Nks Kori away from Serena she will need to find a way to complete her best friend's life left undon. I am glad I checked this out of the library instead of buying it This is one of those books where the characters are all so unlikable that I didn't want to keep reading about them but the plot was decent enough to make me finish the book The main character Serena finds a list of five things her best friend Kori wanted to do and so she decides to take on the items herself and complete the list even though they're kind of cryptic and she doesn't know exactly what they all mean Kori is supposed to be a kickass bad girl but I was kinda underwhelmed by her; she was too I don't care what anyone thinks and I'm so above this all to actually be cool or truly believed Serena's constant Kori is the BEST refrain got tiring as well and Serena herself was no less irritating as her narration was grating and trying to be all too trendy and flippant The secondary characters didn't feel especially real either and I had a hard time believing everyone's actions Also there is a lot of smoking drinking and drug use in this which is fine I've enjoyed plenty of books containing these things but it's written as if this behavior is so standard and normal that a teen book simply has to include them Although the end of the book was a little predictable some of the thoughts imparted from Serena's teachers were uite interesting like how we all carry burdens for other people without uestioning andor realizing it I suppose I'm giving this 2 stars mainly because parts seemed uite thought provoking Overall however I think the whole book was supposed to be like that and simply wasn't at least for me

E thinks Serena is instantly intrigued But after their friendship solidifies and a twist of fate ya. Initially I thought this book was a poor rip off of John Green's Looking for Alaska but although there were some similarities this went in a different and interesting direction In the end while I wasn't super enthusiastic about it I thought it wasn't bad Rituals of Pleasure ya.

    To say this is a novel about finding yourself is to simultaneously hit the mark and to sell it short because while that is precisely what it is when I finished reading it I felt it accomplished much than the finding yourself bit Thing is it’s hard to define Undone if only because it fits so many categories and themes of self discovery mothers and daughters best friends first loves first temptations missing fathers so on so forth The truth of the matter is it touches on many topics worthy of exploration such as parental abandonment confusing relationships friendships you feel are extraneous until you find out they’re not drunken hookups and many I won’t go into detail here because it would ruin your reading experienceAdded to all of this is ultimately what makes a sane person keep turning pages the most—a mystery The plot is very clever and admittedly sneaky this way filled with intricacies and with hints right there in front of you all throughout but that you don’t take notice until the very very endBut all of what I have said so far doesn’t even touch what struck me most about this novel and that is its accessibility Sure it’s crammed with lessons messages and morals which the reader can’t help but at least consider while reading However the tone of Brooke Taylor’s writing never wavers from that of a witty realistic teen one who taps into your emotions making you laugh cry yes I did literally and feel what she’s feeling in the purest most pristine mannerThis book spoke very personally to me and I’m sure it also will to many other girls or boys if they may be so bold as to read it out there I’d recommend it to anyone but especially to reluctant readers who are not going to be disappointed with Brooke Taylor’s voice

    I have a hard time with young adult novels where a character often a girl is depicted as so badass and cool and amazing and of course something bad happens to her That's actually not a spoiler I couldn't really see why Kori was so great I also found all of the twists predictable and didn't like that everything wrapped together neatly in the end Still it was an enjoyable read and I'm willing to suspend my disbelief of those sorts of thingsThe one unforgiveable thing to me is the constant pop culture reference This book is slated to come out in August 2008 and some of the references are already dated A boy playing guitar at a party plays Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol for no other reason than for the author to show she's IN TOUCH Half of the class lost their virginity to Nickelback UGH and the choir sings a Nickelback song at one point There's also mention of a blog called Postcard Secrets I think many young adults would dislike that sort of patronizing thing

    When I first picked up this book the description led me to believe it’d be about Kori But really only a small part is about Kori Undone is Serena’s story; it’s a story of tempting fate testing the bonds of friendship discovering one’s identity overcoming grief growing up Undone is Serena’s journey but it also offers the reader a journey one that if you allow it can reach the deepest part of your heart and possibly change your outlook on lifeSerena doesn’t know what made Kori decide to abandon her spot in the “popular crowd” all those years ago but she’s grateful Kori chose her as her new best friend Serena idolizes Kori to the point where she dyes and styles her hair so that the two are often mistaken for sisters Kori is brash and bold and fearless everything Serena wishes she could be And Serena can’t imagine life without Kori until she’s suddenly forced the face that realitySerena is an extremely relatable character She’s so blinded by her envy of Kori that she fails to notice her own strong ualities It isn’t until she has to live without Kori that Serena realizes she’s her own person and that perhaps Kori isn’t as perfect as Serena always thoughtIn an effort to cope with the loss of her best friend Serena embarks on a mission to complete Kori’s list of fate tempting tasks Serena thinks completing the list will bring her closer to Kori but it actually ends up teaching her about herself For so long Serena had been so wrapped up in Kori’s identity that she forgot she had one of her own Brooke Taylor beautifully expresses the emotions of a young girl trying to find herself while managing feelings of sorrow suspicion and isolation Taylor’s prose is hauntingly honest and realistic Her story is innovative at times romantic and always gripping It’s one of those books you’ll want to read again and again just to learn something new

    I actually stumbled onto this book by mistake After art class one Wednesday I walked to the library to wait for my mom to pick me up I was already reading like 10 books at once at this time but I went browsing around anyway While browsing through a pile of books I found Undone The copy looked new ish as if it was barely opened Now I usually don’t like covers with people’s faces on them but I just LOVED this cover I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover but that’s exactly what I did I read the summary and I knew I just had to read it Brooke Taylor brings strong characters to the frontlines Serena is a sopho in high school and self described closet gaming geek She is saved from social exile when she forms a friendship with Kori a rebel and the class slut I won’t being giving anything away when I say this when Kori dies Serena puts her own identity aside and “finishes” Kori’s undone list What makes this book truly uniue and thrilling is the numerous plotlines that intertwine to create an underlying mystery that unfolds to become Serena's self actualization Fast pace it keeps you on your toes until the very end It gets right to the point and keeps you entertained all the way through I could not put down this bookThe girls do experiment with drugs drinking etc basically what most teenagers do but it does not endorse that teens should do it This might be a complaint for some people but it made the story that much closer to relating to teenagers A must read

    I was really not impressed with this book The characters fell flat on many occasions and I couldn't figure out why this girl would want to follow in Kori's footsteps I didn't like the content of this book they portrayed teenagers as stereotypical and troublesome which is annoying because not all teenagers act like that The story didn't seem to have much point and I got tired of the main character and how she reacted to all the situations I would not recommend this bookTaken from my book reviews blog

    this book had me and my sister crying by the end of the book the characters reminded me a lot of people i know knew of and always wondered about the overall message and the symbolism through out the book is what stays with you i recommend this to all women
