This girl, Lucy, and her mother have an issue that needs to be amended. It needs to be resolved before both of them are lost within the piles of newspaper and the endless amounts of trash. Yep, your assumptions are correct, Lucy's mother is a hoarder. Unable to restrain herself Lucy's mother just keeps building and building upon what used to be their home but is now, what we would call a landfill. Lucy being the only one in the home that can alter the situation and make both of their lives better, sets off to do exactly that. Hopefully before her mother's addiction can become fatal.
Okay so, I did not think I would but I adored this book. It portrays not only the seriousness of hoarding but also they way it effects everyone in a family and just the person hoarding.
That's all for now! Bye
Hey, long time no write, and I know you've noticed the different look of the webpage. Well, I had to make some changes and get everything together. I couldn't just give you some lazy work that no better than that which comes from the bottom of my shoe, could I? So anyway, Girl Parts...
Are you "disconnected"? Do you often feel yourself slipping from reality? Do you find yourself not being able to empathize? Well, this is directly a result of not having someone to talk to at all hours of the day, and be around you all hours of the day. Their solution: A robot! That looks like a girl!(hence the title) This robot would be for boys(clearly), to develop their social skills. Now before you get all riled up, about this "doll" of sorts, know that this "doll" has an "intimacy clock" meaning if it is not the appropriate time for a handshake than you are getting a shock. Kind of like a shock-collar for dogs right? This book follows two boys on their way to being re-connected.
So, my opinion is complicated. I figure I will just start typing it out and see where it goes. I enjoyed the way it was written, though the whole story plot irritated the feminist within me. I won't go on a rampage, but seriously? Why is it just girls they are imitating with their robots, and why were all of the girls featured in the story such horrible people? Anyhow, there were certainly parts that I completely disliked, but it had it's good moments, like one of the main characters, I enjoyed his perspective.
I don't know, but if this sounds like something you are interested in feel free to go and read it. I would hate to stop you, because it truly is a good book with a good point. I just didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
So I have been accepted to be on a board for a website called teenreads.com Good news, nothing in the blog will be effected. Even better they have told me about a a special give away! All you must do is take a survey and you can win one of 450(!) books that they are just giving away! The only requirements, you must like YA books(like me) and you have to be older than ten(which I am sure you are...). So my loves, go off and survey like there is no tomorrow. This ends the first of January(my amazing birth-month), so don't slack guys!
Okay, I hope the Brittany Spears quote will soften your anger with me when I tell you that I have forgotten to readagainthisweek! I am so sorry! I totally meant to and I forgot once again. Okay, so yeah, Next week for certain I will have a review posted for you. Never you worry!
