Ohhhhh my gosh! Soooo good! I loved it. The action. The suspense. The humor. I loves it allll. Michael is WONDERFUL. He’s funny, real, and super A-MAZ-ING. Taylor isn’t shallow like I thought she’d be either. And the kid’s powers????? YES. YES. AND YES.  Rebooting brains? Awesome! When Michael made the decision about his mom and Wade?

Yes.

He did it.

Now they’re gonna find her.

Despite the fact that Nichelle is EVIL, her power is so cool. Like, awesomesauce! And when Michael zapped her? YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She had it coming and she was FLATTENED!!!

Then when he decided to dump her in the real world and Jack and Wade took her outside?

FABULOUS!

The Reality of a Teen Book Club

As some of you know my friends and I started a book club recently. We planned to have fairly serious discussions, ONLY discussing the book of the month. We even appointed a moderator! Well, we’re two months in and our meetings have become anything but formal. In fact, it’s more of a time to Rant and Rave over our favorite books and get on a caffeine high. Within these two meetings we’ve had some fairly freaky things happen, but due to time limits and more importantly my lack of inspiration, I’ll only share some of our experiences.

One of our main problems is losing someone or something. At our first meeting, we lost a member. One of our members got the right restaurant but the wrong location. This caused some frantic emailing in an attempt to figure out where she was, if she had a ride home, and most importantly if, she liked the book. The second meeting was just as exciting and definitely as chaotic. This time, we didn’t lose a person but a purse. At the restaurant, we sat at two tables inside and one outside. Then when we decided to visit the bookstore, we looked at classics, notebooks, children’s, teen’s, and finally sat down in the cafe. That’s when we figured out that the purse was missing. In a frenzy, we raced through the different aisles like we were being chased by a serial killer. Was it there? No. We figured that if it hadn’t been stolen then it had to be at the restaurant. So all we had to do was take a leisurely walk back to the restaurant, get the purse, and we’d be done, right? Wrong. When we checked to see what time it was we found that it was only eight minutes until our parents were supposed to pick us up. That meant that if we didn’t want to be stranded or use up any extra texts, we needed to move. So we took off speed walking towards the restaurant hoping to get back in time. Then we decided that we weren’t moving fast enough so we started jogging like we were training for the…anti-olympics. Anyway, we were running fast enough to look like freaks. Once we got there we had to check two of our tables, but we finally found the purse, yet the adventure was not over. We still had to get back in time to catch out parents. Yes, I am aware that sounds way too dramatic for what I’m describing, but I like how it sounds so shut up. So, we continued to run and look like joggers in jeans until we reached the bookstore. We were panting, or at least I was, but we had made it…five minutes early. Yep, we jogged, panicked, acted like we were being chased by lunatics, and worried that we might miss our ride, only to find we had plenty of time to spare. So this is the reality of our teen book club.

Like a Star by Britt Nicole-The Mark of the Dragonfly’s Song (Spoilers)

Purple: Piper’s life pre-Anna and the 401.

Red: Gee’s protection

Bright blue: Gee flying

Yellow: Gee’s eyes

Green: Gee and Piper’s love

Dark blue: Electricity engines

Been working overtime    (Piper works late at night)                                                                                 And gettin’ sick of these crazy games  (Going to the shelter seems like a routine or a game)
I’ll be a satellite   (Gee watching over the train and it’s passengers)
And wait for someone to enter my gaze   (Gee waiting for someone to try to harm the train) 

I see you like a star in the sky  (Gee flying high in the sky)     
And I love it   (As time goes on she feels safe flying with him and enjoys it)
Yeah, the light in your eyes   (Gee’s eyes when he gets angry or feels a lot of emotion)
And I wonder
When you’re looking in mine
Do you see them
Like a star in the sky

You got me falling for ya   (At first, they won’t admit to themselves that they like each other)
And I won’t stop ’til I hit the clouds   (He won’t stop until Piper and Anna are safe)
See I don’t wanna hide these feelings
Or even try to figure them out   (Piper tries to avoid her feelings often, Gee won’t admit to liking Piper)

Sparks flyin’ all around   (Trimble, the engine of the 401, and Piper’s work)
Electricity  (Anna’s body)
Dance with me, dance with me, dance with me  (They fall in love, flying is kinda of their dance)
Ten feet of the ground   (Gee taking off)
No gravity   (Gee flying)
Fly with me, fly with me   (Gee flying Piper and Anna to safety)
