As I always get a giggle out of Travis Jonker's One Star Review Guess Who posts, I figured I'd swipe the idea and post the occasional one-star Amazon review of a much-lauded YA title.
So, can you guess what book this disappointed reader is reviewing?:
[Title] is a friendship/mystery novel. [Protagonist] and [Title Character] have been friends since grade school and he tells the story about the mystery of [Title Character] and her family. [Protagonist] eventually starts to lose weight from joining the swim team in high school but [Title Character] gets self conscious about herself and is afraid [Protagonist] wont talk to her anymore. To prove to [Title Character] that he isn't one of the jocks, he eats extra helpings of food to stay fat for [Title Character].Click on through for the answer!
I think the author could of talked about different stories throughout the book. He would drag on and on about one subject that would be absolutely boring if they didn't know or take interest in that topic. Most people wouldn't.
This novel is a little confusing at first because it goes from past to present all the time. I read this book with my literature circle and everyone agreed that the book wasn't interesting to read. In my opinion, it went real slow and was boring. It was hard to keep reading the book when I had too. If you were looking for real friendship romance and mystery books, I'd defiantly think you should try out a different book. The real interesting parts of the story were way at the very end. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. No offence to the rest of the people on the net that read the book and thought it was fabulous.
