I enjoyed reading this, but mostly the second half really brought the book together and saved the story. I don't think there was much depth until then. The main character is a boy and his group of friends, but I can't picture many middle school boys ...more

A nice change from Picoult's normal moral dilemmas, this story might not have had her normal solid writing but it was certainly entertaining, sad and poignant all at once. The story follows many narrators - Jenna, the 13 or 14 year old daughter of a ...more

This short story is from King's compilation of Full Dark No Stars, but I re-read it as a single story due to the movie coming out on TV, though I haven't had the guts to watch it. A nerve wracking tale of a woman that discovers her husband is a seria ...more

Graphics are not my forte, as I repeatedly mention, but I feel bad scoring them since I have such a difficult time. I really liked the premise, but the first story had very difficult illustrations for me to follow. The other two were better. I think ...more

I couldn't put what I thought about this book into words, but BioGeek from Shelfari summed it up perfectly ... especially the bit about it being just a tad too long. 100 pages less and this would have been a perfect read.

Elaborate and beautiful (odd) writing dynamic - Sometimes the words and imagery threw me for a loop, the book reading as if a student was creating the most vivid imagery possible for a class writing assignment - but it was effective. I can hear the e ...more
Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes
"ANATOMY OF A MISFIT is what happens when your favorite Sara Zarr book and the movie HEATHERS get drunk and make a baby. By turns snort-into-your-palm funny and arrow-to-the heart observant, this book is ultimately a bust-your-soul-to-smithereens l..." Read more of this review »
