Take Me There by Susane Colasanti

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Plot: "Rhiannon loves order, math, and Steve, but Steve dumped her for the manipulative, skanky Gloria. James loves serenity, designing software, and his friendship with Rhiannon. But his home is chaotic, and Rhiannon doesn’t know how much he cares for her. Nicole loves her math teacher, her friendship with Rhiannon, and her ex-boyfriend, Danny. But Nicole has a secret that threatens all of her relationships. Over the course of a week, Colasanti’s story, told in alternating narratives, describes how the three teens cope with the same events, each other, and their own issues. Each character’s voice is strong, and the dialogue is stolen right from the corridors of a contemporary high school. Readers, especially girls, will appreciate the very satisfying resolutions of all three characters’ issues: Rhiannon gets revenge and recognizes the depth of her friendship with James; James receives a surprising gift; and Nicole acknowledges the consequences of her father’s abuse and her conflicted feelings for Danny."

This book was okay...it kind of dragged on, at first I was interested, but then it just kind of fizzled out. I think this book would have been better if it were a little shorter and got to the point a little sooner.

Review: I've read better

This book is the one of the amazing books by Susane Colasanti. She really know's how hard it is to love someone and then what a girl feels like after break up. She's one of the most amazing teen romance novelists. She is similar in writing to author Sarah Dessen.
