It's Friday Time#2 Letture in lingua

Buon Venerdì amici miei!
Comicio con lo scusarmi per l'assenza di questi ultimi dieci giorni, ma sono stata davvero super impegnata, per non parlare poi della matematica: il mio grande amore mi ha tradito e mi sono dovuta mettere a studiare ben benino per recuperare eheh.. Dato che It's Friday Time è rimasta inutilizzata da Gennaio, ho deciso di rispolverarla e parlarvi dei libri in lingua che ultimamente mi hanno incuriosito!



From the book to the movie: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, di Jesse Andrews

Pagine: 295
Editore:  Amulet Books
Trama: 
Greg Gaines is the last master of high school espionage, able to disappear at will into any social environment. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time making movies, their own incomprehensible versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics.Until Greg’s mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel.Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.And all at once Greg must abandon invisibility and stand in the spotlight.


 The end of our World: This is not a test, di




It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

The infiltrator: Babe in Boyland, di


Dial
Trama:  
When high school junior Natalie-or Dr. Aphrodite, as she calls herself when writing the relationship column for her school paper-is accused of knowing nothing about guys and giving girls bad relationship advice, she decides to investigate what guys really think and want. But the guys in her class won't give her straight or serious answers. The only solution? Disguising herself as a guy and spending a week at Underwood Academy, the private all-boy boarding school in town. There she learns a lot about guys and girls in ways she never expected-especially when she falls for her dreamy roommate, Emilio. How can she show him she likes him without blowing her cover?




Friday cover time!

L'investigatore si alzò. - Signor Ratchett, voglia scusarmi se vengo a un argomento personale; ma vede, non posso accettare la sua proposta perchè la sua faccia non mi piace.
