Changing My Wardrobe is a tragic high school drama about starting over, fitting in, and discovering the truth about what really matters. It's a...more
Now, about book. Honestly at first I thought I'm gonna be so disappointed in this book. People don't get me wrong, but I'm sick and tired of people full of prejudices in every book. You know, things like if I'm beautiful I can only be friend with beautiful people. Every time I read book when you have those people I want to yell "GET OVER YOURSELF". But then I do under...more
I don't want to give away anything of the story, but that makes it really hard to write the review.

First I want to say that I absolutely loved this story. I think everyone should read this book whether you have young kids, old kids or no kids. I also believe everyone knows a Lindsey or an Avery or was one or the other themselves. Bullying is so big in children nowadays, having books like this available to children is a great deal. It's like an outsider looking in and understanding the different aspects of bullying and how and why some people become bullies.
This story touched me because it som...more
This is Deb Hanrahan first novel, I enjoyed her writing, and the plot was great, loved the characters and never once put the book down. This is a tragic story and one I would say ever high school youth should read. Deb Hanrahan has written a story of a young woman who just wanted to fit in and make her high school years better then what she dealt with in middle school.
We meet Lindsey who is a smart young woman, who maybe in middle school didn’t have the best f...more
‘As my iPod played “Cosmic Love” by Florence + the Machine, the growing pile of clothes on my bedroom floor made me anxious. I stood in front of my full-length mirror, trying on the last outfit that I owned. My closet was empty, and I still had nothing to wear for my first day of high school. The sun was setting, and I was running out of time.’
Alright, I’m going to start of with a little litany about myself when I started reading this book. At first, I actually loo...more

Because I don't want to spoil things for future readers, I will be very short in my review. There was something about the premise of Changing My Wardrobe that had me wanting to read the book. I went into the book without any expectations and in turn ended up being shell-shocked.
I was so astounded by the events that occurred in the book that it took me some while to gather my thoughts. The book really got me thinking about the whole issue of bullying. Fr...more

This book is powerfully written, and beautifully captures what life is like as a teenager. Everybody has their Avery (their tormentor), Marcos (the boy they're hopelessly in love with), and Teeny (the best friend they wish they could be).
This book touches upon how many people feel while starting high school. This book poignantly deals with loss and dealing with that loss.
A beautiful book that kept me entertaine and also had the great honor of coming up with an ending that I didn...more
(Goodreads Review) Could you improve your social standing by simply changing your wardrobe? Would new shoes make you more popular? Would a new top get you the guy? Would cleaning out your closet make the mean girls go away? Li...more

To my pleasant surprise, I found Deb Hanrahan’s book an easy fast read and had me thoroughly entertained throughout, except at the...more
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading Changing My Wardrobe. Deb Hanrahan created a very realistic story that depicts what can happen with the constant verbal onslaught of negative comments towards another.
It's the night before Lindsey's first day of high school and she wants this year to be different from her experience in junior high. She invites Teeny over to pick out an outfit that will help change her image. Even though she is unco...more
Li este livro a 21 de Abril de 2012. Gostei tanto, que lhe dou 5 estrelas.
Nesta história é-nos apresentada Lindsey, uma rapariga que tenciona mudar de vida ao entrar no liceu. Farta de ser invisível e/ ou gozada pelos colegas, renova o seu guarda-roupa; os resultados saltam à vista logo no primeiro dia de aulas. Quem de nós não ansiou por uma oportunidade destas na escola?
Agradaram-me os temas tratados, nomeadamente o bullying; os jovens podem ser deveras cruéis uns para os outros.
I do have to say that I liked Lindsey's friends more than Lindsey for most of the book. I wanted to like Lindsey but she treated Jocelyn poorly. Her thoughts and actions did not show Lindsey in a good light. At times, the dialogue between the characters felt flat. Teeny stole the spotlight from Lindsey on many occasions. I almost think the story would have be...more

And here it is my review:
First of all, I have to tell you that you’ll love this story from the very first page.
You’ll have fun with Teeny and Grouper, you’ll tottaly freak out when you’ll meat Jocelyn, you’ll melt away when you’ll see Marco, you’ll wish you could beat up Avery, but, most sure, you’ll live the feelings of a young teenager that'...more
I love the stereo-typical groups and how she shows bullying, this in itself is relatable and evokes feeling for the characters.
The plot twist at the end seemed thrown together and a little like an after thought making the ending completely unsatisfying. It threw off the dynamic of the characters, almost changing them completely from their identity, even though that would normally happen i...more
A sad reminder of the pain that so many kids go through everyday due to bullies... but, as we are told so many times, "They are just kids." or "They will grow up and get passed this." I hope someday our country wakes up to the fact that there is not such thing as "just kids" and realize that pain is pain. As an early childhood teacher I see the pain that kids inflict on one anoth...more
The book is very enjoyable, not something I would normally go for but nevertheless, a great read. Lindsey, the main character, tries very hard to stand up to bullies. She has her best friend, Teeny, to stand up for her most of the time but when life gets too hard for teeny, it begins to show. Things start to look up when Lindsey meets the gorgeou...more
