  30. Lisa Schroeder- I like doing VLOGs and I will do more. But it takes more time than written reviews. You can expect more VLOGs from me. I just bought myself a good camcorder!

    Jessica Burkhart: I’m glad you liked it!

    Deen: Hehe, it wasn’t hard. iMovie does everything for you! You should try it out.

    jama: Stick around and you’ll see more VLOGs coming up.

    Brooke: Glad you liked it!

    Kporterbooks: Good luck!

    Leisa: Thanks!

    justJoan: I know… and the thing is that EVERY chapter is that impacting. Come back and tell me what you thought of the book after you’re done reading!

    Lauren: Aww, thanks. I had trouble picking out the song, making it go with the intro, and everything. I wanted it to be perfect. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I hope you love the book!

    Mandy: Haha! Hi Mandy. Glad you travel from likeomgteensread.com to other book blogs. Thanks for the compliment.

    Donna: Thank you. 🙂

    Alessandra: If you liked the excerpt you’ll like the whole book from beginning to end.

    Shalonda: I’m glad you like my VLOGs! I don’t know about the other half you said. I have two half-siblings and I love them with all my heart. When you read the book you’ll understand Alice’s problem.

    Karen Kincy: Thanks and good luck!

    Arya Darcy: Thanks! It is truly awesome. Good luck!

    Etewok: Haha! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I know when I get excited I squeal at everything! Thanks!

    Emily Marshall: I’m glad you liked the VLOG! By the way, I live in South Florida… so it’s like 70 degrees right now in the morning… probably 80 by the end of the day. You don’t know how jealous I am that it doesn’t get colder and I can’t see snow like you probably can.

    Katie: Thanks and I hope you like it!

    Megan: I’m glad you enjoyed watching me talk, hehe. Thanks.

    Pam Calvert: I hope you enjoy it (I know I did)!
