Laurie Halse Anderson’s Twisted is one hell of a hand grenade launched into the canon of teen lit! Tyler’s senior year is about to start and things are looking like this: community service for the Foul Deed is about over, classes are going to be hell, and the hottest girl at George Washington High has Tyler on her radar…as does her a**hole brother, Chip. Ty has changed a bit as well - the summer of landscaping has given him a new physique, and a new confidence, but like Aunt May says to a transformed Peter Parker, “with great power comes great responsibility.” And who exactly is going to teach Tyler how to be responsible? This is where Twisted really gets going. Talking to the overworked, distant father is a certain heat getter for Tyler, so that option is out. Ty’s best friend, codename: Yoda, has learned everything there is to know about life from Star Wars - not a bad place to learn a thing or two, but it’s not Tyler’s holy grail of worldly wisdom. Then, there is “The Party.” Not to give anything away about that, but I’ll just hint that this also is a story about how one’s past screw-ups can make others point the finger at you when some really scary stuff hits the fan.

Gisela It's actually Uncle Ben that says that iconic quote to Peter Parker or at least that's who says it in the movie.


Briyana Your so right
