I am torn: I loved 98% of this book, but the last 5 pages made me want to throw my Kindle across the room. I can appreciate a good cliffhanger, but FIVE cliffhangers was almost too much. Almost. Thing is - I care about the characters and want to know what happens to FIVE people I learned to love over the course of the book.Perhaps if I had known that this was a serial series, and I would be left hanging (cough, cough FIVE TIMES, cough), it would have been less upsetting. So I am going to give YO [...]
This book is amazing. It's very interesting and has tons of drama. The book is written in diary form. Every few pages is someone else writing (it does mark who is writing). But the neat thing about this book is that its all REAL. 100% real. These people existed and wrote in their journals. These people are called the Phoenix Five; Jagger, Lily Bader-Huffman, Vanessa Riley, Andrew "Duffy", and Sheridan Spencer. The only downside of this book is that it has a MAJOR cliff hanger at the end, not 1 b [...]
Pretenders is the first book I have ever read by Lisi Harrison. I have heard of her other novels but I have never read them, so I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting into. I have also never read a book in journal format and I am not sure if I really like books written this way.It starts out with a letter from the person who stole the journals from what they call the Phoenix five, or the popular kids. The journals were stolen by one of their own. The one who stole the journals wants everyone [...]
Not a memorable read. Yes, I'm critical, and I was intrigued by the first few pages of the book, but I lost interest quickly. Let's get started with the characters. Shallow, high-school stereotypes. (Not sure if Harrison did this on purpose, to complete the theme of "phony") Sheridan, the perspective the book opens up to, besides the note from "Phoenix", is a girl who aspires to be an actress and is bordering popular. Her entries consist of teenage drama, if I remember, including best friends, r [...]
Pretenders by Lisi HarrisonLisi Harrison is an amazing writer, and her newest book entitled Pretenders, was not at all disappointing. The characters were very realistic, and the plot has little twists and turns that keeps the reader on their toes. Pretenders is the story of 5 different journals that three girls and two boys have written as they embark on a new school year at their high school. Their tales tell about new people and new situations that end up changing their lives.Because the book [...]
I loved it!!! I give it a 4.8-5.0!!!!! I'm really picky about books but this one was really good. I recomend it for middle grade readers to high schoolers that are socially awkward. I found the characters very interseting and very believable. The way the characters and their friends were all connected made me want to keep reading and not stop. I cannot choose a favorite character because I liked them all and I think they all relate to me in a way. Duffy: his family is poor and he has to lie abou [...]
I read The Clique books a few years ago, so I wasn't surprised by the shallow, confused, adolescent [honest? real?] minds of the high school freshman. Like The Clique, the book was a fast read and although the characters were beyond frustrating and immature (but maybe that's my age talking?) I still cared about them. I'm not sure if I want to see them all succeed, but I definitely want to know how they get out of the very deep, very awkward, holes they've dug themselves into. I'll definitely be [...]
Pretenders by Lisa Harrison was an interesting read. Going into the book I did not know that it would be written in journal entries by the 5 main characters, 3 girls and 2 boys. The 5 characters had a teacher who wanted then to full in their entire journal with what ever they wanted too in the span of the invite school year. There was drama between the girls likening the two guys but no one ever knew because it was written in their privet journals. Though this was an essay read it was not my fav [...]
I hated how it ended. Makes you have to read the next Lisi Harrison book in order to find out what happens next. I guess that's the idea though. It was a pretty good read, I won't lie, it kept me going. Very easy read too.
VERY young adult in every sense, but it's still rather interesting. The characters are almost interesting but are too stereotypical and fall a bit flat because of that. Not the best book I've read (maybe I would have liked it more five years ago) but I still want to read the rest of the series.
This book is made up of secret journals, of 5 high school students. Hearing from all the different perspectives help form the story. It is so good, I'm thinking of reading it again. It has so much drama and suspense.
I loved this one. It was pretty good.
I thought that it was so cool how they were all connected but didn't even realize how close they really were. I thought it was really interesting that it was from like 5 different point of views.
