4.5 stars

Wow, this book was amazing. The only unsatisfactory bit about the story that bumped it down to 4.5 was that the conclusion didn't feel complete in the sense that we knew exactly where she was heading after that in terms of life. Besides that, I thought the book was great. The author had recommended this to me personally while I was at a book fair and I had finally gotten down to reading this. I think the part about the book that was the most realistic to me was the characterisation. Jam

Whilst I didn't always like Anonymity Jones, the character, I did enjoy the book. Anonymity is a strong female character with a mostly realistic voice who will appeal to teenage girls, despite the fact that I found her irritating it times. Dealing with some confronting themes, this book is written with a nice blend of humour and honesty, although none of the adults are portrayed in a good way. The story deals with friendship, trust, relationships and family, however, I would only recommend it ...more

Once, in a street not very far from yours, there lived a girl called Anonymity Jones.

Anonymity's life is falling apart. Her father has left to have a mid-life crisis, her mother's new boyfriend is a definite worry, her Europe-bound sister has changed her name (just to make a point) and all her girl friends are now girlfriends, with boyfriends.

And then there's the art teacher.

Anonymity is losing control, and it's decision time. Does she hang on, get out, or get even?

Great opening line, great plot lines converging, great title. I found James Roy very clever in title choice but her friends and family never actually spoke her name so Anonymity isn't actually the girl's name, it's her state of mind or being.

Anonymity Jones is a good choice for those who want all the angst without the supernatural love affair.

This is actually the worst book I have ever read in my entire life.
And I've read Twilight.
Simply awful; don't waste your time.

I found Anonymity and her anarchic sister, Raven, smart, charming and original characters. Roy tackles some pretty serious issues in an understated way.

I like the writing style, but I am uncomfortable with the topic, so I skimmed the last part of the book. I wish I had more courage.
