Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
"Your Life, but Better" by Crystal Velasquez is a clever little book. It follows a twelve-year-old girl around one day at the mall with her friends. They are looking for a popular girl from school who is giving away tickets to the best birthday party of the year. The trick is that, once the youngsters find the girl, they have to compete for the coveted tickets, which are compared to the golden tickets of Charlie in the Chocolate Factory (which just so happens to be the theme of the party). Along the way, the narrator--which is supposed to be the reader--has a series of unexpected events happen to her.

What's unique about this book is that the reader makes the story. At the end of each chapter, there is a quiz. Readers take it, tally up their points, and, depending on what their results are, they either proceed to one chapter or another. The book progresses in this way so the story unfolds in a most realistic way in accordance with how the reader would act. In this fashion, multiple stories and events unfold in different ways that make this book great to read over and over.
