Unfriended

In middle school nothing is important than friendshipWhen Truly is invited to sit at the Popular Table with the group she has dreamed of joining she can hardly believe her luck Everyone seems so nice so kind to one another But all is not I as an adult love young adult books However this one was horrible I probably could ve read it a day and it took me a lot longer than that I have OCD and I can t just not finish a book LOL HATED ITSo I expected some mean girls some good drama bullying o plenty and what I got was whitewashed Here s the thing the popular table usually mean girls were actually very nice There were only two mean girls and they had both been Truly s friend before she got invited to the popular table One of the mean girls wasn t really even that mean she just had her feelings hurt and went a little too farThe dialogue was hideous I love books that are told from different points of view that was good I had no trouble keeping up with the characters However it seemed a feeble embarrassing attempt on the part of an adult to try to speak like kids do Either the kids were speaking like grown ups would or it was just a sad attempt to speak kid eseI would say around 95% of the young adult books I have read have depth and deal with topics that are above what they should be dealing with At least in my own adult mind Sadly kids do deal with these things The only thing I took away from this book that was the least bit deep and thought provoking was what Hazel s grandma said Bullying has always been around It s not new The technology is Now you can just spread it faster and reach a larger audience The human nature to scorn has always been thereSo that was the one thing Now that you know save yourself some and skip this book I really wish I could give it no stars

ScapeSix eighth graders four girls and two boys struggle to understand and process their fractured glimples into one another's lives as they find new ways to disconnect but also to connect in Rachel Vail's richest and most searching book I have one major major complaint about this book Hazel That self righteous shit stirring abusive self absorbed little YOU DON T EVEN WANT TO KNOW THE NAMES I HAVE FOR THIS GIRLWe had the same ballerina jewelry boxes So corny the kind with a little ballerina that twirls around when you open it So girly and cliche we both thought As if every little girl is supposed to dream of becoming a tiny ballerina And collect jewels to fill the box Though when I was little I loved that thing I thought it was so grown up But I did see Hazel s point as soon as she made it I agreed right away that it was horribly anti feminist and also tackyThis is on page 3 It is astonishing how uickly this book managed to blatantly piss me off Oh well pardon me if ballerinas are anti feminist now Hazel The next time I see a woman who s dedicated years upon years of hard work and discipline to perfect the art of ballet dancing I ll be sure to let her know that it makes her a dis empowered woman since that s what I assume you mean by anti feminist since that s what most self righteous assholes mean when they say it Bless you for being a reminder why loads of women choose to tell feminism to take a hikeOh and by the way you and Truly seem to have some difficulty grasping the function of a jewelry box Most people don t put jewels in they put jewelry in Which a lot of people have I fail to see how stupid or unrealistic that isPage ThreeAs the story plays out it turns out that Hazel is a condescending emotionally manipulative and thoroughly abusive little asshole who is every bit as nasty as she claims Natasha to be I d argue worse in some respects because she really enjoys pretending that she s the eternal victim a real girl who isn t like those empty headed popular girlsWhat s that one post on TumblrTwitter The worst thing about geeks that become bullies is that you ll never convince them that they re anything but victims YEAH THAT S THE ONE I M LOOKING FORDon t get me wrong Natasha was a little beast too and really it was so adorable to realize how many similarities she and Hazel had They re both emotionally abusive manipulative little bullies who crapped on Truly at every opportunity And while Truly did have flaws dumping Hazel randomly wasn t cool they completely exaggerated them and overreacted to her mistakes and you know it was because they thought they were superior to her and how dare she defy them how dare she do something they didn t approve of Natasha and Hazel had Issues Natasha is implied to come from a lower economic background with a mother who has problems and Hazel s parents were dangerously close to a divorce and suddenly began paying a lot less attention to herSo obviously that means it s okay for them to project onto Truly It s okay for them to call her spoiled when they clearly have their heads so far up their own assholes they can t see anything else any It s okay for Hazel to hack into Truly s social networking accounts and make everyone hate her Sure it isThey both needed a kick in the pants in the worst kind of way Especially fucking Hazel at the end who said that she had GOOD REASONS to hack Truly s account like sitting with a bunch of girls that Hazel didn t like for ONE LUNCH PERIOD somehow justified impersonating Truly and making everyone hate her and bully the hell out of her Yeah this brat learned nothing Nothing at allI hate Hazel I hate Natasha I don t care how bad they had it they were horrible and they were absolutely itching to rip Truly apart for ridiculous reasons I will say that there were some redeeming aspects to this book Clay saying that Jack was ready to go over to Truly s house and set himself on fire on her front lawn as penance for her injury gave me a cackle or two as did a couple of other linesBut that s about it Watching Truly get railroaded as a bully when she was actually not an asshole in the least only a bit too easily led and naive was painful to read
