I cried, praying for him to finish. I closed my eyes and tried to envision myself somewhere else… somewhere where I was happy. I thought of my family all piled around our tree on Christmas morning. I thought of singing with my band. I thought of Clare and I baking cookies and watching movies together. But after just a few seconds of pretending, Mike would hit me or thrust ...more

I just finished BARREN and was floored. Stacey is a very relatable character. She’s constantly making mistakes and desperately trying to feel better and feel alive. I empathize with her and her experiences. When I read the book, I could literally feel what Stacey was feeling. I loved how graphic and real the book felt. The author definitely did not shy away from awkward situations and I am impressed by that. Beyond all of that, I love the dating aspect of the book. I love her relationship with A ...more

This book was definitely a roller coaster of emotions for me, but in such a great way. I read it all within a day...I just didn't want to put it down. I had to know what Stacey was going to be up to next...at times I was envious of her life and at other times I felt complete sympathy for her and wished I could have given her a hug. The author did an amazing job with the wording and making generally awkward things to read about completely intriguing. I can't wait to find out how Stacey will handl ...more

Such a wonderful book. Unafraid and uninhibited, Miceli discusses issues that are all too common. I urge everyone to read it and break the silence surrounding something we all so desperately need to address. You don't need to be a "young adult" to read and appreciate this or relate to it. Such a fantastic job!

Can Stacey overcome what happened to her and change her life? The author writes a very emotional story about the typical problems that the youth of today face.

If you love a good romance novel then check this out! It's a raw depiction of what us girls may go through as we evolve through adolescence. I can't wait for the second book to see what happens to the main character. The author has really put herself out there with this edgy and all consuming novel. Loved it!
