Book Review #557
Clubbing by Andi Watson, illustrated by Josh Howard
Rating: zero stars (out of four)
Okay, who published this novel? Did they even read this book or did they just take a quick glance at the first couple pages and go, "this looks interesting" and print it off right away? There is no excuse for this kind of book being published. The main character was so stereotypical goth/girly-girl I wanted to gag. I could not stand the way she acted and I wanted to slap her for being so annoying and whiney. I think a lot of girls would find this book offensive because of the way the main character is portrayed, especially with her outrageous and revealing outfits. No normal teen dresses like that. Don't even get me started on the plot for this book. I seriously have no clue how someone thought this was a good story line. The ending of the book was one of the most ridiculous and crazy things I have ever read. I have no clue why they thought they needed to throw THAT element in and than the main character basically shrugs off all the drastic things that have happened to her and goes about her normal business. This is ludicrous and stupid. I would never recommend this book. Actually, I'd recommend that someone take it off the shelves of libraries and bookstores so that other people don't have to read this nonsense.
