Messenger by Lois Lowry

The last of her 'trilogy' that started with The Giver.

Jonah from The Giver is now the head of a new society that welcomes everyone. But things are changing, the villagers are becoming restless and less inclined to accept new people. Does it have to do with the new trading? And what's happening to the forest? Only Matty, a young boy with incredible healing powers, can solve the mystery.

Really interesting look at how companies are marketing to teens by using them as advertisers.

Chick lit where the main character has small boobs and just got dumped when she expected a proposal. Works in NYC. Moves in with guy who later becomes boyfriend, of course.

Light, very forgettable
