The Queen of Everything
Jordan wanted a normal life by moving out of her hippie mama's place and into her respectable doctor dad's place. However, Jordan's life is still filled with teen angst with her moody best friend (Melissa), a crush on Melissa's weird older brother, and also a semi-relationship with Kale Kramer, aka Popular Shorty. But what really turns Jordan's life around is that her father is starting an affair with a married woman. You can tell things are about to get crazy...
The plot actually is too long, dragged out, and boring. Honestly, where did all the wonderful praise for this book come from? It was sooo boring.
This story from the very first sentence made me want to continue on reasding and reading till i found out what had really happened. The sotry itself is very heartwarming, and odd in ways. Yet again i love the fact the herione finds someone to love her when things are going down the crapper, with the fact her father has most likely killed his lovers husbands, and her mother does not understand what she is going through. The ending touched me, and showed that everything may not be ok, but something in your life will go right eventually.
Jordan MacKenzie is your average high-school junior. Her parents are divorced and she lives with her dad, she has a new boyfriend, and an after-school job that's only so-so. Her father has always seemed like the "normal" one: he's an optometrist, where as her mother is a leftover hippie who runs a B&B. Then Jordan meets Gayle. Gayle is married, and she's also dating Jordan's father. Jordan feels trapped: she knows it's wrong, but her dad tells her it's his own business. Then things start to spiral scarily out of control, and Jordan feels trapped. This book tells movingly and compellingly the story of a teen who is lost, and has nowhere to run. Although the circumstances are not extremely commonplace, Jordan's emotions are, and you'll be anticipating what will happen next, in both Jordan's life and her father's, for the whole book.
This book was very interesting!!! The plot twisted and turned, and you never knew what was going to happen next. The characters were all their own people I have never read of characters like that. I loved this book.
Wow..I'm really impressed with Deb caletti's first novel. It is so awesome, I couldn't put it down. You really connect to all the characters and it feels so real. I cant wait for Deb Caletti's second book "Honey Baby, Sweetheart" to come up.
Thank you for letting me share this with you.. Everyone (girls) should definetly read this one. You won't be able to stop reading.
Hey I loved this book so much! Once you start reading you can't stop till its done! I had wished it would last forever and I have to thank Deb Caletti for writing it! Hope to see more from you!
