5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! This is an AMAZING book! 5 Stars All the Way!, 11 Jun 2003
This review is from: Born Confused (Hardcover)
This book is the best I have read in a really long time. It's about an Indian girl named Dimple Lala whos parents want her to like a guy named Karsh. However, she doesn't like him at all, at least not at first, until her best friend Gwyen starts to go out with him. This book isn't just about stuff like that, it also includes Kavira and Sabina, Kavita being Dimiple's cousin...and something else, can't give anything away! Also it has Zara, a drag queen. I don't want to give anything away but this is such a good book! It really makes me think about life differently, like, live every day like its your last. It is a really one-of-a kind book and you should SO read it! I really reccomend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute and classic!, 21 May 2003
This book is really cute, and easy for small kids to understand. It is about the lowercase letters of the alphabet who have a race up a coconut tree and then they fall (chicka chicka boom boom!!! and they all fall down) and their "parents" (the uppercase lettesr) come to their rescue and heal their wounds from the fall. The illustrations are CHARMING and the text, as i said before, is simple yet cute and classic. I read this book when I was really little and i remember loving it :-) I can still remember some of it's lyrics. A MUST READ FOR YOUNG KIDS!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favourite Book!!, 25 Feb 2003
This review is from: House of the Scorpion (Paperback)
Wow! This book was fascinating and gripping. The plot basically is circling around Matt, who is the clone of El Patron. Set in a land called Opuim, where drug traders roam free, this book includes a lot of different types of book; it has a bit of romance (with Maria), and it is also action adventuary at places. Another thing that makes this book great is there is an addition of a character that you don't know if it's bad or good: El Patron! The main protaginasts are Matt, Tim Lan, and Celia. Matt is threatned by a host of characters including eejits (zombies), Tom(the main antagonist a.k.a the bad guy), Felicaia (who at first is very meek and boring but then...) and Mr MacGregor (another drug lord like El Patron). But all in all, this was a really great read and it left me thinking long after I read it.
