Figment - Write Yourself In



Hey Figs
We love horoscopes. We were feeling in tune with the planets today, so we came up with one of our own.
 
Aries: A reader's biggest threat isn't back-stabbers, it's spine-breakers. Today, you should branch out; go to a new library. That book that you decided not to get? Yeah, that one. It's an amazing book and you'll never know. 
 
Oh, wait. THAT book? No, that one was terrible.

From The Figment Review

Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler

reviewed by Sydnee Thompson

 

At Winton School, Gabriella "Gabby" Gardiner is a toad among the offspring of the wealthy and influential. Her family isn't rich (although they desperately want to be), and the BMW in Gabby's driveway, as well as the designer clothes her mother religiously wears, are all flimsy attempts to mask her family's utter regularity.

 

That all changes, however, when Gabby's mom gives her a massive makeover over the summer-transforming regular old Gabby into a tanned, slim blonde that even Billy Nash (resident bad boy and Gabby's biggest crush) can't help but notice. They start dating and Gabby's life is perfect.

 

Well, at least until she gets drunk out of her mind at a party, steals Billy's car, and crashes it into a tree.

 

Where it Began by Ann Redisch Stampler details Gabby's struggle to remember what happened the night of her near-fatal crash. She wakes up in a field, alone, next to the shattered remains of Billy's midnight blue BMW with no recollection of how she got there.

Hunger Games Actress Chats with Figment

Jackie Emerson plays the sneaky Foxface in The Hunger Games movie. She may be a big time actress, but she took time to chat with us about our favorite pastime: reading!

 

Have you every lied about having read a book to impress someone? (If yes, what was the book and why?) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. "If people ask, I just say 'I've started that book . . . '"

 

What are your five Desert Island books? Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling ("I can't pick just one!"), Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins ("I've read it so many times!"), A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle ("I love to have that with me"), a survival cookbook, and a raft-building book ("I'd need something to teach me how to survive!")

 

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? Who? "Duh, who hasn't?! Percy Jackson----he's such a noble guy. And Neville Longbottom----in the seventh Harry Potter book he is epic."
