A Girls Best Friend

Reviewed by Tilly 10yr. old Book Reviewer and Sometimes Writer

A Girl's Best Friend is about a girl... who is you! Yes, the person who wrote this book wrote it about you! Also, you get to make your own decisions in the story and choose what happens next. So it's a book with more than 20 possible endings.
In this book you get 8 friends... (if you chose the right ending)
Emmy ~ A brave girl who loves swimming and  boating.
Isabel ~ A confident girl with a funky sense of style.
Amber ~ An animal lover and loyal friend.
Neely ~ A creative girl who loves dance, music and art.
Riley ~ A good sport on the field and off.
Paige ~ A nature lover who leads hikes an campus cleanups.
Logan ~ A super smart girl who is curious about everything.
Shelby ~ A kind of girl who is there for her friends and loves making new ones.

A Girl's Best Friend... well hopefully everyone knows what that is (here's a clue is it's a mans best friend too).
A Girl's Best Friend has a puppy in it. The puppy's name is Pepper and in this story you are intreserd in the Pepper (you work at a dog place). Pepper is more energetic than the other dogs all together. Pepper is a Husky. In this story you worry that he is in danger and you might have to break some rules to protect him - will you choose loyalty?

When my mum gave me this book, I was so excited, I jumped up and down. I've never read a 'choose your own adventure' book before and couldn't wait! I sat down straight away and read the story to the end. Now I can read it again and have different endings! It's not a long story, like a novel, but it was fun. I also like that the book has a nice hardcover.

I rate this book out of 5 paper dolls...

The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor is a book about a girl named Alice, who lives in Wonderland (Oh! I almost forgot, she isn't any ordinary girl, she's a princess!). But on her 7th birthday her aunt, Red, attacked the Queendom! In all the massacre, Red killed Alice's mum & dad and tried to kill Alice!
Luckily the Hatter got her safely to the pool of tears. She had been wishing for an adventure for her birthday, she certainly got what she wished for as she jumped into the pool of tears and came out to a whole new place called London. Meanwhile the Hatter was in a place called Paris. Not knowing were Alice was he searched the whole country for her and would search the hole world for her if he had to so she can fulfil her destiny and kill Red!
There are more problems - Alice is adopted and is told that what she says about Wonderland is nonsense, she finally believed her new family and forgot all about her aunt & Wonderland. Now she is 20 and going tho marry a prince! Will she remember who she is in time to go back and save Wonderland?
Sound slightly familiar? This story is like a reversal of Alice in Wonderland. But there are many differences - it's much darker. This excellent book is a book that was chosen by the book club I go to so I do have to thank them because otherwise I would have never read it!
This is a wonderful book and I give it out of 5 paper dolls :
This is a great book but a warning to my followers that are a bit squeamish this book has a lot of gore and is NOT a little kids book.
