OMG I have to say that this book blew me away! I haven't read anything so funny in a while. Although I do think this book should have been updated for this time period instead of using things like The Brady Bunch etc. As I don't think most teens will get the reference. I didn’t get some of them either and I'm 32. I think that this YA debut was AMAZING! It’s one of the best debuts I've ever read!
In this “coming of age” book you will find what it really means to be a teen. Anika will learn what it means to stop caring what others think and to just be herself. With twists, turns, love, and loss this book fills all the places that a good book should.
I really kind of wish it was a series so that I wouldn't have to bid Anika farewell. I also think that Anatomy of a Misfit would be an amazingly, funny movie!
Anatomy of a Misfit would be something that the school could use for bulling and peer pressure. It will be one of those books that will be called a classic in years to come. This is literature!
If you love snarky, hilarious, laugh out loud reads than this is the book for you! It has real characters and a real story that will make you laugh and cry.
I don't want to say anything else about this book as I don't want to give too much away. But, I will say that YOU NEED TO READ THIS!!!
Go Into This One Knowing
This book uses the F-Word a lot. So be warned! Anatomy of a Misfit also doesn’t shy away from the word Penis, haha.
In this Mean Girls meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower tale, narrator Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl at Pound High School. But inside, she knows she's a freak; she can't stop thinking about former loner Logan McDonough, who showed up on the first day of tenth grade hotter, bolder, and more mysterious than ever. Logan is fascinating, troubled and off-limits. The Pound High queen bee will make Anika's life hell if she's seen with him. So Anika must choose—ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations—and tear at your heart.
