The famous Chinese novel about the concubines living in the Forbidden City. You can feel their struggle over life, love, power in spite of themselves. No one is the winner, even the one that survived with the sovereign rights of the palace.

Review
Social awareness of the turn of 19th century. The main at the top of the parents' list is to find a matches for their daughters to get married to and settle down with. In this story Elizabeth Bennett is one to be more critical especially of her view of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. A good read for high school studnets who want a good read!

Title
Gallagher Girl Series
Author
Ally Carter
Review
Cam the Chameleon is a spy in training. She attends a secret school just for the brightest and most cunning girls where the girls train to become the best spies possible. The Gallagher Girl series starts at the beginning of her school year sophomore year and continues on to the final days as a student. There is adventure, trying to solve the mysteries of her family and school, romance, falling for the most dangerous boys possible, and anything spy related, in other words danger and trouble. It’s a long story that’s exciting and interesting the whole time. It’s still a story I like to return to when I find that I don’t have anything else to read (and if I have time to spare).
