Nothing is beyond Kristi Carmichael’s disdainher hippie high school, her friend Jacob, her workaholic mom. Yet for all her attitude and her mind-reading abilities, Kristi has a vulnerable side. She can hear the thoughts of her fellow students, calling her fat and gross. She’s hot for Gusty Peterson, one of the most popular guys in school, but of course, she’s sure he think...more
She’s heard it all: sick, psycho, bitch, ugly, troublemaker. Kristi knows exactly what everyone thinks about her, or so she thinks.
I couldn’t put this book down! It was hilarious and somehow at the sa ...more
From the beginning, I had a huge problem with the main character. Kristi was not only "edg ...more
The main character was impressively unpleasant. I felt like I was being forced to hang out with a miserable, spiteful, self-pitying stereotype. The way everyone judged her was so forced- like, "And now, to make you feel sympathetic for my main character, I'm going to make everybody else in the book suck."
Maybe I'm being naieve. I don't k ...more
For Kristi Carmichael listening to opera music, playing stealth practical jokes, making her own “found ...more
The MC is awful, she sets traps so that people slip and fall or get pelted with dirt in their eyes and then rushes over to help them so then they praise her. She's really judgemental and I can't be ...more
Kristi goes to a totally nutty school called Journeys. Journeys exposes childre ...more
They tell you not to judge a book by its cover...but what about the first couple of chapters?
At first picking up Vibes, I was cheery about it because it was something to do and I was on my third or fourth book of the week. Plus the chapters were shorter than any other book I've previously read, which ...more
One of those reasons is that Kristi (the main character) and Gusty the boy that Kristi likes) have an ongoing relationship that keeps you wondering what they are going to do next. For example on pages 218-219 it says, “I didn’t ask for your forgiveness. And I don’t care what you think of me ...more
Yeah, that’s me – lazy, slacker-type procrastinator.
So, anyway, I picked t ...more
She's independent, mean, judgmental, funny, and not afraid of conflict, all of which combine to make her one of the less popular kids at her "hippy-dippy" high school, Journeys. She's angry at her workaholic mother, and conflicted about her dad, who left the family ...more
But she can't help having a crush on Gusty Peterson, even though she's psychic, and everytime he looks at Kristi, he thinks sick. Yeah, I know, I know, but Kristi doesn't...
I'm having trouble thinking of words to describe it. It wasn't the best thing I've ever read. It wasn't this super fun ride all the way through. It was real, and quirky, and annoying, and beautiful, and flawed. I loved the main character right off the bat. And then I started to kind of hate her. This roller coaster continued throughout the whole book. Which is one of the main things I liked about it, I think. It felt like I was getting a look at a real ...more
The premise of this book, sounded interesting. The idea of a contemporary located in High School, where the main character can read people mind caught my eye. But it wasn’t exactly was I expecting. Instead of our character dealing with life issued, and knowing th ...more
Also, I felt like she didn't really answer the main question of the book.
I didn't like the ending either.
-the heroine was judgemental and bitter and constantly talked about how large her breasts were but she called them 'gazingas' or something and was constantly negative about them
-everyone was preoccupied with looks
-there was a sort of love interest who had no personality but a lot of acne and liked her for no discernible reason
-there was another love interest who had no personality but he was super hot apparently
-the fact that she w ...more
It isn't easy being able to read minds. People think up some pretty nasty sewage. Like the other day- I'm walking home from school when I come across an old guy walking his smelly Doberman. He's definitely a candidate for this year's Stodgist American Award. Black suit coat, gray pants, white stuff in the corners of his mouth. He takes one look at my thick legs in their fishne ...more
The story revolves around Kristi, always thinking of her self as fat, ugly and a bith with "watermelon-size gazungas", and according to her, everyone thinks the same of her. Kristi is a great character. She is tough, ...more
