Screw Loose Reviews
I loved it.The exaggerated personalities and the insane characters. It was great.It was hilarious. While the characters are hilarious and obviously exaggerated , like Zeynep the obsessive germ killer (i mean it when i say obsessive) , they all seem so real at the same time. While there are many characters, about eight main ones, each character is memorable. They all had something going in their life , yet I was able to differentiate between each one. The thing about this book I liked the most is that the author used completely different personailities , and managed to link their lives together in one school. Personally , I think this is what made the characters and book seem "real" as the character's situations and personality developed due to the actions of others. It's a fast read (especially for 300pages) and it doesnt drag like most books do. Reccomend it anyone who likes that books don't have to be dead serious and realistic all the time. Most teens would like it , because its insane and exaggerated , a bit like highschool.
Screw Loose was a brilliant read I picked up in a local shop for only £2!I loved this book it was funny,light-hearted, realistic and had really over-exaggerated characters which brought the book to life. This book was so out there and crazy you could almost believe it was real. I found it entertaining and I liked reading every other chapter from a different characters view and I loved the diversity. It was a fun read with no real set story line, I suggest this for a quick Saturday morning read not a few hours sat down. This book was made to be read chapter at a time in a spare five minutes. It's funny. Read it, seriously there is no effort needed to read this book.
This is definitely teen fiction. The sequel to Loose Lips, it is just as tangled.It had some pretty exciting bits but by the end I was just waiting for it to finish. A lot happened but in the climax but I just really don't like Chelsea so that ruined it for me, having her chapter be the last, though it was fitting.The author has a bit of trouble with the environment. I know what all these places look like because I frequent the area but it'd be hard to imagine if you didn't.I would definitely recommend this to teenagers.

Fairly outrageous story about Australian teens at school- you wonder where it's going, but it gets there in the end (?).
