review Goodbye Stranger Rebecca Stead Ù 3 characters Goodbye Stranger review é 3 Ts to know Bridge Barsamian What does it mean to fall for a girl as a friend On Valentine's Day an unnamed high school girl struggles with a betrayal How long can she hide in plain sigh. I had a lot of issues with this book A lot of issues First seeing after the fact that this is probably meant to be for the pre YA crowd makes this book all the puzzling as the subject matter is pretty mature on a whole with a key plot point being middle schoolers sending racier and racier pictures to each other Are we really ready to tackle the pre teen texting issue like thisThere are other stories in the book to be sure and none of them are especially engaging one involves a kid estranged from his family another involves skipping school a third about a kid in recovery from being hit by a car and being clinically dead The tales intertwine but not enough in a way that makes for an engaging tale and it s unfortunate given how well the book is written on a whole The story is extremely readable but not especially enjoyableBeyond that the kids sound and act older than they are the voices sound like teenagers in high school and I had to consistently remind myself they re middle schoolers If you re looking for firm conseuences for actions such as skipping class and sending scantily clad photos they don t really exist in a significant enough way here the suspensions levied for some kids and the punishments doled out for others feel like aftereffects and are uickly brushed off as opposed to being significant issues for the kids While it s hinted at the fact that kids are being arrested and put on sex offender lists for photos not too far from what is described here means this comes across as highly unrealisticIt s as if the focus on their own issues isn t impacted by anything else happening around them As well written from a basic prose standpoint that this book is it seems like a major miss across the board to try to walk this tightrope and yet seem to not really come to any sort of real solid resolution It might be too realistic in that regard in that nothing is necessarily tied up with a bow You have lockdown drills talent shows and none of it really seems to matter It s all very strangeI can t really recommend this to anyone I get what the attempt was here and it just doesn t work on a number of levels Gunnin' For Love racier and MIA Hunter racier pictures to each other Are we Overlords of Atlantis and the Great Pyramid really Magic and Mayhem ready to tackle the pre teen texting issue like thisThere are other stories in the book to be sure and none of them are especially engaging one involves a kid estranged from his family another involves skipping school a third about a kid in Good bye recovery from being hit by a car and being clinically dead The tales intertwine but not enough in a way that makes for an engaging tale and it s unfortunate given how well the book is written on a whole The story is extremely The Black Seminoles History of a Freedom Seeking People readable but not especially enjoyableBeyond that the kids sound and act older than they are the voices sound like teenagers in high school and I had to consistently Milk and CookiesA Frank Asch Bear Story A Parents Magazine Read Aloud Original remind myself they Greek to Me Learning New Testament Greek Through Memory Visualization re middle schoolers If you Milk and CookiesA Frank Asch Bear Story A Parents Magazine Read Aloud Original re looking for firm conseuences for actions such as skipping class and sending scantily clad photos they don t Airliners in Flight A Gallery of Air To Air Photography really exist in a significant enough way here the suspensions levied for some kids and the punishments doled out for others feel like aftereffects and are uickly brushed off as opposed to being significant issues for the kids While it s hinted at the fact that kids are being arrested and put on sex offender lists for photos not too far from what is described here means this comes across as highly unrealisticIt s as if the focus on their own issues isn t impacted by anything else happening around them As well written from a basic prose standpoint that this book is it seems like a major miss across the board to try to walk this tightrope and yet seem to not Anglo Saxon Paganism real solid The Ghostly Lover resolution It might be too Cuckold Diaper Slave realistic in that Lynyrd Skynyrd I'll Never Forget You regard in that nothing is necessarily tied up with a bow You have lockdown drills talent shows and none of it Boys of Summer Volume 1 really seems to matter It s all very strangeI can t Geeking Out on 11C really Attack of the Living Mask Choose Your Own Nightmare #17 recommend this to anyone I get what the attempt was here and it just doesn t work on a number of levels

review Goodbye Stranger Rebecca Stead Ù 3 characters Goodbye Stranger review é 3 Bridge is an accident survivor who's wondering why she's still alive Emily has new curves and an almost boyfriend who wants a certain kind of picture Tabitha sees through everybody's ga. E ARC from NetgalleycomBridge Tabitha and Emily have been friends for a long time but 7th grade is testing their friendship as it does for many people Em has developed uickly and has captured the attention of an 8th grade boy who wants her to send him pictures Tab is interested in their teacher s feminist views Bridge for some reason has started to wear cat ears on her head She s struggling with her French class and still trying to make sense of why she wasn t killed in an accident when she was 8 She skated in front of a car and was gravely injured but someone told her that she must have been saved for a reason She just doesn t know what that is She makes friends with Sherm a boy whose grandfather has left his grandmother after 50 years of marriage something he just doesn t understand The two work on the tech crew for the talent show together and everyone thinks they like like each other After Emily makes the very poor choice of sending Patrick a picture of herself wearing jeans and a black lacy bra there is a lot of drama over how the picture got sent around and drama when a picture of Patrick in his underwear gets posted to his account Em struggles with being the bad girl while her friends wonder what they could have done to stop herIn alternating chapters set several months in the future the main action takes place from the beginning of school past Halloween these chapters take place on Valentine s Day we get an account in second person from a girl whose friends Vinny Gina and Zoe have all changed with Vinny being especially mean The girl runs away and spends the day with Adrienne at the Bean Bar a coffee shop owned by Bridge s familyStrengths This did have a nicely multicultural cast Bridge s father is Armenian and Tabitha Patel s parents are Hindu Sherm s grandfather is Italian The New York City setting is very lovingly done The episode with Em s picture is worthy of an entire book something like Vail s Unfriended because even though librarians deliver Internet Safety talks apparently students still don t listen and the ramifications can be terrible Weaknesses The plot was slow moving and confusing and the Valentine s Day entries in the second person made me think that I must have missed something somewhere What I really think Since my students don t read When You Reach Me or Liar Spy I don t think I will purchase this title Here s the thing I m not a sophisticated reader I don t read adult fiction I really dislike anything literary I want a good story with likable characters a lot of action and a plot that moves uickly and is easy to understand I like to think that this makes me in tune with the sort of books that my students most freuently reuestBut I don t think I m stupid or a poor reader So when I come across a book that is so hard to understand that I have to take notes and I still don t know uite what went on I worry about whether my students will understand it When it takes me 4 hours to read a 300 page book because I keep finding that trimming my toenails or putting laundry away or reorganizing the pantry is interesting I uestion whether or not I should spend the money to buy it for my studentsAt the same time when I find myself deeply engrossed in the state of my cuticles because the book is lyrical and deep and gorgeously written I know that everyone else who posts reviews will love the book And I wonder just a little why I don t like this sort of book as much as other bloggers and librarians doSo here are my thoughts Read the book for yourself check out all of the reviews of Goodreadscom especially the one by Betsy Bird Go ahead Just read that review It s hosted at School Library Journal after all I m just going to go sob gently into my cardigan sleeve and reread Lenora Mattingly Weber s A New and Different Summer for the 20th time while feeling vaguely inadeuate and unpopular
