“16 reasons why my life sucks” ho aperto la cartella del libri da leggere e mi è saltato subito all’occhio e se mi chiedete dove diavolo l’ho preso, cosa che mi sto chiedendo anche io, vi rispondo che davvero non ne ho idea, ma sono contenta di averlo letto, period.

Kate Reynolds sta frequentando il suo junior year ed è convinta che la sua vita faccia schifo. Ha una sorella perfetta Erica all’ultimo anno che sarà valedictorian (la persona che ha i voti più alti della senior class che fa il discor

When you're feeling depressed and feel like nothing will ever work out to you, that's when you read 16 reasons why my life sucks. There are several prons and cons to take into account for this book, I'll start with the good ones then.

Kate believes her life is one the of the worst ever. This is not surprise since she is a sixteen year old girl, most of them believe that. Of course her reasons are futile, but aren't them all? I think the (only?) good thing about this book is how you can relate to

This is my first non children book that I've read. Yes it's bad. It has some typos, a very cliche plot and boring characters.
But as this is my first teen book that I've read I don't have the heart to say anything bad about it. So to start with the storyline it was good.
The events of the book were written in easy English and understandable vocabulary.
The characters weren't the best nor the worst they were OK. Kate was your average insecure teen with a bossy sister. The sister was the person wh

In the story, Kate gave reasons why her life sucks. A great amount or chunk of the story is spent on the building up of Kate and Matt's relationship. I enjoyed reading about the two of them. You see, Kate seems always angry at Matt -- a childhood friend who's popular at school. Whenever the two of them meet, she's always snarling at the poor boy. Then, unexpectedly, Kate gets starred at a school play and she's got to spend time with Matt.

Matt was the character I liked best in the story. Well, th

16 reason why my life sucks is my first novel of author Sara walker and may be it will be the last also.
its not a bad novel and i would recommend it for light read. But having said that you are not gonna miss anything if you give this book a skip. Story line is too predictable and characters are not fully developed. Apart from lead roles Kate and Matt other characters are there for show only. Due to which one cannot relate to them.
All in all its just another same teenage love hate relationship k

If you want a story that would make you go frisson – a kiddie-like frisson that is – then 16 Reasons Why My Life Sucks is the book for you.. although, for me, the story didn't exceed my expectations. Also, the twist has made a little impact on the story so that it was easy for me to almost predict what would happen next.

Moral lesson: Look around you. There are many positive things in life that happens everyday. You just have to pay attention. Even to the smallest detail.

well this was a fast read but there were a decent ammount of typo's. best quote from the book

When you guys are gone I plan on throwing a huge
kegger party, strip naked and streak down the street and then pass out in front
of a 7-11 allowing for the strange homeless guy to rape me and force me to
join a suicidal cult. Please.

i will atleast give the book that the extreme levels of angst were atleast hummerous.

I love this book because i love Kate she reminds me so much of my good friend in high school who claimed to hate everything had a sarcastic comment about just about anything but still lovable. Kate might complain about everything but she knew who she was and didn't lie to herself and while she complained she always helped out. God i love her for her outspokeness,(is that a word?), and her self awareness.

I'd give it a 4 if there weren't so many typographical errors. Kind of predictable, in a cutesy sort of way. Having grown up in upstate NY, a lot of things were familiar to me.

Gobsmacked. How on Earth did this get published? So many typographical and GRAMMAR errors. I found the dialogue hilarious at times, but it just wasn't enough to redeem this teen-y, clichéd story.
