Book Review: John Paul 2 High: Catholic, Reluctantly
Name: John Paul 2 High: Catholic, Reluctantly Author: Christian M. Frank Brief summary: Allie Weaver is a fifteen year old who was just shot at in her public school. After that scare, her mom decides that it would be best if she went to a new Catholic highschool, John Paul 2 High. Before Allie goes there, there are only five students. And it's run by three of the students' parents. Grade/Age level: 13 and up Cautions: They mention the priest scandals briefly, mention sex briefly, divorce, an unwed mother. but all mentioned VERY briefly. Oh, and also, there was a school shooting. Nobody got shot, but someone was shot at. If you like this book, you might also like . . . The Fairy Tale Novels by Regina Doman Personal Opinion: I really loved this book! It's VERY Catholic, but only if you know it is and if you look for the Catholic stuff. After I finished reading it. I put it down, pondered it, and than picked it up to read it again!! I had my mom read it, and she loved it too! We're both impatiently waiting for the sequel. ;) The way that Frank portrays the characters... They might as well be yourself! or your cousin, or your enemy, or your best friend, or your sibling!! Frank made the characters so everyone could think, "Hey, that reminds of so and so!" For example, Celia reminded me of one of my best friends Emalee. Emalee is "emo" but only in the way she dresses and the music she listens to. But she goes out of her way to be friendly and is always SOOOOOOOOOO nice to everyone! Liz on the other hand, reminded me of my sister Sarah. :p One thing..... I wish there was a John Paul 2 High in MY area!! Amazing Job Regina Doman and the rest of the team!!!! Rating: 9/10
My Prince will come and till then, my heart is saved for him. Put this picture (or another one of Arwen) on your blog if you agree.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the Bella Colleen, the baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion. Amen

What is Love?
"Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy, it does not boast, It is not proud, It is not rude, It is not self-seeking, It is not easily angered, It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
"When we were little, we kept close to our mother in a dark alley or if dogs barked at us. Now, when we feel temptations of the flesh, we should run to the side of our Mother in Heaven, by realizing how she is to us, and by means of aspirations. She will defend us and lead us to the light."
My name is Katie. My friends and family mean the world to me. I would honestly do anything for them. I also know they'd do anything for me. I love to read, watch movies, listen to music, knit, crochet, text (hehehe), pray, and do lots of other stuff. I'm a devout Catholic and I LOVE GOD WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL! HE IS AMAZING! I'm also homeschooled... yeah. Feel free to tell people to read my blog, or to comment, or to email me. :)
