I loved their advice, or lack thereof, about guys, dating and what exactly Justina might have done wrong. Sep 04, Carina rated it really liked it Shelves: In a mix of The Hangover and Whatever It Takes Justina’s stories go from bad to worse until finally the whole truth is unveiled and shows maybe everything isn’t as it seems.
Read more of my reviews at Nick’s Book Blog Looking at the cover and reading the summary of Ditched, I thought I would be reading a fun, light,hilarious and enjoyable book. This book was just plain amazing!!!
And discover if losing out at prom can ultimately lead to true love. That’s probably because Justina needs to be on some heavy-duty medication to control that bi-polar psychosis she’s got going on.
Justina had finally decided to take the plunge with her date Ian on prom night, they had been good friends for the last couple of months and although unsure of his feelings Justina decided to make the first move.
A Branches Book Dragon Masters The story was told in flashbacks like the Hangover moviebut I found it to be too chaotic. Read and find out: Unhinged is putting it nicely. The story was still cute, but unfortunately, I was just disappointed the way the story was told.
Review of “Ditched: A Love Story” by Robin Mellom – The Surveyor
I remember being a teen and realize now that the things I thought were so important that if they didn’t get fixed right away that I would die, were petty things. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: She was exactly what all of us girls are when we like a boy and have no idea if they like us. Dressing up in taffeta and heels is not her idea of a good time but when Ian, her best friend asks her to go she finds it hard to refuse.
You can tell right away that Justina is into him but he is hard for me. Jul 14, Bethanyv rated it liked it. She talked about it openly, used the lingo, sent some of the characters to a head shop. I went into Ditched thinking it’d be a cute, fun read. I did not love this book. But all in all he is another awesome character who is real that you can relate too, we girls have all fallen for our best guy friend at one point or another or at least thought he was hot.
As I followed Justina’s story I definitely got angry along with her and was confused by Ian’s behavior.
I don’t think it’s robun to accuse someone of being slut just because of the way she dresses. Jen Top Reviewer View all my reviews 7.
Instead information was dangled in front of me and the only way to get it was to read the next chapter. This story starts off with a girl crazy in love, robbin into a turn of events that will have you laughing. She was funny and genuine.
Djtched a Follower All the cool kids are doing it. This is one of my most favorite YA books yet, because the plot hasn’t been used it is kind of like One Night That Changes Everything but not really. I ended up really enjoying Ditched: Justina’s story can be mapped by the stains on her dress, and each interlude nudged Justina toward explaining how she got every stain, rip, and bruise and tattoo.
An Endless Quest Book. I recommend this book especially He was sweet, caring and a very good listener. It alone would have made Justina feel more real. Jasmine Top storu Reviewer View all my reviews To make it even more confusing, Justina’s first person narration started out relating the events in a broken, cryptic, half-explained mwllom frequently noting “but I’m getting ahead of myself” and then dropping that train of thought! This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [this book is very very good but i dont understand the means is sea?
I’m not sure exactly how to explain it but she almost talks about it in a ditzy way with all these interruptions. She assumed that Ian would kiss her and she even planned out the location, the exact angle and well you get the vibe!
The Mikes, her two stoner friends, were hilarious related to this, I was surprised but glad that Robin went there with the pot-smoking. As for the telling of the story. To get the whole store, Justina will have to face the boy who ditched her.
Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde as she was talking to her nail technician. I think that it will definitely find an kellom with the older YA readers. Enter prom, and a series of disasters and miscues and near misses and miscommunications, et voila! A Love Story is her first novel. Karen Klein, Staff Reviewer.
While at theshe earns the sympathy of the clerk and one of the customers. That voice alone could have carried the story without the ridiculous TV sitcom-like execution of the plot itself shoving the story ahead with dangling tease after dangling tease after dangling tease.
