retro:A fashion, decor, design, or style reminiscent of things past. pg 1
I really like this book, immediately I was hooked. Although there are a lot of characters and i sometimes get confused. I think it’s really cool how they live like celebrities and they have millions of dollars.
Number of Pages: 269
This book is an A list novel and is also the New York Times bestselling series.
I chose this book because the cover was colorful and it caught my eye then when i picked it up i read the summary on the back and it seemed intresting so i bought it.
