Everyone in my high school told me to read Perks because it would CHANGE MY LIFE. Uh, no.


Tatiana I am pretty sure it won't, Mupples.


Jessica-Robyn I don't think this is the type of book I could dub "life changing". I've just started it but Charlie just seems like a very odd kid, with a bit of a story. I think I'll like it but it's too early to tell.


Spider the Doof Warrior It really is good...


Lucy It's the sort of book where the author DESPERATELY wants to be the person to change your life and writes endlessly about significant books that actually do things like that.

Sounds about right, Lucy

Annika I couldn't even get through the sample of this one because of the writing. And I wanted to like it.

Megan, out of all YA books, this is what gets so much acclaim?!


Spider the Doof Warrior I can identify with the main character.

It has to be because of the issues. This book is simply overflowing with so many sensitive & taboo subjects ~ people always flock to that sort of thing. Reviews for this are interesting. Generally the negative reviews are from adult readers of YA and the positive ones are from teens. Can't wait to read your review though :)


Tatiana I can understand why it was popular 10 years ago - exactly like you said, taboo, all the sex and drugs. But now? I guess, it's easy to read and very busy with all the drama.
