Taylor and Barrett are cousins but they come from completely different worlds. Taylor is the daughter of a high-profile marketing specialist and lives in a city where advertisements are everywhere. Barrett was raised by his uncle in rural isolation where they do everything the old-fashioned way. After a tragic accident, Barrett is forced to move in with family he’s never met in a world he’s never known. But an untouched mind could prove to be very helpful in advertisement researched and soon both cousins find themselves in a dangerous situation, betrayed by those they trusted most.
Leaving Simplicity is one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time. The idea of advertisements pretty much taking out our society in the near future is one that I find to be very realistic and scary at the same time. The cast of characters, from simple Barrett to tech savvy Taylor, were each incredibly unique and realistic. The world they lived in was so much like our but so different at the same time. There is no praise I can give that could explain how much I loved this book. Buy it, read it, love it. It will make you think.

The Little Black Book For Girlz is written by teens for teens on healthy sexuality. It’s full of information on subjects like Relationships, Periods, Sex, Birthcontrol, Pregnancy, and many others. Not only is it full of facts, it also contains real-life stories written by teens everyone can relate to.
The Little Black Book is raw and painfully honest. There’s so much more to our personal lives than what they teach us in Health and The Little Black book explains it more but instead of talking down on us, it’s coming from teens going through the same situations. It’s a great book and I recommend it to everyone but be warned – if you get embarrassed talking about these subjects, I probably wouldn’t read this in front of people.
