Sandy was somewhat developed, but it didn’t feel like Sarah was developed well. Laurne is more than willing to tackle difficult topics and cut right to the heart of the matter. This was a purchase for my pre-teen daughter who is an avid reader.
Bliss, by Lauren Myracle is the book that I was reading and the book is about a fourteen year old girl named Bliss. The facts of the Manson murders and aluren racial discrimination added in the book set the time of which the novel took place and made the story more enjoyable.
One of Bliss’ new friends hears voices and it turns out to be a vengeful ghost that lives in the school and tries to take over girls so that she can be “re-incarnated. This book really had a lot to say about society and people in general.

Because myradle was so much going on, it was hard to connect with any one character. Oct 01, Shelley rated it it was amazing.

Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Jul 20, Jessica rated it liked it. The ghost story feels somewhat rushed at the end, though I wouldn’t say that it’s predictable. To me, that says that people shouldn’t reach out to those who are different, because they’ll end up being just as crazy as we think they are in our preconceived notions. As Bliss settles into a “normal” teen life, she begins to notice something strange at Crestview, an ominous feeling and a wicked voice that hangs around one building in particular.
The writing flowed well. Plot threads from early on in the book, like a mysterious warning from a fellow commune dweller who has visions of the future, are completely forgotten by the end. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I wish the author had kept going. Nov 12, Bethany rated it liked it Shelves: I found that to be such a huge let-down. I was not expecting this at all when I began this book, and this book alone ensures Lauren Myracle is, for the time being, on my radar.
I just had such a hard time figuring this book out, and I’m also finding it difficult to articulate my feelings about it. Bliss becomes frightened when she realizes that Sandy does, in fact, intend to use her in some kind of ritualistic ceremony. I probably will, because I’m convinced I was a cat in a previous life and curiosity killed me. When I read the jacket, I was thinking it would be reminiscent of the ‘s horror films that I loved, but boy was I ever wrong. Aug 24, Mary rated it did not like it Shelves: On one hand, it was a very interesting portrayal of life during the early seventies.
The plot moves at a brisk pace; I never felt bored or uninterested.

Oops, I mean everyone’s crazy. Myracle’s end notes about that event might even prompt some to read Bugliosi’s account. There are some truly uncomfortable and hair raising moments in the story. It ended too suddenly and did leave some questions unanswered.
Bliss (Crestview Academy, #1) by Lauren Myracle
She mentioned them fleetingly throughout the novel. I did think that the book tried to cover a bit too much. This was, however, very well written. Common Sense is a nonprofit organization. Her grandmother enrolls her at Crestview Academy, an elite school that used to be a convent, which makes her both nervous and excited. I had many times that I found I had to put the book down for a combination of creepy characters, frustration with the attitudes of the time period, and just sheer scary situations.
