The Starving Bibliophile

Books before food (and any sort of comfortable life).

Define “Normal”

Summary: Antonia is a “priss,” Jazz is a “punk.” Antonia belongs to the math club. Jazz hangs out at the tattoo parlor. Antonia’s parents are divorced and her mother struggles to pay the rent. Jazz is from a traditional family and lives in a mansion with a pool. But when these two very different girls find themselves facing each other in a peer-counseling program, they discover they have some surprising things in common. Alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching, this is an absorbing read that will keep audiences thinking and laughing.

This book was certainly not the best book, but it was a good book to read when you’re bored and have nothing else to do. It’s not that Julie Anne Peters isn’t a good writer or anything, it’s just that the main character/narrator is just plain annoying. She’s always like “oh my life sucks ass so I’m going to be a bitch to everyone around me blah blah blah.” Jazz was pretty awesome, though; I could relate to her. The storyline and problems that the girls faced were genuine and real, something people can really relate to. Overall, the story was good, but probably something I wouldn’t read again.
