Jennifer Lynn Barnes wrote GOLDEN when she was only nineteen, but you can't tell that by reading this book. It doesn't seem like a teenager wrote it (not that all teenagers are poor writers, but most think they're method better than they actually are), but an experienced author. In the novel, Lissy James' family moves to California from Oklahoma. Huge deal. Lots of people move. Lissy's move, however, is a small ere are two major dramas she has to deal with in her life. One is the typical teen-movie sort of high school thing: everyone in her high school is separated into two groups. Goldens are the famous ones, Nons are everyone else. She's got to understand that and decide which side she falls e may not have much of a choice, though, if her Aura Vision gets in the method of things. In her family, the women have powers to see things differently from most people, and Lissy can see people's auras. If that's not freaky enough, her powers are expanding so that she can see more, even the connections between people. Possibly, she thinks, the fault of her grandmother.Every part of this book is great. The characters are interesting (with method more to them than meets the eye, which is nice, not to have everything right at the surface). The plot as well. Perhaps teenagers in an ordinary globe with magical powers are becoming rather common in young adult literature, but this book is one of the better ones of that type. Anyway, it's a amazing thing to write about. Popular, and you can usually obtain a amazing story out of it. This author sure did!In this story, there's evil. There's magic. There's the famous crowd vs the losers. Even a tip of romance. Basically, take elements from lots of famous teen books, place them together, and you have a amazing book: GOLDEN. Not only is it a fabulous first novel, but it's written by a brilliant fresh author. I'm certainly looking forward to reading Jennifer Lynn Barnes' next book!Reviewed by: Jocelyn Pearce
GOLDEN tells the story of Lissy James, a fifteen-year-old who has just moved from California to Oklahoma. At her fresh highschool, the populars are the Goldens and everyone else is a Non, and Lissy doesn't wish to be considered a freak. To complicate matters, Lissy has the Sight: she sees auras, colourful clouds surrounding people that reflect their moods. Unfortunately, Lissy is certain that there is evil in the school and that it is up to her to end e final confrontation of the book seemed a small rushed and some things remained unexplained or aren't explained very clearly. The plot also seems like it relies on coincidence and luck a small too often. Occasionally the book seems to drag on a little. However, what created this book shine was Lissy's character. Lissy was so realistic, and I really enjoyed her sarcasm and her comments about the "backwardness" of Oklahoma. Lissy is one of the first characters that I can remember reading about that actually seems like a true teen, like a person I could know. The supporting characters, too, were fairly well done, though none came close to reaching Lissy's character.Overall, this was a very amazing first novel. Considering that Barnes wrote it at the age of nineteen only makes this book even more impressive, despite its faults. Barnes is definitely a amazing writer, though the plot could do with some work. I look forward to reading Barne's next work TATTOO and strongly recommend GOLDENto teens who have fun stories of the supernatural or even the primary new-girl-at-school story.
Lissy James comes from a long line of ladies who possess the Sight, a supernatural sense or ability of some kind. She can see people's auras, with various shades indicating various personalities - and amazing or poor intentions. The women in her family - especially her younger sister Lexie, who has yet to acquire a Sight of her own - think she should be proud of her Aura Vision and hone her skill. Lissy would rather not broadcast her bonus to her fore her family moved, Lissy told herself that Oklahoma wouldn't be the same as California, but she had no idea how various it would truly be. At her fresh school, the famous crowd decides who is hot (or, as they say, Golden) and who is not (Non). Lissy watches as the famous girls work their charms on the boys and realizes something out of the ordinary is going on. Before she knows it, she's swept up in a power struggle not only between social classes but between amazing and nnifer Lynn Barnes' debut novel is sure to appeal to fans of modern-day supernatural stories set in high school. With realistic dialogue, a amazing amount of twists and turns, and a rainbow of colors, the auras and characters of Golden shine.
When Lissy James moves from California to Oklahoma, she expects her fresh home life to be exceedingly boring. After all, what is even in Oklahoma? When she gets to Emory High, however, she realizes it is going to be anything but boring. The social structure -- Goldens vs. Nons, is both extremely prominent and hard to understand. Lissy is even more worried about Emory High discovering her Aura Vision, which is growing stronger all the time and sure to label her as a freak and a Non for life. The more time she spends there the more she realizes that the may not be the only one with "powers" and that not even her aura vision can support her know at all times who is amazing and who is not. Readers will cheer for Lissy as she wars evil, some in the form of her school's alpha female, some much more dangerous. This new-girl tale has far too a lot of supernatural elements to be completely familiar, yet girls everywhere will relate, and the characters are realistic enough that you may begin to wonder when you'll keep your powers.
I created the mistake of picking up this book while in the middle of reading a couple of others, because as soon as I opened it up to the first page I couldn't place it down. It has a witty first-person narration that engulfs you in the story and makes you instantly like the main character, Lissy. She is simple to relate to, faced with typical teenage drama even though her power to see auras is anything but typical. It is fascinating to see the other characters described by their auras; it gives us a better sense of who they are and what they are feeling even though, because of the first-person viewpoint, we are never privy to their thoughts. Lissy isn't the only hero with a psychic ability of some sort, and the method that weaves with the plot makes this an engrossing read and a special addition to the YA paranormal genre. In the end I was satisfyed, but left wanting to read more about Lissy and the other characters who are just as endearing and entertaining. If you're looking for a fast read with a new blend of humor, fantasy, and suspense, then Golden is a must.
This book was beautiful amazing overall. I actually read this years after it came out, after reading some of Barnes's other books. Unfortunately, her later books were all better than Golden, so for me Golden didn't seem as good. However, it was still a fun and refreshing story. The premise was great, very original and interesting. The plot was decent. It was a small hard to obtain into first, but after that I couldn't place the book down. One of my favorite elements in a story is suspense, and Barnes executed that perfectly. The characters were okay. I liked Lilah and Lexie, but Lissy, the main character, was a small flat. As a reader I didn't really obtain a amazing sense of her character.When you look at the whole story, though, this book is a promising debut for an author. Jennifer Lynn Barnes has potential as a writer, improving her writing in her later books. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light, fun, and refreshing page-turner with a paranormal element. I would also recommend Barnes's other books.
GOLDEN tells the story of Lissy James, who has just moved from California to Oklahoma and struggles with the unexpected social hierarchy of Goldens vs Nons at her fresh high school. To create matters more complicated, Lissy's also dealing with ever-growing Aura Vision, which is sure to brand her a freak, an uber-popular cousin who seems bent on making Lissy's life miserable, and a fresh teacher who may or may not be evil. Barnes does a amazing job of blending the supernatural and real-world elements of the story in a natural and meaningful way. She wrote this novel as a teenager, which may be why the drama of the high school globe rings more real than in most novels with related settings. Also, unlike most young adult authors, Barnes doesn't seem to think that teenagers are completely stupid, shallow, and self-obsessed. Her characters have more to them than meets the eye, and they don't fall prey to the disease a lot of young adult characters do in which they describe every aspect of their designer wardrobes in excruciating detail. The characters are smart, and the contrast between Lissy's snarky, sarcastic inner thoughts and her somewhat more meek outward demeanor is very relatable.
GOLDEN, the debut novel by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, centers around the story of Lissy, a middle-of-the-road teenager with just one unique characteristic: Her ability to see auras.When Lissy moves from California to Oklahoma, her bonus of Sight starts to go all crazy, and she has to learn to deal, along with navigating an insane social ladder at the fresh is book is fun, intriguing, and just won't allow go. I LOVE the fantasy element, even though I dont usually read fantasy/paranormals...it works SO well in this novel that you believe every page of it. You also never see the end coming-- and by the time it does, you want the sequel was already ve stars for Jennifer Lynn Barne's debut, GOLDEN

I chose this book because i like sports and gymnastics. It gives the reader the opportunity to experience some of the live of a young aspiring athlete. This optimistic view of Gabby Douglas's live glossed over the surface of the physical exhaustion and sometimes pain that goes with competitive sports. It doesn't mention the number of times that Gabby hit the floor trying to master a move. it does focus on the highlights of her life and the unbelievable couple that took her into thier home so she could train with Chou. It is a amazing read.
My daughter read this for a school project. She loved the book. It was an simple read and she found it to be very encouraging. Highly recommend. They accidentally sent me two books and Amazon and their amazing customer service refunded me for the other book. 😄
Apparently this is a must for Gabby fans, as it was requested by a young family member for christmas. It's not very long, but it seems aimed at elementary school students. (ages 7-10, maybe?) Anyways, I skimmed through it and it seemed like a amazing inspirational story for youngsters. Arrived promptly.
My grand daughter is a gymnast and loves to watch and read about the Olympic Gymnastics Stars! Her favorite is Gabby Doughlas so when I saw this book I knew I had to buy it. She doesn't really like to read, but she read this book cover to cover in no time flat!
Amazing book! Amazing quality! I have to read it alongside my 7 year old as there are some huge words that she's not quite ready for yet. But she loves the pictures and most of the content so far (on Chapter 4)
I bought this book for my ten year old daughter to read for a school biography book report. She is an aspiring Olympic Gymnast (currently competitive level 8) and I thought this book would be a amazing read for her. She really enjoyed reading this.
While this book is not a scholarly treatise on the history and culture of China, it does provide a solid introduction for students or those interested in an overview of Chinese civilization. It begins with the creation myths of ancient China, Paleolithic and Neolithic cultures, and archaeological discoveries. There is a discussion of the Shang and Zhou Dynasties and their rich cultural heritage. Five centuries of decentralization followed before the warlords emerged in a constant struggle for dominance. When the Han Dynasty gained power, they consolidated the best features of previous rulers which led to a golden age for the Chinese people and the emergence of the Silk Street trade. Fresh inventions like paper and ship rudders led to technological advances. Rulers began to rely less on religion and gradually the lords under them who formerly owned much of the land diminished in ere is a discussion of Chinese folk religion as well as more established religions like Confucianism and metaphysical thought. The Chinese used paper, melted iron ore, and made steel. They learned how to use the water wheel and invented the gear: the Chinese learned to pump water through pipes for irrigation.A timeline of Chinese history is added, but I believe it would have been more effective if written as a horizontal graphic. The bibliography is not a list of sources but a recommendation of other books in the Captivating History is book is entertaining and informative for readers age ten and older. Teachers and homeschool parents might consider it a worthwhile introduction to Chinese history and culture.

I was beautiful sure this book, with so few pages and huge typeface, would be skimpy, but it manages to undershoot even those low expectations. You can do better with a Google search.
my first book on the subject, i knew next to nothing. well written, and at the end I have got a marvelous picture of the begin of China
Captivating History has done it again! Are you searching for info on the Shang Dynasty? You’ll search it here. Have you ever wondered whether the mysterious Xia Dynasty is history or myth? “Chapter 1” delves headfirst into this debate. Is the Warring States Period and the rise of the Xin Dynasty more your style? Don’t worry. It’s covered here. Are you an aficionado of the Han Dynasty? Great! This is where this work really excels! Are you intrigued by the amazing Chinese philosophies, inventions, innovations, and more? I am sure you will not be surprised to hear that they are revealed. Are you more interested in the daily lives of the Chinese people and how the era covered in this work helped set the scene for modern Chinese culture and still resonates with the modern Chinese? Look no further! Better yet, read this first. Then, move on to works that delve into more depth into whatever truly catches your interest. In closing, I would like to thank the Captivating History squad for having the courage to publish such works that actively uncover truths that sometimes challenge our preconceived notions of civilization.
I thought the book was very amazing I was always interested in China, but most of my knowledge was from the Manchu Dynasty to modern times. This book covers a lot of early history of China and I learned a lot, there is a lot of history to cover and this book does a decent job doing so, it does not go into a lot amazing detail but does cover a lot of the necessary parts and gives the reader an idea of what life was like for the ancient Chinese. The Chinese is a special culture and developed along the same lines as the Europeans did but without any contact, the Chinese were able to develop a lot of of the same things the Europeans did and some times before Europe did and sometimes better too. If you wish to more about China and its beginnings this is a amazing book to read.
I've always enjoyed learning about the Asian Cultures and the Ancient Chinese Dynasties are right up there in mystery and intrigue! China's origins and it's ancient people are fascinating and this tutorial gives you an overview that holds your interest and leaves you wanting to learn more.
This was an perfect book. It is interesting enough to read a second time. The culture, inventions and innovations were the most interesting. Previously, I didn't understand all their contributions to Globe Culture. The bibliography is a amazing source for more information.
This book was interesting. I learned so much info that I really didn't know before. The pictures of the ancient emperors and the maps were very nice to look at as well as helpful in figuring out who was who and where the various regions were.
I bought this to use as the background to my YouTube videos, and I honestly love it so much!! It did come really wrinkled which I expected but morning that an ironing board and iron couldn’t fix. It makes for the excellent background for videos!
We bought this to take images of my daughter in her christening outfit for her thank you cards and it was perfect. I hung it the night before and then the morning of I lightly steamed and the creases came right out. Photographed beautifully.
I've only used this backdrop for one shoot so far but I really loved the method it looked. I did have a small bit of a hard time getting the crease's out even with following their directions. I'm not sure about durability yet because like I said I've only used it once but it looks like it'll latest a while with proper care. I'm actually considering getting the silver ver in the future.
I was a small worried about buying this because it was very affordable compared to a lot of other back drops but I am so glad I purchased this!! We used this for my daughters first birthday cake smash and it was PERFECT! First off it comes folded so you do have to iron it (on low heat on the backside) which is super simple and did not take nearly as long as I thought. But the wrinkles came right out ! Also my daughter did obtain cake everywhere while doing her cake smash so at first I thought it was going to be ruined.... Nope! Picked up all the pieces I could then used a wet hand towel and lightly scrubbed. Literally no hurt was done to the back drop and it was completely clean (and it dried really fast). I am so satisfied with this purchase! Looked exactly like the picture, excellent size, and got here when it was supposed to (although that has more to do with the shipping company and not the actual product).
Very disappointed in this backdrop. It did not come rolled up but came folded in an envelope. Unfortunately where the creases were the backdrop was transparent and the color was faded.
I bought the cloth one of these and I am VERY satisfied with my purchase. It did come very wrinkled but a steamer helped me obtain rid of that for the most part. It is not a very thick background though so if that’s what you’re looking for this isn’t it.
I wanted a beautiful backdrop that could be very versatile, neutral in color, but not boring and/or plain. This is dazzling and met all of my expectations. This was a nice yet cheaper alternative to having my fur baby images taken. I ordered the 5 x 7 and it was more than enough zone for her and a few props if desired. For a person I would imagine 3-4 people would be the limit to comfortably pose together.A few things to note:-It will most likely be very wrinkled like mine was but I used a steamer to smooth it out but as you can see in the image (where she is wearing the black and gold dress) I neglected a spot since I was rushing so you can see a crinkle.-Fabric is on the thinner side so depending on your surroundings and lighting it may be see through. I had a plain solid colourful wall behind my backdrop.I highly recommend this product.
I really love this backdrop! For the record, this is the very first that I've purchased of this size and type. It looks exactly as pictured, and the print is very clear and absolutely does come folded up as opposed to rolled, so you'll need to hang it and use some way to obtain the creases out before using. It's fully vinyl on both sides (imagine one of those heavier duty picnic table cloths without the soft side), so I used a steamer on low to do the job.* The images that I took unfortunately got deleted from my phone. I've taken the backdrop down to paint the room that I hold it in, but will add images to this review asap!
I had ordered another backdrop for my daughter's baby shower. She was having a unicorn theme. After 3 weeks, this backdrop was not showing up. I woke up in a panic Thursday morning at 3:00am. Found this on amazon, on my phone, one click, this beauty showed up on Saturday. Thank you so much you saved our photos!! It comes folded up, but I was aware of this so I have a clothes steamer and I carefully steamed it, making sure not to obtain it too hot. Our pictures came out awesome and professional looking. The one I posted is really cropped so I wasn't posting other's pictures.
Golden Boy in movie form is almost brilliant. Joe Bonaparte is a gifted violinist, but poverty bites hard and he tries his hand at the noble art of pugilism, he proves to be a natural and a career at the top beckons, but does he risk damaging his hands and ending his interest in another noble art? Angst abound as this Rouben Mamoulian adaptation of the Clifford Odets play hits a dramatic spot, whilst simultaneously firmly being only of its time. It hasn't aged well, its dialogue and hero portrayals quite simply would be scoffed at now, but this is 1939 and one really has to have the fortitude to appreciate the late 30s sensibilities to enhance the viewing experience. We follow Joe Bonapart (a unbelievable and new faced debut from William Holden) as he is torn apart by those closest to him, family pressures, love interests and spurious heavies, all combine to pull him from pillar to post. It makes for a riveting viewing, yet after two thirds of intense hero build up I found the movie to be something of a allow down entering the final round. Those familiar with the scene ver of Golden Boy will be aware of a vastly various ending to the one we obtain on film, and it's a shame that the makers here wasn't brave enough to give what I believe to be the ending the movie deserves. Another irritant to me was the performance of Joseph Calleia as Eddie Fuseli, where there should be menace from this gangster type fellow, we instead obtain over the top spivery that ultimately is method too much. Still the direction from Mamoulian perfectly frames the main characters, and Barbara Stanwyck adds a touch of class to the proceedings as the duplitious Lorna Moon. Also of note is the score from Victor Young, whilst the production value is very high indeed. Golden Boy is a movie I certainly recommend to mates interested in classic cinema, but sadly to me it will always stop short of being a real classic, something I feel that the original ending would possibly have given it. 7/10
I love this application and I'm not even a photographer. I can add cities and see how long their days are. It also has a dozens of cities above and below the equator. I can change the date and see when the sun sets or rises on any day of the year, how long the day is etc. It's also helpful with the twilight hours because my husband and I ride a motorcycle and we don't wish to obtain caught riding west when the sun approaches the horizon. This application explicitly says what times to avoid riding west.
