Hot Mess by Madeline Rosenberg. 239 pages.
I was asked to read a copy of Hot Mess by Madeline Rosenberg and post a review on my blog. Her synopsis can be found below under my review.
This is a debut novel for Madeline Rosenberg and it’s a young adult romance novel told in the third person. There are 4 main characters who’s thoughts we are switched between each chapter. It was a slow start and I had a hard time focusing on the book. It’s like reading a teenage soap opera. There are too many characters who’s story’s we switch between throughout the book that the minute the story starts to get somewhat interesting that thought ends and we are moved along to another character which made it difficult to follow. I was very underwhelmed with this story but that’s likely to do with my age and being out of touch with what teenagers and adults in their early twenties thought process is. If you fall in the age group of 16-20 I think you would enjoy this book, unfortunately I’m over 10 years older than what I would deem the recommended age group.
I would like to thank Madeline for the opportunity to read and review her book. If she were to write a book more suited for the 25+ age group I would be happy to read it.
Anna McCormick seems like a cliché from her basic coffee orders to her relentless drama; however she is more than meets the eye. Join the journey of Anna and Trevor Sullivan through the laughs, tears and heartbreak. Meet the Clairetown crew – each character is more interesting than the next! Warning: you may not be able to put this book down!
Anna McCormick is every girl after a break up- she is vulnerable and seeks attention in the wrong places. She is easy to love and hate at the same time.
Trevor Sullivan is almost too good to be true. He seems like he is perfect on the surface, but there is much more to him than meets the eye.
Benji Shaw is the “perfect” boy next door. He has a bit of a hero complex and wants to fix everyone’s problems.
Tanya Rosen is the quintessential popular girl- everyone thinks she has so much confidence but really she is just as insecure as the next girl.
The book takes an unexpected turn and I think you will be pleasantly surprised!!!
