"Kissing Snowflakes" is a cute tale of 15 year-old Samantha and her winter break vacation to the Vermont Inn. "Winter break is supposed to be all about romance, but Samantha is stuck spending hers in a Vermont Inn with her dad, brother, and impossibly perfect new stepmom". This is not exactly what Sam pictures to be a romantic vacation, that is until she meets Drew. When Sam decides to venture out to a skiing class, she meets her beautiful blonde ski instructor. After Drew shows her around the slopes and how to kiss, she feels that this vacation could not get any better. That is, until Eric, the inn owner's son, tells Sam how much of a player Drew is. Could this be true? After getting snowed in the lodge, Sam realizes how much of a jerk Drew really is and finds out how great of a person Eric is.
Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451" is one of the most influential books of our time. Ray Bradbury predicts a controlled society, where everyone simply just wants to be happy. In this society, books are illegal, and fireman are hired to burn these banned books. The main character, Guy Montag, is one of these firemen. He starts with books being the culprit, but as the book goes on he realizes that there is a need for reform in the society. His point of view changes when he meets a 17 year-old girl, Clarrise. Clarrise helps Montag open his eyes and realize the meaning of books. He realizes that it is time for a change, and that is just what he will do.
The book has great suspense and is very engrossing. The book shows us the fate of censorship. That we must start thinking and talking about things that matter, so that we can remember them for generations to come. That we must constantly battle with what is right and what is wrong. The book is great because it is realistic of something that could happen in the future. It is a book the everyone should read and discuss. I recommend this book to anyone up for an enlightening read that will impact the way they think about books forever. Someone that likes a little bit of suspense and mystery. If you like a book that keeps you turning the pages and that will draw you in, I recommend you read this book. You will not regret it!
