in My Mailbox #22

by Jennifer Ziegler

Maggie Dempsey is tired of moving all over the country. Her parents are second-generation hippies who uproot her every year or so to move to a new city. When Maggie was younger, she thought it was fun and adventurous. Now that she's a teenager, she hates it. When she moved after her freshman year, she left behind good friends, a great school, and a real feeling of belonging. When she moved her sophomore year, she left behind a boyfriend, too. Now that they've moved to Austin, she knows better. She's not going to make friends. She's not going to fit in. Anything to prevent her from liking this new place and them from liking her. Only . . . things don't go exactly as planned.

The Boyfriend List (Ruby Oliver, #1)
by E. Lockhart

Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it's unusual, but give her a break—she's had a rough 10 days. In the past 10 days she:

lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list), 
lost her best friend (Kim), 
lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket), 
did something suspicious with a boy (#10), 
did something advanced with a boy (#15), 
had an argument with a boy (#14), 
drank her first beer (someone handed it to her), 
got caught by her mom (ag!), 
had a panic attack (scary),
lost a lacrosse game (she's the goalie), 
failed a math test (she'll make it up), 
hurt Meghan's feelings (even though they aren't really friends), 
became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch)
and had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom (who knows what was in the boys'!?!). 

But don't worry—Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists.


by Kelly Osbourne 

When you're little, you think your family is just the same as everybody else's. Doesn't everyone's mum plan secret exits for when things get tough? Surely all dads embarrass their daughters at their birthday parties? But as you get older, you begin to notice that what's normal to you is completely f***ed up to the outside world, and that sometimes you just can't explain that what other people think of as weird is actually all about love. Who is Kelly Osbourne? I'm still not totally sure. But I do know who I'm not, and I want to help other people make the right decisions with the difficult choices we all face when growing up. So I've gone out and got the best advice I can find from people I love, respect and always listen to. I've included Louis Walsh's advice on making it in the music industry, tips from Neil, my sought-after make-up artist at MAC and many others. And for when things get really serious I've gone to the organisations that really can help. This book isn't just about me, it's about you. So whatever yoiu're worried about, whatever you want to change, and whatever you want to shout about, me and my friends are here to help.
