Could this book be by the Libba Bray I know an love? I thought that A Great and Terrible Beauty was her first book, so what's this?
Ok, I'm giving this book 4 stars FOR ITS INTENDED AUDIENCE (girls aged 12-15). While I like to read YA this is not the type of book that an adult would find engaging (IMO) it's a formulated teen-romance along the lines of The Babysitters Club or something like that.With that said, it's a really cute book. The writing style caught me on page one and I thought it was really funny the whole time. I love humor in a book and this one full of cute little quips that kept me reading. Of course this book was written by an author I really like (Libba Bray of "The Great and Terrible Beauty" fame) which is why I picked it up in the first place.The characters are nice but not stupid or overly hip (thought the language and references are definitely current to the year 2000 -OMG were we really still doing VHS 9 short years ago??) the villians are not overly hideous and there isn't any angst in the realms of "cutting" or other horrible crap. It's a light book but still has enough substance to keep the reader interested. There are ups and downs but nobody drowns in them. I really wish Libba Bray would write more books!The "Sweet 16" is a series of books written by different authors but this was written with wit and humor and it was really sweet. I whole-heartedly recommend it for the right audience. I'm impressed by the author's ability to write like a tw/eenager and I know my 14 yr old self would have been a happy camper.Kari is a conventional girl who lives with a family of "individuals" who constantly embarrass her. She decides to film a documentary but realizes that she can't (and in the end shouldn't) try to script the characters at all. Enjoy!
I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I read this book. I mean it's not something I usually go for, but I just really felt the need to read a Libba Bray novel all of a sudden, and this was the only one I could find on such short notice.Anyways, this book was interesting in that it wasn't as predictable as I thought it would be. The story was slightly different from most teen stories in that way. I liked the message of the story even if it wasn't ground-breaking or anything like that. It was very cute even if it was a little fabricated.The biggest problem I had with this book is that there were so many grammatical errors. I don't mind a few small grammar errors here or there, but this book had BIG grammar errors as in a few of the sentences were unintelligble. It was that bad, and it worsened as the story progressed.Other than the errors, I think this is a cute and entertaining book that I would recommencd to tweens. It really wasn't as bad as it looks. Plus, it has Libba Bray's hilarious writng style, so that's a major bonus right there.
I LURVE anything by Libba Bray, but this one just didn't do it for me. I really disliked Kari from the beginning; to me she was spoiled, selfish and ungrateful brat. And it was predictable which is unusual, as all other boks that I read by Libba Bray were anything but predictable.
Nope, this book really sucked. A book about how you should change yourself to get the boy you want, only to realise that you should just be who you are, goal is still to get the boy you want. Would not recommend.
I read this book in Chapters one day while waiting for a movie to start. I was older than 16, so it perhaps didn't hold that much magic to it because of that. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't OMG AMAZING either.
