanting her to be the daughter she wants: good grades in school, focused on the SATs, getting into a good college, etc. Macy's boyfriend, Jason, leaves at the beginning of the summer to go off to "Brain Camp". One night Ms. Queen is hosting a party at her house and that's when Macy first meets the Wish Catering Crew: Delia (the pregnant woman at the time), Kristy, Monica, Bert....and Wes.

Soon Macy finds herself in a whole new word with these people: she starts staying out late, hanging out with them more often, and finds herself falling for Wes. Her mother finds out about her second life and to say the least, isn't very happy about it. Then Caroline comes down to visit and talks about how she's trying to renovate the old beach house their father had years ago.

OKAY...i'm not going to say anymore because I don't want to give the entire story away. The point is: it's an excellent of my favorites! A complete "must read" so go check it out!

Favorite Author: Sarah Dessen

Hey everyone! So today I thought i'd just take the time to talk to you about my favorite author of the moment right now: Sarah Dessen. If you love to read (like me) and you're a teenage girl, I strongly suggest that you try out some of her books! I've read five books by her right now, and i'm in love with all of them. Her new book Along for the Ride just came out this month and I can't wait to get it. All of her stories are so sweet...I definintly think you should check them out. The books I have by her are:

1.) Someone Like You
2.) The Truth About Forever
3.) Lock and Key
4.) Keeping the Moon &
5.) That Summer

I plan on getting the rest of her books, as well. (hopefully soon.) Just Listen, I heard was also a really popular book of hers and I also want to get Along for the Ride, Dreamland, and This Lullaby. The Truth About Forever is probably my absolute favorite so far so i'm going to go ahead and probably write a book review on that one. Stay tuned! (Although be cautious because I don't want to give away any spoilers)!

Rachel is bored

Okay, so right now it's exactly 4:29 pm on Sunday, May 9, 2009. =) Just thought i'd get those facts straight. And since I pretty much have nothing to do in my life right now, I think i'll tell ya'll about my day!
Soo today some of my family got together for lunch at Olive Garden and we had a great time. Afterwards, me and my cousins and aunt went shopping! We went to Dicks Sporting Goods, some athletic store (we were shopping for my guy cousin), some shoe store, and then me and my sister and girl cousin dragged my two guy cousins into Ulta. It was GREAT! So right now I think I might consider putting my bathing suit on and going outside and lay in the sun and be stupid....maybe i'll swim. I don't know!

HAPPY SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
