Lists Make the World Go Round

Reader reviewed by TruBlu93

Georgia Reeves has got only one thing on her mind right now and that is to get enough money to go to the Natural Affinity concert. Shes practically in love with the lead singer, Jakob, and would do anything just to see him, even if she doesnt get properly introduced.

As of right now, she has about 50 dollars to her name, but she owes her mom 10, so, shes very far from the needed 500dollars. But that doesnt stop her. She is determined to go to that concert, so she deliberately goes job hunting. Unfortunately for Georgia, each job ends up just as bad at the one before.

Like worrying about her job isnt enough, Georgia also has to deal with her weight problem, the spaced out relationship developing between her and her best friend, and her grades. With little help from her even more disturbed mom, Georgia is left with the blank notebook her aunt gave her for Christmas. Instead of recycling the gift, as she had planned, she puts it to good use. She starts writing down her thoughts in all sorts of lists. Its a funny exercise, but she gains a lot from it.

Brigid Lowry is a very different author; this was a very particular book. The writing was kinda out of the ordinary yet it easily grabs the reader without hesitation. It was a really interesting read and I enjoyed every minute of it. It reminded me a lot of Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. I would recommend it to everyone willing to read something new ages 12+
