Pdf [The List] Ï Siobhan Vivian

Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask dR the reader to be whisked away to our three rings of plot Sarah with her struggle to prove something to the school borders on psychotic and almost masochistic as she refuses to take care of her body or open up her mind to her kinda sorta maybe not really boyfriend Their relationship is complex in the teen fiction way he practically loves her yet she keeps him at bay because of her insecurities and she pushes away all contact with people with not only her smell but her snide sarcastic prickly attitude that would make a cactus proud These two get the least amount of plot time which I foundisappointing Truth be told I found this whole book to be lacking The relationships the characters have are formulaic not to mention the characters themselves are stereotypical for the YA novels of today Once I Teaching Feminist Activism: Strategies from the Field d like to read a book about an anorexic girl who isn t trying to fit into a promress or look like the cheerleaders Once I Your Beautiful Mind (Mindful Drinking Book 2) d like to read a book about a punk girl who wasn t trying to say Screw you World and lifting her middle finger to the sky Once I like to read a book about two ex friends who Culture Moves didn t break up because one went to join the popular crowd and couldn t bring along the other Once I like to completely follow a girl entering high school after nine years of home schooling and to not have crazy parents This book started with promise Promise that maybe these eight girls were something than just what the list thought them to be Promise that they Message in a Bottle: The Making of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome d find a bond of being Listed Promise that this would be the book to show people that people are people not stereotypes But unfortunately noice It s later Respect Love discovered these girls weren t picked to make their livesifferent Just because the person wanted to pick them Initially I picked up this book because of all the gr Thank you Flannery from The Readventurer for allowing me to read this ARC D With trembling hands she uickly finishes pinning the Introduction To Combinatorial Algorithms And Boolean Functions dress and puts it onthen she twists her hair up adds a bit of lipstick She gets ready without looking in the mirror Sheoesn t need to see herself She already knows She will never be prettySo here s what happens every year at Mount Washington High School A week before Homecoming students walk the halls in search of The List posted and scattered around the school pinned on bulletin boards taped to bathroom stalls shoved in lockers hidden in esks This infamous List elects eight girls two from each class with the honor of either being The Prettiest or The Ugliest for her grade level Sealed and embossed with MWHS s emblem it s what the students of this school expect and the girls fear the most Nonono it s not a prank it s a tradition This book is both brutal and profound in several ways I was awed at how Siobhan Vivian was able to weave this intricate story that involves some pretty harsh realities with a right amount of levity to keep me captivated but never unhinged There were eight ifferent girls this story follows With Vivian s masterful storytelling she s able to capture Plan Colombia distinct voices for each so skillfully that I was never inoubt or confused at who was commanding the stage at the momentLeave it to Vivian to purposefully mold her own characters according to her social interpretations and not use the commonly used stereotypes that other authors lazily fall back on I applaud her for making the pretty cheerleader sensitive and smart for Biologically Inspired Algorithms for Financial Modelling (Natural Computing Series) depicting the girl athlete as vulnerable and insecure the smart nerd as callous and clueless and the social outcast aseserving of her post She made each of these girls feel real but importantly she makes them her own With Vivian you re either going to love or Obumselu on African Literature despise her cast but you have to give her credit where it sue she s going to craft her characters how she interprets the world and you can t fault her but rather commend her for her bold characterizationThere were several reasons I rated this five stars First being I couldn t stop thinking about these girls It was SIN FILTRO Y SIN ALCOHOL daunting to see the ramifications of The List continue to compound as the story unfolds At first consideration you think that only the girls labeled as The Ugliest will suffer right So wrong It was sad to see how even the girls honored with the title Prettiest had resounding effects to their sense of self Vivian shows the reader that there are emotional conseuences regardless of which side of the coin you fall So the moral of the story was that either column you ended up on you re prize is either pressure or pain These young girls are being objectified and labeled according to someone s f%ckwit idea of what beautiful means and my heart just brokeSecondly Vivian takes a very real and current issue and brings it to the forefront insecurity I mean Often it pays to be just in the middle of things to be your ole regular average self because often it sucks to Be At The Bottom at the bottom as it His Abused Mate does to be on top no innuendos intended and The List accurately portrays this reality of life and what better setting can effectively show this than high schoolLabels are annoyingly inevitable part of social life and to young people s crucial formative years labels may tremendously affect their self worth Mount Washington High School s ominous list containing the names of the ugliest and prettiest girls of every grade has become the high school s yearly tradition and whether the girls in the school admit it or not this list has affected them one way or another whether they are in the list or not but worse when they ARE I found myself completely glued in to the novel 25To say that this was one of my most anticipated books of 2012 I am reallyisappointed As with Not That Kind Of Girl I thought this book had the potential to be really good and I m sure the author set out with the greatest of intentions and yet this novel failed to Distributed Systems deliver And I think that was mostly because it tried too hard to be a number ofifferent things and by Teaching: Education and Academics at the turn of the century. doing so was stretched too thin and failed to achieve any of the initial goalsI gave the rating that extra5 star because the book has that compulsive readability I can t be entirely negative about a novel that is so easy to read that you can easily lose a few hours without realising it This is a novel about teenage girls and howifferent an experience high school can be Glitterwings Academy: Midnight Feast No. 2 depending on the way you look and who your friends are How one moment whether fortunate or not can completely change the way you are seen for the next four years I liked that Siobhan Vivian recognised that being labelled in a certain way can be a blessing or a burdenepending on the person involvedThe problem is that the author bit off than she could chew I Counter Discourse in African Literature don t usually enjoy books with than one POV this had eight EIGHT The eight POVs were the girls two from each grade who were labelled prettiest and ugliet of their year by the mysterious author of THE LIST Vivian tackles bullying anorexia friend troubles family troubles boy troubles being an outsider great Five stars for intention But the most any character got was six chapters from their POV and this wasn t enough to fullyevelop this wasn t enough to fully Stoan (Mated to the Alien, develop story and an understanding of the way they felt To fully explore all of those issues mentioned you need a full book on each the idea was just too ambitiousspoilers aheadBut the worst thing that stopped me from giving this the three stars meaning I liked it was the lack of closuresolutions for most of the girls Sorry for feeling the need to include these spoilers but the ending told us nothing about than half the girls Will Bridget ever recover from her anorexia She s still starving herself at the novel S END WHAT WILL LAUREN DO ABOUT HER MUM end What will Lauren Las Hermanas: Chicana/Latina Religious-Political Activism in the U. S. Catholic Church do about her mum to pull her out of school Accept it or fight for her right to a normal teen life What s next for Jennifer Will her and Margo ever smooth things over Is Candace finally going to stop being the bitch she s always beenThere s just not enough And there s not enough because there s too much which is ridiculous I know Too many characters with their important issues that are never fully explored and never given any kind of closure The ending was bizarre I kept waiting for a big come together in the last chapter that would either give me some hope that the girls would be okay or leave me with an important message that summed up what Ms Vivian wanted to say with this bookIf I was toescribe this book in one word it would be unresolved. Ccionadas como las más guapas y las más feas ese año Cada una Double Action Deputy (Cardwell Ranch: Montana Legacy Book 4) de ellas tiene una historiaetrás absolutamente The Alien Corn (The Canadians diferente cada una una personalidadistinta con una voz propia y miedos sueños y Academia Nuts deseosiferentes La interconexión e estas ocho historias nos mostrará lo cruel ue puede llegar a ser la vida en los institut. The List25 stars This book had a lot of potential but was ultimately ruined by a focus on too many topics at once The List is about standards of beauty and how they play into the friendships between girls I liked the message the author was trying to get across Unfortunately the author touches on too many topics without adeuate evelopment or closure In fact the ending barely closes off anything As an example the author is clearly trying to call out slutshaming Unfortunately there are many instances of slutshaming within the book that aren t addressed within the narrative Another example there s an eating History of the Niagara Falls Power Company, 1886 1918, Vol 2 of 2: Evolution of Its Central Power Station and Alternating Current System; Construction and Operation disorder storyline which is never resolved The ending flat out leaves it ambiguous as to whether Bridget will ever recover Perhaps it s meant to arouse feelings in the reader but Ion t feel it works here Rather than actively choosing this open ending it feels as if the author simply couldn t be bothered to close off this storyline I had mixed feelings on the characters Abby and her sister were likable enough Same with Danielle and her best friend I absolutely loved Lauren and Candace s story and their friendship Afghani and 'AbduhAn Essay on Religious Unbelief and Political Activism in Modern Islam development Sarah s character was a standout here as well She s a loner girl who couldn t care less about typical beauty Unfortunately a badlyeveloped romance took away from the impact of her story Bridget s storyline was touching and well eveloped although again it lacked any form of closure The two senior girls I found completely unappealing Jennifer is okay for most of the book and it turns out that she view spoilerdecided to label multiple girls as uglypretty and in so oing ruin their lives I especially hated her slut shaming of Danielle oh no she has a boyfriend and they made out once I should ruin her life hide spoiler Made it through about 50 pages before the shifting present tense among other things ITS NOT YOUR FAULT drove me crazy That s how inside jokes usually are Funny to those inside annoying as shit to the rest of the world Siobhan Vivian The ListThis is going to be a tough book to review I say that because for most of the book I thought it was going to be five stars I loved ituntil the end And if you have read this I am sure you will guess my complaint because I have read several reviews that all mention what I am going to mentionSo this book is from the POV of eightifferent High School girls Every year at this school a list comes out The list contains eight names The prettiest and the ugliest girl from each grade That s itThe book is about the impact of the list for each of those eight girlsthe four voted prettiest and the four voted least prettyI adore realistic YA Fiction and for most of it I enjoyed this book The characters were real and fleshed out and I was amazed at how well the author got into the heads of these young girlsYou know connecting to characters is pivotal in any book And I admire the writer for taking us Unfinished Puzzle down the path of EIGHTifferent girls each so Data Analytics distinctive that their voices were heard clearly and the reader could feel their angst and painAnd unlike some I had no issue with having so many POVS I reallyidn t One of my all time favorite YA books Lois Duncan s Daughters of Eve has I believe TENor possibly POV S So what s eight Works for meWhat The Mystery of Risk did not work for me was the ending And I am not one to take TWO points off for an ending But it was such a letown to such an awesome book and the last book I read this year to complete my reading challenge I was hoping for a fiveENDING SPOILERSOKI could have understood if one or two of the girls were not touched upon But the book Alchemy Arts does not tell us about how things turn out for ANY of the girls Now that is not my thing I invested hours of myay reading this And the end is so sudden I had to go back to make sure I had not missed somethingWe Yo salí del abismo do not know ANYTHING It is like the book HAD no ending You are just reading and it stops Meanwhile all the characters you are invested inI mean you find out NOTHING Youo not even find out what happens at this The Life of Kitty Storm dance the whole book was leading up to The book ends with about two percent of the bookevoted to the Aliens Bride Book danceIo not think these type of endings are hip or cool or thought provoking at all Not when the books seems UNFINISHED Unless this is a start of a new series and I Don T Know That In Which Case I Will don t know that in which case I will apologize and bump my rating up to a five then I Therapy of Love don t get itI almost feel likewhat was the pointAnd Io feel cheated and now the whole book feels a bit manipulative All that fightingeveryone is mad at someone And such eep issues are explored Can we the reader not know anything about HOW ONE THING IN THE BOOK one thing in the book out It maybe one of the oddest endings I ve ever read I am not kiddingI also felt for Jennifer and could not stand Margo even though I felt at the end the writer was attempting to give her some soul It id not work as she may have been my least favorite character And she gets crowned Homecoming ueen That s it None of the other seven girls all in the midst of Feminism and the Women's Movement Dynamics of Change in Social Movement Ideology and Activism Perspectives on Gender deep emotional issues are even mentioned again What givesWhat Jenniferid was pretty horrible but she was one hurting puppy and I got that Margo on the other handI could not feel anything for her but contemptI LOVED Laura I want Laura as a friend In fact she reminds me of one of my closest friends What a beautifully woven characterSo a three rating it is I adored the book for ninety percent and that count for something If you

Is social stigma This is the first time that I read any books by this author and before picking up a copy of this book I wasn t expecting much from this particular book And boy oh boy it surprised me a lot not because of the author s writing style or prose but only because of the story line that the author has flawlessly created and that gripped me through out the entire story line The sharp edge of brutal honesty reflects from each and every pages and that astounded me on how much real the story line felt and how vividly the author captured about a fragile and young world where body shaming can ruin some one s future The author s writing style is okay not that perfect or coherent because there are eight main characters and sometimes it feels tedious to read about the rama happening in their lives The narrative is Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) dull yet it has that power to stimulate the young minds and sways smoothly with the pace of the book The one problem is that theialogues lack the epth of emotions although from the grounds of social morality the whole story is going to incite anger many young teenagers and their parents and eventually finding resolutions and closure in the climax The characters are well eveloped but since there are so many characters somewhere in the story line their personal stories get overlapped eventually that will leave the readers a bit confused The main eight characters reflect authenticity and realism thorough their Activism and the American Novel demeanor Their fight and struggle to overcome from the label be it good or bad is real to the very core and is bound to strike a chords with those who have faced the same situation in their lives The supporting characters are good enough and peak the interest level of the story line The issues that this book raise are very much real and every singleay girls are becoming a victim to this social stigma And the author Agriculture at a Glance Revised Edition deals with this cause with much sensitivity and emotions that will motivate the common people especially the parents and the teachers of the victims to curb this social stigma from spreading The author sends a strong message through this book and it hits rightly through the souls of the people and encourages them to take a step against this issue of body shaming and labeling young girls upon their beauty looks and figure In a nutshell this is a must read book for not only the young teenage girls but also for their parents and teachers that will compel them from their very core to understand the gravity of such a social issue Verdict A book that narrates many everyay fights of young and ambitious teenage girls Courtesy Thanks to the publishers from Harper Collins India for giving me an opportunity to read and review this bool 25 starsGOD this book Legit It had all the potential a total 5 star potentialBUT THE ENDING WHAT THE HELL WAS THATLol funny to say is I m writing this review watching the Victoria s Fashion Show and eating a candy bar But the ending seriously just ruined the whole book Gifs to A Love No Less Two Centuries of African

Limited and NetGalley Freshmen UglistDanielle DeMarco Also known as Dan the Man This was a YA contemporary story about a group of girls on prettiestugliest listThere were several main characters in this and it was uite hard to keep up with them all I felt uite sorry for the girls who were labelled as ugly especially with the treatment they then received from their friendsThe storyline in this basically followed the girls on the list from their reactions to it until prom ueen was announced and showed how things wereifferent for the ugly girls compared to the pretty girls although both seemed to have their own problems to The Arcav Kings Mate (Arcav Alien Invasion deal with so they really weren t all thatifferent at allThe ending to this was okay and I felt that the right person had won prom ueen625 out of 10 Adults sometimes shouldn t review teen fiction Or at least we should get some teenagers to review it tooThe List by Siobhan Vivian is about eight high school girls two from each grade who are put on The List uring homecoming week at Mount Washington High The List is a list of the prettiest and ugliest girls in each grade two for each The book follows all of the girls through the week narrating their reactions the school s reactions and the events that follow because of this list The List is as followedU Danielle Demarco Freshman who is nicknamed Dan the Man because of her athletic ability and worries how her upperclassmen boyfriend will reactP Abby Warner Freshmen who must eal with her unattractive older sister who thinks The List is not an accomplishment at Freshmen who must eal with her unattractive older sister who thinks The List is not an accomplishment at and the fact that she s failing classU Candace Kincaid Sopho who espite being popular almost immediately finds herself aloneP Lauren Finn Sopho the new previously home schooled girl suddenly finds herself with so many friends she can t remember their namesU Sarah Singer Junior who rebels against everything those silly preps Alien do takes it to the next level by being the ugliest she can be for the whole week Even if it means smelling awfulP Bridget Honeycutt Junior who used to be pudgy but thanks to a summerose of anorexia looks better than ever if you can see her from the sidesU Jennifer Briggis Senior who been named Ugliest Girl for the fourth year in a row and now is thinking about being Homecoming ueenP Margo Gable Senior who was assumed to be the Homecoming ueen but now has to face the competition and her guilt from her ex BFFA List of interesting characters no That s what I said too when I first read the flap These girls sound interesting if not relatable Or so I thought until I got halfway through the book By Wednesday it s clear who the main attraction is in this high school circus Jennifer and Margo are center stage with their thoughts about their previous life as inseparable friends until the end of middle school and their unintentional battle for homecoming ueen After all who wouldn t give a pity vote for the girl with the unheard OF TITLE OF UGLY FOR FOUR title of Ugly for Four Abby and Danielle share their ring pretty evenly all without coming in contact with one another Abby 10 Essential Survivor Secrets to Liberate Yourself from Narcissistic Abuse deals with her freshmanrama of finally becoming noticed enough to be invited

insecurity that her Sopho boyfriend s friends are making her boyfriend forget she s really a girl Not to mention she s attracted the varsity swim coach s attention pointing a big red arrow to the already freak flag she thinks she s flying These girls have nothing to o with each other except that Abby s been invited to Danielle s boyfriend s party and Danielle hasn tOn the other side of our three ring circus is Bridget and Lauren also two cast members who entertain the audience separately Lauren the Sopho who s been lonely and shy her whole life finds herself surrounded by people now that want to be her friends Sure the reasons aren t pure but she s just glad these girls want to talk to her Nevermind that her lonely mother and somewhat sadly her best friend sees right through their act Bridget falls off the wagon after just starting to eat healthy again after the summer but The List made sure she wasn t touching a crumb until the ance This ring isn t ualified by how much these two interact but by how much time the author spends on them Which is sadly a lotAnd lastly but in my opinion the most interesting is the side show attraction of Sarah and Candace Candace used to be popular and had to be picky with who got to hang out with her on what ay but thanks to picky with who got to hang out with her on what ay but thanks to List those Coming Out of Communism days are gone Sarah in her ever consisting battle to show the school she won t succumb to their social standardsecides to forego personal hygiene from showering to changing even her underwear for the entire week until the Ways of Knowing About Birth dance These two characters for me held the greatest potential Candace with her struggle of maybe being a bitch isn t such a good idea Maybe she knew that all
