Pay to get in,
Pray to get out.

TAP, The Angels of Practice, is all everyone can talk about. This website/drink/drug is intoxicating and no one can get enough of it. No one can explain what TAP really is, since it is all around them and they are so dependent on it. The company that owns it holds the most exclusive parties, grants everyone's material wishes, provides all the gossip and promotes the biggest rock star that everyone loves, Johnny Silver.

I picked this book up because 1) I really enjoyed the Blue Blood books and am anxiously waiting for The Van Alen Legacy and 2) it totally sounded like s ...more
The concept behind the book is good and original. TAP, or The Angels Practice is a Facebook/My Space type website with a twist. It is more like a cult, just for teens and young people.

I honestly don't know how I feel about this book now that I'm done. Well, I guess when I put a book down to go clean my bathroom is never a good sign but I think that maybe it was ok.
It followed a really random cultish type organization through their escapades and it was kind of confusing so I think thats why I got bored.
So there isn't much that I can say about the book without totally spoiling it but I guess if you have some free time you could pick this up. I'm definitely going to re ...more
which is incredible considering the blue bloods series has some really high points, too, but
there was something about angels that really hit it home for me

It has IV drugs/herbs, sex, a drag queen guardian, etc. which are not themes that my kids could easily read about.
Her books for adults include the novel Cat’s Meow, the anthology Girls Who Like Boys Who Like ...more
