Going Underground by Susan Vaught

Del is a troubled boy... well he was, and three years later he is still paying for it.

Del works in a graveyard digging graves after school. He can't get jobs like most people can, or go to the college he wants, like most people his age. Del has a criminal record following him for the rest of his life.

It all started when he was 14. Del was a normal teenage boy playing baseball and hanging with friends. That all changed the night he and his friends were arrested by the police.

Now that is the story for Del to tell you. I can tell you this, Del's life was never and never will be the same again.

To find out Del's story and why his life has changed, you have to read Going Underground

I recommend this book to anyone 13 or older. This was a great book. However, because it does curse a little bit and the whole story of why Del is considered a criminal, this book is not appropriate for younger children.

Well, I must go and read another book,

Guinness World Records 2012

Wanna know a great way to start the new year? You should definitely read the Guinness World Records 2012!

This year's edition has all new, exciting and interesting records about people, animals, talents, sports and so much more.

It is very cool to read about different attempts people have made to set new world records, and about those who have succeeded in breaking them.

Some of the records you read in this book are unbelievable and crazy. Reading this book is a great way learn random and interesting fact.
(see page 142 for the largest pizza, page 85 for the heaviest living person and page 78-79 for the most tattooed man)

I enjoyed reading Guinness World Records 2012 a lot. I think anyone who is fascinated with facts, pictures, and CRAZY and UNBELIEVABLE records will love reading this book.

well I have to go read some more,

First Ripley's Museum

Have you ever wondered about where Ripley's Museum first started? Or Where Mr. Riply's first lived? Or even how he started his love for crazy facts and people?

This summer I went to the first Riply's Believe It or Not Museum in St. Augustine, Florida.
It was a lot of fun. I saw all different things, such as the tallest man, the fattest man in the military, the smallest car, biggest shoe size; a size 22!!!!!

I saw some pretty crazy things.... Believe It or Not!!

I think everyone should visit the Museum, if not in Florida, then in New York City, or anyone near you. It is an AMAZING experience and a really fun time for children and and adults alike.
