Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson

Tyler could be described as a typical high school loser-average looking, not popular, few friends. Tyler pulled a stupid prank at the end of his junior year of high school. As a result, he had to perform community service, lost his car and his parents took his drivers license. Tyler spent the summer working with the school janitors and he bulked up. The result of Tyler's prank and his new apperance causes Tyler to gain the attention of the high school princess, Bethany. The result of a highschool party causes Tyler to question his esistence.

I was not a big fan of this book. I felt that Anderson wrapped the book up into a neat little package with a puke colored bow. The book was too "and they lived happily-ever-after" for me.

The best part of this book was Yoda, Tyler's Star War's obsessed best friend.

It's been awhile

Holy cow! I can't believe that I haven't been able to post since January. I had to set the computer aside and continue on my academic journey. Thank god I have a break until June!

I am in the process of reading Picoult's 19 Minutes. Love it!!!

My next task is to put together a must read book list for my teachers.
