Girlfriend Trouble Reviews
Girlfriend Trouble is a very well-written book on the subject of bullying and several other growing pains.Robert Shaw puts himself in the shoes not only of victims, but also of perpetrators (who eventually prove to be victims too.) The main ingredients of the story are wisely selected to attract young readers: family relationships; common school types; martial arts; the philosophy of the East; and -- above all -- an adolescent love!As the thread of the story unfolds, the reader has the impression (s)he's watching a film about young romance, but with the added spice of exciting fight and other, more touching scenes, all of which feature vivid characters and realistic situations.Note that the whole story, although imbued with a powerful moral, never succumbs to a didactic tone.In short, Girlfriend Trouble is an engaging story that speaks not only to the young of age, but also to the young at heart.Απάντηση, Απάντηση σε όλους ή Προώθηση | Περισσότερα
Robert Shaw has written a delightful book! Girlfriend Trouble is as far from his other book, The Scare, as you can get and still is just as wonderful but in a completely different way! Clearly Robert has good insight into the minds of both bullies and victims. It is also obvious that he understands people and how they think. This book is wonderfully well written and in the end you are cheering for both the victims and the bullies as they navigate the treacherous waters known as high school. Bravo, Robert Shaw!!! 5 stars.
Although it has been a long while since I was in school, the book brought memories of, if not the specific stories, at least the situations and emotions. Memorable characters, family relationships, adapting to a new school as an outsider, facing your fears and first love... What else can you ask for? Highly recommended.
I nbroke up with my gf after rwading this
