Love*com is adorable, funny and most of all the characters are so believable. They don't have crazy family issues or unbelievable situations.

Prisoners in the Palace

by Michaela MacColl
YA MacColl M
367 p. 2010 Historical Fiction
Grade: B

When Liza's parents die, she becomes lady's maid to Queen Victoria in this lively novel, rich with historical detail and palace intrigue. Victoria is a vivid character, as is Will, the love interest, and the mysterious Inside Boy. The pacing drags in a few spots, but this is well made up for by the well-researched fun. Recommended to any fan of historical fiction!

Unwind the Movie!

Attention TLC members & other teen lit lovers:

The fascinating book Unwind by Mr. Neal Shusterman is going to be made into a film! No news yet on casting or an actual release date. According to, it's set to come out in 2012.

Any suggestions about who could play Connor? How about Risa? My personal picks? Justin Bieber and Dakota Fanning. Just kidding! ;)

If you haven't yet had the chance to read this book, now's the time. Stop by the library and pick up a copy.
