When the new family moves to Anjies house, she hopes that she will be nice, smart, funny, and not a typical drama queen. Well, Elise wasnt exactly nice at first, but they finally find enough topics to talk about aside from Elises mourning of leaving California. Elise was not the kind of girl Cassidy usually friends 3. Elise was not the kind of girl Cassidy usually friends with. While Cassidy loves studying and is awkward around boys, Elise drinks alcohol, goes to parties, and determines to hate school although she has enough IQ that would let her run for Mensa president.
Cassidy finds Elise fascinating and despite their differences, they become friends. Cassidy will have to be able to make sure that Elise stay sober and in the same time find a way to get Josh to notice her in more than an immature sophomore. This book is a fun, quick read.
Cassidy is a smart and great character. She likes herself just the way she is and that makes me proud of her. That makes me want to give her an award for being the model heroine, really. Plus, I need to mention that Cassidy is smart! Smart girls who also manage to be nice, pretty, and still believable are rare. I really like Josh too. He is responsible and nice, the type of brother you would love to have. I can picture the conversations he has with Cassidy and Elise clearly because they just seem so natural.
The whole story made me giggling all along and though there is hardly any life-changing moment, the story flows nicely and is true to life. In overall, Blue and other Teenage Hazards is the kind of book that will leave you with smile on your face. No dramatic tears, no back-stabbing drama, no lack of self-respect. But then, to see your friend kissing your boyfriend—and kissing him out in public where people could snap photos and send them to you—ouch.
Low blow. Hall mark should make sympathy cards for those sorts of occasions. Read other reviews in my blog!
