I was a little worried when starting to read this because everyone said it was fantastic. And I really wasn't in the mood for a major dispointment. Thank god I was satisfied. Serena was such a fun character to read about. There were so many funny things that she said, and it wasn't overly played at all. I've actually used some of their comebacks. fuahaha. I couldn't fully understand Serena's relationship with Kori though. Kori was always being to cruel and heartless. Yeah I know in the end Kori is there for Serena, but who would put up with it? Why would Kori keep something so big from Serena for so long? I just find it hard to believe that two people so "close" and dependent on each other could make each other feel so crappy. Still I looked past this remembering all of the horrible things my friends and I went through and all the crap they pulled with me. Sometimes it doesn't matter. That aside I loved the whole story. Kori dying really changed and affected Serena. I enjoyed reading about how Serena trying to BE Kori, but in the end learning how to really be herself. Overall I think that Undone was one of the first books I read that showed a REAL friendship that isn't all cupcakes and rainbows.

My first review on this thing, I'll post the back blurb first then jump into the review.

Kori Kitzler is the "dark angel" of her high school: beautiful, mysterious, the subject of rumors. Serena Moore is just an average girl, until a run-in with Kori in the bathroom in eighth grade. When Kori tells her that they are more alike than she thinks, Serena is instantly intrigued, and their fateful friendship begins.
When the girls are asked to complete a writing assignment listing the five things they would want to happen--their five ways to tempt fate--Serena doesn't take it seriously. But when something tragic happens to Kori, Serena is left with her loneliness and Kori's five things. Can Serena complete her best friend's tasks, or will she leave her list undone?

Now doesn't that sound good? This author is the best author i have read so far, like ever! The way that she captures the way teenagers think and act is uncanny, and somewhat weird. The main character Serena, is best friends with the crazy and out going Kori. But then something horrible happens to Kori and this effects Serena in a way that is so in depth. You really have a feeling for this character from the very beginning. You will laugh and you might even cry, and even for a fictional book this story feels real. The characters are so well developed, that you will hate some of them and love the others, and be on the side lines with the rest until the very end. The secrets that are kept and revealed will really surprise you. People you need to go and pick up this book it is titled Undone by Brooke Taylor and it is amazing.
It is truly the best book and everyone must read it. Now I'm going to go and read The Devouring by Simon Holt

Serena Moore is just an average blond haired blue eyed computer geek. That is, until Poor Josh spills something on her shirt and she has to run to the bathroom. In the bathroom is Kori Kitzler, the "dark angel" of their high school, says they are more alike than Serena thinks. Mesmerized Serena becomes Kori's friend.
Both girls have to do a witting assignment for school about tempting fate, they have to write five things they would like to happen. Serena, being her normal self, doesn't take it seriously, Kori does. When something horrible happens to Kori Serena is left with her loneliness and Kori's list. Serena is then challenged to complete Kori's list for her, but is she up for the challenge, or are there some things that must be left undone?


This book was seriously amazing!
Brooke Taylor not only writes about the trials of teenage life, she tells it perfectly through the eyes of a teenager. I can picture all of the characters of this book as teenagers in my school, or as real adults seen through the eyes of a teenager.
The book is told through the first person point of view of Serena. I love how she's so quick to think up sarcastic or witty comments , but like most teenagers edits what she says unless she's talking to her friends.
The story line was amazing, i was constantly trying to find a good spot to put it down so i could study for my final exams, i couldn't even find one (i hope i passed the tests). It wasn't like most teen books these days, it had substance, and a moral, but it just added more intrigue to the story line.
I can't wait to read more books from this amazing author.
