Elle's life is totally over. The economy crashed, her father passed away, and now she has to move to the boring suburbs with her stepmother Marie and lame new sisters, Claire and Danielle. Claire needs to grow a spine, Danielle has serious trust issues, and Marie forces Elle to "clean things"--a torture she would do anything to avoid.

The most annoying thing about books about teenagers is that usually the teenagers in them act nothing like any teenager I ever knew. In Bubbles Pop, each perspective of the three sisters reveals a different side to the story and how the teenagers are truly almost entirely focused on themselves; in other words, accurate with the real world. In addition, the actual content and style of their thoughts does a great job of demonstrating the maturation of the teenagers over the time scale of the book. ...more

I won this book from librarything in exchange for an honest review.

This book chronicles the lives of three different sisters as they go through a difficult year learning about love and life (mainly love), and the issues that surround it. It is an odd telling of Cinderella (which was are introduced to the Asian version of the story at the beginning of the book). The book is written completely in first person but in alternating chapters from each viewpoint of each sister.

Blog Review For: GMTA

"Bubbles Pop" by T.K. Marnell was a interesting read about three sisters revealing different sides of their life while growing up in eastern Pennsylvania. Each one of the girls (Ellie, Danielle and Claire) have a story that will take you on a good read. Each girl's story shows different maturation of how they focused on themselves during that period of time
Honestly, I don’t think the given description on Bubbles Pop is accurate. It leaves out so much! I guess it gets the main point about Galen being Steve’s best friend, but it’s leaving out the other important characters. This book was told from Dani’s and Claire’s points of view too! It was a nice surprise, because I loved all three sisters.

The oldest, Dani, is in college. She isn’t really as lively as Elle and Claire, but she is funny. She works in this book store and likes to mess with her co w
When I first started reading, the characters were IMMENSELY annoying. I wondered what had made me purchase it in the first place. Even though I say it's annoying, I gave it a rather high rating yet despite me liking it I lowered it a star because it was annoying at first. However, part of the appeal later on was that I could stand all the characters and not hate them. I enjoyed seeing the characters face their problems and have experiences and it was great reading from different point of views. ...more
It was a good read but I didn't exactly love it. Ellie, who is one of the 3 point of views the story is told from, had to one of the most unlikeable characters. She was a bit annoying to read and I didn't buy the change that occurred to her. I also wasn't particularly fond of the ending. The story is an enjoyable one but nothing really special. At times I was frustrated with the way the characters were portrayed and very cheesy moments where I wanted to scream " who does this?" And Steve, I coul ...more
The characters at first very annoying especially Ellie, she was so mean and was all about me -__-" later on the all changed ad became less annoying. They all mellowed out. I didn't like the ending though. It was to abrupt and I didn't really know if Ellie and Galen ended up together.
Also the POV's were very confusing at first I, truthfully, didn't know who was talking because it would randomly change. Leaving me confused of who they were talking about. After you get used to it, it's easy to kno

Three sisters with their own point of view on events that take the reader on an interesting ride. I thought the author captured the teen drama perfectly and gave each sister her own unique voice with honesty and a sense of humor. I found a few times certain events were dragged on a just a little but overall enjoyed the story.
What? That's the ending? Did I miss something? I sat through Elle's obnoxious voice for this entire novel, only to end up with no conclusion for her part of the story. Even if she was one of the most annoying, selfish characters I've ever read, an ending would have been nice.
This book was obviously written for someone younger than I am. I usually really enjoy reading YA fiction. I found the 3 main girls irritating and self centered. I got this free for the kindle a while ago. It needed some editing.
The name definitely fits the meaning, or the book. It stars out with a beautiful bubble then it pops! I really loved this book, it was funny and a really fast and good read.
