    1 thought on “Nothing in Particular”

    1. You know what you say after eating that banana split? “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing!” Well guys, I can’t believe I read the whole thing.The following review are my opinion. It was unsolicited except for the random reading of the tweet from the author, which I did not respond too.So take a deep breath, perhaps crack open a bottle of wine or pour some Irish Cream in your coffee because you will need it.As I have mentioned before, grammar is not my strong point. I struggle to place [...]

    2. Betty Sue is mad! Everyone give her some space because she is pushing me away from the keybo…Tcabingodddess-minion-reviewhis author has lost her ever-loving mind bless her little heart! If she had a brain she would know that real southern people are going to read this and freak out. Indiana is not a southern state and they do not have thick accents. There is so much wrong with this that I want to scratch out Leanne’s eyes so she doesn’t have to subject herself to the crap in this book. At [...]

    3. I came to this expecting a light teen romp; a coming-of-age tale where fish-out-water kids butt heads with small minds in small town Indiana. What I did not anticipate was the topic of child abuse and the intense, often disturbing depiction therein. Dealing with these disparate threads in the same story is quite a task, but the author handles the juxtaposition with no small grace, and considerable aplomb. Thus the harrowing ordeal of Kiera Graves, the novel's 16 year old protagonist, is used to [...]

    4. doesn't allow anything less than 1 star, and I will say right away that this book doesn't even deserve that. What utter and complete drivel. I made it as far as I could, but just couldn't take the terrible plot holes, the author's inability to write in anything but a cliched, angry tone reminiscent of my high school days. A proficient editor with at least a sufficient grasp of the English language and the nuances of punctuation and sentence etiquette may have helped this book, but to be honest, [...]

    5. I read this book in a few days - I really wanted to see how things turn out for the main character in the book. I could relate to her in many ways, and felt like I really got to know her and her friends. I also enjoyed the time period it was set in - 80s alternative/punk! The author is a great person and I have enjoyed getting to know her through social media, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to buy and read her novel. Hope she writes more!

    6. Full disclosure: I worked on both editions of this book. TRIGGER WARNING: abuse of various kinds.From the first chapter, I was hooked. I had to know the fate of Kiera Graves.Kiera starts out with only the support of her small, close-knit group of friends, and the emotional support of music. Over time, she finds a few more allies - some completely unexpected. She gets to celebrate some moments of joy, even while her life seems unsalvageable. And in the end well, you'll have to read the book to fi [...]

    7. A passionate and powerful read about hard-hitting subjects, with characters you want to care for. The novel will stick with you long after you've turned the last page.A story for everyone who roots for the underdog and relates to the misfits!

    8. Enjoyed this book. The story is very contrived but, well written. Should maybe be in the young adult category. Very emotional!

    9. Kiera Graves is a teen-age girl with big dreams who is stuck in a small town where she serves as a virtual slave to her abusive parents––especially her father, who is a school administrator and protected by the community––but every time they knock her down (literally and figuratively), she gets back up and defies them by surviving. She's supported in her struggle by a small group of close friends, a few adults who see the truth, and by disappearing into her love of music. It's the eighti [...]

    10. Oftentimes, I felt like the main character was "trying to hard." She seemed almost obsessed about being original. Being original is more of something that comes naturally, but she seemed like she was forcing it. Still, the book was good. I liked that it got into the topic of abuse, but it didn't make you want to throw the book in disgust, which is the feeling I often get from abuse in books, such as the books by Ellen Hopkins. This broached the subject (rather intensely at times) while still mak [...]

    11. Nothing in Particular is a very engaging book. The depictions of child abuse and it's aftermath ring true. The author tells the story with courage, humor and compassion.

    12. My main problem with this book is the hypocrisy of the narrator, Kiera Graves. She, along with her little group of friends, is an outsider at her high school because of her music choices, manner of dress, etc. She rails against being judged for being different, and says, “we don’t think that being closed-minded about people, ideas, or music is very smart.” Yet throughout the whole book, she makes harsh judgement of others and is essentially “closed-minded” about them. She mocks both st [...]

    13. A bit harsh at times for my taste but sometimes life is harsher than we would like it to be. A great read.

    14. Learn how to write subtext, then disassociate your real life with this story.Your resentments don't necessarily translate to interesting reading.
