In The Sweetness Of Something All Know Well Our First the sweetness of something all know well our first of high schoolAt first this book is just ridiculous It is told via the stream of consciousness from a fourteen year old girl Carrie has decided she will now be known as Carolina pronounced car o leen ah because she is now grown up and no longer a baby in junior high school We start with her first day full of trepidation and insecurity Trevor a new boy nters the classroom late so she gives him two sheets of paper and a pencil The book is told alternately from Carolina s and Trevor s points of view It really is stream of consciousness probably the funniest thing is when they catch themselves being ridiculous Case in point Carolina often says her life is ruined Then she decides to stop being such a drama ueen and stop referring to her life being ruined It s almost like you re reading their diariesBut the writing fools you I wondered if I could continue with the story after just the second chapter But Gottfred draws us in slowly putting us right into the minds of these two characters They begin a relationship that is naive and sweet full of saccharine almost to the point of nausea But it works because while we re rolling our yes we re understanding that this is the only way these two teenagers know how to communicate Their feelings are heartfelt ven though they relate them in such a juvenile way The sappy dialogue is nicely balanced with their poignant inner musingsAnd they do communicate well which might be where the book strays somewhat into unrealistic territory What two teenagers are that secure in themselves that they can be so honest As their relationship gets and serious they find solace in One Giant Leap each other as their respective families slowly disintegrate It s funny the way they think of the future and yet tragic when they have to face it As I watched themncounter the real world changing feelings changing situations and people I just couldn t turn away My heart just broke for them because life isn t the fairytale they believed it was It was almost like watching t Forever for a Year paints a picture of what it s like to be a teen nowadays relationships start and Apocalyptic Cartography end in a snap friendship and family conflicts arise and finding out who you are turns out to be the hardest thingver But our dear characters Carolina and Trevor have survived They just learned the hard wayFull review on my book blog In the words of Steph O Neil I am going to go out on a limb and say that I am NOT a part of the target audience for this book I don t really know what the author s overall message was with this book but I found myself oftentimes confused appalled and uite often turned off by the unrealistic portrayal of awkward teens who are beginning to xplore the complexities of romance and sexual xploration uite often I d ask myself Is this author serious or What young teen boygirl talks like this I found myself laughing at inappropriate moments and cringing often than notI couldn t bring myself to read the A Bride for McCain entire thing mainly because of the author s overuse of thellipsis as well as the choppy writing which seemed to constantly showcase run on sentences as if it were going out of style I am all for reading YA books that take risks while tackling sexuality and mature themes however this book was. When Carolina and Trevor meet on their first day of school something draws them to Heart and Soul / Almost Heaven each other They gradually share first kisses first touches first sexualxperiences When they’re together nothing lse.
