Hi everyone! It's finally winter break :) The papers, the homework, the stress is all gone..for now at least. It's been a long semester, I'm definitely planning on doing things differently and prioritizing more efficiently next semester. It's going to be a busy break with my sister getting married on New Years and lots of family time, but I've FINALLY been able to just relax and read, read, and read some more :) I have some great things planned for the blog..upcoming reviews of The View from the Top by Hillary Frank, Party by Tom Leeven, Sea by Heidi King and more! AND my blog anniversary is creeping up! Any contest ideas? Oh and happy holidays everyone <3

The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson
Release date: January 1st, 2011
Summary: (taken from Goodreads)
"Our philosophy is simple: Promote a latte-colored world!" — from the Latte Rebellion Manifesto When high school senior Asha Jamison gets called a "towel head" at a pool party, the racist insult gives Asha and her best friend Carey a great money-making idea for a post-graduation trip. They'll sell T-shirts promoting the Latte Rebellion, a club that raises awareness of mixed-race students. Seemingly overnight, their "cause" goes viral and the T-shirts become a nationwide fad. As new chapters spring up from coast to coast, Asha realizes that her simple marketing plan has taken on a life of its own-and it's starting to ruin hers. Asha's once-stellar grades begin to slip, threatening her Ivy League dreams, and her friendship with Carey is hanging by a thread. And when the peaceful underground movement turns militant, Asha's school launches a disciplinary hearing.Facing expulsion, Asha must decide how much she's willing to risk for something she truly believes in.
I love finding those occasional reads that really relate to me. I love the message and idea this book comes across. I really can't wait to get my hands on this one! :)
I'm a seventeen year old Muslim girl living in Kentucky. Coming from a huge family, I tend to be a bit shy, but never afraid to speak my mind. Growing up without a TV in the house, I willingly turned to books. Ever since I've been a proud book-aholic. Since I love reading I decided to write a review on every book I read (mostly YA fiction) from here on out to share my thoughts and opinions. I love comments and am open to any book suggestions :)
